Love You Like A Love Song: A romance novel that is cliché but you still love it

The Fill-In Boyfriend

This was the first Kasie West book I read and I loved it so much! It has fake dating which is a trope I adore and it is cliché but that’s what makes it so good! I haven’t read it in so long so I think it’s due a reread soon.

Rare: A book with a female protagonist unlike any other

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)

This series!!! SO good, I think Mara Dyer is unique because technically Mara Dyer doesn’t exist and it’s a fake name. I can’t say too much about this series as they would be major spoilers but it is so addictive and you are left unsure of whether she is telling the truth.

Look at her now: A character who suffered a lot (physically/mentally) but eventually recovered and is now at the better end of life

Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)

Aelin, my fave! She suffered so much, first at the hands of Arobynn and then as a prisoner and then everything else that happens! But the ending of this was *chef’s kiss*.

Wolves: A book that got you out of a reading slump

The Shadows Between Us

I was in such a reading slump in November and this beauty got me out of it. I loved it so much and wanted to reread it as soon as I’d finished it!

It ain’t me: A character you used to like but not anymore

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)

I liked Chaol from the beginning, not as much as Dorian I might add, but I did like him. Then after this book his existence annoyed me. This prompt says ‘don’t like anymore’ so I’ve technically not answered this correctly as after Tower of Dawn, he did redeem himself!

Feel Me: A character you can’t bear to see with anyone else but you

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

Dorian. I love you. I also love Manon but I want Dorian for myself please.

Same Old Love: A book with an unoriginal and unrealistic romance

The Outlands

There’s a tiny bit of romance in this book and it just felt a bit forced. And it was like guy struggles to speak to girl and has barely ever spoken to girl but then as soon as they talk once, they are in love. I just wasn’t feeling the romance element of this as it felt a bit underdeveloped.

The heart wants what it wants: A book you regret finishing because you miss reading it a lot

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)

It was over way too soon and I’ve wanted to reread it since but still haven’t gotten around to it! One day I will!

Back to you: A book you read again and again even though you have other books on your TBR pile

Alex, Approximately

I haven’t read this for a while, but it tends to be this genre that I come back to. I can easily speed through a reread of YA romance and this is one of my absolute favourites.

Hit the Lights: A book that just made you forget everything else

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire (Blood and Ash, #2)

I could not put it down. I was reading it between writing an essay and revising for an exam and all I wanted to do was read it! I was hooked.

Tell me something I don’t know: A book people keep recommending you which you already have it in your TBR pile

Cast in Firelight (Wickery, #1)

I have had this recommended to me a few times and I’ve wanted to read it since I read the synopsis! It sounds insanely good!

I can’t get enough: A book series/world you just want more and more of

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1)

Although, How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories has just been released, I am already desperate for more! I love Elfhame and Jude and Cardan and I just need more!

I tag:

Pilar @ The Bookworm Shelf

Shruti @ Damsel in the Bookland

    1. It was a great tag! I loved the prompts! Yes, you have to push through, in my opinion, it gets so much better after Heir of Fire! Kasie West writes such good books! I don’t think I’ve read that one yet, but I have a massive collection on my bookshelf!

  2. Great answers, Georgia! I loved reading all of them, even though it seem we pretty much have complete opposite opinions regarding the entire Throne of Glass series 😂😂 I will take Chaol over Dorian any day, and I thought Kingdom of Ash was extremely disappointing 😅 I’m really glad you liked it, though! And I also read Crescent City at the beginning of this month, so I know exactly what you mean! Even though parts of it were kind of ridiculous, I had so much fun with it! And I loved The Fill-In Boyfriend, too 😁

  3. I love Selena and ToG. Especially Dorian!!! I used to not like Chaol. In the beginning, he was so dry. Then he CoM happened, but he did pick up in HoF. That’s when I began to like him as a person. But then QoS happened, but I remember he’s human so I don’t hate him. Right now he’s actually my 3rd favorite. I still haven’t read EoS or ToD though.

    And omg, I really do need to read The Cruel Prince. My younger brother actually recently bought the book (which surprised me because he does not read for fun!). He said he thought the cover was cool so I will probably get to it soon. Finally going to buddy-read with my brother haha.

  4. You and I definitely have similar tastes between Maas, Armentrout and Black!! I had some people ask me about the length of House of Earth and Blood, and I just laughed! I told them it felt like I read a quick 200 page book and I just wanted more and more!!
