This tag is based off of the book Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon which I adored! Read my review here. HOWL is a game that the characters play their last day/night before graduating high school. It’s a mix between assassin and a scavenger hunt! So when I saw this tag on Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews, see her post here, I knew I had to partake! It looks like the tag was created by Tova @ Petyr Baeish Books, see their post here.
1. Rowan: Name a book that features your favourite romance trope
So I have a lot of romance tropes that I like, but here are two of my faves featuring two of my favorite romances of all time!
2. Neil: Name a fictional character, who turns out to be a lot more than you initially thought
Camila Dunne from Daisy Jones and the Six. The first time I read Daisy Jones, Camila got sort of lost in the shuffle with all the characters. I liked her, but it wasn’t until I read the book for the second time (via audio) and was like YES CAMILA IS THE BEST!! She has a line at the end of the book that makes me cry every time bc wow what a selfless person!!
3. Cinerama: Name a book that transports you back in time
I used to read so much historical fiction, but recently not so much. But, I loved The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys. This book looks at Franco’s Spain which was something that I had very little experience with. It was such a good novel. Sepetys did it again. I even made my mom read it.
4. The Fremont Troll: Name a fictional character who is always there for you, no matter what. In other words, what fictional character is the centre of your universe?
I adore Evelyn Hugo (from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo) even though she would not be there for me, but I admire her strength and her resilience. This is a book that I honestly have not stopped thinking about since I finished it almost two years ago.
5. Pike Place Market: Name a book from your past that is kind of basic (popular), but will always remain special
The Selection Series by Keria Cass was a book that I adored when I first read it. It was so much fun! Now it’s a bit much and the sequels were meh, but dang I had a fun time reading those books! I read book one right when it came out and had no idea it was a series so when I only had twenty pages left and nothing was wrapped up… I was like…oh no.
6. Starbucks (with your name wildly misspelled): Name a book that features a character who has the same name as you—especially if the name is spelled slightly differently
I have never read a book where the main character has the same name as me. Tree is a nickname, but Gayle Forman’s book I Was Here there is a side character named Tree, so that was fun. Also Taylor Swift’s publicist is named Tree.
7. Seattle Public Library: Name a book that holds a special connection in relation to the library for you
So many! I love my local libraries and because of them have been able to save so much money! I mentioned The Selection earlier but that is just one book that I randomly picked up off the shelf and adored. The same thing happened with Just One Day by Gayle Forman, I knew nothing about that book and picked it up and it is one of my all time favorite books. Prior to joining the book internet community, I would pick my books by browsing my library shelves and read so many gems for the first time.
8. Delilah Park & Nora Roberts: Name an author you’ve met and/or an author you’d love to meet!
We actually did a post recently about all the authors we would love to meet, check that out here. But, after reading Today Tonight Tomorrow I mean I think Rachel Lynn Solomon would be pretty high on my list now!
9. The Seattle Skyline: A book that features a location that has a personal connection for you
I don’t have a ton of locations that I have super personal connections with, but Lucky in Love by Kasie West takes place in Orange County and a lot of the landmarks they talk about are places I grew up going to. The main character even goes to school where my dad went. But, West does incorrectly state something about the college I went to so…it’s not perfect.
10. HOWL: Name a book that features a game that kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time
I don’t read a lot of books with a “game like” element, but The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson has a scavenger hunt which was a lot of fun! I also am just thinking of the movie Jumanji lol
I tag anyone who wants to participate & I tag all YA lovers to read Today Tonight Tomorrow!
Thanks for reading!
