🙈 Series I Need To Finish 🙈

I have been talking about my favorite series for so long and I really want to make a list, but there are so many that I haven’t finished yet that I do want to give a chance to be on my list, so here are the ones I need to finish.

Raven Boys by Maggie StiefvaterTheRavenCycle

I’m halfway through this series and completely in love with it. I can’t wait to finish it because I feel like it will definitely be very high on my list, but I can’t say that yet since I haven’t read all of the books.

The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson

I read book one in 2015, it’s been a while since I’ve read it, but I remember really enjoying it, and now, since the entire series is out, I want to finish it. I’m super excited to find out where the series is going from the second book out and I can’t wait to finally get around to it.

The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

Can you believe we’re here? Can you believe after probably an entire year of complaining about not reading it, I have? That’s right, I finally read Lady Midnight, my review is going up on Monday. I loved it to shreds, I have an actual book hangover right now which is slowly leading towards a book slump which I am just totally unprepared for right now and I need to read Lord of Shadows soon, especially since the final part is coming out in December.

holly-bourne-books-spinster-clubThe School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

Again, a series where I bought all of the books, but have only read the first. I really enjoyed the first part when I read it, it was so unlike any other fantasy book I’ve ever read and I want to know how the series concludes, but I have yet to get to it.

The Spinster Club by Holly Bourne

I love Holly Bournes books, I think they’re amazing, and after I read Am I Normal Yet? in 2015 and only recently found out that there are more books in the series, I really want to get around to finishing it. I love her books so much and I can’t wait to see how the story continues, since I think it’s more of a companion series than an actual series.

Shades of Magic & Monsters of Verity by V.E. Schwab and the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi

These are books where I have yet to read the first book and the series in general, but I do want to give them a go before making my list, since they’re so highly acclaimed and I’m super hyped about them.

So these are some series that I need to get to and are sitting on my tbr pile. I’m super excited for all of them and one of my bookish resolutions is to finish series that I’ve started. 🤗🤗

🏷 Twenty One Pilots Book Tag 🏷

I am trash for Twenty One Pilots, and for books. This is literally me getting the best of both worlds. I was strolling through YouTube for tag videos, when I found this here, and I automatically knew that I had to do it.

the cruel prince1.Stressed Out – What is a popular book that you have wanted to read for a long time that everyone has been talking about?

For this I’m going with The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. It hasn’t been out that long, but I cannot watch a single video without someone mentioning the book at some point or another. I bought the book, it’s beautiful, I completely gave in to the hype, and I do want to read it, but I’m terrified.

2.Car Radio – Name a book that contained issues you felt you connected to on a personal level. 

I’m going with Fangirl for this. I can personally identify myself with Cath from Fangirl much easier than I can with a lot of other characters. She has trouble communicating with people, she obviously has problems with change, so I can very easily connect to that.

3.Ride – Name a book that you wanted to never end.

Isla and the Happily Ever After. I am complete trash for that series, I reread it at least every year, especially Anna and the French Kiss, and it’s just so perfect and cute, I never wanted it to end. I love that trilogy a crap ton.

4.Holding on to You – What is a book/series that you have loved since your childhood?

I didn’t do a lot of reading in my childhood. I had the Little Miss series, which I did love to shreds, but I can’t picture myself now, a 17 year old, reading those little booklets. I did start reading the Percy Jackson series when I was 14 though, and I still love it so much, I’m really glad that Rick Riordan decided to write the Trials of Apollo series.

5.Tear in my Heart – Name a book that made you feel all the emotions.

A lot of books are Emotional Roadshows Rollercoasters for me, but Eleanor & Park was a super crazy rollercoaster. You’re happy, next thing you know you finished the book a couple of hours later and you’re crying in your bed, swearing about how unfair the world is. This book has ups and downs, it’s worth the read.

img_26306.Fairly Local – What is your personal favorite underground book/series?

I don’t exactly know what the creator means with underground, maybe like underhyped, not as well known. And if she means that, then I’m going with Holly Bournes books. I never see anyone talking about them. I have yet to see a BookTuber talk about them or even mention them in a haul. I truly think that Holly Bournes books are amazing, and no one knows, because they don’t know about them. Plus, for my German readers, which I know I have nearly none of, I love the Pan series. I need it to be translated into English so that everyone can read it. The Pan series is one of my most favorite series of all time, and no one knows.

7.Ode to Sleep – Name a book that was full of twists and turns and kept you on the edge of your seat.

Without a doubt One of Us is Lying. This book kept having new information and new points and the whole mystery aspect to it was amazingly well done. I found the reveal to be completely unexpected, and I was never bored while reading the book.

8.Goner – What is a book character that you fell in love with from the beginning?

Carswell Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles. The OTP’s in this series are some of my most favorite of all time and I automatically loved Carswell Thorne. He’s so funny, and I loved it when the books switched to his point of view, damn, this just makes me want to reread the books.

9.Migraine – What is one book that gave you a headache to read?

The Girl on the Train. I wish I had written a review back then, because I hated reading that book so much. I really just had nothing better to do, since it was summer vacation and a lot of people were talking about it, so I decided to just do it. Book sucks. It’s super repetitive, I did not care for the main character, I think her name was Rachel? I was so relieved when I finished, that was such a crap book.

99 days10. We Don’t Believe What’s On TV – What is a book that you love that most people seem to hate?

I don’t absolutely love this novel, but I definitely enjoyed it more than others did. The average rating on Goodreads for 99 Days is 3.39, which is really low. When I read it a couple years back, I really enjoyed it. I was super trash for it. I love kind of trashy ya novels that are filled to the brim with drama, I think it’s hilarious. I mean, in my review I was like ‘Where’s the second part when you need it’, which I cannot even remember writing and this was before the second part was announced, so I guess dreams do come true.

This was my take on the Twenty One Pilots book tag. I had a lot of fun doing this tag, and I hope you all give it a go aswell.

The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven

the exact opposite of okayTitle: The Exact Opposite of Okay

Author: Laura Steven

Genre: YA, Contemporary

Publisher: Electric Monkey

Release Date: March 8th, 2018

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Goodreads Summary: Izzy O’Neill is an aspiring comic, an impoverished orphan, and a Slut Extraordinaire. Or at least, that’s what the malicious website flying round the school says. Izzy can try all she wants to laugh it off – after all, her sex life, her terms – but when pictures emerge of her doing the dirty with a politician’s son, her life suddenly becomes the centre of a national scandal. Izzy’s never been ashamed of herself before, and she’s not going to start now. But keeping her head up will take everything she has…

A phenomenal book, but for me personally it fell kinda flat. I loved so much about this book obviously. I loved our protagonist Izzy O’Neill, she’s so original. I don’t know, I feel like, even though I say it a lot and it’s true that every character is different, they kind of all fall into the same mold and turn into this glob, because they’re all so similar. But not for Izzy O’Neill. Okay, she’s a genuinely poor girl, and this isn’t like the start of the story and then it gets better, it never does. They have to work super hard for their money and a lot of contemporary main characters aren’t super rich, but they do have it relatively easy, and I loved seeing a main character who had it a bit harder. Like, some novels might include a poor best friend, but hardly ever a poor main character.

I also love Izzy O’Neill because of how she dealt with the whole scandal that she was thrust into. She always tried her best to just laugh it off like she does everything else and she was always super chill about it. I mean, I obviously get it that if something like that would happen you feel like it’s the end of the world, but it was really cool to see her handling the situation so differently.

Not only Izzy is a great character, her best friend, Ajita, is always an incredible gal. She’s always there to back up her friend, she always supports her. I loved how Ajita was always a permanent figure in her life, and never abonded Izzy.

Now, the book fell kind of flat for me, because I kind of expected more from the whole feminist aspect. Because in the summary of the book it says ‘Izzy is about to find out that the way the world treats girls is the exact opposite of okay,’ or something clever like that including the title, but she didn’t really realize that too much until the end of the book. I don’t know, I personally expected a bit more.

I still think that without a doubt this is a great novel and I would definitely recommend it. It really opens your eyes, especially since this is how girls are actually treated, and it’s insanely stupid. I thought the characters were great, and I loved a lot, but it kind of fell flat for me. 🤗🤗

Anticipated Spring Releases 2018

There are 2 ways of counting the seasons, by month or by date. I personally count it by month, but I decided to mix it up a bit, and since Spring ‘officially’ started 3 days ago, I wanted to talk about my anticipated releases for the Spring. Books that I’m anticipating for June I will talk about in my Anticipated Summer Releases 2018 post, which I will publish in June.

Picture Us in the Light by Kelly Loy Gilbertpicture us in the light

Release Date: April 10th, 2018

Goodreads Summary: Danny Cheng has always known his parents have secrets. But when he discovers a taped-up box in his father’s closet filled with old letters and a file on a powerful Silicon Valley family, he realizes there’s much more to his family’s past than he ever imagined.

Danny has been an artist for as long as he can remember and it seems his path is set, with a scholarship to RISD and his family’s blessing to pursue the career he’s always dreamed of. Still, contemplating a future without his best friend, Harry Wong, by his side makes Danny feel a panic he can barely put into words. Harry and Danny’s lives are deeply intertwined and as they approach the one-year anniversary of a tragedy that shook their friend group to its core, Danny can’t stop asking himself if Harry is truly in love with his girlfriend, Regina Chan.

When Danny digs deeper into his parents’ past, he uncovers a secret that disturbs the foundations of his family history and the carefully constructed facade his parents have maintained begins to crumble. With everything he loves in danger of being stripped away, Danny must face the ghosts of the past in order to build a future that belongs to him.

leah on the offbeatLeah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

Release Date: April 24th, 2018

Goodreads Summary: Leah Burke—girl-band drummer, master of deadpan, and Simon Spier’s best friend from the award-winning Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—takes center stage in this novel of first love and senior-year angst.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.

To say that I’m excited for this book is an understatement. I am living for this release. I can’t wait for more, especially since I reread Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda recently and completely loved it.

Good things come in threes they say, and this specifically applies to these 3 releases that are coming out on May 1st.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maasacofas

Release Date: May 1st, 2018

Goodreads Summary (A Court of Thorns and Roses): Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

I am so excited for this novel, I can’t wait to be back in this world with some of my favorite characters and I can’t wait to see where the series is going from there on out.

the burning mazeThe Burning Maze by Rick Riordan

Release Date: May 1st, 2018

Goodreads Summary (The Hidden Oracle): How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour.

But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go… an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

I already preordered it. I hope I get the exclusive edition that’s signed by the king Rick Riordan himself, I love this universe and I can’t wait to see a certain character again that we haven’t seen in a while.

9 Days and 9 Nights by Katie Cotugno9 days and 9 nights

Release Date: May 1st, 2018

Goodreads Summary (99 Days): Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

It’s been over 2 years since I’ve read 99 days, the first book in this apparent series which I was not expecting, but I am super excited for it, because I did enjoy 99 days much more than Fireworks.

love & luckLove & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch

Release Date: May 8th, 2018

Goodreads Summary: Addie is visiting Ireland for her aunt’s over-the-top destination wedding, and hoping she can stop thinking about the one horrible thing she did that left her miserable and heartbroken—and threatens her future. But her brother, Ian, isn’t about to let her forget, and his constant needling leads to arguments and even a fistfight between the two once inseparable siblings. Miserable, Addie can’t wait to visit her friend in Italy and leave her brother—and her problems—behind.

So when Addie discovers an unusual guidebook, Ireland for the Heartbroken, hidden in the dusty shelves of the hotel library, she’s able to finally escape her anxious mind and Ian’s criticism.

And then their travel plans change. Suddenly Addie finds herself on a whirlwind tour of the Emerald Isle, trapped in the world’s smallest vehicle with Ian and his admittedly cute, Irish-accented friend Rowan. As the trio journeys over breathtaking green hills, past countless castles, and through a number of fairy-tale forests, Addie hopes her guidebook will heal not only her broken heart, but also her shattered relationship with her brother.

That is if they don’t get completely lost along the way.

I loved Love & Gelato, her debut novel, and I’m getting those vibes from this book and it sounds great, I cannot wait to pick this up.

from twinkle, with loveFrom Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon

Release Date: May 22nd, 2018

Goodreads Summary: Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.

When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.

Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?

Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.

Yes, I am also super super excited for this book, I can’t! It has anonymous emailing in it (the non creepy kind) AND I LIVE FOR THAT SORT OF STUFF. Ever since Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and Tell Me Three Things, I love emailing, and I am so excited for this book, especially since I really loved her debut novel, When Dimple Met Rishi.

listen to your heart kasie westListen to Your Heart by Kasie West

Release Date: May 29th, 2018

Goodreads Summary: Talking to other people isn’t Kate Bailey’s favorite activity. She’d much rather be out on the lake, soaking up the solitude and sunshine. So when her best friend, Alana, convinces Kate to join their high school’s podcast, Kate is not expecting to be chosen as the host. Now she’ll have to answer calls and give advice on the air? Impossible.

But to Kate’s surprise, she turns out to be pretty good at the hosting gig. Then the podcast gets in a call from an anonymous guy, asking for advice about his unnamed crush. Kate is pretty sure that the caller is gorgeous Diego Martinez, and even surer that the girl in question is Alana. Kate is excited for her friend … until Kate herself starts to develop feelings for Diego. Suddenly, Kate finds that while doling out wisdom to others may be easy, asking for help is tougher than it looks, and following your own advice is even harder.

Kasie West’s adorable story of secrets, love, and friendship is sure to win over hearts everywhere.

I love Kasie Wests’ books, and her writing gets better with every book, plus I already preordered this in January, so I’ve been waiting for this for a pretty long time and I’m gonna have to keep waiting. Plus, she’s constantly bringing out new books, which I live for.

These are all the books that I’m anticipating for Spring. I have no idea what I’m going to do for all the May releases because that’s exam seasons, and I’m bad in school, but nonetheless I am super excited and I can’t wait for all of these books! 🤗🤗

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

simon vs the homo sapiens agenda cover

Title: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Author: Becky Albertalli

Genre: YA, Contemporary, LGBT

Publisher: Penguin

Release Date: April 7th, 2015

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Goodreads Summary: Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.

I’m so happy that I got to reread this book! I read in legit 3 days, which isn’t surprising since it’s only 300 pages long, but it just took me 3 weeks to read the second part in The Raven Cycle, so I’m gonna applaud myself.

I forgot generally everything about this novel, I even forgot who Blue was, like who he ended up being. And I was amazingly surprised.

This book is the definition of a feel good, fluffy contemporary novel. It’s such a hilarious book. I found myself laughing out loud so many times, it came to the point where I laughed so loud that my dad had to ask me from the other room if I was okay. I guess he’s not used to me laughing.

This book also has a huge diverse cast, and I don’t even know why I’m surprised by this. I mean the Upside of Unrequited has a super diverse cast, I just completely forgot that the cast was also this diverse in this book. Plus, it has the most relateable characters. Simon is legit me, apart from the gay thing. He’s super obsessed with Harry Potter and Oreos, and I am aswell. He finds everything about himself and being a teenager awkward and I do too. I can’t wait to get out of this awkward hellhole.

This book had so many things that I enjoy about books in it, I mean it had them emailing, which I lived for. The romance is super fluffy and the best part was that the other characters also acted like teenagers. There was unnecessary drama, people overreacting, awkwardness, it was one of the best teenage representation that I’ve read in a while.

But now there were some things that bothered me, but mostly only at the beginning. The book is kind of forgettable and uneventful. I know, that’s harsh to say but before rereading this I forgot everything, I couldn’t even guess what would happen next, and when I reread Fangirl last September, a book that I read for the first time around the same time that I read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, I remembered a lot of the things that happened, and atleast what the friends’ names were. Plus the writing is a bit simplistic, but Simon is also Becky Albertallis first book, so I can’t be too harsh about that, plus it improved throughout the book.

I love this book so much because it’s everything that I love in books. Books rock. Please read it, especially since the movie is coming out soon. (If it isn’t out at the point that I’m posting this review) 🤗🤗

Top Ten Most Owned Authors

Hey everybody! Today, I wanted to tell you about my top ten most owned authors. This was a very popular video to make about 4 years ago, but I’m doing my take on it now. A lot of the booktubers who talked about their top ten most owned authors also said that the authors were their auto buy authors, but not all of these authors are auto buy authors for me, and I want to make a blog post about which authors are auto buy authors.

Cassandra Clare

I own every single book by Cassandra Clare. I own the entire mortal instruments series, the entire infernal devices trilogy, the two books that are currently out in the dark artifices trilogy, the three infernal devices mangas, and every single shadowhunter academy novella. I have an entire shelf dedicated to her books, I’ve gone out of my way to order special editions, and yet I haven’t read the dark artifices, although I will during my Easter break. I have a lot of Latin learning to do, but if I read two shorter-ish books that are also contemporary I have a lot of time in reserve to read Lady Midnight.

Morgan Matson

I own all of her books. She is one of my favorite authors, I love Morgan Matsons works. I’ve also read all of her books. I’ve preordered Save the Date and it’s one of my most anticipated books of the year, it’s been so long since I’ve read a book by her. I can’t wait for another summer time romance!

John Green

Surprise surprise, I own all of John Green books. I’ve read nearly every single book he’s brought out. He is an auto-buy author. I’ve also owned the John Green collection the longest out of all of my other books.

Rainbow Rowell

Ah, yes of course I own all of Rainbow Rowell books. She’s one of my favorite authors and I would have already read Attachments already, but she really doesn’t have any other books on the horizon, and I don’t want to already have read all of her books.

 Sarah J. Maas

I own almost every single book by Sarah J. Maas. I own all of the books that are currently out in both the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and the Throne of Glass series, but I am missing The Assassins Blade. I’m thinking about reading it over the summer, but I do own the ACOTAR coloring book, which my bestie got me for Christmas.

Marissa Meyer

Oh the author of one of my favorite series. The Lunar Chronicles got me out of the great reading slump of the first semester of sophomore year. I own all of her books except for Heartless. I do want to get it, but it’s always so expensive, so I’ll just have to wait a little bit longer and I’ll be fine.

Rick Riordan

I’ve read every book he’s brought out except for the Kane chronicles. And although I don’t own the percy jackson series, yet, I own the entire Heroes of Olympus series, the first two parts that are currently out in the Trials of Apollo series and the first book in the Magnus Chase series, which is signed. I’ve already preordered the next part in the Trials of Apollo series and I’m super excited to continue it in May.

J.K. Rowling

I may only own the Harry Potter series by her, but the Harry Potter series is a very long one you know. That’s 7 books. Then I own two other first editions of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, I own Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (I do not count that to the Harry Potter series, I highly doubt JK even had anything to do with that book), I own all of the illustrated editions that are out to date, I own the entire Hogwarts Library, I have the Newt Scamander Case and A History of Magic. I also have a German translation of Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. I’m crazy, I know.

Tahereh Mafi

I own the entire Shatter Me trilogy, but I don’t have restore me yet, and I also haven’t even read the Shatter Me trilogy yet. I also own Furthermore, which was one of my favorite books that I read last year, and I still have yet to get my hands on Whichwood, but I am super excited to read more from the Furthermore universe because Furthermore is one of my favorite middle grade books.

Jennifer E. Smith

This one is a bit of stretch, because I was a huge fan of her books ages ago, and I don’t even own that many by her, but I needed ten authors. I’ve owned my copies of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between for so long, the pages have started yellowing. I can’t believe that I’ve owned books long enough that the pages started to yellow! The same thing is happening with my copy of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and I’m not ready for it. My books are getting old and so am I.

Just to put this into perspective, I own 189 books, but 80 of those books alone come from this list. 🤗🤗

The Guilty Reader Book Tag

Hey everybody! It’s Tag Tuesday and I am back today with The Guilty Reader book tag which I found over here.

Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?

Technically. It’s not like someone really gifted me the book, my dad bought it for me. Not as a present, we were just at the book store and he paid for it. Then, I got my hands on the exclusive collectors edition of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and I couldn’t pass that up. As if. But I didn’t have the space for two copies of Fangirl, so I gifted my normal copy to a friend. But I’ve never regifted a book that someone got me as a present.

Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?

Yes. Constantly. Every time we have to read a book for school, specifically German class, I lie my ass off. I don’t care much for German and I certainly don’t care for the assigned reading. So, every time I have to read a book for German, I pull up my handy dandy phone and read a summary an hour before my class.

Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?

No. Every time I borrow books I always return them. I don’t even have them sitting around my place for too long, I can always ask for them again, so I always give them back.

Have you ever read a series out of order?

No. I have a couple of friends who have accidentally read a series out of order, but I personally have never. Although, maybe I read the Little Miss books out of order, which could very easily be, but otherwise I never have.

Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?

Okay, before I answer, you need to know the backstory. Me and my best friend are totally against spoilers, they are legit the worst things out there, but my other friends don’t care that much about spoilers. I always ask first if I can spoil something for them, and they usually say yes because either they don’t have any intentions on reading the book, or they generally don’t care about spoilers. Not me. Anyway, we were at the coffee shop once, and we were talking about the Mortal Instruments because at that time we were all reading the books. All of us. And then one of my friends spoiled my best friend for something dramatic that happens in the Mortal Instruments, and it was a huge spoiler, so I lashed out and spoiled her for Clockwork Princess. That was the one time that I spoiled someone for an event in the book before asking them if I could spoil them and where it really mattered.

Have you ever doggy eared a book?

This might sound horrible because it wasn’t even my own book. I am super against doggy earing books, but I borrowed the Percy Jackson series from my friend to read it, and she had these very tattered up copies because she’s had them since her childhood, and she also doggy eared the books, so I did too. This was before I was super into reading with bookmarks and everything, but I still feel terrible.

Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?

I’ve never said I don’t own the book when they want to borrow it  or want to generally read it, but I also don’t always tell my friends when I order a book or purchase a new one, because I have a serious problem. I don’t always want to hear ‘the speech’ when I order a book that I am super looking forward to, so sometimes I just don’t tell them.

Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?

No, I’m very open about the books that I read. I’ve never felt ashamed of any of them, so I can’t relate.

Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?

I don’t skip chapters, or sections. It’s way too confusing, I don’t like doing that. I never do that. But, if I’m not enjoying a book, or at least that portion of the book, I will resort to skimming to pick up the pace of things.

Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?

No. I can always point out the flaws in a book, because no book is perfect, but I’ve never bad mouthed a book when I actually genuinely liked it.

So, this was my take on the guilty reader book tag. Amazingly, I’m not that guilty of a reader, sure I am a little bit, but who isn’t? I really enjoyed doing this tag and even though everyone did it a year ago, I invite y’all to do it aswell if you haven’t yet. 🤗🤗
