Thank you Whispering Stories for tagging me! I am honestly awed by the amount of tags you do, keep it up! Whenever I try to do book tags, I always try to do different books and sometimes I struggle with that, so kudos for you.

- At the bottom, talk about some other books you read in 2020! (this isn’t required, just suggested!)
Please note: Just because this is a book tag about 2020, the books you talk about do not have to have been read by you in 2020.
PART ONE: BEGINNING OF THE YEAR
A book you were really excited for.
Royals of Arbon Academy series by Jaymin Eve and Tate James
I was pretty excited about this series for 2020. If you like fantasy with a pretty badass heroine, I recommend.
A book that started out really well.
The Promise of Us (Sanctuary Sound #2) by Jamie Beck
I am assuming this means started out well, but didn’t not end well. Typically, if I don’t like a book, I am pretty quick to DNF it, but with this book, I really just kept hoping it was going to get better and it never did.
PART TWO: THE WORLD GOES ON HOLD
A book that had an unexpected plot twist.
Ivory White by Cambria Hebert
This was a cute, modern retelling of Snow White. I enjoyed it as a fairly quick, light read and had quite the plot twist towards the end.
A book where you felt like nothing happened.
The Brightest Night (Origin #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I just did a review of this book, and I mention, while it was a nicely written book, the entire thing was basically just a set up for the next book.
A book where two main characters were separated.
Everything Under the Sun by Jessica Redmerski
This book is probably the most emotional rollercoaster ride of a book I have ever read and spoiler alert, the two main characters end up separated. Please hurry with book 2!
PART THREE: THE WORLD TRIES TO REOPEN (AND BEGINS A SECOND WAVE OF THE PANDEMIC)
A book in which the characters made a bad decision.
I agree with Riddhi here, literally EVERY SINGLE YA book. I suppose if I had to narrow it down, it would be just about any character from the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer lol.
A book with an impatient/overly eager character.
I’m sure if I really thought about it I could come up with another, but I agree with Riddhi again and will say Hermione from Harry Potter. To quote Ron, “she’s got to sort out her priorities,” lol.
PART FOUR: THE WORLD ADJUSTS (SORT OF)
A book in which the character’s goals change midway.
The Shadow Between Us by Tricia Levenseller
The main character literally does a whole 180. This was the first audiobook I ever listened too and I admit I am not a fan of them. But they are great for keeping you focused on long road trips.
PART FIVE: THE END & LOOKING FORWARDS
A book whose sequel you really anticipated/are anticipating.
Dominion of the Ash series by Frost Kay
So far, there have been 3 books released and I can’t wait for the next one. Please write faster lol.
A book whose sequel was better than the original.
The Coven: Fae Magic series by Chandelle LaVaun.
This series still has a long way to go and it is a branch off of an even larger series but The Rogue Witch (#2) was way better than The Cursed Witch (#1). Reviews are linked.
A book you read just to finish it (didn’t like it but wanted to finish anyway).
Rejected (Shadow Beast Shifter #1) by Jaymin Eve.
This book was AWFUL and glorified and romanticized violence and bullying. I really have no idea why I finished it because I hated it from the beginning. Maybe so I felt complete writing an awful review for it lol.
