As I love Ariana Grande and her Positions album, I decided to do the Positions Book Tag, created by Rachel from Let Me in the Library. The original video can be found here.
shut up – a book you couldn’t shut up about
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. Did I recommend this to everyone I speak to? Most probably! It’s just so beautiful and one of my favorite books.
34+35 – a book that you stayed up to finish
The Alice Equation by Davina Stone. I was SO invested in this book! I wanted to finish it ASAP so I did stay up late to do that.
motive – a book that left you questioning everything
The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Jos Pierce. This book… so deep. It left me thinking about life for quite some time.
just like magic – a book with all your favorite tropes
The Alice Equation – Davina Stone. Again! Fake relationship trope, friends to lovers trope: yes!
off the table – a book that raised your standards
The Giver of Stars – Jojo Moyes. After reading this book I was honestly mesmerized… I haven’t read such a great historical fiction book since the day I finished this one.
six thirty – a problematic book you love anyway
I don’t think there’s a problematic book I particularly like…
safety net – a book you immediately knew was a 5 star read
The Midnight Library – Matt Haig. Oop, mentioning this one again! But when I read the synopsis of The Midnight Library, I knew I was going to LOVE this one.
my hair – a well-known author whose work you haven’t touched but are interested in
Yaa Gyasi. I’m really excited to read Transcendent Kingdom soon!
nasty – a new release you can’t wait to read
Heartstopper: Volume Four – Alice Oseman. In January 2021, I finally finished the third volume in the Heartstopper series and now I just can’t wait for volume four!
west side – your favorite series
The Divergent Series – Veronica Roth. I bet this is one of the only series I have finished up to this day, oop. But it was a series that made me fall in love with reading even more, so it has a special place in my heart!
love language – a comfort book you keep returning to
One Day in December – Josie Silver. I absolutely adore this beautiful book! Although this is quite cliché, it’s a book I can dream away with!
positions – a book that subverted a cliché
Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies – Scarlett Curtis. Such an informative book and a lot of the essays subvert the clichés about feminists!
obvious – a book you loved from a genre you don’t normally read
A Thousand Pieces of You – Claudia Gray. I saw this book on Instagram probably 5 years ago and I always thought it wouldn’t be for me. However, I did read it in April 2020 and I absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to read book 3 in the series.
POV – a book you’d love to see told from a different point of view
Thinking about this question, I realised I read quite a lot of books written from different points of view… So I will just leave this one open.
I absolutely loved doing this tag!
