Hi everyone! Today I’ll be doing a book tag (long time no see) created by Erin @ Reading On A Star. You all know how behind I am on tags (my sincerest apologies) so I have to do the seasonal ones first before they are irrelevant haha. (and for once, I am on time!)
Many thanks to Belle @ This Belle Reads Too, Drea @ Mirkwood Books, Nadia @ The Journeying Bibliophile, Riddhi @ Whispering Stories, Sarah @ Bateau Reads and Tiction @ Fictionally Crazy for tagging me! You all are so sweet to think of me. 💙

⛄ Snow Day – What’s your “comfort” book?
Usually I would go with Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles, but a new comfort read would be Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo! I love the characters in this duology SO SO much, each of them with their own backstory and pasts, each of them misfits, but band together to have some sort of family. The banter, the trust between them never fails to make me smile… FAM BAM OKAY! And the plot is so immersive that the hours just fly by!
😇 Snow Angels – What’s a book that you love so much you would want to be buried with it (a little morid, but…)?
(Shall I be sneaky and use Six of Crows again? No. No. Self control.)
I choose to be buried with The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. It is another of my new favourites (you can read about how much I love it here) and it is rather apt as it deals with the concept of time. Since I’ll be in the grave forever, I’m pretty sure Addie can keep me company.
🧦 Warm Socks – What’s a book that makes you feel warm inside? (The fluffiest, cutest romance you’ve ever read?)
Geekerella by Ashley Poston! Geekerella is a really happy and light-hearted read, in the sense that though there are some dark moments, the overall tone is one bursting with joy. I loved the fandom element so much, and the romance was so sweet!
☕ Hot Cocoa – What winter-themed novels have you previously read?
I’m not really a seasonal reader since it’s constantly summer where I live… however, one that comes to mind would be A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas, because of that beautiful winter-themed title and the fact that it revolves around the Winter Solstice!
🛷 Sledding – What’s a book with the best plot twists? Who’s an author that always keeps you on your toes?
(I could totally use Six of Crows again because I am always dazzled by Kaz’s elaborate schemes and how things turn out!)
A book that surprised me not only with it’s plot twists, but with it’s immense superiority over book 1 would be The Wicked King by Holly Black. I was quite disappointed by The Cruel Prince (you can read why here) but The Wicked King totally changed the course of the series… I remember vividly being extremely anxious and shocked during those last 100 pages or so, and then scrambling to pick up book 3!
🧥 Ugly Sweaters – What’s a book with the ugliest cover?
I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll say it again. I am not a fan of this cover! I get that A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas is a spin-off tale but you turn the iconic and beautiful colours into this monstrosity (in my humble opinion)?
🎥 Movie Marathon – What’s the last book you binge read?
A Sky Beyond the Storm! GUYS THIS IS NEW FIVE STAR INCOMING, WATCH OUT! I binge-read the whole An Ember in the Ashes series as a matter of fact, I admire and love Laia and Elias and everyone else so badly, and the plot and world building was just incredible! I’m definitely grateful that all the books are out already, I have no idea how I would have survived 2 years worth of waiting because each of the books got me gasping and crying and wanting more.
(goodbye while I come to terms with the fact that this series is over??)
🎅 Letter to Santa – What’s a book that’s on your wishlist this year?
I have a bit of news to share! I finally took the leap of faith and signed up for Netgalley. I’m a bit intimidated but I hope to get approved an ARC for The Rose Code by Kate Quinn. Kate Quinn writes such compelling historical fictions which was action-packed (The Alice Network, The Huntress) and I am super excited for her new war novel release next March!
