I was super excited to see Sara @ The Bibliophagist created this tag! Given that I’m low-key obsessed, I couldn’t resist. I even got my ME! long-sleeved shirt and signed single a couple weeks ago.

I Forgot That You Existed: A book from your childhood that you don’t remember anything about
Where the Red Fern Grows – Wilson Rawls
I remember reading this together as a class in fourth grade, but I literally don’t remember anything except there are dogs.
Cruel Summer: The worst book you’ve read this summer
The Last One – Tawdra Kandle
It’s not that this was a bad book… it just wasn’t very memorable. I vaguely remember that the story felt a little forced and awkward in the end. It wrapped up really fast compared to the rest of the story, so the pacing felt wrong.
Lover: A bookish relationship that’s perfect exactly the way it is
Malec = Magnus Bane + Alec Lightwood
Did anyone actually expect a different answer? I love Malec with all my heart. No one will ever beat them.
The Red Scrolls of Magic
The Man: A book with a badass female main character
Harper from A Curse So Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer
The Archer: A book with great character development
Juliette and Warner from Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi
The character development in the Shatter Me series is the best I think I’ve ever seen. I have loved seeing them grow and be amazing. I’m so sad the series is ending, but I’m also so excited for the next book!
I Think He Knows: Your fictional crush
Rhys from A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Maas
Rhysand is the absolute best. If you haven’t read the series, do it. Now.
Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince: A book set in high school
Listen to Your Heart – Kasie West
I mainly read YA and I’ve been on a contemporary kick lately, so there were a lot to choose from. However, Kasie West was my summer obsession, so I have to go with one of hers, and I loved Listen to Your Heart. It was adorable!
Paper Rings: A book with a happy ending
Dating Nashville – Ann Maree Craven & Michelle MacQueen
My favorite song on the soundtrack gets my favorite book of the summer. This book was so amazing and that ending… perfect!
Cornelia Street: A setting you’ll never forget
Adaptive – Becky Moynihan
Becky has done such an incredible job creating the dystopian world in The Elite Trials trilogy. It’s so unique, while still being imaginable. I love it!
Death by a Thousand Cuts: A book that broke your heart
Empire of Storms – Sarah J. Maas
This isn’t surprising. If you been following for a while, you know this book always wins the broken heart categories in tags. It DESTROYED me.
London Boy: A setting that plays a big role in the story
Aerion – Lela Grayce
This whole book is about four elemental kingdoms in the magical world of Gaai. The different places play a huge part in the story and the characters’ abilities.
Soon You’ll Get Better: A book that made you cry
A Court of Wings and Ruin – Sarah J. Maas
I’ve literally never cried so hard in my life. At least not over fictional characters. I couldn’t see to continue reading, I could barely breathe. It was awful. 10/10 would recommend!
False God: A book with a well-written sexy scene
Ignite Me – Tahereh Mafi
WHAT?! That’s right, changing things up and not saying A Court of Mist and Fury! I figured I should limit my SJM answers. Besides, Ignite Me is right up there with it in my opinion. Hmm I just realized both have a LOT of similarities… enemies-to-lovers, guy who doesn’t think he deserves happiness, a table… 😂😂😂
You Need to Calm Down: A book featuring an LGBT romance
Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston
I haven’t talked about Alex and Henry in a minute… I miss them.
Afterglow: A great second chance romance
The Man, the Myth, the Nerd – Maggie Dallen
Oh, I just finished this one and have to include it! It’s out now, so check it out!
ME!: Your all-time favorite book
City of Bones – Cassandra Clare
It’s not technically my favorite book, but it’s the beginning of my favorite series. It’s a huge reason why I’m an avid reader today. In the last decade, I’ve read it 8 times!
It’s Nice to Have a Friend: Your favorite friends-to-lovers book
On the Fence – Kasie West
As I said, the Kasie West obsession was real this summer. On the Fence is probably my favorite, though. It was precious.
Daylight: A book with a positive message
The F Word (Now titled Dating My Best Friend) – Michelle MacQueen & Ann Maree Craven
This book could have been for the last song too, but I wanted to have a different book for each. It’s. So. Perfect. I love this book for so many reasons, and it being friends-to-lovers is just one of them. There is also such a powerful message in loving yourself. The whole trilogy is just wonderful.
