Lover Book Tag

Ah, it’s been a while since I did a tag. I used to do at least one a week, but I haven’t been tagged in a while. Thanks to Dani @ Mousai Books for tagging me in this one! I don’t know if she knew what a big Taylor Swift fan I am, but here we are! Cue the music on my computer, and let’s go!

I Forgot that You Existed

A book from your childhood that you don’t remember anything about

I know I read The Sign of the Beaver in second grade, but I have no idea what I read. Probably because our teacher would just send us out in the hall to have book-club with no instruction or supervision. Yeah, because eight-year-olds can handle that…

The Wonderstruck Book Tag

Confession time: I’m a Swiftie!. After I graduated from college I listened to Speak Now basically on loop. I have all of her albums memorized beginning to end. Except for the newest one… Reputation. Not as much my thing.

So a T-Swift book tag??? YES PLEASE! When I saw this on Hammock of Books I knew I had to do it.

You’re Not Sorry

A book that unapologetically broke your heart

You guys are probably going to get tired of hearing me go on about Bel Canto by Ann Patchett, but it 100% qualifies for this question. I ugly cried for about 30 minutes after I finished reading it. In the best possible way. God, I am obsessed with this book.

What Makes Me Happy

I was tagged by Alex at coffeeloving bookaholic for this tag a couple of weeks ago. Going into a new school year, I definitely need to focus on the happy, so this is great timing!

5 Things That Make You Happy!

  1. My family
    I have the best family. My son is so filled with joy and fun, and every day he impresses me with his increasing wealth of knowledge. I’m having so much fun sharing my love of books with him! I have the best husband in the world, who takes such good care of me and our family. I don’t know what I would do without him. Family is the most important thing to me, and I’m lucky to have such a great one.
  2. Is books too obvious?

    Because, well, obviously. But they do! It’s so nice to have a chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of a busy, stressful day and join the world of my latest book. To leave behind my own struggles and cares for ones that I know will resolve in a couple of hundred pages! To learn more about myself and what it means to be human. To have adventure, and true love, and MAGIC.
  3. Music
    I actually studied music in college. Music has always been a huge part of my life. It’s rare to find me doing anything without music on in the background, and one of my favorite parts of the day is driving home with the music turned all the way up and singing along.
  4. Brooklyn 99

    We don’t watch a lot of TV at our house, with the exception of college football in the fall. (GO FROGS!) But we never miss an episode of Brooklyn 99. There has never been a show that has made me laugh out loud like this. Except Arrested Development, obviously. Andy Sandburg is such a lovable goofball, and the whole cast is genius together. Every character is my favorite. I like to think of myself as a mix of Amy and Rosa.
  5. Animals
    Any animal, really. They don’t even have to be cute. I’ve often said that I love animals better than people. I especially love my pets, Percy (cat) and Petey (dog). Percy will always be my first baby.
