The Bookish Adventure Tag

Mandy and Shea from Book Princess Reviews has tagged me in a lot of tags in the past few months, and I don’t think I’ve done any of them… *shame face* In fact, in this tag which I am getting from Mandy, I wasn’t actually tagged! So why am I doing it now? I don’t know, it’s at the top of my list. *shrug* If you aren’t following Mandy and Shea at Book Princess Reviews, you need to, go.

Rules

magine that you are an intrepid literary adventurer- braving the harsh bookish wilderness, traversing jungles of pages and slashing through vines of words. Where in the vast world of books would you go?

  • Write about one place mentioned in a book you wish you could visit and why.
  • List 3-5 things that you would do there.
  • Mention which souvenirs, if any, you would bring back with you.
  • Then tag some more literary explorers and please link back to the creator (Umairah @ Sereadipity) so I can see all of your adventures!

My Bookish Destination

Hogwarts, obviously. It’s literally the most magical place in the world, and I want to be there and make friends and learn to do magic and have a pet cat and just be a witch. *sigh*

Which Characters from my Favorite Books am I?

I saw this from Margaret at Weird Zeal this summer, and loved it. Mostly because I’m secretly in love with Buzzfeed-style quizzes. So even though it’s not really a tag, I am unabashedly stealing it. Hope you don’t mind Margaret!

Six of Crows

Quiz: Which Six of Crows character are you? (Grishaverse.com)

What I think I’ll get: I don’t know, I haven’t read this series. So sue me.

What I got: Kaz

Y’all tell me, is that good? I don’t know that I completely agree with this assessment, I’m not usually considered a leader or tricky… but I do like to plan things!

Do I Have That Book? Tag

I saw this tag on Kristin Kraves Books forever ago. She always does the most interesting tags! She didn’t tag me, but it was just such an interesting post that I saved it! And then … never got to it. So here we are! This should be interesting because I have a lot of books, but not that much variety. Well, let’s see what happens, shall we?

1. Do you have a book with deckled edges?

Oh, thousands. The first one that comes to mind is Eragon, which I was absolutely obsessed with in high school. Personally I’m not that in to deckled edges (GASP!). I like to play with the pages while I read, and that’s a lot harder to do with deckled edges. But I’m not going to complain about them either.

Tag: Books That I’ll [Probably] Never Read

Hello everybody! I’ve got about a bazillion and a half book tags in my bookmarks bar right now, so I’ll probably be bringing you a tag a week for a bit. I don’t know why I still enjoy doing tag posts so much, but I just do. 🙂

I saw this one back in March on The Tin Kitchen, and since I’ve been going through a bit of an existential crisis regarding all of the books I will never get to read (*pauses for a round of sobbing*) I immediately connected with it and decided to save it for a rainy day. That rainy day never came, but I’m going with it anyway!

P.S. If you don’t follow Katie at The Tin Kitchen, I highly recommend you do, she has a great voice and always has thoughtful things to say.


A really hyped book that you’re not interested in reading

Guys, I’m sure that The Poppy War is just brilliant, but I have no intention of reading it. I’ve seen a lot of content warnings, and that’s just not for me most of the time. I’d rather cuddle up with something G-rated.

The Versatile Blogger Award

So I was going through my large bookmark folder of book tags, and I noticed that I’ve been tagged for this one not once, but TWICE. Most recently Dani at Mousai Books, but also back in FEBRUARY I was tagged by Jayati at It’s Just a Coffee Addicted Bibliophile. Worse, it appears I *never actually thanked her*

SO. Jayati, THANK YOU FOR NOMINATING ME!!!! I am sorry for not thanking you, usually I’m not such a spaz. (That’s a lie, I’m just a complete mess right now. Blame grad school.)

The rules are pretty simple, thank the person who nominated you (check), nominate fifteen people (holy smokes!) and tell everyone seven things about yourself (yikes).


1. I like books?

Seriously, I hate the “tell us about yourself” prompts. I’m so boring that the only thing I can think of is I like books.

Six Degrees of Separation: Where the Wild Things Are to The Night Circus

Six Degrees of Separation is a monthly blog event hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest. It’s inspired by the 6 Degrees of Separation, a movie game where you attempt to connect actors in six movies or less. But we do it with books!

This month we’re starting with Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.


Where the Wild Things Are was a favorite at my house. For a few months we were reading it every night. I love the illustrations, and my son loved the wild rumpus. These days he is more into a Frozen comic book, but I still pull out Where the Wild Things Are every once in a while. Another great book that features a journey on a ship to a wild land is…

Mid-Year Freak Out Tag – 2019 Edition

I’ve done this tag the last two years, and since I don’t do monthly wrap-ups and the like, I think that I really enjoy this way of giving myself a year-so-far summary. I’ve had plans to do this post for a week or so, but after being tagged by The Orangutan Librarian I’ve decided to bump it up to now. 🙂

Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2019

I haven’t ranted and raved about Bel Cano the way I’ve wanted to, mostly because I haven’t been around all that much so far this year. But y’all. THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING. I am so in love. So many feels.
