  • Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post!!

willow: a book with a character you can’t help but fall in love with

Julian from Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas!! I don’t think I could scream about him enough. Like, how do you not fall in love with this personification of sunshine? I already want to reread this book just mentioning it.

champagne problems: a book with a broken relationship

No spoilers for The Electric Heir by Victoria Lee (read the Feverwake series please) but let’s just say things start out rocky for Dara and Noam in this sequel.

gold rush: a book you love with all your heart

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender was just so good. Like, I have no words to encompass my love for this book.

’tis the damn season: a book in which the character reconnects with their family/hometown

It’s not the main plot point of the book, but this does apply to Super Fake Love Song by David Yoon. The main plot is about Sunny trying to get a girlfriend, but the B-plot is about Sunny’s family.

tolerate it: a book with a suffering relationship

I haven’t read it yet, but the first book that came to mind was Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me by Mariko Tamaki and illustrated by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell. A book that deals with a rocky sapphic relationship? And it’s a graphic novel?

no body, no crime: a book about murder

(aka, my favorite song on the album!)

The Wayward Children series does a lot, but every so often I forget that the first book, Every Heart a Doorway starts with a murder mystery, so that’s my answer.

happiness: a book that’s an old favorite, but you just can’t relate to anymore

Harry Potter. That’s it, send tweet.

dorothea: a book featuring an old (or strong) friendships

The Rise of Kyoshi by F.C. Lee has very complicated and old friendships in the background as Kyoshi becomes the Avatar. Her masters are really going through it. It also results in, what I argue, is the most brutal scene in the Avatar canon.

coney island: a book that made you cry // completely destroyed you

It’s really difficult for me to shed tears over books or else I just don’t remember. I do believe The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid got me close.

ivy: a book that was an unexpected favorite

When I saw this book had a decent amount of reviews and a so-so rating by GoodReads standards, I went into it with low expectations. But I left A Blade So Black by L.L. McKinney absolutely screaming for more. Where is the fandom for this? Where is the hype this book deserves?!?!

Also under this category are The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco (if you like sapphic fantasy, you are SLEEPING on this!!), Be Dazzled by Ryan La Sala, and Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno!

cowboy like me: a book about thieves, or criminals

Surprisingly, I haven’t read a lot of books with thieves (I have many heist books on my TBR though, I’m just Waiting). However, I remembered Stage Dreams by Melanie Gillman starts with a stagecoach robbery!

long story short: a book that made up your childhood

The Dear America series was the majority of my middle grade reading. It solidified my love of historical fiction and let me learn about all different aspects of American history.

marjorie: a book with a moving message

Felix Ever After said that your identity is fluid and you’re allowed to not be sure how you identify and I LOVE it for that!!

closure: a series in which you NEED to read the next book

A Blade So Black and The Never Tilting World both apply to this, but I also need to start Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi. It’s just sitting pretty on my shelf.

Also, I am in desperate need of the book 2 announcements for the Great Cities series by N.K. Jemisin and the Between Earth and Sky series by Rebecca Roanhorse.

evermore: the perfect conclusion to an extremely long (but worth it) series

I can’t really think about a long series that’s concluded that I’ve finished, so I’m going to just hype up Kim & Kim by Magdalene Visaggio, Eva Cabrera, & Claudia Aguirre. It’s a sci-fi graphic novel about queer bounty hunters getting into all kinds of trouble and I love it for them.


If you love Taylor Swift, consider yourself tagged!
