Happy Wednesday, bibliophiles!
I was in the mood for a book tag today, so I thought I’d try this one out. I found it over at Birdie’s Book Nook (who you should absolutely follow if you don’t already!). I haven’t been able to find who originally created the tag, so if you know, let me know and I’ll link to their blog.
This one looks like a lot of fun…let’s begin, shall we?
🔠A TO Z BOOK TAG🔠
A – Author you have read the most books from
I haven’t picked up a Warriors book since middle school, but given the sheer volume of books in this series (aren’t there…there’s probably 40 or 50 books now, right? I stopped at the 5th series 💀), I’d say that Erin Hunter is the author that I’ve read the most books from. These books were my childhood…
B – Best sequel ever
the emotional damage that Aurora Burning inflicted on me remains unparalleled…
C – Currently reading
I’m a little over halfway through Follow Your Arrow right now! I’m not super invested in the romance, but the bisexual rep is great.
D – Drink of choice
Definitely tea—hot cinnamon spice is my favorite!
E – E-reader or physical book?
As much as I love my Kindle, physical books always win. Can’t beat the feeling of having a physical book in your hand—plus, a Kindle can’t give you that book smell…
F – Fictional character you would’ve dated in high school
Auri and Kal from Aurora Rising are my ultimate bisexual panic, so I probably would’ve gone for either of them…
G – Glad you gave this book a chance
I don’t usually read historical fiction as often, but The Reckless Kind was an unexpected 5-star read!
H – Hidden gem
The Wide Starlight ended up being my first 5-star read of the year! It doesn’t get nearly as much praise as it should, it’s a stunning book!
I – Important moment in your reading life
Reading and subsequently falling in love with The Search for WondLa in 5th grade. I’d liked sci-fi books before, but I give that trilogy credit for being my gateway into sci-fi literature. Haven’t turned my back since.
J – Just finished
I finished The Final Strife yesterday! Definitely a long haul, but the worldbuilding was great.
K – Kind of book you won’t read
I don’t usually do horror, and I’m also not a huge fan of the kind of romance books with airbrushed, shirtless/scantily clad people on the covers. Again, no shade to the people that enjoy the aforementioned books, but they’re just not my thing.
L – Longest book you’ve ever read
Technically, Invincible: Compendium One is an anthology, but 1,092 pages is still pretty thick.
M – Major book hangover because of…
Aurora’s End WRECKED me…I think I re-read it two or three times before I could pick anything else up…
N – Number of bookshelves you own
Three—two for most of my books, and a smaller one for all my graphic novels and trade paperbacks.
O – One book you’ve read multiple times
I re-read The Kingdom of Back a few weeks back, and I loved it just as much as I did the first time!
P – Preferred place to read
Either the couch, my bed (at night), and when it’s warm enough, outside in the hammock.
Q – Quote that inspires you
For the sake of brevity, I’ll just link it here, but Neil Gaiman’s “Make Good Art” speech never fails to be an inspiration to me. Go read it. You won’t regret it.
R – Reading regrets
Spending any money—even just $4.99—on Off Balance. What an awful excuse for a sequel.
S – Series you’ve started and need to finish
I really enjoyed Surviving the City, I don’t know why I haven’t picked up From the Roots Up!
T – Three of your all-time favorite books
Aurora Rising, Heart of Iron, and Frankenstein have been my steady favorites for the past few years.
U – …I just looked through several iterations of this tag, and it looks like U got skipped somewhere down the line?
V – Very excited about this release
I need to pick up Godslayers soon—I think it just came out last month!
W – Worst bookish habit
I read relatively fast, and sometimes it comes back to bite me…I’ve learned to read my school books a little slower, at least.
X – X marks the spot. Pick the 27th book from your top left shelf.
Turns out it’s Nyxia! It’s been years since I’ve read this one, but I remember enjoying it.
Y – Your latest purchase
I bought Adaptation and a few other books on my Kindle for my trip to California in June. This one was my least favorite of the books I bought, but it was still decent. I finished it on the plane ride back.
Z – Z snatcher: book that kept you up way too late
nothin’ like staying up way too late reading The Darkness Outside Us and having a minor existential crisis, am I right
