PLANNING: a book that is completely thought out
Whilst I haven’t finished this series I’ll have to say A Song of Ice and Fire given that I was reading the second book and saw some heavy foreshadowing (that I knew about thanks to the tv show) and I was torn to pieces.

FOCUS: a book that kept your undivided attention
I only started it the other day, I’m already over half way through, and can’t stop thinking about it! So very easily it has to be The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman.

DELEGATING: a book that should have been a series
Whilst I adore every page of Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Maria Griffin I would do anything to read more about Sweet James and Bobby Dearest.

SMALL GOALS: a book below 150 pages that you loved
Definitely When The Sun Sets by Lou Yardley! Its 50 pages and scared me a fair bit.

PEAK HOURS: a series you could only read at a certain time
I think I want to pick Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas because I really loved it when I first started it. I’ve gone back to it this year to finish it and whilst I’m still enjoying it but not to the same extent.

LISTS: a book that you finally crossed off your TBR
I believe my answer goes hand in hand with the last one because I read Tower of Dawn this year, finally!!!

PROACTIVE: a book that is/was ahead of its time
I literally have no idea what book to pick for this one because I don’t really read older books so how can I judge? The Stand maybe?

DECLUTTER: a series you wish you could unread
I only read one in the series but Shatter Me. That was gorram awful. Remove that absuive dynamic from my memory thank you.

MULTI-TAKSING: books that you read at the same time
Literally ANY BOOK that I’ve read ever lmao. Don’t you know me?! Look at all these wow.


And ta-da! I wrote a post in an evening whilst also working on a powerpoint presentation you’ll see next week on twitter probably. I’m tagging Imi, Amy, Bec, Beth, and Jenny.

Do you dis/agree with anyof my answers?

  1. YES!!!!!!!!!! Shatter Me WAS abusive and horrible!!!! I’m SO glad I’m not the only one that thinks so because literally I hear everyone raving about it and everyone is in love with Warner and I’m just like NO. HECK NO. It makes me SO freaking angry. >:(

  2. I loved how you actually did this tag on time, because I NEVER do them in them ahahaha. I think the earliest I did one was a month after being tagged. so happy that The Devouring Gray had your attention because it’s one of my most anticipated releases of the year and I have no idea why i haven’t gotten to it yet. tbh, i feel like you did yourself a favor by hating shatter me and refusing to continue on because I don’t think the sequels are worth it and the new books are meh.. and I’m the type of reader who tries to read books at the same time but I inevitably favor one of the books i’m currently reading and then dedicate all of my focus on it so books sit on my currently reading shelf on gr for a loooong time

  3. I am in awe of your ability to so promptly write up a tag and get it posted, I don’t think that’s something I’ll ever accomplish as a procrastinator and tag hoarder oops.

    Song of Ice and Fire is definitely super well-developed! I read an article the other day about how part of the reason it’s been so long between books is that GRRM lets it kind of “grow” organically based on what’s consistent with the established characterization and plot threads – the wait is frustrating, but it definitely makes for a satisfying read when things come together.

    I haven’t read When the Sun Sets but I really love the Wayward Children series – according to Goodreads they’re all in the 100-200 page range, and they all left me wanting more of the story but happy with what we did get.

    I see a lot of books on my TBR on your multiread list, hopefully I’ll get around to reading them sooner than later 😅 though probably one at a time, I personally tend to be more of a monoreader unless I’m bored and/or deliberately pacing myself for a buddy / book club read.

  4. SO MANY BOOKS I’M ADDING TO MY TBR!! You even read more books at the same time than I do xD I think the most for me was 9.. awesome tag and I loved your answers :)

  5. lmao I’ve nearly finished Shatter Me and honestly, Warner can get in the bin. Though I’m intrigued to see how the series progresses haha. I think the most books I’ve read on the go were 11. It was a time, but now it’s usually 2-6 it really depends if I’m “actively” reading them or I started them and put them down for some reason

  6. I also read at least two books at once! Different books for different moods and in different formats!
    I’ve only read Shatter Me and I do not get the Warner hype!

  7. Yay thanks for tagging me, this sounds like so much fun! I’m sad you don’t love TOG as much anymore but totally understandable tat reading tastes changes over time. I’m also super shocked to see OWFS mentioned ;)
