Hey everyone! So I’m back with another tag, this one from Mariella ! Sorry for taking so long, by the way. I forgot I had some other stuf...

Thoughtful Thursdays: The Courtship Book Tag

Hey everyone! So I’m back with another tag, this one from Mariella! Sorry for taking so long, by the way. I forgot I had some other stuff to do, but here’s to finally getting around to it!

And without further ado!


Disclaimer: I rarely buy books. I’m very conservative with my money, so if I can get a book at the library, I will. I only buy books if I know the author and am trying to support them, or if I’ve read some of the author’s other writing and trust them to not be a waste of my limited funds. All that to say, most of these will be books I picked up from the library rather than ones I actually bought.

Anywho. I’m seriously getting to the tag now.

Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book you bought because of the cover

Purchase Page

Technically, I haven’t even read this one yet. But this cover is awesome, and I need to find it.

Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book you got because of the summary

Purchase Page

I was looking for more mangas to read, found this one at the library, read the summary, and picked it up immediately. It’s a little cheesy, but tons of fun.

Here’s the summary by the way:

In the near future, the federal government creates a committee to rid society of books it deems unsuitable. The libraries vow to protect their collections, and with the help of local governments, form a military group to defend themselves--the Library Forces!

Iku Kasahara has dreamed of joining the Library Defense Force ever since one of its soldiers stepped in to protect her favorite book from being confiscated in a bookstore when she was younger. But now that she's finally a recruit, she's finding her dream job to be a bit of a nightmare. Especially since her hard-hearted drill instructor seems to have it in for her!

Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing

Purchase Page

Seriously, this book has some of the most engaging, enchanting writing I have ever had the pleasure of reading. You must find it. And read it. And love it.

Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pursue the rest of the series

Haha, since almost everything I read is part of a series, the answer to this question would be “almost every one I’ve ever read ever.” But, since it would take way too long to post all those pics, I’m just gonna go with this one.

Purchase Page

It’s different from what I normally read since it’s an exploration novel and Adult instead of YA, but it was still awesome, exciting, well-written, and best of all, clean.

Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night long

Because I have a weird, rigid sort of discipline, I have actually never experienced this. There’ve been books that I wanted to stay up all night reading, but knowing I’d be exhausted in the morning and unable to finish everything on my normal schedule kept me from actually doing it.

I think this one may have come close though:

Phase 6 – Always On My Mind: A book that you could not stop thinking about

I’ve actually had quite a few of these. But I’ll name my two favorites:

kanechronicles.wikia.com
Purchase Page

Majorly on that last one though. I read it four years ago, still think about it on a reasonably regular basis, and remember it better than almost any story I’ve ever read. And I only read it once. That’s how much this book stuck with me.

Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book in which you love the way it feels

I’m not entirely sure what is meant by this. Are you talking like physically, the way the book feels in my hands, or the writing itself? Maybe I’m missing the obvious, lol, but it feels like a weird question to me. :p Anyway, I’ll just name one for each.

Purchase Page

Yay, here’s one I actually bought! Or had my grandmother buy, but whatever. Specifically without the jacket cover, this book just has this really gorgeous, almost old feel. It’s wonderful.





And for my second interpretation of the question:

Purchase Page

This book, too, just might have the best writing I have ever read. It’s absolutely lovely.

Also



These are super awesome as well. I’m gonna move on now.

Phase 8 – Meeting the Parents: A book you would recommend to your friends and family

Um... like all the good ones? lol. Okay, let’s go with a loved one I haven’t named yet.



These books are boss. Read them now. They are hilarious, awesome, action-packed, and have some of the best characters ever.

Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you’ll re-read many times in the future

Purchase Page


These are some of the best dystopians ever, and I will most assuredly reread them at many points in my life.

Phase 10 – Share the love!!! Who would you like to tag?

I invite any reader who wants to do this tag to do it. Just leave your post in the comments so I can check it out and comment back. However I am particularly interested in reading what Rebecca and Kathryn, Ally, and Aimee have to say. So yeah, you four have no choice in the matter. TELL ME YOUR BOOK LOVES.

Anyways, what do you think of the books I mentioned? Have you read any of them? Leave comments below, lovelies!

  5. Ooh, Ranger's Apprentice and Lunar Chronicles are both amazing choices! I'm not sure if I'm going to read The Safe Lands Trilogy again, just because of the frustrations I had with some characters, but still, it was overall a good series and it's great that you liked it! Unfortunately, I do not know the rest of the books... Alas. Should they be on my TBR?
