Rainbow Book Tag

I’ve been on a roll, posting something almost everyday since last week. I feel so proud of myself! **Pats self on back.** Maybe I’m getting back that sweet blogging groove I had last year.

I’m kicking off the week with the Rainbow Book Tag, which I found on Rachel’s blog, Life of a Female Bibliophile. The rules are:

  1. Choose book covers from each color of the rainbow. Books that are your favorite from that color! If you can’t find a book of a certain color then choose a cover that has that color on it somewhere.
  2. The choices have to be books you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read.

And again we have another fun way to recommend books to folks. I’ll use the colors Rachel included in her post and will start with my favorite color —

Teal/Turquoise

Turquoise is such a cool, calm color. I love it because it reminds me of the sea. The ocean is often variations of blue, but the tranquil beaches I enjoy visiting back home have turquoise waters. If this is also your favorite color, check out Anita’s post on teal.

Birthstone Book Tag

It’s been a hectic week and my mind has been sluggish for most of it. I’ve tried to do some review or discussion posts, but working up the energy to do them after a busy day at work was almost impossible.

Since my birthday is almost here (woohoo!) and I’m in the mood to do a tag (oh yeah!), I’ve decided to do the Birthstone Book Tag. It was created by booktuber Jay G.

Btw, I just found this cool Pisces tattoo design. I think I’ll stamp all the posts I do in March with it.

Heroes of Olympus Book Tag

Continuing from the Greek Mythology Book Tag, here is the Heroes of Olympus Book Tag created by Jasmine at Flip That Page. The tag is based on Rick Riordan’s middle-grade fantasy series of the same name of which I’m a fan. It’s an entertaining story that follows the adventures of teenage demi-gods who are trying to save the world.

Greek Mythology Book Tag

I found this great book tag on My Tiny Obsessions. It was created by Jasmine at Flip That Page, who called it a bookish survey and included a section based on the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan, which I, of course, will do in a separate post since this would be quite long otherwise.

Gods of Olympus

Valentine’s Day Book Tag

I’m pretty proud of myself for doing this tag and posting it ON TIME for the event it’s for. I was tagged by Heather, the Sassy Book Geek, (thanks for tagging me!!) and the tag was created by CC’s Books.

A stand-alone book you love:

In Search of Lost Dragons

In Search of Lost Dragons by Élian Black’Mor (illus.) and Carine-M (illus.)

There are many stand-alone books I love but I chose In Search of Lost Dragons because it’s been a while since I’ve mentioned it. It’s an illustrated book packaged to look like the travel journal our protagonist carries as he documents the existence of dragons in Europe. If you love dragons and great illustrations, I highly suggest you check out the book. The illustrations are beautiful and I love all the little notes and maps in it.

Lunar New Year Book Tag

I know celebrations for the Lunar New Year over, but I really wanted to do this tag. It was created by Tiff at Mostly YA Lit and Joey at Thoughts and Afterthoughts to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I’ve always wanted to participate in the celebration of the Chinese New Year in my area, but I’m always either too busy or forget to, and now this tag almost passed me by. Well, here’s a late Lunar New Year celebration on my blog!

I guess we should start with our Chinese zodiac animal and I’m a

2016 Year in Review and Ringing in the New Year Book Tags

Since this week is about reflections and resolutions, I decided to end it with book tags that fit those themes.

To look back on 2016, I chose the 2016 Year in Review Book Tag, which was created by booktuber, Farah at A Booktube Book. I forgot which blog I discovered it on, but when I saw the categories, I immediately wanted to do it. It’s a humorous way to look back on a year filled with disappointing global events.
