The Undas Book Tag

In celebration of the Halloween Season in Filipino tradition, I will be doing The Undas Book Tag. Believe it or not, it’s my favorite season because nothing beats telling spooky stories in the dark and also honoring our dearly departed love ones. Sadly, my family won’t be able to go to Quezon Province to visit my maternal grandparents & uncle’s graves due to pandemic.  I would like to thank Kate of Your Tita Kate for creating this tag and also for tagging me! I am also accepting her bonus challenge to answer each questions only using the books I’ve read in 2021. 🙂

Without further ado, let’s begin:

Feast: A Book With Food on the Cover

40032369._SY475_

Who doesn’t love cake? The first book that comes in my mind is We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon. The story is between a harpist and a baker. They work together in a catering business and the heroine (the harpist) has a crush on the hero (the baker). It was a sweet romance which greatly tackles mental illness. 

Flowers: A Book with a Descriptive Writing

HALLELUJAH! Neon Gods by Katee Robert is such a delight sexy read. Chef’s kiss hotness, you will fan yourself. It’s a Hades-Persephone retelling and the first book of Dark Olympus series. 

Candles: A Book with a Hopeful Ending

“Sometimes you just meet the right person at the wrong time”

Can you imagine meeting your soulmate but fate always intervenes your path? We follow the journey of Jack and Laurie for almost a decade and as a reader, you are rooting for them. I cried towards the end of the book. I felt their agony of waiting to be on each other’s arms. One Day in December by Josie Silver is the perfect answer.

Cemetery: A Book with themes of Grief

The final book in the Hudson Valley series — Buns by Alice Clayton deals with grief. The hero is a widower and struggles moving on from the death of his high school sweetheart due to a terminal illness. The heroine wants to be with him but she can’t be forever the second best. 

Music: Book with an Uplifting Message

Originally, I have the same answer as Kate but to make it different I’ll go with Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I rarely read middle grade books and this one touched my heart. It emphasizes the importance of kindness and empathy. We’re all going through battles and it makes a lot of difference when you do good deeds. You give them hope and strength to keep going. Everyone is special. Regardless with our physical look, race, religion etc. Let’s appreciate one another and be grateful for the blessings we received. 

Cards: A Book Featuring Games, Sports or Competition

Of course I love my Off-Campus Hockey men. Giving the spotlight on The Legacy by Elle Kennedy. It’s an epilogue novellas of all the couples in this series. Dean is still the superior BAE here. It’s also batshit hilarious. :)) 

Family: A Book about Ancestral Ties

54618808._SY475_

I adore XOXO by Axie Oh so much! Cello prodigy grew up in US but she and her mom flew to South Korea to visit her terminally ill grandmother. Jenny learns more about Korean culture and family roots during her stay and her love interest, Jaewoo, whom she met in US is actually a huge K-Pop Idol. 

I am tagging the following people to do this tag:
