Book Tag | How I Choose My Books Tag

Hey everyone! I am back with another tag- The How I Choose My Books Tag. I was tagged to do this by the wonderful Madeline @The Bookish Mutant. Do check her blog out for some awesome bookish content!

The tag was originally created by thebookishunderdog.

Let’s get started!

1. Find a book on your bookshelves with a blue cover. What made you want to pick up this book?

So, I pick Shadow and Bone for this one. I had heard a lot of things about it, both good and bad. Plus, it has like a 4 star rating on Goodreads, and I enjoyed Six of Crows, and I wanted to read more of the Grishaverse…. so well. I haven’t read it yet, but I am excited too!

2. Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy, but did. Why did you read it in the first place?

I didn’t expect to enjoy Turtles All the Way Down as much as I did. I have read all books by John Green, and while The Fault in Our Stars, even though overhyped, is a masterpiece, I didn’t like many of his other books. But I loved Turtles All the Way Down!

3. Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick a book at random. How did you discover this book?

I ended up picking Winter, but since it is the fourth book of The Lunar Chronicles, I am just going to talk the entire series.
The story about me picking it isn’t all that interesting. I had always wanted to pick this book up, since a lot of my friends, and many people on the blogosphere have raved about it. And one day, I did. And the rest is history.

4. Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you. What did you think of it?

Ah, I don’t read books that people recommend to me generally, but a friend of mine recommended Elephants Can Remember by Agatha Christie, and I remember thinking it was good, but not the best novel by Christie.

5. Pick a book that you discovered through booktube/bookstagram/book blogs. Did it live up to the hype?

A book I bought that I discovered through Goodreads and WordPress both, is The Midnight Library. And yes, it did live up to the hype, it’s amazing!

6. Find a book on your shelves with a one-word title. What drew you to this book?

The book I pick for this is Fangirl. It was actually the first YA novel I ever read! I just wanted to try the genre- I guess I was in 7th or 8th grade. or maybe 9th. And something about the blurb just stood out to me, and I ended up reading and loving it!

  1. Shadow and bone in my opinion is very predictable. I hope you like it though. It’s not bad…it’s just….it’s like except for the world nothing is new. It felt like a lot of other ya tropes stuffed in a story. You will know when you read. Great answers though! And I can’t want to read midnight library.

  2. I finally feel as though I’ve settled down enough to start reading and writing again so I think this tag seems like a great way to start posting again!
    I loved your answers, I haven’t read the majority of these books but I might have to give some a try! 🙂

  3. I can’t wait to read the Lunar Chronicles, but I keep forgetting about them whenever the library is open enough to let people in. I’m just itching to read it!! Thanks for the tag, Riddhi! I’m really excited to do this one!

  4. I also loved Turtles All The Way Down way more than The Fault in Our Stars! It’s not one of my absolute favorites, but I agree that it’s a great book 😊 Also, I’m very pumped for your Grisha trilogy thoughts!
