Hey everyone! Guess whose birthday it is today! To celebrate it here on my blog I’m doing the Book Birthday tag created by Antonia’s Always Books. Last year I also did a tag on my birthday and I highly enjoyed it! So I’m doing it again. Let’s get started!
BIRTHDAY CAKE: A BOOK WITH A PLOT THAT SEEMS CLICHE, BUT YOU ADORE IT ANYWAY
The book that comes to mind first is Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I adore it! I’m sure you’ve heard of this book before. The plot is a ‘you’ve got mail’ kind of situation, but with the most adorable gay main character. The romance is amazing! I re-read it just recently (for the fifth time) and I still adore it!
PARTY GUESTS: YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK RELEASE FOR THIS YEAR
Leah On The Offbeat by Becky Albertalli! This is a sequel to Simon VS. following a different character, Leah. It has a f/f romance and the main character is fat and bisexual. The book came out at the end of April and I’ve already read it! (Spoilers for this month’s wrap-up!) I loved it and gave it five out of five stars. It’s not as good as Simon Vs., but it’s still Ah-May-Zing!
BIRTHDAY PRESENTS: A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU WITH HOW MUCH YOU LOVED IT
I picked up Kids of Appetite by David Arnold on a whim, because the blurb sounded interesting and I needed a book to take with me to Croatia. Boy, was I surprised about how much I loved it! It turned out to be a new favourite. I would most highly recommend this! It’s very underrated.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY” SONG: A BOOK THAT CERTAINLY DESERVED ALL THE HYPE IT GOT
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer! I love this series. (BTW, I’m really enjoying the fact that this tag let’s me talk about some of my favourites!) Anyway, the main thing I love about this series are the characters. I grew fond of them. I love their dynamics and the romance between Cinder and Kai and Wolf and Scarlet is fantastic!
HAPPY MUSIC: A BOOK WITH SOME VERY BEAUTIFUL AND TRULY MEMORABLE QUOTES
I absolutely love the writing style of I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. I often found myself re-reading sentences or paragraphs because they were so beautiful! I still remember some quotes from this novel and that never happens!
GETTIN OLDER: A BOOK THAT YOU READ A LONG TIME AGO? BUT YOU THINK YOU WOULD APPRECIATE MORE IF YOU READ IT AS A MORE MATURE READER
I actually don’t have an answer for this prompt. I usually read in my age category. There are quite a few books I think I would appreciate less right now, but not the other way around.
SWEET BIRTHDAY MEMORIES: A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU INCREDIBLY HAPPY DURING A SAD OR DEMANDING PERIOD OF YOUR LIFE
I read The Selection series by Kiera Cass when I got surgery two years ago. I had to stay in bed for a week and I read through the first four novels. The Crown I read two months later, when it came out. I adored this series at the time, but have fallen out of love since.
I hope you enjoyed this tag! Thanks for reading! See you next time!
