Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s Book Tag

I’ve been gone for a minute. It was a busy week for me, but I’m back with a book tag! 😀 I was tagged for this by the awesome Orang-utan Librarian earlier this year. See, I’m catching up on these tags.

The tag was originally created by Aimal at Bookshelves & Paperbacks whose evil plan is to make everyone crave ice cream!! Lol, kidding. But by the time I was done answering these questions, I craved ice cream. It’s hard to read the names of the flavors and not want to try them, so I shall make a trip to an ice-cream parlor soon. Good one, Aimal!

Pick a light, fluffy contemporary

Yeeaaa…I don’t read many light, fluffy contemporaries so I’ll go with my go-to answer for these questions, which is

Joy of Christmas Book Tag

It’s Christmas Eve!! 😀 Christmas is my favorite time of year though I haven’t shown much enthusiasm for it this year due to being busy but, as it’s just a few hours away, my excitement is beginning to build.

To celebrate Christmas Eve, I’ve decided to do the Joy of Christmas Book Tag, which was created by Sam, a booktuber on the YouTube channel, Novels and Nonsense. I love her videos. Hers was one of the first channels I followed when I started to tune in to booktube.

Well, here we go with the tag! 😛

Anticipation: The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating?

Hidden Bodies

You was such a good book that I can’t wait to read the second in this thriller series. It’s expected to be published on February 23, 2016.

Dashing Through the Snow Book Tag

Aaaannddd…I’m back with another tag post. This one is fitting for this time of year since it’s December and the horrible snow will start falling soon…maybe in January (hopefully it skips me!). I was recently tagged for the Dashing Through the Snow Book Tag by Ariana, the Quirky Book Nerd, and I decided to do it as soon as I can because it fits the season. Thanks Ariana!

Here are the rules:
  1. Thank the curator. [Shoutout to Astra, A Stranger’s Guide to Novels, for creating the tag.]
  2. Tag 5 people to spread the Christmas joy.
  3. Have fun! :p
Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree.

I bought myself so many books this year that it’s hard to answer this question. But it would be really nice to receive these:

A Folio Society copy of Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. It’s pretty pricey so I won’t be able to afford it any time soon, but I’d like to have it because the cover looks cool and it’s illustrated and I think I’ll love the story. I’d also like to receive George R.R. Martin’s A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms just because I’m such a fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series.

Around the World in YA Books Tag

I doubt I’ll catch up on all these tagged posts by the end of the year but no matter. Here’s another for your enjoyment.

I was tagged by the Orang-utan Librarian back in November. Gracias! Though I tried to find the original post (mostly out of curiousity), I was unable to, but I did stumble upon this post on B&N Reads that looks like it could have been the original. It lists 8 countries with books set in them and the majority of bloggers I’ve seen do this post list 8 as well. Coincidence or no? Hmm… Anyways, the rules:

The rules are simple. List a country, and then show which favorite book of yours is set in that country. You can use the countries I have used, add your own, or use completely different ones!

I’m going to divert from the rules a bit. I’ll list books set in the countries featured below, however, they are not all my favorites. Also, I haven’t read them all and they aren’t all YA books, as the title of this post indicates.

Desert Island Book Tag

It’s another tag! I’m almost caught up, though. Nearly there. I was tagged for this last month by Victoria at Addlepates and Book Nerds. Thanks Victoria!

Water: a book you simply cannot live without.

I wonder what book that is too. I don’t think there’s a particular book that I simply can’t live without but I would hate to part from my books so I guess my answer for this would be my entire collection of books.

Food: a book that is a close second on your favorites list.

Probably Eat, Pray, Love. It’s so hard to rank my favorite books.

Fall Time Cozy Book Tag

Here’s a tag that was recent. I was tagged by Jesse at Books at Dawn (Thank You!) and I thought it best to hop to it now since fall is almost gone.

Crunching Leaves: The world is full of color – Book that has a red/orange/yellow cover.

Lord of Chaos

I choose Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan for this one. Only the yellow and red colors are showing here but my physical copy fits this question. It’s the sixth book in the Wheel of Time series and I plan to read it at the start of the New Year.

Pastry Book Tag

Thanksgiving is tomorrow so I thought it fitting to do this Pastry Book Tag now. I was tagged by Trisha Ann at the Bookgasm Blog back in October. Thanks Trisha! 🙂

Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.

Harry Potter is a given but I’ll also mention the Song of Ice and Fire series and the Saga comic books as well. They are both great series and deserve the many praises they receive from readers.

Villain Squad Tag

This is a pretty interesting tag that I’ve seen around booktube. I was tagged by Trisha Ann at The Bookgasm to do this back in October. Thanks Trisha!

Basically, I’ll create a villain squad based on my answers to the questions below. I’ll also adhere to Trisha’s added rule, which makes the sources for my choices limitless.

Think of your own villain identity and power!

I would have psychic powers like Prof. X from the X-men since I do this a lot —

Prof. X

I’m sure I’ll move something with my mind or read someone’s thoughts one of these days.
