The Book Courtship Book Tag

Okay, this is the first post in here, in which there isn’t an exact book or an author that I write about. But yesterday was the first time that somebody tagged the blog and I thought why not doing it, so here I am.

It’s “The Book Courtship Book Tag” and I was tagged by Travelling In My Bookcase Blog. The Book Courtship Tag which was originally created by LovelyLikeLaura.

Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?

Fallen Too FarThis is definitely “Fallen Too Far” by Abbi Glines. I just fell in love when I saw the cover. And since I know that Abbi Glines is a good writer I just bought the book. Instantly. Check the Bulgarian cover that actually got me in here.

Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary?

A Discovery of WitchesI first saw the book in the local library, and when I read what’s it all about I just decided that it’s my book. And the big love has just began.

Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?

The Lord of the RingsAll 3 books are amazingly writen in Tolkien’s style. I love this man and the world he had created. I’ve been lost there so many times.

Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

TwilightI’ve seen and heard so many people to talk bad about this book series, but I don’t really care. I just like it. The book wasn’t released in Bulgaria, so my first meeting with it was a fan translation, but a really good one. Being honest I read all the books online. After that Egmont Bulgaria bought the rights and now I have them all in my house.

Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceOne of my cousins has bought the book before me and I was so envious. I asked him to give it to me, so I can read it and he was good and gave it the same day. I started to read at 7pm and I finished at 5am. I didn’t even bother myself to sleep. It was good that I was in a summer holidays.

Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?

This is it. This is a special book and beginning of a special series.

Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?

Fortune is a WomanThis is a book, that I just love. It’s writing, the way it makes me feel, the passion and the message it leaves! Deserves reading!

Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?

“Shogun” by James Clavell is the book, that I can highly recommend. True and interesting, it is such kind of book, which can make you think about lots of things.

Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re read many times in the future?

“Vampire Academy” series, 100%. It may not be many people’s favorite, but I read this book in a very hard moment of my life and it kept me safe, not thinking about bad things, but only about the plot and what is going to happen next. Definitely will re read the whole series many times.

Phase 10 – Share the love: Who do you tag?

The war against Voldemort is not going well; even the Muggle governments are noticing. Ron scans the obituary pages of the Daily Prophet, looking for familiar names. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.

And yet, as with all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate—and lose a few eyebrows in the process. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

So it’s the home front that takes center stage in the multilayered sixth installment of the story of Harry Potter. Here at Hogwarts, Harry will search for the full and complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort—and thereby find what may be his only vulnerability.

The summer holidays are dragging on and Harry Potter can’t wait for the start of the school year. It is his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and there are spells to be learnt and (unluckily) Potions and Divination lessons to be attended. But Harry can’t know that the atmosphere is darkening around him, and his worst enemy is preparing a fate that it seems will be inescapable… With characteristic wit, fast-paced humour and marvellous emotional depth, J.K. Rowling has proved herself yet again to be a master story-teller.

Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It’s assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney’s ghoulish predictions seriously?

The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone–or something–starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects… Harry Potter himself.
