Happy Friday, everyone!
This Wednesday I did the road test for my full driver’s license. When I woke up in the morning, it was like this outside:
With all the snow on the road, I thought I was doomed. Oh, Canada :’)
Despite this, I PASSED!!!!!!
Anyhow, even though there is snow in my corner of the universe, it is still fall (right!? RIGHT?!) Which means that I can still do…
Thank you to Beth @ Reading Every Night for tagging me! It was super fun to brainstorm the answers. Beth is very kind and sweet, and her blog is awesome, so be sure to check out her post, as well!
A book on your TBR that looks so great you can’t wait to get into it.
Apparently this is a parody of Harry Potter! I was a big fan of Harry Potter growing up (and still am!) I also loved reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, which tells the story of a fangirl of Carry On. I think this one is going to be right up my alley. 🙂
A book to get lost in.
Once I started reading this book, I couldn’t stop! Just when I thought I got the hang of what was happening, there was another plot twist that blew me away.
A book that scared you.
To be honest, this one was a toss-up between Illuminae and Gemina. Both were freaky at certain parts of the book and gave me chills up my spine (as I walked my dog in pitch black at night while listening to the audiobook.)
The latest book you picked up/purchased.
I absolutely loved this new book by Jasmine Warga. It is such a feel-good story about love and family that made me feel warm and fuzzy.
A book that is lyrically beautiful.
A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind cutting up.
Guys, this is going to be an unpopular opinion: There was so much hype around this book a few months back and I was so, so excited to read it. But I couldn’t deal with the cookie-cutter main characters who were attractive and shallow, and the romance that felt forced. The lack of research stuck out like a sore thumb. Without giving anything away, there was some drug research that went on in this novel: That is not how drug research is done. Nope. Nuh-uh.
Drinking Apple Cider:
A sweet book to curl up with.
Such a cute story. I loved Simon and Blue through and through, from beginning to end.
Jumping in a Leaf Pile:
A book that reminds you of your childhood.
I couldn’t resist these nostalgia purchases ❤
Scary Movie Night:
Your favourite spooky read.
Gillian Flynn is my newest obsession. After reading Gone Girl (which I absolutely loved, even more than the movie), I couldn’t resist reading another one of her works. Dark Places did not disappoint. It kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. And yes, there were a few moments when the hair at my neck stood on end.
A book with an eclectic cast of characters.
I absolutely loved the diverse cast in this novel. Molly is a self-proclaimed “fat girl” (we really don’t see much of that in fiction, do we?) She and her twin sister Cassie (who is gay) are born via sperm donation and raised by two mothers. Did I mention that Cassie’s girlfriend is a Korean-American who is pansexual?
I tag these awesome people:
If you have already done this tag, or if you don’t like to do tags, (or if it is already winter where you live), no worries! On the other hand, if anyone wants to do this tag, go for it!
