The Ultimate Book Tag!

- Note: for the sake of avoiding repetition, I'll be avoiding questions I've answered in multiple past tags. -

Which Book Has Been On Your Shelf the Longest?


<3

What is Your Current Read, Your Last Read, and the Book You'll Read Next?


I just finished Albion Academy by Elijah David. I'm currently reading two books, Resistance by Jaye L. Knight and The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M. Valante, and I think I'll next read Mexico City Blues by Jack Kerouac.

What Book Do You Keep Telling Yourself You'll Read But You Probably Won't?



Maybe The Mitfords? It's an 800 page book of letters written between 6 sisters across Europe during WWII. It looks so good, but sO LONG. 

What Books Are You Saving for Retirement?

None! Retirement is way too far away. I'm incapable of restraining myself from reading a book for that long.

Last Page: Read it First or Wait Until the End?

Always read it first! Well, read the last couple sentences first. Maybe not the entire last page.

Acknowledgements: Waste of Paper and Ink or Interesting?

Not a waste, but still boring. And obnoxious. 

  • I dedicate this book to my dearest sister/daughter/husband/uncle/aunt/niece/dog. That's great. But I don't know your sister/daughter/husband/uncle/aunt/niece/dog and don't care about any of them, except maybe the dog. Next. 
  • I dedicate this book to my readers. Adorable. Done pandering?
  • I dedicate this book to myself. Congratulations. Maybe you can use your next dedication to explain to me why I should give a shit.
Which Book Character Would You Switch Places With?


Bilbo is the first who comes to mind, though I wouldn't mind switching with most LOTR or Hobbit characters. I want to go on a quest! And slay a dragon! And destroy a ring! 

Is There a Book That Reminds You of Something Specific? (Person, Place, Time, etc.)


There are plenty! But The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands will always remind me of my trip to New Orleans last year because I bought it at an independent bookstore there. Likewise, The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma reminds me of visiting my family in Minnesota last fall.

Name an Interesting Book You Acquired in an Interesting Way.

I don't think I have one? The most interesting way I've acquired any of my books is from a Little Free Library.

Have You Ever Given a Book Away for a Special Reason to a Special Person?

I've given away a lot of my childhood books to my cousin who's a 3rd grade teacher to use in her classroom, but nothing other than that.

Which Book Has Been With You the Most Places?


Les Miserables is the first that comes to mind. I kept it in my backpack for a long time, and it went overseas with me the first month I had it.

Any Required High School Reading That Wasn't So Bad Years Later?

I don't think so. I either liked it at the time (ex. Cyrano de Bergerac, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) or have never liked it (ex. Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451).

Have You Ever Read a Dan Brown Book?


Yes! I read The Da Vinci Code and loved it. I need to read more of them one of these days.

Have You Ever Read a Book That Made You Hungry?


Pita, hummus, grape leaves.....this kind of food is my shit, man.

Who is the Person Whose Bookish Advice You'll Always Take?

Definitely Adaline. Besides getting me obsessed with Nora Sakavic's All for the Game trilogy, she also introduced me to Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin, and We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson, all of which I've enjoyed.

Is There a Book You Love Even Though it's Out of Your Comfort Zone?


Blank Spaces is a fluffy contemporary romance. I like neither fluff nor contemporaries, and I enjoy romance least of all. Yet somehow I loved this book?? I chalk it up to the characters. They're all such beans.

I Tag

You. Go ahead. Do this tag. Live your dream.

  1. I always love your tags! I'd probably want to switch places with a PJO character, or Will from Ranger's Apprentice. Because mad weapons skills and cool cloaks. Or wait, no, ok Eragon. Sign me up I want a dragon. I love your new header by the way!

    1. Haha, no, but I do love Tangled! So you can consider it to be one if you want, because if I'd thought of it it honestly probably would have been. XD
