The Recommendations Book Tag

Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

I was tagged to do this tag by Hundreds and Thousands of Books about an year ago (yikes!), and I am so sorry for getting to it so late! They did an amazing themed version of the tag, where they recommended some great pride books!

The tag was created by Ally @Ally Writes Things.


  • Tag Ally @ Ally Writes Things so I can see your recommendations!
  • Give at least one recommendation for each of the prompts below
  • If you don’t have a recommendation, talk about a book you want to read
  • Tag as many people as you want!

Let’s get into it!

1. A book about friendship

I think the perfect fit for this prompt would be Loveless, because while it’s about discovering your identity, it’s also about friendship.

2. A fast-paced book

I pick Behind Closed Doors, because it’s such a good, fast-paced novel!

3. A diverse romance

You Should See Me in a Crown doesn’t exactly fit in this prompt, since it’s more of a coming of age book, but it does have a diverse romance, so I guess it counts?

4. An underrated memoir

I haven’t read a single memoir in my entire life (As far as I can remember). Wait, no, I have for school- My Father’s Zoo by Esther David. It was nice, nothing spectacular.

5. A nonfiction other than a memoir

Who Killed Shastri? by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, is such a good non-fiction novel- every Indian should read it.

6. A book with fewer than 10,000 ratings on Goodreads

The Words We Keep by Erin Stewart just has 441 ratings on Goodreads, which is so sad, because it’s such a good book!

7. A book with an LGBTQ+ protagonist

I pick Beauty and the Besharam for this one, it’s got a bisexual protagonist.

8. A book with more than 500 pages

Kingdom of Ash is definitely more than 500 pages!

A translated book


I haven’t read one.


9. Book you want everyone to read

The Places I’ve Cried in Public!!!

10. A short story collection

Throwback to when I was a kid and just read short stories collections by Enid Blyton!

11. A book by a trans or non-binary author

I pick The Best Liars in Riverview by Lin Thompson who is a trans author.

I tag:

  1. Lauren @Narrative Paradise
  2. Yolanda @Past Midnight
  3. Kori @Writer Girls Book Review
  4. YOU!

And that’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Let me know in the comments which book would you recommend to me!

    1. I know right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Ooh, how are you liking it?
      Also, you should check out The Spinster Club Trilogy out next!
      And she’s also releasing a new book this year!!


      Oh the joy when someone reads your favourite books and enjoys them!


  2. I agree with both loveless and you should see me in a crown- they fit the prompts well. Beauty and the Besharam is so high on my tbr, I can’t wait to get to it ahhh with a name like that how can i resist? I hadn’t really heard of who killed shastri and the places I’ve cried in public, but I’ll check both of them out!! And omg- Enid Blyton books make me so nostalgic; I think she was my most read author in childhood besides the geronimo stilton one haha. I loved her boarding school series like Mallory Towers more than her short stories collection though.
    Loved reading this <33

    1. Yes!
      Ooh, it’s a nice book- disappointed me a little, but prolly because I had colossal expectations for it!
      You should, they’re amazing novels!
      Ah, I haven’t read the entire Mallory Towers :(((
      Thanks Janhavi!


  3. Thank you so much for giving it a go, brilliant post!! All the places I cried in public absolutely wrecked me (it’s so sad!) but I really love Holly Bourne’s other books. And don’t worry about it being so long, my pile of tags to do is well over a year old 😬

    1. Thanks for the tag!
