Yesterday was my 22nd birthday! I am currently in Edinburgh with my boyfriend, David enjoying a relaxed weekend. I saw this tag floating around a while ago and thought it would be perfect to do whilst I am away! Here is the Birthday Book Tag!Birthday Cake – A book with a plot that seems cliché but you adore it anyway
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – I cannot tell you how much I love this book. Yes it is very cliché and rather predictable but I love this book a lot and it really is my happy place book.
Party Guests – You most anticipated book release this year
Children of Vice and Virtue by Tomi Adeyemi – This may come as a surprise to some people because it isn’t usual for me to enjoy fantasy books. When it comes to the Children of series though I love it and devoured the first book in a matter of days. So, this is definitely my most anticipated release for the rest of the year.
Birthday Presents – A book that surprised you with how much you loved it
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James – Now this might be a surprise to people but I went into this book not really knowing if I would like it at all. Obviously as many people know this is my absolute favourite book and I talk about it all the time. It certainly surprised me and I’m so glad that it did.
The Happy Birthday Song – A book that certainly deserved all the hype it got
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – This book deserved every single bit of hype that it got. This book is extraordinary and I could read it over and over again and still be shocked and heavily effected by it. Believe the hype if you have yet to read this!
Happy Music – A book with some very beautiful and truly memorable quotes
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven – This book is another of my all-time favourite books and I look back on my favourite quotes from this very often. I would love a lot of images of my favourite quotes from this book!
Getting Older – A book that you read a long time ago, but you think that you would appreciate it more if you read now
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck – I did enjoy this book when I read it back in high school but I don’t think I appreciated it all that much. If I read it again now I feel I would appreciate it a whole lot more.
Sweet Birthday Memories – A book that kept you incredibly happy during a sad or demanding period of your life
I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman – This is one that I was reading when someone very close to me died. It really helped me come to terms with that person’s death and helped my through an incredibly tough period of my life.There you have it, the Birthday Book Tag! I’ve had a lovely birthday and weekend so far and can’t wait to see more of what Edinburgh holds!
