My Life In Books Tag

I saw Andrew @ On My Bookshelf do this tag and thought it was a fab idea. Please go and check out his answers and his blog, you won’t regret it. As I am still fairly new to book blogging I thought this would be a great tag to do for you all to get to know me a bit better.

Find a book for each of you initials

A – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (sorry it had to be done)

L – Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

I – Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

C – Carrie by Stephen King

E – Emma by Jane Austen

It turns out that my name is harder than I thought it would be, especially when trying to pick books I’ve read for it.

Count your age along your bookshelf

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson – I have actually started this book but couldn’t get into it, I am terrible for not finishing books if there are others I would prefer to read. It is definitely a book I need to go back to and try harder with because I’ve heard so many good things.

Pick a book set in your city/country

The Apothecary Rose by Candace Robb – I have never read this and had to Google an answer, is that cheating? I’m not sure. Although, after reading the synopsis I may had to add it to my TBR.

Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to

Angels and Demons by Dan Brown – I would love to visit Italy and Rome in particular. I know there can be mixed reviews on Dan Brown’s writing but this book definitely made me want to explore the Vatican City and Rome.

Pick a book that has your favourite colour on it

Her Name Was Rose by Claire Allan – this book is sat next to me on my bedside table and so my favourite colour was easy to spot. It is a teal so you know.

Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

Angel by L.A. Weatherly – this may not be the most academic novel but I re-read this so many times and loved it every time. It has been a long time since I last read this.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – although I didn’t like my teacher in my English Literature classes, I did love learning about this book and the symbolism within it.

Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson – this maybe isn’t the novel I have had the most difficulty with ever but I am struggling with it, I just haven’t been gripped.

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Mills – not technically a book but it was a struggle to get through when I had to read it for school. I understood the message behind it but it was a hard read.

Which book on your TBR pile will give you the most achievement when you finish it?

It by Stephen King – I know I bang on about this all the time but I really would like to read it. The size of it would make it a definite achievement.

  2. Dan Brown’s stories are hit or miss, but he definitely knows how to make a history nerd want to visit a country haha. Great answers!
