I didn’t do a TBR in May because I had disappointed myself the previous month by not achieving all of the TBR challenge prompts I was supposed to do. I didn’t do that in May either. I technically read books that applied to all the prompts but I didn’t read all of the books I had planned for the prompts. However, I still kind of wanted to do this post because I like talking about the books that I’m going to read. So I will do so below the cut. However, I want to emphasize that I don’t plan on reading all of these, but I know I will get to a fair few of them.
I’m so excited about my summer vacation even though I’m not necessarily doing all that much this summer. I do, however, plan on getting a lot of reading done this summer though and try to keep myself entertained. I’m looking forward to all my summer reads. So what am I reading in July? You’ll find it below the cut.
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.
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!
Back to school season is upon us, and I’ve been back to work for a week now. What’s more relevant to back to school than a tag that has to do with backpacks? Though looking at the questions, I had to admit I’m not sure what they have to do with backpacks. Oh well, let’s just get into the questions.
