Spotify Book Tag | created by Book Hooked Nook
Earlier this year Sarah from Book Hooked Nook created the Spotify Book Tag that mixes your favourite Spotify playlists and books all in one.
I’m behind on blog hopping so I’ve just seen this and Sarah tagged me! I really liked this idea and promised to add it to my “to complete” list but aha, productivity has struck. So this’ll be much sooner than Sarah probably anticipates.
- Answer the 10 prompts

- Tag some friends to join in
Hit Rewind: A book you go back to again and again?
I don’t reread books very often as I usually find that they’ll loose their charm. However, this year I’m rereading the same book for the third time already. This third reading is to annotate it for Beth‘s travelling book project.
At a surprise to no one, I’m choosing Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Maria Griffin.
Romantic Ballads: A book that gives you all those fluttery feels?
This was definitely a tough choice. I’m going to pick a series that I felt very passionate about in my early teens and was determined to finish as I wanted to be sure my favourite characters got happy endings.
I’ll pick the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr
Release Radar: A new release book you are excited for?
There’s so many books I could pick for this but I’ll stick to a new realse I’ve bought recently and should prioritise.
Gumiho by Kat Cho won this space as I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. It’s a fantasy-romance with a heavy focus on Korean mythology, so why haven’t you bought it yet?
Discover Weekly: A book you haven’t read yet but want to discover?
The amount of books on my TBR make this a tough choice too. But the one I’m probably most excited to discover is Wilder Girls by Rory Powell.
There is nothing about this book that doesn’t scream me.
Alone Again: Your favourite book genre to read on your own?
I mean, I do most of my reading alone. But the answer for this is definitely one of my most loved, yet I don’t have many friends who’d agree with me. Horror!
Alternative: An indie book or author everyone should read?
Oh this is an easy answer; Tiana Warner! It’s always going to be Tiana.
If you’re in need of a great mermaid trilogy the Mermaids of Eriana Kwai. It’s f/f, has a huge focus on dismantling the patriarchy, and wanting freedom and acceptance between races.
If you need something a litte more action and super-hero packed then Aries 181 is for you.
Cheesy Hits: A Book full of cheese that you just love?
I guess this is kind of like a guilty pleasure? In which case I’ll fall back to my regular answer: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.
Summer Hits: A book you re-read every summer?
As mentioned in an earlier answer, I don’t re-read. So I won’t repeat myself with this years favourite book.
Power Hour: An emporing feminsit book or character you adore?
I definitely have to pick Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand. This is the book I wish I’d had during high school.
All Out 10s: List ten banging books!
To make sure this is a thorough list I’ll only include books that I’ve written reviews for, that way you can see why I think they’re banging.
- 10. Pilu of the Woods by Mai K. Mguyen
- 09. Silver & Bone by Claudia Cain
- 08. Sheets by Brenna Thummler
- 07. The Migration by Helen Marshall
- 06. We Sold Our Souls by Grady Hendrix
- 05. A Thousand Beginnings and Endings by Ellen Oh and Elsie Chapman
- 04. Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand
- 03. Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
- 02. The Shadowglass by Rin Chupeco
- 01. Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Maria Griffin
I think we can call that a wrap! I should really do more of these tags as I love revisiting all the books I’ve loved.
