The Spring Flowers Book Tag

Hello everybody! Today, since we are now well into spring (despite the deceptive weather), I’m going to be doing the Spring Flowers Book Tag. Onto the post!

Daffodil- A book about unrequited love

The Upside of Unrequited is about a girl experiencing love for the first time after many years of unrequited love. I don’t talk about it anywhere near as much as I do Simon Vs but I really love it as well.

Foxglove- A book you pretended to like

I can’t think of any! No point trying to lie.

Lilac- A book about a first love

This was unexpectedly hard to come up with! I think the aforementioned Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda would fit?

Hyacinth- A book with a sad ending

Ways to Live Forever has the saddest ending ever.

Peony- A book that made you feel embarrassed

Ooh I don’t know. I remember feeling embarrassed when I read Bras and Broomsticks because of the title, which everyone commented on.

Tulip- A book with the most beautiful declaration of love

Nick’s at the end of Geek Girl melts me every time.

Crocus- A book that made you laugh out loud

There are loads. The most recent one I can think of where I was laughing a LOT is A Girl Called Shameless!

Pansy- A book that challenged you to think about an important or heavy subject

The Boy at the Back of the Class is about a child trying to befriend the Syrian refugee who has just joined their class, and it’s thought provoking, moving and somehow incredibly funny all at once.

Daisy- A book about a strong female friendship

Beautiful Broken Things focuses almost solely on a female friendship! It’s great, and the friendships are super complex.

What are your thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? Do you have a favourite flower? I’d love to hear in the comments!

The I Should Have Read That Tag

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the I Should Have Read That tag, which was created by Beth and I found on Vicky’s blog. Onto the post!

A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read

Rachael tells me all the time that I need to read the Legend of Podkin One ‘Ear! I’ve owned it for ages, so she isn’t wrong tbf.

A book that’s been on your TBR for forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up

Ha, how long do you have? The list would be stupidly lengthy. So much so that I genuinely can’t pick just one…

A book in a series you’ve started but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet

I own all the Poppy Pym books I haven’t read yet, but have only read the first one. I’ve read other books by the author as well, just not those ones.

A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read

Ooh I’m not sure. Maybe the Wolves of Willoughby Chase? I’m sure I’ll read it one day, I’ve just never managed the several times I took it out of the library…

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

I don’t know- maybe Ink by Alice Broadway? It looks great, but also like it’s very much not my taste so I’ve deliberately given a miss despite everyone loving it/the sequels.

A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love but just haven’t read yet

Like I said in another post recently, I really liked the film of Dumplin’ but am yet to read the book.

A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet

I don’t really use Instagram for book recommendations, but a book that’s been on basically all my social media feeds recently is Rumblestar by Abi Elphinstone. Between that and how much I enjoyed prequel Everdark, which was a World Book Day book, I’m so excited to pick it up once it’s out!

I’m not going to tag 10 people, but I will tag Charlotte, Aimee and Sarah as I know they’ve all been looking for tags to do recently, and you reading if you’d like to do it!

What would your answers to these questions be? Do you have any thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? I’d love to hear in the comments!
