The weather in the Netherlands is absolutely dreary. So, I decided to create a spring book tag to cheer myself up. And of course for everyone else in need of some cheering up.
A book about unrequited love
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton en Jodi Meadows. The unrequited love is more of a subplot. King Edward is in love with his childhood friend Lady Jane. However she only sees him as her best friend. It sounds sad, but this books has a happily ever after, even for king Edward.
A book you pretended to like
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I really wanted to love this book but I actually didn’t like it at all. However, when talking about this book I say I liked so-so.
A book about a first love
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. The romance in this book is beautiful and innocent. A bittersweet first love, as it often is.
A book with a sad ending
Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I wouldn’t call the ending bad, but it isn’t a happily ever after either. The ending fitted the story, so I was satisfied. Still, it didn’t give me a super happy feeling.
A book that made you feel embarrassed
Blank Spaces by Cass Lennox. I was reading this book in the train. It had some pretty hot scenes. My cheeks grew hot and I was afraid everyone could see what I was reading. Probably not really. But still. I felt pretty uncomfortable
A book with the most beautiful declaration of love
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. When Rhys and Feyre finally confessed, it was super romantic and made my heart pound.
A book that made you laugh out loud
Waste of Space by Gina Damico. I’m currently reading this book and I have to say it’s really funny. Gina Damico’s writing style is witty and sarcastic. She makes fun of relevant topics and her use of stereotypes is comical and almost grotesque, making the story interesting instead of boring.
A book that challenged you to think about an important or heavy subject
Hold Back the Stars by Katie Kahn. This book encouraged me the think about the functioning of our society, but also about individualism.
A book about a strong female friendship
The Alchemists of Loom by Elisa Kova. The friendship between Ari and Florence is strong and based on mutual respect. Theirs is a friendship that will last forever.
