1989 Book Tag

Charnell at Reviews from a Bookworm created this super fun Taylor Swift 1989 Book Tag in order to celebrate the new design of her blog. Since I had SO much fun at the 1989 concert, I decided to play along. So each category is a song from the album and then you match books to selected lyrics.

PSA - this tag was pretty challenging to complete, but really fun. Please feel free to play along, and make sure to Link-Up at Reviews from a Bookworm

  1. Love this post! I've got to agree about Harry Potter - no one wanted that series to end, though it will forever live on in people's hearts. Unlike Allegiant which I wish I could erase from my memory ahah

    Most recent post on Enchanted by YA: http://enchantedbyya.blogspot.com/2015/08/review-fire-sermon-fire-sermon-1-by.html

    1. lol I think must of us agree the something went terribly wrong with Allegiant

  2. Loved this! I'll definitely have to try it sometime. I definitely agree with you about the Divergent trilogy. It started out good but quickly deteriorated.

    1. right?! I loved Tris in the first book, and then I grew to hate her, and despite that I still hated the "twist" in Allegiant

  3. I've got a couple tags I need to do, but have signed up for too many blitzes recently. I need to take a break from those and do some more fun things like this for awhile I think. Great post!

    1. Tags are definitely fun and I think they are a great way to discuss some books that we haven't talked about in a while

  4. Doing this seems like so much fun, I love your picks! Taylor's songs + books is just a great match haha <3
