How I Choose My Books Tag

I’ve finally put up my shelves and took pictures of each of the books for this tag! This is my last post before school officially starts and I’m just hoping that I can keep a consistent schedule because it really means a lot to me.

Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up that book in the first place?


Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner and I picked this book up because I fell in love with The Serpent King after I got it in my Owlcrate. TSK has officially made Jeff Zentner an auto buy author for me and so that’s basically why I bought this book and I’m really happy I did.

Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy but did. Why did you read it in the first place?

Confess by Colleen Hoover and I read this book because I was going on a long road trip from northern Colorado to the southern part and I was looking for a book to read in Barnes and Noble. This was a book I was debating and if anything I thought it would be a book I only liked a little but I ended up really loving it.

Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick a book at random. How did you discover this book?


Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor! I actually checked this book out after getting a pin with the logo on it from a book festival I went to a year or so ago and while I still haven’t read it, I’m excited to.

Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you. What did you think of it?


Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick! I read this book such a long time ago that all I can remember was that 7th grade me really did love it. I don’t think I’d have the same opinion if I picked it up now but who knows.

Pick a book you discovered through book blogs. Did it live up to the hype?


Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke. If you’ve seen my review of this book than you already know the answer but no, this book sadly did not live up to the hype. It just fell short for me and I wish it hadn’t but what can you do.

Find a book on your shelves with a one word title. What drew you to this book?


Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout!! I had heard so much about this book from booktubers and just people in bookstores but omg I fell in love with the cover and the idea of aliens living among people.

What book did you discover through a film/TV adaptation?


The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson!

Think of your all-time favourite books. When did you read these and why did you pick them up in the first place?


A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas!!! I adore this book, as anyone who’s read more than two of my book tags can tell you, and I picked it up because I really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy.


Outlander by Dianna Gabaldon! I picked this book up because I’ve always liked historical fiction and Scotland was always on my list of places I wanted to visit so it was a no brainer from me!


Scythe by Neal Shusterman! This book was one that I bought based only on the blurb because of how interesting it sounded!


Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo! This book was one I just had to get because I love Leigh Bardugo’s writing style and when I heard about who the characters were I just knew it was going to be good!
