Today I could have been writing my review of The Ship of the Dead (Magnus Chase #3). But, instead, I chose to torture myself with this bookish tag created by Pocket Jeunesse (that’s a French publishing company, btw).
So today, I’m gonna be talking about some of my favorite books. And before I even begin this tag, I already know it’s gonna be a tough one. So, a little disclaimer: for each of the following questions I have so many answers and I’m only gonna be able to squeeze in a few. Just know, these are some of my favorite books, not all of them.
📚 Favorite stand-alone?
Ok, so first question and already this is hard. I’m gonna go with the first thing that came to my mind… The Host by Stephenie Meyer. But there are sooo many others (such as Carry On by Rainbow Rowell or every Colleen Hoover book ever).
📚 Favorite series?
I have to go with The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. And yeah, I know this isn’t a series but rather an entire universe full of series. I just don’t care (#cheater) 🤷.
📚 Favorite author?
So, I’ve already managed to mention Cassie Clare and I know I’ll be talking about Sarah J. Maas in the next question (spoiler alert). So for this one, I’m gonna say Rick Riordan. And I’m proud to say that, in 2017, I’ve finally got caught up on all of his books 💪.
📚 Favorite book of the year, so far?
I’ve read a lot of great books this year, but none had the impact that A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas had. This book completely wrecked me, and that’s why I love it.
📚 A favorite book you didn’t see coming ?
I wasn’t expecting much before I started reading Vampire Academy and Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. And yet, both of these books completely won me over. This universe is amazing, and I wouldn’t mind more of it.
📚 A book you think everyone should read?
This is the most cliché answer ever, but it’s the truth: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. Because this series is everything. And because my kids will be Potterheads whether they want to or not ⚡🖤.
📚 Favorite book as a child?
When I was younger, I loved The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot (as well as all of her other books).
📚 Favorite book in a genre you don’t typically enjoy?
I’m not particularly picky when it comes to genre. But I never thought I would love a mystery novel as much as I loved One of Us is Lying. This book was just perfect, and now I need more books like that one.
📚 Favorite book that isn’t that well known?
Well, this is a tough one… I’m pretty much a follower when it comes to bookish trends. I guess I’d say Making Faces by Amy Harmon, cause this book is beautiful and has been very successful in France. But I don’t see it that much in English.
