I hope everyone is having a lovely August. I was recently tagged by Naemi @ A Bookowl’s Corner to do the feelings book tag and I absolutely loved the prompts she provided so I knew I had to do the tag. Thank you so much for tagging me!! Definitely check out her post and answers!

Also, I’m trying out different things on photoshop with the book graphics, so let me know what you think of them please!
Loathing: The first book you would burn if you were stuck in a blizzard and books were the only flammable material you had on hand
Author: Lauren Kate
Publication date: Dec 8th 2009
Genre: Fantasy, Romance
Without a doubt the Fallen series.
I read the books back when I was around 16/17, and I know even then I disliked the books but had a strange fascination with seeing how the books ended (I never finished the series though). I cannot believe I spent so much time hate-reading it and never want to look at those books again.
Despair: A book that had you sobbing your eyes out
Title: The Ghosts We Keep
Author: Mason Deaver
Publication date: June 1st 2021
Genre: Contemporary, LGBT+
The most recent book that made me sob so much was The Ghosts We Keep.
I cried multiple times while reading the book, it was so beautifully written and spoke so much about grief and what its like to lose a family member. I’m pretty sure I had to lie down after I finished just to think about it and cry some more.
Schadenfreude: A book in which a character who had it coming finally got what they deserved
Title: Crooked Kingdom
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Publication date: Sept 27th 2016
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
First of all, I love this word and English really needs a word for this.
Second, I think I have to say Crooked Kingdom. I can’t exactly go into why because spoilers but it was soooo good to see a certain character get his comeuppance at long last. It was so well deserved, and the wait was worth it to see justice be served to be quite frank.
Envy: A character you would like to trade places with
Title: Percy Jackson & the Olympians (The Lightning Thief)
Author: Rick Riordan
Publication date: March 1st 2006
hmmm this is a tough one.
I think one character I’d love to swap places with, just for a little while, is Percy Jackson. I mean, imagine being able to have his abilities, and wield a cool sword like that?? Do I want to relive my angsty teen years? Not really. But do I want to spend a fun chaotic summer at Camp Half-Blood? Absolutely.
Honestly, I’d probably be willing to trade places with almost any of the camp half-blood kids during summer time to spend some time in the camp having fun (definitely not during the academic year when I have to worry about monsters coming after me).
Love: A book you will keep shoving in everyone’s faces, no matter how hard they might try to resist
Title: Love From A to Z
Author: S. K. Ali
Publication date: April 30th 2019
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Love from A to Z!!!! I adore this book so much.
I don’t even read m/f romance books that much but I love this one so so much and will continue to scream it from the rooftops. Thinking about the book fills me with so much joy. It was one of the first books I read in 2020 and it made me fall in love with reading all over again.
