THREE BOOKISH THINGS TAG || Bookworm Habits & Opinions

I do love odd numbers, so I really couldn’t pass up a chance on answering the Three Bookish Things Tag which I found at Paper Fury‘s blog! Book tags are indeed tough cookies but this was so much fun to answer especially after I tweaked a few of the questions! So here’s a list of my recommendations, my unsavory bookworm habits, and evidence of my inability to remain in control.

Enjoy!

3 READ ONCE AND LOVED AUTHORS

NAOMI NOVIK I fell in love with her writing from the first page! Rarely are authors able to do that for me.

RACHEL LYNN SOLOMON – There was so much of myself that I saw in Solomon’s book, You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone. I’m drawn to her work because of realistic and empowering her characters were written. There was so much heart.

JO NESBO – I found Nesbo’s writing to be very atmospheric and gritty; the characters, unlikable, and yet there was something about his work that impressed me. It was the way he carried out the story, making each chapter intriguing and leaving readers guessing on what happens next.

3 RECENT HIGHLIGHTS IN MY BOOKS

“You are young and have only just begun to build. What might have broken in an older woman will merely reshape. Take that. Build upon that.” – Daniel Wheatley, The Zanna Function

“Death touches us all, but it is not ultimate. Should the whole world simply lie down and die? Give up the fight? If not, then why should you?” – Lydia Sherrer, Accidental Witch 

“A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy, and suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth, and you’ll know the debt is paid.” – George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

3 SERIES’ BINGED

THE GREAT LIBRARY BY RACHEL CAINE – I was unstoppable with this one. I rated all of the books five stars because…well, they were THAT good. My pulse was on a roller coaster during this series.

THE LILY SINGER ADVENTURES BY LYDIA SHERRER – I’d have to say this is my favourite urban fantasy read! It was such a comfort to read this series, honestly.

THE ANCIENT MAGUS BRIDE BY KORE YAMAZAKI – This is a fantasy manga which I absolutely adored!

3 UNPOPULAR BOOKISH OPINIONS

HARRY POTTER WAS NOT A BIG PART OF MY CHILDHOOD. Although I did enjoy the HP series, it did not impact me. I know a lot of bookworms’ identities were greatly shaped by this series but not mine.

YOU MAY NOT BE IMPACTED BY DIVERSITY, BUT IT IS IMPORTANT. I’ve read people tweet about how they grew up not reading diverse books and they don’t see the fuss why people complain about it now. Personally, that is a self absorbed way of thinking. It makes no difference to YOU but for us? It is builds confidence, inclusivity, sensitivity, and nurtures a generation.

I DON’T COLLECT BOOKS. I may love a book but I don’t buy collector’s editions or rare copies of books.

3 BOOK GOALS FOR THE YEAR

I WANT TO UNHAUL MY BOOKS! I don’t own that many but I would rather give away many of them to a new home than have them collect dust on my shelves.

MEET A CERTAIN NUMBER OF NON-FICTION BOOKS READS!

FINISH READING THE STACK OF CLASSICS I OWN.

Red Black Rose

Tell me your unpopular bookish opinions! Which author do you think everyone should read? Oh, and do confess, which book did you buy last because of the cover?

    This is such a fun tag! I’ve never seen it before and I might have to feature it on my blog eventually 🙂

    I also have a certain number of non-fiction books I want to read this year! I have my goal at 10 and I’m hoping I can finish them all before the year ends. I might end up reading a few in one month to finish it 😛

    Oh this is such a fun tag, I love it 🙂
    I can’t wait to read Rachel Lynn Solomon’s debut, it sounds incredible – I am also so impatient to get to The Great Library series, it sounds awesome just as well 😀
    I love your choice of book covers here, they’re all stunning! ❤

    I feel the same about Harry Potter! I wasn’t a big reader as a child though, and I didn’t read HP (well, the first four books) until just a few years ago. And I don’t collect books, either! If I really loved a book, I’d probably want a physical copy but never end up getting it. xD I don’t look for collectors editions or whatever–I don’t see the point of having more than one copy of a book!

    The struggle of unloading all those books is real… my bookshelves are groaning, but I really want to give mine to a good home, a charity shop won’t cut it!
