The A-Z Book Tag

Hello you lovely readers! Today, I’ve got another tag for you – one that I’ve seen doing the rounds a lot lately. The wonderful Amy-Louise over at Tomes With Tea sparked the inspiration of this post, which is all themed on the subject of the alphabet! So settle down and have a read, you might be able to learn a little bit more about me!


The A-Z Book Tag

 

A – Author you’ve read the most books from?
Lemony Snicket! A Series of Unfortunate Events is 13 books long and I read and loved every single one. They’re brilliant mysteries with brilliantly written characters and I always will have a special place in my heart for them.

B – Best sequel ever?
CROOKED KINGDOM. HANDS DOWN. By far one of the most intense and exciting sequels I have ever read, and it resolves everything that Six Of Crows left open!

C – Currently reading?
Ready Player One. I put it aside to read A Gathering of Shadows and then got so into AGOS that I forgot…

D – Drink of choice while reading?
I don’t really need to have a drink while I’m reading – I’m not a fan of tea unless it’s chai! Usually all I need is somewhere cosy and an instrumental playlist.

E – E-Reader or Physical books?
Physical. I’ve never had an e-reader, and I’ve tried before but it never really seemed to stick with me. There’s something about being able to hold the book and squeeze it tight that appeals to me.

F – Fictional character you would have dated in High School?
As much as I want to say Draco Malfoy, he was a nasty piece of work in school and probably wouldn’t have batted an eyelid at me…so let’s say Dean Thomas? He is so wonderfully sweet and kind!

G – Glad you gave this book a chance
It actually has to be Six Of Crows. It was on my shelf for about 5 months before I gave in to the constant excitement about it, and I am so utterly glad I did. It’s now one of my all-time favourite books!

H – Hidden gem book
Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner. I never see ANYONE raving about how good this book is. It’s well-written, heartbreaking, and perfect if you love reading books and crying. Adam Silvera fans, this is one for you!

I – Important moment in your reading life
Discovering manga for the very first time. I remember choosing volume one of Fruits Basket out of the small manga display and buying it. I took it home and read it all that evening and was instantly hooked.

J – Just finished reading…
A Gathering Of Shadows. I don’t think I’ll be over it for quite a while…well, until I start reading A Conjuring of Light!

K – Kinds of books you won’t read
I don’t like wartime fiction, and really don’t have much interest in history books either.

L – Longest book you’ve read?
I think this has to be Order of the Phoenix, at 766 pages!

M – Major book hangover because of…
A Gathering Of Shadows. What am I meant to do now?! I’m going to be going around my bedroom trying to light candles with magic that I don’t have!

N – Number of bookcases you own?
Just the one! I currently don’t have space for a huge bookshelf, but that may all change soon so watch this space…

O – One book you’ve read multiple times?
Order of the Phoenix again. I can’t remember off the top of my head how many times I’ve reread this one, but think it reaches close to the ten times mark!

P – Preferred place to read?
In my bedroom, usually sat at my desk next to my speaker. I have a really cosy chair, so will snuggle up in my blanket on it and rest my feet on the end of my bed.

Q – Quote that inspires you / gives you the “feels” ?
“I will have you without armour, Kaz Brekker, or I will not have you at all.” – Inej, Six Of Crows
“Magic is all and none. It’s sight, and taste, and scent, and sound, and touch, and it’s also something else entirely.” Alucard Emery, A Gathering Of Shadows

R – Reading regret?
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe. I couldn’t stand this book, and was really disappointed that I bought into the hype. It just seemed so far fetched to me and the main character was unlikeable!

S – Series you started, but need to finish?
The Mortal Instruments! I got three books in and then just…stopped. I had no reason to stop, but it ended up happening! I’ll definitely read the rest of the series one day!

T – Three of your all-time favorite books.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – J.K. Rowling
Nimona – Noelle Stevenson
Noah Can’t Even – Simon James Green

U – Unapologetic fangirl for…
SIX. OF. CROWS. I will not apologise for screaming from the rooftops about this book. I will not apologise for shoving it at everyone. I will not apologise for recommending it to EVERYONE. It is excellent.

V – Very excited for this release more than any others
Children of Blood and Bone. I have been on such a huge fantasy kick this year and am remembering why I love the genre so much. I have heard nothing but high praise for this epic fantasy book and can’t wait to sink my teeth into it!

W – Worst habit?
Buying a book and then not reading it for about 3 months…

X- X Marks the Spot: the 27th book on your shelf?
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. (Pssssst this is also a brilliant book if you want nasty, cruel faeries and humans being just as bad)

Y – Your latest book purchase?
The last book I bought was a signed copy of Nevermoor for my best friend. The last book I bought for myself was Vicious by V.E. Schwab.

Z – Zzzz snatcher:
Pride and Prejudice. I’m sorry but it was just so dull!


I hope you enjoyed this little A B C of me and my favourite books! Give me a tag if you decide to do the tag yourself, I’d love to read your answers!

  1. I can relate to how much you fangirl over Six of Crows 😁 such an amazing duology!

    It took me about 2 months to finish Pride and Prejudice, I just couldn’t get into it but I did start liking it a bit better after re-reading in the Manga format!

      1. Yes, I found the manga on Netgalley. I believe the publishers are Udon Entertainment? There are many classics they have converted to Manga format. Quite fun to read! 😊

  2. I love this tag what’s been going around. It’s a fun way of finding out more bookish facts of others. I loved it that Fruits Basket was the first manga series you read too!

  3. I can’t wait to read the Six of Crows duology! I’m so glad you love it so much! Sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy The Loneliest Girl in the Universe. It’s on my TBR list, but I have no clue when I’ll get to it. I loved reading all of your answers!
