A Spring Book Tag!

Hello, epic readers!

Spring is upon us! Lots of green, flowers, and rebirth! With that, I have a book tag here just for the season. Inspired not only by spring but other book tags, I swung this one together. I love sharing books I’ve read and/or will be reading and I think this is a fun way to do it. It’s thematic, reflecting, and also anticipating. An all-in-one!

So let’s get to tagging!

1. A leafy book!

The Hazel Wood

Author: Melissa Albert

Scarlet Reader

Goodreads

I guess I kind of stretched this one. It’s more of one that’s got the twists of branches more than leaves. Still, pretty curious and I’m still debating on whether I should read this book or not. Dark fairytales that may or may not be real. Mom is stolen into the Hazel Wood, where these tales come from and now begins the journey to go get her.


2. A flowery book!

Beastly

Author: Alex Flinn

Scarlet Reader

Goodreads

A modern-day twist on Beauty and the Beast. Definitely a read I would recommend for those who enjoy the fairytales. The cruel and popular boy gets turned into the beast and only has so long before his curse is permanent.


3. A green book!

The Tommyknockers

Author: Stephen King

Scarlet Reader

Goodreads

People of Haven are all but selling their souls for deadly, and nearly alien, rewards. It’s turning the town into something out of this world and it all started when Bobbi Anderson stumbled across something metal, strange, and mysterious in the woods. Now it’s taking over her hometown.


4. A book you’re excited to read this spring!

After

Author: Anna Todd

Scarlet Reader

Amazon

I’m pretty stoked to read this book! The movie trailer turned me on to it and it’s been a little while since I’ve read a steamy, knot-twisting, toe-curling romance. I’ve heard from a few readers that this one is pretty good! Stubborn girl meets an intense, mysterious guy and there are no sparks. It’s straight up fire between them.


5. A new release you’d recommend to others!

Wicked Saints

Author: Emily A. Duncan

Scarlet Reader

Goodreads

A war that’s gone on forever, an unorthodox group comes together. A girl who converses with the gods, a prince with trust issues, and a boy with a barely containable secret. Amid a forbidden romance, they must assassinate their king. Will it end the war or cause more devastation to their world?

I haven’t read this yet, but the description is amazing and totally alluring. I’m very excited to read it. So much so my fingers are tingling. I’m ignoring reviews so that I can’t be swayed one way or the other.


6. A book beautiful on the inside and a book with a beautiful cover!

The Life and Death of Charlie St. Cloud

Author: Ben Sherwood

Scarlet Reader

Goodreads

This book was so incredibly moving and beautiful. I believe it’s so underrated and highly recommend reading if you haven’t. Haunting, yet charming, this story about a man still struggling years after losing his brother in a car accident was unforgettable. Every day at sunset he goes to see the spirit of his brother at sunset to play catch with him. Then suddenly, he meets Tess and he may begin to see the light that could help him move on.

Ink and Bone

Author: Rachel Caine

Scarlet Reader

Amazon

This book cover has to be one of my utmost favorites. If a book cover can come across as wise and magical, it’s right here. I was so drawn to this for how it represented the way the vivid colors blended creating something bold and ancient. I can’t get enough of it. The books on the cover all worn and well-read and the way the title strike out at me…I’m so in love with it.


7. A book that changed you!

A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares

Author: Krystal Sutherland

The Scarlet Reader

Goodreads

Personally, A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares did a number on me. While a fun and compelling story with adventure and tragedy and MAJOR feels, it approaches mental illness in a unique light that I think can give people a glimpse at how it can be. That and how helpless feels to be both on the outside looking in and the inside looking out.


8. A book that inspired you!

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Author: Stephen King

Scarlet Reader

Amazon

While at times I find the King-man to be a little over the top, he has some top-notch writing and I learned so much from this memoir. One of those things was to calm the fuck down and stop freaking out because I’m going to find my groove. My groove will also get destroyed and I’ll find a better groove. I also don’t have to completely compromise my style and who I am. For any genre writer, I suggest this book. Inspiring on mass levels.


For this book tag, I’m tagging:
