It’s been ages since I’ve done one of these and the long list of tags that I need to do have been growing and sending me into a mild panic, so I figured now is as good a time as any to start cutting it down! I decided to go with something a little simpler to ease me back into the groove of doing tags so I’ve decided to do The Last Ten Books book tag that Kerri @ Kerri McBookNerd tagged me in last month.
Thanks so much for the tag, Kerri! If you haven’t already done so, do check out her blog for awesome reviews, spotlights and other great bookish content! 😍
Now, let’s get down to business…
After doing a little internet sleuthing, I found that this original tag was created by booktuber: Marc Nash and you can watch his original video below. Thanks for creating such an awesome tag! 😊
THE LAST BOOK I GAVE UP ON
This took me a little while to figure out cos I actually couldn’t remember the last time I DNF’d a book. So I had to dig deep into my archives and I realised the last book was Relentless Habit by Karen Renee. It was a sexy romance but I found it neither sexy nor romantic… So 🤷🏻♀️
THE LAST BOOK I REREAD
Oof, this is another thing I haven’t done in months! I think the last book I re-read was Aurora Rising in preparation for my buddy read with Sammie for book two, which we finished earlier this year. I listened to the audiobook with my re-read and it was fantastically done with a full cast and I loved it!
THE LAST BOOK I BOUGHT
Battle Royal by Lucy Parker. I am so incredibly excited to start this book because I’ve been seeing reviews for it everywhere lately and the hype is big, friends! I took a peek at the first few paragraphs last night and I could already tell I’m going to love it 😍
THE LAST BOOK I WROTE IN THE MARGINS OF
I’m going a bit rogue on this one because I don’t ever write in the margins? But I did write sticky notes and place them along the margins for a few books this year and the last one was Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. This one came in like a wrecking ball and I needed to chronicle my feels.
THE LAST BOOK THAT I HAD SIGNED
Well, I do have quite a few signed editions thanks to being subscribed to a book box (which has now changed so I’ll definitely miss that)! The last ‘signed’ purchase that I made was the Brown Sisters Series by Talia Hibbert. It’s a digital signature though, which is kind of a bummer, but still counts, right?
THE LAST BOOK I LOST
It’s been a very long time since I last lost a book—which is actually kind of surprising to me considering I’m pretty forgetful 😂 The last book I lost was The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice. I think I might’ve left this on a plane or airport back in 2009/10 and it made me pretty sad cos I was getting really into it!
THE LAST BOOK I HAD TO REPLACE
I had to request a replacement copy of The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones by Daven McQueen from BD last year because my order was so water damaged and ripped that I couldn’t even open the book! This is my interpretation of the question lol
THE LAST BOOK I ARGUED OVER
Oh… Um… Have I ever argued over a book before? I don’t think that I ever have… At least not that I can actually remember 😂
THE LAST BOOK I PRE-ORDERED
As an international reader, I don’t actually pre-order a lot of books unless it’s for a special signed edition or for pre-order goodies because most of the time I get them late anyway. 😂 But according to my records the last book I pre-ordered was Jade Fire Gold by June C.L. Tan! It looks and sounds so good and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
