The Grishaverse Book Tag

In celebration of Shadow and Bone airing on Netflix this Friday, I thought I would give this Grishaverse themed book tag a go. I found this tag on Berries and Books blog, the tag was originally created by Rebecca Books on YouTube.

Kaz Brekker; A book that you shouldn’t judge by the cover.

Sistersong by Lucy Holland, this book has kind of drawn the short straw here because it doesn’t have an ugly cover at all, but majority of the books I’ve read this year have been stunning.

Nina Zenik; A book that made you feel empowered.

Loveless by Alice Oseman, an #OwnVoices novel about an aromantic and asexual main character.

Inej Ghafa; A book with a good balance of character and plot.

The Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley, you can read my review here but this book is simply phenomenal, I’m already convinced it will be my favourite book of the year.

Alina Starkov; A unique book, one that is unlike anything you’ve ever read.

The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson, a debut novel with a cross-dimensional adventure and a powerful examination of identity, privilege, and belonging.

Mal Oretzev; A book that always sticks with you.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, I recently re-read this book as I’ve thought of it constantly since reading it for the first time a couple of years ago, and the re-read was just as amazing.

The Darkling; A book with a dark plot/ story line.

Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco, a brutal murder and an intoxicating romance with a demon prince.

Jesper Fahey; A book that people always seem to leave out.

The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar, my personal favourite YA novel of 2020 but it’s not a book I often see on anyone’s TBR or in photos.

Wylan Van Eck; A book that wasn’t what it seemed at first.

The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles, I thought this novel would focus mostly on WWII in Paris but it was so much more than that, particularly due to the dual timeline and added perspective of young Lily in Montana.

Matthias Helvar; A book that was bad at first but turned out good.

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Morena-Garcia, another book that’s drawn the short straw as I’ve mostly read very good books recently! Mexican Gothic wasn’t bad at all, but I found the first half slightly boring in comparison to the second half.

Nikolai Lantsov; A witty book.

The Extraordinaries by T. J. Klune, a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves.
