The folklore Book Tag!

Another Sunday, another book tag.

And this week’s tag is very exciting. This (surprise) album is the reason that I didn’t put up a post on Friday. I couldn’t stop listening to it, or watching reactions, and basically just obsessing over it. Like a large portion of book twitter, I had a midnight listening party and loved every second.  Continue reading

Book Tag | The Wanderlust Book Tag

Another Sunday, another book tag

Since we’re all still stuck inside, what better time to virtually (or at least mentally) travel with books! The settings in some books can elevate the whole story and become a character itself. They can be wonderful forms of escapism and reflect all types of places to convey a spectrum of emotions and I just love it! I found this tag over at @NoReadsTooGreat and figures what better time.

First Lines Fridays #69

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

So here are 10 books I’m thankful for…. Continue reading
