Hello, book fans! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve done a tag and I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve been on top of doing stuff for the blog. I feel a little bit bad about neglecting my blog-sibilities, but I have to admit that I have just been really busy lately and haven’t had a lot of time to spend on blogging. (Sometimes when I am procrastinating on work, I am unable to spend any time on anything else that might be productive. It’s weird). One of my resolutions this year is to be better at the blog, so I wanted to write this post up for you.
When I was little, I would play make believe, and every so often I would pretend to be royalty. I was always fascinated by the concept. However, I didn’t just pretend to be a princess. I also remember a time when my cousin, my little brother, and I pretended to be former Prime Ministers of Canada at the behest of my cousin who has always been interested in politics. In today’s Tag Tuesday, we are going to pretend that I am the ruler of books. You’ll find my answers below the cut.
I love how people draw inspiration for these bookish tags from the most everyday of things. Personally there are some things I would change on this tag, but it’s not mine so I’m rolling with the punches here. Check out my answers below the cut.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my favourite shows. ￼I know it’s technically a show for children but I really appreciated the way it dealt with serious issues. That’s why I really like the idea behind this tag. You can see my answers to the element themed questions below the cut.
Before I got really into bookstagram and tags, I never knew there was such a thing as an A to Z challenge. I think it’s actually a pretty cool thing to do. I tried to do one last year, but I wasn’t super successful so I thought I would try again this year.
This isn’t your typical tag, so I suppose I’m kind of fudging this in order to post it. However, I think you will all forgive me because it’s my birthday! That’s right. Today I turn 28 years old and I thought I would tag myself to do a similar challenge to what I did last year when I turned 27. If you missed it, I came up with a list of 27 books I wanted to read in my 27th year, which can be found here. I did okay in the end, but I like to challenge myself so we’re going to do it again and we’re going to try and do even better!
So without further ado, here are 28 books that I’m hoping to get to in my 28th year.
Everyone’s got a TBR pile, some are just bigger than others.
One of the things I know about people is that they tend to be pretty opinionated. I am definitely that realm sometimes, but I have to admit that I have some serious moments of indecisiveness. Because of my indecisiveness and the fact that I read Hamlet recently with my class, I thought it might be fun to make myself do a tag where I have to make some decisions.
Disney was such a formative thing for me as a kid. I used to watch the movies all the time, and my mom tells me that my favourite when I was really little was 101 Dalmatians. I’d ask her over and over to watch ‘Dogs’. However, I was never super into the villains. When I got older, I got a bit more of an understanding of the character and when I watch the movies now, I understand the depth of their characterization. I’m still not much of a villain lover today, but they’re really interesting.
Three has never been my favourite number. However, it’s a good number for a tag full of bookish things I like and love. Below the cut you will find some of my top three bookish things!
