Red Book Tag

MORE TAYLOR SWIFT CONTENT FOR TAYLOR SWIFT’S BIRTHDAY.

Riddhi tagged me in this Red Book Tag.

This one is NOT as long as my previous Red Book Tag and has slightly different prompts.

Let us BEGIN.

Rules:

  • Link Back to original post Nashita @BooksandBrownies
  • Thank the person who tagged you and link their post
  • Tag 4 people because 1+3 = 4
    (Taylor’s number is 13 and hence )

1. Red – A red book that you love with a burning passion

(This book is more pink than red, but I’m counting it. Otherwise this would be another gushy post about House of Earth and Blood.)

I have been trying to narrow down my Top 10 Books of 2021 list.

The Charm Offensive came and swept all categories.

The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun

I am in love with this book.

It’s one of the most inclusive queer books I’ve ever read and the romance made me BAWL.

2. I Knew You Were Trouble – A book you knew would cause you emotional trauma

There’s a reason I haven’t picked up A Court of War and Ruin.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

I am trying to make it through the rest of 2021 relatively unscathed.

3. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – A book you’ve cut ties with

I’m unhauling my copy of Jesus Feminist.

This book offered comfort and perspective at a time when I felt alone.

Jesus Feminist by Sarah Bessey

I hope it encourages its next reader just as much.

4. I Almost do – A Book you know is trash, but you love it anyway

Every critique of the first Simon Snow book is valid.

I still love Carry On with all my heart.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

That said, my last reread was a strange experience.

I’m just now noticing how often revolutionaries are villainized in fiction.

Criticizing institutions is apparently fine, but tearing them down? Heresy.

5. All Too Well – A Book you remember everything about

It’s possible I could recite The Love Hypothesis from memory.

(Please don’t test me on this.)

The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

Ali Hazelwood has three novellas coming out next year and I AM STOKED.

6. Begin Again – A book that got you out of a slump

Since reading Little Thieves, I have been finishing books left and right.

Little Thieves by Margaret Owen

Little Thieves ENERGIZED me.

This was such a creative retelling of a haunting fairy tale.

If Margaret Owen did a Donkeyskin retelling, I would sell my soul to read it.

7. Everything has Changed – A book you knew you would love at the first sight

I instantly fell for the paperback edition of Yaa Gyasi’s Transcendent Kingdom.

Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi

I loved Gyasi’s debut novel and can’t wait to dig into the spiritual meat of this new one.

Happy 32nd birthday to Taylor Swift!

I’m supposed to be watching a stream of Eternal Darkness.

I think I’ll relisten to Red instead.

Oh, I should tag some people.

Meghan ~ Sofi ~ Dai ~ Elli

Happy TS listening party to you all.

  2. Thank you for tagging me! 😊
    You know, I’ve read the whole Simon Snow trilogy… and just didn’t like it all that much and I have no idea why I kept reading 😅 I can see why people love it though.
    I am now curious about The Love Hypothesis. I’ve seen a few people talking about it and it seems to be loved!

    1. You’re welcome! Swiftie content is a must!
      Those books are very compelling and fun, even when they aren’t!
      Listen, I am Reylo trash, so I am compromised. I would still recommend The Love Hypothesis because of all the Feelings.

      1. Yes it is!
        And hmmm see I’ve heard it has a lot of feelings and I just don’t know if I’m ready for that right now, so maybe I’ll add to the never-ending list and maybe pick it up when I need the feelings!
