The Bedtime Book Tag

Posted January 26, 2017 by Bonnie in Book Tag / 10 Comments

Every once in a while it’s good to mix it up and do a random, fun post. I’ve never participated in a Book Tag before but I think it’s something I could get used to. 🙂 I found this Book Tag by way of Jessie at Ageless Pages Reviews who found it posted by Lindsey at Bring My Books (who also created these adorable graphics!). The original tag was created by YouTube user Kellys BookSpill, and can be found here!

Basically the entire Fever series. I don’t know how it’s even possible but I read the entire (original 5 books, all 2,354 pages) series in a single week. I was working full time and I attended 4 hours of night school four days a week as well.

Book Review – The Woman in Black by Susan Hill

 

I read a lot of horror so I feel I’m kind of immune to most I read in the genre these days. But The Woman in Black by Susan Hill freaked me out so bad I had to ask my partner to walk with me upstairs to our darkened bedroom. lol

 


Early Review – The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls: A Novel by Anton DiSclafani
This book, which I shortened to ‘Horsey Camp‘, has become the reference point for how bad a book is. “Yeah, this is shit… but is it Horsey Camp bad?” This book received all the rave reviews but I found this to be terribly dull.

 

Book Review – A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
Hands down, A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas. It has become a tradition for me to take the release day off for new installments in her Throne of Glass series but I’m planning on doing that for this book as well.

 

I’m not big on the book boyfriends but I must admit to being quite infatuated with both Rhys (A Court of Mist and Fury) and Rogan (Burn For Me/White Hot). These are my mental interpretations:

You’re welcome.

Probably Hunger Games. Or any story where the world has ended and there are zombies and I’m required to run to save my life. I like to imagine that I’d be a badass that could hold my own in hand-to- hand combat and that I wouldn’t accidentally eat some poisonous berry and die but I’d probably be one of the first to go.

I’ve read so many insane cliffhangers that I couldn’t even think of one when I got to this question. And then I was reminded how brutal the ending of Heir of Fire, the third installment in the Throne of Glass series, was. I binge read the first three and then had to wait 9 months for the next one. It was a painfully long time.

This is probably more space than night time but I think it’s gorgeous.

Definitely the Harry Potter world. Getting my school supplies in Diagon Alley. Picking out a pet. Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross Station. Taking the Hogwarts Express. Making new forever friends. Changing into our robes. Getting sorted into our respective houses. Learning about magic. Practicing magic. Roaming the castle. *sigh*

Um, no monsters? Only massive dust bunnies, please and thank you. But if I really had to pick, I’d say definitely no to Pennywise. Holy hell no.

  1. This was fun to read and heck, it’s always nice to look at Tom Hardy. I’ve only read The Court of Mist and Fury and although the MC irritated the heck out of me for most of the book, I still want to read the next ones. Need to get on that soon. I think The Shining scared me the most when I first read it – of course I was in 6th grade (don’t tell). And I’m convinced you didn’t sleep at all the week you read The Fever series, especially with everything else you had going on. I loved the first 5 books!

    • Always nice! hahaha A Court of Thorns and Roses was the first one and yea, the character was a bit annoying. I enjoyed the second one FAR more. I adored the Fever series… I’m still reading the following installments but I really wish she would have just stopped at 5.

  2. Yay! Welcome to book tags. I think it can be really fun — and a nice break from the intensive review schedule lol

    The entire Fever series in a week? DAMN. That is pretty impressive.

    Note to self: BIG NOPE TO Susan Hill’s books, ok, got it.

    I love Horsey Camp lol. I think we all have a touchstone awful book– mine was The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. AWFUL.

    How do you feel about ACoWaR’s cover? I like the colors but I find it a tad… underwhelming.

    Tom Hardy is one of my go-to headcanons. Good choice!

    • A VERY nice break! I’ll have to go back and look for some older ones I missed out on. 😀
      omg I also hated that Lemon Cake book. The other one for me was a book I had to review for Elle Magazine so I had to someone come up with something nice to say… it was damn near impossible. The Sunlit Night by Rebecca Dinerstein.
      I quite like it but I like the story behind it more.. because it was modeled after a fanart which I thought was awesome of Maas to use as inspiration.
