Book Tag | The School for Good and Evil Tag

Welcome to another post, today I’m going to be doing the School for Good and Evil Tag. Thank you to Sabrina for creating it and Virginia for tagging me! I read the School for Good and Evil a long time ago, and I still have a battered copy on my bookshelf, but I had to do this tag for the nostalgia!

Link to books’ goodreads in the title!

The Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post!
  • Link to the original tag’s creator: Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad!
  • Pick a book that fits each prompt.
  • Tag whoever, as many or as few as you like!
  • Post these rules and list of prompts in your tag post.

55298272I was surprised by how much I loved The Sword of Kaigen, and love even more looking back on it. The epic fantasy standalone definitely intimidated me, but I devoured the story. If you’ve missed it, my review explains everything I loved about it in more detail!

25201920. sy475 The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet explores humanity and acceptance of other cultures through a fun sci-fi plot. While I did rate this 3.5 stars, I’d still recommend it because I know how much other people could love it! I also wrote a review for this last month.

34369803. sy475 The prose of If We Were Villains was definitely unforgettable, and the book was a fitting tribute to Shakespeare! In terms of the actual plot and characters, there were a few issues that I couldn’t look past but if you love Shakespeare or a dark academia atmosphere then I’d 100% recommend this.

41728452I restrained myself from the obvious Madeline Miller choices this time! The Silence of the Girls is another Greek mythology retelling of the Iliad though, with a unique perspective from Briseis, and a new take on the hero Achilles. This book really stuck with me.

40495957. sy475 It’s a bit concerning that I couldn’t find many sweet books on my goodreads read list, but Heartstopper saved me! It’s a cute LGBT+ romance with a fun and diverse friendship group, what is sweeter than that? I read all volumes available so far online in one day, and my heart was warm and happy afterwards :,)

49011Okay, I’m cheating with this one a bit because I haven’t read it. I haven’t read any collections or short stories recently! But I’m predicting that I will love The Bloody Chamber, because it puts a dark, gothic twist on familiar fairytales.

39003406. sy475 Does Aru Shah count? It’s more of a sister duo I suppose, but it’s still fun! It’s also rich in mythology and has a fast pace! I definitely need to read more books with girl groups though.

43352954. sx318 Okay, This is How You Lose the Time War is cheating a bit as well, because I haven’t read this either! I’m very excited to read it though, and I think I’ll love it. Short sci-fi forbidden romance? Sign me up!

12873I think the way Rebecca was presented was really interesting, because she’s definitely not a traditional villain, but she threatened the protagonist either way. I think there a few other people who could have been called villains too, and not just from the main character’s perspective.

8474660She-Wolves really helped me shape my personal statement and in my search for medieval queens, so thank you for that! It was also a really fun and accessible read for anyone wanting to learn about early British female rulers.

2116329I was really excited to read Brideshead Revisited, but it was a slog that I should have DNF’d early on. The pace was slow and disjointed, and I had no interest in the characters so…

41118857. sy475 The Dragon Republic was a very stressful read with a lot of twists that I did not see coming! I can’t wait for The Burning God, which I was meant to be reading this month but I will have to push back to December or January 😥

Thanks for staying with me! I tag:

Don’t feel like you have to do the tag, but it would be cool if you did!



  1. Ooh, thank you for tagging me! It’s been a while since I’ve read The School for Good and Evil, and this brought back some fond memories 😊
    And I really need to read Rebecca at some point! Everything I’ve heard about it so far makes it sound so intriguing!
