I first saw this tag on The Orangutan Librarian and couldn’t resist doing it myself. I know Taylor Swift isn’t for everyone, but I’ve been enjoying listening to her Folklore album and what better way to spotlight it than in this tag? Thanks to Ilsa for creating the original tag.

The cliffhanger at the end of this book truly left me speechless in a good, WTF way. If you like twists and turns and being pushed out of comfort zone, Nine Minutes is a great trilogy. Warning: You will both hate and love it at the same time.
If you have read Bright Side, you will know what I mean. If you haven’t, you really need to read it. It’s beautiful. When someone asks my favorite book, I always say this one even though we all know we don’t truly have favorites.
It feels strange putting a book set in Cuba with The Last Great American Dynasty prompt, but it was the first book that came to mind. The way Next Year in Havana was written was so brilliant. My attention was captured by the story from the moment I picked it up.
Forbidden gets a lot of love because it is very well written, but it was hard for me to digest and still makes me sick every time I think about it.
P.S. This is my favorite track on the album, so I’m kind of sad it’s a negative prompt. But I get it since it’s a sad song.
And we’re back to Bright Side. I cried for the last 1/3 of this book. It was worth it, though.
This was a hard prompt! Any time a favorite authors adds to a series or releases a new book it feels like it’s written just for me. LOL I was looking back through the books I’ve read this year and saw #IMOMSOHARD. I decided to go with it because man, it’s so easy to relate to what these women talk about as a mother and women.
Oh, boy. I think this is supposed to be a sweet and innocent book, but my pick is so twisted! *hides face* I picked Remember Me because it was my favorite book in that junior high, maybe even high school era. My best friend and I were really into reading Christopher Pike, L.J. Smith, and R.L. Stine books. I can remember us going to Walden Books in the mall and scanning the shelves for new releases.
The name Sarah Dessen is synonymous with summer, so I picked her latest release.
I was going to pick Fallen Crest High because this prompt was making me think of Sam, but then I decided I HAD to choose Ryan’s Bed. The grief and loneliness Mackenzie was feeling and the whole vibe of the book fits to a “T”.
There was just a lot to think about when I finished The Reckless Oath We Made. It was brilliantly written and kind of messed up. I wanted to love it, but wasn’t sure I should. Does that make sense?
This is a deep prompt, but my answer is the opposite. The Match came into my life when Kayla recommended it as a buddy read for us. I needed/wanted something happy, uplifting, and funny in my reading life. The Match hit all three of those.
I almost went with Kate from Bright Side, but decided I should spotlight some other books. Annie Mathers from You’d Be Mine might just be my favorite female character I’ve read this year.
The Sun Down Motel is perfect because there is actual haunting in it!
A book couple that fills me with yearning? I had a hard time with this one. I felt like it meant a couple that left me yearning for more in my own life, and that’s not a thing for me. So I’m going with a book couple that does a lot of yearning for each other, and I always want more books about this couple because I love them together: Mason and Sam.
I’m not willing to die for a book character. That’s just crazy talk. What I will say is that Kate is a character that represents internal peace to me.
The Map from Here to There is the sequel of The Start of Me and You. I’m kind of wishing there hadn’t been a sequel. It wasn’t like the most horrible thing I’ve read or anything, but it just didn’t work for me and kind of ruined my feeling from that first book.
And those are my answers to The Folklore Book Tag. I’m not tagging specific bloggers, but if you want to do this tag go for it! I would love to read your answers. 🙂
