The (Insert Name Here) Tag?


Happy Friday, everyone!

Last month I was tagged by Never Seen A Nevergreen to do a tag that I’m not sure what the exact name is (hence the title of this post haha) – seems like a bookish tag. But basically if you’ve been tagged you answer the questions left by who tagged you and then you leave questions (I don’t know if there’s an exact number) for people you tagged.

Never Seen A Nevergreen’s questions:

What thing or object on a cover instantly makes you reach for that book?
I don’t know about instant interest but the color scheme can be very eye-catching to me.

What is the last 1 or 2 star book you read and what one thing would have instantly made it a better book?
I never thought this would happen but I just finished Truthwitch by Susan Dennard and I think I’m going to have to give it 2 stars which makes me incredibly sad. I’ll be posting my full review of it tomorrow. One thing that could have made it instantly better? A glossary.

What book older then 10 years do you really really want to read?
I’m not sure. I think all the books on my TBR list are from within the past decade. But I think I’d be interested in reading Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow and re-reading The Marrow of Tradition by Charles Chesnutt.

What colour is most prevalent on your bookshelf? 
It’s hard to tell. I have so many different shades of color.

What thing instantly makes any book better?

Share your favourite book quote!
“One riot. One Ranger.” from the Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan.

Least favourite and most favourite book or short story you read in school
Least favorite? A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf. Most favorite? Hamlet by William Shakespeare.

I tag………anyone who would like to do this. Or if you don’t but still want to answer the questions listed below you can post your responses in the comments.

My questions:

  1. Do you prefer fiction or nonfiction?
  2. Name a book you were sure you weren’t going to like but ended up loving.
  3. Which three books could you read over and over again and still enjoy?
  4. How many books (or ebooks) are on your bookshelf?
  5. What does your dream library space look like?
  6. If you could have any book related job (real or made up) what would it be?
  7. Favorite fantasy world from a book series?

I hope everyone has a great Friday and fantastic weekend! Happy Reading! Happy Writing!

  1. Hooray for Hamlet!!
    x The Captain


  2. I’ve honestly heard many people say that about Truthwitch, so I’m not surprised. It seems that people either love or dislike that book and it’s go me curious for that reason (I swear I don’t like reading books that I don’t like, but I have read a lot of books the past two years that I knew I wouldn’t like or that were very mixed opinion). Great questions as well!


    • It’s sad because there’s so much potential there! But it quickly became a detached but focused reading experience. However, I do love the idea of Threadbrothers and Threadsisters.
