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

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

Fall Activities Book Tag

I saw this tag on the Sassy Book Geek and the Orang-utan Librarian‘s blogs and decided to do it because…it’s fall, I like tags, and it’s 1:43 a.m. and I’m in the mood to torture myself by staying up when I’m sleepy.

The tag was created by Ashley at Dreaming Through Literature.

By the way, I’ve never done any of these activities. My Fall activities include stepping on every crunchable leaf I see and obsessively thinking, “I hope this is as cold as it’ll get for winter,” in a falsely optimistic voice.

Queen Book Tag

It’s Tuesday. Tuesdays suck but not as much as Mondays, so to cheer myself up, I’m doing another Queen-inspired book tag because who doesn’t like Queen. Just listening to a song like the one below is sure to get you pumped and immediately brighten your day.

I found this tag on Stripped Cover Lit, a booktube channel I subscribed to a couple weeks ago. I love their content, especially their Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings series where they read the books and have a critical discussion about them.

The tag was created by Josh at Literary Gladiators, a booktube channel I’m unfamiliar with but will check out soon as I’m done typing this up, in observance of the late Freddie Mercury’s 70th birthday, which was on September 5.

Bohemian Rhapsody Book Tag

Mondays aren’t always pleasant if one has to work (I do). To perk up my spirit, I thought it would be fun to kick off the work week with a book tag based on one of my favorite songs — “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.

When I first heard this, I played it over and over and over. I was so obsessed and I damn near blew out my ear drums cause I turned it up so loud. Actually, let’s kick off the tag by watching the music video.

I found this tag on Magic of Books and vowed to do it very, very soon. It was created by the Bookish Underdog.

Intergalactic Book Tag

I haven’t posted much all week so I thought I’d do a tag post. Tags are great for blogging lulls and procrastination. They are also fun; well, I find them to be fun. Anyways, I found this a while back on Rachel’s blog, Life of a Female Bibliophile. It’s one of those tags that was created to promote a book: in this case, Starflight by Melissa Landers, which is a young-adult science-fiction novel. I haven’t read it but I sure love the cover!

Space: Name a book that is out of this world – that takes place in a world different from our own.
