Yes, yes today is my birthday and that is why I decided to do this tag. I was wondering which tag to do for this blog post and since it’s my birthday I thought to look up some birthday themed tags. I found this tag over on The Bibliophile Girl’s blog who found it on Bionic Book Worm’s blog. The original creator of this book tag is Antonia by Always Books. I tried searching for her blog so I can link it for you guys to check it out but was unable to find it. So without any more delays, let’s hop in to the tag.
Birthday Cake: A book with a plot that seems cliche but you adore it anyway
For this question I’ll go with In My Dreams I Hold a Knife by Ashley Winstead simply because I was unable to tear my eyes from the pages and read the book way past the night. You guys should really give this book a shot. It’s going to hook you from the first page and won’t let go until the end.
Party Guests: Your most anticipated book release this year
I don’t normally have anticipated book releases but if I have to pick I’d go with the House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas. This is book 2 in the Crescent City series. I loved the first book and I’m glad the second book is out though I have yet to read it.
Birthday Presents: A book that surprised you with how much you loved it
For this prompt I’m choosing Insanity by Cameron Jace. I knew what I was getting into but I was still surprised how much I really enjoyed this book and the sequel. There are more books in the series which I intend to read in the future, but this was a beautiful surprise.
The Happy Birthday Song: A book that certainly deserved all the hype it got
This was a little tricky for me since I kind of live in my own timeline and don’t really follow trends. But I decided to go with One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus. The mystery, the plot twist and the suspense is all so worth it. Everyone should read this book once in their life.
Happy Music: A book with some very beautiful and truly memorable quotes
This is a pretty simple and a cliche one but I’d go with The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho for this prompt. He is an amazing author and this book is a best seller in the world. Not to mention that this book contains lots of fantastic quotes that one can use in his or her daily life.
Getting Older: A book that you read a long time ago, but you think that you would appreciate it more if you read it as a more mature reader
This is an easy one. For this prompt I’m choosing The Power Of Now: A Guide To Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle. My father got this book to read but he never read it. And me being an eleven year old bookworm decided to read this book because I had nothing else to read, and I’m going to be honest I did not understand a single word in the book. So I think if I give this book a shot now, when I’m a lot older, I’ll be able to understand it and appreciate it better.
Sweet Birthday Memories: A book that kept you incredibly happy during a sad or demanding period of your life
There are a lot of books that can fit this prompt but I decided to go with Wandering Star by Romina Russell. This is book 2 in the Zodiac series and follows the story of the twelve zodiac signs. I enjoyed book 1 and this book just added on to the excitement and adventure of the first book.
So there you have it. The Birthday Book Tag. I tag everyone who wants to do this tag, and all those interested in books, and if it’s your birthday, then happy birthday to you.
