My life in Books (It’s My Birthday!)

Hello bookworms!

It’s my birthdaaaay! Yayy!

And because I’m travelling right now and going to watch Star Wars VIII and eat lots of cake while contemplating my mortality, I decided it would be fun to do this tag! Because I’m a strong, independent woman I tagged myself (also it’s my birthday), and thought it would be fun doing a tag that is both more personal and bookish (like me!! The Birthday Girl!!)

1. Find a book for each of your initials

Nevernight, by Jay Kristoff

A Court of Mist and Fury, by Sarah J. Maas

To The Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf

Adulthood is a Myth, Sarah’s Scribbles

Leia, Princess of Alderaan

Inside Out And Back Again, Thanhha Lai

Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

 

Guess who only realized “Initials” and “Name” aren’t the same word only after answering this. Oh, well!

2. Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?

The Poisoned Crown, by Maurice Druon! I’m yet to read this series, but it looks so gooood… plus both my boyfriend and mom recommend it very highly!

3. Pick a book set in your city/country

Epitaph of a Small Winner, or as I know it, The Posthumous Memoirs of Brás Cubas is a witty, short book (200 pages) about the life of Brás Cubas, except it’s told by him… after he dies. He’s got a dry humor and is very cynical and I enjoyed this book very much!

4. Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to

Egypt! Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie 🙂

5. Pick a book that’s your favorite color

 

…blue!

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

Artemis Fowl! I first read this book when I was 10 and my friend and I were so hyped about it that I sneakily bought her a copy for her birthday. I have re-read this a lot of times! It was fun to get the rest of the series coming as I got older and so did Artemis.

7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

Cutting for Stone. I had a complicated relationship with this book and ended up giving it 2 stars. It digressed a lot into the historical facts and into the lives of characters I cared little for. Also I disliked the main character and found the book to be quite problematic in the end.

8. Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

A Little Life! It’s been on my TBR for a really long time now, and I always end up picking something else to read because it’s supposed to be very sad and dense, and it’s so thick… but one day!!

  1. Happy birthday!!!

    I can’t remember if I’ve brought this up with you before 😛 but as one Artemis Fowl fan to another, have you heard the film is currently slated for release April 2019? The director is famously good at being really loyal to source material as well – I’m stoked.

  6. Belated Happy BD! Here are my initials in books:
    R Resurrection of Joan Ashby by Cherise Walas ,a wonderful novel about an author’s life which included some of the things “she” had written.
    E Emerald City by Jennifer Eagan, a dazzling book of short stories by the author of Manhattan Beach.
    L Last Apprentice, the story of a good wizard’s apprentice, part of a series.
    The first two I have read since the beginning of the year, and the last I found run over in the street (probably thrown out of the junior high bus) and read one last time before it was discarded).
