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.

12 Days of Christmas Tag

Happy Boxing Day!!! 😀

Yes, I know Christmas has passed, but I was so busy last week that I didn’t get the chance to do all the Christmas tags I planned to do and I really want to post something today so… here’s a Christmas-themed tag! 🙂

I hope you all had a wonderful, fun Christmas filled with lots of love and cheer. Mine certainly was. All my family members weren’t here to celebrate, but I had a good time with those who were present. As for presents, I received a few but didn’t give any. I guess I’m a bit of a Grinch this year, eh.

Well, let’s get to the tag.

Winter Wonderland and the Jingle Bell Book Tags

I’m in a book tag mood so I thought I’d double up and do two in this post. First up:

Winter Wonderland Book Tag

Christmas is almost here, which means winter has already arrived. I know everyone loves a white Christmas, but I hope it doesn’t snow. Sure it would make the day seem magical, but I’d really rather not worry about snow on Christmas. I want a carefree Christmas.

I found this tag on the Book Window last month and decided to do it now because it fits the season. It was created by booktuber JackEatsLife.

What book is so happy and sweet that it warms your heart?

Winter Is Coming Book Tag

Really, winter is coming. I just got an alert on my phone saying that winter storm Decima is heading my way and I should expect snow and freezing rain. I live in such an awesome place, don’t I? 😐 Fingers crossed that it passes by and doesn’t affect me much.

Well since it is winter and a storm is on the way, I thought it best to do a book tag for the change in season. The Winter Is Coming book tag was created by booktuber Katherine Barka.

Snow: It is beautiful when it first falls, but then it starts to melt.
A book/book series that you loved at the beginning, but then, at the middle of it, you realized you don’t like it any longer.

I don’t like snow. I love looking at it from the warmth and comfort of my home and I love how it blankets everything and smothers the noise, but I hate shoveling it, touching it, walking in it, or having it fall on me. I think snow is deceiving. Anyway, for this question I choose

Family of Books Tag

I enjoy doing book tags. Yes, it’s true. And it’s that time of year when there are many, many tags to fit the drastic change in season and the family-centered holidays that pop up around this time of year. This and the most recent tag I did would have been great leading up to Thanksgiving, but since I discovered them after that holiday, I’m posting them late.

This one is the Family of Books Tag, where we’re given bookish questions that match certain family members. It was created by booktuber Acacia Ives.

Parent: A book that hugs you when you need it.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
