Meet Bekah: the Taylor Swift Book Tag


For a good long while now, I've wanted to introduce you to some of my favorite bloggers in a series of "meet the blogger" type posts. I've become friends with some bloggers through various emails or conversations on our blogs, but I never had a good idea to "pitch" to said bloggers (all the really good ones were taken). This spring I finally forged ahead and got in touch with some bloggers, asking if they wanted to put together something they might be comfortable writing - i.e., a topic they wanted to talk about, a random fun and popular book tag. Because of that, this isn't a traditional "meet and greet" blogger introduction. Rather, it's blogging friends putting together something they enjoy, and hopefully because of that it reads like you'd be getting together and having coffee with them. That's what - in my opinion, makes this such fun. Fortunately even without an organized "this-is-what-I-want" plan, they agreed to the invitation. Today, we are here to meet one such blogger.

If you haven't met Bekah yet, be prepared to leave her blog with a sweet tooth. She's the owner of Will Bake for Books, a unique book review site that combines two of her favorite things: books and baking! I had the pleasure of meeting Bekah recently in comparison to my time blogging and can honestly say, she is such a fun and lovely person to know.

We've had many a conversation fan-girling over our favorite TV series (we share a lot of similarities here) and discussing books we may or may not have 100% agreed on - and the reasons why. She generously helped me with some blogging technical details, and she's a kind and terrific source of encouragement. Bottom line, she's been a fun blogger to call friend. Today, you can meet her through this fun Taylor Swift book tag she put together (I won't lie, if someone didn't snag this, I figured I'd have to put it together). Without further ado, let's get started.

The Taylor Swift Book Tag
- by Bekah -


1. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with.
 
allegiant

Easy, Allegiant by Veronica Roth. I fell in love with Divergent and Insurgent, recommended the series to practically everyone I knew, and even claimed it to be the best book/series ever- a pretty big thing since I have many, many favorites. Then the infamous conclusion to this beloved series RUINED EVERYTHING and I’m pretty sure I can never go back. Like, ever.

 
2. Red - pick a book with a RED cover.
 
Print
The Elite by Keira Cass. I remember falling in love with The Selection during my dystopian phase, but I still haven’t gotten to the continuing books. Love this gorgeous red cover. I picked this one over others because seriously these books should be the definition of cover candy. Am I right?!
 
3. The Best Day - pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic.
 
703292
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare. Surprisingly, I didn’t love reading growing up (more of an outdoors person, I guess…oh, how the times have changed) and this book was my first experience where I truly enjoyed a story. Plus the memory of my mom reading it aloud to me and my sister makes me smile every time.
 
4. Love Story - pick a book with forbidden love.
 
13574417
It doesn’t get more forbidden than human and alien, so I’m going to go with Alienated by Melissa Landers on this one! I heart this cover. And Aelyx. *wink*
 
5. I Knew You Were Trouble - pick a book with a bad character you couldn’t help but love.
 
17703150
This is a hard one because I don’t generally “like” bad characters, but I guess I would pick Mr. Macy from Born of Persuasion. I didn’t love him per say, but I was pretty enchanted by his charming character and couldn’t help but root for him and Julia sometimes…even after I realized he was, hopefully without spoiling anything, cray-cray.
 
6. Innocent - pick a book that someone ruined the ending for.
 
51FY2N51RVL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_
I’ve made it a habit to be the first in my group to read a book or series but sometimes there is just nothing you can do to avoid spoilers. That was the case with The Scarlet Pimpernel. I can’t remember if it was my older sister who told me the ending years before I actually read it or if it was someone else, but I already knew the big reveal. Still one of the my all-time favorite reads though!
 
7. Everything Has Changed - pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development.
 
katniss-everdeen-kills-everything-video-movie-edit
Katniss from The Hunger Games series. Between the games and war, she probably has one of the biggest character changes I’ve ever read (kinda like Tris who goes through something similar).
 
8. You Belong With Me - pick your most anticipated book release.
 
bc891d7be9e88d6782a355435ba783e0
 
Hmm…I pick Shades of Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon. I really like how these books combine contemporary with fantasy. Loved the first book, really liked the second, and most eagerly anticipating this third one!
 
9. Forever and Always - pick your favorite book couple.
 
51F+a7Gt2BL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_
Again, so hard! There are just too many cute book couples. What comes to mind first is Ty and Celia from Meant to Be Mine. They are seriously adorbs.
 
10. Come Back, Be Here - pick the book you would least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much.
 
The_Fault_in_Our_Stars
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I pick it up every once in a while to re-read, so I wouldn’t want it gone for a long time! Because what if I need my Hazel/Augustus fix?? Hmmmm???

    1. He is quite charismatic isn't he, Lis!? I only read one book in the series but remembering being torn between halfway liking him and thinking him repulsive. ;)

  8. Loved The Witch of Blackbird Pond. Personally I also loved how Allengiant ended. I know kinda of weird but statistically with all of the dystopian heroines out there someone had too.... Ugh so hard to critic books sometimes without giving away spoilers.

    1. I've never read "Blackbird" but funnily enough after I got this from Bekah, I saw it somewhere else listed as someone else's favorite. Perhaps that's a sign. ;)

      I'm glad you liked Allegiant's end. I haven't read the books (yet), but have read the spoiler and LOVED Divergent as an adaptation. Someday I do plan on reading the books. :)

  9. So, I'm SUPER late to the party, but I finally had a chance to come over and comment! I just love this new feature, Rissi and am looking forward to meeting new bloggers (and hopefully showing up here myself :) ). Of course, I already know Bekah, and am thrilled to see her on your blog. This is such a creative post, and I love some of the books mentioned here... namely Born of Persuasion and Hunger Games, fantastic books. :)

    1. You are NEVER late to the party, Cassie. Especially when it comes to meeting new bloggers. :) I had a lot of fun putting this together and am hoping I can do a few more at least, but it all depends on bloggers having the time (which believe me, I totally understand). Ditto! Hopefully you can join in soon (which would be fabulous!) and if not, again I totally get it. :)

      Bekah did a great job with this TS Tag. I'm glad she chose it because otherwise I'd have HAD to put it together. Thanks for commenting. :)
