BOOK TAG: My Birthday Book Tag

Book Tag: The Birthday Book Tag

Yes. Today is my birthday and what better way to celebrate it on my blog than with a book tag!

Today I am turning 21. Such a huge milestone apparently although I don’t feel anything for it other than the fact that I’m getting older (with more responsibilities *sigh*). I’ve almost been avoiding this day also just because I’m lazy, I tried to pawn off the job of organising my birthday celebrations to like 5 people cause I couldn’t be bothered.

So many people I know have had massive 21st birthday parties with function bookings at venues and $2000 bar tabs but I’d rather just be home chilling with friends and my books. To compromise, I’m hanging out with some friends this weekend to celebrate and tonight having a family dinner. I’m definitely making some time to read today though cause it’s only fair I get to do something I love on my birthday! That and of course, the best unhealthy past time of gorging myself with cake 🙂

I love sharing but I want it all.

Let’s go!


Book Tag Part 1


BIRTHDAY CAKE: a book with a plot that seems cliche but you adore it anyway


15839976 - BOOK TAG: My Birthday Book TagRed Rising by Pierce Brown

Unfortunately, one of my least favourite tropes is The Chosen One and even though this series never shuts up about this trope, I love this book so much. I’ve been holding out on finishing the series, I’m like 10% through Morning Star and I keep procrastinating finishing this first trilogy because I just haven’t been in the mood for the kind of epic, complex fantasy I know this series is. Eventually, I’ll finish the last book, until then I can still gush about this one. I do adore it, and I even got my SO so into it that he’s already finished the trilogy before I have!


PARTY GUESTS: your most anticipated book release this year

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

While Scythe was a pretty good book, Thunderhead solidified this trilogy (which we all thought was a duology!) as one of my absolute favourites. I love Neal Shusterman’s work and I’m so excited to see what happens next in this book. I cannot wait for it to come out this year!




BIRTHDAY PRESENTS:  a book that surprised you with how much you loved it


43711467. SY475  - BOOK TAG: My Birthday Book Tag

The Flower Girls by Alice Clark-Platts

I don’t think I’ll ever stop preaching about this book this year because it just surprised me SO MUCH. I loved it, it had me on the edge and I just highly recommend this book. It’s probably one of my favourites, if not my favourite read of the year.




THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG: a book that certainly deserved all the hype it got

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

I was excited by the hype over a year before the book was published and I cannot tell you how happy I am that it deserved every bit of praise it got. I thoroughly enjoyed this read so much.




HAPPY MUSIC: a book with some very beautiful and truly memorable quotes

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Another absolute favourite that I re-read recently. This book has some beautiful quotes that resonated with me a lot.

“Truth is the worst monster because it never really goes away.”



GETTING OLDER: a book that you read a long time ago, but you think that you would appreciate it more if you read it as a more mature reader


11788809 - BOOK TAG: My Birthday Book Tag

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

I have tried and failed to read this book and therefore this series 4 times! 4 times. I honestly thought I would only eventually finish it when I’m older and perhaps have read more YA off my TBR. However, I have borrowed the graphic novel volumes 1 and 2 of this book so maybe I’ll actually read it in its entirety even if it’s in a different format.



SWEET BIRTHDAY MEMORIES: a book that kept you incredibly happy during a sad or demanding period of your life


29385546 - BOOK TAG: My Birthday Book Tag

Warcross by Marie Lu

I was going through an incredibly tough time a long time ago and I vividly remember absolutely devouring this book and loving every minute of it. I had been in a book slump for months and this got me out of it! I definitely always find fondly of it for being there for me.




And that is the birthday tag!

When is/was your birthday and how did you celebrate it?

Let me know in the comments and I’ll try to reply while I celebrate the day 🙂


Until next time,
