Never Have I Ever Book Tag

I wasn’t planning to post another book tag this week. I’m in high reading spirit, but I’m not in the mood to draft reviews or anything else, so… a book tag it is! 😀

And this is another tag that I was actually tagged for! Yeahie!! 😀

I was tagged by Lisa at Way Too Fantasy for this tag that I’ve never done before. 🤣🤣 (Yep, cracking myself up here.) It was created by Madame Writer/Anne With a Book.

Apparently, there are rules:
  1. Link back to the original creator! (Madame Writer)
  2. Link back to the person who tagged you!
  3. Answer all prompts.
  4. Add one more prompt of your own.
  5. Tag at least five people.
  6. Don’t lie.
  7. Have fun!

Never Have I Ever… read a later book in a series before reading the first book.

Meet the Book Blogger Tag

It’s been a while since I’ve done a tag that I was actually tagged for because I tend to procrastinate on all things, like the good procrastinator that I am.

But, since I’d like to procrastinate a bit more on doing book reviews, here’s the Meet the Book Blogger Tag!! 😀 I was tagged for it by Aaron at Swords & Spectres. The tag was created by Samantha and Amber, the Bibliomavens.

Who is your all-time favourite book character?

I Hate Spring Book Tag

spring flowers

If, unlike me, your body hasn’t alerted you to spring’s arrival with a suddenly stuffy nose, sinus headache, and your eyes threatening to itch although the trees haven’t yet started to spread their pollen around yet, then consider yourself lucky. I have a love/hate relationship with spring. I’m always grateful for its arrival after suffering through the harsh, cold, drab months of winter. My heart sings with the lengthening of the days and the hint of warmth in the air and is comforted (sometimes) by the beat of its rains. But I also suffer.

I sneeze. I sniff. I cough. I itch. My head pounds until I find a way to alleviate clogged nasal passages, and I sometimes spend days in fear of touching my eyes because doing so might make the itching worse to the point where I can’t open them. This wasn’t always the case. For years, I could enjoy spring without suffering. Then, suddenly, one year in college the seasonal allergies overtook me and I’ve been suffering through spring ever since…

And… that’s my sob story about spring. Now you understand why I’m doing this tag.

The I Hate Spring Book Tag was created the Biblionyan.

Time Tantrum: Name a book — either a standalone or from a series — that had large time lapses that frustrated you greatly.

I’m the only person I know who loves the time change, lol. After suffering through winter, I’m glad that I wake up with the sun twinkling in my eyes.

Books I Want to Read (But Don’t Want to Read) Tag

And here we are at the final tag for this BOOK TAG WEEK!!

It wraps up my weeklong birthday celebration, which, unfortunately, did not involve pancakes. But there’s hope for the weekend.

The Books I Want to Read Tag was created by Jamishelves. Since these are books on my TBR that I haven’t read, I won’t give brief descriptions of the plot as I usually do.

A book you feel the need to read because everybody talks about it

Spyro Book Tag

My weeklong birthday celebration BOOK TAG WEEK continues! 😀

This time, as a throwback to my childhood, I’ve decided to do the Spyro Book Tag, which was created by Tânia at My Lovely Secret. I found the tag over on Kristin Kraves Books a couple years ago and knew I had to do it one day. I loved the Spyro the Dragon video game as a kid, although I sucked at it. Still, it was fun and it’s centered on a dragon, and I love dragons!

Well, enough reminiscing. To the tag!

Pancake Book Tag

Aha! Yes! I am back with another book tag for my weeklong birthday celebration BOOK TAG WEEK!!! 🤣🥳🤣🥳

Since it’s my birthday week, I thought that I should do a tag centered on one of my favorite foods — pancakes! 😊 Every year on my birthday, I take time off to visit a restaurant for brunch, and that restaurant MUST serve pancakes because that’s all I want to eat on my birthday. Hence, I often end up at an IHOP, lol. I spend the day enjoying pancakes or waffles or French toasts. I love all three.

So here’s the Pancake Book Tag. It was created by Becky at Blogs of a Bookaholic.

I love me some pancakes with a sprinkling of sugar. I find it so teasing; teasing me with its sweetness before I even pour the syrup.

Feminist Book Tag

I’m continuing my weeklong birthday celebration BOOK TAG WEEK with the Feminist Book Tag!! because it’s Women’s History Month.

I found the tag over on Spotlight on Stories. I tried to find out who created the tag, and it seems like it might be a French blogger over on La Voix Du Livre, but I’m not sure because the blogger mentions someone called “PKJ” as having created it. So, yeah, I managed to confuse myself and since I’m no book tag detective, let’s just get to the tag!

(Btw, check out the Women’s History Book Tag — another one that’s perfect for this month.)

Over 30 Book Tag

Hey!! It’s my birthday week, so I’m celebrating it with a… BOOK TAG WEEK!! 🤣🥳🤪 Guess who’s excited?!

Well, I was going to stick with a tag theme for the week, but… I’m not feeling that. I’m just gonna consult the looooonngg list of book tags I’ve been keeping around and do the first one I see.

— Except for this one. Since it’s my birthday week, I thought I should at least kick it off with something birthday-related. So here’s the Over 30 Book Tag, which was created by booktuber InkNotBlood. I consider myself tagged by my buddy-reader in all things Robin Hobb (and probably Death Gate Cycle, lol) Emily at Embuhleeliest.

Name one of your favorite books that features a protagonist who is 30 years old or older.

The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold

Black Blogger Book Tag

A great thing has happened: I’m all caught up on book reviews. Yeahie me! Thing is, I have nothing else planned, so here’s a book tag.

I was tagged by the wonderful Rae at Rae’s Reads and Reviews for the Black Blogger Book Tag, which is actually the Black Booktuber Tag created by Blkandsapphicreads. But since I’m a book blogger — Black Blogger Book Tag it is.

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

Umm, well. What can I say? I started blogging a long time ago so that I can chat about books with people as interested in books as me, but I only started to take blogging seriously a couple years ago.

I go by Zezee on here and other social media channels I use that’s associated with my blog, but that’s not my name. I was born and raised in Jamaica before moving to the U.S. in my teens, so… as of right now, I’ve spent a little over half my life living in the U.S. I read just about everything, but I love fantasy novels and zombie movies and am SO hooked on Kingdom, the South Korean TV show on Netflix, right now.

Who’s a Black author you love that a lot of people don’t know about?

Reread Tag

I’m in the mood to do a book tag so since I love to reread, I decided to do this one that I found over on Kristin Kraves Books.

The Reread Tag was created by Brianna at Brianna’s Books and Randomness, and it’s a perfect one for me. I love to reread and often do so. I think it is the reason why I haven’t read as many books as I wish I did because I keep on revisiting ones I’ve read before. I like re-experiencing stories I love or revisiting books that intrigued me when I first read them to see if I pick up on new details. I even revisit books I dislike and end up loving them on reread, or still hating them. Rereading is just another great way to experience books.

A childhood favourite that you could read 100 times and still love

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

I put this down as my answer while wondering if that’s really true because it has been some time since I last reread it. However, I strongly believe that if I should reread it now, I’ll still fall under its spell and love it. It’s one of the first fantasy novels I remember reading, and it holds a special place in my bookish heart.
