ThursTag: The Folklore Tag

It’s ThursTag time and today I’m doing a tag I first saw on The Biblioshelf: The Folklore Tag. Like just about everyone else, I adore Folklore by Taylor Swift, so I couldn’t pass up this tag when I saw it.

Tag Rules:

  • Link to the original creator: Ilsa @ A Whisper Of Ink
  • Tag at least 3 people.
  • Declare the rules and list of prompts in your post
  • Thank whoever who tagged you and link to their post.

The 1: A book an ending that left you speechless

Venom by Bex Hogan. It left me speechless apart from s tring of expletives as I threw it across the room.

Cardigan: a book that makes you feel happy and sad all at once

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy. It is such a beautiful, hopeful book, but definitely also made me a little sad.

The Last Great American Dynasty: A book with a fascinating and well told story

The Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley. It’s a stunning debut, it was gripping and brilliantly written.

Wilder Girls by Rory Power. I didn’t hate it, I just didn’t love it and I frequently find myself going back and wondering what the point of some of it was.

My Tears Ricochet: A book that made you cry uncontrollably

Afterlove by Tanya Byrne. Sad tears. Happy tears. More sad tears. I don’t know why I’m crying anymore tears. Oh my god someone please call an eye plumber tears.

Mirrorball: a book that feels like it was written for you

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. This book healed me in ways I didn’t even know I needed.

Seven: A childhood book that makes you feel nostalgic

Heidi by Johanna Spyri. I always wanted to go and live in the mountains with my grandparents and some goats.

August: A book that reminds you of summer

Destination Anywhere by Sara Barnard. The travelling around Canada had big summer vibes for me!

This is Me Trying: a book that deals with loneliness and sadness

Outside by Sarah Ann Jukes where the girl is dealing with some serious issues that definitely include loneliness and sadness.

Illicit Affairs: a book that gave you a book hangover

Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn. It was so brilliant and sucked me in. I read it in two sittings, and then couldn’t get into another book for a while after.

Invisible String: a book that came into your life at the exact right time

Fierce Fragile Hearts by Sara Barnard. It was like some kind of literary therapy I didn’t know I needed.

Mad Woman: a book with a female character you adore

The Midnight Hour by Benjamin Read and Laura Trinder. Emily is wonderful, resourceful, smart and brave and I loved joining her on her adventure.

Epiphany: a book that is haunting

Challenger Deep by Neal Schusterman. It’s haunted me since I read it.

Betty: a book couple that fills you with yearning

Luvain Fen and Sorrow Ventaxis from State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury. No, I shall not be taking any further questions at this time.

Peace: a book character you’d die for because you love them so much

Well that’s very dramatic and I don’t know that there are any book characters that I would be prepared to die for.

Hoax: a book you thought you were going to love but didn’t

How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow. This book just hit some personal triggers for me very quickly and I had to DNF, which was sad because it’s one I was very excited to read.

Have you done this tag? Share yours with me if you have! Also, are there any characters you would actually be prepared to die for?
