I had been wanting to do a tag for a while now and I saw Sofii do this one and I thought it could be fun doing it myself! I thought that giving multiple answers as Sofii did would made the tag more fun so that’s what I’m doing!
CHASTITY: Which author/book/series you wish you had never read?
I’m kind of hesitant with this one. I don’t feel like there is one that I “wish I had never read” because even in those cases I feel like those books are experiences that allow me to be here today. But, anyway, I will put here some books I didn’t enjoy that much!
Un Extraño en el Bosque: I don’t even remember what this was about but I just know I didn’t like it.
Fading: This series has a good rating on Goodreads. I don’t remember why I didn’t like it. Honestly, I don’t even remember reading it. Maybe today I would think differently about this book and continue the series. I won’t do that, but maybe my opinion today would be different.
Delirium: I liked the first book and strongly disliked the rest of the series.
TEMPERANCE: Which book/series did you find so good, that you didn’t want to read it all at once, and you read it in doses just to make the pleasure last longer?
Hidden Legacy: If you don’t know I absolutely love Ilona Andrews and this series is amazing! If you love a good urban fantasy with lots of magic and romance this is an absolute must!
The Dark Artifices: I fell in love with this trilogy slowly but enjoyed each of these books.
Winternight Trilogy: I know, you must be tired of seeing these books on my posts but I loved this trilogy more than I imagined and it definitely deserves all the words. (You can find my series review here)
CHARITY: Which book/series/author do you tirelessly push to others, telling them about it or even giving away spare copies bought for that reason?
Ilona Andrews: I absolutely rave about Ilona Andrews. You may start with the Kate Daniels or the Hidden Legacy but these series are amazing.
Six of Crows duology: I feel like these books are perfect if you are not used to read because they have a great writing, great cast of characters (and you may feel attachment to one or the other), a bit of romance, fantasy, but above all a lot of wit and intelligence that is compelling.
The Name of the Wind: I love these books and they deserve all the attention. It’s not an easy one to start with but if you want epic fantasy, great plot and characters this is one you might want to check! (and don’t feel intimidated by the page count because it’s absolutely worth the read!!)
DILIGENCE: Which series/author you follow no matter what happens and how long you have to wait?
I’m so sorry but…Ilona Andrews. I have other answers too! I add to this list Leigh Bardugo, Cassandra Clare, Patrick Rothfuss, Tillie Cole, Nalini Singh. Those are the ones I can think of right now!
As for series, I tend to follow some long urban fantasy so I would say: Guild Hunter, Psy-Changeling, Heirs of Chicagoland, The Kingkiller Chronicle, Hades Hangmen, Mercedes Thompson and those are the main ones that are being released. I have followed others but now they are finished like the Kate Daniels, Charley Davidson, Bajo el Cielo Púrpura de Roma.
As you might guess, there is a strong presence of urban fantasy in these answers.
PATIENCE: Is there an author/book/series you’ve read that improved with time the most, starting out unpromising, but ultimately proving rewarding?
Okay, this one was a difficult one, because of the “starting out unpromising”. I can’t think of a series or book that I would qualify as such, just because if I’m reading it I usually find it promising. But I guess I could answer with The Witcher series. It’s not that the series started unpromising but it was a rough difficult start for me and that made me hesitant about the rest of the series. Now I’m reading the last one and I have seen improvement both in the writing and the plot. I still have to see if it will “ultimately prove rewarding”!
KINDNESS: Which fictitious character would you consider your role-model in the hassle of everyday life?
I would say Kate Daniels or Mercy Thompson, I love how both of them are resourceful, ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the people they care about are alright but without taking unnecesary foolish risks. They are brave, intelligent and always face their challenges.
HUMILITY: Which book/series/author do you find most under-rated?
Ahh, I couldn’t think of one because the ones that came to my mind I wouldn’t qualify them as under-rated. Maybe I would say they aren’t getting that much attention now, but they are well rated or known, others are getting more attention now and again, wouldn’t qualify them as under-rated.
What would you answer? Definitely let me know, I woul love to find some books/series/authors that you would qualify as under-rated!
And that is all for today!
Thank you so much for reading! I had so much fun doing this tag! Definitely feel tagged if you want to do it!
Let’s chat! Which book/series/author do you find most under-rated and which would you say improves with time?
