For those that may not know, I love reading and I am such a big book worm, so I cannot wait to get started with this tag. This post has also inspired me to listen to Taylor Swift’s new album, I haven’t listened to it yet. I just put her album when I started writing this post.

The One: A book with an ending that left you speechless
The Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. I don’t want to say anything to spoil it, but just whoa! I loved the movie, too.

Cardigan: A book that makes you feel happy and sad all at once
Pretty much anything Nicholas Sparks. I love his books and movies. I remember being very obsessed with his work in high school. The first movie I had seen of his was A Walk to Remember, and the first book I read of his was The Longest Ride.

The Last Great American Dynasty: A book with a fascinating and extremely well-told story
The Harry Potter series. I loved it, it was extremely well thought out, and magical.

Exile: A book you wish you hadn’t read
Hm… I’m drawing a blank with this one, because I can’t think of a book I didn’t wish I had read. Maybe a school text book of a subject I didn’t have an interest for.

My Tears Ricochet: A book that made you cry uncontrollably
When I was in middle school, the book that made me cry uncontrollably was, and still does is Charlotte’s Web. And now when I was older, I would say Go Ask Alice. It was written anonymously as journal entries about a girl goes to a party and how she got addicted to LSD. It’s really sad, but I read it because it was my friend’s favourite book.

Mirror Ball: A book that feels like it was written just for you
I feel like the book, Year of Yes was written for me. I’m a huge Grey’s Anatomy fan. And the book is about encouraging us to be more confident with yourself. It seemed like the perfect book for me to remind me to be more confident with myself.

Seven: A childhood book that makes you feel nostalgic
Matilda and the Little House on the Prairies series. When my sister and I were young, our Dad took us to the video store, and we always picked out Matilda and we watched it over and over again. I finally read that book a few years ago, and it was absolutely amazing. My mom and I used to read to Little House on the Prairies when I was in grade school. That was a lot of fun. Although her and I never finished it, because life happened and we got too busy to keep on reading them. So I’m going to read them on my own. My mom used to read these books when she was growing up, too.

August: A book that reminds you of summer
Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. I saw this movie for the first time with my sister and her two closest friends at the time. It was a great film. It wasn’t until years later that I read the books. I adored the books so much. It’s about four best friends who are best friends throughout their whole lives, and have never spent an entire summer apart until they were in high school. They went shopping at this thrift shop, and came across these pair of jeans. Despite their different body types, Bridget being taller than her friends, the pair of pants magically fits all of the girls. They decide to wear the pair of jeans throughout the summer, and mail them to each other, documenting the special moments that had happened to them.

This is me Trying: A book that deals with loneliness and sadness
The first book that came to came to mind was In Search of April Raintree. It’s about two sisters whose parents are alcoholics and they end up getting put into foster care. Although the sisters get separated and one gets put in a better foster care and the other sister doesn’t have much of a better life than when she was when she was with her parents. It always makes me sad.

Invisible String: A book that came into your life at the exact right time
You are a Badass by Jen Sincero. I absolutely loved reading this book. At the time I was having a challenging time with myself. I kept on doubting myself and selling myself short on things. But after reading it I appreciated and loved myself more.

Mad Woman: A book with a female character you adore
Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird. I admire everything about her. She is an extremely strong willed kind of girl.

Epiphany: A book that is haunting
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware, read this book really fast since it was so good. It started off a bit slow, but near the middle, it gave me goose pimples. It was a really good book. I would recommend this book who is looking for a good scare.

Betty: A book that fills you with yearning
Ron and Hermione. I absolutely love them! I loved Ron’s lack of passion for school and studying and how it is oversets Hermione’s passion for school. To me, they have a lot of opposites, and I guess that is something I used to look for in a guy, too.

Peace: A book character you’d die for because you love them so much!
Carmen from The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. I love her character and how much growth she goes through throughout the series. I can relate to her because she was the writer of her group of friends, and her parents get divorced. And I was able to relate to what she goes through.

Hoax: A book that you thought you were going to love but didn’t
I can’t seem to think of a book that I haven’t liked. I guess I have a knack of picking out good books.

    This was a great post! I loved reading your answers 😀 Ooh yeah I loved reading the Little House on the Prairie books when I was younger! It was my first introduction to historical fiction (at least learning about a different time period), which I’m really thankful for because it’s now one of my favorite genres. Growing up I enjoyed adventure and fantasy books the most! Which genres did you enjoy as a kid?
