It’s my first blog post in 2017 and before anything else, I would like to say Happy New Year!
I haven’t written anything for the past (almost) two months because I was in a bit of blogging slump but I’m here now! 😀 And as my first post for the year, I decided to do the Seasons of Book Blogging Tag. Thank you Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions for tagging me to do the tag. This one is a good one to look back at the books I read in 2016. So, here we go!
December is a time when friends and families come together and celebrate. Name one book you would give as a gift.
Only the first question and I already struggle with it! There are so many books I would give to my friends. But if I were only allowed to give one, I’d probably choose The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
January begins a new year. Name a resolution you made this year and if you’ve kept it or not.
One of my resolutions in 2016 was to write more. And since I started out my blog and write for the blog, I guess I kept it? 😉
February is the month for relationships. Name your favourite book relationship: romantic, platonic or familial- your choice!
Without a doubt, the Calloway sisters and their boyfriends from the Addicted series. I don’t think I got to see many strong sisterhood and female friendships in NA books so to see the sisters’ relationship through the series was refreshing.
March is the month for luck and new beginnings. Name a book or series that you would like to re-experience as if you’d never read it.
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. It has become one of my favourite fantasy series and I would love to re-experience reading it.
April is a spectacularly ordinary month. Name a book that was so over-hyped that it just could not live up to your expectations.
For me it has to be Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I know many people love the book, but for whatever reason I can’t seem to finish the book. I’m still trying though!
May is the month where flowers start to bloom. Name a book that was a pleasant surprise to you.
Paper Princess by Erin Watt. I decided to read it for a light read and I thought it was going to be another story about the rich kids. But I was surprised to find that there was more in the book. The twist and turn in the book made it a pleasant surprise for me.
June is the time to take a break. Name a book or genre you like to read when you just need to check out.
Fantasy or contemporary! Evidently, these two are the genres I read the most and it all depends on my mood really.
July is the time to celebrate your independence! Name a book that made you see fireworks.
There are a couple books to be honest. From the books I read this year, it has to be Out of Bounds by R.S. Grey.
August is the hottest month of the year. Pick an up-and-coming author that you think will be the next hottest thing.
Honestly, I have no clue. I don’t think I read any debut novel from any author this year. So sorry I can’t answer this one.
September is the time for students to go back to school! Pick a book you read for school that you actually enjoyed.
Back in school, there were no required readings for my English classes. The teacher let us to pick whichever books we wanted to read. I remember reading IQ84 by Haruki Murakami. I was intimidated by the book at first but I actually enjoyed reading it!
October is a time to celebrate halloween! Pick one character that you would love to dress up as for halloween.
Aelin for sure! And as I am currently reading ACOMAF, I also would love to dress up as Mor.
November is the month when we’re reminded of how much we have to be thankful for. Choose one book you’re grateful for having read and give a shout-out to the person who recommended it!
I would like to thank every single book blogger who fangirl over the Throne of Glass series and Court of Thorns and Roses because without all of you, I wouldn’t start reading the series. Both series are definitely my highlights in reading this year. SO THANK YOU!
I’ve seen this tag around so I’m not sure who’s done it and not, so I tag everyone who wants to give this tag a shot 😉
