Once Upon a Time Book Tag

Once Upon a Time Book Tag

Posted September 4, 2020 in Tags // 3 Comments

Good morning everyone! This month, I’ll be doing a tag I picked up from Iris @ Hoard of Books (recently rebranded to Countless Words With Iris)!  Iris completed this tag back in 2017, so it’s another oldie-but-goodie.  This was originally created by Sugar Dusted Pages and, according to Lenna, the “Once Upon a Time” Book Tag is all about bookish firsts… and how much fun is that? Full stop, though, Iris actually tagged me to do this one back in 2017, which I only just now noticed going through and copying the questions.  I am officially the worst tag follow-upper.  I’m sure […]

Great Books I Don’t Remember

Great Books I Don’t Remember

I am so excited because it’s been an ETERNITY since I bought books for myself. Like, real books.  Audible gives me two audiobooks a month, but those cannot grace my glorious bookshelves! AH SO EXCITED. But seriously, the reason I never buy books anymore is, frankly, I AM OUT OF ROOM.  It’s tragic.  I have 2.5 bookcases now in our small apartment, and the third is empty in the office that was supposed to be a […]

Top Ten Classics You Should Read Before You Die

Top Ten Classics You Should Read Before You Die

When people ask me what I like to read, my answer is “fantasy, classics, and historical fiction”.  For some reason, the one that folks have the most difficult time wrapping their head around is “classics.”  I can’t imagine why.  These books have laid the groundwork for the novels people devour today, and so many of them still hold their own.  Whether it’s the beauty of the language, or the vivacity of the story, every classic is worth picking up. For the purpose of this list, I’ve excluded all non-fiction as well as the books that will almost definitely be red […]
