Today, I will be doing the Ultimate Recommendations book tag. I saw this tag over on The Bookworm Girl, and thought I would give it a go myself.
1 – A book from one of your favourite genres
You all know that I love a good thriller, and that it is my favourite and most read genre, but Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski really stood out for me. It was so different to anything I had ever read before and I can’t recommend it highly enough!
2 – A short book
I read Sour Candy by Kealan Patrick Burke about 3 years ago, and it was actually one of the very first books I reviewed on my blog! It’s a little novella that packs a huge punch. I’ve been wanting to pick up more books by the author ever since.
3 – A book-to-screen adaption
You would be lying if you said you didn’t think The Lord of the Rings was one of the BEST book to screen adaptations to ever exist! It is complete perfection.
4 – A book outside of your comfort zone
Fantasy isn’t really a genre I read much of, especially the contemporary type, mainly because I feel much more comfortable in the dark thriller/horror side of things. However, I recently read Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn for a @The_WriteReads blog tour, and I loved it!
5 – A book series
The book series that I will ALWAYS recommend to absolutely everyone is the Vampirates series by Justin Somper. This is my favourite series of all time, and really doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
6 – A standalone
My favourite book of 2021 was the standalone thriller Watch Her Fall by Erin Kelly. This book was fantastic, and I loved every second of it. I am always telling people to read this book!
7 – A book you don’t talk about enough
I read The Book of Uriel by Elyse Hoffman for a The Write Reads blog tour, and I was blown away by it. But, for some reason I don’t seem to talk about it much, when I really should! This was unlike any WWII historical fiction I have ever read.
8 – Your “staple” book
My “staple” book has to be a twisty thriller, that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and Twisted by Steve Cavanagh is the perfect example of that. Actually, all of Steve Cavanagh’s books are perfect examples of that, which is why he is one of my favourite authors.
9 – Books that got you into reading
The books that really got me in to reading are the Vampirates books, but especially Demons of the Ocean (book 1 of the series). This book opened my eyes to the joy of reading, and was my first real experience of being completely swept away and escaping in to another world. To this day, I adore this book so much, and it will always hold a very special place in my heart.
