ThursTag: My A-Z of books


This is another of those tags which I had stashed in my MASSIVE TAG DOCUMENT. I figured I would give it its time to shine! So here we go with this week’s tag:

ThursTag A-Z

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Probably Matt Haig! He’s written a fair few kids books and adult books.

Best sequel ever:

WOAH. NO. Although, I’ll probably hand it to Song of Sorrow. I know: you’re all shocked!

Currently reading:


As I type this (on Sunday), I’m reading Otto and the Tattercoats by Matilda Woods! 

Drink of choice while reading:

Depends where I am as to if I’m even drinking anything at all. However if I have to say ONE thing, it’s probably tea! Breakfast tea preferably!

E-reader or physical book:

I mean, I’m team BOOKS, but if I have to, it’s PHYSICAL books all the way!

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school:

Would have? None of them would have dated me haha!
Would have wanted to? Probably Emily from No Big Deal. She’s amazing.

Glad you gave this book a chance:

36531579. sy475

The Smoke Thieves. I almost gave up on it part way through because it just wasn’t doing much for me, but I enjoyed it by the end!

Hidden gem book:

My go to answer for this probably isn’t much of a hidden gem around these parts anymore, but I’ll go for Viper by Bex Hogan because I never see many people talking about it and I want more people to read it!

Important moment in your reading life:

Is it cliche to say the moment I wrote my first review on my blog? Or the first time I went to a blogger event? As an adult, they’ve been really important to me. As a child, I’d say it was finding Miss Honey in Matilda. She showed me the person I wanted to be as an adult.

Just finished:

45892741. sy475

Run, Rebel by Manjeet Mann. It was bloody brilliant. It’s out later this year from Penguin and I think people are going to ADORE it.

Kind of books you won’t read:

There’s nothing that’s every completely off my list, but I’m not likely to read anything political, erotic or historical (unless it’s children’s or YA ha!)

Longest book you’ve ever read:

Longest book in recent times? The Toll by Neal Shusterman. I need all of you to read the Scythe series because it is REMARKABLE.

Major book hangover:

The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven. I finished that and was like ‘How do you top that? How do you get more than that?’ I loved that book with all that I could possibly be.

Number of bookcases you own:

In my house? 1. But that doesn’t account for all of the boxes I store books in haha

One book you’ve read multiple times:

I only really have one answer for this because I’m not a rereader: Matilda. Although I do end up rereading books when I read them with my kids, so I guess that’s not entirely true!

Preferred place to read: 

On a bus/train, or sat in a comfy corner of a cafe with a cuppa. Either by myself or on a reading date.

Quote that inspired you/ Gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

Oh lord, I’m so bad with this kind of thing. I don’t know. Emily’s speech at the end of No Big Deal though.

Reading regret:

Hmmm. I don’t know? I don’t think I have one… that I can think of!

Series you started and need to finish:

I’m really good at finishing series that I’ve started (WHEN the books are out anyway). I can’t think of one off the top of my head that I’ve started and not finished and all of the books are out.

Three of your all time favourite books:

You guys know me by now. I refuse to answer these questions.

Unapologetic fangirl for:

Melinda Salisbury. Absolutely no shame.

Very excited for this release more than all others: 

Image result for hold back the tide

OH LORD. ONLY ONE? I can’t NOT say Hold Back The Tide.

Worst bookish habit:

Owning all the books and not reading them.

X marks the spot- start on the top left of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book:

Wing Jones by Katherine Webber. A book I would wholeheartedly recommend to all of you. I love that book (and Katie) so much!

Your latest purchase:

46751156. sx318

Sam Wu is Not Afraid of Zombies by Katie and Kevin Tsang. Such a fun series! If you’ve got kids, it’s a brilliant series!

Zzzzz Snatcher book (the book that kept you up way too late):

So so so so many books. I remember having an absolute marathon of reading the Harry Potter books for the first time a few years back. That was many late nights!

And there you go! The A-Z tag: done and dusted. If you fancy doin g this tag, go for it!

See you soon for more bookish fun!
