Let’s hop on that Hogwarts train – Harry Potter Book Tag

Hi guys! How was your end-of-the-year celebrations? Did you receive a lot of gifts? Mine was great, it felt really good to stay at home with my loved ones and well… eat glorious food!

2018 is officially here (Has it really been 18 YEARS since year 2000??! Damn, I feel old…) and with it brand new resolutions or, for people like me who don’t take ones, at least a new start I guess. So, what’s your plans for 2018? I’m letting you think about that and since you’re here, you might as well keep reading…

I’m back today with a new blog post, more precisely a tag… a HARRY POTTER BOOKISH TAG! Who’s excited? I’m a HUGE fan of Harry Potter. I think it’s those books that really got me into reading. That magical atmosphere, those characters, the writing,… I LOVE IT ALL. Anyway, I HAD to do this tag created by the lovely Trang @ Bookidote, I hope you’ll like it and you’ll do it on your blog.

A BOOK YOU FOUND THE THEME INTERESTING, BUT YOU’D LIKE TO REWRITE IT.

Ink (The Skin Books #1) by Alice Broadway.

It was a really great concept, but it was missing something. The pacing felt a little slow at the beginning and the world building was a bit flat. Also, I wanted to feel more for the characters.

 

THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES THAT GOT YOU HOOKED.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer.

No surprise there! Cinder was AMAZING! If you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?! It was intense, the characters felt real and the setting was imaginative as hell. A great premise for an even greater series!

 

A BOOK YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE RIGHT NOW.

How To Disappear by Sharon Huss Roat.

I discovered this one via Goodreads a few weeks ago and it seems promising. This contemporary YA novel shines a light on social media and I just can’t wait to get my hands on it!

 

A KILLER BOOK. BOTH SENSES. TAKE IT AS YOU LIKE.

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.

This book is PERFECTION. It’s beautifully written and I felt really connected to all the characters. It gave me ALL THE FEELINGS. A must-read!

 

A BOOK YOU FOUND REALLY CONFUSING.

The Knife Of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness.

I didn’t get all the hype. Maybe it was the particularity of the speech or the originality of the story in which I couldn’t fully get immersed, I don’t know it just didn’t make my top shelf.

 

YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL BOOK.

Wanderlost by Jen Malone.

Travelling, a cute boy and a sister relationship, I think this book has everything I love. It was sweet, funny and got me a serious case of wanderlust. Plus, Aubree is A++.

 

A DARK TWISTED BOOK.

An Ember In The Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes #1) by Sabaa Tahir.

Tahir has crafted a rich and immersive world with excellent POV characters. It’s a bit violent and some crazy, sick things is happening, but keep reading, the story is totally worth it!

 

A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU IN A GREAT WAY, REVEALS TO BE MORE THAN IT IS.

This Is How It Happened by Paula Stokes.

I got this book for my sister’s birthday and I don’t regret it one second! It was a really great surprise. You think it’s about drunk driving, but the story goes way beyond that. It tackles though subjects like online shaming. It’s incredibly thought-provoking and beautifully told. Go get it!

Did you enjoy this tag? What did you think of my answers? Anything in common?

 What’s your take on Harry Potter? Love it or hate it? Who’s your favorite character?

  1. Great answers for this tag Nyx 😀 (also I LOVE Harry Potter, it’s the series that got me into reading so it’s always going to be a favourite of mine).
    Cinder is definitely a book that got me hooked, it was the book that introduced me to Marissa Meyer’s writing and she’s now one of my favourite authors so I think that kind of speaks for itself a little. Also I loved I’ll Give You the Sun, god it was such a beautiful book and actually it’s one I really need to re-read one day soon as well. Oh it’s a shame about The knife of Never Letting Go and Ink, the latter is still on my to-read list so hopefully I’ll be able to get around to it one day soon, I’m not sure what to expect but who knows right?
    Great answers, and great post as well. 🙂 ❤

    1. Thanks! 😊 We’re re-watching the Harry Potter movies with my sister and now with this tag I feel like re-reading them all over again 😁 Yaaay to Cinder and I’ll Give You The Sun. I totally fell in love with Cinder’s world in a way I haven’t in a very long time! I was just SO immersed in the story and those awesome characters 😍 As for I’ll Give You The Sun, it was an amazing emotional read 💞 Yes, The Knife Of Never Letting Go just wasn’t for me I guess and Ink fell really flat. 😕 Maybe you’ll like it more than I did 😊 Thanks for your sweet words Beth 😘😘

      1. Oh I always feel like re-reading the books, and actually hearing you’re watching the films is making me want to re-watch them as well! 😀
        Cinder was brilliant. I fell in love with the series after reading that first book, and fell in love with Marissa Meyer’s writing after that series! 😀
        Shame about The Knife of Never Letting Go and Ink, but we can’t enjoy every book. 🙂
        That’s all right! 😀 ❤

    1. Thanks, you should read some of them 😉 Yaaay, Hermione is also my favourite 😁 I totally get it, it can be scary to start a series with so many books (and big ones!) but I promise you’ll totally fall in love with that world! Give the first book a try and if you don’t like it, no need to read them all 😊

    1. Yes, it really is dark and twisted but I guess the story is worth it otherwise I never would have read it haha 😅 Oh yees, I read the Cinder series so fast, that was just crazy good 😍

  2. Really cool tag! I’ve heard so many mixed things about Ink, despite the concept being awesome, so I’ve been really on the fence about it. And Cinder was amazing! I felt the same way about Knife of Never Letting go (as I’ve mentioned to your sister loads 😉 ) I just found it super confusing too.

    1. Yees, the concept was really promising but I don’t know it fell flat somehow. 😕 Yaay Cinder, it makes me want to read it again 🙈 So glad I’m not the only one feeling like this about Knife of Never Letting Go! Thanks for stopping by 😘😘

  3. Among the gifts wwe received was a… 1kg of chocolate xD I am not even kidding you 😀 grandma. It was a pretty amazing gift, just beacuse of the shock value xD (yes, it’s ONE CHOCOLATE BAR. It’s BIG. :DDD)

    As for Cinder, I am suffering from the hype burn. No need to explain, probably 😀

    I can’t say I’ve read any of these books though! I guess I don’t read a lot of YA, do I 😀

    1. OH MY, that is SUCH a cool gift! You now have chocolate for the whole year (probably less 🙈) 😁😁 Well, you should try some of them 😉 Thanks for stopping by 😘😘

  4. I love this tag and I absolutely love Harry Potter (obviously)⚡ My favourite character is definitely Luna; I really want to get another Harry Potter tattoo but it has to be something Lunaish 💖
    I absolutely loved Cinder, I really want to reread it and then finish the rest of the series. I loved The Knife of Never Letting Go, the writing is a bit confusing but the last book is just SO good, I really just love that series but I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it!

    1. Yaaaay to Harry Potter! 😁 Oh yes, Luna is awesome!! Got a soft spot for Hermione 😊You really should, all Cinder books are AMAZING! 😍😍 Yes, I guess the writing confused me a little bit. Well…we can’t like very book haha 🙂
