Hello bookworms! How’s your Monday morning so far? I was almost not going to post today but then I discovered this tag sitting in my drafts, and it seemed interesting so I thought I might as well do it. Plus I found that I already had more than half of it done, sooo #convenient. Not to mention it seems like a lot of fun! Okay, okay, let me just get onto the details of the tag
before I continue making excuses nobody is believing.
This was something I was tagged in 2015, I think? By Erika @ Erika in Bookventureland and Josie @ Josie’s Book Corner, and more recently, Summer @ Xingsings. Thank you so much! I’ve known these bloggers for a long time now, and I mean it with all my heart when I say I love them and their blogs! Which basically you must go and check them out if you haven’t already!! ❤
Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?
Erm, every book on my shelf right now?? Lol, just kidding, but probably most.. #noshame But if I were to choose just one, well, obviously my go-to answer for this would be A Thousand Pieces of You (omgggg that cover is SO GORGEOUS. Love at first sight, people!) but in an effort to be creative (ha. Me, creative? Eh, I guess I could try.) I’ve went with a different book:
I couldn’t resist, okay? I mean, just look at that cover. IT’S SO PRETTY. I had to! ❤ Though after reading a few reviews on it, I dunno when I’m going to read it… not sure if it’s going to be something I’ll love, you know? But it looks damn good on my shelves! Lol.
Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you bought because of the summary?
I like to think most books I buy are based at least on the summary, so there are several I could choose for this, I think. But I’m going to go with:
When I read the summary of this book, I knew I had to read it! And thankfully, it paid off because I loved this book. 😉 I have a review on it if you want to check it out!
Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?
Ooh, there’s actually a lot I could choose for this one?? Either I’m really easy to please in the writing department or I’ve been reading really well-written books, I don’t know. But it was quite easy when this book popped into my head:
This book seriously has such BEAUTIFUL writing. omg. I only wish I was able to write like this?? Because it was just so lovely. Go read it if you want proof! Or check out some of its quotes, I swear they’re amazing.
Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?
Ooh, there’s been quite a few good first books I’ve read! It’s hard to choose just one (duh, as it always is) but I’m going to go with Shatter Me:
Once I finished this book I just had to read the next one!! (And for the record, I’m totally glad I did, because the series just got better. YAY!)
Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?
Ehh, sooo all the books I’ve loved?? Only half-joking. A lot of the books I’ve loved usually ended up being books I couldn’t put down, you know?
And who needs sleep, anyway? But I’m going to go with one of them that popped into my head:
This book was so addicting! I just flew through it, and it definitely kept me up way past my bedtime, oops. Then again, my bedtime is hardly set these days, soo. Point is, I stayed up really late for this one! #noregrets
Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?
Omg this book!! I love it so much. You guys saw this coming, didn’t you?? 😀
After reading this I couldn’t stop thinking about it! I am positively dying for the next book, oh my god. ❤ ❤
Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?
Okay, so although I wasn’t a huge fan of the actual story, I loved the feel of this book:
I have the hardcover of it, and it feels amazing! Only wish the story was just as good…
Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?
Oh! (Aside form Harry Potter, of course), definitely this book:
This book is SO AMAZING—Go read it asap if you haven’t already!! Such a powerful and heart-wrenching read. (On a completely unrelated note; I’m so excited for the movie!)
Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re-read many times in the future?
HARRY POTTER. My childhood. My love. My bookish comfort. That is all.
BUT if I was to give another shot at being creative (even though it’s not even creative, really), I’d go with The Infernal Devices because THE FEELS. Will never get old!
Phase 10 – Share the love: Who do you tag?
Not sure who did this and who didn’t, so I’m going to tag a few people—feel free to ignore it if you don’t want to do it or if you already have. And if you haven’t done this, but want to, just let me know! I’d love to tag you and add you to the list. It would be great to see everyone’s answers. 😉

So that’s it for the Book Courtship tag! This was lots of fun; again, I urge you to do this if you’re interested! Just link back to this post so I can come check it out (and fangirl along with you, of course). XD And if you don’t want to do it, that’s perfectly fine, just ignore it or just let me know. This was such a refreshing and fun tag! But unfortunately this is the end of this post. ❤ Hope you all are enjoying your Monday! Happy reading!
