“Tale As Old As Time” – A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading.
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Ob-vious-ly. You read that in Snape’s voice, didn’t ya?
Belle – A book your brought for it’s beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too.
The Next Together by Lauren James
I guess I actually cover rented this, as I got it from my local library (library love forever) instead of actually buying it. Not going to lie when I say that the cover was a pretty big factor though, because LOOK AT IT. Thankfully, the time travel plot and sweet romance was just as good as the cover promised.

Beast – A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you
13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough
I went through a patch of struggling to find any good young adult thriller or crime novels, so when I spotted this on NetGalley I requested it but refused to get my hopes up. Such an optimist, me. Despite my low expectations, this twisty little book blew me away. It had everything I look for in a good thriller, and it kept me on my toes with every new revelation. You can find out exactly why in my review.
Gaston – A book everyone loves that you don’t
Divergent (The Divergent Series #1) by Veronica Roth
I feel like Veronica Roth wrote Divergent as if she knew it was going to be made into a film. It’s just so…formulaic. I never felt connected to any of the characters, who seemed a bit like The Hunger Games cast offs to me. I don’t hate it, but I do think there are tons of dystopia books that are far superior in terms of originality and world building.
Lefou – A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart
Lucien | A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I’m not a Tamlin fan. I wasn’t overly keen on him in A Court of Thorns and Roses, and I definitely became substantially less keen once I started reading A Court of Mist and Fury. Lucien could do with standing up to the golden High Lord a little more than he does (*cough* grow a pair *cough*) but at least he has a sense of humour. Plus he is super sassy and I do love a sassy man.

Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumier & Cogsworth – A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable
Am I Normal Yet? (Normal #1) by Holly Bourne
Hmm. I can’t say Harry Potter again, can I? No? Okay, fine. In that case, I’m going to go with a book that I only read a couple of months ago, but really picked me up when I was feeling a little bit low. Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne is a funny, touching, wonderful, feminist ode to friendship, growing up and tackling mental health. Read it.
“Something There” – A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end
The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness
Despite my unending adoration for the one and only Patrick Ness, I actually really struggled to get into The Knife of Never Letting Go until I hit the 200 page mark. I struggled to get my head around the characters being able to hear each other’s thoughts in one big, messy blast of noise and the writing was so totally different to anything I’d read for so long. Once it clicked, I couldn’t put it down. You can find out more about why I loved it here.
