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:
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!
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:
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.
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.
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:
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:
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!
