An original Book tag by Elaine Howlin, I found this tag on library looter‘s blog. Since I have limited time on my hands currently, I’ve been doing more book tags. This particular tag is quick, easy, and fun! I always put links for the authors and books so feel free to click on the provided links if any seem interesting.
Let’s get started.
Find a book for each of your initials
A- As You Are by Sarah M. Eden
E- Even This: Getting to the Place Where You Can Trust God with Anything by Emily Belle Freeman
M- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
Count your age along your bookshelf: What book do you land on?
Pseudonymous Bosch‘s The Name of This Book Is Secret (2007)
SInce all my books are packed away, I went through a library catalog of my books on my phone! Since I am 30 years old, I stopped on this little trinket. It’s a fun book which I think fans of Trenton Lee Stewart‘s The Mysterious Benedict Society, or Lemony Snicket‘s A Series of Unfortunate Events would enjoy.
A book set in your city/country?
Rick Riordan‘s The Titan’s Curse (2007)
Funny story! Percy and his friends go to Cloudcroft, New Mexico. People probably would recognize it as the sad village in the mountains. Percy buys a plastic rat from someone because he feels sorry for them. So I lived there at the time I read this book! I still think its hilarious.
A book that represents a destination that you’d love to travel to?
Jennifer Deibel‘s A Dance in Donegal (2021)
I would love to travel to Ireland like Moira Doherty in this book! I have an extensive Irish ancestry. It is on my bucket list of places I want to see in my lifetime.
A book that’s your favourite colour?
Catherynne M. Valente‘s In the Cities of Coin and Spice (2007)
I love, love, love, love orange! This is one of the first books to pop in my mind with this color.
Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
Kate DiCamillo‘s The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane (2006)
I’ve read this book multiple times throughout my life, and each reading is special to me. No matter how many times I experience this story it remains memorable and heartwarming.
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
Fyodor Dostoyevsky‘s Crime and Punishment (1866) (In Russian)
I’ve picked my way through several Russian novels but Crime and Punishment is by far the hardest I’ve attempted. I have yet to finish this book completely.
Which book on your TBR will give you the most satisfaction to finish?
Geoffrey Chaucer‘s The Canterbury Tales (1400)
Ever since my European tour in 2013, I’ve wanted to read this book. I finished it once upon a time as a teenager and hated it. However, I learned the history behind this classic collection and realized I had read it with the wrong mindset. I would love to dive back into this novel to understand the archetypes Chaucer tried to depict.
Thank you for reading! Spread this tag around! See you tomorrow.
