Birthstone Book Tag

It’s been a hectic week and my mind has been sluggish for most of it. I’ve tried to do some review or discussion posts, but working up the energy to do them after a busy day at work was almost impossible.

Since my birthday is almost here (woohoo!) and I’m in the mood to do a tag (oh yeah!), I’ve decided to do the Birthstone Book Tag. It was created by booktuber Jay G.

Btw, I just found this cool Pisces tattoo design. I think I’ll stamp all the posts I do in March with it.

Heroes of Olympus Book Tag

Continuing from the Greek Mythology Book Tag, here is the Heroes of Olympus Book Tag created by Jasmine at Flip That Page. The tag is based on Rick Riordan’s middle-grade fantasy series of the same name of which I’m a fan. It’s an entertaining story that follows the adventures of teenage demi-gods who are trying to save the world.

Greek Mythology Book Tag

I found this great book tag on My Tiny Obsessions. It was created by Jasmine at Flip That Page, who called it a bookish survey and included a section based on the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan, which I, of course, will do in a separate post since this would be quite long otherwise.

Gods of Olympus

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.
