Good morning bookworms!!
I’m kind of excited about today, because I have not done a TAG in ages!! Like, literal months.
*tries to find the last tag I did… gives up after scrolling for ever…*
And this one is so great!! HUGE thanks to Sofii @ A Book. A Thought. for tagging me in this!! ?
I’ve got a couple more coming soon, and one I’m really excited about!!! So let’s just get stuck into this one!!
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Answer all the questions down below
- Pingback to the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx
- Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about, to do this tag
? | What are you currently reading? | ?
Ahhhh… actually, I just finished a book before starting this … so … OH!! I really want to finish The Night Country by Melissa Albert this month, so maybe this is the reminder I need to go back to it?!
? | What’s your favourite ‘can’t-leave-the-house’ activity? | ?
I’m not sure I have a ‘favourite’ activity?! But I really love all the following items (mostly because they all fall under the category of “not working”):
- Animal Crossing / Stardew Valley
? | A book you’ve been meaning to read for forever | ?
AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh wow. Where to start? Ok, so three of the books I’ve probably had on my bookshelves the longest include The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton, and The Girl in Times Square by Paullina Simons. Will I ever read them?? Who know?!
? | An intimidating book on your TBR | ?
Ok, so I’m going to take an easy way out here, and say Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare. The book itself is HUGE, but more than that, I’m intimidated by the FIVE OTHER huge books I have to read before it… (I stopped at TMI, TID and TBC, so I have so many books to catch up on!!)
? | Top 3 priority books on your TBR | ?
Uhhh… I don’t really set priority books? I mean, I set TBRs, but we all know how crap I am at not actually sticking to them!! *laughing, but also, secretly crying* (why do I torture myself?!)
However, books I should really get to this year include:
- Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare
- Finnikin of the Rock – Melina Marchetta
- A Question of Holmes – Brittany Cavallaro
? | Recommend a short book | ?
Do graphic novels count?? Oh! Actually, I read The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember earlier this year. I already owned a copy, but lovely Bookish Luna picked it for my friend pick for my TBR and I (eventually) read it for my O.W.L.s, and I really enjoyed it, although it wasn’t what I expected at all!!
? | Recommend a long book | ?
Let it be known!! I want my legacy to be that I have convinced SOMEONE to read Magician by Raymond E. Feist. Not the half version that was split into two because the publishers were worried no one would read it, but the full length, unabridged, 841 page start of the Riftwar Saga (technically it’s books 1-2 of the Saga…)
? | Something you’d love to do while stuck at home | ?
So, I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but I would like a holiday. A #staycation if you will. I don’t want to sound ungrateful, because I absolutely am not, but I’ve been working from home since 13 March and the lines of work time and home time are definitely blurred… I have an office job where I usually work from 9-5 – maybe a bit longer if it’s busy. But, having my work laptop at home and plugged in all the time means that I’ve been working until 8pm some nights, and I ‘just log on to do something quickly’ on the weekend. This is 84% of the reason I haven’t been blogging much lately. And I understand this is a ME problem, but I’ve never been good at saying NO to work. So yeah, just a couple of days to catch up on blogging and reading would be lovely.
? | What do you plan on reading next? | ?
I kind of feel like I answered this at the start… but also, I have no idea what’s after that?! I know I have a TBR, but I’ve already ticked off like 2 books that were on it this month, so it’s essentially complete!! (Seriously, 2 books is GREAT for me!!) Maybe… A Question of Holmes?
