‘Books I’ll Probably Never Read’ Tag.

This tag was created by littlespider9 on YouTube.

I wasn’t tagged for this but I saw it on Ariel Bissett’s channel and I just thought… that tag is so me. There are so many books that I can’t help but roll my eyes when people talk about them because they’re so hyped, so many series that I just don’t want to finish… so here’s the chance to tell you about them. I also love these kind of controversial tags – this one reminds me a bit of the unpopular opinions tag, which is probably my favourite book tag ever.

1. A really hyped book you’re not interested in reading?

There are loads that I’m not interested in, because hype really turns me off a book. I even refused to read Harry Potter for ages because of the hype.

The ‘Back to the Future’ Tag.

I was tagged for this a looooong time ago by the lovely Orangutan Librarian here on WordPress. I take my sweet time getting around to tags, that’s just how I roll.

Confession time: I have never seen Back to the Future. *Ducks*

I looked at these questions and had a strong feeling of deja vu, but I searched my blog and it doesn’t look as though I’ve already done the tag. If I have, then… here it is again?


Question 1: Name a movie/book/show that makes you want to go back in time when you were younger and enjoy it all over again.

Movie: Probably Labyrinth. I still think it’s brilliant but I’d love to watch it for the first time again. I know it a little bit too well now – there are no surprises at all.

OK, So Booksically… Tag

I saw the title of this tag and knew I had to do before I’d even watched the video. (Video I saw was this one by LilyCReads, the original by Okay So Booksically is here. I may now need to watch a lot of his videos.) I really shouldn’t be doing tags I haven’t been tagged for when I’ve still not done so many that I have been tagged for, but I am a law unto myself so…

Question 1: Tell Us About Your User / Blog / Channel Name and Your Real Name.

My blog is primarily about books but I do sometimes post about stuff I’ve been getting up to. I usually try and link it back to books though. I also have a card-making blog (which is more or less abandoned) and a new blog about beauty/fashion etc.

The Goodreads Book Tag.

I have actually done this tag before, but I was tagged recently (no, not recently – I just checked and it was in  June!!!) by Lindsey at Paradis Books (thank you!) and figured I may as well redo it because it’s the sort of tag where your answers will change a lot.


What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?

The Bad Beginning, the first in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series by Lemony Snicket. Which means we are now 11 days into March and I haven’t finished a book yet this month!

1. Best book and/or series that you’ve read in 2016?

Best book: Wonder by R. J. Palacio.

Best series: Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness – I think it’s also the only series I’ve actually read the whole of in 2016… I’m really not good with series.

The Make-Up Book Tag.

I found this tag on Ariel Bissett’s channel and LOVED it. I love the idea of a tag combining books and make-up – I’ve wanted to do a make-up blog for years but never been able to commit to it the way I have with my book blog. I’m not sure who it was created by unfortunately – even Ariel couldn’t find the original video!

All make-up mentioned is from cruelty-free companies who do not test on animals. However, there are some companies mentioned whose parent companies do test on animals, and I will advise wherever this is the case. I have decided to buy from these companies to make the point that cruelty-free sells, much like if a vegetarian buys a vegetarian meal in a restaurant that also sells meat – they are still funding that company, but they are showing where they stand.

Dashing Through the Snow Book Tag.

I’ve been looking for a good Christmas-themed tag and found this one on My Tiny Obsessions‘ blog. I’m not sure on the creator, unfortunately. I am soooooo looking forward to going to my mum’s for Christmas and reading lots of books, drinking lots of wine and opening lots of prezzies.

On with the tag:

1. Name a book you would like to see under the Christmas tree.

I have asked for The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil, a graphic novel by Stephen Collins, but I think my boyfriend forgot all about that. So I’d like to see it under the tree, but I’m not holding out hope!
