Lysandra | A book with a cover change you loved
I’m going with Anna and the French Kiss (the entire series) by Stephanie Perkins. I love these books, and these matching paperback covers are super cute.
Abraxos | A book that’s better on the inside than it looks on the outside
I get the purpose of the cover for None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio, but it doesn’t really draw my eye. However, the story is an amazing diverse read. I highly recommend this one.
Erilea | A series with great world-building
I haven’t read a ton of fantasy yet, and my go-to would be Harry Potter, but I’m using that for another prompt below, so I’ll go with The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. I love The Darkling! I also love the new covers for this series as well.
Rifthold | A book that combines genres
According to Goodreads, this is dystopian and fantasy, so I’m picking Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. It wasn’t my favorite book by any means (sorry, not sorry), but it wasn’t terrible either. I’m listening to Glass Sword now. I’ll probably get around to King’s Cage eventually.
Damaris | A book based on/inspired by a myth/legend
I absolutely loved The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. I was trying to find a book for this one, and I realized I haven’t read many books inspired by myths/legends. I need to work on that. I started book two, but I put it down because it wasn’t holding my attention.
Kaltain Rompier | A book with an unexpected twist
One book would definitely be Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I didn’t expect the twist that came along at all, and I’m usually pretty good at guessing what will happen in books.
Assassin’s Keep | A book with an unreliable narrator
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart definitely has an unreliable narrator. I won’t tell you all about it; just read it. It’s another book with a plot twist that I didn’t see coming.
Asterin Blackbeak | A book that’s got SQUAD GOALS
The boys in The Deal (and the other Off-Campus books) by Elle Kennedy are so tightly knit. They are roommates, and teammates. I finished books 1 & 2, and need to read the other two ASAP.
Terrasen | A book that feels like home
How could I not pick Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (well really the entire series) by J.K. Rowling? These books have been my companion since I was young. The only fanfiction I wrote was HP related, and I just love the world, the characters, etc. Hogwarts will always feel like home to me.
Aelin Ashryver Galathynius | A book with the power to destroy you
I’m going to go with My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. Her writing is amazing, and this book (along with a lot of her others) blew me away. She focuses on controversial topics, but without being preachy.
Manon Blackbeak | A book that intimidated you
I’ll pick The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I watched the movie (loved it!) before reading the book. The book is pretty gigantic, and it kind of dragged on too much. But overall, it was pretty entertaining. I think this is one instance where I prefer the movie though.
Rowan Whitethorn | A book that makes you swoon
Um I’m going with A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. My baby Rhys is in it, so obviously I’m picking it. He’s sexy as heck, so amazing, etc. I absolutely loved this book, and I plan on re-reading it soon before reading A Court of Wings and Ruin.
Chaol Westfall | A book that challenged you to see things differently
I picked Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. This book could also be used for the power to destroy you prompt. I had to take breaks while reading because my heart hurt. I think that everyone should read this book. It reminds us how lucky most of us are…and how hardships are hopefully possible to overcome with a little help from friends.
Fleetfoot | A book that you received as a gift
One of my absolute favorites, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, I won in a giveaway. I hadn’t read anything by her before this, and I ended up finding a favorite author. I’ve only read this and Eleanor & Park, but both are amazing. I can relate soooo much to Cath in this book. She’s basically me in a book. No joke.
Eye of Elena | A book you found right when you needed it
I’m picking The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. I’m pretty sure I was in a huge reading slump (yet again grrr), and someone suggested I read this one. It’s one of my absolute favorites.
