The Count To 10 With Me Book Tag

Hello, reader!

It’s Thursday which means it feels like a good time for a book tag! I was tagged by the lovely Danni @_ForBooksSake to do the Count To 10 With Me book tag. It looked like so much fun there was no way I wasn’t going to do it! So, of course, I want to thank Danni for tagging me ❤ This tag was created by The Bumbling Blogger’s partner on YouTube, so thank you to them, as well!

Now, let’s get to the post.

First Book In A Series

I feel like it’s been awhile since I’ve talked about Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko. It probably hasn’t been, but this is the first book that popped in my head! This is the first book in an incredible YA fantasy duology that has become an all-time favorite. The first book is definitely my favorite of the two. It’s immersive, engaging, and I found it very hard to put it down. I’ve re-read it so many times in the past two years which is a big deal for someone like me! I adore this book so much.

Two Or More Copies Of The Same Book

Welp, can’t use Raybearer again 😂 I’m gonna go with the book I have the second most copies of: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern! This is also an incredible book and an all-time favorite. That’s why I couldn’t resist when Illumicrate announced their 10th anniversary edition! It’s absolutely stunning and I’m still trying to find an appropriate place to display its majesty.

Three Colors On The Cover

I just picked a random one for this, but I do love how colorful the covers for the Heartstopper series by Alice Oseman are. I recently finished volume two, which is why it’s the one I picked, but they are all beautiful! Also, I adore Nick and Charlie and look at how happy they are, I can’t 😭 This is such a beautiful series that always has me in my feelings when I read it. I really need to watch the Netflix show now, I’ve been hearing such great things about it!

Four Or More Perspectives

Scorpica by G.R. Macallister definitely has a ton of perspectives throughout the book. To the point where it could get a bit confusing! Still, I enjoyed watching all the characters we follow change and grow as the story goes on. This is story that focuses heavily on the characters and their development and less so on plot. I enjoyed the plot, but it was a slow burn and I know that won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. Still, I had a great time with this book! The audiobook is also incredible.

A Five-Star Read

I’ve had quite a few five stars recently, but the most recent (and maybe the favorite?) is The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin! Which is such a freakin’ relief because I was worried going into this book. I put off reading it for ages because I had hyped it up so much in my head, I figured there was no way it would live up to expectations. Jokes on me, it blew my expectations out of the water! This book is incredible and I know I’m like the last person to read it but, if you haven’t, GO READ IT! Please? It’s so good 😭

Six (Or More) Short Stories

I don’t read a ton of short story compilations, but Vampires Never Get Old edited by Zoraida Córdova and Natalie C. Parker was a hell of a lot of fun. Maybe horror short stories are where it’s at for me, haha. I loved the creepy, gory stories that were told throughout this novel. I definitely have my favorites, like the ones written by Rebecca Roanhorse and V.E. Schwab. They were all a lot of fun to read, though, and it makes me want to give more short story compilations a try!

A Seven On The Cover Or Spine

I gotta go with another recent favorite, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid! This was such an incredible book with so much to say. I both loved and wanted to strangle Evelyn Hugo and I think that’s what makes her such a compelling character. This was another book I was worried I had hyped up too much in my head, but it certainly lived up to the hype.

Eight Letters In The Title

It took me awhile to find an answer to this one, haha. But then I came across this little gem on my shelf. Fireborn by Aisling Fowler was such a great middle grade read. It has adventure, it has action, and it has a wonderful depiction of grief. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book, but I absolutely adored it as I read. Plus, Twelve, our main character, has an animal companion and I’m always a sucker for that.

A Book That Ends On A Page Ending In A Nine

This was even harder than the last question! Thankfully, the one I stumbled across is another recent fave. False Value by Ben Aaronovitch is the last book I’ve read in the Rivers of London series and, so far, it’s my favorite! I love how much Peter Grant has grown as a character throughout the series. It was much more apparent in this addition to the ongoing story. I’m excited to continue the series and see where it takes him and the rest of the Folly crew.

Ten Books In The Series

I’m definitely cheating here. In my defense, it doesn’t say only ten books in the series. The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett has ten books… and a ton more, haha. I’m not very far into the series, mostly because I’m intimidated by just how many books there are! But what I’ve read so far has been a freakin’ delight. I love Terry Pratchett’s humor and the wonderful characters he has created. I really do need to continue on with this series soon.

Not tagging anyone specifically this time, but if you thought this was a fun tag and would like to participate, go for it! Consider yourself tagged! And maybe send me a link so I can read your answers, as well 😄

Until next time, happy reading!
