The lovely ladies of Thrice Read did another awesome book tag!

Here’s the link to their post:

They found it on Spines & Covers, another blog I love!


January (Garnet): Associate with warding off negative forces and dark energies – Name a book with the darkest/evilest character you can think of.

So far, I think Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks had one of the most evil characters – Kevin. Erin worked so hard to escape from him. Kevin reminded me so much of my abusive ex-boyfriend – It nearly made me sick.

February (Amethyst): Purple is associated with royalty – Name a book with regal qualities … You can base this off of characters, or choose the king of all books.

I loved The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot!

March (Aquamarine): Washed out – Name a ‘wishy washy’ character, a character who is not strong or a follower.

Darienne from Flight #116 Is Down! by Caroline B. Cooney – She made me so mad!

April (Diamond): A diamond in the rough – Name a book that you loved but is not well known.

Chosen Ones (Lost Souls) by Tiffany Truitt. Tiffany is one of my sorority sisters, and I’ve loved every book she’s published!

May (Emerald): Said to balance energy – Name two characters who balance each other well.

This one was hard! But, my first instinct was Katniss Everdeen and Gale Hawthorne from The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins.

June (Pearl): Associated with loyalty – Name a character who is loyal to the end.

Silas Marner from Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe by George Eliot.

July (Ruby): Blood red – Name a book that made your blood boil, one that made you angry.

This one was also hard – Several books have made me angry! But, the first one I thought of that brought instant rage was Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States by Sister Helen Prejean. It was eye-opening to read her story and see her thoughts develop about the death penalty.

August (Peridot): Pale green (It pales in comparison to other gems) – Name a supporting character who you like better than the main character.

Susan Pevensie, from C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia!

September (Sapphire): Blue like the ocean which is calming – Name a book that had a calming effect on you.

The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun by Gretchen Rubin.

October (Opal): Iridescent – Name an iridescent book, this can be a book with a beautiful cover (Shiny? Lots of color?) Or you can base it off of a character (Quirky? Colorful?)

Margo Roth Spiegelman from Paper Towns by John Green.

November (Topaz): Associated with resilience – Name a book with a character who rises to the top in a time of adversity.

Katniss Everdeen.

December (Blue Zircon / Turquoise): Associated with friendship – Name a book with a friendship you want to be a part of.

I’m naming two book series here – (1) All the girls (Kristy, Mary Anne, Stacey, Claudia, Dawn, Mallory, Jessi, Abby, Logan, and Shannon) from The Baby-Sitters Club series by Ann M. Martin, and (2) Nancy, Bess, and George from the Nancy Drew mysteries.


This was such a fun, different, and challenging tag!


Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
