Hello Lovelies! I saw this book tag going around and I figured that since a Leap Year only comes every four years, it would be a while before I could do it again so… Why not?! Let’s just jump right in!
𝟏. 𝐀𝐧 𝐄𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚 𝐃𝐚𝐲: 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐛𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐚 𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚?
This is going to seem like a really cheesy answer, but I have to go with City of Bones. This was the series that got me into reading and it has to do with that something extra that was in it. I fell in love instantly and I know I wouldn’t be the reader I am today without this book.
𝟐. 𝐓𝐚𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐀 𝐁𝐢𝐠 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐩: 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞/𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐟𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝?
I was really afraid to read The Cruel Prince for SOOOOO long. It was really hyped up and a lot of people’s favorites and I was really scared that I wasn’t going to like it. I put off reading it and then I finally took the plunge in September. I ended up being partially right because, while I liked certain aspects of this book, I wasn’t as blown away as I wanted to be.
If you would like to, you can read my review here where I go into further detail on my feelings on this book.
𝟑. 𝐄𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝟒 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬: 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝟒𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫?
The fourth book I read this year was Stolen By Them (Between Rebels #1). I actually really enjoyed this book, a lot more than I thought I was going to. It had a spin on villains and heroes that I really liked and I encourage you to check it out if you’re into RH or sci-fi!
𝟒. 𝟑𝟔𝟔 𝐝𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫: 𝐋𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝟑𝐫𝐝 𝐬𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐟, 𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝟔𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐬𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐟, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝟔𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐚𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭!
This question ended up really working out. The 6th book on my 3rd shelf is Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) and the 6th book after that is Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1). Both of these belong to some of my favorite series ever so I’m glad they were the answers to this question.
𝟓. 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐀𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐝: 𝐍𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝟒 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐛𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐞𝐱𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐩 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫.
- Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson : I keep saying, “I’m going to read Brandon Sanderson this year”… and it just doesn’t happen. Maybe if I give myself four years it finally will 🤣
- Red Sister (Book of the Ancestor #1) : I’m hoping to read this series soon, I just keep putting it off because I feel like I haven’t been ready for it. Now that the series is complete and the spin-off is coming out, I feel like I can finally start it. I definitely think that I’ll have read this by next Leap Year.
- A Kiss of Shadows (Merry Gentry #1) : I have read Laurell K. Hamilton’s other series and I loved it. This series is more fae focused than the other one so I’m really expecting to love it. I just haven’t been in the mood to pick it up quite yet.
- And I Darken (The Conqueror’s Saga #1) : This book has been on my TBR for so long that I just hope that I will have read it within the next four years.

One of the bookish things I like to stay away from is the controversies, particularly the ones on Twitter. I feel like people get really fired up on social media and a simple argument becomes a situation where a bunch of outside people get involved and then it just turns into this giant dumpster fire. And I definitely don’t want any part of that.
