The TAYTAY Book Tag

Happy new year!

Let's start 2015 with a bang -- and that means books. And Taylor Swift. I was tagged by Blessie from Mischievous Reads to participate in Taylor Swift book tag last December 17.  I went crazy when I saw Blessie's post and I already started to squee in delight. TAYLOR SWIFT!!! Whoever made this tag, you are brilliant. I love you so much. Comment here, tweet me, email me, or any way, and let's fangirl together. Seriously.


Pick a book or series you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with.

Fallen series by Lauren Kate
I read this series when I started to obsess about reading and just finding out new genres, themes, etc. But I remember that I really loved it. I became obsess with it as I have in Twilight saga (stifle your groans). I even stalk and read multiple sites about it, used the book cover as my Facebook profile, watched videos, and all the fangirl stuff. When the last book, Rapture, arrived I was excited. But I couldn't dive into their world again and I feel like the story is just running in circles. I DNF-ed Rapture.

Pick a book with a red cover.

Because I fell in love with this foil luxe edition of Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins the first time I saw it.

Pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic.

P.S I Love You by Cecelia Ahern
(Goodreads * Review)

My first book from Cecelia Ahern, and that was also the time I started to love and enjoy reading. This book made me cry and laugh. My heart broke a million of pieces. One of the first books that I experienced an emotional roller coaster ride. It's one of my favorites.

Pick a bad character you couldn't help but love.

Warner from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
(Goodreads * Review)

He's a good trouble, though. A very good trouble.

Pick a book someone ruined the ending for.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

If I were a harsh person, I'd say that I wish I could slap the people who went all over internet (a DAY after--or before--it was published) to spread the spoiler or some "heads up", they say. I was prepared by Allegiant's ending that it caused only a little shock. I'd rather bawl and have my heart break than feel nothing at all.

Pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development.

Chelsea Knot from Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Chelsea, the main character in this book, loves to gossip until her actions leads to unexpected consequences. I love the how the author wrapped everything in one simple yet meaningful book and how everything turned out in the end.

Pick your most anticipated book release. 

Fairest by Marissa Meyer
The Heir by Kiera Cass
Confess by Colleen Hoover
Ensnared by A.G Howard
P.S I Still Love You by Jenny Han (no cover yet)

My gosh. This is one of the hardest question you'd ask in a bookworm, along with her favorite author and book. Because obviously, we couldn't pick just one. So I'm mentioning five from my most anticipated 2015 release. (Doesn't mean they're the top five; I picked randomly.)

Pick your favorite book couple.

There are a lot of great book couples that I love but I picked Will Cooper and Laken Cohen from Slammed series by Collen Hoover. They're the safest answer because they indeed have a forever.

Pick a book that made you cry a lot. 

My gosh, can I pick P.S I Love You by Cecelia Ahern again? Or Slammed series by Colleen Hoover? Because they're the books that made my eyes go like waterfalls. But if they're disqualified, I'd say Dear John or A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. It's Nicholas Sparks. He enjoys making his readers cry.

Pick a book that you love so much, you just shake off the haters.

The Host by Stephanie Meyer

Ha. I wish I could say that to Fallen series or Twilight saga, but not anymore because we are never ever getting back together.

I've been quiet about this (or just didn't had a chance to break the silence :3) but I loved The Host (funny, it's from the same author of Twilight) I read it year 2011 and I might be a fresh [dystopian] reader then but I loved it. 

Pick the most over-hyped book or series that didn't work for you at all.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

I'm sorry, but I hated this book. I didn't even finished it! The story was so long and they're just running in circles. The love story is also sickening I just have to get rid of it. And I did. I couldn't believe when I learned there was a movie. And a bunch of follow-up books with the same thickness.

Pick the most under-hyped book or series that you think deserves the spotlight

Entangled (Spellbound trilogy) by Nikki Jefford

I love this trilogy by indie author Nikki Jefford. If only there'd be more books on the series! They deserve spotlight along with What I Didn't Say by Keary Taylor and Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine. The list goes on.

Pick a couple you think should end up together.

This is a "duh" moment because we all know that most two main characters end up together so there's no surprise or more wishing there. There's a couple, though, that I really, really, really want to end up together. And that's Tobias "Four" Eaton and Tris Prior.

Pick a forbidden love in a book or series.

With YA novels, there are just so many. However, I'm picking the one off my favorites: Meghan Chase and Prince Ash from Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa.


I don't know if you already did this or you don't do book tags but I'm still tagging you:
Elena from Novel Sounds
Precious from Fragments of Life


That's it! If only I could make for each of Taylor songs, I would.
Show some Taylor love! Just leave your fangirl comments below. ;)

May your 2015 be filled with awesomeness and glitz and fun! Have a sparkling 2015!

  1. I love your answers for this tag! As for the underrated Frost series, I have it but am yet to read it! I recently read Beautiful Creatures, but it was slow and boring in places, so it wasn't really worth it. The Host is AMAZING. Keep on shaking off those haters ;)


Don't leave with your thoughts unshared!
