First and Last – A Book/Series You’ve Read and Enjoyed, But Can’t Bring Yourself to Read Again

I’ve been enjoying The Wedding Date series by Jasmine Guillory, but I don’t see myself ever rereading them. The books are fun, but they follow a formula, and they’re all kind of the same. However, I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.


With A Friend of My Friend – A Book/Series Someone Recommended to You That Turned Out to Be Different from What You Had Expected

Frankly in Loveby David Yoon wasn’t recommended to me by anyone specific, but I saw it posted all over Bookstagram, and I was led to believe that it was going to be a fun, YA rom-com. It turned out that this book was not a fun, YA rom-com, and I ended disliking the book and despising the main character.


Double Date – A Book Whose Sequel You Immediately Had to Read

I had to dive into The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson as soon as I finished Truly Devious. Truly Devious ended on a cliff-hanger, and I needed to know what happened next.



Let’s Go to The Movies – A Book/Series That Should Be Adapted to The Screen


I think that the Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff needs to be adapted to a television show. There’s so much action and adventure, and I would love to watch it all unfold on television.


Dreamy Stargazing – A Book That Made You Go Ahhhh And Ohhhh


I had a hard time with this question, but I ended up picking The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid because of the old Hollywood glamour and the drama that unfolded.


Fun at The Fair – A Book Full of Colors


This was another difficult question, but I settled on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum because of the Yellow Brick Road, Emerald City, and Ruby Red Slippers.



Amusement Park Adventure – A Book That Was A Rollercoaster


I thought that The Cruel Prince by Holly Black was a rollercoaster. There were so many twists and turns, and the book kept me on my toes while reading it.



Picnic with Cherries – A Book Whose Food Descriptions Made You Feel All *Heart Eyes*


I am absolutely in love with the food descriptions in Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by Roselle Lim! All of the food in this book sounded amazing, and I wanted to try every dish that the main character made.


Trip to The Museum – A Book That Taught You Valuable Stuff

I don’t know if this counts as valuable stuff, but The Forgotten Home Child by Genevieve Graham taught me about a dark period in Canadian history that I didn’t know about.
