A Basic Staple For Any Reader

I agree with Beth that there isn’t such thing as one basic staple. All readers have different tastes and nothing can please everyone. But one book I always recommend to everybody, no matter what they like to read, is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This book is written beautifully and tells such a heartbreaking and good story.

What Books Do You Own Multiple Copies Of?

 I actually am not one of those readers that buys multiple copies of a book because it’s my favorite(s) or has a new cover. I prefer to save my money to buy new books*. But the only books I have multiple copies of are The Starbound Trilogy. I originally bought them in eBook form, but then a couple years later I decided they are too pretty not to have in physical form, so I bought them in hardcover and #noregrets

*Hahahahahaha I’m cheating the system

A Book With A Beautiful Cover

Hmmmm, there are so SO many! One of my favorites is the cover of The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. I love all the colors and how it makes sue of negative space.

Two Characters That Work Well Together Even If They Aren’t Together

I love Nina and Inej from Six of Crows together. There friendship was one of the most heartwarming parts of the books, and I love how they support each other. Also, these two girls are #deadly together and I would be terrified if they wanted to kill me.

I also love Blue and Ronan from The Raven Cycle, specifically from Blue Lily, Lily Blue. I feel like the two of them get each other on a deeper level than the others. Even though they are at odds with each other most of the time, when they work together, they really work.

Ooh and lastly Finn and Sofia from The Starbound Trilogy. Their friendship is so genuine and the “no questions asked” type. Even though we don’t get to see them in action together a ton, what we do see and what their flashbacks show is that they work well together.

What Book Would You Like to Destroy?

Taking Chances by Molly McAdams. This is the only book I think I actively hate. The entire plot is a love triangle ! And the girl chooses THE WRONG one ! And the author completely takes the easy way out by KILLING ONE OF THE LOVE INTERESTS (the better one btw)*

*Sorry not sorry for spoiling this…I’m just hoping you all have better taste than me and never read this book.

What Complete Series Do You Own?

Basically all the series I own are complete series, and if not, I’m most likely working towards completing them. I’m just going to name my not complete series because that’s a lot quicker.

  • The Wolves of Mercy Falls- I thought I had the complete series until i found out that Maggie wrote a FOURTH book about Cole *insert heart eyes here* and I haven’t yet bought it.
  • The Raven Cycle- BUT DO NOT FRET. Because I have ordered The Raven King and is is coming sometime in September which is SO SOON and then you will all have to deal with my fangirling/sobbing because IT WILL BE OVER AND CAN I HANDLE THAT?
  • The Lunar Chronicles- AGH I really want to complete this series! Only two (four?) more books to go!
  • The Firebird Trilogy- So this might be one series I’m not planning on completing…oops? I really don’t like Marguerite BUT the second book left off at a cliffhanger and idk if I can handle not knowing the end for the rest of my days.

That’s actually a lot of series I don’t own the complete set of but I promise you, I DO ACTUALLY OWN COMPLETE SERIES. And a lot of them!

Show Us Your Desk/Stationary That You Own For Each Question

Soooo….of course this is the one time I’m not writing my blog posts at my desk in my room, but rather downstairs. And I am just wayyyyy too lazy to walk upstairs and take a picture of my desk. But I am including this question so if I tag you and you’re a less sucky person than me you can take a picture of your stationary!

    Love this! Thank you for tagging me 🙂 The little asterisks side note made me laugh so hard at the beginning. I’ve been meaning to read Six of Crows; I constantly hear absolutely amazing things about it! Hopefully, I’ll finish this soon! 🙂

    Great tag, I agree with so many of your answers! The Book Thief is definitely a book I recommend everyone read and I love, love Inej and Nina! I love both of Maggie Sitevater’s series that you have mentioned (I second your Cole heart eyes!) and I hope you enjoy The Raven King! 🙂

    Oh I love stationary as well,…but I love books more. AND FRIENDS I LOVE THIS SHOW. ❤
    I really love the covers of the starbound trilogy! I haven't read it but it's a series that's been recommended to me lately, and…well, I'm super curious 🙂
    Blue and Ronan are such an interesting pairing – I would have never thought about them but… it's a good choice, actually 😀
    Great answers! 🙂

    I love your answers for this tag Sydney, I definitely agree with you on so many as well.
    I think if there was one book that everyone should read it’s definitely The Book Thief, and if that doesn’t make it a staple then I don’t know what is. 🙂 Also oh if we’re counting ebook copies and physical copies I guess I could say I own more than one copy of every single book I have on my bookshelves. 😀
    I definitely won’t be reading Taking Chances, never gonna be a fan of love triangles, and every single one of your picks for the glue prompt is a pair of characters I highly, 100% agree with! 😀
    Again great picks for this tag. 🙂 ❤

      Thank you!
      I don’t think I can ever say how much I love The Book Thief on this blog. It comes up somehow in every single tag because it’s just so amazing! And ohh, I don’t own any double physical copies I don’t think? It was only recently that I started switching over from ebooks to physical books so I don’t have any of those different editions of books or collectors items types.
      Please DONT read Taking Chances, I actually threw my kindle in a fit of anger reading it. It is just not enjoyeable.
      And yay, I’m glad! That was a fun question because it’s something I don’t usually think about but I live for good friendships.
      Thank YOU so much for tagging me! It was a ton of fun! ❤️

        That’s all right! 😀
        No me neither, and there are some books that just do come up in every tag, that’s how you can tell they’re favourites. 🙂
        For now, pretty soon I imagine you’ll have an epic book collection. It always starts off small but there’s something addictive about buying books.
        Definitely won’t in that case, my Kindle is too valuable to me to throw across the room.
        That’s all right, I’m really glad you had a lot of fun with this tag! 😀 ❤

    I love stationery, too! In fact, I own far more stationery than I need considering I don’t have that many people to write to…

    I totally agree with Anne of Green Gable! That book seems even more delightful every time I read it!

      Haha I don’t think I ever write to people except for thank you notes! I have a ton of pens and markers and highlighters though anyway and love looking at pretty papers and all that.

      Ahhh I need to do a big classics reread where I read books like Anne of Green Gables again and Little Women.

    PERCY JACKSON ❤❤ And Nina and Inej!!! Oh my gosh those two are FIERCE and I love them so much. Also I haven’t read The Book Thief yet?? *hides* BUT I WILL.

      I LOVE PERCY JACKSON OMG. Nina and Inej are honestly the best they could be having a joking conversation in the middle of a battle to the death and I love it. YOU MUST READ THE BOOK THIEF. It is probably the saddest book I’ve ever read but I love it so so so much and it’s so worth it. ❤️❤️

    Oh love seeing TLC here! I love that series so much T_T I also want to try almost every one of the books mentioned in this, and seeing that you loved TLC I’m hopeful they’re just as awesome 🙂
    Wonderful tag! I’m a sucker for school/office supplies myself, especially when they’re super cute ❤ ❤

        OH MY GOD YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO!!! Scarlet was still my favorite but those two were just so cute too! I thought Winter was especially great as a conclusion to such a lovely series ❤
        Ah, that's great! And yeah, I used to hate the stress of back to school shopping, but I did love getting new stuff at the same time 🙂
        I still buy tons of office supplies, though most of them are really unnecessary and I rarely use them hahaha

    Thanks for tagging me! I love The Raven Cycle and The Wolves of Mercy Fall and The Lunar Chronicles! I also read the Firebird trilogy but it wasn’t amazing. The covers are though! I really love those so I would have bought the final book even if it weren’t really good 😂
