Sunday Brunch Book Tag

There’s a book tag for just about every topic. Since it’s Sunday, I wanted to do a fun, relaxing post to match my mood: The weather is great, so I’m mad chill right now (and lazy). It’s one of those kick-back, chill, and watch Netflix type of Sunday, and I’m loving it.

I couldn’t find a book tag themed specifically for the day (and didn’t feel like creating one), so I was glad when I found this Sunday Brunch Book Tag because the second best thing to do on Sunday (the first being chilling and reading) is to have brunch. I love party brunches, though I’ve yet to make it to one. I’m always too lazy to leave my house to attend them, but they sound so fun! Anyway, the tag…

It was created by Deborah, the Reading Chick, and I was doubly happy to do it because I love breakfast food, so this is now one of my favorite book tags because of all the yummy food.

American classic: eggs, bacon, and toast

Woo!!!… it’s simple and ordinary, but I love it. Easy to whip up and there’s bacon. Bacon makes everything better. 🙂

Cake Flavored Book Tag

This is probably the fastest I’ve ever seen and done a book tag because I saw this on Rachel’s blog, Life of a Female Bibliophile, yesterday and BOOM! I post it today. 😀

I’d give myself a pat on the back if I could reach it, but I’m too lazy to stretch that far right now.

Anyway, I love me some cakes and books, so I thought “Hell yeah, I’ll do that cake flavor book tag!” I just wish I had some cake while I do it.

Chocolate: a dark book you absolutely love

That photo is actually of a chocolate tart, but I decided to use it because it makes my mouth water. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a chocolate tart and that picture makes me think they’re scrumdiliumcious. I need one in my life!

2017 Year in Review Book Tag

Here’s an interesting book tag created by booktuber Farah of A Booktube Book. She created a similar tag last year where she reviewed the major headlines of 2016 and use them to create book-related questions. The tag below is based on events that took place in 2017.

Note: I didn’t limit the books to just those I read in 2017 but most of them are.

First ever female Doctor Who: Favorite female protagonist

Velvet

The first answer to come to me was Velvet, the titular character in an espionage comic book series written by Ed Brubaker and illustrated by Steve Epting. Velvet works as a secretary at a covert agency, but only few know that she’s actually a spy. The story takes off when she’s framed for a colleague’s death.

April Showers Book Tag

The forecast for my blog today is the April Showers Book Tag, which was created by Sabrina from Beyond the Book Reviews and Alexis, who’s Mad for Books, Luv. Both Sabrina and Alexis created the tag as part of their monthly book tag meme, where they create book tags based on a selected theme.

This is such a perfect tag for the month! In my part of the world, April has always had a hard time trying to decide what it wants to be: warm and sunny, grey and rainy, cloudy and snowy. It’s a confusing month and I never dress well for the weather. I’m always either over- or under-dressed because the weather forecasters are hardly ever helpful. But anyway, to the tag.

Share a book with water on the cover:

Dry by Augusten Burroughs

Dry is Burroughs’s memoir about battling alcoholism.

That’s what I got from reading the synopsis on Goodreads — I’ve never read this book before, but I’m familiar with the cover. I’ve never forgotten it — the cover — because it’s one of my favorite book covers. It implies so much from the title and the effect placed on the words to make it seem as if some sort of liquid has caused the ink to streak down the page. I love it. I might give this one a read one day.

Spring Book Tag

It’s spring!!! 😀 😀 😀

Actually, I’m hoping it will be spring soon and the weather would act like it. I can tell that it’s right around the corner and wants to settle in, but winter refuses to let go. Every time we get a hint of spring in the air, cold winds blast us and snow threatens to fall. Winter just refuses to let go. (It’s so clingy this year.)

Anyway, I found this book tag over on Sara LeTourneau’s blog. It was created by Sabrina from Beyond the Book Reviews and Alexis, who’s Mad for Books, Luv. Both Sabrina and Alexis created the tag as part of their monthly book tag meme, where they create book tags based on a selected theme.

What’s on your spring TBR?

Easter Book Tag, Pt. 2

You could say I’m going overboard with these book tags. You wouldn’t be wrong. (Another Easter book tag??!! What?! Why?!) But it’s BOOK TAG WEEK, so any and all book tags can be posted. Plus, I couldn’t pass up this book tag when I saw it — though it was in Italian and I neither speak nor read Italian and had to use Google Translate to understand what was said. BUT! Google Translate worked perfectly (I think) and now I can do this originally-in-Italian Easter Book Tag. Yeahie me!! 😀 😀

I do not know if this blogger created the tag, but I found it on Il Profumo Delle Parole. Below, I’ll include the questions/requests in Italian, as I saw it on the blog, and in English, translated by Google Translate.

Cioccolato e dolci non ne hai mai abbastanza, un morso tira l’altro: Scegli una saga di cui un libro tira l’altro.
Chocolate and sweets you never get enough, one bite pulls the other: Choose a saga of which one book pulls the other.

Chocolate Book Tag

There’s lots of chocolate around Easter time, so today I’ll do the Chocolate Book Tag created by A Daydreamer’s Ramblings for my second day of Book Tag Week.

A quick search for chocolate on Google gave me the image below, which made my empty stomach grumble. It looks so delicious! I’d love to have some. The photo links to this page that lists a recipe for Salted Dark Chocolate Tart. Yum! 🙂

Have you ever had a chocolate tart? I don’t think I’ve ever tried it before.
