A LIBRARY BOOK
Jess – I have three right now. Cress, Seafire, and The Daughter of the Siren Queen.
Teagan – I’m a horrible librarian and I can’t be trusted to return library books and therefore I’m ashamed to say I don’t use the library.
A BOOK I GOT AS A GIFT
Jess – Circe by Madeline Miller. Teagan actually got me this one when I was going through some stuff and I loved it!
Teagan – Jess just got me the cool spine box collection of The Mortal Instruments and I’m obsessed.
A CHILDHOOD BOOK
Jess – I have a really old edition of Children of the Clouds that my mom used to read to us when I was little.
Teagan – My copy of Ella Enchanted is forever my favorite.
A MAGICAL BOOK
Jess – I have a ton of magical books, but I am going to go with Roar by Cora Carmack because it was the book that surprised me the most this year.
Teagan – Strange the Dreamer is *the best*
A ROMANTIC BOOK
Jess – A Court of Mist and Fury is pretty damn romantic. *swoons
Teagan – The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon.
A STEAMY BOOK
Jess – I recently read The Kiss Quotient and it had some pretty good steam…
Teagan – A Court of Mist and Fury the inn and cabin scenes. *fans self*
AN OLD BOOK
Jess – I have a 1949 gorgeous copy of Wuthering Heights that my husband got me for my birthday. It has an illustrated cover and I stare at it an absurd amount.
Teagan – I don’t have many old books besides my mom’s copies of the Nancy Drew series from the 60s.
A BOOK THAT MAKES ME HAPPY/LAUGH
Jess – If you need a laugh, read Let’s Pretend this Never Happened, by Jenny Lawson.
Teagan – Queen of Shadows makes me happy and laugh at how plotty Aelin is.
A BOOK THAT MADE ME EMOTIONAL
Jess – This year? So many books… Most recently Kingdom of Ash and for perspective Strange the Dreamer broke me too.
Teagan – I cried so hard during Kingdom of Ash
A BOOK WITH AN ENDING I DISLIKE
Jess – I always say Allegiant, so I will also throw out A Court of Wings and Ruin.
Teagan – I loved Muse of Nightmares overall but the ending felt too perfect for me.
A BOOK I WISH HAD ILLUSTRATIONS
Jess – I know I just used it, but Strange the Dreamer and Muse of Nightmares because for the life of me I cannot picture the Citadel!
Teagan – Okay, Jess is right Strange the Dreamer needs illustrations… But also, The Night Circus would BE AMAZING WITH ILLUSTRATIONS (yes caps locks were necessary.)
A BOOK OR GENRE I LOVE TO READ WHEN IT’S RAINING
Jess – hmmm. I think I just like fantasy the majority of the time. I would pick a moody book for rain, regardless of genre
Teagan – I don’t really read anything different depending on the weather so I guess it’s usually fantasy!
As always, no obligation on tags EVER! Just have fun.
