Christmas Song Book Tag


Hello people! Two days until Christmas!!!! So, it’s time for another book tag, this time Becca @Shih Tzu Book Reviews tagged me for the Christmas Song Book Tag.

“You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch” 

Name a villainous character you couldn’t help but love.

I want to say someone in Red Queen, but that would be the motherload of spoilery, so I’m settling with Warner from the Shatter Me series :D.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” 

Which book do you most hope to find under your Christmas 

Oh, so many! I’ll say one I’m sure will be under the Christmas tree (because I put it there) and I’m pretty excited about it, and that’s Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.

“Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer”

Name a character that overcomes major obstacles and learns to believe in themselves.

I’m going with Madeline from Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. She overcomes something truly major and she learns some very important stuff in that process.

“Santa Claus is Coming To Town”

A character at the top of the naughty list/ a character at the top of the nice list.

On top of my nice list will go Cress from Cress by Marissa Meyer, because let’s face it: Cress is the cutest character ever!

Celaena/Aelin from the Throne of Glass series goes to the top of my naughty list, because of everything she unashamedly and amazingly does throughout the 5 books that are out.

“Frosty The Snowman”

A book which just melts your heart.

I’ll step away from my usual answers and say Whatever It Takes by L.E. Bross, because this book totally melted my heart. Ryan and Tess are pretty amazing and their story is beyond cute and heart melting.

“Feliz Navidad”

A book that takes place somewhere other than your home country.

Ehehe, all books take place somewhere else besides my country :D. Your Voice Is All I Hear by Leah Scheier is set in the USA. 🙂

“It’s The Most Wonderful Time of Year”

Which holiday themed book do you use to spread Christmas joy?

I don’t really have a themed book I use to spread Christmas joy, so I’ll just use a book that is set during Christmas season, and that is Landline by Rainbow Rowell.

“Sleigh Ride”

Which fictional character would you choose to spend the holidays with? (Doesn’t have to be a love interest.)

I would like to spend it with Asher from The Girl’s Got Secrets (Forbidden Men #7) by Linda Kage. First of all, the guy is just awesome, and second, he would really appreciate all the “normal” family stuff because he’s never had it before and he so deserved it.

“Baby It’s Cold Outside”

Which book that you didn’t like would you sacrifice to a fire to keep yourself warm?

This question is a bit of a sacrilege, because no book ever should ever be burned… BUT The Rock Star’s Secret Baby by Zara Keane (if I had it in physical form, which I don’t!). I gave this book ZERO stars, so yeah…

“Do You Hear What I Hear?”

Which book do you think everyone should read?

I feel like a broken record here, but please read Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. It’s so damn great!!!

There, done! I tag EVERYONE!!! If you haven’t done this one yet, hurry and do it!

The Girl’s Got Secrets (Linda Kage)


Here’s the same old “girl posing as a boy” story but with a rock-n-roll twist.

Remy Curran dreams of one day being in a band, except the group she wants to join refuses to hire a girl drummer. So, she auditions as a guy…and makes the cut.

Becoming “Sticks,” a member of Non-Castrato, isn’t quite what she dreamed it would be, though. She spends most of her time keeping up the subterfuge and learning how to walk, talk, act, and drink like a man.

But what’s even harder to deal with is acting oblivious when the band’s heartthrob lead singer, Asher Hart, treats her like one of the guys and not a woman. She never imagined he’d be so much more than a pretty face with a nice voice. But he’s better than perfect. He’s perfect for her.

When love and lies combine, Remy must keep up the act or lose everything. But who knew lying to reach one dream could prevent you from attaining an even bigger dream?

Ohhh, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I started this book, but I loved it. The story is much more complex than I originally thought and the characters are so damn great and funny.

I did like the writing, but I found the amount of spanish terms in Remy’s chapters a little bit distracting, though I totally got them and found that it made a lot of sense. Also, because I actually speak spanish, I didn’t lost the meaning of any of it.

I loved the characters, LOVED THEM. First of, and one thing that majorly sets this book apart from other NA romances I’ve read recently, is how neither of the main characters are looking for a fling. Asher is looking for the real deal, while Remy just doesn’t actually knows that she’s even ready to start looking. The buildup and the development of their friendship was super awesome, and I did like how comfortable Asher was with the male version of Remy. Whether it was small moments like the guys playing Call of Duty, os Asher sharing some stuff of his life, it was pretty obvious how perfect they were for each other.

I also really liked all of the other characters of the Forbidden Night Club, and now I want to get my hands on the 6 other books from the series, because their stories seemed so interesting.

My only small problem with this book was how some parts dragged on a bit, but nothing majorly. And I did appreciate the epilogue ;). I would highly recommend this book, the relationships are great and the dialogue and situations are funny as hell. Also, Asher is just the cutest thing ever.
