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!

Book Tag: Books to Read in Pairs.

This tag was created by Jen Campbell on YouTube, and the idea of it is to go around your shelves (whether virtual or physical!) and choose pairs of books that you think compliment each other well, perhaps because they have similar themes, or one is a retelling of the other, etc. Jen asks us to aim for between five and ten pairs of books so I’ve pushed myself to go for ten.

I didn’t read most of these in pairs, apart from the ones I read for university modules, but have chosen them because I think they would go well together.


1. White Teeth by Zadie Smith / Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie.

The Creatures of the Night Book Tag.

This tag was originally created by YouTuber Katytastic and I was tagged by the lovely Zezee With Books here on WordPress. I’m not a huge fan of Halloween but thought I should do something on my blog in honour of it, and this is the only tag I’ve found that I really liked.

The idea is that you choose a book that has each supernatural creature listed below in it.


1. VAMPIRE.

The Actor Book Tag.

So I finally got around to doing this original tag by icebreaker694 – thanks for the tag! Man, I’m ashamed how long it’s taking me to get through these. I mean, what else am I doing with my life?

  • Choose 8 actors and describe them in a particular movie role. Describe them and answer which book character fits the same description. (You can use the actors from the person who tagged you if you like.)
  • Tag 8 other people.
