The Cliché Book Tag

The Cliché Book Tag was created by Kat @Life and Other Disasters! And I was tagged by the amazing The Orangutan Librarian!

Actions Speak Louder Than Words.
A Book That Wasn’t Or Couldn’t Be Better Than The Movie.

I truly couldn’t think of one! So I had to go with a manga adaptation, because even though I bought the first two volumes, I know that without a doubt nothing can beat the anime version of Code Geass! Seriously, best anime in the entire world.

The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side.
A Rags To Riches Or Riches To Rags Story.

Why am I getting misty eyed right now? But seriously, is there a better answer than Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo? I don’t think so.

The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree.
A Parent Child Relationship That You Love

Best family in all of literature is in The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas! Hands down. Everyone else can go home. The Carters win it all, every time.

You Can’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover.
A Great Book That Needs A Better Cover.

Oh my word, this was first published in 2005, at the height of the vampire craze, and boy does it show! But even sixteen books later, I hate the cover of this series. So, I had to go with Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood #1) by J.R. Ward!

You Can’t Please Everyone.
A Book You Hate That Everyone Loves.

I swear, every tag in existence makes me talk about my hate of Night Film by Marisha Pessl! Please, I can’t handle anymore hate for disliking this gross book than I already get!

What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger.
What’s A Book That Made You A Better Person For Having Read It.

You all are going to think I’m so corny (and I am), but Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor truly reminded me of my love for reading. It touched me in ways most books could never dream of. It healed so many of the broken pieces that I carry inside myself. I can’t describe that magic of this book, but I can honestly say it changed me and truly did make me a better person. And I will always say what a blessing this book is.

Love Is Blind.
A Book With A Disabled Character.

I’ll go with my most recent read with a disabled character (who also just happens to be the best character in the entire series) and that is ella from Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff!

Ignorance Is Bliss.
A Book That Is Bad But You Just Don’t Want To Admit It.

When I was younger I used to eat all their work up! Then I started critically reading and realized how bad the content was. The Pact (The McGregor Brothers #1) by Karina Halle really impacted me when I read it, so I don’t want to think about how bad it truly probably is.

There Is No Time Like The Present.
What Is Your Favourite Contemporary Book?

Without question, Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher. Always and forever.

Better Safe Than Sorry.
A Book You Don’t Want To Read In Case It’s Bad.

For sure that would be Now I Rise (The Conqueror’s Saga #2) by Kiersten White, because I wasn’t the biggest fan of And I Darken, but the series is so beloved by so many of my friends! I’m scared, you all!

I tag: May, LillySilvia, Alienor, Hannah, Lori, Bentley, Sophie, Kayla, Avery, & Raven! But if you like this tag and want to also do it, consider yourself tagged by me!

    1. You’re so welcome, love! And oh my gosh… the scariest hype ever is around that series. I put Now I Rise on my “must read of 2018” list of 12 books and…. mistakes were made! Hahahaha. I hope you’re having an amazing May and having the happiest of reading, love! 💗

      1. I’ve read some spoilers for the second book and I’m not sure if I want to read it. I think I’d rather read something light-hearted this summer. 🤣

  2. I definitely agree with Dark Lover’s cover! I would have never picked it up in the store if it weren’t for a bookseller at Borders who put it in my hand. I love this series though I really need to read them all!

  3. Awww, I love what you wrote about Strange the Dreamer. Laini Taylor is such a fantastic author, and I can totally see how that book in particular could leave such an impact. 🙂 Great post! ❤

  4. Omg you’ll have to let me know when you plan on reading Now I Rise so we can BR it together!! I didn’t like And I Darken and I am also VERY scared to read Now I Rise (because all my friends loved it?). And nooo don’t remind me of Six of Crows, I’m going to tear up too. 😭 Thank you for the tag, angel!!! 💕💕

  5. Love your answers, Melanie! I totally agree with you on Six Of Crows and The Dark Lover! I haven’t read the Strange the Dreamer yet but I’ll soon. And I Darken didn’t work out for me either. I’ve heard the second book is better than the first book but I’m still not sure that I would love it. OMG, I really need to read Mud Vein, It’s been on my TBR for a very long time.
    Anyways, thanks for tagging me! 🙂

  6. I totally get what you mean about Strange the Dreamer. As soon as I started reading it I knew it was special–the magic of the words and story was on its own level and it completely filled me up when I was reading it. I can’t wait for the magic to be brought back in Muse of Nightmares.

  7. ooo this seems like such a fun tag!! I still need to read Obsidio and Strange the Dreamer, honestly, what am I doing with my life :”)

    (even now, part of me is stubbornly refusing to believe that the Six of Crows is over… why is it a duology, I want to read 1000 books about Kaz and Inej and the rest of my bloodthirsty little darlings </3)

    I SAW NOW I RISE AND I ACTUALLY SQUEALED. I know a lot of people were iffy about And I Darken but I hope you decide to pick up the next book!! you will not regret it!! also if you do decide to read it, you have to let me know how that goes so we can cry together 😉😭

  8. Love your answers, Mel! This one more than cemented my wish to read Strange the Dreamer as soon as possible ❤ And that sure is one bad cover… I'm so glad we've caught up with the times (mostly)!
    Thanks so much for tagging me ^_^ I'm a self-confessed lover of clichés hahaha
