The Pantaloon - A book set in a different time period
"You have learned
way too soon;
you should never trust the pantaloon."
This book takes place during Blackbeard's teen years, so the late 1600's. It's a really fantastic imagining of what caused the infamous Blackbeard to be so dang swashbuckly.
Addict With A Pen - A series you wish had more books
"I'm only at it again as an addict with a pen."
This was such an easy pick for me, because Vampire Academy is my favorite series of all time, and I don't think there could ever be too many books in this series. I know that there is a spin-off, but it's not the same. I want to read about Rose and Dimitri and Christian Ozera. I think that there could be a whole other series about what it's like for Rose to be the Queen's guardian.
Ride - A book that took you a long time to finish
"I'm falling, so I'm taking my time on my ride."
I just finished this book recently, and it took me over 2 weeks to read. I kept putting it aside for days at a time, and oftentimes when I would pick it up, I'd only read a few pages before putting it back down. I ultimately enjoyed it, but it was a slow go for me.
House of Gold - A book with gold on the cover
"She asked me, 'Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?'
I will make you queen of everything you see,
I'll put you on the map,
I'll cure you of disease."
This is a little off topic, but I didn't realize how much I love pairing this song with this book until I was prowling my Goodreads shelves for a book with gold on the cover. While this song sounds like it would be happy, it's actually about wishing for a good life, wishing you could have what you want, but being smart enough to realize that's not how life works. I just realized how fitting it is.
Tear In My Heart - A book that has a really great romance
"She's the tear in my heart, I'm alive,
She's the tear in my heart, I'm on fire,
She's the tear in my heart, Take me higher,
Than I've ever been."
Y'all, I adore this book with every fiber of my being. I loved watching Echo and Noah's relationship grow from dislike to a deep, life-altering love. Their chemistry just burns through the pages, and they help each other grow and face their demons.
Ode To Sleep - A book that you stayed up all night reading
"I'll stay awake,
'Cause the dark's not taking prisoners tonight."
This book started off kinda slow, but I became so sucked into the characters and the writing that I couldn't put it down!
Fake You Out - A book with an ending you didn't see coming
"And I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna"
This is still one of my favorite books ever, and I think that has a lot to do with the ending. I never could have seen that coming,and it turned me into an emotional wreck when I finished the novel.
Not Today - A book you keep putting off reading
"Heard you say, 'not today,'
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a sound,
Heard your voice, 'there's no choice,'
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a noise."
So I bought this book and got really excited about reading it. I started reading it a few days ago and was pretty into it, but for some reason I just keep putting off reading any more of it, and I don't even know why.
