My Life in Books Tag

Posted August 27, 2017 | 29 Comments

It’s time for another book tag! I saw this on Delighted Reader, but it was originally posted by Rantings of a Reading Addict.

I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. I’m only going to use books I’ve read & liked, except when that obviously isn’t the case. Most link to my reviews

Find A Book For Each of Your Initials

Cam Girl by Leah Raeder

Dark Matter by Blake Couch

Count Your Age on the Shelf.
Which book is it?

Discount Armageddon by Sean McGuire

It’s the *mumbles*th book on my Kindle.

Pick a Book Set In Your City

Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

Alex, Approximately by Jean Bennett – other one

Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

These aren’t set specifically in my city, but all California settings. Bad Romance is set in the area I live, and the other two are set in areas I frequently visit.

Pick a Book That Represents a Destination You’d Love to Travel To

Where to begin …

Love, in English by Karina Halle – Spain

Racing the Sun by Karina Halle – Capri (Italy)

Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle – New Zealand

You get the idea.

Pick a Book That’s Your Favorite Color

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

This is the closest I could get to black & pink (various shades).

Which Book Do You Have the Fondest Memories Of?

The Saddle Club series by Bonnie Bryant

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

The 1st is from my childhood. Several of the girls where I took riding lessons would all trade books and talk about them once a week after the lesson. Horses, books, and good friends = good times. I’m not explaining why the 2nd book does. It just does. πŸ˜‰

Which Book Did You Find the Most Difficult Reading?

The Other Life by Susanna Winnacker

It was difficult because I HATED it. The only thing that saved it from getting stabbed was the fact it was an eBook.

Which Book on Your TBR Pile Will Give You The Biggest Sense of Accomplishment?

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson – 768 pgs.

I absolutely love his other book (Seveneves), which is longer that this one. I can’t wait to finally dive into it.

The End.

  1. This looks like fun! I would have trouble finding a book set in the exact city where I live, but could probably do what you did–and do a more general state-wide field. Just using L.A. would probably work. And there are lots of books set there. πŸ™‚ The Time Traveler’s Wife is a good one.

  2. Ooh fun! But what was that? I didn’t catch what number book on your kindle that was πŸ˜‰ It’s always fun reading books about places you’re familiar with! And Spain, Italy, and New Zealand do sound like great places to visit. I’ve always wanted to go to Italy. Funny that Time Traveler’s Wife is your good memory book because I feel like I was scarred by that book. Like, it just affected me so much emotionally that I had nightmares and everything. But then, I read it during a bad time in my life, so maybe that has to do with it lol.

      Wasn’t I clear? It’s the *mumbles*th book! Sheesh. πŸ˜› Oh, The Time Traveler’s Wife made me SOB. It hit me hard. But it was at a good time and has good connections for me. It’s also the 1st book throughout my life that I could confidently say was my favorite book. Still is.

    I like this tag. I want to read Leah Raeder’s books someday. I have trouble finding many books set on Vancouver Island BC, in Canada. Italy and New Zealand sound like nice places to visit.
