In the beginning…

I’ve been a part of the book community on Twitter since 2014ish. I don’t entirely know how I started getting involved – but I did. That same year I also started bookstagramming. So many of the people I interacted with had blogs, but I had tried that a couple times already and it just wasn’t for me – so I stuck with Twitter and Instagram.

Inside and Out Book Tag

Did I do a book tag just a few days ago? Yes, yes I did. But you know what? This is a busy week and I didn’t prepare my blog ahead of time like I should have so we’re doing another one!

Thank you to Grey from Use Your Words for tagging me in this! I tried to research who originally created the tag but I was unable to figure it out. Looks like this one has maybe been around for a while? If you have any leads please let me know down in the comments! I hate not giving credit where it’s due.

Inside flap/back of the book summaries: too much info or not enough?

The Book Snob Tag

I like to think I’m not a book snob but in reality y’all probably think I am. And I’m okay with that. I like what I like *shrug emoji* Grey from Use Your Words was a darling and tagged me in this and it was originally created by tia and all the books on YouTube!

Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?

I used to be a hardcore READ THE BOOK BEFORE THE MOVIE person but now like who has time for that? Really I don’t even watch that many movies or tv shows so it usually isn’t an issue. Right now I’d say I mostly read them after I see the adaptation.

Celebrating Sweater Weather with the Autumn Tag

I don’t think anybody is more ready than I am for cool autumn days where I can curl up in my favorite sweater with a hot pumpkin spice latte. Those are the days I live for. The days that feed my soul. The days that I anxiously await every year.

They haven’t quite arrived yet in my part of the world but they are getting close! To celebrate I’ll be completing The Autumn Tag that was created by Jenn from Jenniely!

Hot chocolate – what is your comfort book?

I feel like I kind of have a lot of comfort books – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, If I Stay by Gayle Forman, Confess by Colleen Hoover, Harry Potter. On any given day I can hug one of these books to my heart and feel warm fuzzy feelings.

Taylor Swift’s Lover Book Tag [Original]

Lover has been on repeat since it’s release and I’m head over heels in love with it! I was planning on doing a post where I matched a book up with each song but it seemed like a million people were already doing that so I thought why not make a book tag instead?

Rules

  • Know somebody who loves Taylor? Tag them! If you donโ€™t know of anybody though, thatโ€™s okay too, you should still do the tag!
  • There is a prompt for each song but don’t feel pressured to do them all!
  • Link back to this post so Mari will get a notification that you did it and can come see your answers! Also because crediting creators is nice.
  • Feel free to use any of the graphics or make your own if you want!

Hungry by H.A. Swain is one of my least favorite books. The premise is interesting but the execution was one of the worst I’ve ever seen. And what was that ending?! A dumpster fire.
