The Superlatives Book Tag

I was tagged by Kelly from Kelly's Rambles to do The Superlatives Book Tag! This was a really fun tag, and one I want to come back to at some point, so I'm going to do it specifically for books I've read this year. Which also makes it a wee bit more of a challenge.

The Superlatives Book Tag

Most Likely To Be In The Movies: The Book That Would Make The Best Movie


The Extinction Trials by SM Wilson

This is probably the 2018 release I've reread the most. It is absolutely excellent and also DINOSAURS and who doesn't want an excellent story with dinosaurs in a movie?

Biggest Drama Queen/King: The Most (Overly) Dramatic Book Or Character


You Only Live Once by Jess Vallance

Gracie's drama and over-reactions had me in stitches! She is just So Much and so excellent and funny to read, and her dramas are always overblown.

Best Dressed: The Book With The Best Cover


Clean by Juno Dawson

Honestly this cover is probably the most gorgeous cover ever. It's rose gold foil. Minimalist and striking with a pale syringe. So shiny I could stare at it for hours.

Most Creative: The Book With The Most Unique Plot, Characters, & Structure


Floored by Sara Barnard,  Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson, Eleanor Wood 

Seven authors, seven years, one relatively short book. And yet It Works. It works so well. I've reread it around three times already.

Most Popular: The Book With The Most Ratings On Goodreads


City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

This. Book. Honestly I have tried so many times in the past to read it and I've DNF'd because I just didn't enjoy it. So this year I decided I was going to do it. and I did. I listened to the audiobook. And I wish I hadn't, because I still didn't like it.

Most Likely To Succeed: The Book That Is Going To Be Appreciated For Many Years To Come


The Poppy War by RF Kuang

This book was so brutal that even four months on I grit my teeth at the thought of it. But honestly, it was a truly outstanding GrimDark fantasy.

Class Clown: The Book That Made You Laugh Out Loud


Royals by Rachel Hawkins

Royals is excellent for a lot of reasons, but mostly because of how much it made me laugh. It is absolutely hilarious and would make an excellent Netflix rom-com.

Most Improved: The Book That Started Off Slow, But Really Picked Up


Ascension by Victor Dixen

I feel like I'm cheating here, as it was only the first two chapters that were a little slow, but I wanted to feature Ascension somewhere in this list because I thought it was amazing, and the pace just keeps on building as the story progresses.

Cutest Couple: Cutest Couple In A Book


Light Years by Kass Morgan

I have a thing for forbidden romances. And I couldn't get enough of Orelia's romance in Light Years, even if it's visited so rarely. I am here for this highly inappropriate ship.

Biggest Heartbreaker: The Book That Broke Your Heart


There were many ways and reasons that this book broke my heart, but the biggest of all was that it was all real. People had actually experienced such awful things in their lives. And I was a mess of tears reading.




So that's it, the Superlatives book tag!

I'm tagging in:

  1. Oh, this is a really cute tag! I love seeing these. I don't think I've heard of most of these, so I'm going to have to check them out. :)

  2. I'm looking forward to giving YOLO a go and meeting Gracie,and getting to Royals at some point as well. I thought Floored worked incredibly well too, and was also wary of there being so many perspectives too. Thank you for tagging me!
