Mini Book Tag Week: Bookish Boxes & Buzzwords Tag

Here’s a pretty cool tag that was created by booktuber LizziefayeLovesBooks. It’s about books that match all your checkboxes on what you like to read or has buzzwords that appeal to you. I consider myself tagged by Rachel at Life of a Female Bibliophile.

Your go-to genre or favorite type of book

Golden Fool by Robin Hobb

My go-to genre is fantasy, so I chose my favorite Robin Hobb book from this genre. The Golden Fool is the second novel in the Tawney Man trilogy, which finds Fitz and the Fool on another adventure. I recently reread it on audio and love it still.

Mini Book Tag Week: Opposite Book Tag

My mini book tag week continues with the Opposite Book Tag, which I found on the Book Forager just a few days ago. I decided to do it because it pushed me to take a look at the digital version of my collection to answer some of the questions. I love playing around with it, lol.

First book in your collection | Last book you bought

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology by Cory O’Brien, illus. by Sarah E. Melville

I don’t remember the first one in my collection, so I went with my copy of The Great Gatsby, which I actually took from my dad. It’s pretty old, so it’s been in my family’s collection (and now mine) for a while.

Mini Book Tag Week: End of Summer Recap Book Tag – 2020

I’m in a book tag mood, so I declare a BOOK TAG WEEK!! But since we’re already halfway through the week, this will be a mini book tag week.

I did this tag last year after seeing it over on Kristin Kraves and have decided to do it again after seeing a recent post Kristin did, so shout out her! 😀

The tag was created by Faith at You Are What You Read and, like Faith, I’ll only consider for this the books I read in June to August.

Which book can you not stop thinking about?

Witch Hat Atelier, Vol. 1 by Kamome Shirahama (illus.), transl. by Stephen Kohler

This a fantasy manga about a girl who adores magic and gets the opportunity to become a witch but, unfortunately, at a dire cost. I enjoyed the story and admired the illustrations and am looking forward to continuing with it.

Book Buying Habits Tag

It’s Friday. I feel like doing a book tag, so here’s the Book Buying Habits Tag created by booktuber Megan Olivier.

Where do you buy your books?

Wherever I see the book or find a cover/edition of it I like. I often shop at Barnes & Noble, but there are some indie bookstores I also like to shop at. If I want a particular edition or cover, I check Book Depository. I used to shop a lot at Book Outlet because of the huge discounts, but I don’t often do so anymore since I get discounts from working at a bookstore. And recently, I discovered Discworld Emporium, which sells books and other items related to Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. I like their packaging, so I might get more stuff from them. 😊

…I miss shopping at Borders, though.

How I Read Books Tag

It’s FRIDAY!!! So I’m doing a book tag. 😀

I was tagged by the wonderful Alex at Whimsy Pages to do this tag. (Thanks Alex!!) Unfortunately, I do not know who created it, but if you do, please let me know.

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Nope, I do not. I read every and anywhere, but I mostly read in bed during the day. I tried reading in bed at night, but I always fall asleep. I do love reading in the living room on the sofa because that area gets A LOT of natural light, but my family is noisy sometimes and my dad hogs the TV and loves to play it LOUD, so in my room on my bed is where I read.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?

I can stop anywhere and pick up at whatever point I stopped. If it’s a story that I’m REALLY hooked on, then it’s harder to stop because I want to know what happens next immediately. In that case, I don’t stop and end up doing everything one-handed with half my attention on it.
