Bookish Book Lover Tag

Hey, everyone!  I’m coming to with a book tag created by Shantelle Maryh.  I saw this tag on http://www.gossamerpages.com and decided to participate.

Had a long week, so far, and it’s only Thursday today.  Let’s hope the rest of the week flies by without any further problems…  Here’s hoping!


Rules: 

  • Use the banner
  • Answer the questions
  • Use lots of book covers
  • Tag some friends

  •  What book are you currently reading?

Currently, I am reading the Interventions series by Hilary Dartt.  I am now halfway into the first book and am enjoying the story a lot.

  • What’s the last book you finished?

The last books I’ve read, last week, was The Blood of the Hydra by Michelle Madow and Craving Beauty by Jennifer Silverwood.

  • Favorite book you have read this year?

Right now I am leaning towards the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.  I have read the first four books and am hoping to read the last two later this month.

Last year my favorite series was the Starcrossed series by Josephine Angelini, and I still think of this series as my ultimate beloved series ever.

  • What genre have you read the most this year?

I am partial to reading young adult fiction in general.  I enjoy any and all paranormal books.

  • What genre have you read the least this year?

I don’t read much in the line of contemporary novels but have started looking into reading more of this specific genre.

  • What genre do you want to read more of?

Contemporary novels.

  • How many books have you read this year and what is your goal?

I started my goal of reading 50 books at the beginning of August, and at this stage, I am way behind on this goal.  So far I have only read 8 books.

  • What is the last book that you bought?

The last book I bought is Reflection Pond by Kacey Van Der Karr.  This book is on its way since I got it through Amazon, and should arrive at the end of the month.  Yay!

  • What book are you saving up for to buy next?

These three books are next on my ‘to be bought’-list.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake; Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare; Witch’s Pyre by Josephine Angelini.

  • What is a book you cannot wait to read?

  • What series would you recommend to everyone?

I have never recommended a book to everyone because I believe that every person has their own taste when it comes to books, and what I like might not be what everyone else likes.

If you like Greek mythology and paranormal young adult books, I would suggest the Elementals series by Michelle Madow (this series is growing on me).  Also, the Starcrossed series by Josephine Angelini is an amazing series, in these categories.

If I had to choose a series in the contemporary category, I would recommend the Dimily series by Estelle Maskame.  I have read book one and two, and actually enjoyed this series a lot.  Be advised that book to ended on a huge cliffhanger for me!

  • Who is an author you hope writes more?

Of course, the first author would have to be Stephanie Meyer.  I know there is a lot of controversy around her writing, however, I really want a sequel to The Host.

Also, I want to read more stories by Yelena Black, the author of Dance of Shadows.  If you love dancing (ballet), then this is one book I’d suggest – I could not put this book down.

  • Name a few books that your heart adores?

Only a few?  How much time do you have?  There are so many…

  • What series’ coming conclusion makes you sad?

At this stage, I am a bit behind on the series that are relevant currently.  One series I wished hadn’t ended so soon was the Anna Dressed in Blood series by Kendare Blake.

  • What books are on your wishlist?

There are way more than I could probably read in one lifetime, but I am ready for the challenge.

This is one of the longest book tags I have participated in, and I enjoyed every second.  It took me a while to answer each question since I wanted to make sure that you guys know why I choose the books I do.

Love Always,
C

Creativity is my passion, and I have been told that my soul is old, and my body young... Dunno if that is true, but... Anyhoe, gonna start with book reviews, and hauls of the new books I acquire. Maybe if I am better with this blogging thing, I'll expand...

  1. I wish there was a sequel to The Host, too!!
    Great tag. I wasn’t a fan of Craving Beauty that much, but I hope you like it.
    These tags ARE long, and that’s why I never have time to do them!!

    1. Dance of Shadows really surprised me, I initially thought that it was a type of suspense mystery, but realized that it is in fact a supernatural mystery. I really wish that I can find the second book soon. I loved the first one…
