Bonjour our friends!! We were nominated by cat-lover Joana Duarte @ Book Needers. SHE HAS A CAT!! …We want a cat…😞😞 Anyways go check out her blog, she writes super cool stuff and it’s always fun to read ’em!! And she has a CAT!! She practically has the full package of a super booklover – Books, blog, and CATS!!
*short story alert*
We actually have a funny (well…not that funny) story about cats (when we were younger of course) – When our beautiful mother was hanging up the washing in the garden, we being the mischevious twins we were (probs still are 😉) went outside and played with a stray cat! Sooo we played and played and then got tired of course – so we dosed off outside…with the cat fast asleep in between us!
Our mother wasn’t happy! Our mother picked us up by our collar (?) and into the bath tub…
We didn’t even get to say bye…😢😢

Let us begin this cat business!!! XD
[We put links to the Goodreads profile of the books mentioned down below]
PURR – AS CATS DO THIS WHEN THEY’RE HAPPY OR RELAXED, WHAT IS THE BOOK THAT MAKES YOU HAPPIEST OR RELAXED?
The world that Rick Riordan has built up, for us readers is absolutely captivating. These books have a permanent slot in our hearts. All things mystical, fictional and adventurous can be found in these books that we were fortunate to be blessed with from dear Uncle Rick. These books are the pure definition of happiness and relaxation!!
SLEEP – WHAT IS A BOOK THAT PUT YOU TO SLEEP OR WAS JUST BORING?
Well, where to begin….we don’t like to be those people (who say bad things about books)….buuuut for us these books really did put us to sleep – we mean no offense if any taken. Stories are meant to be engraved into our minds and making us lose sleep (like a lot of sleep), but these books we’ve mentioned just has no real action. For us, If books were a volcano they should be active and ready to erupt… however, these books were very dormant. If we were to describe the Shiver series storyline (when it was a trilogy) in a few words it would be ‘A girl, a guy, and wolves’. We are sure that you can see from those words how generic and predictable the book is. Disappointment is what we feel…it’s true what they say don’t judge a book by its cover ( BTW the cover was b-e-a-utiful).
Evermore was undoubtedly one of the most unsatisfying books that I, Tanya have read – 2 books in and I DNFed the series. And guess what, I feel no regret 😁.
Now what we want from a book, is to have many twists and turns that if we were told to describe it, it would be the most difficult task bestowed upon us as there really isn’t any existing words to describe such a beautiful, emotion-wrecking masterpieces. So…basically, a rollercoaster ride transporting you to the unknown…is this too much to ask? 😞
TWITCH WHILE DREAMING – HAVE YOU EVER DREAMT OF A BOOK YOU READ?
This book is a cute edition to our souls!! This book makes us daydream as well as night..dream? Does that make sense?
For our Angelfall review – click here.
Honourable mention: Sarah J. Maas books – we basically live in the worlds she has created…so it’s not actually dreaming per say 😉 😉.
SEEMS TO PLAY NICE…UNTIL THE CLAWS ARE OUT – WHICH BOOK HAD THE BIGGEST PLOT TWIST?
When we first read the book we were not expecting to find out that the maze was created to help find a cure to a disease that has made people into zombie-like people. There are many plot twists within this science fiction series that fed our book-consumed souls. This book has its flaws, but don’t all books??
CUDDLES – WHICH BOOK CHARACTER WOULD YOU GIVE A HUG TO?
Liam is practically a cinnamon roll. While reading the book we basically imagined him as a physically, edible cinnamon roll. And of course, the normal thing to do before eating a warm cinnamon roll 🤤 …you give it a hug?? hehe 🤗 🤗
Kenji is without a doubt the most lovable character in the Shatter Me series. More importantly, we would like to be his friend and have that cute, fun friendship that he has with Juliette. Hopefully, in the 4th book (when it’s released), we will have a clearer insight into Kenji’s backstory. WE WANT MOREE!! 🤓 🤓
CATNIP – WHAT’S A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAVE WARM AND FUZZY FEELS?
PATCH! PATCH! PATCH!
He is full of fuzzy feels!! This brings back memories of the good ol’ times.

CAT BREEDS – WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS?
We too have too many – thus will have to steal the idea of choosing a genre(s) instead, from Joana (who stole from Mandy) 😜 😜.
Young Adult (YA)
THE VET’S OFFICE – YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BOOK:
We guess…the books that put us to sleep (i.e boring books) are also kinda our least favourite books. The first book wasn’t SOO bad…but for us…it drags and it is a story we can live without.
We mentioned this in The Candy Book Tag post – but yeah it’ll have to be Beautiful Creatures By Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl (this book put us off books for a while 😖)
BEING IN PLACES THEY SHOULDN’T – LEAST FAVORITE CLICHE:
The LEVEL of detail on love triangles. If a book solely relies on a love triangle as a base, it instantly becomes a book we don’t read. For example, the Twilight series (which we didn’t read but know enough about). One book that has successfully used a love triangle that comes to our minds, would probably be the Shatter Me series – and that’s only because there was more happening (more important things) other than the actual love triangle, and also the love triangle dissolved at the perfect time, unlike Twilight.
FINAL QUESTION: THE GOOD OLD CARDBOARD BOX – MOST UNDERRATED BOOK SERIES:
There are many underrated books but this one pops out in our minds at this moment, The Queen of All that Dies (The Fallen World trilogy) By Laura Thalassa.
This trilogy is pure bliss XD XD !! We talked about it more in our 5 Books To Cure A Book Hangover post.
