Book Tag | 2020

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.

Rules:

  • Link back to the original creator, Phoenix @Books With Wings
  • Thank the person who tagged you
  • Answer all the questions 
  • Tag at least 4 people
  • 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.

  1. Thanks so much for doing my tag! I loved reading your answers! Ha ha, yeah it is true that every single character in a YA book makes a bad decision…oh well, at least you have a lot to choose one!
    Clarification for the second question: it could have ended well too (unlike 2020 ha ha), it was just a book that you liked from the beginning, it had a good start. But I think that books that go downhill afterwards are better for this prompt!
    Great post!
