I saw this hella cool tag at ReadAtMidnight’s blog and well, I am so down for this! And I am such trash for this game you wouldn’t even see me saying no to this.
Just have fun with it! Link back to Antee’s blog if you want. You also may use her graphics.
As a child one of my earliest memories was reading. I had a collection of children’s books I would crack open whenever I felt like it. They were really thin books with really cool artwork inside, and a golden spine. After staring into space for a while and racking up my memory, I finally remembered!
THE LITTLE GOLDEN BOOKS!
They had spines that looked like these
And their back covers looked like these!
I had a lot of these books and I’d crack them open whenever it was playtime. I also vaguely remember having some children’s classics, and a disney book of fairytales.
Well Harry Potter’s definitely up on the list in this category.Though Nancy Drew also brings memories of me supposed to be studying for exams but inside my school textbook was actually a Nancy Drew book.
Probably The Selection series? I stopped after The One and I honestly thought that was the end but she started releasing more novellas and even more books? I was just so done.
The only book I can think of at the moment is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. A bit of The Selection, a bit of The Hunger Games.
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. (Quick apology to my IRL friends who have been bugging me for quite some time now to read this book. But just staring at it already overwhelms me.) For a book series I’d say A Song of Ice and Fire. I tried reading the first book. It seemed so thick and the font was so small I got so intimidated by it, and by how slow I was actually progressing.
There are a lot of books that kept me up past my bedtime cause they were so good. The last book though was A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Honestly there are a lot. But here are some notable ones:
- Jalal and Despina from The Wrath and The Dawn
- Will Herondale and Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices
- Rhysand and Feyre from A Court of Thorns and Roses
- Lysandra and Aedion, Dorian and Manon, Chaol and Celaena (not Aelin lol I’m very specific about this) from the Throne of Glass series
- Sofia and Stanton from The Legal Briefs series
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
Shadowhunters, honestly. I know Cassandra Clare’s coming up with a lot of spin off series for the generations of Shadowhunters and I’m not even mad. I’m so down for it I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING about their lives.
Probably books by Ellen Hopkins. I guess I’ve ignored her books for so long but when I actually got to read them I kept on mentally kicking myself for not reading them sooner cause THEY’RE SO GOOD.
Well there’s the Throne of Glass series, and all the other Shadowhunter spinoffs.
The Glow in the Dark Harry Potter set oh my god. Two of my friends have it and I am highkey jealous I MEAN LOOK AT THESE BEAUTIFUL BABIES
Definitely Caraval by Stephanie Garber!
