Seventeen Book Tag: Iconic Moments Edition (original)


Hi everyone! Today I’m ending the year by sharing the last (and definitely my favorite) edition of the Seventeen book tag that I created with my friend Romie, a tag that combines our love for reading and our love for the Kpop group Seventeen. (You can find the previous editions here and here).

I’ve spend an embarrassingly long amount of time watching those “funniest/cutest Seventeen moments” videos on YouTube, and I had a lot of fun trying to come up with bookish questions that went well with their most iconic moments. So, without further ado, here’s the very last Seventeen Book Tag: iconic moments edition.

Mingyu’s Suitcase: a book that took you some time to get into, but was totally worth it


I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I had a little bit of a problem getting into Want by Cindy Pon. I’m not sure whether it was the book or whether it was me, but I kept getting distracted while listening to the audiobook and sometimes I would zone out completely, only to have to rewind the audiobook to make sure I didn’t miss anything important. But at some point I really got into it and couldn’t put it down anymore. I’m incredibly happy that the release of it’s sequel, Ruse, is only 3 months away now, because I can’t wait to coninue the series!

S.Coups Fireworks: a book that took you by surprise


I didn’t have the highest expectations for A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi. I mean, I didn’t love Tahereh’s writing in her Shatter Me series and this was the first time she wrote a contemporary novel so I was a bit hesitant going into it, but I ended up loving it so, so much. This book and it’s characters grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let me go until I had finished the book, mere hours later.

Seventeen Book Tag: Members Edition (original)


Hi everyone! As you might’ve seen on my blog last week, my friend Romie and I started a book tag series that combines our love for reading and the KPop group Seventeen. Last week we shared the first edition of this tag, the song edition, and this week we’re sharing the second edition, aka, the members edition! Coming up with fitting questions for all of the members was quite difficult, but we really hope we did them justice.

Jeonghan: a character that is an absolute angel34325090.jpg

I am going to take this question way too literally and go with Angel from I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman. I Was Born For This is one of my all time favorite books, and Angel is one of my all time favorite characters. She’s so incredibly sweet, and is always there to help. Doesn’t matter if she knows you or not. Her name suits her very well.

Vernon: a biracial character that didn’t let society dictate their life


YES, I’m super excited about answering this question because it means that I get to do one of my favorite things, aka, hyping up a friend’s WIP! Romie (you know, the person who created this tag with me) is currently writing #MetallicPurpleProject and she actually let me read it! (And be the very unofficial editor of it, hehe.) I loved it a looooot and one of my favorite things about it was definitely the main character Estée, an incredible person who definitely fits this question. I really hope all of you will be able to read her story too, because she has a lot of incredibly important things to say. Lees verder

Seventeen Book Tag: Song Edition (original)


Hi everyone! Today I’m back after a month of not blogging (I know, I know, I’m sorry) to share an original book tag with you!

My friend Romie and I both love the KPop group SEVENTEEN a lot, so we thought it’d be fun to take our love for them and our love for books, and mush them together to create a book tag. Or, should I say, three tags. Yes, we might have gone a little overboard and made three different versions of this, but hey, we had a lot of fun with this and we hope you will too! So, without further ado, here’s the Seventeen book tag: song edition. 

Very Nice: a book that made you so happy your heart felt like it was going to explode31447601

When I first read it over a year ago, Noteworthy by Riley Redgate made me ridiculously happy. I loved the writing style, the music aspects of it, the characters and their friendships, and I couldn’t stop smiling through most of the scenes. Just talking about this book right now is bringing back memories and I can’t help but grin a little. I guess I should add this title to my never ending “books I should reread” pile.

Pretty U: a book with a gorgeous cover40851643

There’s a LOT of book with incredibly pretty covers so choosing just one is very hard, but I’m going to go with If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann, partially because it was announced last week and it might not be on your radars yet! I absolutely adored Claire Kann’s debut, Let’s Talk About Love, and If It Makes You Happy sounds like it’s going to be just as good, if not better. And the cover makes me so happy! We don’t get to see happy, plus size Black women on covers a lot so the fact that this cover exists is amazing and I can’t wait to put it face-out on my shelf.  Lees verder
