I’ve found yet another tag on YouTube that I haven’t actually been tagged to do, but I’m doing it anyway. The Bookstore Book Tag was created by Britt Reads.
The beginning of your trip. You walk into a bookstore and you instantly feel happy: Name a book that has the perfect beginning.
This one was easy since I’m reading it right now. But basically it opens with the main characters in a horde of zombies and they JUMP OVER THEM ON A MOTORCYCLE.
That sad moment when they don’t have the book you were looking for: Name a book that made you bawl your eyes out.
If you read Jellicoe Road and didn’t cry, I don’t even have words for you.
That moment you’re just looking around and find a random book that just speaks to you: Name a hidden gem.
Oh my god this book is amazing. Toxic homoerotic f/f friendship OF MY DREAMS.
That moment you finally find the book that you were looking for: Name a book that you’ve waited months and months for to be released.
So I read Illuminae like five months before it came out, which meant the wait for Gemina was EXTRA long and excruciating. And then I got Gemina at BEA.
And I didn’t read it.
And I still haven’t.
I’m the worst.
That moment you see a book with a gorgeous cover and you just have to have it: Name a book you bought purely because of its cover.
When I bought this, I wasn’t sure I would like it. I hated the Grisha books. But loooook at it. I had to have it. Luckily, I fucking loved Six of Crows and it’s now a FAVE.
That moment you have to pay a lot of money for your books but still feel very happy you finally have them: Name a book that made you suffer, but you were still happy about it.
Seriously, I could have used Six of Crows for this question, too, but Graceling is a perfect fit. There’s a lot of joy to be found here, but you have to earn it. There were a LOT of tears.
Walking out of the bookstore feeling super happy and excited: Name a book with the perfect ending.
I’m sure you’re tired of me screaming about this book but if you haven’t read it yet, you NEED to. That ending, guys.
It’s always nice to take a little trip through the bookstore, don’t you think?
Tagging anyone who wants to join!
