Contemporary

The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares

The beginning of a YA fantasy series about four friends who share a pair of jeans one summer that magically fits them all. These books are so sweet and I love how strong the friendship is between the girls.

Book Tag Week: Types of Memes Book Tag

Book Tag Week!! 😀

And now I present the Types of Memes Book Tag. It was created by Icebreaker694. I would have included pics of the memes, but that’s too much to do and I’m feeling lazy so just pretend I included them, yah!

Grumpy Cat
A book you have negative feelings about

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Celaena Sardothien sucks. She’s not a great assassin at all! I’ve only read the first 2 books of this series and they were both average. Because of what the story promised – the protagonist being a badass assassin, – I was disappointed by it. The protagonist doesn’t reach that level.

Moon
A book that makes you hungry

Delicious! by Ruth Reichl

A contemporary novel about a young woman who moves to New York City to work at a food magazine. I read this one last year and though I liked it at first, I was annoyed by the time it ended. The only thing I consistently loved was the food mentioned. I still would like to try making the cake the protagonist is great at baking. A recipe for it is included in the book.

Book Tag Week: Pro-Wrestling Book Tag

It’s BOOK TAG WEEK y’all!!! 😀 😀

What’s Book Tag Week, you may or may not ask? It’s exactly as it sounds. It’s a week of only book tag posts on Zezee with Books.

I often do book tags on here but sometimes, when I’m stressed or out of ideas or out of book reviews or in a blogging slump or just feel like posting a bunch of book tags, I declare a Book Tag Week. I’m starting to think of it as a fun blogging holiday. Hmm… 🙂

There are no set dates for Book Tag Week. It pops up whenever the fancy takes me and may even last for more than a week because I feel like it should.

So, if you’re stressed, in a slump, bored, or just wanna post some book tags all week, you’re more than welcome to join in BOOK TAG WEEK with me! 😀

Well, I’m gonna kick it off with a bang. Here’s the….

3 Bookish Things Tag

It’s book tag time! 😀

I recently saw this over Kristin Kraves Books and immediately considered myself tagged and drafted up a post. Unfortunately, I was unable to find the creator of the tag, but whoever you are good idea!

3 read once and loved authors
Yaa Gyasi

Gyasi is a Ghanaian-American author. I fell in love with her writing as soon as I started reading Homegoing, a historical fiction novel about the experiences of 2 half-sisters who were born in 18th-century Ghana and their descendants. I love Gyasi’s prose, I love the structure of the novel, and I love how impactful the story is. I consider it a modern classic.

“The Other Boleyn Girl” by Philippa Gregory, narr. by Ruthie Henshall

The first time I read The Other Boleyn Girl was back in 2008. I was in college at the time and was going through a rough patch in a relationship. I felt as if the pace of the plot mirrored my feelings about my relationship: the ups and downs; the intensity in certain scenes; and the pressure the girls, Mary and Anne, felt to keep the king’s interest. It was a strain. It was a good read. I enjoyed it.

Genre:

Historical fiction

Pubbed:

2001

Goodreads summary:

Two sisters competing for the greatest prize: the love of a king.

A rich and compelling novel of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue, The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her heart.

When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of fourteen, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family’s ambitious plots as the king’s interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king and take her fate into her own hands. (Goodreads)

“The Shape of Water” by Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus, illus. James Jean

This is one of the best books I’ve read so far this year. I was ecstatic when I learned that this would be published. I watched the movie in December last year and loved it and didn’t expect to encounter the story in novel form. When I heard of the book, I wondered if it would be as great as the movie and immediately reserved it at my library. However, procuring a copy of the book proved difficult due to silly mishaps on my part.

I was granted access to my library’s e-copy, which I accidentally returned. ☹ I was so pissed at myself. Luckily, the physical copy was available at my library, so I borrowed that. But as soon as I started reading, I knew that this would be a book I’d love because I immediately fell for the prose, which is 50% of the reason why I love this book as much as I do. Because of that, I decided to get my own copy. I needed to be able to highlight all the words and phrases and passages that jumped out at me and I could only do so in my own book.
