Taylor Swift book tag

Okay, so I decided to do the Taylor Swift book tag. Basically, there's 10 song titles, from which are born 12 book questions, so here I go:

1-We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together aka pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with:
The Immortal series by Alyson Noel
Basically, I read the first four books of the series. I even had the three first. I really liked them at first. I did. But then it felt like at 20 pages from the end of the book, something big and out of nowhere would happen, pushing the SAME PROBLEM of the first book back so the author could make another book. I love YA books, and so I am okay with book series. Even very long ones. If you just saw the amount of Warrior (Erin Hunter) books in my shelves you'd seen what I mean. Compared to that, six books is NOTHING. Except it's not. Because I really hate when it's to obvious that authors or publishing house just want to make money even if that means stretching TO MUCH the story.
I feel like it's important that I give a special mention here to...
The lying game by Sara Shepard! I just could help putting it here too, because it really is equal to The Immortals. And I really tried to get back together but just couldn't. When I finished Two Truths And A Lie, I was annoyed because I thought, like in the book series above, that they were stretching this too much. Like can we just get the end already? At that time, the other books were not released yet, so it wasn't until recently that I went to my local library and picked up #4 et #5. I started number 4. But I just couldn't. First off, I had forgot how much it annoyed me that the like 100 first pages of the book are basically just spent to help you remember the last books. It get old. Seriously. And also I realized by then that there was also ANOTHER one after #5. I never even considered doing this before, but I actually thought of going to find the last book (if it's out yet?) and read the ending... That is if book 6 is even the last one. But I just though "nah forget it" and that's that. (Fresh Prince reference anyone? no?) I get that she makes money and that her books are popular and both into tv series, but like, she could also just end the series sooner, so it stays good, and make ANOTHER serie instead of making one that lasts forever. Just saying.

2- Red aka Pick a book with a red cover
I LOVE this book. Which is actually 3 books in one. This the third book (to contain 3 books) so it's books 7, 8 and 9. I can honestly say that this series really changed me. Like really. Not just in a metaphorical or it-sounds-go-to-say kinna thing.

3- The Best Day aka pick a book that makes you nostalgic

Funny how I just happened to mention this darling above. I do not know how many time I read this book. Maybe about 3 times...It's not the one I read the most from this series. Warrios: Into the Wild by Erin Hunter makes me nostalgic basically because I started reading them like ten years ago when I was 8 or something, and when I seriously loved to pretend I was a cat hunting mice after reading this book. Hey! No judging, I was 8...

4-Love Story aka Pick a book with forbidden love
At the risk of laking originality...

I will not get into details because I do not want to spoil anything to anyone. For real, you can rest assure, I hate spoilers. You will never see one on here without 2 billion warnings before. Ever. This here is a safe haven from spoilers. And please do not post any in the comments people if you don't want to get the Wrath of Khan...*mouhahahaha* No seriously just don't.

5-I Knew You Were Trouble aka pick a book with a bad character you couldn't help but love

The book right there, above. Hihi. So yes, I have to say The Mortal Instruments, for I really couldn't help liking Valentine. Plus he is really cute in the movies. He is despicable... and adorable.

I would like to give a special mention to a character from TV because he just fits perfectly this category even though we are talking books. Klaus from The Originals. I just had to.

6- Innoncent aka pick a book that someone ruined the ending for you

I know I am going to finish this book at some point because to me this is one of the best series ever. But right now I just can't because someone evil spoiled it for me a while ago, and honestly, and I am going to say on this is that I cannot think there is a worst spoiler to give to someone. Seriously.

7- Everything Has Changed aka pick a character from a book that goes through extensive developpement

(Harry Potter) I do not get why there is 8 books there but whatever. Harry goes through a lot of things obviously since at first he didn't even know he was a wizard, and the he goes to school and all and really I don't think I have to explain this because if you do not know the story at this point, then it is safe to assume that you don't give a rat's ass about Harry. I do though.

8- You belong with me aka most anticipated book release
The Maybe "The Racket" by John Green. It's the working title of his next book, but we don't know anything about it yet and I am guessing that at this point, the title could change, that's why maybe. No dates either. But I don't care, because it's John Green, and it will be awesome, and it will probably take a part of my soul and kill me.

9- Forever & Always aka pick your favorite book couple.

This... This cannot be negociated. It cannot. I do not want to hear it.
Hm.. Sorry. *Regains control* you may speak.

10- Come Back... Be Here aka pick the book you would least like to lend from fear of missing it to much.

The idea alone made me start signing Come Back... Be Here. Seriously. I lended it to my mom and sister (yup, both) but only because we share the same house so it was still home, not gone, and because I just HAD to share it before the movie came out. I read this book twice already.

11- Teardrops on My Guitar aka pick a book that made you cry a lot
This....This book nearly killed me. And so did the movie by the way. Side note: BEST QUOTES EVER!!!!!

Special mention to an equal book:
If I Stay by Gayle Forman. Already read it twice (god I really spend more time than I thought re-reading books...). Awesome book. Lots of tears. Actually read it before TFIOS.

12- Shake It Off aka pick a book that you love so much you just shake of the haters
Harry Potter book series. Like, unless you like to live dangerously you just do not speak against Harry Potter in front of me. You just do not. 

13- BONUS- ADDED/CREATED BY ME: Haunted aka pick a book that has haunted you for months after reading it.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I keep coming back to this book in my head all the time. It's the kind of book that you don't forget, and that doesn't leave you unchanged. 

So that's that! Below is the list of questions and songs alone which you can use for your own blog/video or to post your tag below. Please do. Tell me your list, and post a link if you would rather do a video/blog. Yeah... I don't mind we are all friends here. Unless you don't like books.
