So … a day or so ago while I was
productively procrastinating from studying, I went on a wild 3 am search for some new The Raven Cycle fanart (I was desperate), and I encountered Anna @ Annaish who did a Raven Cycle book tag – AND I KNEW THAT I HAVE TO DO IT ASAP (and alas, I finally got the time to write this by procrastinating even more). Here we go:
- In the books, Maura is the relaxed mom that is Blue’s friend more than an actual mother. Who is your favourite mom character?
Mrs Weasley From Harry Potter!!! She’s the kindest, most caring and loving mother, and she is a hella brave too (recall all the duel scenes)! She’s different from Maura who is more chill, but Mrs Weasley also has her quirk too and will fight you if you *sobs* hurt her family.
- Adam wanted to go to Aglionby so he could one day escape where he came from. Have you ever dreamt of living somewhere else? Where?
I surely have! I’d dreamt of living in England, not necessarily London
but that would be nice actually, but just anywhere in the UK would be epic. Scotland would be nice too, no way I would complain about that.
- In the second book we meet the Gray Man. He is a hit man who loves poetry. Name a book that you thought was going to be one thing but turned out to be something else.
For me it was November 9 by Colleen Hoover. It was my first ever CoHo book, and OH MY GOSH, I did not expect it to be ONE HECK OF A RIDE?
I read it on a family trip bad choice. My heart self-combusted after that book. Both good and bad ways such strong emotions are occasionally bad for the heart I’m telling you.

Hey guys! It’s time for another book tag! I’ve been at an awful slump for the past few weeks – but don’t worry – I’ve started Nevernight and I hope that will bring me out of it! In the mean time, I’m gonna have a crack at The Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag!
This tag was created by Book Syrup on Youtube, and you can find the original video here!
1. Best color combo on a book cover
Not gonna lie, I ain’t the biggest fan on pink/purplish colours, but the Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray totally SLAYED it with the watercolour artwork!!! All three covers look stunning with elements of different cities and gorgeous landscapes (they are crucial elements of the actual books too!).
2. Best typography/font on a book cover
I love the font of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo! This book and its sequel Crooked Kingdom are both fantastic fantasy books and I highly recommend them!
3. Best simple cover
I actually had to think a little while for this one, because I actually don’t own many books with simple covers! So I’ll go with Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell!. I love that mint colour with the pink lettering!

Saw this awesome tag on Mae’s blog – I decided to give it a go because it seems so much fun! I tag all of you that wants to do this tag! Let’s go!
1. BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017
Oooh, this is a hard one! I’ll go with Brigid Kemmerer’s Letters to the Lost!!!! I’ve been talking non-stop to all my bookish and non-bookish friends and oh my – I highly recommend it to y’all! My spoiler-free review can be viewed on here.
2. YOUR FAVOURITE SEQUEL OF 2017
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. I mean the book gave me so many feels and actual heartache. I would have written a review but nah I couldn’t do it because it’ll just be me banging the keyboard incoherently with the caps lock on (the whole time).
3. A NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ BUT WANT TO
Wintersong, probably. People won’t stop talking about it – so I’ll have to read it and see for myself hehe!

I’m back! I finally finished all my exams (and I am praying that I did alright because I SIMPLY WANNA PASS). Anyways, putting the boring stuff aside, I’m going to do this AWSEOME tag which I found on theBookishLouge (the tag was originally made on a booktube which can be found on here)
Let’s get on with it!
1. E-book or Physical Book?
Physical book all the way. I want to be able to pat the book and to physically feel and smell it. I love the smell of books, yeah I’m weird. And I mean you can put it on the shelf and stare at it lovingly, how good is that?
2. Paperback or Hardback?
As much as I love hardbacks, my bank balance won’t allow it – so I am very happy with my floppy paperbacks. It’s light to carry and easy on the hand when reading in public.
3. Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
Online book shopping. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t like a better deal? (In my case, I NEED a better deal otherwise I can’t afford it). I also love going into bookstores to check out different versions before making a purchase online. (Trust me, I do want to buy books from local bookstore – support local business and stuff – but I need that money for my next lunch I am sorry.)

I had so much fun doing my first book tag, so I did another one hehe! I found the Beauty and the Beast Book Tag on Du Vire, and I thought oooh why not? Here we go!
“Oh what a guy, Gaston!”
1. A villain you can’t help but love.
Forever and always – the Darkling from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. *swoon*
This is my version of the Darkling.
“Here’s where she meets Prince Charming”
2. Your OTP.
I have so many OTPs omg. But for the purpose of this tag, I’ll choose … Blue and Gansey from The Raven Cycle (gosh I love these guys). I love Pynch as well. You should know by now that I’m trashed for this series. So, not so much of a surprise here. How cute do they look in these fan art? Oh my gosh. ❤

I was tagged by Bekka from Pretty Deadly Reviews to do the Harry Potter Spell Book Tag! This is my first time doing on so I’m quite excited! (*squeal* because it’s Harry Potter theme!) Anyway, this tag was originally created by Kimberly Faye Reads. Let’s get to it.
1. Accio – the summoning charm. An upcoming release you cannot wait to get your hands on.
Oooh, this is a hard one! (Let’s be honest here) For the purpose of this tag I’ll go with Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab! I am so excited for it! If you haven’t read book 1 of the series This Savage Song, you’re surely missing out!
2. Alohamora – the unlocking charm. Favorite series starter.
Hands down The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater! I’m total trash for the Raven Cycle so no surprises there. Here are my 10 Reasons you should read The Raven Boys.
3. Cheering Charm. A book that gave you all the warm fuzzies.
I gotta give this one to Kasie West’s P.S. I Like You. It’s super cute and moving as well. I relate to the character a lot so it’s a winner for me!
