Hello, my fellow Spirals!
So I actually saw this blog on Whispering Stories first and really loved it. Me being a fan of Taylor Swift since 2010 couldn’t have been more pumped about Red TV and now it’s her 32nd birthday!!! So without further ado let’s get into it!
This tag was originally created by BooksandBrownies.
1. Red – A Red book that you love with a burning passion
Ooh we start with a tough one. I think I’ll have to say Big Bang by Simon Singh. The main reason is because it is a non-fiction book about , well, the Big Bang. I don’t think a lot of people have read it and when I did it absolutely blew my mind away. I couldn’t shut up about the book or what I learnt and annoyed my parents (who had no interest in the topic) about it for weeks.
2. I Knew You Were Trouble – A book you knew would cause you emotional trauma
Going into any Kristin Hannah’s book means being mentally prepared for a total breakdown. For me it would be The Nightingale which was my first book by Kristin. I really really loved the book and sobbed my guts out at the end.
3. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – A book you’ve cut ties with
The Hanging Garden by Ian Rankin. I literally just gave away this book last week because I really disliked the story. You can find my review for the book here.
4. I Almost Do – A book you know is trash, but you love it anyway
Quite a tough one for me actually…Oooh no wait, I know which one. I’ll pick After by Anna Todd for this. I know the book depicts a lot of masculine toxicity and the characters are so problematic. But when I read it on Wattpad years ago, I devoured it and enjoyed it so much.
5. All Too Well – A Book you remember everything about
My obvious pick should be Harry Potter or Percy Jacson but lemme go in a different direction and pick The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I recently re-read this book for the 3rd or 4th time and it still managed to destroy me in every possible way.
6. Begin Again – A book that got you out of a slump
I’ll pick The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. This book got me out of a 3-4 years reading slump. Even though it wasn’t some amazing or brilliant book, it was definitely fast paced and kept me hooked enough to stick with reading.
7. Everything has Changed – A book you knew you would love at the first sight
Circe by Madelline Miller. I mean the cover in itself is so gorgeous but the main reason I knew I would love this book is because I am a sucker for anything Greek Mythology.
And that’s it for the book tag. I’d further nominate:
