Surprisingly enough, this post was not made to vehemently apologize for not posting in ages. I decided that since I haven't read anything in and while and haven't ordered any new books (I'm working on it) I'm going to make a book tag post! I've been wanting to make one for a while now bt haven't been able to get around to it because a. I had a book to read b. I had a book review to write c. I had homework or d. I had other things to do. But at the moment, I don't have any of those so I was like, I haven't posted in forever so why not make a book tag post? So normally book tags are created on BookTube and made in videos. But 1. videos take forever to edit and post and 2. I'm not too good at talking to a camera. I'm much better blogging, so why not just make a tag in blog form? It gets the same point across.
Anyway, the Social Media Book Tag is a tag comparing books to some popular social media sites such as Instagram and Twitter. I'll link all my social media sites along with the book that goes with them. Feel free to follow/friend me on any one of them :).
Alright, enough of the chit chat (chit type?) Let's get started on this book tag.
Twitter- A favorite Book That Is Short
For those of you who read my blog, you'd know that I loved Catching Jordan. It was a fantastic read with a heart melting romance and characters you can't help but love and relate to. Guys, seriously, this is an amazing read. If you haven't read it, what are you waiting for?! READ IT! Here's a link to it on Miranda's Wattpad, but really, who doesn't want this cute book on their shelf? Plus, you can't get the rest of the series on Wattpad (at least, not Stealing Parker which is just as good)
What girl doesn't want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn't just surrounded by hot guys, though-she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys and that's just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.
But everything she's ever worked for is threatened when Ty Green moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he's also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan's feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart's on the line?
Facebook- A Book Everyone Pressured You Into Reading
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I was never planning on reading this book. It just never sounded interesting to me. But then seemingly everyone was like THE SELECTION IS SOOOOOOOO GOOD! YOU HAVE TO READ IT!
I pretty much ignored them. But then, this summer I was bored and wanted to read something, so I ordered The Selection. I'd heard the protagonist was rather annoying so I was cautious going in, but surprisingly, I found myself actually enjoying the book. Not my favorite, but it was interesting. Then I read the second and third book. Sorry, but those two, especially the third, ruined the series for me.
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself--and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
Tumblr- A Book You've Read Before it Was CooL
No thought about it, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Most books now I read after they get popular and after I hear great reviews of them but the Hunger Games? I read it long before it was popular and long before there was even a movie being dicsussed (okay maybe not... I don't know when they picked up the movie rights for the book, but it wasn't being casted or written or had any hype about it yet). I remember I used to look up fan made feast scenes haha. I also remember recommending it to all my friends like, "You have to read this book! It's amazing! It's called The Hunger Games!"
Friend: "What's it about?"
Me: "It's in the future and twenty four kids are sent into this arena to kill each other and fight to the death until there is only one survivor and the whole country watches because it's for their entertainment! It's soo good! You gotta read it!"
Friend: .... *slowly backs away*
The nation of Panem, formed from a post-apocalyptic North America, is a country that consists of a wealthy Capitol region surrounded by 12 poorer districts. Early in its history, a rebellion led by a 13th district against the Capitol resulted in its destruction and the creation of an annual televised event known as the Hunger Games. In punishment, and as a reminder of the power and grace of the Capitol, each district must yield one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 through a lottery system to participate in the games. The 'tributes' are chosen during the annual Reaping and are forced to fight to the death, leaving only one survivor to claim victory.
When 16-year-old Katniss's young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives. , she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.
My Space (don't have one)- A Book You Can't Remember Whether or not you like it
This one took me a while to think of because I remember how I feel about books. Heck, they're placed in the order that I like them on my bookshelf, I even remember the ones in the misc. shelf. So yeah, this one took a while to think about. Finally I landed on a book that I read ages ago and I mean ages. It's called the Thirteenth Princess and it's written by Diane Zahler. Seriously, I read this when I was REALLY young. I remember most of the books I read when I was younger and how I feel about them but I don't clearly remember this one. I remember being scared about a part of it, but otherwise not much. I think I liked it... I think...
Zita is not an ordinary servant girl—she's the thirteenth daughter of a king who wanted only sons. When she was born, Zita's father banished her to the servants' quarters to work in the kitchens, where she can only communicate with her royal sisters in secret.
Then, after Zita's twelfth birthday, the princesses all fall mysteriously ill. The only clue is their strangely worn and tattered shoes. With the help of her friends—Breckin the stable boy, Babette the witch, and Milek the soldier—Zita follows her bewitched sisters into a magical world of endless dancing and dreams. But something more sinister is afoot—and unless Zita and her friends can break the curse, the twelve princesses will surely dance to their deaths.
A classic fairy tale with a bold twist, The Thirteenth Princess tells the unforgettable story of a magical castle, true love, spellbound princesses—and the young girl determined to save them all
InstaGram (Other Instagram)- A Beautiful Book You Would Post On Instagram
Synopsis for City of Bones:
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know...
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end

Magic is dangerous; but love is more dangerous still.
In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.
The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London's dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters; including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans.
Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them....
YouTube- A Book You'd Like to See Turned Into a Movie
UGH THERE ARE SO MANY
For contemporary I'm going with the first one that pops into my head that I haven't already used or used the author and that would be Anna and the French Kiss *scratches that out* I mean To All the Boys I've Loved Before
Okay, both would be marvelous movies. If you haven't read either, I don't know where you've been because these books are flabbergastingly perfect. Seriously, Anna (by Stephanie Perkins) and To All the Boys I've Loved Before (Jenny Han) are two of my favorite contemporary novels.
These books made me laugh, want to cry because of the fabulous romance and feel very emotionally attached to the characters, as if I personally knew them. They're well written, funny, and very enjoyable. They're high up there on my recommendation list.
Synopsis for Anna:
Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris--until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend.
But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?
Synopsis for To All The Boys...
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.
Angelfall by Susan Ee
This book was great with plenty of action and plot twists. It hilarious and a great read. Seriously, I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a book to read! If this book was correctly made into a movie, it would definitely be a hit.
It's been six weeks since the angels of the apocalypse destroyed the world as we know it. Only pockets of humanity remain.
Savage street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night.
When angels fly away with a helpless girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back...
GoodReads- A Book You Reccomend to Everyone
OBSIDIAN BY JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT
This book was simply fantastic. The plot of the series is great, it doesn't make aliens cheesy or embarrassing rot read about and it invigoratingly new and refreshing. It's an easy read that you'll get through in one sitting if you can. The action is spot on, as is the romance and the dialogue is down right hilarious. If you haven't read this book yet, I don't know what you've been up to but this book is seriously good stuff guys. I'll love y'all forever if you read it (and like it)
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is.
