Easter Time book tag (1).png

Theresa @ The Calico Books created this tag and was kind enough to tag me. I have always loved Easter and the springtime. A themed book tag does wonders to get me in the spirit. I love the questions that she came up with and the graphics that she created are so adorable.

  • Tag some friends.
  • Link back to this post, and be sure to mention the creator (Theresa @ The Calico Books)
  • Have fun!

All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews

20763826

I read Women Talking by Miriam Toews last fall and absolutely loved it. I know that it is coming out in the US soon and I have seen some buzz for it, which makes me very happy. I decided to read some of her backlist titles, and I am so glad that I did. All My Puny Sorrows is so beautifully written and tackles some pretty serious topics in a realistic way. I hope that more people discover this gem after reading Women Talking.

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

35068705

I have loved so many debut novels, but The Poppy War was the first one that came to mind. I recently received an eARC from Edelweiss for the sequel and all I want to do is abandon all the other ARCs I am reading and start The Dragon Republic, even though it does not come out for months. The world that R.F. Kuang created is fascinating and original. It is rare that I fall in love with a fantasy novel, but The Poppy War is something special.

Normal People by Sally Rooney

37539457

I have talked about Normal People a lot lately, but there is something so special about it. On the surface it is such a simple story about two people navigating their relationship, but it has so much depth and many layers. I was not ready to say goodbye to these characters and to their story.

The Humans by Matt Haig

21265230

My city has a pretty great used bookstore, and I have found a lot of amazing books there at a great price. One of the most memorable is The Humans. It was in perfect condition and the book itself is wonderful and charming. It is such an interesting SciFi novel that I would recommend to all readers.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

42201431

The Unhoneymooners is the first Christina Lauren novel that I have read and I will definitely be picking up more of their books. I loved the banter between the characters, and it had all of my favourite tropes in romance. It was just so fun to read with a lot of sweet and romantic moments.

Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

6900

I read Tuesday With Morrie and it is one of the books that I credit with helping me to fall in love with reading, particularly nonfiction. There were a lot of life lessons that I took away and I truly believe made me a better person. Morrie was so wise and had an interesting outlook on life. It is a book that I still turn to from time to time.

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

27212488

I Let You Go is my all time favourite thriller. It does something very unique that I can not get in to without spoilers. I will just say that it completely took me by surprise and continued to do so until the very last page.

I hope all of you who celebrate Easter have an amazing holiday filled with friends, family, and CHOCOLATE! Those who don’t celebrate I hope you have a great weekend filled with the same things.kkbLogo

  1. God. Mitch Albom. So many memories! There was a great show on ESPN every Sunday called the Sports Reporters that I watched religiously and he was on it with Mike Lupica (who also writes kids sports books now)…. the good old days. 🙂

  2. This is such a cute tag! I might have to participate too. I’m really curious about Women Talking (and Miriam Toew’s work as a whole) and I also didn’t want Normal People to end.

  3. I’ve only heard amazing things about The Poppy War and I can’t wait to read it now! Also, I’ve been seeing Normal People pop up a lot recently so maybe I’ll add it to my TBR. I love Christina Lauren and I’ve read all of their books! The Unhoneymooners is definitely one of their best, but I can’t wait to see what you think of their other books!

      1. I think the one that most people like is Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating. They only have one other hate to love romance but that’s Beautiful Bastard and is (in my opinion) their worst book. But, I think most of their recent standalones are amazing!

  4. Ah this is an adorable tag! I haven’t read many of these books, but I’ve heard so many amazing things about The Poppy War. I had seen it in the stores when it first debuted, but for some reason I didn’t get it that day? I’m so mad at myself LOL. It sounds like I might need to try to get that one on my shelves ASAP!

  5. I felt the same way about Normal People! I fell so much in love with these characters and I don’t want to stop reading about them ❤ Really need to read The Poppy War knowing that the sequel will be coming soon!
