I’m a Taylor Swift fangirl.
This has been chronicled multiple times on Finding Wonderland. From oldie reviews of singles to a guest post (of this very tag) from a talented blogger friend to my more recent “fangirl confessions” TSwift homage post, I’m all about this girl’s music. There are a select few artists that write and record songs that I don’t eventually grow weary of. Taylor Swift’s songs fall into this group. Usually I put, whatever my latest single “obsession” is on repeat so many times that I grow tired of it before long. This shows no signs of affecting this artist’s songs.

“My castle crumbled overnight.” – Taylor Swift, Call it What You Want
Though I don’t relate to the tunes Taylor has penned, there’s something lyrically complex and pulling in her songs that still – somehow, resonates. This is why, on the eve of her new album, ‘Reputation,’ drop – where’s midnight?? – I’ve decided to put together The Taylor Swift Book Tag.=
(And as an aside note, don’t forget to go back and read Bekah’s take on this tag, which she so awesomely put together for Finding Wonderland.)
“Cherry lips, crystal skies. I could show you incredible things.” – Taylor Swift, Blank Space
Today we’re playing this tag on the Booktube Channel as well. This means the usual rules apply. We’re breaking this tag up. “Part 1” is the video and “part 2” is here on Finding Wonderland, the written portion of the tag (or vice versa). However you look at it, we’re splitting up the tag. Part of the Q’s are answered below, the rest in the video (those Q’s are listed below, and left blank).
Let’s get to those TSwift hits, and pair with them some books. Because what goes better together??
Innocent: Pick a book that someone ruined the ending for | I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to spoiling books (this is because I read all the spoilers, most especially for TV shows. I know there were a few books I read the ending of first – so far back, I no longer remember which they were. More recently, I did spoil myself on how the book Allegiant ends. Because of this, I doubt I’ll ever read the trilogy.
Everything Has Changed: Pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development | I think one of the characters that impresses me the most (with a transformation) is Owen from You’re the One that I Want. Because he’s in the five books leading up to his story (the sixth and final novel in the series), I think I had this idea there’d be no way he’d step up and be a good hero. Needless to say, I was proven WRONG!
You Belong With Me: Pick your most anticipated book release | Do I hafta’ just pick one??
Kasie West’s Love, Life and the List | Bailee Madison and Stefne Miller’s Losing Brave | Julianna Deering’s Death at Thorburn Hall | Stephanie Strohm’s Prince in Disguise | Rachel McMillan’s Murder at the Flamingo – plus more!
Forever and Always: Pick your favorite book couple | TOO MANY TO NAME! Is this a satiable answer? *smile* OK, so favorite book couple. Well, I’ve talked about favorite book (and non-book) couples in many posts before (see exhibit A, and B), and I have a “2017 Edition” of favorite bookish couples in my drafts. For the purpose of today’s tag, I’ll name a few off the top of my head (fully admitting there are LOTS more).
Come Back, Be Here: Pick the book you would least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much | I’d miss all of my books, but so long as they’re returned, I’m glad to share.
BONUS QUESTIONS (added by Kat):
Teardrops On My Guitar: Pick a book that made you cry a lot | I don’t tend to be a “crier.” Though the one book that could have made me tear up – I don’t remember if I did try while reading it, is The Fault in Our Stars. Or Amy Matayo’s The End of the World.
Shake It Off: Pick a book that you love so much, you just shake off the haters | Love this question! The only book (aka series) I can think of is the ‘Selection’ series. It seems to get a love of hate, and I’m over here, all like lovin’ the series – flaws and all.
Q’s Answered in the new Booktube Video:
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together: pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with
Red: pick a book with a RED cover
The Best Day: pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic
I Knew You Were Trouble: pick a book with a bad character you couldn’t help but love
