count to 10 with me book tag

Hello, internet! I’m coming at you with a fun book tag this week that was originally featured on Alyce @ The Bumbling Blogger‘s book tube and was created by Alyce’s partner Sean. Thank you Madeline @ The Bookish Mutant for tagging me!

──────── ●⚫● ────────

1. first book in a series

I haven’t started a lot of new series this year, but one of my favorites so far has been These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong. It’s a Romeo & Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai with a bit of a twist, and it’s glorious.

2. two or more copies of the same book

Amazon.com: Grace and Glory (The Harbinger Series, 3) (9781335212788):  Armentrout, Jennifer L.: Books

I no longer have two copies of these, but I used to have a hardcover and an ebook version of Grace and Glory by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Because I preferred to read the ebook, I just returned the hardcover.

3. three colors on the cover

How the Cover Was Decided for V. E. Schwab's New Book A Darker Shade of  Magic | Tor.com

This was a surprisingly hard prompt! I chose A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab because it’s red, black, and cream.

4. four or more perspectives

The only books I can think of that has a bunch of different perspectives is the Throne of Glass series and the An Ember in the Ashes series.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa TahirAmazon.com: A Torch Against the Night (An Ember In The Ashes Book 2) eBook:  Tahir, Sabaa: Kindle StoreA Reaper at the Gates An Ember in the Ashes Sabaa Tahir book cover81ae1vs8ffl

5. a five star read

My last 5 star read was A Sky Beyond the Storm. It was sad to say goodbye to characters that I’ve grown to love, but I’m glad this series got a finale that it deserves.

6. six or more short stories

I’m not sure how many short stories are in this book (I *think* there are 11), but I’m pretty sure there are more than six. I impulse-bought this book because I saw how pretty it was on Instagram, and I have no regrets. The pictures inside are beautiful, and the stories were a fun addition to The Cruel Prince world.

7. a seven on the cover or the spine

Amazon.com: Saga Volume 7 (9781534300606): Vaughan, Brian K, Staples,  Fiona: Books

This might be cheating, but the only book I could think of is Saga, Vol. 7. When in doubt, find the seventh book in a series.

8. eight letters in the title

I feel like I talk about the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson a lot, but I can’t recommend it enough. It’s one of my top favorite series of all time, and any fantasy lover will absolutely adore this series!

9. book ends on a page ending with a nine

Crying in H Mart: A Memoir: Zauner, Michelle: 9780525657743: Amazon.com:  Books

Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner has 239 pages!

10. ten books in a series

The only series I could think of is the Ms. Marvel comic series by G. Willow Wilson. There are 10 volumes (as of right now), and I have yet to read the last one.

Amazon.com: Ms. Marvel Vol. 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel Series) eBook: Wilson,  G. Willow, Pichelli, Sara, Alphona, Adrian: Kindle StoreAmazon.com: Ms. Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why (Ms Marvel: Marvel Now!)  (9780785190226): Wyatt, Jacob, Alphona, Adrian, Wilson, G.

I’ve been doing a lot of tags lately, and I don’t want to overwhelm other bloggers. If you want to do this, consider yourself tagged!
