It’s official I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte last week so when I saw that there was an inspired book tag, I couldn’t resist! Plus I’ve yet to do an Autumn inspired book tag, so enjoy! If you’ve done this tag, then please leave a link to your post in the comments as I always love reading other peoples answers.
Pumpkin Spice Latte – A Book Everyone Likes to Hate on But is Delicious
This one is for all of my OG YA books that we all loved once (and still love secretly), I’m talking about Divergent, City of Bones, Red Queen, The Selection ect! Having re-read some of these recently, they’re not as good as I remembered them to be but they still hold that special ‘first love’ spot in my heart with their cliche packed adventures and characters that just love to hate! They were the books that paved the way for the new stories we love today.
‘Fall is my favourite season’ – A Cliche you Can’t Get Enough of
Autumn has always been my favourite season, and I don’t care if that’s a cliche, I love all the big jumpers, changing leaves and those cosy evenings by the fire. Anyway, I’m a sucker for an enemies to lovers trope or any type of competition cliche, so if you’ve got any good recommendations then I’d love to know!
Sweater Weather to T-Shirt Weather – A Book You Thought was One Thing but was Completely Different by The End
I recently finished The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde, and I knew it was going to be a spooky read but I wasn’t expecting it to be so insightful and thought-provoking. Dorian is such a wonderfully complex and beautifully broken character who endures a personal journey of introspection, corruption and a is character who in turn forces the reader to contemplate their own morality and the depths of the human soul. The Picture of Dorian Grey is a quotable masterpiece and I can’t recommend it enough.
‘Spoops’ – Do You Have a Spooky Book on Your TBR?
Yes, The Chalkman by C.J. Tudor! I picked up a signed ARC of this book when I was doing my work experience at Penguin Publishing and it has been sitting all forgotten on my shelf ever since. This year I wanted to make a conscious effort to read more spooky reads in the lead up to Halloween so I’ll definitely be reading this one soon.
Tarot Reading – A Five Star Prediction
I’m sorry if I keep going on about this book it’s just that I’m so excited that I managed to get my hands on it from NetGalley! I can say with 100% certainty that The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E Schwab will be a 5-star read and I might even be bold in saying that it will be featured on my yearly favourites post! I’m only 50 pages in and I’m already in love, the characters, the writing style, the storyline, its all perfect!
Sephora Sage + Crystal Set – A Book that Missed the Mark by a Landslide
The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green. It might just be an age thing but this book seriously missed the mark for me. It was marketed as a ‘Six of Crows’ meets ‘Game of Thrones’ and that couldn’t be more misleading! I found the characters bland and boring and the storyline unexciting and disappointing. It sounds harsh, but I went into this book with great expectations and finished it very much underwhelmed.
