#NotAll Booktag

Book Tag

Hello! A tag today – I was tagged by The Orangutan Librarian back in December and my brain decided to put that information down into my subconscious for two months for some reason. So I’m posting today because it rose to the surface!

#notall cover changes – a cover change you liked

Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse, #1)Shadow and Bone (Shadow and Bone, #1)

I mean, I like the original too… and props for them for waiting ’til the series was actually finished before doing a new cover.

#notall adaptations – an adaptation you love more than the book

The Hobbit


#notall tropes – a trope you’ll never tire of seeing

I think I need to go with orangutan’s post and go with ‘bad’ characters that  have a soft spot. They’re neato

I feel like they would secretly love getting a hug.

#notall instalove – you instaloved this instacouple

…is it bad that I can’t think of one?

#notall love triangles – an example of love triangle done well

Rurouni Kenshin, Vol. 1: Meiji Swordsman Romantic Story (Rurouni Kenshin, #1)

I think the one in here is handled rather decently – this is not a romance manga by any means, so I think that’s why. All the character’s feelings are believable, and it doesn’t take the focus of the story at any point anyways. Gosh I need to reread this.

#notall parents – bookish parents that, you know, PARENT!

I feel like this is going to a be rather prominent answer

#notall villains – a villain you love

Siege and Storm (Grisha Verse, #2)

The Darkling, man. Be still my beating heart.

#notall chosen ones – a chosen one you can get behind

The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)

Going with Kip. And this is to say, that I’ve only read the first three books – there are two yet that I haven’t read. He might not be the chosen one, but don’t tell me that.

#notall hyped books – a book that lived up to the acclaim

The Martian

Love it

#notall *insert favourite genre* – a book you’re not keen on from your favourite genre

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2)

2 stars, man. This fantasy was no beuno.

#notall *insert least favourite genre* – a book you liked from a genre you don’t often read

The Giver (The Giver, #1)

Not typically a fan of middle grade. But! This one is pretty swell.

And that’s it! Happy reading!
