foklore book tag

I found another folklore book tag, this one created by Star is All Booked Up. I tried to diversify my answers - not sure I succeeded! the 1 a book you grew out of The Matched series by Ally Condie was, for me, Baby's First Dystopian Sci-Fi. I loved the world, the premise, everything about… Continue reading foklore book tag

Ghibli Heroines Tag

I pretended to like Ghibli movies for years and years to make friends and influence people. I feel secure enough now to admit that the only Ghibli movie I really like is Howl's Moving Castle. And yet I'm STILL doing this tag that I found on the incomparable Zezee With Books. There are rules, of course.… Continue reading Ghibli Heroines Tag

The Folk of the Air Book Tag #2

Psst...I've never read this series. And I don't plan to remedy that. Whoops. Xandra freshened up her Folk of the Air Book Tag to include references to The Queen of Nothing. I'm using Xandra's banners and what not. I may even tag people! Who knows?     Jude: A character who could kill you in your sleep.… Continue reading The Folk of the Air Book Tag #2

The F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Book Tag

I've watched maybe ten episodes of Friends in my entire life. (Emer's going to make me watch the series as homework. I just know it.) I did the How I Met Your Mother Thing instead, which was...a mistake. We all know by now that it doesn't take much for me to do a book tag. Emer did this tag on… Continue reading The F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

The Wasted Potential Book Tag

You know how much I love to rag on books. Kristin and Jenna did a Wasted Potential Book Tag that made my heart sing. I started thinking of books that I thought could have been better. Once I started, I couldn't stop. One. A book that tried but failed to tackle an issue I didn't… Continue reading The Wasted Potential Book Tag

Jane Austen Character Book Tag

One thing I love about the blogosphere: the amount of creativity and number of shared interests in the community mean I don't have to make my own book tags. Case in point, Madame Writer created a Jane Austen Character book tag. And just in time - playing multiple rounds of Marrying Mr. Darcy every weekend put me… Continue reading Jane Austen Character Book Tag

Everyone, do the tag! Come on, do it! It feels really nice! I will try to avoid spoilers. I'll try VERY hard. Oh, I… Continue reading Midsommar Book Tag [ORIGINAL]

2019 Democratic Debate Book Tag

Due to my personal political frustrations, I sometimes fantasize about setting the current political system on fire. Luckily, I won't have to; the Democratic party is doing that for me. With more than 20 candidates in a party that can't agree on its priorities, I don't have much hope for the 2020 election. How do… Continue reading 2019 Democratic Debate Book Tag
