Hi lovely readers, I thought it about time I grace you with another book tag, this time in honour of Harry Potter. I was tagged by the lovely Jasmine @ How Useful It Is, who is “trying to be useful, one post at a time!” – that’s her catchphrase and I love it! Pop on over and give her blog a follow.
The Harry Potter Book Tag was created by Trang and Lashaan @ Bookidote and all the graphics on this tag belongs to them.
A BOOK YOU FOUND THE THEME INTERESTING, BUT YOU’D LIKE TO REWRITE IT.
Trust No One by Paul Cleave – I loved the idea of someone with Dementia writing a journal to their future self and I love the whole ‘book within a book’ concept, however, I thought the mystery was seriously lacking.
THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES THAT GOT YOU HOOKED.
The Girl in the Ice by Robert Brynza – the Detective Erika Fosters series is one of my favourite crime series, and I’m eagerly awaiting the next book. If you’re not familiar with this series, I highly recommending you start it!
A BOOK YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE RIGHT NOW.
What Lies Between Us by Nayomi Munaweera has been on my wish-list for the longest time but I’m waiting for it to drop lower in price (it’s currently £12.20 for the paperback & £20.71 for the hardback).
Ganga, a young girl, grows up carefree in the midst of her loving family in an old and beautiful house nestled in the idyllic hill country of Sri Lanka. Her childhood is like any other–until it isn’t. A cherished friendship is revealed to have monstrous undertones and the consequences of trauma spell both the end of her childhood and that of her stable home. Ostracized by their community in the wake of one terrible night, Ganga and her mother seek safety by immigrating to America.
In America Ganga must negotiate the challenges and thrills of an American teenage girlhood. She navigates immigrancy and thrives. She fulfills the American dream by graduating from college, moving to San Francisco and working as a nurse, yet beneath the surface the scars of her past continue to haunt her. When she meets Daniel, a handsome, charismatic man and falls deeply in love, it appears that she has found her happily ever after. Instead, the secrets continue to corrode and an accidental pregnancy causes the marriage to further unravel. She cannot resist an encroaching darkness, and she finally commits one terrible act.
From award-winning author Nayomi Munaweera comes What Lies Between Us, the confession of a woman, driven by the demons of her past to commit a single and possibly unforgivable crime.
A KILLER BOOK. BOTH SENSES. TAKE IT AS YOU LIKE.
A BOOK THAT YOU FOUND REALLY CONFUSING.
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski – I know I only touched the surface with this one, I believe this a book you read twice – the first time, to familiarise yourself with it, the second time, to understand it.
YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL BOOK.
The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis – I really have no idea what my spirit animal book is but I like wolves and this book has a great wolf in it and it’s a 5* book so I’m choosing it.
A DARK TWISTED BOOK.
A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU IN A GREAT WAY, REVEALS TO BE MORE THAN IT IS.
Dare to Remember by Susanna Beard – I wasn’t expecting to feel such a strong emotional connection; the chapters are quite long but there was no wasted words and my interest never wavered, not for a second.
and anyone else that would like to participate!
