It’s that time of year again! I always start to see the Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag floating around early June, which always seems a little premature to me – there’s a whole month of the first half of the year left?! What if you read a masterpiece mid-June?! But we’re firmly in the second half of the year now so I’m ready to add mine to the pile.
I decided to finally do the Reread, Rewrite, Burn book tag that I’ve seen Kristen Kraves Books do a few times now. The rules are pretty simple: pick three books and, in the style of ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid’ (or any other less-PG13 versions you’ve come across) you pick which of the three books you would reread, rewrite, or just throw in a fire.
Sarah nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award – thanks Sarah! I think Sarah and I have somewhat similar taste in books so I always love reading her reviews. Her Non-Fiction November posts have featured some great books too, so if you’re on the look out for some recommendations, check them out!
I’m actually scheduling this post very far in advance as my blogging calendar is currently full of end-of-month posts and catch up reviews, etc. At the time of writing, it’s a weekend but I’m sick as hell and feeling very sorry for myself. I can barely face leaving my room, let alone my house, but the thought of lying in bed all day is miserable. So, I thought I’d climb out of my pile of blankets and have a rummage around my bookshelves! I found this tag on Nicki’s blog a while back. You don’t need to write about the books, but as I have nothing better to do than lie in my sick bed I thought I’d talk about them a little bit. I’ve linked back to any reviews of books I’ve already read. If you’d like to join in, consider yourself tagged!
Ooh, I love a good bookish-tag! I saw this on Danni’s blog @ ForBooksSake, but the tag originates on Youtube. The original video, by Chami, doesn’t exist anymore but there’s plenty of people who have done the tag in video form! Consider yourself tagged if you think it looks fun.
The lovely Heran @ Be Frisky nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award – thanks Heran! I love reading Heran’s posts and there’s always so much variety, not just bookish content, so definitely check them out if you’re not already following!
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 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!
