I was tagged by the lovely Ivy over at IvAnReads.  Be sure to check out her video and fabulous BookTube channel!  Thank you so much for the tag, Ivy. :) 

This tag was originally created by Novels and Nonsense.  The gist of this tag is that you must relate one book to one Doctor. 

First Doctor: What is your favorite first book in a series?
I'm going to go with the first of Melissa Marr's beautiful faery series, Wicked Lovely.  I hold such a happy place in my heart for this book.  It's what finally rekindled my love of faeries.  There is a lot of betrayal, faery politics and underhanded doings going on, so I do understand that it's not for everyone - but I loved it.

Second Doctor:  What is your favorite sequel?

The Blue Sword, by Robin McKinley.  Even though technically this book was written first, the events that take place happen after The Hero and the Crown (one of my favorite novels of all time) and it can also be read as a stand-alone.  I recommend this to any fantasy lover.

Third Doctor: What is your favorite trilogy?

This is actually really hard to answer as I tend to steer clear of trilogies, or to just never finish them.  That being said, I was deeply effected by Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices trilogy.  I liked the first book, hated the second, but fell in love with the third.  So, quite an interesting reading experience!

Fourth Doctor: What is your most colorful book?

Well... the majority of the books I own in physical copy are either literary fiction or classics, which don't exactly scream "colorful," but I do think that Like Water for Chocolate has a really vibrant and fun cover.  It's also an amazing book that I'll be doing a review on soon.

Fifth Doctor: What is a book about sports that you've read?

Unfortunately, I haven't.  I just scanned my read books and came up totally blank.  I know it's grasping at straws, but... Harry Potter has Quidditch. It takes up a good amount of his time.  Does it count?  Can anyone recommend me a good book about sports?

Sixth Doctor: What is a book with a really powerful evil villain that you've read?

A Game of Thrones.  Joffrey.  Need I saw more?
(Yes, I do, because nasty Ramsay Snow, too.  Ugh.)

Seventh Doctor: What is your favorite adult or dark book?

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is probably one of the most heart-wrenching, heart-breaking, tear-jerking books I've ever read in my entire life.  But it's such an important story to tell.

Eight Doctor: What is your favorite romance (or romantic) novel?

The Fire Lord's Lover by Kathryne Kennedy.  Really.  I know I've mentioned this before, but I just can't help myself.  This book is just perfect and sweet and sassy and all good things.

War Doctor: What is a book you wish you could forget you ever read?

Unpopular opinion time, but I absolutely hated Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.  I tolerated Throne of Glass and am currently trekking through Heir of Fire, but I think it's time for me to admit that I seriously just don't like these books.

Ninth Doctor: What is a book that made you pick up a series or genre again?

Another book I've mentioned before... Gone Girl!  I used to love reading mystery novels when I was in high school and just sort of fell out of it.  Gone Girl reignited that desire and added a new desire to read more psychological thrillers.

Tenth Doctor: What is your favorite super-hyped book?

City of Bones!  I know that this book is not a perfect book and even I became disenchanted with the series after the fourth book, but those first three books - back when it was going to be a trilogy - were so much fun.

Eleventh Doctor: What is your favorite children's (or middle grade) novel?

A Little Princess.  This book was my favorite book growing up and also turned into one of my favorite movies.  I have such fond memories of read this and I believe this is where my love of India stemmed from.

Twelfth Doctor: What new release are you anticipating?

The Winds of Winter by George R.R. Martin.  I don't even think this bad boy has a release date yet, but I desperately need it in my life!

I tag:


  1. What a fun post! I loved City of Bones so much, and I love that you chose quidditch as the sport! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks! :) I loveeeed the first three Mortal Instruments books so hard. I didn't like the 4th, but I've heard that the 5th is better and the 6th is just to die for, so I guess I should probably get to reading! ;P

  2. Thanks for tagging me !
    I'll definitely do it, even though I've never seen doctor who... XD
    Haha, Harry Potter !! XD I can't think of any sport books I've read either, so I might have to do somethin like you... :p

    1. Hahaha, I know! Now I need to find a book about sports so I can say I've read one. xD!

    Anyways, this tag looks fun, the best combo ever: doctor who + books. A win win!

  5. The Infernal Devices! It's awesome! Great post :D

    1. Oh my gosh... the tears shed over that ending, though... ;_;

  6. I'm trying to figure out how I will complete this tag lol. I suck at continuing series so I haven't actually read that many. I seriously need to get myself together lmao

    1. LOL, oh girl, me too! Luckily, other than that tricky trilogy question, it didn't ask me TOO many questions about full series, hahaha.

  7. I watched the movie of A Little Princess and really like it. WILL read the book, that's for sure. I just always forget to buy it--coz I want it in hardcopy. Thanks for tagging me! I will do the tag probably next week. :D

    1. Oh, that movie gets me every time - and the book is even better.
      Okay, just let me know when you do! I'm looking forward to your answers! <3
