During the first half of book tags, I 100% admit that I avoided book tags. Between constantly doing them and reading them, I think I grew a bit tired of them. However, this summer I found myself gravitating towards actually doing tags again! Tags can be among my favorite type of blog posts to read, finding that you get to know the blogger as a reader and a bit of their personality outside all the books. I recently saw the My Life in Books Tag done by Carly of A Beauty and Her Books. This tag involves matching non-bookish/IRL things to books.
Books for Each Initial:
I tried to do this based on some of my more recent reads:
H– [A] Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer
A– As Kismet Would Have It by Sandhya Menon
L– Love at First Like by Hannah Orenstein
E– Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
Y– You’d Be Mine by Erin Hanh
Age (Count Along Your Bookshelf):
21– A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Book that represents a destination you love to travel to:
San Francisco, based on Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. While I’d obviosuly have to visit all the sites from the book, I especially want to go to SF to visit all the Full House-inspired sites and the Golden Gate Bridge for a Parks and Rec moment.
Purple, which reminds me of one of my favorite throwback YA books, The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares.
Fondest Memories Of:
One bookish memory I really haven’t discussed too much is my love for The Babysitters’ Club by Ann M. Martin! I remember so many trips to the library where I went straight to the rack filled with Babysitters’ Club books. The 1995 film adaptation is one of my favorite childhood movies and I’m really excited to check out the Netflix adaptation. I also own a few of the graphic novels illustrated by Raina Telgemier.
Most Difficulty Reading:
I recently reminded of this one and it’s definitely an unpoupular bookish opinion, but Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. This is one of my best friend’s favorite books and receives so much love in the book blogging community. I found myself not being able to push through the first few chapters. I think a lot of this was due to the fact it was a really busy point in the semester when I picked it up, and I wasn’t exactly in the mood for high fantasy.
What book on your TBR will you get the biggest sense of accomplishment from?
At the moment, it’s The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan because I rarely read classics outside of school and it’s been on my TBR for a while!
