Book Tag: The Ultimate Recommendations Book Tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Brooklynne (AKA Lost In Literature) to do this tag. It’s been a hot minute, but I’m finally here! Thanks for the tag, lovely! I appreciate it a lot!

This is an original tag created by Ellyn so go check hers out as well.

The Rules!

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer all the questions down below
  3. Pingback to the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx
  4. Nominate 5+ bloggers to do this tag


  1. Recommend a book from one of your favourite genres:


Magical Contemporary – These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling

There’s just something about contemporary novels with a bit of magical aspect to them. Or, in this case, a big magical aspect. It’s one of my favourite books for 2019. I won’t shut up about this one. Sorry, not sorry.

  1. Recommend a short book:


Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno

This book is short in length, but my word, does it pack a punch! This is also a book that is contemporary with a magical element to it. I love this book so much!

  1. Recommend a book-to-screen adaptation:


The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

This book made my cry rivers. This movie made me cry rivers. It’s one of the truest book to movie adaptations that I have seen, and I absolutely love that. Just thinking about it is giving me tingles.

  1. Recommend a book out of your comfort zone:


Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer

Heterosexual romances are always going to be out of my comfort zone (especially when there is zero diverse background people, too). So I come recommending this one.

  1. Recommend a book series:


The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

This series I will never shut up about or stop loving. It is contemporary-ish, with magicalism, and I love it so damn much. I’ll never stop shouting my loves for my disaster gay son Ronan Lynch and his disaster bi boyfriend Adam Parrish. askflj;sf, so good!

  1. Recommend a standalone:


Tell Me How You Really Feel by Aminah Mae Safi

All you need to know is that this book is a lesbian WOC ‘retelling’ of Rory Gilmore and Paris Gellar from Gilmore Girls. Honestly, it’s just that good.

  1. Recommend a book you don’t talk about enough:


Wreck by Fleur Ferris

I feel like I talk about her other ones quite a bit, but this book is her third published novel, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s intense, it’s thrilling, and it had me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails until there was nothing left because I needed answers.

  1. Recommend your “staple” book:

Amelia Westlake by Erin Gough

*coughs* Did you really think I could go a post without recommending this book? We have not one, but two, lesbian main characters. We have feminism. We have said lesbian MCs taking on their elite school’s sexism through the form of a pseudonym. And it’s just fantastic.


  1. Recommend the book(s) that got you into reading:

This one is hard, because I was born with a book in my hand. Legit story.

Mum read to me often as a kid, and I never stopped. I was reading by myself before I started school (so, like 4 years old?) and yeah, never stopped.


  1. Recommend 3+ bloggers who recommend great books:

Brooklynne Lost In Literature

Her reviews are so wonderful and so thoughtful. I’ve picked up many recommendations from her!

Bron – Bookishbron

Bron has incredible taste in books, and her reviews are always so thoughtful and wonderful, and I adore every single inch of her. She has an incredible array of reviews, too, from children’s to YA to adult – there is literally something for everyone.

Sarah – Sarah Says

Sarah is so honest with her reviews, and I love that about her. She has great taste, and she loves to read as diverse as I do, which is incredible.


Tag Time!

I never know who to tag, so please don’t feel obligated!

Bookish Brooklyn

Sarah Says




Thanks for reading!

  1. I was exactly the same Star. From a wee poppet, my mum would take me to the library every week to borrow a dozen or so books so by the age of four, I was reading them back to her and could recognise simple words. Reading is so important for children. I can’t believe I still haven’t watched The Hate U Give, I don’t usually watch many movies and only really have the weekends but will have to check it out over the holidays. Excited to post the tag, thanks so much for tagging me!

    1. It’s so wonderful to hear that your mum was the same as mine! I practically lived at the library on a weekend. Ours was only open on a Saturday from 9am-12pm, but I would spend all three hours there, just reading and then using their internet lol.
      Reading is so essential for children, it’s such a joy.
      And I hope you’re able to get to The Hate U Give. It’s such a powerful movie, I think.
      Looking forward to seeing your answers!
