Spotify Book Tag

When I was blog hopping I spotted Book Hooked Nook's Spotify Book Tag and it looked so much fun that I couldn't resist giving it a go. I'm going to make it a little more challenging and only use books that I've read this year or are on my 2019 TBR.

Book Hooked Nook's Spotify Book Tag banner

Hit Rewind: a book you go back to again and again? 

Gilded Cage by Vic James. I love the world, the possibilities, the terrifying realness of the alternative universe.

Romantic Ballads: a book that gives you all those fluttery feels?

Romancing The Inventor by Gail Carriger. I'm a sucker for this author's books and the marvellous steampunk world she created with The Parasol Protectorate. Both of the Supernatural Society books are fantastic romances and give me the warm fuzzies.

Release Radar: a new release book you are excited for?

Wilder Girls by Rory Power. I've heard amazing things about this book from so many people that I'm now super excited to get my hands on it.

Discover Weekly: a book you haven’t read yet but want to discover? 

The Devouring Grey by Christine Lynn Herman. There is so much buzz and love for this book, and I can't wait to grab a copy next week at the Waterstones Newcastle event.

Alone Again: your fave book genre to read on your own?

Romance - I'm a sucker for romance and utterly adore the genre. I'd say over half of my kindle is just Romance.

Alternative: an indie book or author everyone should read!

A Hidden Hope by Laura Ambrose. It's just the MOST ADORABLE f/f romance, filled with passion, and love, and a hint of enemies to lovers. Yes please.

Cheesy Hits: a book full of cheese that you just love?

The Paper and Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie. It's just so delightful and happy and lovely, and I love the comfort of the predictability.

Summer Hits: a book you re-read every summer?

Darkmere by Helen Maslin. It's like an episode of Skins set in a haunted mansion and it's all kinds of excellent. I reach for this book every summer.

Power Hour: an empowering feminist book or character you adore?

Perfect by Cecelia Ahern. This is a much more broadly feminist book, with a focus on equality for all against a brutal regime. For some reason it took me years to actually pick it up, but when I did I read it in a day.

All Out 10’s: list ten banging books!


  1. Yay thank you for doing my tag! I have Perfect on my kindle so I'm excited to get to it soon!

  2. Looks like such a fun tag to do. Added it to my TO-DO-LIST which is endless!

  3. Absolutely loved your answers! I shall do this tag as well!

  4. Such a fun book tag! Lovely blog post, Cora!😊

  5. I can’t wait to read Wilder Girls either! Managed to win a copy at YALC - yay! ��

  6. This is such a fun book tag! I am hoping to do it soon!

  7. Love this tag! I'm also really excited to read Wilder Girls

  8. I love this tag and you've included some great books! I can't wait to complete this tag too :) So excited for Wilder Girls!

  9. I recently found The Gilded Cage for a dollar at a discount store and I immediately picked it up. I am planning on reading it soon! I love how highly you speak of it.

  10. This is an awesome tag and I loved your answers, I'm hoping to get around to reading Gilded Cage this month or next with any luck, I'm so excited! I might have to try this tag myself.

    1. Ahh I hope you enjoy it, it's a favourite series of mine.

  11. So excited for Wilder Girls too! Love this tag! :)

  12. the devouring gray is lovely, i hope that you enjoy it and are able to get to it soon

  13. Brilliant tag Cora and thank you for tagging me! I have to agree that Devouring Grey is certainly a book I am intrigued by especially after hearing so much about it! I love that you love romance too Cora cause often as a genre it gets dismissed so easily!

  14. I definitely need to put Gilded Cage on my 'to read' list. I haven't heard of it before but if you'll read it again&again, it must be good! Your description of the book sounds very convincing, too. Loved reading your answers here, I may have to do my own post! x

  15. I love this idea, too. I'm going to do this on my blog. I've been listening to a lot of Victorian horror novels on Spotify.
