This is a super fun tag even if you're not a T. Swift fan so let's get started!
1. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
(pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with)
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare - I know, big surprise! It got to the point by book 5 I just couldn't do it anymore. I would even put the book away for awhile and go back but nope couldn't do it. I have City of Heavenly Fire but I didn't even crack it open. I ended up reading what happens online. I know life isn't all rainbows and butterflies but dear god, give a character a break once and awhile. Once things seemed to go good it got worse. I'm fine with books not having a happily-ever-after ending but you can only put characters and your readers through so much. Maybe it's my angst against the hatred of the film (which as we all know I f--king loved!) but yeah, if I could erase a series from my mind it would be The Mortal Instruments.
2. Red (pick a book with a RED cover)
The Pucked Series by Helena Hunting
3. The Best Day (pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic)
Emergency Room by Caroline B. Cooney - I got this book at (the best thing ever) a Scholastic book fair! I actually just put it on my Kindle to read. My friends and I were obsessed with this book!
4. Love Story (pick a book with forbidden love)
My New Step-Dad by Alexa Riley - The girls at Alexa Riley have so many amazing forbidden love stories but this one is my favorite. I'm not the biggest "daddy" fan and I really liked that this book didn't venture into that too much. It was just pure lust and passion about two people who know they shouldn't fall in love. So hot!
5. I Knew You Were Trouble (pick a book with a bad character you couldn’t help but love)
Aro from the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Aro was always up for conversation and hearing all sides but it usually always came at a price. He was so threatened by Carlisle and everything he was able to achieve that he went to any length to take him down.
6. Innocent (pick a book that someone ruined the ending for)
At first I couldn't think of anything but then it hit me ... Allegiant by Veronica Roth.
She completely ruins the ending by having the third book told from both Tris and Four's point-of-view. Like duh, that doesn't give things away!
7. Everything Has Changed (pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development)
I couldn't pick just one but I was able to narrow it down to three.
Tristan Cole from The Air He Breathes, Jonas Faraday from The Club series, and Miles Archer from Ugly Love.
They are all characters who were so profoundly set in their ways but over the course of the book/series go through so much that it changes them. They all keep their core value of who they are at heart though - they just learn to explore that scary-love side of their lives.
8. You Belong With Me (pick your most anticipated book release)
Cleat Chaser by Sloane Howell and Celia Aaron. I have an ARC of this that I'm currently reading and myyyyy ohhh my!!!
Pucked Forever by Helena Hunting - More of Alex and Violet??? Yes, please!
Dirty by Kylie Scott - I saw the cover for that book months ago and it's finally coming out next month.
Promise by Dani Wyatt - That just looks spectacular!
Vikki Raven has been heating up my Kindle a lot lately ... she may or may not be venturing into full romance novels ... verrrryyyy exciting!
And of course anything by Alexa Riley! When I know the girl's are writing something new I basically start to salivate.
9. Forever and Always (pick your favorite book couple)
Christian and Ana from Fifty Shades will always have a special place in my heart since they are my first romance read.
HOWEVER, Jonas and Sarah from The Club series are without a doubt my absolute favorite couple. I adore them!!! I wish they were real ... like legit want to know them in my daily to day life real.
10. Come Back, Be Here (pick the book you would least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much)
Single book wise: The Air He Breathes by Brittainy Cherry, Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover, PS. You're Mine by Alexa Riley.
Series wise: The Club by Lauren Rowe
11. Teardrops On My Guitar (pick a book that made you cry a lot)
Theses are books that causes legit tears down my face ...
The first two books of the Filthy Beautiful Love series by Kendell Ryan ... oh, my god, I didn'te even know the tears started until they hit my tablet. Just wow, so emotional.
The Air He Breathes by Brittainy Cherry .... I can't even, that book.
At some point, each book of The Club Series by Lauren Rowe had me tearing up or tears coming down my face.
12. Shake It Off (pick a book that you love so much, you just shake off the haters)
That's something I do with almost all the books I read! I get all kinds of comments from people when they find out I read mostly romance novels, or that I'm a huge Twilight fan, etc. I couldn't careless what people think about what I read! Reading, no matter what it may be, is something that everyone should do! It's a great way to expand your mind, escape from daily life, and enjoy something you'll probably never do in real life.
