Hi everyone! I wasn’t tagged for this but today I’m going to be doing the Reputation book tag! It was originally created by Tulipswift on Youtube(who, btw, I just started watching and she is so adorable!! I love her hair so much omg)

Your favorite first book in a series
While this isn’t like my all-time fave first book in a series, THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE is a really amazing first book that is super fun and super awesome.
The biggest endgame you’ve ever rooted for.
Honestly? CHAOLAENA. Okay? That pairing makes me not okay I need it in my life yet it isn’t THIS ISN’T OKAY.

A book you spoiled for someone.
I can’t think of a specific book, but I know I’ve spoiled far too many for my sister by accident(she puts up with me. I love her!!) One time I fake spoiled a book for someone so they would stop bothering me to know what happened, then when they got to the end they were even more shocked by the plot twist! Fake spoiling is my fave.

The most embarrassing/unlikely book you were crazy for.
While don’t think you should shame people for what they read or be ashamed to love any book ever, these books were my favorite as a kid and it was embarrassing because my siblings used to tease me about it.
A book you fell in love with from the first page.
Everless!! I know I’m talking about this book a lot lately but it was SO good and SO spellbinding and I love it SO MUCH AHHHH

A character that rose up from the dead. (like figuratively. Like they came back 2.0)
I’m taking this as a character that you didn’t love but then they came through and you were like OMG I LOVE YOU NOW… I’m having a hard time coming up with one! This has happened for me in a few tv shows but idk about books.
𝕾𝖔 𝖎𝖙 𝕲𝖔𝖊𝖘…
A series that made everything else disappear.
Honestly it’s probably the Selection books or like any Tamara Leigh books. They’re so easy to read and so fun and when I’m reading them, they aptly fit to this because they do really make everything else disappear.
A character so gorgeous they make you want to sink and drown and die.
I don’t think I’ve ever gotten that bad over a character. I’ve definitely had a few real life crushes that made me feel like that, but to an extent I know that what I’m reading is fiction. Also I’m the type of person who won’t steal someone’s boyfriend, SO, etc., so if the guy I passingly like in a book is in a relationship or I ship them with the MC or someone else I know that’s a line I don’t want to cross. I think the only characters I’ve gotten close to feeling like that about are Will Herondale and Rhysand tbh.
A book or series you abandoned.
I try to finish whatever series’ I start but sometimes I start them and don’t finish them like ever even if I want to. So even though I didn’t actively choose to abandon this series, the one that comes to mind is THE WINNER’S CURSE trilogy. I loved the first two books but haven’t been able to find the time to finish them!

Your OTP. (One true pair!)
Oh, this question. Is it multiple choice? It feels like it is. Idk y’all. I can’t choose. I love Tessa and Will, Kell and Lila, Chaol and Celaena, and like a dozen others. So instead I’m going to choose the OTP from my WIP because I’ve been outlining and the romance is SO slowburn but I’m so excited for it and I LOVE THEM

A character you would stick by through an avalanche.
Honestly? I’d want to stick by someone I know would do the same for me. So probably Tessa Grey. But I would also stick by the following beautiful gals: Hadley from NOW IS EVERYTHING, Dara from THESE THINGS I’VE DONE, Molly from SAVING RED, Vicky from HOW TO DISAPPEAR, Hermione from HARRY POTTER AND THE MANY BOOKS THAT TAKE UP LOTS OF SPACE, Arsinoe and Mirabella from THREE DARK CROWNS, Mira from BEFORE SHE IGNITES, Asha from THE LAST NAMSARA, Maya, Grace, and Joaquin from FAR FROM THE TREE, Kell, Lila, and Rhy from the SHADES OF MAGIC books, Nikolai, Pasha and Vika from THE CROWN’S GAME, and like a ton others but I don’t want to make you stay here all day so I’ll shut up.
Characters you don’t want to be best friends. (wink wink)
Have I talked about Chaolaena enough for this post already? Probably. Will I talk about them again. Yes, definitely. Chaol and Celaena should not be best friends they should be dating I love them they’re wonderful JLKSJWLQKDJNWDMK

a book you physically ripped or damaged.
I try to keep my books in super good condition now–I use bookmarks(no more corner folding! tween Lucy was a heathen okay), I try not to put them in situations where they could be destroyed. However… tween Lucy destroyed countless books. I mourn the poor babies that were harmed(book babies not real babies I’m not a bad person I promise). The first one that comes to mind is this beautiful, collector’s edition of the CHRONICLES OF NARNIA. It was hardcover, illustrated, had a bookmark attached. I read it once, and the cover was accidentally ripped off and the book destroyed I’M SORRY OKAY. Also one time I borrowed ELDEST from my sister and left it beside my bed which was under a window and it rained and the rain blew into the window and destroyed the book. Should I go to hell now? Probably. FORGIVE ME I LOVE YOU BOOKS.

A book/series you finally finished this year.
Since this tag was created in 2017, I assume this question has to do with 2017 so I’ll answer it in kind. I FINALLY finished the Shades of Magic series last year which makes me a successful human obviously.

A book-related memory you will always hold on to.
I have so many book-related memories I’ll treasure forever, honestly. Books have made up my life in so many ways, helping me process events, conquer fears, and calm anxiety. I think I’ll always just hold onto what books represent to me–a safe haven, one I’m always welcome in no matter what happens.
MY FAVORITE REPUTATION SONG is…. *drumroll*
Probably New Years Day! I love that one so much. It’s so very… Taylor, and I love the feel of it, like she’s sitting down, how undressed and raw and open the song feels. The feel of it, the feel that the lyrics give, the dream built with it… it’s everything I want in love and more.
