Bookish This or That Tags (x2!)

Bookish This or That Tags (x2!)

Let's Discuss, Tags 44

I first saw these two tags over at Angel’s Guilty Pleasures and thought they looked like fun. So why not combine them into one This or That Tag? I actually did ANOTHER This or That tag a couple of years ago, so feel free to check that one out too! The creator of the first one is Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks. This or That? Reading on the couch or on the bed? Both, but if I have to choose, I prefer bed. I even lay down in the middle of the day and read sometimes. Male main character or female main character? I tend to read more books with female MCs, so I guess I prefer them? Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading? Sweet snacks always trump salty ones. Always. Trilogies or quartets? Trilogies. I mean, really, I think duologies are awesome. First-person POV or third-person POV? I… Read more »

Why I’m Weird Tag

Why I’m Weird Tag

Let's Discuss, Tags 52

This tag was created by Dellybird, and I was tagged by Renee @ Renee’s Bookcase. Thanks for tagging me! Basically, we’re just supposed to list ten things that make us weird. Not too tough, considering I have plenty of weird quirks (just ask my kids—they make fun of me for them all the time). Why I’m Weird I sing nonsensical, made-up songs constantly. They usually involve puppies (’cause puppies are just awesome). Often, they’re sung to the tune of random worship songs. I think this might be somewhat blasphemous. (“How great is my puppy? Sing with me, how great is my puppy? And all will see how great, how great is my puppy.”) I also have crazy catch-phrases that I say often. I wrote a post about this once. I try to keep them mostly contained to my family, but sometimes I fail. For years, my kids (and my oldest’s… Read more »

Briggs Book Tag

Briggs Book Tag

Let's Discuss, Tags 18

I saw this over at It Starts at Midnight about a month ago (and a couple other places as well) and thought it would be a fun tag to try. The tag originated at Jaded Reader. In case you’re not familiar with it, here’s some info on Myers Briggs  (and the test, if you want to try it out yourself). I’ve taken this test a few times in the past, and I always come out very borderline between INFP and ENFP. This time was no exception, though I think when I was younger I skewed more toward Extrovert and nowadays I lean toward Introvert, and I actually think that’s pretty accurate. Anyway, I’m going with INFP. (Click the image to see it at its source: PersonalityCentral.com.)   And now… let’s move on to the tag! INTROVERT: (I) You can be outgoing, but need to recharge with some calming solitude, Where is your… Read more »

The Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag

The Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag

Let's Discuss, Tags 42

I saw this tag first over at Read All the Things, but it’s been around for years and it’s making its way around the blogosphere! Best book you’ve read so far in 2018? Aru Shah and the End of Time is definitely my favorite MG I’ve read this year. This book has such gorgeous writing and the best MG voice I’ve ever read. It’s the kind of book that makes me wonderfully happy and weep in jealousy at the same time.  🙂 YA is harder, but I’m going with A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews. It’s really hard not to be biased here because it’s Cait, guys (and no matter how hard we try to check our biases at the door when we review, it can’t be done completely).  But I just loved this story. It broke my heart and featured Cait’s beautiful writing and it was just wonderful.   Best sequel you’ve… Read more »

Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Let's Discuss, Tags 22

I wasn’t planning on posting today (my Sunday Post actually went up yesterday for just that reason), but then I found this fun tag over at A Dance with Books and just had to jump in! It was originally created over at A Page of Jenniely as part of Blogmas. She asked us some tough book blogger questions that we need to answer to find out if we’re on the Naughty List or the Nice List this Christmas!   Received an ARC and Didn’t Review It Oh, wow. Not a good start. Yes, unfortunately I have a good number of ARCs I haven’t read yet. I still plan to read most of them, but keeping up sometimes feels impossible. Have Less than 60% Feedback Rating on Netgalley Ahhh. Much better. Nope, I’m happy to say my NetGalley score is sitting pretty at 87% (and I have a book that I’ve read off of… Read more »

Book Title Tag

Book Title Tag

Let's Discuss, Tags 24

I recently found this tag over at Metaphors and Moonlight. and I also saw it at It Starts at Midnight. It looks like this actually originated way back in 2014 on Rachel Reads. (Yep, I actually did a little research here, people! You should be proud.) I thought this was one of the best tags I’ve seen in a long time! Anyway, I’m finally getting back into the swing of things after vacationing, but my brain is still not up to the task of coming up with a real discussion right now, so this is the next best thing. For my list, I used only books that I’ve actually read… just because. (It helped narrow things down a little.) I linked the pictures to my reviews, except in the one case I haven’t written a review yet (Willow Sparks, which I linked to Goodreads). Hope you enjoy! Let’s face it, there… Read more »

Tagapalooza – To All the Tags I’ve Skipped Before

Tagapalooza – To All the Tags I’ve Skipped Before

Tags 17

I am the WORST about doing tags! I have been tagged so many times, and they always look so fun and I think, “I’m going to do this one!” And then I forget about it. I’m not trying to be a horrible tagee (yeah, that’s totally not a word), but I just realize that I need to put a little thought into a tag and then eventually let it slip off my radar. SO, this is my Tagapalooza – a combination of all the tags I have not yet responded to! (If I missed yours, I’m so sorry. Feel free to remind me and I’ll add you to this one or to my next Tagapalooza.)   The Taylor Swift Book Tag Tagged by Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight I am horrible when it comes to knowing anything about current pop music. We pretty much only listen to K-Love around here (which is Christian contemporary)… Read more »
