Hi book friends! Happy Saturday! Today we are doing the First Date book tag which we found at Hotshot Headlines but is originally from Thrice Read. Here we go!
The awkward first date – A book where something felt off. It wasn’t a bad book, but lacked that spark for you.
These Rebel Waves – This book could’ve been great. I mean who doesn’t love rebellious pirates? But this story was weirdly religious and just not our cup of tea.
The cheap first date – A book that turned out less than you expected.
Everless – This was a book that stood no chance of living up to the hype for us. Honestly, it kind of grossed us out too much to be great.
Well-prepared first date – A book that was better than expected.
Sky in the Deep – WOW. Talk about over-delivering. Packed full of action, humor, family and just the right amount of romance, this was one of our favorite reads of the year. And to think, I almost didn’t read it.
Hot but dumb – A pretty book, not so hot on the inside.
The Surface Breaks – We bought this one for the cover alone and because we were promised a feminist retelling of the Little Mermaid… But this story was too brutal and while we got the feminist message we would’ve preferred something more empowering and less soul crushing.
Blind date – A book you picked up not knowing anything about it.
A Promise of Fire – I loved the cover and said why not… AND I REGRET NOTHING. If you are looking for a new book boyfriend and heroine to swoon over, this is one blind date that will go right.
Speed dating – A book you read super fast.
Golden Son – I devoured this book in one sitting. It’s fast paced and who doesn’t love gladiator-esque space battles?!
The rebound – A book you read too soon after a book hangover and it kind of ruined the book for you.
Roomies – We came off of Strange the Dreamer and wanted a romance. Roomies just didn’t pan out and I”m not sure we gave it a fair shot.
Overly enthusiastic date – A book that felt like it was trying too hard.
The Heir – This one felt like a total money grab and I felt like Cass was trying too hard to make me like a spoiled rotten monster. You can’t follow up the cheesy wonderfulness of the original Selection trilogy with a monster and try and force me to like it. Nope.
The perfect first date – A book that did everything right for you.
Dance of Thieves – Perfect pacing, action, adventure, romance, this book has everything. And that cliffhanger! The Remnant Chronicles was put to shame with this new installment. Go forth now and make Mary your queen as well.
Humiliating first date – A book you’re embarrassed to admit you liked / embarrassed to see reading in public for whatever reason.
A Hunger Like No Other – Or any other romance book with a “romantic” cover that people will judge. Plus, the title of this one is cringe-y despite the book being really good.
…anyone that wants to do this one! We’d love to see anyone’s answers 🙂
