The Easter Book Tag

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 your Easter Book Tag posts in the comments below so I can check out your answers if you do take part.

Rabbits

a book you wish would multiply

Borne by Jeff Vandermeer

I promise I’ll stop talking about this book soon (maybe) but I wish Borne had been part of a larger series! I loved the world and the characters and I know there are so many more potential stories from this world.

Egg

a book that surprised you

Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

I picked this up for a reading challenge prompt, ‘a book based on a real person’. I was a little sceptical because of the hype, and even more sceptical when I opened it up to find that it’s almost in the form of a play but not quite? I ended up loving it though and totally understood the praise!

Hunt

a book that was hard to get your hands on

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling

I struggled to think of one for this, but then I remembered that I’m still hunting for a specific copy of this book! I’m not looking for a first edition or anything like that, I just want a hardback of The Goblet of Fire with this cover to match the rest of my set.

Lambs

a children’s book you still enjoy

Mio, My Son by Astrid Lindgren

Harry Potter is an obvious one, and I’ve talked about my love for His Dark Materials before, but I also really love Astrid Lindgren’s books. I read several for a class on her work and didn’t realise how much I would enjoy them! I think Mio, My Son is my favourite though.

Spring

a book’s cover that makes you think ‘Spring’

The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan

I’m always struck by this book’s cover, I think it’s so pretty and definitely makes me think of Spring with all those flowers. I’ve not read it, and I don’t think I will, but the cover always makes me consider adding it to my TBR.

Baskets

a book that’s in your Amazon wishlist

The Sensational Past: How the Enlightenment Changed the Way We Use Our Senses by Carolyn Purnell

This book looks so interesting! I’ve had it on my list for a while now, I just haven’t bought it because I’m trying to work through the books I own before buying more. I also think the cover is really pretty.

Candy

a book that’s sweet

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

My Goodreads review of this literally starts with the line “This was the sweetest thing in the world!!!!” I read it for last year’s POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, for the prompt ‘a children’s classic you’ve never read’ and absolutely adored it.
