Find Me, If You Can… (Tag)

Lately I’ve been horrible at updating my Instagram account, mostly because I was just feeling so uninspired and because I really disliked what pictures I did take of books. But thanks to Rosie @ Rosie Reads and Charlotte from @ The Simple Tales for tagging me to do this! It just might be the push I need. :D

Without further ado, the Find Me tag created by the ladies at Novel Ink!

 

17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma

Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler

My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares

Origin by Jessica Khoury

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

BONUS: 4/9 books read lmao

I decided to try something a little different with my pictures! I was largely inspired by _ K ▲ T I A’s Instagram feed, so I wanted to do something similar and see how it would turn out. Even though the book covers aren’t as clear as they should be, and the pictures aren’t as gorgeous as _ K ▲ T I A’s, I’m still quite happy with the result, and I had a lot of fun editing! (Ugh for rumpled sheets, though.)

You might have noticed that #07 was missing… the one where I had to find a book with headphones or earphones. Yup, I didn’t have such a book, sadly. I also cheated a little with with #05 because the couple on that cover aren’t kissing, but well. I didn’t own a kissy-face book either. And I had a tough time with #09, because I don’t have many books with prominent flowers on their covers. Can you see how lacking I am in the contemporary department? Haha.

And I tag…

Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think of them?

    I think I commented few blogs with this tag which is kinda tempting to do but taking picture feels like troublesome. LOL I’m not sure if I have two of the categories on my shelf anyway. Anyhoo, love the way the photos were handled, very artsy~ <3

    1. Megan says:

      Haha, gotta admit that it IS kind of troublesome having to take pictures for a tag, but at least I had fun editing them. xD Eeep, thank you!

  2. Erica says:

    Okay, my first time at your blog & I am in love. It is so perfect.

    1. Megan says:

      Ahhh, thank you so much! :)))

  3. WHAT HAPPENED NEW BLOG DESIGN ALERT CODE RED OMG SO PRETTY CAN’T WORDS TODAY.

    Also I love this tag and I’m off to follow your instagram and spam your photos with likes and these photos are beautiful AND AM I ALLOWED TO DO THIS TAG WITHOUT BEING TAGGED?

    1. Megan says:

      JUST LET IT ALL OUT, HAWWA. ;)

      Haha, don’t bother — my Instagram is pretty much dead. But I saw your likes, so thanks anyway. xD And of course you can do it without being tagged! I know how gorgeous your pics are so I hope you do this! I’d love to see your shots. :D

  4. Valerie says:

    Oh I would have such a hard time with this tag, because I own barely any contemporary. BUT I LIKE YOUR PHOTOS. I personally think the rumpled sheets are cool. And same with the black and white :) :)

    GOOD GOOD MEG. I APPROVE

    1. Megan says:

      We need to create a fantasy/sci-fi version, right? ;D And hehe, I’m glad to have won your approval, Val!

  5. What a fun tag, I love instagram! I love the creative style you’ve edited your pictures with too Meghan. Instagram is one of my favourite addictions hehe.

    1. Megan says:

      I love Instagram too! Best way to waste time, bahaha, since I find so many gorgeous pictures there! And thank you, Jeann. :)

  6. Charlotte says:

    GIRLLL YOU’RE STEPPING UP THE DESIGN GAME HAHA <33

    I love your selection for water because that cover for My Name is Memory is absolutely GORGEOUS. I also love that you cropped Let the Sky Fall so the couple was center of attention. These are all fab Meg! I'm so glad you did the tag :D

    1. Megan says:

      THANK YOU, BUT NEVER AS GOOD AS YOU~~ <3

      I agree! Too bad that I haven't been hearing a lot of great stuff about it, but it was a bargain buy and it's impossible to resist that cover, haha. And yay, that was what I was hoping for when I edited LtSF! Thanks so much for tagging me, girl!

  7. Ahhh, your photos are so so beautiful. SO BEAUTIFUL. And I hear ya with lacking in the contemporary department. Me too. ;-)

    1. Megan says:

      Eeeep, thanks so much, Cait! Haha, good to know that I’m not alone. ;D

  8. I love your photos GIRL DON’T EVEN WORRY ABOUT IT.

    I have the headphones one! YES! This Song Will Save Your Life, YOU REALLY DID! I don’t know if I have a kissy one, though. Maybe Dare You TO? Dammit, I just got up to check. And they’re NEARLY touching but aren’t. I literally do not have any lip lock book covers

    1. Megan says:

      Ahh, I really wish I’d bought This Song Will Save Your Life! I read it as an e-galley when it first came out and absolutely LOVED it, so I would love to own a physical copy. >< And haha, I thought I would be the only one who doesn't own a cover like that. Dare You To was an amazing book, though!

  9. Prima says:

    Wow these pictures are just stunning. Amazing photos!! I’m actually speechless.

    1. Megan says:

      Aw, thank you so much, Prima!

  10. Ahh this is so exciting! Perfect timing–I’ve been meaning to take more photos for my IG account. It’s been neglected lately as well. I love your shots! The colors and the vintage feel–awesome. <3 I love the cute rumpled covers, actually!

    I love your pick for the heart topic as well! Such a pretty cover. ;) And I'm not sure if I have any books with headphones too. D: We'll see!

    1. Megan says:

      Eeep, that means so much, coming from a fabulous photographer like you! I can’t wait to see your pictures, Aimee. :D

      The Truth About Forever does have a gorgeous cover. I haven’t read the book yet, though. The tag can be quite challenging in this aspect, haha.

  11. Lina says:

    These pics are gorgeous, Meg! I think you really got that Instagrammer’s style down, and I think it translates beautifully for bookstagram. Plus, I really think the bedsheets wrinkles only add detail and depth to the pics :)

    My Instagram skill are only fledgling, but I think this’ll be a fun challenge for me! I might switch it up and do it at the library, though, because I don’t think I actually own books to fit under all these categories. Thanks for tagging me! :D

    1. Megan says:

      That’s good to know! I would hate to ruin her style, I would feel so horrible, haha. Lots of people are saying the same thing about the sheets as well, so maybe I was being too fussy. ;)

      Ooh, who knows what kind of books you might find at the library for this tag. Can’t wait to see your post, Lina!

  12. Larissa says:

    OH MY GOD THIS NEW BLOG DESIGN YOU HAVE!?!? I’m completely in fucking love. Writing this comment right now is completely amazing because I have this city skyline to stare at and it’s utterly gorgeous. I also love the TV box girl you have oh my god it’s perfect. And the sidebar on the left?! YES. J’adore. I even read your new about me (because I’m glorified stalker shhhh) and that’s brilliant too. Gotta love the shoutout to Emperor Penguins [; The fact your new blog’s design is yours too!?! Outstanding. You’re so talented girl.

    Okay, now onto the tag. WHERE YOU CONTINUE TO BLOW MY MIND WITH PRETTY THINGS BECAUSE AHHHH. Your photography skills are so on point, I can’t stop staring at them. They feel so vintage in a way. I feel like the rumpled sheets add to that vibe in a positive way (:

    Loved seeing your photos for this tag <33

    1. Megan says:

      YES, IT IS!! And haha, I was worried it might be a bit distracting, but I’m glad it isn’t! So, so happy you love it, Larissa. :DDD I was getting bored of my old one (even though I made that myself too), and it’s really encouraging that everyone seems to be loving the new design so far!

      I was kind of going for the vintage look, so I’m glad that someone spotted that. ;) Thank you for such an awesome comment, girl!! <333

  13. This is such a cute and fun tag! Loved the color scheme and the creativity behind the photos here – it looks amazing! Thanks for sharing this Megan – so cool to see what you found! ♥

    1. Megan says:

      So glad you liked it, Zoe!! :D

  14. Finding contemporary books to match some of those ‘find me’ challenges would be impossible for me. I think I own.. 3 contemporary books, haha. Weapon -> Throne of glass would be my pick too.
    Let the sky fall; I love the placement of the book :)

    (and you new design IS GORGEOUS)

    1. Megan says:

      Haha, it’s good to know that at least I’m not alone. xD We need a sci-fi/fantasy version of this tag! And eeep, thank you so much, Mel! <33

  15. Jules says:

    YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY IS SO GORGEOUS! GAH <3 MAKES ME WANT TO RUN TO THE BOOKSTORE AND BUY SOME BOOKS! And btw (I'm so sorry for saying this so late, school is lame huhu) ILOVE THE NEW BLOG DESIGN. SO FUN AND CUTE :D

    1. Megan says:

      DON’T FIGHT THE URGE. ;) But thank you — I’m so glad that you like it! I was worried at first that people would find the picture edits weird, but it’s a relief that they don’t. And don’t worry, you’re not late at all! I just changed my blog design earlier this week, hehe. Thanks again, hon! <3

  16. Wow, girl these photos are gorgeous! I just want to look at them and swoon all day:)
    Plus, I actually love the rumpled covers. They look cute and pretty!

    1. Megan says:

      Thanks, Mishma! I’m so glad you think so. :D

  17. Faye M. says:

    LOLZ, I’d probably fail this tag because I don’t really have much physical books and I don’t have any covers that have half of these tags. I love all the pictures, though!!! You’d be a great bookstagrammer ;P
