Awards/Tags is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.
Pokemon GO Book Tag
If I’m being completely honest, I play this game by proxy of other people as I have the most basic of basic phone plans (which means no data lololol).
If I were to look back to the beginning of time, that book would actually be a manga and that would probably be Naruto or Bleach but because this is book-centric, I’ll go with my standard The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Poooooonyboooooooooooy. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. And maybe in like 10 years when we all become ancient: Harry Potter.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is the reincarnate of Zubat (or Rattata).
I’m currently reading The Novice by Taran Matharu and it’s basically Pokemon meets Harry Potter meets Warcraft/Lord of the Rings and it is VERY evident but I’m still enjoying myself? What does that say about me omg.
STORMLIGHT FUCKING ARCHIVE by Brandon Sanderson. How the fuck is this going to be an intended 10,000 page (ish) series?
No book has kept me up at night (either due to being scary or because I had to keep reading). I love sleep and sleep loves me.
This changes with the shift of the winds. My favourite relationships are those that aren’t actually ships.
Kell + his Coat (A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab)
Todd + Manchee (Dog) (Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness)
Christopher + Bridget (Pigeon) (The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands)
Kaz + His Walking Stick (Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo)
Either any contemporary romance (usually) or those cat-and-mouse dystopian stories where the protagonist is running from someone. Hopefully that makes sense, otherwise just think of the premise of Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard (sans Mare being annoying AF), Knife of Never Letting Go, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Barudgo, Half a King by Joe Abercrombie etc.
I’m actually of the team that series should have some semblance of a definitive ending though. But why does like the duologies and series (4+) are becoming more of a thing and stretching one idea for another 18731827312837 pages.
PATRICK NESS. (But you already knew that.)
Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I did start it but other commitments came up. One day I hope to binge it all seeing as how it’s just chilling on my drawer. But I think part of the hype comes from Pierce being a good looking dude; definite Man Crush Monday material for sure.
Aside from books with answers that I require: A Conjuring of Light (Schwab) and Crooked Kingdom (Bardugo), to piggyback from the autobuy author question, Patrick Ness’ new book “Release” is much needed yesterday.
If you told me that Historical Fiction was the genre that held my favourite read last year (re: The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands), I would have told you to shut the front door. I didn’t even actively request the ARC. It was seriously from an extra pile at the blogger event I attended…and I picked up a copy and was blown away. Dynamic pacing. Bromance. Pigeon feels. Explosions. Mystery and intrigue. Middle Grade is slowly winning me over.
First edition Hardcovers for Ness’ books; including the entire Chaos Walking trilogy and The Crash of Hennington.

…and you! (Tagging everyone is difficult // tagged more people than usual as it’s been a while since I changed the list up // I also don’t check if you’ve done them or not because reasons // p.s. you should visit everyone above)
I might not be the best at replying back to comments as of late but I’m amazing at tagging new followers and such and such in these random tags lolololol.
