In preparation for the Fearless rerecorded album coming out tomorrow, I decided to do a book tag about Taylor, and found this cool one by Rhonda @ Rhonda With A Book. I also thought why not make it even harder and choose my favourite song for each album? Because I love to cause myself a headache, apparently. What’s more, I am going to rate all albums on a scale of one to five. Yeah, I am crazy like that. And just a heads up: I might rate some albums lower, but that doesn’t’ mean it’s not good, it’s just my preference.
Taylor Swift: an author’s debut book
For this, I chose Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas. I absolutely loved Aiden’s debut and can’t wait to read their new book, Lost In the Never Woods. Cemetery Boys is a paranormal contemporary about a Latinx trans boy, Yadriel, trying to prove his gender to his family. It was so good, the setting, the characters, the dialogues, everything.
Fearless: a book that scared you
Through the Woods by Emily Caroll! I read this graphic novel two years ago, but I remember that the first or second story scared the heck out of me. It’s beautifully illustrated by the way, with red, grey and black colours, but definitely read it in daylight. (Which was not what I did, but don’t copy me.)
Speak Now: a book with great dialogue
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune for sure! It was one of my favourite books last year, and among many things, I absolutely loved the dialogues. Witty, funny and wholesome.
Red: a book with red on the cover or in the title
The Hungarian version of The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi has a red cover. In case you haven’t heard about this book, it’s a graphic novel memoir about the author’s life at the beginning of the Iran-Iraq War.
1989: a book published the year you were born
(Rhonda said in her post that you don’t have to have read that certain book.) Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman! I have seen the movie and liked it, but I have no intention of reading the novel.
And choosing just one favourite song gets extra challenging from here…
reputation: a book that lived up to its hype
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid came immediately to my mind. I read it after seeing so many people adoring it, and it became a favourite. The hype was definitely right this time!
Lover: a favourite romance or book with a romantic subplot
I don’t think I have a favourite, but there are some I like, for example, the romance in I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn. It is so adorable!
folklore: a fairy tale, folktale, or myth retelling
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. Did it break my heart? For sure. Would I recommend this experience to everyone? You bet.
evermore: a book you could read for the rest of your life
Emma by Jane Austen is one of the many books I could reread forever because I just love it that much. I also have seen its adaptations so many times, I know the story by heart. It’s probably my favourite Austen novel.

I’d like to tag a few bloggers, who I know love Taylor Swift: Vera and Sabrina @ Wordy and Whimsical, Ash @ Starlight Strands, Emme @ A Literary Latte and Erin @ Rin’s Reads. But if you’d like to do this, consider yourself tagged!
What is your favourite song from each of her album? What’s your favourite album? (Or albums, as I know it’s literally impossible to choose only one.)
