And . . . we’re back with another short and fun tag I found on KristinKravesBooks! This one is all about using books to describe parts of our lives. The questions look so fun!
As always, I’d love to hear your answers . . . so let’s get started!
Find a book for each of your initials
(excluding ‘the’ if you need to)
We’ll stick with my pen name initials for this one. . . so E, G, and B.
Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?
Twenty books into my bookshelf is Within These Lines by Stephanie Morrill – a great read!
Pick a book set in your city/country
As far as I’m aware, there aren’t any books set in my city, but Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder is the closest one I can think of offhand. Laura Ingalls was born about three and a half hours from where I live.
Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to
I’m not particularly fond of The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley (I don’t actually believe I’ve finished the entire book yet), but I would love to go to Scotland! It’s so intriguing and beautiful in its own mystical way.
Pick a book that’s your favorite color
Blue and yellow are my favorite colors, so I love the color combo on the cover of All the Light We Cannot See. And even besides the colors, it’s a stunning cover in my opinion.
Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
My mom used to read books to me and my siblings when we were kids, and A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket was one of my favorites that she read to us. If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it! The books have great mystery and keep you very entertained with the ridiculous and clever humor sprinkled through each page.
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini was a rough one. I didn’t know what I was getting into when I picked it up, and there were a lot of sections that were hard to read, due to the disturbing content. From a story perspective, it was very well-written and engaging, but it isn’t light-hearted.
Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?
I’ve wanted to read The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas for years, and have yet to finish it. I started it once when I was starting high school and was too intimidated by its size. But the triumph I’ll feel when I finally trek through the entire thing will be so worth it!
If you think these questions look like fun, I officially tag you! The best parts of these tags are getting to read others’ answers, so please hop in if you’d like – either on your own blog, or in the comments below!
