Blair, over at Feed the Crime, shared this lovely book tag awhile back and I thought it sounded like fun. I know it’s a lot late, but here are my answers and if you like, join in and keep this game of tag going!
These kinds of blog posts are always a welcome challenge for me. They get me thinking about what I’m reading and what I could be reading… opening my eyes to new and interesting genres.
Recently Watched: The last book you finished reading.
I re-read this for my 2020 O.W.L.’s and it was just as good as I remembered it being. I love the world-building, the characters, and the romance.
Just an all-around entertaining read!
Top Picks: A book/books that have been recommended to you based on book you have previously read.
Recently Added: The last book you bought
I found The Radium Girls by Kate Moore on sale in a used book store for an absolute steal of less than $5.
Such an interesting tale of a really disturbing part of history. It’s really interesting how, at the time, people had no idea how dangerous radium was and how enamored the whole world was with this new discovery.
Popular on Netflix: Books that everyone knows about that I have no interest in…
Comedies: A funny book
The Soul of an Octopus was such a pleasant surprise! I listened to the audio book and it’s amazing.
Honestly, I thought it would be kind of a dry, scientific book about the intelligence of octopuses. In reality, it’s an entertaining story about the author’s relationship with various octopuses and the lessons she learned from them.
Dramas: A character who is a drama queen/king.
Animated: A book with cartoons on the cover
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is such an interesting little book. It really makes you think about life and how adults and children perceive things in entirely different ways.
Action and Adventure: An action packed book
Watch it again:
A book/book series that you want to re-read
I’d absolutely love to get back into the Valdemar universe and just roll around in it. Along with the Dragonriders of Pern, this was one of my favorite book series as a young adult. With brilliant world building, characters you’d love to hang out with, and adventures galore, the Valdemar series will hook you immediately!
New Releases: A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait to read.
A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone
Once Upon a Flock by Lauren Scheuer is probably one of my favorite non-fiction / autobiographies EVER! It’s a super cute, fun, and endearing tale of Lauren’s life with her chickens.
This is probably the book I suggest most to people.
Max: Tag some people
