Yes, that’s right, we’re really hotting up towards Valentine’s Day so I’m here to tell you of my one true love… books 😉 And it just so happens that I have the perfect tag for the occasion- that has for some reason taken me FOREVER to get round to (I’m talking years- so if any of you folks feel bad about not doing tags, look at my example and weep with relief 😉 ) Long overdue thanks to the fabulous Quirky Book Nerd, the amazing Analee@Book Snacks and the indomitable Vicky@Books and Strips!
Phase 1: Initial Attraction – A book you bought because of the cover?
I bought the entire Pledge series cos it was cheap and I loved the covers… and boy did I live to regret it!! The worst thing is the covers are sort of pretty- but I really don’t care for them much now. (Plus they’re on my kindle, so what difference does it make?!)
Phase 2: First Impressions – A book you got because of its summary?
Well I do this for most books- but I’d say I loved the summary of Vicious- the concept just sounded so cool- and boy was I right!!
Phase 3: Sweet Talk – A book with great writing?
Gonna go full on classic here and say The Great Gatsby– no one does tightly woven, flowery prose quite like Fitzgerald.
Phase 4: First Date – The first book of a series that made you want to pick up the rest of the series?
Ooh I could say a fair number of books for this- but I’d say Red Rising was a stonking good read and cos it was so good I ended up reading the series back to back #noregrets
Phase 5: Late Night Phone Calls – A book that kept you up all night?
Plenty of books have me reading into the late hours. One memorable book I stayed up all night to finish Court of Mist and Fury- which was kinda poetic considering the subject matter!
Phase 6: Always On My Mind – A book you could not stop thinking about?
Gosh- so many- I think I’m gonna go with Neverending Story- cos it ended up being surprisingly thought provoking.
Phase 7: Getting Physical – A book that you love the way it feels?
My copy of Hans Christian Anderson Fairy Tales:
Phase 8: Meeting The Parents – A book you would recommend to your family and friends?
Depends on the family member! I have to admit- I think the book I’ve recommended most often to friends is Picture of Dorian Gray cos it’s just a really universal book that everyone can enjoy.
Phase 9: Thinking About The Future – A book or series you know you will re-read many times in the future?
Phase 10: Share The Love – Who do you tag?
And I really want to know, what books did you make a mistake cover buying? Let me know in the comments!
