I found this book tag from Marc Nash, and A Little But A Lot while reading The Corner of Laura‘s post. Since I’ve had the most fun filling out lists this past month, I thought I would give this a go! (I would love if anyone tags me for any future book tags.)
The Last Book I Gave Up On
Ashley Poston‘s Bookish and the Beast (2020)
The writing style, characters, and overall set up just rubbed me the wrong way. I fought too hard to get invested and gave up after reading 50 pages.
The Last Book I Reread
Heidi Kimball‘s Where the Stars Meet the Sea (2020)
Though it isn’t the most gloriously written romance, I enjoy going back and reading this book. It has a sweet love story and is a Regency romance so I still find it enjoyable.
The Last Book I Bought
Barnes and Noble Edition of Agatha Christie‘s Murder on the Orient Express and Other Hercule Poirot Mysteries
I’m an avid Christie fan and I wanted to read her book Curtain included with this hardcover collectable.
The Last Book I Said I Read, But Didn’t
Catherynne M. Valente‘s The Boy Who Lost Fairyland (2015)
Though I have re-read the first three books in the Fairyland series, I still haven’t read this one. I will get to it, but for now I kind of pretend I’ve read it to avoid unnecessary questions.
The Last Book I Wrote In The Margins Of
The Book of Mormon Translated by Joseph Smith Jr.
Since I read a few pages of this book daily, I write in the margins all the time. Once I finish reading it, I get another copy and start all over again. I do write and mark all my favorite books. It’s a habit I developed in college.
The Last Book I Had Signed
Katherine Arden‘s books Small Spaces (2018) and the first two books of her Winternight Trilogy
The only book signing I’ve ever gone to was in Provo, UT for Katherine Arden. I’m really happy I met her and had her sign my books.
The Last Book I Lost
Honestly, I cannot recall any recent books I’ve lost or had stolen. Technically A Monster Calls would work but I found it again fairly recently.
The Last Book I Had To Replace
Patrick Ness‘s A Monster Calls (2011)
Fun story, I actual lent my copy of this book to a sibling and it disappeared for years. So, I bought a new one and low and behold a few months ago it popped up again! That’s why it doesn’t count for the previous question really.
The Last Book I Argued Over
Funny thing, I don’t argue over books. I’m pretty respectful of other people’s opinions and feelings about books, movies, and television. To each his own. I do argue about manga quite a bit but that doesn’t apply right now.
The Last Book I Preordered
Clive Barker‘s Absolute Midnight (2011)
I don’t pre-order books because too many times I pre-ordered a book and hated, and regretted wasting money. So sad. However! The one time I can think of where I preordered and loved a book was Absolute Midnight. I waited six years for it and it didn’t disappoint!
Thank you for reading! See you tomorrow!
