What's a book you wouldn’t mind being associated with? ❤
It’s time to talk about favourites! And I have been trying to define that - what makes a favourite a favourite? 🤔 To me, all my favourite books are the ones that made me feel something. Be it the plot that had me invested, or the characters that I thought were deserving of a happy ending - my favourites always have a point in the book that made me emotional. They're the books that as soon as I put them down I'll want to pick up again. They are the books that I can reread every year without getting bored by them.
When I think of favourites that way, it’s not hard to pick mine. 🥰
A Court of Thorns and Roses is a series I once picked up purely for the pretty cover. Yes, I’m a cover buyer. 🙊 The first book had me intrigued, surely, yet not too invested. Now I realise it was all a great set-up for the second book. BECAUSE GOODNESS. I loved seeing a totally different side of Prythian, meeting the supposed-to-be bad guys, and realising that everything is a matter of perspective. Honestly, if you love a rich fantasy world, a slow-but-steady build-up and characters with interesting back stories and relationships – this one is for you! ❤
And then there's Six of Crows. Where do I start? 😱 I always talk about this duology, yet I always try to say as little as possible. These are books you should go in blank and just experience. 🥰 This series makes me laugh, makes me cry, makes me want to hurl it across the room and yet hug it at the same time. If you like a slow build-up, do read the (also lovely!) Shadow&Bone series first though! They're set in the same universe – yet with different characters, but chronologically set before SoC. ❤

! My name is Tamara & I’m a 28 year old bookworm from the Netherlands! I adore reading and I spend a lot of time talking about books here on instagram. 🥰 I really enjoy collecting books, and I am often found reorganising my shelves as I’m always running out of space. 🙈 I would love to be a BOTM rep; I love the special care you give to your editions with gorgeous sprayed & stencilled edges, and having them signed by the authors. ❤
