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!
