Don’t mind me. I’m just entertaining myself here. I haven’t done one of these posts in a long time, but they are fun and I am in need of fun today, so I’ll include in this post all the ones I missed, which is a lot (yeahie! Something fun to do), and do this weekend’s topic as well. I’ll start with the most recent and work backwards.

This week’s topic:

A book with your least favorite trope

Bookish Alphabet Tag

This tag sounds interesting. I was tagged by Ariana, the Quirky Book Nerd, back in November but I wanted to hold out until I finished cataloging my books before I did it, which is why it’s late. That sounds like a silly reason now, but it does make it easier to do this tag.

Basically, I have to select a book for each letter of the alphabet. Articles that start the title — “The,” “A,” “An” — do not count, so The Hunger Games would count for H. It’s not required that you have read the books, only that you own them.

Exploring My Bookshelves: Book Haul #16

Exploring My Bookshelves is a weekly meme created by Victoria at Addlepates and Book Nerds and co-hosted with Shannon at For the Love of Words. Visit either blog for the list of topics.

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts. First I got busy, then I couldn’t find a book that applies to the two prompts I missed:

A winter story

A Christmas story

I don’t think I own a book that I would classify as a winter or Christmas story. If I do, I either haven’t seen it or haven’t yet read it to know if it is.

This week’s topic:

A Christmas present (from any year)
