1989 Book Tag!

Ahhh, guys! Charnell at Reviews from a Bookworm has created this awesome tag all about the music from Taylor Swift's 1989 album. I had so much fun answering all of the questions! For those of you reading this who are interested in doing the tag, I TAG YOU.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
4327066I read this book so long ago! I think it was even before the movie came out. I don't own the book with that cover, but I really want to because it's way prettier than the movie edition in green that I own. Anyways, I chose this book for Patrick, because let's be honest, he was one character you'll never forget.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Literally, as soon as this book ended I threw a fit. I didn't see the ending coming at all and it hurt so bad! I almost cried at the end and that's saying a lot, because I most definitely am not a crier.

Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts
The cover for this book was so gorgeous and I was immediately drawn in. However, I didn't much enjoy the book.

This is too hard sooooo.......

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This will forever be a book that I'll love.

The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse
12987192I read this one years ago and I loved it so much! It was the first book to come to mind when I thought of vivid worldbuilding. This is definitely a series worth checking out if you're even the least bit interested.
Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
I had heard such great things about this book, and when I finished reading it, I knew why. NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS. Be careful of which characters you love!

Arclight by Josin L. McQuien
I had been looking forward to this one so badly, but when I finally read it, I was just so letdown. It wasn't anything like I thought it'd be at all.

I'm going to be honest here. I read Divergent and I was pretty let down by it. I mean, I still love the series, but the first time I read this book I didn't like it much! However, I love book two.

23361053Don't Ever Change by M. Beth Bloom
I read this book last week and I loved it so much! It instantly became a new favorite, but I've been seeing many negative reviews on it lately, so I guess this one counts, yeah?

This book literally opened me up to the dystopian genre. I'll be forever grateful.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I literally want to read this book so bad. I want the release date to be here already!

Pandemonium (Delirium, #2)
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
JULIAN. I liked him at first, but ended up hating him by the end because I'm team Alex.

I will never forgive you for what you did Suzanne Collins. NEVAHHHHH!

The Here and Now by Ann Brashares
Like the prompt says, this was a bit too predictable, but also it was hard to get over some of the choices that the main character made.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I really wish that there were more books after this one! 

This series was literally perfect, and of course, the couple ends up happy. :)

172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
This book was so creepy and mind-bending. If you think that outer space is cool and awesome, think again!

Bomb by Sarah Mussi
I was loving this one at first but then it seemed neverending the more that I read it.

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
This book was basically the only book that the whole world was reading for a short while. I hate being stereotypical!

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer & The Retribution of Mara Dyer 
I loved these two books, but the wait for book three was forever! I've kind of forgotten what's happened.

The Death Cure by James Dashner
I like to pretend this didn't happen. I like to pretend that a lot of trilogy endings didn't happen.


  1. Oooooh, I love how you have set yours out! It's soooo pretty! The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a great choice for the first question, I adored Patrick and he's still one of my favourite characters. We Were Liars got me right in the feels too, that book broke my poor little heart but I loved it. I really loved the Tumble & Fall cover too, but I ended up not getting the book because I had seen some really bad reviews - kind of glad I avoided it now. I love that epic hair gif, it most definitely is epic!

    I should have put The Great Gatsby!!! I loved that book when I read it, which surprised me as I don't read very many classics but I just loved that one so much. I'm the opposite when it comes to Divergent, I enjoyed book one, disliked book two and then completely hated book three.

    The Hunger Games is a series I will always love too!!! :) It got me into dystopian and I have not looked back since and it's still my favourite genre. That will always sit on my favourites shelf on my bookcase. And completely agree about Suzanne Collins... WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT TO ME?!?!? *CRIES*

    Thanks so much for taking part in the tag! I loved your answers and the way you set yours up!!! :) :) :)

    Am now following you on GFC and Bloglovin' and will be sure to stop by more often! :)

  2. I love this tag!!!! I will never forgive Suzanne Collins either, for sure. I also love how you used gifs and everything, it made this so fun to read :) Oh my god the wait between the second and third mara dyers.... i still havent read the third one because i can't remember anything from the first two. it sucks. Illuminae looks so awesome, I wish i could have it now too! I think i might do this tag soon, it looks like so much fun!! :)

  3. Oooo, loving the graphics there! I have to agree with Twilight - everyone was reading it back when the movies just came out. I think I abandoned The Maze Runner trilogy and a bunch of other series....

    I'll agree with 172 hours on the moon - that was just soo creepy and I didn't even see it coming (until it smacked me upside the head)!

  4. OMG I LOVE THIS POST SO MUCH!!!! It's amazing! It also looks like a lot of fun! I definitely agree with you about Every Last Word! I can't seem to fangirl enough over that book lol. And Omg the Mara Dyer one is sooo true!! That's why I hate waiting soo long for books to come out. Great post!!

    I nominated you for the creative blogger award

  5. Gosh, this post is sooo pretty! I love how you've done. I'm totes jealous. I suck at making posts and designing lol. I haven't read the Hunger Games books, but I've seen the movies and now I'm scared out of my mine to see the last part. WHO DIES? Why is everyone not forgiving Suzanne Collins? Grrr, I hate when authors kill off main characters and I hope it's not the case in the Hunger Games.

  6. I still haven't read the second book to Mara Dyer. Is it worth it? I've heard 172 hours on the moon is super creepy. I hope I enjoy it if I ever read it. It seems like a lot of people don't like Divergent now. . .

  7. Ooo... This is cool. And so much fun! The Finnick part cracked me up. And yes, that was very cruel of Ms. Collins. ;)

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. Okay deleting my last comment because that's so cruel to spoil what happens in Mockingjay... I can't even think about it! That's one of the reasons why I refuse to reread that series... and kind of dreading watching Mockingjay Part 2...

    I'm actually kind of with you on the Divergent trilogy. I really liked the first book but then the next two were okay but not entirely great you know? The movies are really good so far though!

  10. Taylor Swift is the best.
    This tag is kind of perfect. I love how the questions go so perfectly and there are even lyrics to match. And the graphics you created for each song with the lyrics and the question. BEAUTIFUL.
    I really like your answers. But, gosh, that GIF of Finnick and Katniss. I'm definitely with you on that one.
    And I seriously want Illuminae right now. I just know it'll be amazing.
    I haven't read Perks yet, but I really want to soon. I've heard so many good things and it seems like a pretty short read.

  11. Love the images you've made for the headers of each thing. Wish I could make something that good haha. I keep thinking what would I put for that answer and then you whack something in there that's totally perfect that it's immediately what I want to put haha. I feel like with Twilight, at the time I wouldn't have cared if people saw me reading it, but I definitely would now. I have my copies hidden behind other books haha. I kind of don't want to let them go because they got me into YA but at the same time I have no intention of ever re-reading them... I have that cover of Perks and it's so pretty but I wasn't really a fan of the book unfortunately!

  12. What a great book tag. I love your responses. I'm going to have to go away and think about what I would have selected.

  13. Perks was a good pick. Love Patrick. I avoided We Were Liars after all the crazy hype last year. For good or for bad, the hype just turned me off. The Forsaken! You’re the one other person I know that has read that one. I’m not sure why it doesn’t get more attention. I really struggled with the major insta-love but the world building was truly awesome. OMG, Finnick. I have no words. I have yet to read Just One Day (and the rest). Need to change that soon.

  14. I LOVED LOVED THIS TAG! It seems like you took a looong time doing it and I truly appreciate that :'), you're an amazing blogger! One of my current faves honestly..

    Anyways, I totally agree with you on Perks and THG! I'm also TEAM ALEX FOREVER & I dislike Julian!♥

    PS, I'm currently reading We Were Liars and I don't know if I could finish it, ENCOURAGE ME PLEASE hahaha

  15. This was so much fun, I'm glad I saw it here, Krystianna! You and I have Divergent & Illuminae in common...though I hated Insurgent, sorry! ;-) You've chosen so many great books...and so many that I still have to read! Argh! The TBR pile is never ending, I tell you. I haven't actually read Requiem yet, but big yes to Julian. How I hated him. Team Alex forever. I was so mad reading Pandemonium, haha! I've put off Requiem because Julian being in the picture worries tell me, Krystianna, as a fellow Julian hater, should I read Requiem? ;-)


Hello there! (: Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one!
