Blog Update+ The Music Book Genre Tag!!!!

HEY EVERYONE. I haven’t posted on Sunday in bricks but I am back to posting on Sunday with a very! important! and! exciting! update! Previously I posted book reviews on Tuesdays, Miscellaneous on Thursdays, and Standalone Sunday on…well…Sunday. But after participating in Standalone Sunday for months, it’s time to bid that meme adieu. I instead am instituting a new schedule! Book reviews are still on Tuesdays, but now it is Discussions on Thursdays*, and Tags on Sunday. At least until I catch up on all my tags. Then I’ll reconvene. SO WELCOME TO OUR FIRST TAG SUNDAY**

*Hopefully I’m creative enough to come up with a new discussion topic EACH WEEK…bloggers with your magical discussion powers halp

**I kinda wanna come up with cuter names than “Tag Sunday” but the creativity gods have not blessed me today so Tag Sunday it shall be for right now.

And which tag is the lucky first participant in Tag Sunday????? None other than The Music Book Genre Tag. Thank you so so so much to the wonderful Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews. Her blog is amazing and if you don’t already follow her I highly recommend you begin.  This tag was created by the wonderful Moira over at For the Lover of Books.

Celtic Punk: Favorite Obscure Book/ A Book with a Non-Western Setting

The Bright Effect by Autumn Doughton and Erica Cope

WHY HAS LITERALLY NOBODY READ THIS BOOK OR ANY BOOKS BY AUTUMN DOUGHTON. This book is beautifully written, has amazing characters, great friendships. and a really good romance. Plus the character development is top notch. And it is so incredibly relevant in one certain way that I can’t spoil and also is just generally heartbreaking.

Classical: Favorite Classic/Book that Should Become a Classic

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

thirteen reasons why

So I feel like for a book to be a classic it needs to 1.) Be beautifully written and 2.) Talk about something relevant to today’s society. Thirteen Reasons Why is gorgeous and simple, and sadly suicide is a very relevant issue in today’s society. This book says something, and I think future generations could benefit from reading this book.

Soul/RnB: A Powerful Book

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas


My other contender for a book that should be a classic. Everyone has already heard how important and powerful this book is, so I won’t say it again. But read it.

Rock and Roll: An Action Packed Book

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristof


Ugh sorry to steal your answers AGAIN Mandy but Illuminae is just the perfect choice! Literally the only thing* I could think as I was reading this book was how twisty this plot was like I just couldn’t keep up!

*This is a LIE, I was thinking so much my emotions were ALL OVER the place

Pop: A Book with a Pretty Cover that You Lost Interest In

The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how gorgeous this cover is????? And then I  will burst your bubble by telling you I really really REALLY disliked the story. It was cheesy and confusing and the characters were not good. I think I gave this ONE star which is really rare on here.

    Ah, I agree with so many of these books! I still have yet to finish 13 Reasons Why! 🙈 I started reading it after I finished the show because I wanted to see if they were different or the same AND NEVER CONTINUED. I suck. 😂 But I do love the show! Haha, I’ve heard terrible things about The Infinite Moment Of Us, and I’ve flipped through the pages in the bookstore and just cringed. It looks so bad. 😝

      13 Reasons Why is kinda different but kinda similar to the show! The book focuses more on just Clay and less on everyone else’s reactions, so I felt like it was more personal. ugh I was so excited for the Infinite Moment of Us because THE COVER IS SO PRETTY but it was so cringeyyyyy.

    Great answers for this tag! I can’t WAIT FOR YOU TO READ CRESS – it’s one of my favorites. Well, they’re all my favorites, but this series just gets better and better ❤ Illuminae was SO twisted and crazy, I'm still not over it hahahaha. Well, I'm still not over Gemina, because it's even crazier. 😛

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Cress was my absolute favorite of the series, so I can’t wait to see what you think about it. Cress is so adorableeeeeeeeee. *patiently waiting now Sydney* I was trying to come up a cool name for your Tag Sundays, and there literally isn’t a cool name that I could think of. WHICH IS DISAPPOINTING. Your answers were so much fun, though, Sydney, and fantastic post as usual! ❤
