I was tagged by the lovely Shannon @ Clockwork Bibliophile. Make sure you check out her post! I can’t believe I left this sitting in my drafts for a month. I remember the days of struggling not to post a book tag that same day that I had been tagged.
But in celebration of the recent release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I fished the tag out of my drafts, updated my answers and here it is.
Flagrate: Writing Charm
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
I liked A Thousand Pieces of You but I just did not like the characters at all so if I had the power to, I would rewrite them.
Alohomora: Unlocking Charm
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I know this series was very hit or miss but I absolutely loved The Selection (and the rest of the series!). It actually got me out of a reading slump so maybe there’s some bias.
Accio: Summoning Charm
A book that you wish you could have right now
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
I still haven’t bought TRK because they don’t have the US edition in paperback and I’m too picky to have a mismatched set 😭
Avada Kedavra: The Killing Curse
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I think this book speaks for itself to be honest.
Confundo: Confusing Charm
The Dream Engine by Leah Karloff
I spent a lot of this book wondering how or when I’d gone from one scene to another and just generally confused about a lot of things that were happening.
Expecto Patronum: Patronus Charm
Your spirit animal book
I’m skipping this one because spirit animals aren’t part of my spiritual tradition and it’s not my place to use the term.
Sectumsempra: Dark Charm
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Maybe not twisted but I found The Young Elites very dark for a YA novel. Dark in a good way though!
Aparecium: Revealing Charm
Golden Son by Pierce Brown
After finding Red Rising an okay read, I was thoroughly surprised to find myself really enjoying Golden Son, although I found that it was slow in the first half.
And because this tag has been around for months now, I’m certain that absolutely everyone has done it but if you haven’t, then I’m tagging you to do it!
