A huge thank you to Reg @ she latitude for tagging me for The Book Courtship Tag! I’m hoping to catch up on all these tags/nominations and STAY caught up!
Phase 1: Inital Attraction
- A book you bought because of the cover
And I Darken by Kiersten White
I mean, just look at that cover. Gorgeous, right? Too bad the actual book wasn’t as great as the cover. So disappointed.
Phase 2: First Impressions
- A book that you got because of the summary
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
Like the heroine of the novel she adores, Jane Steele suffers cruelly at the hands of her aunt and schoolmaster. And like Jane Eyre, they call her wicked – but in her case, she fears the accusation is true. When she flees, she leaves behind the corpses of her tormentors.
A fugitive navigating London’s underbelly, Jane rights wrongs on behalf of the have-nots whilst avoiding the noose. Until an advertisement catches her eye. Her aunt has died and the new master at Highgate House, Mr Thornfield, seeks a governess. Anxious to know if she is Highgate’s true heir, Jane takes the position and is soon caught up in the household’s strange spell. When she falls in love with the mysterious Charles Thornfield, she faces a terrible dilemma: can she possess him – body, soul and secrets – and what if he discovers her murderous past?
This book just sounded really good. And luckily, it stood up to my expectations. Awesome book.
Phase 3: Sweet Talk
- A book with great writing
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
This book was so beautifully written… almost poetic. I enjoyed every page.
Phase 4: First Date
- A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
OMG, I loved this book!! There’s no way I wouldn’t have continued reading the series after entering this magical world. I’m anxiously awaiting book three!
Phase 5: Late Night Phone Calls
- A book that kept you up all night
The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar
So deliciously creepy and strange. I couldn’t put it down. A definite must read.
Phase 6: Always On My Mind
- A book you could not stop thinking about
Seeing Evil by Jason Parent
I can honestly say I’ve never read a book like this before. It was horrific and gruesome… and totally awesome! This story has stuck in my mind ever since I read it.
Phase 7: Getting Physical
- A book you love because of the way it feels
I mostly read e-books. So I don’t really have a book I love specifically because of the way it feels…
Phase 8: Meeting the Parents
- A book which you would recommend to your family and friends
The Lake House by Kate Morton
This is such a beautiful, inspiring book with an awesome twist ending. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone of all ages.
Phase 9: Thinking About the Future
- A book or series you know you will re-read many times in the future
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
One of my favorite books/series! All three books are truly amazing. If you love YA Fantasy, this series is a must read.
Phase 10: Share the Love
