The Book Courtship Tag

Hello beautiful people!

That awkward moment when you were tagged in something in February and you have still yet to work on it…that’s this tag ha-ha! Thank you again The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me in the The Book Courtship Tag. I probably sound like a broken record at this point, but The Orangutan Librarian’s book blog is astounding and easy to “get lost in” with all the fun posts. If you haven’t yet, please go visit the blog.

PHASE ONE. INITIAL ATTRACTION

A BOOK YOU BOUGHT BECAUSE OF THE COVER

35259727

A special edition cover of A.A. Milen’s Winnie-the-Pooh…though I already had a copy at the time…I AM NOT ASHAMED!


PHASE TWO. FIRST IMPRESSIONS

A book you GOT because of its summary

28227374

TECHNICALLY, I was randomly selected on NetGalley to receive this book, but I did have it on my WANT list on NetGalley. The story sounded interesting and new, but I didn’t really end up enjoying it that much…


PHASE THREE. SWEET TALK

A book with great writing

22024583

I can’t get over how beautiful Harper Lee’s novel is; not only is the story captivating, but the language is inspirational and poetic and grandiose.


PHASE FOUR. FIRST DATE

THE FIRST BOOK OF A SERIES THAT MADE YOU WANT TO PICK UP THE REST OF THE SERIES

2800905

To this day, Kelley Armstrong’s Darkest Powers trilogy is one of my favourites; it was the first series I had read in a LONG time that had me so desperate for the sequels that I went and bought them the next day.


PHASE FIVE. LATE NIGHT PHONE CALLS

A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP ALL NIGHT

43509

Basically every book in the Harry Potter series, but The Goblet of Fire was by far my favourite novel. Unfortunately, the film did NOT live up to my expectations…but I can just go back and read the book.


PHASE SIX. ALWAYS ON MY MIND

A BOOK YOU COULD NOT STOP THINKING ABOUT

As many of you know, I became borderline obsessed with this book last year. The FEELS this book gave me were so incredible that I actually re-read the ENTIRE novel the next day…even though I have a mountain of other books to read…woopsie.


PHASE SEVEN. GETTING PHYSICAL

A BOOK THAT YOU LOVE THE WAY IT FEELS

The coloured areas have this velvet material that feels super cool… #sensoryperson


PHASE EIGHT. MEETING THE PARENTS

A BOOK YOU WOULD RECOMMEND TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

I’ve reread this book more times that I can count; it’s one of those stories that makes you REALLY think hard about the choices you make and how your choices can effect others. For myself, Hinton’s story makes me realize how much I have to be thankful for in life rather than always looking at the negatives.


PHASE NINE. THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE

A BOOK OR SERIES YOU KNOW YOU WILL RE-READ MANY TIMES IN THE FUTURE

There’s a lot…so here’s one of them!


PHASE TEN. SHARE THE LOVE

WHO DO YOU TAG?

  1. Oh, this is a cool tag!! I loved reading your answers! And I remember reading The Outsiders in middle school! I’d transferred schools, so I came into the class when they were on chapter three, I think. The teacher was like, “Catch up when you can.” Pfft, I came in a few days later and was on like chapter fifteen. I’ll never forget the look on her face. XD She said, “Don’t read ahead!” I had two chapters left! I couldn’t just stop! Who tells a kid not to read ahead??

    1. Thank you love! And oh my gosh! I did the same! So we were reading that book…and the teacher is like “only read one chapter this weekend” and looks DIRECTLY at me. Monday rolls around, and she’s like “…you read the whole thing, didn’t you?” … to which I stated “If you’re going to give us reading material, it’s gotta be longer than that!”. Seriously, that look is SHORT!
