The Birthday Book Tag

It’s my birthday today! I’ve been looking forward to it for a while, and all the shops are starting to open up again, which is pretty great timing. I’ve got my fingers crossed that next year will run a bit smoother than this one…

I first saw this tag at The Perks Of Being A Nerd and I thought it looked really fun. So here goes!


Birthday Cake

A Book With A Plot Twist That Seems Cliche But You Love it Anyway

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

You can probably guess what happens in this book just by the cover – but I love it anyway! This whole series always makes me smile.

Your Most Anticipated Book Release Of This Year

Harrow The Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

The sequel to Gideon the Ninth is released on the 4th August and is probably one of the birthday presents I’m most looking forward to! I only recently read the first book, but I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to see how Gideon and Harrow’s relationship progresses… now that Gideon is… inside Harrow’s brain?

Happy Music

A Book With Some Beautiful And Truly Memorable Quotes

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Leigh Bardugo’s characters always have the best lines. Hands down, she writes the best dialogue I’ve ever read. And whilst this book wasn’t really filled with moving, coming of age quotes, there’s a serious amount of sassy bad-assery in it. Which works for me!

The Happy Birthday Song

A Book That Deserved All The Hype It Got

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Originally, I only bought Good Omens to watch the show (I couldn’t bear the thought of reading a book after watching it). However, it was hilarious – and I thought the adaptation was one of the best I’ve ever seen.

Birthday Presents

A Book That Surprised You With How Much You Loved It

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

I randomly picked up The Starless Sea. It was my first read by this author, and I definitely want to try more of her books! I loved her style and the whole world she created was just amazing. And of course, who can argue with that cover?

Getting Older

A book that you read a long time ago, but you think you’d appreciate more if you read it as a more mature reader

Noughts & Crosses: Book 1 (Part1 of Noughts & Crosses Trilogy ...

Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman

I read this book 4 years ago and wasn’t the biggest fan of it. But looking back, I’m not sure I totally understood all of the themes and I want to reread it soon, especially as it contains a lot of really relevant issues.

Sweet Birthday Memories

A book that kept you incredibly happy during a sad or demanding period of your life

Simon vs The Homo Sapien’s Agenda

This book deserves to be reread and reread and reread. IT’S SO AMAZING (That’s it, that’s all I need to say.).

That was the birthday tag! I really enjoyed doing it – when’s your birthday?

Published by Hundreds&Thousands

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.
