I’ve never participated in a book tag on my blog so today marks an important first! I was tagged by the lovely Helen (watchingsparksreviews.wordpress.com) first and then by Moon on Twitter, (moonkestrelblog.wordpress.com) so I’ve been extremely fortunate! That means I get DOUBLE QUESTIONS!

Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White – My dad gave me his old copy. I also loved Michael Morpurgo’s Kensuke’s Kingdom and the A Series of Unfortunate Events books by Lemony Snicket.
Tonks, but maybe only when she gets called ‘nymphadora’ – I have a wee temper, plus: Hufflepuff, plus clumsiness. Tonks. Also, maybe, Neville. Maybe a sprinkle of Ron in there too? I don’t know, this is a hard question! (but I love it!)
Gimli, son of Glóin , – My whole family is taller than I am and I’m bitter about it. and again, ‘temper, temper.’
Jo, Little Women. Though the girls have such defined personalities that I might be a blend. Jo is definitely the predominant personality in me though.
I think Eleanor Tomlinson would make a great Elain (A Court of Thorns and Roses) – I also love Aidan Turner so he could be my Rhysand. But mostly because I just love him and I’ve not seen the right fancast for this one yet. Tom Hardy would act the part fabulously but he’s just a bit too cute, I’m not sure he can be scary enough.
I don’t know if I’d consider Little Women ‘underhyped’ but I feel like more people should read it. It’s so wholesome and lovely. I’d like to hear more people’s opinions of Eon by Alison Goodman. My online friend Rachel is a big advocate of the series and I thoroughly enjoyed the first book.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
A 3 year reading and writing slump whilst at uni, studying English.
1 Year (Nov 4th 2016)
7 Billion, 813 million, 710 thousand, 541. (approx 😉 )
Nope, and nope. I am not a talented multi-tasker.
I mean Harry Potter, obviously. But also Ink and Bone – though I might’ve tweaked it.
Vicious – V.E. Schwab, Warcross – Marie Lu, Good Wives – Louisa May Alcott
Mor (ACOTAR) or Alice (Twilight)
Every author of every book I’ve ever loved.
Most often I just read one but I find reading two at once helps me get through slumps
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden if you haven’t already! It is just a wonderful and compelling story. Shame he named his source really – made a real mess of things.
Yes, I have this delusional notion that good books have good marketing teams. I’m, of course, wrong to think that – the best writers often go undiscovered for yonks. Sad really. But, also, they look pretty on my bookshelf so…
Velaris probably, it sounds like a wonderful paradise.
Baddies turned goodies. Love triangles done well.
“it was all a dream” and “He let out a breath he didn’t know he was holding” like, lets all assume that at this point we know our own lungs.
Hitting the ‘post’ button and feeling this immense pride that I’ve done something other than think about food and/or napping.
Ordinary people. Life is hard – if you’ve done okay today that’s pretty inspiring in my book. Also, astronauts.
