Red (Taylor’s Version) Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today on the blog, I’m bringing a music inspired book tag. This is the Red (Taylor’s Version) Book Tag as created by Tiffany @ Gazer of Books! Now, I’m not the biggest Swiftie, but I do like her a lot of her music. Folklore was on repeat in my car for an embarrassingly long amount of time. I also love her current project of redoing her old albums so they reflect how she really wanted them to sound. So, while I wasn’t waiting with bated breath for the release of the new and improved Red album, I still enjoyed it when it came out.

That being said, when Tiffany put out a call for bloggers who would like to be tagged, I jumped at the chance. Now, let’s put some music and get to the post!


The Rules:

  • Link to the original creator and her post: Tiffany from Gazer of Books
  • Declare the rules and list of prompts in your post (Feel free to copy the original format and graphics!)
  • Tag all the Swifties in your life!

The Prompts:

State of Grace – A Painful Romantic Love

Though I don’t know how their romance will ultimately end, the first one that popped into my mind was Alyce and Aurora from Malice by Heather Walter. Everything in this story is conspiring against these two and it makes my heart hurt! I loved this story quite a bit and I’m eager to see how their love story will end in the sequel.

Red – A Book or Character That Makes You See RED

Ooo, do I get to talk about my hatred of Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë again? Because that book is the WORST! I apologize to all the WH lovers out there, but I hated this book so much, I “lost” it as soon as I was done with it. I liked literally nothing about it; not the characters, not the plot, not the writing. Everything about this book made me want to raaaaage. Ugh… never again…


RED blurred background, text says: Treacherous - A Book You Couldn't Help But Buy

Treacherous – A Book You Couldn’t Help But Buy

Definitely House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas. Look. I wanted to try a SJM book and this cover was very pretty.

I also came across it in a Target, I believe, and I just… couldn’t… resist! I snapped it up and now it sits on my TBR bookshelf with all of my other impulse buys 😂

Still, I am excited to read this one!

WWW Wednesday: Dec 1, 2021

It’s time for another WWW Wednesday! This is a bookish meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words where bloggers answer the 3 Ws:

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

If you’d like to learn more about any of these books, click on the cover to be taken to the Goodreads page.


Current Reads

  • BBNYA Finalist #2: The reading for the final round of BBNYA continues and, so far, it hasn’t done me wrong. I’m liking this read, so far, though I can’t tell you much more than that, atm. I can’t wait til we finish up this year’s contest so I can talk about all the books I read! There were some really incredible ones, that’s for sure.
  • Forget Me Not by Anca Antoci: I just started this one today at lunch. I’m reading it for a The Write Reads blog tour and, so far, I’m enjoying it! It’s an interesting story and I’m really vibing with the main character. I’m hoping I continue to love it.

The Fantasy Tropes Book Tag

Hello, reader!

It’s Tuesday, which is the perfect day for a tag, yeah? This one is right up my alley because it’s the Fantasy Tropes Book Tag! Fantasy is my favorite genre, it’s what I gravitate towards the most, so you know I’m excited to do a tag focused around the inherent tropes.

We all know how long it takes me to do tags. This time, it took so long I got tagged twice 😅😂 So I want to thank two of my favorite bloggers, Danni @ _ForBooksSake and Erika @ And On She Reads, for tagging me! They both have incredible blogs that cover books of all genres and you should definitely check them out 💖

Alright, let’s jump in!


The Rules:

  • Mention the creator ( one’s peculiar )
  • Answer the questions
  • Tag as many people as you like
  • HAVE FUN!

The Prompts:

1 – The Lost Princess – A book/series you lost interest in halfway through.

When I first started the Anita Blake series, I was into them. Like, really into them. I tore through the first few books and was hungry for more. And then they just kept coming. And the actually story line started getting a little… dull. Which is hard to do when your main character is a vampire hunter and there’s lots of paranormal sexy times going on! I think I stopped at book 10 and I have no interest in going back.

2 – The Knight in Shining Armor – A hyped book/series you were swept up by.

The hype around The House in the Cerulean Sea was real! I had been hearing about it everywhere and it certainly piqued my interest. But, as happens sometimes with hyped books, I kept putting off reading it because I was nervous the hype built my expectations way too high. Funnily enough, not only did this book meet my expectations, it blew them out of the water!

3 – The Wise Old Wizard – An author who amazes you with his/her writing.

Erin Morgenstern. Hands down. When I read The Night Circus, I knew I would read absolutely anything she wrote. That’s usually a decision I reserve until I’ve read at least two things by an author! My faith was solidified when I read The Starless Sea which I loved as much if not more than her first book. Her writing is just top tier.
