The Taylor Swift Book Tag: 1989 Edition #1

So on both the blogs and on booktube, I have seen the 1989 Taylor Swift tag doing the rounds after the album came out last year. Being a massive fan of Taylor Swift's music I thought that I would do the tag. I haven't been tagged by anyone but it looked fun. This tag was created by Sarah-Jane at the Booklife and you can find it here. So let's get started...

1. Shake it Off - 'The haters gonna hate hate hate' - Which book criticisms do you shake off regardless of what people think?

Take Back the Skies (Take Back the Skies, #1)Take Back The Skies by Lucy Saxon- this book currently has a 3.39 star rating on goodreads and has a lot of DNF'ed statuses  but I am really enjoying it. Although when I started to read it I didn't find it amazing as it progresses I am enjoying it even more and to me it's going to be a 4 star book. 

2. I Know Places - 'Loose lips sink ships all the damn time' - Which ship do you set your heart on, only to watch it sink?

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)
The Maze Runner series-Thomas and Teresa- Although there is no direct fact that they are together in the books, I did like them as a couple especially with the telepathy as it made them have a connection but all doesn't go to plan... 

3. Wonderland - 'We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it' - Which fictional character would you like to take with you to another land?

The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)The Iron Fey series- Puck- I love Puck and he is one of my favourite characters in this series. I feel like he knows enough about fantasy worlds that I feel he would be able to guide me and help me. He also has a great personality. 

4. Wildest Dreams - 'He’s so bad but he does it so well' - Which character do you love, not in spite of his darkness but because of his darkness?

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)If you saw my Top 5 Wednesday post then you will know that I dislike likable villains but I do like Warner from Shatter Me to an extent and he is quite dark which does make him quite likable. 

5. Out of The Woods - 'When you started crying baby I did too' -Name a time you cried with a fictional character.

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief-Liesel- This is one of my favourite books of all time and the end of the book is a heartbreaker and I was definitely crying with Liesel inside as a book has never made me cry. 

6. Clean - 'The drought was the very worst' - Which anticipated book release felt/feels like the longest wait ever?

The Iron Warrior (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #3)The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa- I read the second book in this series last year and I have been waiting for this series for what seems like a lifetime and I can't wait for this to come out.  

7. Bad Blood - 'Band aids don’t fix bullet holes' - Pick a book that gave you the most painful of feels.

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault In Our Stars by John Green- I don't think I need to explain this one...

8. Blank Space - 'Lets be friends, I’m dying to see how this one ends' -Which final book in a trilogy or series were you most nervous about reading?

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins- It's safe to I was "dying to see how this one ends" and to be honest I don't know if I was that disappointed in the ending to this series but it did have some flaws. 

9. Style - 'Cos we never go out of style' -Which three authors writing styles do you love?

Severed Heads, Broken HeartsRobyn Schneider- I love her writing it is simple but I love the way that she incorporates references that her readers will understand like the Harry Potter references in her books and social media. 

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Tahereh Mafi- I love her writing, enough said...

Paper TownsJohn Green- It's John Green! To me, I love his writing, yes his plots can sometimes be repetitive but I do really love his writing. The way that he writes his characters makes me relate to them. I just love it okay. As if I didn't say it enough...

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way.

The Bus Stop: A Short Story

It was a silent night at the bus stop. Everything was quiet, eerily quiet for a Friday night. Too quiet. With that the night was broken. A boy was walking towards the bus stop, with his friend who was talking loudly. Beer bottle in hand, it was clear that the pre-drinking that been in fall force. The boy’s friend was yelling that the boy had broken up with his girlfriend earlier that night. “Forget Alice man. Drown your sorrows in drink. Tonight, you will be a man. A free man.” He said, slurring his words as he spoke, walking towards the road rather than on the pavement. Being scared for his safety, the boy was unsuccessfully trying to get his friend out of the pavement. Attempting successfully, the boy said to his friend, “I think we need to get you home.” The boy himself was not drunk, he had so wanted to be, but he thought that he was going out for a film night with his girlfriend, but this didn’t happen, instead the breakup did. One text later and his girlfriend was gone.
