The Rainbow Book Tag // 6.17.18

rainbow book tag

Hey, all! Saw this fun little tag bouncing around the sites and decided to do my own version of it! To challenge myself a little bit, I told myself I had two rules: to feature only books that had not been on my site before, and to choose books that didn’t belong to a series, as a lot of series (like Throne of Glass) tend to have one book per color of the rainbow – and that was an easy way out. I also mixed it up a little bit between books on my “read” and “to-read” shelf, so I went into a little more detail than what the original tag requires. Hope y’all enjoy!
