The Perfect Book Tag

Hello, earthlings! This month has been pretty up and down, so I’m ready for something easy and structured like a book tag! I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I saw The Orangutan Librarian do this book tag ,and it looked fun, so I wanted to try my hand at it as well.

The Fall Bucket List Book Tag

Hello, lovelies! University has been cranking up its difficulty at the moment and I’ve been struggling to keep up with posting regularly. Thankfully, Marta @ The Book Mermaid saved my butt by tagging me in a nice and easy book tag!

I freaking love fall. Or, more realistically, I love the idea of fall. I live in Texas, so it gets pretty hot in the summer. I recently moved cities now that I’m going to university and the place where I moved to is way more humid than where I used to live. Humidity + heat + large campus is not a good look. I look forward to fall every year, but the typical fall weather only lasts a week here in Texas. We have six months of summer, one week of fall, six months of winter, and one week of spring. Basically, Texas hates nice temperatures. Anyhow, I love the thought of autumn, and I’m ready to fall straight into this tag! (bad, dry pun intended)

The Rules

  1. Link back to the original creator (Tiffany @ Read by Tiffany) in your post.
  2. Feel free to use any of my graphics in your post, or create your own!
  3. Tag 7 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them.

Identity Crisis Book Tag

Hello! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve been on the blogosphere.

Image result for hi gif

Over the end of the summer, I scheduled a whole bunch of book reviews to tide me over into the first month of college. I just wanted to make sure I got acclimated to my new environment, and I didn’t want to add onto the already pretty rigorous workload (at least for the first month). Now I’m back, and I’ve been tagged by Norees @ No Reads Too Great and The Orangutan Librarian to do this tag! Please, please, please check out their blogs because they are both very lovely folks who make some pretty interesting content!

THE RULES:

  1. Take all the quizzes down below and record your answers.
  2. NO CHEATING. You get one shot to take each quiz.
  3. Give credit to the creator Loretta @ The Laughing Listener or tag her on twitter @LaughnListener so she can see everyone’s answers!!
  4. Tag some friends to spread the fun!

I’m always down to try some bookish quizzes to further procrastinate on my homework assignments, and this tag gives me an excuse to do so so let’s do it!

[Also, a fair warning: I have either not read a lot of these/it’s been a while since I’ve read a book in this series, so I’m not going to know a lot of characters that have been chosen.]

YA Books Set in Schools

Image result for school gif

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling the back-to-school spirit right now. Everywhere I turn I see school supplies and backpacks. Online, there are so many back-to-school deals. On YouTube, people who look like they’ve graduated years ago give young students advice. It got me thinking, what could I contribute to the back-to-school frenzy? I’d have crappy school advice, but I do know YA books! Why not recommend some good YA books that are set at school?

Whether you’re already in school, about to go, or done with school and want to reminisce about your past as a student, here are some YA books with school settings!

I decided to take a little break from packing up all my stuff, and what better way to do that than with a nice little tag? Thank you to the wonderful Marta @ The Book Mermaid for giving me the opportunity to rest my arms a bit. Who knew moving was so stressful and energy draining?

The RULES:

1 – List some of your good reading habits.
2 – Tag the person who tagged you.
3 – Pingback to the original post by Ally Writes Things.
4 – Nominate some of your blogging friends.

Let’s get cracking!

Let’s Talk: Favorite Book/Series

I’ll be honest: I don’t have a lot of non-internet friends that like to read. That means I don’t have a lot of people to talk to face-to-face about books, which is the whole reason why I started this blog. That being said, I’ve been wondering what everyone’s favorite book/series is and why, because I’ve been thinking about expanding my horizons and reading something I wouldn’t normally pick up (or maybe something I would read but never knew existed). Also, I’m going down the rabbit hole and trying to expand my TBR list to combat my ongoing TBR cleanse.

So now I ask: What is your favorite book or series and why?

I’ll go first.

I need your help: Kindles!

I’m probably going to delete this later, but I’ve been thinking about getting a Kindle e-reader for quite some time now. I used to have a tablet that I read all my ebooks on but now that I don’t have it anymore, I was thinking about investing in an e-reader since that was basically all I ever used to tablet for anyways.

Image result for kindle

Currently I’m reading all my ebooks on my laptop, which can become a hassle at night because I love to lay down on my bed and read, and holding a laptop above my face is… well… very dangerous. I haven’t dropped my laptop on my face yet, but I don’t want to find out how it feels when a brick of metal hits my nose. Yeah… no thank you.

I only know one person who owns a Kindle (I don’t know too many people in my town who love to read in general) and she said I should invest in an e-reader. However, I wanted more people’s thoughts and opinions before I put down $100 or so for a Kindle.

That being said, I have a question for you:

If you own a Kindle, which model do you own and
do you think it’s worth it? Why or why not?

If you own a different e-reader, which one do
you own and what are your thoughts about it?

Please let me know about your thoughts in the comments because I could really use your help!

Until next time….
