I’m back again with another tag that I wasn’t tagged in! In my blogging calendar, today’s post was supposed to be a review of Ann Patchett’s much-acclaimed The Dutch House but… I’m only four chapters in. As a review-preview, it’s fantastic so far, but I’ve just been so unbelievably busy recently that my reading has really suffered. Hopefully I’ll have a review for you next week. Danni @ ForBooksSake posted this tag a while ago and it looked fun, so whilst I’m trying to push through this enforced reading slump, here’s a little look at my Goodreads! Consider yourself tagged if you want to join in.
“The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.” — GlobalAussie
Hi all! I am having an insanely busy month and have barely had time to read anything, I’m real sad about it. As a result, I haven’t posted any reviews this week which is quite unlike me. However, I’ve had this tag sitting in my drafts for a while and as we’re halfway through the Hogwarts House Battle, I thought now would be a great time to do the First Year Hogwarts tag!
I saw this on Isabelle’s blog, Book Wyrm Bites, quite a while back now. This tag was started by Stuart at Always Trust in Books. As usual (because I’m terrible) I won’t tag anyone (I never know who’s already been tagged, who likes to be tagged, who hates it – it fills me with dread) but go ahead and join in if you think it looks fun. Here goes!
I think this tag has become a staple of the summer book-blogging calendar! The tag was first created by booktubers ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books and has become an annual tag that pops up everywhere during June and July on book blogs. It was one of the first posts I ever did, probably, as I started blogging (on Tumblr) in June of last year. Here’s where you can find last year’s answers (now on this blog). I debated whether I was going to do one at all, especially as I really wanted to do a post looking at my goals and some statistics too (which you can find here!) but the two posts are so different, so I definitely had to do the tag too!
From sentient plants to globetrotting feminists, I plan my very own literary dinner party!
I’ve been seeing this tag around for a few days now, namely on The Antagonist Diaries and Lucy and A Cup Full of Tea, though this tag was originally started by Lily Anna Writes. I like to think I’ve been making good progress on my TBR so this will be a good way for me to see what I’ve still got to go!
Happy Easter! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend however you’re spending it. We’ve had amazing weather here in London, so far I’ve spent most of this four-day weekend in the sunshine but today I think I’m going to cosy up with a book and work on my OWLs! This tag was created by Rosie the Reader, but I first saw it on Paperbacks and Planners. It looks super fun and I haven’t posted much this week so I thought I’d join in. I won’t tag anyone but drop you Easter Book Tag posts in the comments below so I can check out your answers if you do take part.
I saw this over on books-and-floralteacups and seeing as I started this blog mid-year I thought it would be good to do a mid-year catch up!
