I was scrolling through the internet today, desperately hoping there was a Bonfire Night themed book tag, and I found one! No fireworks for me until Sunday, so what better way to spend a cold November night in with a good book? And what better way to celebrate than with a book tag?
This tag was created here if you want to check out the original!
Screamers: A book that made you want to scream (in a good or bad way!)
Definitely The Wicked King- Holly Black. I need the Queen of Nothing right now. I swear I wanted to scream for half of the series (in a good way, I think) and I know that will continue until the last page.
Bombers: A book that you read before it exploded in the book community
The Flatshare- Beth O’Leary. This book got really popular when it was released, and rightfully so. You should definitely read it. I got an ARC and finished the entire thing in one go, before immediately tweeting Beth O’Leary about how it broke me.
Banger: A banned book you read
I’m surprised by how many I’ve read in this category, but the least basic is probably Slaughterhouse Five- Kurt Vonnegut.
Peony: A book/author you think everyone needs to read
It wouldn’t be a Rarely in Reality blog post if I didn’t choose Warcross- Marie Lu. But also We Were Liars– E. Lockhart.
Crossette: A book/series with a complicated plot
I have three bookish art prints on my wall and I’ve managed to mention all of the books on them here, oops. An Ember in the Ashes- Sabaa Tahir is definitely complicated but so worth getting invested in.
Diadem: A book/series with an amazing set of central characters
One of Us is Lying- Karen McManus. I’m not entirely sure I even liked all of the characters in this book, but the split perspective made it so easy to get invested in every single one.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Bonfire Night!
