Hello, and welcome back to another book tag. This time I’m doing The Book Courtship Tag, that has been around for a while. I was tagged by Travelling in My Bookcase, thank you so much. People, go check out her blog! The Book Courtship Tag which was originally created by LovelyLikeLaura.
Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?
I bought Love in the Time of Global Warming (Francesca Lia Block) 95% because of its gorgeous cover. Go on, have a look at it. Isn’t it just amazing? Unfortunately I had a few problem with the book itself, but the cover is just gorgeous.
Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary?
I bought The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion totally because of the summary!
Meet Don Tillman. Don is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman. One thing he already knows, though, is that it’s not Rosie. Absolutely, completely, definitely not.
Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?
Renee Ahdieh is a genius, and The Wrath and the Dawn has the most amazing writing.
If you haven’t read it yet, first of, how is it possible? And then, go and pick it up now!
Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?
Here I have to go with The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. When I read it I wasn’t as heavily into reading as I am right now, but City of Bones made me go out and get the next 2 books, and then the 3 others, and then The Infernal Devices… you get it, right?
Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?
I’ve been kept late a few times lately, but the last one was More Than Once by Elizabeth Briggs.
Lately I’ve been staying late to read on Fridays… and when I say late is “it’s almost morning” kind of late.
Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?
OMG, Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. BIGGEST BOOK HANGOVER EVER!!! Lol. I read this book in one night – so it could totally have fitted on the previous slot – and afterwards I could not stop thinking about it. I wanted more. I needed more Warner and Juliette. I would go back to open the book and read random chapters. I had a problem. I don’t have it now because the book is physically very far away from me.
Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?
I love running my hands through all my books… I might have a problem… 😛 Now, I’ll choose a very recent one: Cress by Marissa Meyer. I just love my book, and the embossing on the lettering. The Square Fish editions are just so gorgeous and I’m so glad that I decided to get these ones – even if now I have to wait one year for a physical copy of Winter.
Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?
I would like everyone to read Modern Romance: An Investigation by Aziz Ansari and Eric Klinenberg. I chose a non-fiction one on purpose, because I’m sure most of my family wouldn’t want to read fantasy… And this book is just amazing and it blew my mind. I think everyone should read it… and I mean: EVERYONE!
Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re read many times in the future?
Hmmm, so many… but… Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell… actually, I’m thinking that I might pick it up this month if I can get through all of my TBR on time 🙂 . Reading this one on Christmas time would be the most perfect thing.
Phase 10 – Share the love: Who do you tag?
I will tag… EVERYONE!!! This tag has been around for a long time, so you probably have done it already, but if you haven’t, and you want to, consider yourself tagged, yeah?!
