Feel. That. Love.
No one tagged me for this. I’m just here, Valentining around.
I found this tag on Kristin Kraves Books.
1. Link back to this and mention Taiwo @ Stuffed Shelves as the creator of this tag.
2. Link back to the person who tagged you and thank them!
3. Answer the questions (of course!)
4. You can use my graphic if you want but please mention me as the person who made it.
What book(s) have you been given as a gift that you loved?
I got DC Bombshells for my 26th birthday.
I was flipping through it yesterday for artistic inspiration, and wow.
I forgot how much I love the artwork and the characters.
My coworker and I just saw Birds of Prey, so I’m feeling extra generous toward DC comics.
There have been some great female-focused comics in the last decade and I’m all for it.
What book(s) would you like to give as a gift to someone else?
I’d love to give Deerskin and Blood Water Paint to all the womxn in my life.
Actually, I’d like to give these books to everyone I know.
Not only are they gorgeously written, they’re really effective at stimulating empathy for survivors.
I want every person alive to read these books or something spiritually similar.
If you could gift a random person any bookish item, what would it be?
I LOOOOVE getting stuff in the mail and I really enjoy subscription boxes.
I got the chance to purchase a Call Down the Hawk box from Owlcrate.
It arrived the night I saw The Rise of Skywalker. I came home, opened my box, and cried. It completely made up for my disappointment in that movie.
There are tons of subscription boxes out there – I would want to surprise someone with the perfect book box.
If you could gift a random person any non-bookish item, what would it be?
I bought the most amazing-smelling lotion for my mom for Christmas and I ALMOST KEPT IT FOR MYSELF.
I looked for it just now and it appears to be OUT OF STOCK??
Listen: if you ever have the chance to buy lavender vanilla body butter from AubreyESoaps, DO IT IMMEDIATELY.
Or I’ll buy it for you, per the prompt.
What do you say when a person gives you a gift you don’t like?
“It’s an avocado! Thanks…”
(I actually love avocados. I would not mind if you got me a lil ‘cado.)
Mention a book based around Valentine’s Day.
I just found this delightful tome titled The Valentine’s Day Murder.
Mention any two tips for blogging as a gift to other bloggers and to those who may want to start a blog.
- Blog about whatever you want. You’ll find your voice and your niche in time.
- When you feel ready (and have the time or budget), create a personalized logo for your blog. It’ll make your blog more memorable.
