Harry Potter Book Tag

1. An upcoming release you wish you could get your hands on right now.

I am literally dying right now. I thought this one was being released in April (as that was when book one came out and, until recently, when Goodreads said this one would be published), so when I realized it wouldn't come out until August... It's a cruel, cruel world. 

2. Favorite series starter.

It's really a tossup between this one and An Ember in the Ashes, but since that series already got some love, ACOTAR it is. Few books made me feel like this one. I cannot WAIT to get my hands on A Court of Mist and Fury, but in the meantime I'm catching up on the Throne of Glass series.

3. A book that gave you all the warm fuzzies. 

Truthfully, I don't usually get the warm fuzzies from books (I'm cold-hearted), but this series was just so adorable I could hardly stand it. At least until The Heir...

4. A book that made you ugly cry. 

Remember that one time when I said I was cold-hearted? Well... I've actually never cried over a book. This one came really close to making me cry, though (for obvious reasons, I'm guessing). 

5. Bookish hero or heroine you want around to protect you in real life.

Acheron is basically the biggest, baddest, most powerful hero in the book world. I think I would definitely want to have him around in any kind of pinch. 

6. A book you intentionally spoiled for yourself.

Okay, so I never, ever spoil books (or movies or shows) for myself intentionally. That being said, I did watch the Harry Potter movies before reading the books, so I guess that's almost the same thing.

7. A book you wish you could make everyone read because you loved it so much.

I tried, but I can't help it. This book is just too good to only get mentioned once. I already forced my dad to read it and now I'm working on my brother. It's just amazing and I feel like it has something for everyone! 

8. A book or series you wish never ended. 

Okay, so I know that series have to eventually come to and end, but just... WHY though?? Rosamund Hodge writes magic and torture and beauty and I love her books and I'm just so devastated that there won't be more books in the Cruel Beauty universe!

9. A book with an uplifting ending or message. 

I've just realized that I don't read very many uplifting books... Oops. This one had a lot of ups and downs, but is a beautiful, amazing book with an uplifting (very) ending. Close enough!

10. A book you wish you could forget you ever read. 

This book made me rant SO much! It was stupid and ridiculous and it pissed me off. I could not stand the way the gods were handled and the slut shaming was just the cherry on top. Suffice it to say I didn't pick up book two. 

11. An author whose books always get you out of a slump.

Anytime I find myself in a reading slump, I return to my Harry Potter re-read. Even if I only read a few chapters, these books always bring me out of it!

12. A swoon-worthy hero or heroine. 

Can we please just take a minute to admire Morpheus and how gorgeous and swoon-worthy he is? Every word out of his mouth makes me melt. I can't wait for Untamed so I can get another Morpheus fix!

13. A book that caused you to stop doing all other things until you finished it.

Her Dark Curiosity was actually the second book in the Madman's Daughter series, but it was my favorite in the series!! I stayed up all night finishing this one! This is definitely one of my favorite series.

14. A book that was painful to read (for whatever reason) or broke you.

If you've read this book, you know about that moment. That one moment that completely ripped my heart out and stomped on it. I've mostly recovered.

15. A book that had you laughing out loud.

As it turns out, I don't read many funny books either. But Crown of Midnight had me laughing out loud and wondering what the heck was happening when a doorknob started talking.

16. A book that made you want to send it (or your eReader) flying.

This book made me angry for a lot of reasons. I really wanted to slam my Kindle into a wall while reading about the relationship between Abby and Travis. Unpopular opinion, I know. 

17. Bookish world you wish you could visit.

I could answer this one with about a hundred different options, but I'm trying to spread my answers out instead of favoring just a few (amazing) books. I think I could most certainly settle for Neverland with Captain Hook...

18. A book with a shocking twist or ending.

Crimson Bound was so twisty and ohmygod I loved it so much! I want to read so many more books in this series because my heart literally cannot keep up with it! Unfortunately... see #8.

19. A character death that destroyed you.

I am actually saying nothing about this one. You're welcome.

20. Best series conclusion.

All of my yes to this book! I loved Mara Dyer so much from start to end. It completely blew me away and the ending is no different. Ugh, I need to re-read this one ASAP!
