The Chainsmokers Tag


Hey guys! Whaaaat I’m posting again and it hasn’t even been three months yet? WHO AM I?!  xD  Today I’m doing The Chainsmokers Tag created by Kat from KatReadsALot & Maria from Little Livres . I loved the questions so much – thanks for tagging me, Kat!


1A book/series that you don’t/didn’t want to end

I NEVER WANT CASSANDRA CLARE TO STOP WRITING SHADOWHUNTER BOOKS. She’s got new releases planned to last us for awhile at least, but I’m going to be so, so sad once it’s all over. I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to let go of the characters.


An upcoming book you have high expectations for 

Oh, god. Can I get through a single post without mentioning Cassie multiple times? I’m sorry guys –  predictably, my answer to this is going to have to be Lord of Shadows. Cassie’s released so many books in the Shadowhunter world at this stage that I’m really interested to see if she’ll bring something new to the table and also how she’s going to sort out the mess that is Jemma.


Beautiful Cover + Beautiful Story 

There are so many beautiful books I own that had an equally gorgeous story, but one that definitely sticks out to me is The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. It was so enchanting and also happens to be the first and only book I’ve ever read with magical realism in it.


A book you read when it was no longer trending 

So here’s an…uh, ‘interesting’ story for you. I read HP & the Deathly Hallows for the first time last year. That’s about 6 or 7 years after I read the other books. Here’s why – MY FRIEND SPOILED DEATHLY HALLOWS FOR ME. She looked up a list of characters that died in Deathly Hallows & decided it was a GREAT idea to recite them to me – needless to say, I was sufficiently traumatised that I put off reading it until years later. By that time I’d realised that I probably needed to start from the beginning again and that was FAR too daunting a task so I put it off again until last year, when I finally decided enough was enough and I couldn’t bear to hear another “But whyyyyyy haven’t you finished the HP series yet?”


A book you wish you didn’t read.

Ok, this is a hard question. Because even really bad books are an experience, right? I firmly believe in having no regrets. But I went through my Goodreads list and I guess I kind of regret reading We Were Liars by E.Lockhart. There was just SO MUCH HYPE surrounding it and I was pretty let down – it wasn’t a bad book, but honestly the ‘big plot twist’ wasn’t a huge deal for me and I didn’t even like the characters all that much so I didn’t find the ending as devastating as everyone else seemed to. I wish I could go back to still believing it’s this incredibly mind blowing, emotional read.


A book that gave you so many feels

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare – ALL. THE. FEELS.


An expensive book that you need right now

EVERY SPECIAL EDITION OF PRIDE & PREJUDICE, EVER. Also the illustrated Harry Potter books because I mean come on, can you honestly tell me that’s not on your wishlist this year?


A photogenic book 

The special edition boxed sets of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. In fact, they’re so photogenic that my bookstagram of the TMI boxed set remains one of my most liked photos despite the fact that I accidentally put the books out of order. AND NO ONE NOTICED (betcha y’all gonna go check out the photo now, though xD)


A book with lots of good reviews, you hope you’ll like it to

The Raven Boys  – seriously, I’ve even been told by a friend that it’s a ‘Ngoc’ book. It sounds like it has all the elements that normally make me fall hopelessly in love and I honestly couldn’t tell you why I still haven’t picked it up yet BUT IT’LL HAPPEN SOON, I PROMISE.


A book you stayed the night up for (maybe in tears)

Ruin & Rising by Leigh Bardugo – the only book I’ve ever pulled an all nighter for (although I almost did for The Fill In Boyfriend, too.) I actually finished it at around 5am in the morning and slept like the dead until around midday, so not only did I sacrifice a good night’s sleep for it, I skipped my favourite meal of the day, too. Now that’s true love!

I’m going to tag anyone that wants to do this because I honestly don’t know what your music tastes are but honestly, you don’t even have to listen to the Chainsmokers to do it – the questions are just universally fun!

Have a fantastic week guys and I’ll speak to you soon!

    WHAT?! That’s a horrible friend for doing that to you! They would be an ex-friend as soon as the first names rolled off their tongue. Spoiling books is morally wrong in every way! 😭 By the time you read it did you forget the list?

    Love the tag! I agree, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender was such a beautiful book with the dearest cover, I can’t get over how insanely amazing it was! AHAHAHA I’ve only read the first HP book and the questions ARE EVERYWHERE (also the spoilers, I KNOW EVERYTHING) but I’m so excited to finish reading the books! The big twist in We Were Liars didn’t exactly hit me hard either and it was a little of a let down in my opinion too unfortunately. Loved your answers and the tag!

      Ahhhhh it was such a whimsical & haunting book, and the cover is just 😍 OH NOOOOO!!! You poor thing, I can just imagine what it’d be like esp on Bookternet esp since it’s such a talked about series 😱 OMG, RIGHT?!? I’m glad I’m not the only one who felt like that, I just don’t see what the big deal is with We Were Liars. Awww thanks so much for reading, lovely! Feel free to say I tagged you if you wanna answer the questions 😋

    Oh man, I’m so sorry you got spoiled for DH! That happened to me with The Hunger Games – except it was on Tumblr haha and it’s the reason why I still haven’t finished the series. Sorry you didn’t enjoy We Were Liars. I loved it, but I definitely see your points. AND GO READ THE RAVEN CYCLE RIGHT NOW!!!!!

      Omg Tumblr is where ALL THE SPOILERS come to chill 😂 I actually got spoiled for something in Throne of Glass on Tumblr – THERE ARE JUST SOME THINGS YOU CAN’T UNSEE 😭 Ahaha it’s definitely on my priority list & I’ll probably pick it up as soon as I get back from my holiday in Jan 🙈 CAN’T WAIT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH IT 😍

    Aww I can’t believe you were purposely spoiled for Harry Potter. Yes the special edition Shadowhunter box sets are so beautiful. I’m really hope I like the Six of Crows duology. I’ve heard all about its epic heists and sassy characters and just don’t let me down. Great responses Ngoc (I approve of all the Shadowhunter responses ;D)
