How are you?
I’m sorry about that post yesterday. It was a little depressing, but I’m feeling a lot better today. I took the day off school today to study (wait..what?) and I got a lot done. I feel like I’m crawling up this mountain of homework and I can almost see the sun shining over the edge of the crest. I’m getting somewhere anyway. So, while I had a chance, I decided to have a quick break and write this tag.
I was tagged to do the My Life in Books Tag by Aura @ Oxford Writer’s Lounge on the 10th of October. 😳 Massive thanks for the tag and I’m sorry it took me so long to get to it!
So, let’s get started!
Find a book for each of your initials. (Sorry my name is staying anonymous, but you can know my initials) 😉
E) Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
L) Looking for Alaska, by John Green
L) Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan (this was all I could find at the time. I didn’t think about Lord of the Rings until some times later… it still counts though, right?)
Count your age along your bookshelf.
I’m 16 and I got Before I Die, by Jenny Downham. Good book, but I wouldn’t like it to happen to me…
Pick a book set in your city, state, country.
I wanted to put Joel and Cat Set the Story Straight, because that is set in the Gold Coast, which is only 4 hours drive from where I live, but I only have that as an iBook. So instead I put Tomorrow When the War Began, by John Marsden, which is set in New South Wales, Australia.
Pick a book that represents a destination you would love to travel to.
London 🙊 Or maybe just the 1800’s. Does that count as a place? 😂 I chose Clockwork Angel, by Cassandra Clare.
Pick a book that is your favourite colour.
Jinx, by Meg Cabot. Pink being the colour, in case you couldn’t tell. 😅
Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
I was going to try and pick something not obvious, but I feel like this is truly the only option. I was a normal person before I read this book and was magically transformed into a book nerd. Thank you J.K.Rowling.
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
His Dark Materials Trilogy, by Philip Pullman. Don’t get me wrong I loved these books, but reading the whole trilogy took me about a month to read, but it seemed like longer because it was a 3-in-1 and lugging it around was a chore (see exhibit a)).
Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest sense of accomplishment when you finish it?
When I first took the photos for this post (which was like three weeks ago…) my answer was Carry On: The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow, by Rainbow Rowell, because the book had arrived in the mail that day. I finished this in like two days (school days, may I remind you.) It was fantastic and I don’t know if I felt accomplished, but I felt majorly happy, so…. Also, I just wanted to put the cover of it on another one of my posts, because it’s super gorgeous and makes me happy and sad simultaneously. (if you want to see my review, you can find it here.)
Nominations: (As always if you have already done it or it’s just not your thing, feel free to ignore it)
Yay, a post with actual content, I hope you liked this, let me know what you think. 🙂 Let me know how your day has been!
I’m doing my best, but I may not be properly back and posting regularly for another 18 days (not that I’m counting…)
Love you lots,
