Hello, hello, friends! Thanks to Leelynn tagging me on her Book Ending Spring post, I’ve remembered that I said I’d finally like to join in the fun after seeing it all over the blogosphere last fall. Honestly, if my head wasn’t attached I’d probably forget it somewhere these days because my mind is all over the show. Yikes!
For those who don’t already know, Book Ending Spring (2020) is hosted by Sam @ Fictionally Sam and Clo @ Cuppa Clo, and it’s one of the quarterly events running under the umbrella term “Bookend Events” that aspires to bring the book blogging community closer together! You can find more information on the announcement page and you can sign up to join as well, if you want in on the blogging fun! So… Without further ado, let’s get to day two’s prompt: The Wedding Tag!
- Answer the prompts
- Tag some friends
- Link back to the original post and be sure to mention the creator (Sam @ Fictionally Sam)
- Have fun!
The Wedding Tag is an OG tag that plays off the wedding phrase: “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.”
What is the oldest book on your shelf?
I find this question a little vague although I’m probably over thinking it. Is it the book I’ve had on my shelf the longest? Or is it the oldest publication date? 😂 I’m going to go with the book I’ve had on my current shelves the longest and that’s probably my beautiful flexibound copy of Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. It’s gorgeous but a total hulking chunk of a beast with very teeny tiny text that even has me shaking in my boots! 😅
your last book/bookish purchase/received
I got an email from Amazon First Reads reminding me that options were now available for April and although I still haven’t read any of the first reads books I’ve chosen in previous months, I went ahead and picked Love on Beach Avenue (The Sunshine Sisters #1) by Jennifer Probst. Yeah, the title itself is already a little cheesy but I’m here for the cheese! 🧀
a character you’d borrow for the day
Urgh, this is such a tough question to answer! I want to borrow so many characters for the day, how do I just pick one?! Hmm… I think I would borrow Elisabeth Scrivener from Sorcery of Thorns and she can take me to the Great Libraries and she can tell me about the books and I can witness the magic of these enchanting and enchanted books all day! Maybe she can also teach me how to be a badass grimoire fighter 😂 …And hopefully she’ll take me to meet Thorn and Silas, too 😏
A Book with the word blue in the title
I’ve been keen to read Twice In A Blue Moon by Christina Lauren ever since it released… Last year *cough* 👀 I’ve heard some pretty mixed reviews for it which has made me a little nervous about picking it up but I’m still looking forward to giving it a try! Plus I’m such a sucker for this cover (I really don’t know why but it makes me so happy)!
Please don’t feel obliged to do this if you’re not into tags!
If anyone not tagged would like to do it then feel free to do so 😊
