The Book Courtship Tag


Hello fellow bookworms! No one has tagged me to do this though I’ve been seeing it everywhere and I thought it would be fun! 🙂


Phase 1 – Initial Attraction
A book that you bought because of the cover?

Phase 2 – First Impressions
A book that you got because of the summary?

Never date your best friend.
Always be original.
Sometimes rules are meant to be broken.

Best friends Dave and Julia were determined to never be cliché high school kids—the ones who sit at the same lunch table every day, dissecting the drama from homeroom and plotting their campaigns for prom king and queen. They even wrote their own Never List of everything they vowed they’d never, ever do in high school.

Some of the rules have been easy to follow, like #5, never dye your hair a color of the rainbow, or #7, never hook up with a teacher. But Dave has a secret: he’s broken rule #8, never pine silently after someone for the entirety of high school. It’s either that or break rule #10, never date your best friend. Dave has loved Julia for as long as he can remember.

Julia is beautiful, wild and impetuous. So when she suggests they do every Never on the list, Dave is happy to play along. He even dyes his hair an unfortunate shade of green. It starts as a joke, but then a funny thing happens: Dave and Julia discover that by skipping the clichés, they’ve actually been missing out on high school. And maybe even on love. 

Phase 3 – Sweet Talk
A book with great writing

Phase 4 – First Date
A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls
A book that kept you up all night?

Phase 6 – Always On My Mind
A book you could not stop thinking about?

Phase 7 – Getting Physical
A book which you love the way it feels

Phase 8 – Meeting the parents
A book which you would recommend to your friends and family

Phase 9 – Thinking about the future
A book or series you know you will reread many times in the future

Phase 10 – Share the Love
