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 […]

A Walk Down Memory Lane: Scholastic Book Fairs

A Walk Down Memory Lane: Scholastic Book Fairs

Posted May 8, 2020 in Bookish Things // 8 Comments

I’m feeling a bit nostalgic today. Who remembers going to Scholastic Book Fairs when they were younger? Those things were the best, right?  I am so glad they’re still around, because they were a highlight of my school year.  I still remember that moment when it felt like books were going to go digital and I remember one of my concerns being these book fairs… so many kids would want to go just to get out of class and go, and they’d find a book and it would change everything.  Not that it is an impossible stretch in a technologically driven world, but […]

The #NowWeRise Book Tag

The #NowWeRise Book Tag

Posted April 3, 2020 in Tags // 2 Comments

The #NowWeRise Book Tag was created by Bec’s Books back in 2018, and while I didn’t participate in it back then, I’ve been holding on to it since I saw it drop on Written Word Worlds.  This book tag was create to celebrate Children of Blood and Bone, which was one of the first very impactful YA fantasys featuring rich minority cultures.  Others came before, and other came after, but if you ask readers the first time they truly interacted with a non-White non-Western-European-inspired fantasy world… Children of Blood and Bone will jump first to many, many minds. As it’s a […]

The Wonderstruck Book Tag // Taylor Swift + Books= YES!

The Wonderstruck Book Tag // Taylor Swift + Books= YES!

Posted January 30, 2020 in Tags // 6 Comments

Welcome, loves, to the first book tag this year!  Tags are something I enjoy on the blog, and I absolutely intend to keep them up, especially because it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers, and add a bit of a fun list-style post to the daily roundup. January’s tag is one I stole from Purely Olivia, and one she posted about this time last year.  This tag combines Taylor Swift and books, which is a fun combo, and Olivia created it herself!  I very rarely talk about music on this blog (except for tags like The Song Request […]

The First 10 Books I Reviewed on My Blog

The First 10 Books I Reviewed on My Blog

Posted April 23, 2019 in Memes // 6 Comments

Did you know that The Literary Phoenix has been online since 2009? I will fully admit that I haven’t been consistent with my blog over the years.  I’ve taken breaks.  And by breaks, I’m talking one post every six months for years.  I was not a good blogger for 85% of the time that I’ve been here.  But there’s been book reviews over the years. Some of the reviews are for books I wouldn’t read again… but there are plenty of books I read back in 2011 that I would still read again!  I can tell you that my reviewing has […]
