The 2017 Year In Review Book Tag

Posted January 2, 2018 by Jana in Book Tag / 4 Comments

This book tag was created by A Booktube Book. The image was created by Lindsey Reads.

I love doing book tags, and this one seemed like a fun way to wrap up 2017! The creator of the tag has encouraged us to match up books with current events. What a fun way to remember the year. :) I did my best and didn’t use the same book for every single author, so… that was hard because there were many books that fit each prompt.

1. First Ever Female Doctor Who:

Favorite Female Protagonist

 

Veronica Mars in The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas. I loved her in the show, so there was never a question as to whether or not I would love her in the books!

 

2. GCC Cuts Toes with Qatar:

An Author You Cut Ties With

April Henry. Technically I cut ties with her sometime last year when I finished and really disliked another book of hers. However, I had decided that SO MANY TIMES and for some reason I kept getting sucked back in! This year I had the opportunity to review another one of her books and this time I refrained. That’s how I know I’ve officially given up.

 

3. La La Land Oscar Mix-Up:

A Book That surprised You

 

Hunted by Meagan Spooner. I was really surprised by how much this book stuck with me after I finished reading it. It’s a very beautiful book, and I loved it. But I read it almost a year ago and still remember how it made me feel. That’s surprising to me.

 

4. Hurricanes and Earthquakes:

A Book That Rocked Your World

 

Till Death by Jennifer Armentrout. It was amaaaaaazing in every sense of the word, and I wish I could read it again for the first time.

 

5. Louvre Abu Dhabi:

Favorite Book Cover Art

 

Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I love this beautiful cover, and I love this beautiful book!

 

6. Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi Sells for $450M:

A Take-My-Money Book

 

I absolutely HAD TO HAVE the pretty UK Harry Potter hardcovers. They’re amazing!

 

7. Total Eclipse:

A Sequel That Overshadows the First Book

 

Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco. I wanted to pick this book for favorite female protagonist as well because Audrey Rose is amazing, but I’m doing my best to just pick one book per prompt! I LOVED HPD so much more than I loved Stalking Jack the Ripper. The series just keeps getting better and better!

 

8. Muslim Ban:

Favorite Diverse Book

 

The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill is beautiful!

 

9. Italy Doesn’t Qualify for World Cup:

Most Disappointing Book

 

The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye broke my heart. I loved The Crown’s Game so much and was super excited for this sequel, but it was absolutely not what I wanted.

 

10. Prince Harry Engaged:

Favorite Ship

 

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman in The Hating Game by Sally Thorne give me life.

 

11. Star Wars: The Last Jedi:

Most Anticipated Book

 

Escaping from Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper #3) by Kerri Maniscalco!! I can’t wait!!! (This is not the official cover, just the image Kerri used when she announced the title.)

  1. I do like this book tag! Oh my gosh, I think I have to have the pretty UK Harry Potter covers too! SO pretty! For A Sequel That Overshadows the First Book I would definitely pick The Piper’s Price (The Neverland Wars #2). I’d have to think longer on the others. I might do this next week!

  2. Those Harry Potter covers are probably my favourites, although I do like my own covers which are white with minimalist illustrations on them. But the art on your covers is beautiful and I love the gold lettering. The Prisoner of Azkaban is probably my favourite cover, which is appropriate because it’s probably my favourite of the series.
    Great post!
