Today, I'm sharing a new book tag created by Cielo over at Bellerose Reads who tagged me in her new Positions book tag. I love working on book tags inspired by pop music, so I was thrilled to get the tag. If I'm being totally honest, I wasn't super into Positions, Ariana Grande's latest album. I'm much more of a Thank U Next fan because that album was far more lyrically focused. Positions reminds me a lot of Sweetener. I do like "POV", the closing track of the album. Still, I'm super excited to share the tag because these are some of the best tag questions I've ever seen. Cielo did a wonderful job coming up with really cool prompts. I had a blast thinking of books that fit them. As always, just click the book title to read my review of any of the books I mentioned. And don't forget to read the original tag here.
shut up – a book you couldn’t shut up about
There are way too many. Honestly, a ton of them are already sprinkled through this post because they're my favorites so of course I'm going to talk about them constantly. But this probably goes to Look by Zan Romanoff. I'm pretty sure this is the book I've yelled about most this year because it felt like it needed the extra love. Everybody needs to read this book, and I have not seen enough people talking about it, so I've made it my job to talk about it as much as possible.
34+35 – a book that you stayed up to finish
Today, Tonight, Tomorrow is one of the few books I stayed up late to finish in the last year. I've mostly stopped reading at night because I get so swept into the books, but I started reading this one early in the day and wound up glued to it all night. The book takes place in a single day/night, and the pacing is perfect to keep you turning the pages while still getting fully immersed in the characters. Fantastic book.
motive – a book that left you questioning everything
This has to go to Permanent Record. The book is all about this guy who dropped out of NYU and has no direction in life. The book is a super close first person and more of a character study than anything else. His crisis about growing up definitely triggered my own. How do we all know what we're supposed to do with our lives? How do you get there? It was both comforting and spiral inducing beyond it just being a brilliant book.just like magic – a book with all your favorite tropes
