How I choose my books Tag

I found this book tag at Paper Eyed Girl and thought it would be a lot of fun!  Its kind of a two-in-one tag where you have to find certain books on your selves and then explain what made you choose them!

Find a book on your shelves or e-reader with a blue cover. What made you want to pick up this book?


I have lots and lots of blue covers and I couldn’t pick just one!

The Fault in Our Stars – My sister recommended this to me and she rarely reads so I figured I would give it a try.

The Selection – This one just sounded awesome.  Sort of like a Cinderella rags-to-riches story with some competition thrown in!

Endure – I picked this one up because it was the next book in the Defy series and I had already read the first two

Harriet The Spy – I haven’t actually read this book yet, but I loved the movie as a kid!

Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy, but did. Why did you want to read it in the first place?


I wasn’t sure I was going to like this because it seemed super dark and I don’t like stories where girls fall in love blindly with cruel men, but there was so much hype surrounding it that I was curious and ended up loving it!

Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick a book at random. How did you discover this book?


My mom tried to sell this, along with a bunch of other books, at our garage sale.  The ones that didn’t sell I went through and picked out anything that looked even remotely good.  I haven’t read this one yet, but I have read a good chunk of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.

Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you. What did you think of it?


Phil recommended these to me and I absolutely love them! I can’t wait for the 9th volume to come out!

Pick a book that you discovered through YouTube/book blogs. Did it live up to the hype?


I know I used this one already but its the only book I could think of for either category! I loved this book!

Find a book on your shelves or e-reader with a one-word title. What drew you to this book?


I bought this in a little coastal bookstore.  I had never heard of an “Advanced Reader Copy” at that point.  I thought it meant the writing was more advanced and I was super confused why they would publish two reading levels for the same book.  The owner kindly explained to me what it was and I was intrigued.  I later learned that selling and buying ARCs is a no-no, but I only paid $4 for it and ended up really liking it.

What book did you discover through a film/TV adaptation?


I loved this movie and watched it a bunch of times before I learned it was a book.  Of course, I had to get the book immediately! I loved it!

Think of your all-time favorite book(s). When did you read these and why did you pick them up in the first place?


Pride and Prejudice! I first read P&P in high school.  I think it was my sophomore year.  I fell in love with it!  I have a special shelf dedicated to Jane Austen books and P&P spin-offs.


This was a fun tag! I like searching though my bookshelves so find books that fit each category 🙂  I am not going to tag anyone but please play if you want to! Let me know if you do, I would love to see your answers!


  1. This was a really fun tag! I just started The Cruel Prince, and I’m hoping it’s as good as everyone is saying!

    Also, The Section is so good! Not an all-time favorite, but definitely entertaining

      1. I like it! The prologue definitely has me really interested, but the way the author describes the setting is a bit slower. And I hate Cardan so much it’s making it hard to read 😂

    1. Princess Bride is one of my favorite books so I definitely recommend it! I really liked Saga but beware it is very mature at times (full frontal nude tv headed men) I don’t have a problem with it, but I was surprised. So just don’t leave it where any kiddos might have access to it 😉
