Hellllo!! So I know this tag was buzzing around the blogosphere a while back, but I didn’t have the chance to do it. But since Maas’ next instalment in her retelling of Beauty and the Beast, A Court of Wings and Ruin, is finally out (and sitting comfortably on my kindle, no doubt having to endure a bit of a wait before I can actually read it) I thought now was the perfect time to do this tag!
Thank you so much to all the wonderful bloggers that tagged me to do this:
They’re all absolutely fabulous- so you should check them out!!

“Tale As Old As Time” – A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading
So I mentioned this yesterday, but I feel like I can’t go through this entire post without mentioning Rhysand at least once, so I’m going to go with the “secretly a sweetheart” trope. You know the type- they seem all edgy and probably have a troubled past, but really they’re a candy all wrapped up and waiting to be eaten- delicious! (I may have got carried away with that metaphor)
Belle – A book you brought for its beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too.
My copy of William Blake- technically I got this as a gift from my sister, but it still counts!
Beast – A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you
I literally expected nothing from this book- but boy did I end up loving it.
Gaston – A book everyone loves that you don’t
Oho I’m gonna get in trouble for this but I really did not like the Sun Is Also a Star– maybe it’s just my age, or maybe it’s because it reminded me of a poor man’s Ruby Tanya crossed with The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.
Lefou – A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart
In many ways I not-so-secretly loved Sevro the best in Red Rising
Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumière & Cogsworth – A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable
Easily Man’s Search For Meaning.
“Something There” – A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end
Shatter Me– I definitely got into this more as it went on.
“Be Our Guest” – A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner
Will from Infernal Devices.
See you all in the next post!
