Book Courtship Tag

Quite some time ago I was tagged by Josie from Josie’s Book Corner. Thank you and sorry it took me so long! Because when I say ‘quite some time ago’ I mean like a year woops. Fun fact: I had already started this post, but then forgot or something? I don’t know what happened. Anyway don’t forget to check out her amazing blog!

Phase One: Initial Attraction: A book you bought because of the cover

*laughs maniacally as she looks at all the pretty books on her shelves*

I mean, the cover is the first thing you see, so of course a lot of books’ covers drew me in. BUT! I do not buy a book solely because of it’s cover. I grab something because of the cover, then if the blurb sounds good, I’ll buy it.

a thousand nights

Sadly, though it sounded good, it wasn’t.

Phase Two: First Impressions: A book you got because of the summary

Pretty much every book ever haha.

Phase Three: Sweet Talk: A book with great writing

Thankfully I know quite a few for this category, but I’ll go with The Book Thief, because it is one of my favourite stand-alones (second favourite after The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and it’s beautifully written. Sadly I have the movie cover so it’s not that pretty…

ONE DAY I’LL OWN A PRETTY EDITION.

Phase Four: First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pursue the rest of the series

Oh gosh so many boooks. Actually not that many. Of course I could go with the expected answer that is Harry Potter, but let’s go with Percy Jackson. I immediately bought the rest of the series when I finished The Lightning Thief.

Phase Five: Late night phone calls: A book that kept you up all night long

Definitely The Ask and the Answer. Not all night long though. I never stay awake that long haha.

Phase Six: Always on my mind: A book that you could not stop thinking about

carry on

I couldn’t stop thinking about Carry On for a while after I finished it. I was just so high on Snowbaz feels.

Phase Seven: Getting Physical: A book in which you love the way it feels

Oooh again every book ever. I just love the way books feel and I always pet them.

Phase Eight:  Meeting the Parents: A book in which you would recommend to your friends and family

I was going to say Harry Potter, but then I saw the next question. I’m going to go with The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is my favourite standalone. I’d honestly throw this book at everyone if I didn’t have a no-throwing-books-policy.

Phase Nine: Thinking about the future: A book or series that you know you’ll re-read many times in the future

Does it surprise anyone when I say Harry Potter

Phase Ten: Share the love! Here’s who I am tagging

Don’t feel obligated to do this!

What book did you recently purchase because of it’s cover? And which one would you throw at everyone you ever met? Let me know in the comments!

    • Haha if I do throw a book it will probably be out of frustration with the book haha. Nope! I know a lot of people like to read before they go to sleep because they’ll get sleepy (like my mom) but I just get more adrenaline 😂 Unless it’s really boring book of course, but even then I don’t fall asleep while reading. You?

  1. I love this!! So funny (and predictable with all the HP). I have the ~pretty~ version of The Book Thief cover and OMG IT IS BEAUTIFUL – YOU NEED IT IN YOUR LIFE. It is probably one of my favourote stand alones too tbh. And the film is great. Sad, but great.

  2. I have the movie version of Perks too!! WHICH IS SAd. I mean, it’s not an awful cover so at least there’s that. xD But I want a really super pretty edition. I hope they actually reprint it at some point with a new epic design. :’) I would throw it at everyone too BUT YA KNOW. MSUT BE KIND. *gently slaps it in everyone’s faces*
    AHH CARRY ON IS JUST AMAZING. ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ROWELL BOOKS FOR SURE. <3

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  3. I love how I’ve started writing the post and haven’t even commented to thank you for the tag yet, oops. Anyway, I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower! It’s definitely one of my favorites as well! (Not sure I feel about the movie though…I honestly saw it because of Emma Watson and my curiosity of her portrayal of Sam.)

    Thanks for the tag! I’ll have this up soon (hopefully Friday, fingers crossed)!

  4. OMG CARRY ON WAS SO GOOD. I literally wrote a blog post inspired by it explaining why I started blogging…. Yeah. I actually just got my copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower from the library! I’ve heard so much about it and I can’t wait to read it. The prettiest cover of The Book Thief is definitely the anniversary edition! I bought it for Nikki and OH MY GOSH IT IS GORGEOUS. BEYOND GORGEOUS.

      • YES AND NOW I WANT TO REREAD IT.
        I hope so too! Everyone always tells me I need to read it but apparently it’s “mature”. I think I can handle it though… I did read ACOMAF haha.
        I LOVED IT SO MUCH I SWEAR I ALMOST CRIED WHEN I REALIZED I COULDN’T KEEP IT AND DIDN’T HAVE THE MONEY TO GET MYSELF ONE. IT WAS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL.

      • SAAAAME. I’ve wanted to reread it ever since I finished but I still haven’t (it’s been over half a year haha). Haha it’s a bit mature, but if you’ve read ACOTAR (I don’t know how mature ACOMAF is, is it more mature than ACOTAR?) then you can definitely read The Perks.
        OH MY GOSH THAT IS SO SAD BUT IT’S SO SWEET THAT YOU GAVE IT TO NICKY AND DIDN’T DECIDE TO JUST KEEP IT YOURSELF. ONE DAY YOU SHALL OWN IT AS WELL

      • Hahaha I feel that way about SO MANY BOOKS. I’m thinking that around Christmastime I should just do rereads? I’m not really sure yet….
        Hahaha yeah, ACOMAF has some scenes that are even more graphic than ACOTAR so I think I’m good. XD
        I KNOW I AM SUCH A GOOD FRIEND I HOPE NIKKI LOVES ME. IF ONLY I WASN’T SO BROKE.

      • SAME. Ah then you’re definitely good don’t worry haha. I’M SURE SHE LOVES YOU. YOU BOUGHT HER A PRETTY BOOK HOW COULD SHE NOT LOVE YOU AFTER THAT IF SHE DIDN’T ALREADY LOEV YOU. ONE DAY YOU WILL HAVE MONEY. AND YOU’LL BE ABLE TO BUY ALL THE PRETTY BOOKS

      • Haha good to hear. SHE BETTER BECAUSE IT’S SO PRETTYYYYYYYYY. I HOPE SO. AND THEN I CAN OWN ALL OF THE WORLD’S LIBRARIES AND BUILD LIKE A MILLION NEW ONES AND THEN BE QUEEN OF THE WORLD.

  5. Love your answers! And the GIFS are so on point! 😍

    One of my recently bought books would be Uprooted and I’m fairly certain that the story will be as attractive as it’s cover ☺ Also, I’d definitely throw The Perks of Being a Wallflower at new faces who’ve never read them. It’s too much of a brilliant book to not read!

    Oh, and thank you so much for the tag! I’ll do it as soon as I can~ 😍
