The Taylor Swift Book Tag!

Created by The Book Life, the Taylor Swift Book Tag is a fun way to pair book titles to famous Taylor Swift songs through a handful of questions. Jessica from Lovin’ los libros tagged me! I have such a love-hate relationship with Taylor Swift (as in I love her music but hate to admit it) that it’s kinda funny I’m doing this at all, but it seemed like fun so what the heck. 🙂

I don’t think I need to say much more than “THIS BOOK.” and most everyone will understand why I feel as I do about it. As I’m an emotional reader, it is one of THE WORST BOOKS I’ve ever read. It’s the worst series ender in the history of the world, IMHO. This book here? Damn near single-handedly ruined me for all YA sci fi series ever. Sound a bit overly-dramatic? I don’t care. It ruined me. I still get pissed when I think about it. So I’m gonna stop and move on. 🙂

Not only is this cover red, it’s red hot. And so is the story inside. I can’t play favorites with Tessa’s men because I love them all, but Matt… oh, Matt. LOVE.

TSBT_3

Not only did I love everything about this book and the entire series, but all the 90s references just made me smile. Since I, too, was a teen in the 90s, it was easy to put myself in Layla’s place and live the entire story right along with her. <3

No one writes forbidden, complicated love quite like Karina Halle. Vera and Mateo will always be near the top of my list of favorite couples. Their story isn’t for everyone (cheating and all that) but I loved it.

TSBT_5

Oh, Warner. You come off like such an asshole, but I loved you from the very start. I knew there was more to you than met the eye. You showed your true colors, and made me fall head over heels for you, in the last book in the series.

TSBT_6

I learned a valuable lesson when I started reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince… NEVER READ THE CHAPTER TITLES AHEAD OF TIME. Ever. Unless you want to spoil the book for yourself. I’ll never forget the moment I first saw the words “The Phoenix Lament” at the beginning of that book. I knew right away what it meant and I wanted to kick myself for finding out that way.

I loved Celeste when I read Flat-Out Love so I was obviously excited for her to get a book of her own. She grew a lot in Flat-Out Love, but that was nothing compared to what this book brought. Sure, she still has her quirks, but she was more charming and a lot stronger in this one. It gave me all the warm fuzzies!

TSBT_8

This book just can’t get here soon enough. The only thing keeping me from going totally crazy is that I’m rereading the already released books in the series. I need more!

TSBT_9

It was no small feat to pick just ONE favorite book couple. I have so many. I could’ve easily picked so many couples. But I decided to go with a couple from one of my all-time favorite YA books because I think about them so very often. I love these two so damn much.

TSBT_10

This one doesn’t really apply to me because I DO NOT lend out my books. But, if I did, I’ll Meet You There would be at the top of my list of books I’d be afraid to lend. I just love looking at it too much. And, sometimes, picking it up and reading random parts of it again.

TSBT_11

I don’t know that Ugly Love is the most emotional of Colleen’s books, but I do know it’s one that hit a bit close to home at times. There are tear stains in my paperback copy.

TSBT_12

Ok, LOVE might be a strong word for my feelings about this book and series, but damn it… I enjoyed this book a lot. Did the writing suck? Yes. Were the characters a bit flat? Sure. But, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t completely obsessed with it while I was reading it. I read the entire trilogy in the matter of a couple days and I was up late reading because I couldn’t bear the thought of stopping. Is it my favorite series of all time? Not even close. But you know what? I enjoyed it and, if nothing else, it opened up my reading horizons and led me to find a whole new genre of books to enjoy.

TSBT_13

This was a difficult one, but I decided to go with one of my favorite authors, and the very first author I met in person.

TSBT_14

Surprisingly, this was one of the toughest questions for me to answer. I tend to get wrapped up easily in the world and characters when I read, so I have lots of favorite settings. I decided to go with Wicked because I love, love, love New Orleans and one where fae are walking around sounds kind of amazing.

TSBT_15

I love a good fairytale retelling and there are tons of them out there. Scarlet always stands out in my mind as the best of the best.

This was a lot tougher than I thought it would be! Also, now I really want to listen to Taylor Swift music. Haha.

I’m tagging Kaitlan of Between Order and Randomness, Christine of I Heart Big Books, Betsy of Book Drunk Blog and Ethan of One Guy’s Guide to Good Reads. Let’s see yours, y’all. 🙂

  1. Agree with so many of these. I’ve already said before I dislike Allegiant as much as the next reader. I loved the Shatter Me series and was team Warner too! I love the bad boys! And I’m in love with Scarlet too. I enjoy reads your lists like this because they always give me new books to add to my TBR 😉

  2. I learned the hard way never to read the chapter titles in books…when you see that chapter 10 is called Betrayal it does kind of wreck the shock value of what comes at the end of that chapter! Grrr. With that Harry Potter book, I did expect that death-though not the killer! But I hated the fact that JK Rowling chose to tell everyone before the release of books 5 and 6 that someone dies in each one. I don’t want to know these things before I read!!!

    I read Insurgent and felt a little let down by a few parts that dragged though it was a decent read. I never really felt like reading on with the series until recently. I have a friend that has offered to let me borrow them when I want them but I’m DREADING ‘that book’ as I’ve heard grim things about it!

  3. Oh yay! I’m so glad you did this! These tags are really fun, haha. I’ve had my eye on Torrest’s books for awhile now and you just sealed the deal for me! I love 90’s references obviously, so I think it’ll work for me too! I’m really excited for Love, in English, even though now I’m a little nervous. I have a feeling it will emotionally gut me. LOL. I still need to read Wicked, but I’m uber excited to be down in New Orleans!!!
