HI GUYS!

One day, we discussing whether or not we should do a tag together (the dinner party thing), but I (Bee) didn’t want to do that one because I wouldn’t know who to pick. So we decided to make our own tag! And since we all love animated movies, we picked our favorite ones and here we are! Yay, a new tag is born!

A Book wih a Sad Love Story (1)

Bee

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is the only one that comes to mind here. Because duhh.

Liza

This one is not YA, but it’s one of the saddest books I’ve ever read in my life and I cried SO much; Me Before You by Jojo Moyes will break your heart.

Rachel

My gut instinct is to go with the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. It’s more of a paranormal/werewolf story but I think it’s also one of the most beautiful, heart-wrenching love stories out there. I have, personally, never had my heart so truly broken as with this series… in the best possible way, of course.

A Book with a Great Friendship

Bee

AHH TOOTHLESS! <3 Sorry… I just had to… Okay, ehm… Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas. Because Ollie & Moritz are so precious. <3

Liza

One of my favorite books of friendship turned love is Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg.  Macallan and Levi are the best of friends for years and are so hesitant and insecure of being in love.  So good.

Rachel

Okay. I’ve changed by answers for this question too many times to count, but Will, Halt and Horace from the Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagn wins. Damn, I love this series and this trio so, so much! No matter what shenanigans go down in this series, those three are there for each others. There is so many things I wish I could say, but I think The Royal Ranger (the last book in the series) really shows the lengths these three go for each other.

Honorable mention: Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead – I nearly choose this series because Rose, Lissa and Adrian. How can I not?

A Book with a Great Message

Bee

I’m gonna pick Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin. It had a great message and it’s AH-MAY-ZING.

Liza

Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White is a fantasy magical book, but it has a great message of love regardless of origin, race and station.

Rachel

I just finished The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes and *flails, screams and passes out with enthusiasm*. This is such an amazing book and with such important themes of identity, power/leadership, freedom of choice, feminism, religion and friendship. It’s written so, so beautifully and made me think and weep and think some more. It was incredible.

 

A Book with an Adventure in Space

Bee

I mean… How can I not go with Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman??

Liza

I have an EPIC adventure and of the the BEST series ever.  No, I’m not exaggerating, even though I still have to read the last book.  Red Rising by Pierce Brown is an incredible saga of doing what’s right regardless of the cost.

Rachel

*gulps* I really, really dislike space. It freaks me out. I purposely avoid sci-fi books for that reason, and only have a few books to choice from. I guess I could for This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner but I don’t feel that attached to it so I think I have to say The Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl, the underrated but completely hilarious and childhood-memory-induced sequel to Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.

A Book with an Unlikely Romance

Bee

Without giving away any spoilers… A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. You’ll know it when you read it. I shipped it a whole lot, but I never saw it coming.

Liza

Radiance by Grace Draven is another adult book that involves an arranged marriage that turns into salvation.

Rachel

Maybe “unlikely romance” isn’t the right word, but I don’t think the couple from Of Beauty and Beast expected their relationship to grow to what it did, nor did I really, but I’m certainly not complaining.

A Book with Great Sibling-Relationship

Bee

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine! Because I love Lorelai & Leo together.

Liza

Sea of Shadows, the first book in Kelley Armstrong’s Age of Shadows series introduces us to Moria and Ashyn, twins that are as different as they are part of each other.

Rachel

I had to find some way to slip in Night Owls, didn’t I!? But this book has great siblings relationships all-round. Bex and her brother have a hilarious, realistic relationships, but Jack and his sister steal the spotlight. I won’t say too much, but it is beautiful.

A book with a Great Parent-child Relationship

Bee

The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner! I ADORED the relationship between Lydia & her dad.

Liza

I’ve always found the relationship between Anna and Patti from Wendy Higgins Sweet series to be so precious. Anna is adopted, which makes it even more special, there’s no sneaking around or lying, they are on the same team and work together.  Always.

Rachel

Harriet’s father and stepmother from the Geek Girl series is fantastic. I honestly love the way that they support Harriet no matter what. Her dad is such a goofball (but hilarious) and I loved watching Annabel and Harriet’s relationship grow across the series – she can be serious at times, but Annabel knows exactly how to be a fantastic mother.

Add A book with a great villain

Bee

Winter by Marissa Meyer because YEEGADS, hi Levana!! She was an amazing villain throughout the whole series, but the last one really upped it all a notch.

Liza

I’m going with a classic here: President Snow from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  Because he was a nasty piece of work!

Rachel

Damn guys, you stole both of mine! *pouts* Just kidding. Levanna would have been my first choice though too because Fairest was just *open and closes mouth silently*… amazing, really! It was kind of the only book in the series I truly enjoy (please don’t stab me with pitchfork, fangirls) so my new choice has to be Jackal from the Blood of Eden series. He’s simply the most witty, snarky, hilarious villains ever, and just one of the most well-rounded characters. Definitely one of the highlights of the series!

A Book with an “Incredible” Family

Bee

On The Fence by Kasie West. Because I love Charlie & her family!

Liza

I’m going with Audrey’s family from Finding Audrey from Sophie Kinsella because even though they were a bit dysfunctional, they really cared about each other.  A lot.

Rachel

I feel conflicted saying this (you’d know why if you’ve read this book), but I think Olivia’s family in Where the Memories Lie by Sibel Hodge is pretty incredible. They’re super close, and definitely supportive. I don’t want to say anything more… #crytpicanswers

A Book that Gives You ALL the Feels

Bee

Hmm… Whichever book should I pick? Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli of course! AHAHAH you thought I wouldn’t use this one, didn’t you? Wrong! I shall never stop talking about this book.

Liza

Never doubted you Bee 😉

All the feels you say… I can pick from Dessen or Forman, Stiefvater or many others.  On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta  is a gem that has all the feels. ALL of them!

Rachel

I’m sorry but Harry Potter wins this category everytime. Yes, I’m one of those fangirls that grew up on the series and would not be the same person I am today without having had this series in my life. It gave my everything, and I will never not be a proud and loud Potterhead.

    I have started the Beastly Tales series by M.J. Haag and it is basically an Adult version of Beauty and the Beast. Rachel, for books that involve space you might like to try the works of Monica Hughes. Her works where written a while ago but are golden YA books.

  2. Becca

    So fun!! Love all of the categories and your picks! Of course Bee had to throw Simon in there somewhere 😀

  3. I LOVE THIS TAG! It also reminds me of so many books that I can’t wait to read: Me Before You, Jellicoe Road and Of Beast and Beauty just to name a few. I need to finish the the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, I read the first a long time ago but can’t remember much so I’d need to reread it first LOL.

  4. I was actually a little worried about you, Bee, because IT TOOK YOU SO LONG TO MENTION SIMON’S I WAS BEGINNING TO WONDER IF YOU WERE OKAY. XDD😂 Ahem. This is so fun, you peoples, and thank you for the tag!!
    I LOVE THE GARRETTS.<3 And also Levana was an amazing villain, but I think Snow wins for me too. I just…argh.. I HATE HIM.
    I'm seriously so excited to read The Serpent King. *happy dance*
    And omg, Bee, you liked The Shadow Queen?! Another reason I need that one too. xD OKAY SO I WANT TO READ ALL THE BOOKS OF EVER, BUT THAT'S NOT UNATTAINABLE RIGHT?

      Ahahaha I’M SORRY I WORRIED YOU! <3 And yes, I did! I loved The Shadow Queen and I'm so excited for you to read The Serpent King too because omg that book.

      Of course it is! YOU CAN DO IT CAIT!

  5. Omg I love this tag!!! It’s so amazing that you guys created it. I have a feeling I’ll be repeating some of these in mine because even before reading your titles, they made their way into my head. Great minds think alike 😉 I so agree on the sibling relationship of Jack and his sister from The Anatomical Shape of a Heart (Night Owls) as well as The Shadow Queen (Bee, THE FEELS!!!)
    Yes to Symptoms of Being Human for having a fantastic message, not only to the LGBTQ community but also in general. On the Fence is so family-oriented!! I read these two in February so they are very fresh in my mind. I’ll have to look through my reviews so I can actually find other titles lol Amazing picks!!
