The Book Lover's Tag
Here's a short, fun tag that I pulled off Tumblr (because of course I did). The only rule is that there are no rules (my favorite kind of rule). I'm going to tag anyone reading this, because I realized I'm pretty bad at actually tagging people when I do book tags, so this is me easing my way into real tags. You're welcome.
Name a book you’re embarrassed to say you haven’t read yet.
That depends on who you ask. The roommate would say Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, whereas my best bookish friend would say A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. But me? I would say it's embarrassing that I haven't read 1984 by George Orwell. Just haven't gotten around to it.
What is the strangest thing you’ve ever used as a bookmark?
Oh gosh, I use anything and everything as a bookmark. Currently, I have a business card as my bookmark.
Look at your bookshelf. What’s the first book you see with a yellow spine?
I don't appear to have a yellow spine (tragedy). Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2) by RL LaFevers has a black spine with tiny yellow corners. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling and This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner have orange spines. Which is close. Ish.
If you could have one new book from a deceased author, who would it be?
Jane Austen. She could write anything and I would love it. I'm drooling just thinking about a lost manuscript being discovered. GIVE IT TO ME.
Name an author who deserves more readership.
So many authors. I believe that every author deserves some dedicated readers! But one in particular that I feel is underloved: Kristin Cashore. I love Graceling and Fire and just don't think enough people love them!
