Name in TBR Books Tag

This is a pretty sweet and simple book tag where you just need to spell out your name using books on your current TBR pile. My name (ADELE) was pretty easy for this but I literally only have one book for L that was hiding behind my bookmarks pot. I was tagged by the lovely Keira @Headphonesandhyperboles (she knows I’ve been struggling with blog posts this month haha).

Books On My Physical TBR That I Want To Read Soon

Like many other book lovers, I have quite a large physical TBR pile just waiting to be read. I’m really trying to not buy more books until I have read more of the books I already own. Here are the ones I want to read the most and will hopefully get to soon.

thehazelwoodThe Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

This one people either tend to love or not really like, I want to read it to see which side I fall. Plus I really love the synopsis for it, people traveling to fantasy realms is always up my alley. It has been sat on my shelves for at least 6 months now and it isn’t that long so I really to get to it.

A-Z Book Tag

Here is the first tag post on my blog, thanks to Lauren over at Northern Plunder for tagging me and I tag anyone that wants to do this tag for their own blog! Here goes..

A: author you’ve read the most books from

J. K. Rowling purely because of Harry Potter, though I’m getting pretty close to that with Banana Yoshimoto and Yukio Mishima books.

B: best sequel

I’m going to go with Catching Fire from the Hunger Games series.

C: currently reading

The Wicked King, it’s getting intense I’m scared.

D: drink of choice while reading

Whatever I happen to be drinking.

E: e-book or physical book

Both! Kindle is great for bed time reading because it lights up, during the day I usually read a physical book.

F: fiction character you would have dated in high school

I was always attracted to the dweebs at school so probably Ron Weasley.

G: glad you gave this book a chance

Throne of Glass. I heard so much love/hate regarding the series that I put off trying it, until I tried it. I’m now up to Queen of Shadows.

H: hidden gem book

Revenge by Yoko Ogawa, I will keep mentioning this book until everyone reads it.

I: important moment in your reading life

Watching PewDiePie’s first ‘book review’ video in early 2018 and hearing about Yukio Mishima. I decided to pick up one of his books after not reading a book in years and have been a regular book reader ever since. Cheers Felix.

J: just finished reading

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend, highly recommend!

K: kind of books you won’t read

I’m rarely in the mood to read contemporary because it’s not a big enough escape from reality for me.

L: longest book you’ve read

Battle Royale by Koushun Takami (617 pages).

M: major book hangover because of

Deathly Hallows, I dragged that book out for months because I didn’t want it to end.

N: number of bookcases you own

3, I would get more but lack of space.

O: one book you’ve read multiple times

I’m pretty sure I’ve yet to re-read a book!

P: prefered place to read

Laying in bed.

Q: quote that inspires you/gives you feels from a book

“He had never been willing to believe that life had to be as gray and dull as people claimed. He heard them saying: “Life is like that,” but he couldn’t agree. He never stopped believing in mysteries and miracles.”
Michael Ende, The Neverending Story.

R: reading regret

There are no books that I regret reading, but I regret NOT reading for so many years.

S: series you’ve started and need to finish

Throne of Glass.

T: three of your all time favourite books

Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

The Neverending Story by Micheal Ende

Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

U: unapologetic fangirl for

Death Note.

V: very excited for this release

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon.

W: worst bookish habits

Buying books and not reading them for months.

X: x marks the spot! start at the top of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Gryffindor edition.

Y: your latest book purchase

Orange The Complete Collection.

Z: zzz snatcher book, last book that kept you up way too late

The Twisted Tree by Rachel Burge, highly recommend!
