Taylor Swift’s new (and best) album, Lover, released last week and I have NOT stopped listening ever since. It’s my new favorite album of hers and my sister and I have gone back and forth on our song rankings all week long. Fingers crossed there will be a tour because I will definitely be buying a ticket!
I’ve been waiting for someone to make a book tag for this album and I was super happy when I finally saw it over on Upon The Pages! I loved the questions and couldn’t wait to try it out myself 🙂 Also, if you’re interested, I’ve included my personal Lover song ranking at the bottom of this post!
I Forgot That You Existed ↠ What’s a book you wish you forgot?
Hmm. Red Queen? I actually really enjoyed Red Queen and then I got to the second book and I was like… oh god. And then I gave up on the rest of the series because of it. So I wish I had never started.
Cruel Summer ↠ What’s your favorite book set during the summer?
We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han! The Summer Boys series has been one of my favorite series since high school and I always go back to it for comfort! Also, sidenote on Cruel Summer because how could I NOT talk about it- but this has catapulted to the top of my all-time T.S. song list. It’s INCREDIBLE. If you don’t scream-sing this song at full volume, did you even really sing it? (HE LOOKS UP GRINNING LIKE A DEVIL)
Lover ↠ What’s your favorite romance trope?
ENEMIES TO LOVERS ALL DAYYYYYYY
The Man ↠ Who’s your favorite feminist character?
Vasya from Winternight trilogy is one of my faves because she’s amaaaaaaazing. She’s so confident and powerful and I love her to pieces.
The Archer ↠ Since this song discusses being imperfect, what’s an imperfect book you love?
I had a really hard time coming up with an answer for this, but I guess I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews for One of Us is Lying, which was one of my FAVORITE books of last year. I guess I can see how some of it might not be AMAZING, but I still really love it.
I Think He Knows ↠ What character do you know very well?
Harry MF Potter, duh!
Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince ↠ Favorite book set in high school?
Recently, I really loved Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer!
Paper Rings ↠ What bookish OTP do you want to get married?
Oh gosh. I have a few top OTPs but idk if marriage is really in the cards for them… it’s kind of cheating to say Jude and Cardan though, right? *wink wink*
Cornelia Street ↠ What’s a book set near or where you live?
The Heroes of Olympus series (which I’m currently re-reading)! Some of the books take place all around the Bay Area and it’s so cool to hear about spots I know of! Camp Jupiter is literally set right behind where I work!
Death by a Thousand Cuts ↠ Who’s your favorite character who’s been through a lot?
I feel like all of my favorite characters are traumatized, lol. But the first people who came to mind are Holland from Shades of Magic and Finnick from Hunger Games.
London Boy ↠ Listen, I can’t help it. Who’s your favorite British character?
Harry’s my all-time favorite character sooooooo yeah.
Soon You’ll Get Better ft. the Dixie Chicks ↠ What’s a book that’s made you incredibly sad?
The Book Thief makes me cry EVERY. TIME.
False God ↠ Since this song talks about her relationship being greater than them, name your ALL TIME favorite book?
A Conjuring of Light! So much perfection in that book.
You Need to Calm Down ↠ What’s your favorite LGBT+ book?
The Song of Achilles!
Afterglow ↠ What’s a book you think you rated too harshly the first time you read it?
OK the first time I read ADSOM I rated it three stars and i hate myself for it so now its appropriately rated at 4 🙂
ME! ↠ What’s your favorite uplifting book?
Geez, do I not read happy books? I can’t think of anything. I finished Sorry I’m Late, I Didn’t Want to Come by Jessica Pan a few weeks ago, and it’s been helpful in getting me out of my comfort zone a bit, so I guess that one for now!
It’s Nice to Have a Friend ↠ What bookish character do you wish was your best friend?
Miss Hermione Jean Granger!
Daylight ↠ Since this song is already underrated, what’s your favorite underrated book?
(This song IS underrated!! I’ve been seeing it at the bottom of people’s rankings and I’m like HOW?!?!?!) I always answer Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, because I LOVE that book and never see anyone talk about it! Also, The Goddess War series by Kendare Blake! LOVE those books!
