Wanderlust Book Tag

When in doubt, do a book tag.
When unprepared, do a book tag. 😀

I have a bunch of posts planned that I’m working on, but none are ready yet so….here’s the Wanderlust Book Tag!!

The tag was created by Alexandra who’s Reading by Starlight. I got lucky and was tagged by the Orangutan Librarian (grazie!).

Secrets and lies: a book set in a sleepy small town

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

This novel is a favorite. It’s about the Waverley sisters who were estranged until the beginning of this story when the younger sister returns home with a child. The Waverleys are a quirky bunch who live in a small southern town filled with eccentric characters. It’s said that the plants in the Waverleys’ garden are unique and that they have an apple tree that bears fruit that foretells one’s future.

This story was a quick, fun read. I loved the story, the characters, and the writing. I look forward to trying more by this author.

Bookish Heavenly Virtues | Book Tag

Aaand here’s the Bookish Heavenly Virtues Tag, which was created by Ola and Piotrek over at Re-enactment of the World. The duo created the tag to correspond with the Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag, which was created by a booktuber called BookishlyMalyza who seems to have stopped vlogging.

I did the Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag a while back and paired it with cute illustrations of cats representing the different sins. Check it out here!

Chastity: Which author/book/series do you wish you had never read?

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Many people like it. I don’t. I could have done without it, but instead I gave into the hype and tried it. I don’t think it’s as great as everyone says it is.

Characters of the Year Book Tag | 2019

I’ve decided to do this tag every year in addition to the roundup review of the books I read in the previous year. Characters need some love too and sometimes they stick with me longer than the story.

I believe this tag was created by Amanda, A Brighter Shade of Hope, at least that’s what I said in my previous posts of this tag; but Amanda’s tag link no longer works. Maybe it was taken down. I mention all this because I like to credit those who create the tags, and I really think she created this one.

Favorite male character of the year

Fitz

It’s Fitz from Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings epic fantasy series, which I completed in 2019. Fitz impressed me and ended up ripping my heart out in the last book, Assassin’s Fate. Oh my gosh! He has done and sacrificed so much for his family and kingdom…. I wasn’t happy with his fate by end of this book, but… I miss him so much. I wish there were more books (although the series is 16 books long and took me and Emily about 4 years to complete).

10 Year Challenge Book Tag

This tag was created by booktuber Rincey Reads, one of the first book vloggers I tuned in to and have continued to follow. She makes great book review videos, and she is co-host of Book Riot’s Read or Dead podcast, which is all about mystery and thriller novels.

So this book tag is about comparing your current reading habits and tastes to how they were 10 years ago. Well, 10 years ago I was an English major in college and hardly read for fun and when I did read, I didn’t keep track of what I read. So instead of comparing my current reading to what it was in 2009, I’ll instead compare it to 2014, which is about when I started to seriously track my reading, blog, and participate in the Goodreads reading challenge.

What was your favorite book in 2009 2014?

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! If you celebrated it, I hope you had a wonderful holiday with friends and family and good food and lots of laughter. If you didn’t celebrate it, I hope you had a wonderful day filled with great people, good food, and lots of laughter. 😀

I’m back to hosting my Book Tag Week. This time I’m doing the Fairy Tale Book Tag, which was created by Zoe at My Life with Books. I found it in Ann’s Reading Corner.

Beauty and the Beast:
Pick a book where love triumphs everything.
