Day 2 of Taylor Swift Book Tag! Yay! Today’s song is Red! It’s one of my all-time TS favourite song of all time.
Losing him was blue like I’d never known. Missing him was dark grey all alone. Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met. But loving him was red. Loving him was red. Okay, enough of the singing part, dunno if I got the lyrics correct. So, yesterday we have started this book tag with We are never ever getting back together, I’ve linked the title to the corresponding blog post. So here’s for Day 2!
Track 2. Red
(pick a book with a RED cover)
Proxy by Alex London
How pretty this glossy cover is? Yes, it’s glossy in its hardback edition. (What the hell are the publishers are thinking for changing this pretty cover to a dull one?) Proxy is not so red one but since I’m so in love with this series (and with author itself, *marry me Alex, you write so good*) I chose this one over The Casual Vacancy and Catching Fire which are my other options.
Proxy is a dystopian series about a guy named Sydney Carton (yeah, just like in The Tale of Two Cities) that serves as a proxy for a patron guy named Knox. A proxy serves a some sort of a whipping boy every time the patron commits offences. Together, Syd and Knox will try to change the world of debts and obligations. For me, this is better than Hunger Games and Divergent combined. I’ve written a review for this book, as well as its sequel, entitled Guardian. (Click the links on the titles to redirect you to their corresponding book reviews) I’ve rated them high, with Guardian at 4.9 stars out of 5. I consider it a must read. (yeah, from what planet are you? Are you even human for not reading this?). It’s obvious that I’ve love this book too much, later this week I will write a blog post compiling the good lines from both books (there are tons, I mean tons!). I’ve even bought a signed copy of this book, even though I already have the hardback edition. That’s all for today, go home now and read Proxy. Tomorrow’s song will be Best Day.
