#FirstDateBookTag

Sooo, we’ve been tagged in the #firstdatebooktag on Instagram by the lovely @anniewoodsauthor . Here is a longer version! You are welcome to do the tag as well!

***

💋The awkward first date (a book where something felt off): “Haunting Emma” by Lee Nichols. We liked the storyline but the way the characters reacted felt a bit superficial.

***

💋The cheap first date (a book that turned out less than expected): “Beautiful creatures” by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl. It wasn’t that the series was bad it just wasn’t as good as we’d heard it was. We had quite big expectations, so we got a little disappointed.

***

💋Well prepared first date (a book that was better than expected): “The invention of Hugo Cabret” by Brian Selznick. We only thought this was a cute quick-read but it turned to be an extremely magical and memorable book with a lot of amazing drawings. It is such a sweet story about Hugo´s life, we think everyone would like this story.

***

💋Hot but dumb (a book with a beautiful cover that was not so hot on the inside): “The start of me and you” by Emery Lord. We have to admit, we totally bought this book because of the pretty cover, which turned out to be one of the best things about the book… The story was cute but unfortunately not more than that.

***

💋Blind date (a book you picked up knowing nothing about): “The Loneliness of Distant Beings” by Kate Ling. We didn’t know anything about this book but it turned out to be amazing. We also did a review of it. http://cphreadings.dk/under-ensomme-stjerner-kate-ling/

***

💋Speed dating (a book you read fast): “Let it Snow” by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. We both absolutely adore this book and we can highly recommend it. Especially when winter comes!

***

💋The rebound (a book you read too soon after a book hangover and it kind of ruined the book for you): “Looking for Alaska” by John Green. We had a HUGE hangover when we read this book, but we´re definitly going to give it another chance soon.

***

💋Overly enthusiastic date (a book that felt like it was trying too hard): “The vampire diaries” by L. J. Smith. It was a nice series but the story felt a bit forced. Also when you watch the tv-show before reading the book you find that too much have been changed.

***

💋Humiliating to date (a book you’re embarrassed to like): You shouldn’t be embarrassed to like any kind of book! Haha… 🙂

***

💋Perfect date (a book that did everything right): “Hex Hall” by Rachel Hawkins. That series did pretty much do EVERYTHING right! You definitely have to  read it, if you haven’t yet!

xoxo,

Caroline & Johanna
