The FIND ME Book Tag: Photographing the Precious!


    The
         FIND ME
                      Book Tag

A book tag where I get to take pretty pictures of books... Yes, please! I saw Cait do this and knew I would have to get to it soon. Then Amanda did it too, which reminded me that I totally said I'd do it, then never did. So off I went to mess up my beautiful and perfectly organised bookshelf, in order to hunt down a book for each of these! I am rather happy with how these turned out.

Just found out this is a tag from Novel Ink, so I am linking back to that here!


A BOOK WITH A SUNSET
The Start of You and Me by Emery Lord 

This was such a wonderful read, and it'll make a perfect summer read if you want something to read whilst lounging on the beach. You can go and get swept up in this adorably cute book!


A BOOK WITH WATER
Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund, Under the Influence by L.B. Simmons & Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman

Apparently I really like covers that include water in them. I like them so much that I found it really hard to just go with one picture for this one. So I had to go with three. But, can you blame me when the covers are all so pretty!


A BOOK WITH A FLOWER
Elixir by Hilary Duff

I own hundreds of books and yet I seemed to really struggle to hunt down any books with a flower on the front cover. At least this finally proves that there was a reason I still haven't gotten rid of this book, despite the fact I have zero intention of reading it. At least now I have found some little use for it, I will feel better when I finally do get rid of it without reading it. 
A BOOK WITH A HEART
Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven

This book has such a pretty cover to photograph, it just always looks so colourful. I read this book thanks to Brittany, she kept gushing about it and I kind of wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I am happy to report that I actually loved it, it was a New Adult book that really worked for me.


A BOOK WITH GONE IN THE TITLE
Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

I really wanted to find a book for this one that wasn't Since You've Been Gone, which Cait used, or Gone Girl, which Amanda used. Apparently there are far less books with gone in the title than I first thought, so I had to go with this one. I don't regret it though.... the cover is sooooo colourful!


A BOOK WITH A WEAPON
The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

I could have gone with any book in the series, Celaena is showing off her crazy weapon-wielding skills in all of them. So this way I got to use them all and show off the beautiful green cover that is Heir of Fire.


A BOOK WITH A MOON
Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult

This was one where I imagined I would have quite a few covers to choose from, but this was the only one I could actually hunt down on my shelves. 


A BOOK WITH A GIRL IN A WHITE DRESS
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

YAY! Another excuse to show off a Throne of Glass book. This time I got to use the back cover of the UK paperback version of Throne of Glass, and it's sooo pretty. This was the only one I could find with someone in a white dress, which surprised me as well. I probably would have found another if I had had the energy to look some more.


A BOOK WITH A COUPLE KISSING
Loop by Karen Akins

I really need to hurry up and read this book. I was gifted it at Christmas and have been meaning to get to it ever since. If you have read it then tell me what you thought, let me know if it's worth getting to sooner rather than later.


A BOOK WITH HEADPHONES
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

This is a brilliant book, I absolutely loved it! It's also the only book that me, and everyone else it would seem, could find that had headphones on the cover!



BONUS ROUND!

Amanda added some of her own and I couldn't resist taking more photos.


A BOOK WITH WINGS
The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

Wonderfully, beautiful, fiery wings!


A BOOK WITH A BOOK
To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

This is such an adorably, cute, sweet book! Lara Jean and Peter K... Oh, how I love them!


A BOOK WITH A DOOR
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

This was the book Amanda chose and the first one that came to my mind as well. I think this is the prettiest cover of this book out of all of them. It's so stunning and I love the hand print on the wall. 


A BOOK WITH AN EYE
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

I absolutely LOVE these covers, they are so stunning. Each one has an eye on it and they get prettier as they go along. Ignite Me is my favourite cover of the whole series.

  1. Oh man I just love the cover to Loop so much! I don't usually like kissing covers but this one did something different with it. All of these were such beautiful covers really; you have a great collection here! And it looked like so much fun, hunting for all the books. :)

    1. Thank you!!! :) I wish I could take outside photography, but I'm limited when it comes to that. Plus... I kind of don't want to take my books outside and lay them on the floor or on grass!!! I am a lil' OCD.

  9. This tag is so much fun!!! Love your book choices, they are all pretty spot on! Loop made me look at the book longer though, I wasn't seeing the couple kissing for some reason lol. This is the first time I've seen this Daughter of Smoke and Bone cover and I love it as well! :) - Amir

  10. Thanks for the TAG, lady! I'll get it posted later this week. :)
    Your pictures are gorgeous. Well done!
    I feel like I might have some duplicate books because they're my fave and so pretty. Like how can you choose the ToG books? Seriously. And Bad Romeo. Why can't more NA and romance books look like that? Why do we have to get the stupid almost kissing or white shirts in the rain? Ugh! Also The Start of Me and You. Loves that cover and book. Is there a sunset of Open Road Summer? I think there is. I'll have to use that one if there is. Lol!
    Happy reading!

  11. Aaah, so many awesome books!! First of all, I LOVE Sarah J. Maas (although I still haven't read Heir of Fire) so awesome pick there :) Also, I really really want to read The Start of You and Me because Open Road Summer was so freaking perfect! I haven't read Ignite Me or To All the Boys I've Loved Before yet but both of them are on my shelf waiting to be read, and I've heard good things about Bad Romeo :) Again, awesome list!

    1. The Start of Me and You is really good, I definitely recommend that one. I ended up LOVING Bad Romeo... even though it isn't my usual kind of read.
