BLOGMAS DAY FOUR: Midnights Book Tag (3am edition)

Since Taylor SUPRISE RELEASED SEVEN MORE TRACKS AT 3AM, Star had to make an addendum to her original Midnights Book Tag,  to include them. Thus we have the Midnights Book Tag (3am edition)!

In solidarity with the striking HarperCollins Union, we have chosen not to use or talk about any HC titles. Everyone deserves a fair contract. You can learn more here.

Day Three: Midnights Book Tag


The Great War – A love that rises above even the hardest time

Bree: The rendition of Hades & Persephone in Lore Olympus by Rachel Smythe is particularly long-suffering version of their love story. Especially if you’re caught up with the currently-updating webcomic.

57282218

Tree: Historical romance does this trope so well and I had plenty to choose from, but A Lady’s Guide to Misconduct by Meredith Duran stands out to me.

Bigger Than the Whole Sky – A book that deals with grief

Bree: Once again, I read every Emily Henry book so fast, it’s hard for me to retain any of the details, but I remember Beach Read having the premise of the MC inheriting a lake house from her late, estranged father and having to sort through her conflicting emotions about what he had done, and how she would never truly get answers.

Tree: The Dead Romantics deals with grief in a way that I found to be really heartfelt, but also wasn’t an overly sad book. That being said, major TW for death of a loved parent.

Paris – Favorite Escape

Bree: Since I already used The Folk of the Air series in part 1 of this tag, I’ll go with the Zodiac series by Romina Russell instead. I just love how she built an entire solar system out of astrological star signs! Each character is from a planet that is related with a specific zodiac sign, and they have all their attributed character traits.

Tree: Historical romance is my escape of choice and I’ve been reading a lot of it this year. I’ve been flying through The Hathaways series. I’ve read books two (pictured), three, and four in the past week lol.

High Infidelity – A Love Triangle

Bree: I honestly HATE this trope and don’t enjoy most books that have it, but like the House of Night series by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast? SLAYS. And like I love all the boys in this too; it just strikes such a perfect balance. When picking this answer I literally asked myself if it was “too old/niche” of a book to use, BUT THEN I WENT TO BN AND IT HAD A SPECIAL TAG ON THE SHELF!! So, of course I felt very validated in my pick.

Tree: This isn’t my favorite trope and the only time it’s worked for me recently is in Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake and really one one of the love interests is viable after a certain thing happens.

Glitch – Friends to Lovers

Bree: THE SOFTEST SOFT BOYS!! Nick & Charlie from Heartstopper by Alice Oseman are the BEST and it didn’t even occur to me until right now that they are friends-to-lovers! Wow an OTP with this trope I actually love. The day has finally come.

54963520. sy475

Tree: Another trope I don’t love! To be fair, I don’t seek it out so I think I just haven’t found enough that have worked for me. But, it did really work for me in People We Meet On Vacation by Emily Henry.

Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve – A book you wish had a different ending/A book you DNF’d

Bree: I remember being so psyched by the premise of The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix when it was announced! But when I went to read it, it was the exact opposite vibe of what I had been hoping for, so I ended up DNF’ing it.

44074800. sy475

Tree: The last couple of books that I have really not worked for me are upcoming releases by midlist authors so I don’t want to say anything because they were both me situations and I think these books will still find their readers.

Dear Reader – A book that taught you something important

Bree: The Blue Period manga by Tsubasa Yamaguchi taught me so many things about art and the art world this year! I feel like with each volume I read, I unlocked new information and leveled up my skills/understanding.

52684608

Tree: My favorite nonfiction book of 2022 is How the Word is Passed by Clint Smith. He writes about his experience visiting several monuments/locations and talks about how they discuss their involvement with Slavery in the USA. I would recommend this one to literally everyone and the audiobook was fantastic and read by the author.


What’s your favorite 3 am track?
