Tag: Books I’ll (Probably) Never Read (Take 2)

I cannot believe it’s been six months since Jamsu tagged me to do the Books I’ll Probably Never Read tag! If you want to see my answers from the first time around, they’re here!


a really hyped book you’re not interested in reading

I just have… like less than zero interest in Chain of Gold.

a series you won’t start/won’t be finishing

I really wanted to love the Bromance Book Club series, but the first book brought back way too many bad memories for me. I’m too nervous to read the rest of the series.

a classic you’re not interested in

I’m still not interested in classics. Crime and Punishment is another that I know I’ll never read.

a genre you never read

I asked my fiance for a genre I never read and he said “spacerotica,” and he’s definitely not wrong.

a book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read

That’s a good question! I go through my shelves pretty regularly to get rid of books I don’t think I’ll read. I can’t think of any that I own right now and don’t plan to read.


I’m not tagging anyone in particular in this one, but if you want to steal it, please feel free! And please make sure to link back to this post so I can see your answers! What are some books you’re not interested in reading? Let’s talk in the comments!

Tag: A Book for All Occasions

Thanks to Leslie for tagging me to do the a book for all occasions tag, way back in April! ❤ One day I will finally get caught up on my tags! 🙂

Also, fun fact! This is my 2000th post on this blog! I cannot believe I’ve had so many things to say over the years!


Rules:

  • Answer the questions below
  • Tag at least five people to continue the tag
  • Give credit where credit is due – it will make Hannah smile.

Name a book that makes you cry.

Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren

It’s hard to believe that I read this two and a half years ago already, but Love and Other Words made me cry so much.


Name a book that makes you smile.

Heartstopper by Alice Oseman

I think I smiled the whole way through Heartstopper.


Name a book that makes you feel passionate.

Rules for Being a Girl by Candace Bushnell & Katie Cotugno

Rules for Being a Girl made me so angry. I feel like it called out the unfair expectations placed on teenage girls really well.


Name a book that makes you feel cosy.

Book Love by Debbie Tung

Book Love just makes me want to curl up in my bed and read.


Name a book that transports you to a magical place.

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Definitely Nimona! Nimona’s powers are so cool.


Name a book that scared you.

172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad

I hardly ever read anything spooky, but 172 Hours on the Moon got me.


Name a book that makes you feel jealous.

More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn

It was my dream to be a music journalist when I was younger, so I am definitely jealous of Vada in More Than Maybe!


Name a book with an inspiring female character.

The Story That Cannot Be Told by J. Kasper Kramer

Ileana does not give up in The Story That Cannot Be Told!


Name a book with an inspiring male character.

Saga, Vol. 1 (Saga Collected Editions, #1)

I think Nick from The Extraordinaries is really inspiring. He just keeps trying and trying and trying for his goal, regardless of any setbacks.


What’s a book that made you feel passionate? What about a book that made you feel cozy? Let’s talk in the comments!

Tag: Audiobook Tag

I have a million tags I’ve actually been tagged in that I have yet to do, but I figured I’d do this really fun audiobook tag that I found on Sahi‘s blog instead! Audiobooks are most of my reading these days and I’m excited to talk about them!


HAVE YOU ALWAYS LISTENED TO AUDIOBOOKS OR WHEN DID YOU BEGIN?

I was a Spanish major when I was in college, and I had to read some really difficult books. I started listening to audiobooks so I could hear the books while I was walking to class in addition to sitting down and actually reading them. I also listened to a couple fiction audiobooks, and then got kind of sick of them and stopped. Over the year, I listened to the occasional audiobook while cleaning, but I didn’t get really into them until I started my current job, where I sat in a cubicle with a lot of activity around me all day. Now I’ve been at home for about five months, but I’m still listening to them while I work. (And sometimes while I cook, clean, and sew.)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUDIOBOOK?

I’d have to go with Sadie!

WHAT IS MY LEAST FAVOURITE THING ABOUT AUDIOBOOKS?

A bad narrator can really take a good book and make it terrible. There have been a few audiobooks that I’ve had to put down because I just couldn’t handle the narrator.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE DIFFERENCE IN EXPERIENCE BETWEEN PHYSICALLY READING A BOOK AND LISTENING TO IT?

There isn’t really much of a difference to me, other than I can do other things while I listen to an audiobook and it’s pretty hard to multitask while physically reading.

HOW AND WHEN DO YOU LISTEN?

I mostly listen while I’m working and I mostly use Libby, although now that Netgalley has ALCs, I also use their Shelf app. (Honestly, it could use some work. It’s super frustrating.)

WHAT STYLE/GENRE DO YOU PREFER?

Almost anything except erotica. That’s one genre that I’d much prefer to physically read.

WHAT ARE SOME AUDIOBOOK/NARRATOR RECOMMENDATIONS?

In addition to Sadie, I’d recommend Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow, Open Book by Jessica Simpson, and The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo. My favorite narrators are probably January LaVoy and Rebecca Soler.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend!

If you could costume play (cosplay) as any character, which one would you pick, and why?

I really just want all the animals. Every single one of them.

If you could get paid a minimum of $60,000 per year, what job would you happily do or perform?

I like zinnias a lot.

Tag: Books As First Dates

I was tagged by Amber to do the books as first dates book tag! This is such a fun idea for a tag!


THE CREATOR & THE RULES

The creators of this tag is Alice @ Love for Words! The rules are …
↠ Link back to the original tag.
↠ Thank and link back to the person who tagged you.
↠ Tag 5+ bloggers.
↠ Have fun!


First and Last: A book/series you’ve read and enjoyed, but can’t bring yourself to read again

Having not enjoyed the last couple books I read by Krista & Becca Ritchie, I’m terrified that I wouldn’t like the Addicted series anymore if I reread it.

With a friend of my friend: A book/series someone recommended to you that turned out to be different from what you had expected.

A few people recommended Bad Blood to me, and I’m not sure what I expected, but it wasn’t this absolutely riveting true crime story.

Double date: A book whose sequel you immediately had to read

I marathoned the first four books in the Wayward Children series! I could not get enough! (My hold on book five expired so I am back on the list and impatiently waiting…)

Let’s go to the movies: A book/series that should be adapted to the screen

I didn’t love Jennifer Strange, but I think it would make a really cool movie!

Dreamy stargazing: A book that made you go ahhhh and ohhhh

Definitely Saga! I’m not sure if this would be the “dreamy stargazing” kind of oohing and aahing, but there were definitely oohs and ahhs happening while I read.

Fun at the fair: A book full of colours

I’m interpreting this really literally and going with another graphic novel: Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me! I loved the color palette in this book.

Amusement park adventure: A book that was a rollercoaster

I think Love and Other Words is kind of the definition of an emotional rollercoaster. I think I felt every possible emotion while reading this book.

Picnic with cherries: A book whose food descriptions made you feel all *heart eyes*

Most recently, Always and Forever, Lara Jean.

Trip to the museum: A book that taught you valuable stuff

“What’s the worst thing that could possibly happen and how bad would that really be” is something that Calm the F*ck Down taught me to ask myself whenever I’m panicking.


Please consider yourself tagged if you think this looks like fun! What’s a book that taught you something? Which book was an emotional rollercoaster? Let’s talk in the comments!
