Hamiltag !

I was tagged by Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight to do this and I'm so excited!  This tag was created by Maureen!

 The Room Where It Happens

(A Book World You Would Put Yourself Into)

So you may think I'm crazy for this one but how could I not choose my favorite book of all time?  This gets back to my boarding school love and that there is something about the academic setting of this book that I want!!

 The Schuyler Sisters

(An Underrated Female Character)

With so much focus on the "Boys" in this series, I really think that Blue is so underrated.  And, you know I can't wait for the last book next month -- I am terrified/excited.

My Shot

(A Character That Goes After What They Want and Doesn’t Let Anything Stop Them)

Heck yes I am stealing Jessica's answer for this one because Leah is the answer to this question. I don't even want to know about a world where someone is more determined than Leah, hahaha!


(The Most Heartbreaking End To A Relationship You’ve Ever Read)

So I completely agree that this is spoilery beyond belief but I couldn't pick anything else for this one.

You'll Be Back 

(Sassiest Villain) 

Lady Catherine de Bourgh, but of course!

The Reynolds Pamphlet

(A Twist You Didn't See Coming)



(A Series You Marathoned)

And I can't go on -- Book 5 was not bueno but I liked 1-4 and marathoned them.


(Favorite Book with Multiple POVs)

Stay Alive

(A Character You Wish Was Still Alive)

This is a preemptive #SaveGansey, ok?

It's Quiet Uptown

(A Book That Made You Ugly Cry)

I'm really not a cryer while reading but I shed a few tears with this one.

One Last Time

(The Best Series Ender)

I cannot express the perfection of this series enough, seriously.

Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story?

(A Book/Series You Feel Like Will Be Remembered Throughout History)

The social commentary, the beautiful writing, Simon and Meg !!

Who are you going to tag?!


  1. This is awesome! So many books on here that I want (NEED) to read! I've recently added the Written in Red series to my list. I need to start Morning's series. And read Station Eleven. I've heard all are so good. Colleen Hoover always recommends How to Kill a Rockstar, and I've yet to read it. Firefly Lane is one of my favorite books of all time!!

  2. I've never even heard of Firefly Lane. I'll have to check it out. Lady Catherine de Bourgh was such a witch, lol! So completely horrible. I've watched that version of Pride and Prejudice so many times I've lost count. My favorite version! So darn funny! Oh, I hope nothing happens to Gansey!! I will be most displeased (channeling Catherine de Bourgh here)! Blue is sort of put into the background with all these boys, isn't she? Gosh, I love that series. I read the books first and then listened to the audio version and giggled my way through much of it. Will Patton has excellent comedic timing.

  3. AHH I LOVE BLUE SARGENT SO MUCH! I wouldn't have ever thought she was underrated though? Being that she's the one who does most of the narrating in the books...but I do know what you mean, considering all the boys are somewhat magical and she is not. xD ERMGARD I AM SO SO NERVOUS FOR THE RAVEN KING. *hyperventilates tragically*

  4. I haven't seen or listened to this musical at all, but it is EVERYWHERE! It's kind of crazy. I've never heard of a musical getting so hyped up. But great answers. I haven't read any of these myself though... oops? I have Bishop's The Other series right on the top of my TBR though so hopefully I'll get to it soon.

  5. Wow there are so many books on here that I need to read. Especially The Others series!

  6. Oh my gosh, I so agree on Firefly Lane. I actually thought of it when I chose my Ugly Cry answer but there was one that did me in more so I went with it.

  7. Love this post! The Hamilton the books, just all of it!

  8. Hahaha! YESSS to Leah! RIGHT? :) Firefly Lane has caught my eye for so long now. I think it's the beautiful cover! I've not had luck with Stiefvater's books, but one of my friends was explaining the Raven Boys series and I was quite intrigued... I don't know. Maybe someday. :)

  9. YAyyy!! I am glad you did this, it's so fun!! I agree with you about Blue- I really liked her! I don't know why she doesn't get more love, though admittedly I am not caught up with the series. Perhaps she is a real asshole later on? ;) I just got Station Eleven from Book Outlet so I am pretty excited to start that one now. And I MUST start The Others series, everyone is flailing over it!

  10. What a fun tag!I have to admit I don't know much about the musical, but still enjoyed your post. :) The Secret History sounds interesting, I love the cover of Dirty Red, and the KAren Marie Moning books look good (especially since I've been looking for UF to read). I'll check this out. Great post!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
