My Life In Books Tag

I saw this tag on Marie from drizzle and hurricane books‘s page and really liked it, so I took her invitation to participate!  I was also tagged by Becca at ghostystories! Thanks Becca!

I decided to only use books on my shelves, since there are a ton of them!

1. FIND A BOOK FOR EACH OF YOUR INITIALS

R: Red Rising by Pierce Brown
O: One Plus One by Jojo Moyes

I haven’t read either of these yet. I’m very excited for Red Rising and think it will be right up my alley. I’m not a huge contemporary fan, but I’ve heard good things about Jojo Moyes, so I’ll give this a shot.

2. COUNT YOUR AGE ALONG YOUR BOOKSHELF – WHICH BOOK IS IT?

My age-book is The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. I really liked this book and am very excited for the movie!

3. PICK A BOOK SET IN YOUR CITY/STATE/COUNTRY.

I didn’t actually know this, but I googled books set in Denver and Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne was on the list! I’ve been collecting this series for a bit and I’m now even more excited to dive in.

4. PICK A BOOK THAT REPRESENTS A DESTINATION YOU WOULD LOVE TO TRAVEL TO.

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin takes place on a Martha’s Vineyard style island that sounds so quaint and beautiful. I would love to live in a place like this in the future.

5. PICK A BOOK THAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR.

It’s a tie between the pink in This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales and the green (though maybe a bit brighter) in Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt. I absolutely loved This Song Will Save Your Life – check it out if you haven’t already! I have heard nothing but good things about Tell The Wolves I’m Home and plan to get to this one soon.

6. WHICH BOOK DO YOU HAVE THE FONDEST MEMORIES OF?

Kind of goes without saying, but Harry Potter.

7. WHICH BOOK DID YOU HAVE THE MOST DIFFICULTY READING?

No picture for this one because I don’t keep books I don’t like, but I’d go with any of the following:

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover (due to terrible themes)

Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout (review here – contains spoilers)

Last Summer by Sarah Dessen (Goodreads review here)

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire (also terrible themes)

8. WHICH BOOK IN YOUR TBR PILE WILL GIVE YOU THE BIGGEST SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT WHEN YOU FINISH IT?

20151031_13230320151031_132140

These bad boys! They’re some serious chunkers and very intimidating! These are the first two books in the Kingkiller’s Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss. I’ve heard really good hype around these though, so I will read them.


If you’ve heard of any of these books, I tag you!

Halloween Book Tag

 Halloween Book Tag

No better way to celebrate Halloween than to eat candy and do a fun tag.

Thank you to the lovely Orang-utang Library for the tag!


1. Carving pumpkins- what book would you carve up and light on fire?

15749887

That’s an easy one – Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. There are loads of people that love it and I just don’t understand. It spotlights an abusive, possessive, co-dependent relationship and plays it off as the romance of the century. It’s got terrible themes and I absolutely hate this book.

2. Trick or treat- what character is a trick, what character is a treat?

18180495TheNightCircus

Eli from Vicious by V.E. Schwab is a trick. He always has ulterior motives and you never know what’s going to happen when he’s near. Celia and Marco from The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern are treats. Just read about them and you’ll understand!

3. Candy corn- what book is always sweet?

18166936

The Strange and Beautiful Life of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton is sweet in the most heartbreaking way. It’s such a good read – I highly recommend.

4. Ghosts- what character would you love to visit you as a ghost?

13138635

Tarver from These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. a) He’s really dreamy. b) He’s a badass. c) He’s so supportive and wise.

5. Dressing up in costume- what character would you want to be for a day?

021915_ReadyPlayerOne_Cover

Wade from Ready Player One by Ernest Cline so I could play around in the Oasis!

6. Wizards and witches- what is your favorite Harry Potter moment?

2

Pretty much every appearance of Luna. She’s always true to herself and is such a fiercely loyal friend. Definitely one of (if not THE) favorite characters in the series.

7. Blood and gore- what book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for awhile?

7094569

I haven’t had to take a break, but I’ve really been savoring Feed by Mira Grant. I’m reading it right now and am really enjoying it.
