I came across one of the most interesting tags I have seen over on Jess @ JBelkBooks‘ blog. I’m not one for tags unless I have actually been tagged in things, which is rare. But this was too good to pass up. And when Jess suggested that I do it after I flailed a bit about it, well, who was I to say no?
What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
Hmm. A few years ago, I actually picked up the entire Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray for 14 NZD. Which was – whoa. I mean, ENTIRE TRILOGY. IN GOOD CONDITION. FOR FOURTEEN DOLLARS. It was, quite literally, a steal. I also once found this book I had never heard of – The Shakespeare Secret by J L Carrell – for like, 5 SGD? And it was a really good book, so WOW. I lucked out.
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
At the moment, I would have to say J.K. Rowling? Because while Harry Potter will always have a special place in my heart, I have realised her representation is quite lacking. I just – wish she would Stop.
What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
The Chronicles Of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. The Chalet School Series by Elinor M. Brent-Dyer, or at least the books in the series I have. Both just make me feel like a little kid again.
What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
What book haven’t I neglected this year? But specifically, because I was supposed to read it before the baby was born and she’s almost three months and I still haven’t read it – The Happiest Baby On The Block by Harvey Karp.
What book do you talk about in order to sound like an intelligent reader?
SHAKESPEARE. Literally anything Shakespeare. And sometimes Austen, even though I’ve actually only read Pride & Prejudice completely. I love them both.
What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?
Snark, but like, not to the point of rudeness. Wit, but a good heart. Not afraid to show their emotions. Loyal to the people they love.
What book would you like to receive as a gift?
Literally anything you think I would enjoy? Or you could see my TBR. Lol. (No, but I used to tell my family to just give me cash instead of presents on my birthday so I could buy the books I wanted instead of them giving me something I didn’t like. I had no shame.)
And that’s the tag! It was as fun as I thought it would be, so I’m glad I did it. I’m going to tag a couple of people, but feel free to pass on it if it doesn’t interest you, or if you’ve done it before!
Even if you’re not tagged and you decide to do this, feel free to link me!
