Bookish Courtship Tag

Anddddddddddddddddddddd I’m back to doing my tags. Do we want to guess when this one was from?? If you sadly guessed April, you would be correct! That’s right – April. *forever crying* ONE DAY, EVERYONE, ONE DAY. I would like to thank Mrenee over at That Wild Soul (such a pretty, pretty blog) for tagging me for this, well, forever ago! OOPS. OOPS. OOPS.

Phase 1: Initial attraction: a book that you bought because of the cover


Well, the last one I did that for was Spindle by E K Johnston. I had done that with her first book in the series, too, because not only is the physical cover stunning, it’s basically the same thing underneath, AND I CAN’T DEAL WITH HOW PRETTY IT CAN BE WITH AND WITHOUT THE DUST JACKETS. UGH. Plus, it does seem intriguing.

Phase 2: First impressions: a book that you got because of the summary

the wicked deep

The Wicked Deep totally got me with the first few sentences and then the summary really convinced me fully. It sounds so good: Hocus Pocus meets Practical Magic meets Salem Witch Trials.

Phase 3: Sweet talk: a book with great writing


Warcross by Marie Lu had some fantastic writing. I feel like I could have gotten so lost and bored since I’m not a gamer, but she fully convinced me to love this book with her amazing writing.

Phase 4: First date: a first book of a series which made you want to pursue the rest of the series


Cinder by Marissa Meyer! I had to stick a TLC book in here somehow, and this book really started it all. I had no clue where Meyer would take the series next, but I did know that eventually I would have to devour it all.

Phase 5: Late night phone call: a book that kept you up all night long


Little Monsters by Kara Thomas was the last book that really kept me going, eager to finish it up and find out what on earth was going on.

Phase 6: Always on my mind: a book that you could not stop thinking about


Cress. Because Cresswell consumes my fangirl soul. XD

Phase 7: Getting physical: a book in which you love the way it feels

…all of them? Such a strange question because don’t all physical books feel the same? I DON’T KNOWWWWWWWWWWWW.

Phase 8: Meeting the parents: a book you would recommend to your friends and family


Six of Crows! I try to recommend this to just about everyone. I tried to get my grandma to read it, but she got confused and I stole it back from her. XD Maybe one day?

Phase 9: Think about the future: a book series that you know you’ll re-read many times in the future 

…TLC. Or SOC. They are timeless and the fangirling will never get old.

Phase 10: Share the love: who would you like to tag?

There were a lot of things going on this week, so I’m going to bow out of tagging people. Feel free to tag yourself if you enjoyed it! 🙂

What do you think? What are some of your answers to this? Do we have any of the same? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. Warcross really does have amazing writing. It’s so stylish and professional.
    Little Monsters was definitely addicting. I know I completely agree with you on that. It was so hard to put down!
    I really should try to reread Six of Crows sometimes…

    1. Yesssssssssss. So professional. I felt so smart reading it. XD
      And YES. I was like, I don’t really feel like binge reading it, but apparently that’s what is going to happen.
      I’m with you, Kate! I feel like it might be time for a reread soon. 😉

  2. I’m hoping to finally read the Six of Crows duology next month! Everyone loves it so much and honestly? It sounds great 😍 I really liked the world Leigh Bardugo built with the Grishaverse, so I’m really excited about reading it!

    1. Yessssssssss. I hope you do too! It’s a different kind of feel to it than the Grisha stories, but it’s still such an intriguing world and it has everything that was amazing in the Grisha books but kind of amped up? I totally think you’re going to love it! 😀

  3. This seems like such an amazing book tag! I haven’t read six of crows but based on the synopsis it doesn’t sound like something I’d enjoy- amazing tag all the same though!
