Hi all! First off, thanks to Ellie of Eleanor Sophie Writes who tagged me to do the Fellowship of the Ring book tag! I’m so stoked to do this. I apologize it took me so long!

Gandalf – A book that taught you something

Ooof. I guess it depends on what “taught” means. Tamora Pierce’s Tortall series taught me girls could be fierce fighters as well as loveable. As far as something more educational? Probably some of the ancient Greek Historians!

Frodo – A book that left a mark on you

It’s cheesy, but I always loved reading. The Elenium trilogy by David Eddings comes to mind as does Anne Bishop’s Black Jewels. I read both of them in middle school and they are two VERY different types of fantasy, but they left an indelible mark on me, and I totally know why I read the things I do to this day — it’s because of books like those. (Same for Tamora Pierce and Meg Cabot tbh).

Legolas – A book you finished in one sitting

See, okay. I finish most books in one sitting. So this is a bit…of an irrelevant question for me.

Gimli – A book that features an unlikely friendship

…can I same Gimli and Legolas? Haha! But in all seriousness I think that the group in The Raven Cycle is an unlikely friendship.

Merry – A book that pleasantly surprised you

I’ll admit to the fact that Frozen Crown by Greta Kelly pleasantly surprised me. I read it through the library then went and immediately bought myself a copy. I loved it. Also, The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren.

Pippin – A book that made you laugh

So, the Crave series chapter titles never fail to make me laugh. Red, White and Royal Blue too.

Boromir – A book/series that you think ended too soon

Any of Margaret Rogerson’s standalones, An Enchantment of Ravens and Sorcery of Thorns . So good! I want more!

Sam – A book with memorable side characters who stole the show

All of SJM’s side characters to be honest!

Aragorn – A good book with a bad/average cover

They’re not horrible, but The Queen’s Rising and The Queen’s Resistance have nice covers, but they’re just average looking. The books are five star reads.

Gollum – A book that had great potential but disappointed you in the end

Hah! Sadly, lots. I just wrote a whole blog post about disappointing sequels this year , but aside from that Elantris. Didn’t like it AT ALL.

I’m tagging all you who read this and want to do it!

Hello, hello, hello my lovelies! Today I come to you with the Book Prediction Tag! It was created by Book Princess Reviews and I was tagged by the wonderful Sofii at A Book A Thought! This seems like a really fun tag, and I’ve had to actually put some thought into it, because I really wasn’t sure what to expect.

There are some rules that must be followed, so here we go!

Next Read

Roomies by Christina Lauren. I’ve heard a lot about these authors. And I read their YA book and didn’t love it. I’m hoping this adult one will be better than I think. I’m not holding my breath about it though.

Next 5 Star Read

I’m going with The Shadow of the Fox because Sophie recc’d it to me, and I’ve listened to part of it and I was really enjoying it. I’m only like three chapters in. That counts, right?

Next 1 Star Read

Jeeze, uhm, Moral Compass by Danielle Steele or Roomies. Just because neither of those authors are really known to me. And I don’t know if I’ll like them.

Next Love Interest (or Character that Seems Really Cool to You)

Of Ice And Shadows…I’m just gonna plop that down right here.

Next Book You’ll Be Buying

…when am I not buying books? I just bought a crap ton of stuff, but it could be anything from my list really. It’ll depend on my mood. I still really want to own Renee Ahdieh’s Wrath and the Dawn series.

Next Book That Will Leave You with a Book Hangover (and Desperately Wanting a Reread or Next in Series)

This Coven Won’t Break. I know it…I’m going to want another one.

Why did you start blogging? & Why have you kept blogging?

I used to blog off and on for years. I really started back last July, and it has been wonderful since. I really enjoy it, I do it as a hobby and to share my love of books and what I’m passionate about.

What is your favourite type of blog post to write?

Anything fun, really! I also enjoy book reviews to an extent, but fun posts, especially weekly memes or tags and monthly wrap ups and book hauls are among some of my favorites to write.

What are your top three favourite blog posts you wrote?

I can tell you my favorite is this BESpring Post about Instagram. I don’t really have any other favorites, although I do like some of my book reviews!

What are some of your favourite things to do to relax?

Read, binge watch TV and daydream!

What are three of your favourite things?

Cats (my cat specifically), books, collecting

What are your proudest blogging moments?

I do not have any yet…! Except that one post I mentioned earlier.

What are your hobbies outside of blogging?

Reading, watching tv, sewing (or anything crafty!)

Describe your personality in three words

stressed, soft, dedicated

What are your top three pet peeves?

…being yelled at from across the building, people who follow you, then unfollow you when you follow them back, and uh idk

What’s something your followers don’t know about you?

I mean I’m sure most people know but I have Crohn’s Disease, and am on way too many medications to control it. I have had one major surgery and been hospitalized for sepsis.

Also used to have lots of piercings.

And you if you’re reading this!!

Dini over at DiniPandaReads did this tag and I decided to hop on board with it.

What do you like about buying new books?

This is such a hard question. There is so much to love about it. The smell…the excitement…reading it. Having a collection. I love it so much. Almost nothing is better than getting bookmail and that jittery excitement of opening a package.

How often do you buy new books?

…Do I have to answer this one? Because it is slightly embarrassing. I buy them as often as I can. I get stressed I go buy things.

Bookstore or online book shopping: which do you prefer?

I find it really rewarding to go on the hunt for books, so I love going out and looking for books. If I’m specifically looking for something I like buying online…also again, BOOK MAIL.

Do you have a favorite bookshop?

A used bookshop called Mr. K’s. That’s about it!

Do you pre-order books?

Yep. Maybe a bit too much. Generally I only preorder if it is a sequel to a book I own and liked. Sometimes I’ll pre-order books that are firsts! It just kinda depends.

Do you have a monthly buying limit?

Yes. Do I stick to it? (I try, I really try.)

How big is your wish list?

Long. Very long.

Which three books from your wish list do you wish to own right now?

The answer is all of them. You can see my wishlist right here. I am always adding to it.
