Good morning bookworms!
I am a little late with
yesterday today’s post. I’ve had a really busy week with work and travel, and yesterday I was sitting on the plane drafting this for you all (photo evidence attached!!). Then when I landed I forgot to post, and I still need to finish my monthly wrap up and challenge wrap up for November too! But I WILL get there!!
Back in September the lovely Siobhan @ Siobhan’s Novelties tagged me in the Waffle book tag, and I am so pleased because I’ve actually been wanting to do this for quite some time!!
- Link back to the original creator, Kat @ Novels & Waffles – also, if you haven’t been to Kat’s blog do yourself a favour and head on over. Not only is her aesthetic gorgeous, she writes really lovely content, and her book reviews are amazing!!
- Feel free to use any of the waffle graphics in this post, just make sure to credit her (pretty please with lots of maple syrup on top) (I’m definitely going to be using them because they’re super cute!!!)
- Tag as many people as you want (or don’t want) to. No pressure here, folks
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – an actual classic, but I love it so much. I think it’s actually been a couple of years since I’ve read it, but I really want 2020 to be the year of rereads and actually making a dent in my backlist (as opposed to almost doubling it…)
Uhhhh… I have not been reading wholesome books lately!! In fact, I’m struggling to think of one!! Let’s go with… Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. It’s not wholesome in that Simon gets bullied and blackmailed, but Simon Spier himself is wholesome.
Definitely Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I had an abridged copy of the book when I was young (like, real young), and then I read the full story when I was about 12. I quickly moved onto the other three books in the series, and I’ve read the whole set a couple of times in my life. This is another one for the reread pile.
Sugary sweet… I’m probably going to go with Anouk from Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd. Poor little Anouk was not only sweet, but ridiculously naïve. Mostly with good reason, but it can still be frustrating to watch! I’m also glad that she grows up in Midnight Beauties!!
For this one I’m choosing All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris. This is not a sad book. It is, however, the ninth book in the Aurora Teagarden mysteries and Charlaine really should have left it at eight. This book has pretty much ruined that series for me, and so I’ve put off reading book ten…
Oooh… OK, this one is a bit left field for me, but I’m sure there are other books out there that might be similar?! I’m going with The Rook by Daniel O’Malley. The Rook is almost like a spy thriller, who-dun-it book, but the characters have special powers and abilities (like mutants), and the setting is a public service organisation in London. It sounds like a really strange mish-mash of genres, but it’s seriously still one of my favourite books.
I mean… there’s always The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater that I haven’t screamed about for a while, and it’s still one I think about all the time. Quests for dead Welsh Kings, Broken Boys, racing cars, fighting demons, hordes of trouble and magical forests where the trees speak Latin. This is definitely one of my fave series ever.
I do love a good bookish pin!! (Just in case you can’t tell…) But I also love mugs, bookmarks, stickers (especially vinyl ones for my laptop) and book sleeves!
I’m feeling a bit lazy this morning, so if you WANT to do this, then please consider yourself tagged!! (Don’t be shy!!)
