Thanks to Krista and Dawlyn at Little Blind Book Finds for tagging me in this one! I really enjoyed reading this tag, I thought the questions were great. Hopefully I enjoy making it just as much, and hopefully you all enjoy reading it!
You must be honest.
You must answer all the questions.
You must tag at least 4 people.
What book has been on your shelf the longest?
I’m not sure if this means my bookshelf or my TBR shelf, so I’ll answer both.
I’ve had a book called The Imperfectionists on my TBR shelf since like, 2013 or something. I bought it, then got swept up in some other series and just never got around to it. It’s lived in like, four different houses/apartments and never been picked up. I feel kind of bad for it, actually.
As to which book I’ve owned the longest, it’s hard to say. I still have most of my childhood picture books. The rattiest ones, however, are The Cat in the Hat Comes Back and Horton Hears a Who. Continue reading “I Dare You Book Tag”
Because it wouldn’t be Halloween without Hocus Pocus, and I wouldn’t be doing my job right if I wasn’t spreading the Hocus Pocus love, I’ve created my very own blog tag.
Dun dun DUUUUUNNNN!!!!!
I hope you enjoy it! I’ve certainly had fun dreaming it up and creating it.
There are no rules. It’s YOUR blog. But if would be nice if you linked back to me, and maybe the person who tagged you too. Share the love folks.
The Sanderson Sisters
A great trilogy.
It should be a surprise to no one that I’m choosing The Lord of the Rings. I mean, favorite book, obviously favorite trilogy. Do I need to say any more? Continue reading “Hocus Pocus Book Tag”
You know how sometimes a book gets SO big that it gets read by literally everyone, even people who don’t like to read? When I was in high school that happened to The DaVinci Code.
It was a book that inspired passionate opinions. One person told me if I read it I would go to hell. Another person told me that they were reading it because “you have to know what the other side thinks.” One of my best friends like it enough that she then proceeded to read every Dan Brown book ever written, and enjoyed Digital Fortress so much that she took the phrase “without wax” as her personal motto, and signed all our yearbooks that way. Still another friend told me it was absolute crap and she didn’t know what the big deal was.
Eventually the fervor died down, and now every Half Price Books in the world has more copies stacked on their shelves than they know what to do with, like Twilight or Harry Potter. But my husband and I both enjoyed it well enough that we still own a copy. Side note, before he met me my husband read like, five books, and the fact that one of them was The DaVinci Code really says something about either the book or the fad, don’t know which.
