Seven Deadly Sins | Book Tag

Woohoo! Ok so I am such a book tag lover it’s not even funny! So I was excited to be tagged for this one by Destiny @ Howling Libraries (check her out!). I was able to track this one down to a video that is no longer live so unfortunately … I will not be able to link to the creator of this tag. Sorry!


GREED: What are your most expensive and inexpensive books?

Expensive

Strange the Dreamer by Laini TaylorStrange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor

This book is probably one of the most expensive book splurges on my shelf … mainly because I insisted on preordering the signed UK cover version and paid quite a bit more for overseas shipping. BUT LOOK AT IT!!! IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!

Inexpensive

My least expensive would be one of the many free Kindle books I own or ARCs provided my publishers or authors. I’m just choosing one at random here to highlight … how about …

the midnight sea by kat ross2

The Midnight Sea (The Fourth Element #1) by Kat Ross

Which was a free Kindle book at the time (actually as far as I know it still is) and I plan to read this one soon! I have actually seen some really good reviews.

This is My Truth Now | Book Tag

I have been tagged by James @ This is My Truth – blogger and creator of this super fun tag – to participate is his awesome Truth-or-Dare themed book tag!

Rules

  • Create your own new post and call it “Tag: This-Is-My-Truth-Now” and be sure to include in your tags the words — without quotes — “ThisIsMyTruthNow Tag”
  • Be sure to mention the person who tagged you and maybe tell everyone something interesting about the person who tagged you.
  • Include a link to the original post (https://thisismytruthnow.com/2017/05/31/tag-this-is-my-truth-now/) mentioning the creator of this tag (James @ This is My Truth) so we can see how many people choose to play along.
  • Choose 12 bloggers to tag and include a link to their latest post, so others can check them out and meet new people.
  • Answer all 12 questions in The Challenge Questions section, but replace the 12th question with your own new one around telling the truth or revealing something interesting about yourself — you can leave the existing if you can’t think of something. (comment your answers to my question below before you change and post)
  • Make sure to add your own DARE to your tagged guests at the bottom of the post!
  • If you haven’t been tagged, but you want to play along, you can totally jump on in and post responses to the tag on your blog.
  • Include these rules when you copy/paste to your own post.

TRUTH: Answer the challenge questions as truthful as possible!

OR

DARE: If you choose not to accept the tag, you have to follow through on whatever dare the person who tags you chooses

The DARE given to me is to re-read [within the next 30 days] the book that has the lowest rating of all the books you’ve read in the last five (5) years.

Nope! No way I’m suffering through that!

So here is my TRUTH:

My Life in Books | Book Tag

I found this posted by the fabulous May @ My 1st Chapter (check our her blog!) and thought it would be another fun book tag for the week!

The original video of this tag has been removed and I cannot locate the original creator so (I’m sorry whoever you are).

Furthermore, my bookshelves are a bit insane at the moment and contain about a million books that I have not even read yet, so for this tag, I will be using my Goodreads “Read” shelf to answer.


Find a book for each of your initials

H – Howl’s Moving Castle (Howl’s Moving Castle #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

F – Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

L – Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French kiss #2) by Stephanie Perkins


Howls Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

   Howl’s Moving Castle (Howl’s Moving Castle #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

This book is a lot of fun. Of course I have a special place in my heart for the movie version of this story, and while the book is actually different in many ways, it was just as good and very nostalgic. I gave this book a 5/5 star rating. It is indeed a part of my soul.


Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

   Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

This is one of those series that I would have enjoyed a lot more in my teens. Maggie Stiefvater is one of my all time favorite authors with her The Raven Cycle series and The Scorpio Races (an all time favorite). This series reads a lot younger and cliché than her other works. This particular book, however, was a good read and a solid conclusion to the series (Stiefvater did add a 4th book to the series titled Sinner which is actually my favorite of the series but is more of a spin off story). Still I gave this book a 3.5/5 star rating.

  • Mention the creator of the tag

Reading on the couch or on the bed?

While I do love reading in bed, I can pretty much guarantee that I will get through about 2 pages before I’m completely comatose. For this reason, and because I want to actually read more than a page or two at a time, I choose couch … err … um … chair actually. I have this wonderful reading recliner in the corner of my bedroom, right next to my amazing picture windows. This is my reading haven of choice, unless it’s sunny and warm, in which case the hammock chair hanging from the tree in my backyard is where you will find me with a book in my hand.
