It’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag. I wasn’t tagged for anything, but I felt like doing a tag, and after a brief search, I found this one on The Journeys of a Girl. It looked simple and fun, and easy enough that I can finish it and get back to reading A Conjuring of Light (because that book is so hard to put down).
Find a book for each of your initials.
S – Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick
A – All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
M – Morning Star by Pierce Brown
Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?
My bookshelves are not organized in neat rows, but here goes: number 27 is… The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. I loved this book when I read it (about twelve years ago), and definitely need to reread it at some point.
Pick a book set in your city/country.
The only book I’ve ever read that takes place partly in my city is Philip K. Dick’s A Scanner Darkly. It might not be my favorite, but there are surprisingly few books set in Orange County, Ca.
Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to.
Since it’s kind of fresh in my mind, I’m going to say A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab, because I would really love to go back to London one day. I spent four days there on a school trip, and didn’t get to see nearly as much as I wanted to.
Pick a book that’s your favorite color.
My favorite color is green, which means I get to pick one of my all-time favorite books: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I actually own two different editions, and both are gorgeous shades of dark green and gold. Which makes me really happy.
Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
Probably Harry Potter. It was just such a huge part of my childhood. (The Chronicles of Narnia comes in at a close second.)
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
Probably War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. It’s enormous and dense and it took me forever to read. But (with the help of Sparknotes) I did it!
Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?
After War and Peace, I think I’d have to go with Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. It’s large and intimidating, and I feel extra pressure to read it because – for some reason – I own
two three copies.
I hope you enjoyed this post! If you feel like doing this tag, then consider yourself tagged!
