The Rainbow Book Tag

Hello mi amigos! Today’s post is going to be the Rainbow Book Tag. I came across this book tag from Kelly | Another Book in the Wall. I haven’t done a book tag in a long time, so I’m actually pretty excited to do tag. Let’s get down to things!

The Rules:

  • Thank the lovely person that tagged you!
  • It must be the dominant color of the cover, not the spine!
  • It has to be a book you own or the exact copy that you read. (Ex: There are two copies of The Hate U Give, choose the cover of the copy you read)
  • If you do not own a book of the certain cover, choose one that has the color somewhere on it.
  • Tag some people do it! Whether they are bloggers, bookstagrammers, or booktubers. Spread the love!
  • Make it a game or do the tag as originally intended.

If you want to know more about the book, all you have to do is click the books’ cover. You’ll then be taken to the books’ GoodReads page. — Enjoy!

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge


‘One of Lux’s hands had found mine, and even though he was mouthing No, his grip gave me the strength to meet the lady’s eyes and whisper, “Even so, I will keep my vow. Where he dies, I will die. And there will I be buried.”
And with a burst of song, the sparrow landed on my wrist.
A handful of kindness, it said to the Kindly Ones. The answer to your riddle.


Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas


“The best lies were always mixed with truth.”

“But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.”

“Some things you hear with your ears. Others, you hear with your heart.”

“To escape death, she’d become death.”


Uprooted by Naomi Novik


‘But my step was lighter anyway: meeting the little girl and her cow had lifted some of the grey weight from my shoulders. I sang Jaga’s walking-song and hurried away, back towards home. I was hungry, so I ate a fruit from my basket as I walked. I could taste the forest in it, the running magic of the Spindle caught in roots and branches and fruite, infused with sunlight to become sweet juice on my tongue. There was an invitation in it, too, and maybe one day I would want to accept; one day when I was tired and ready to dream a long dream of my own. But for now it was only a door standing open on a hill in the distance, a friend waving to me from afar, and the grove’s deep sense of peace.’


The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky


“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.”

“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”

“It’s strange because sometimes, I read a book, and I think I am the people in the book.”

“This moment will just be another story someday.”


World After (Penryn and the End of Days, #2) by Susan Ee


“I look up to say something but he puts his finger to my lips and whispers, “Don’t talk. You’ll just spoil my fantasy of rescuing an innocent damsel in distress as soon as you open your mouth.”

“It is painful to see that people prefer a bad guy who looks like an angel to a good guy who looks like a demon.”

“You’re naming your collector’s-item, kick-ass sword that’s made to maim and kill, specifically designed to bring your ginormous enemies to their knees and hear the lamentation of their women-Pooky Bear?”
“Yeah, you like it?”


Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz


‘My father was right. And it was true what my mother said. We all fight our own private battles.’


The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (OwlCrate Edition)


“Most of all, I hate you because I think of you. Often. It’s disgusting, and I can’t stop.”

‘If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse.’

‘What could I become if I stopped worrying about death, about pain, about anything? If I stopped trying to belong? Instead of being afraid, I could become something to fear.’

I have lied and I have betrayed and I have triumphed. If only there was someone to congratulate me.’

“Father, I am what you made me. I’ve become your daughter after all.”


It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover 


“It stops here. With me and you. It ends with us.”

“Life is a funny thing. We only get so many years to live it, so we have to do everything we can to make sure those years are as full as they can be. We shouldn’t waste time on things that might happen someday, or maybe even never.”

“Naked truths aren’t always pretty.”


Saving June by Hannah Harrington


“He took his pain and turned it into something beautiful. Into something that people connect to. And that’s what good music does. It speaks to you. It changes you.”

“It’s so stupid because all I wanted was space and now that I have it, there’s this part of me that’s achingly lonely I could die.”

“Whatever you decide, don’t let it be because you don’t think you have a choice.”

“I’ve never been good at emotional stuff. Except anger. Anger, I’m good at.”

“I hate organized religion. I hate that people use it to justify their crappy, bigoted beliefs.”

“I still go to bed sad, and wake up sad, and it still hurts like hell, but there are moments during the day when it hurts less. Sometimes I can think of June and not want to burst into tears or put my fist through a wall. Sometimes I’m close to happy and it doesn’t even hurt. Much. I’ll never be the way I was before, but maybe that’s okay. Life goes on, I’m going on, even without her. Not every day hurts. Not every breath hurts.

Maybe that’s all we can really ask for.”


To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before


“When someone’s been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it’s like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you’re just clutching air and grit.”

“You’d rather make up a fantasy version of somebody in your head than be with a real person.”

“Love is scary: it changes; it can go away. That’s the part of the risk. I don’t want to be scared anymore.”


The Immortal Rules

“You don’t dwell on what you’ve lost, you just move on.”

“Words define us,’ Mom continued, as I struggled to make my clumsy marks look like her elegant script. ‘We must protect our knowledge and pass it on whenever we can. If we are ever to become a society again, we must teach others how to remain human.”

“I would not suffer anyone to endure the path I walk. My road must always be traveled alone.”

“Hunger flickered, always there, but I pushed it down. I was a vampire. Nothing would change that. But I didn’t have to be a monster.”


I think in the original tag, people just copy and pasted the books’ synopsis. However, I like that there are quotes instead of the books’ sysnopsis’. I personally feel that the tag is much more interesting (and a little more challenging!) to choose a favourite quote, than to just paste what the book is about and move on. So that’s what I’ve done!

I tag:

Let me know if you ended up doing this tag — tag me in your post! If you’re doing this tag on another site or social media, tag me! I am on: Instagram (adelabellabookworm), Twitter (AdeleClayton), Tumblr (sleeepybookworm), and of course here on WordPress (Adele Is Reading).

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading!

Have you read any of these books? 

Talk to you soon!
— Adele
