I’m back with another bookish tag on my blog today and we all know what a tag post means… I RAN OUT OF BLOG POST IDEAS. But I don’t mind because these posts are fun and I always enjoy talking about books as much as I can and I’m certainly enjoying writing more book-related content on my blog over the past month or so! I stole this tag from Kris at Boston Book Reader which is where I find all the book tags I do (I don’t know where she finds them but she is the Queen of finding good book tags!) so go and check out her post here! And if you want to do this one yourself, I’d love to hear your answers!
Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for this wonderful idea for a post. Beth from The Reader’s Corner was the mastermind who came up with the idea and kindly let me steal it but please check out Beth’s post here! I’ve never been a member of a book club; online or otherwise. I’d love to be at some point in my life but I’m too backed up with my own books to even think about it right now. I also think it’d be amazing to have your own book club, where you have complete control over the books. So, if I had a book club, here are a handful of books I would choose.
I really love doing fun and personal posts every now and again and I recently stumbled upon Gabriella’s video about ’10 things she would save in a fire‘. This video was intended to be done as a video ‘tag’ but as you’re well aware that I definitely, 100% do not do YouTube I decided to make it into a blog post instead! But credit to Gabby for creating the tag in the first place and you can find her video here. I really enjoyed doing this and thinking of the items I would save; it really makes you realise what is sentimental to you and what isn’t and I was surprised by some of my choices. So let’s assume every human in my house is clever enough to get out themselves, with everything left, here’s the 10 things I would save If my house was on fire *but touch wood it won’t be*.
I love book to film adaptations. Apart from the select few which have been absolutely awful, most that I’ve seen I’ve really enjoyed and thought they did their paper based counterparts a lot of justice. When I’m reading a book, I often try and see it as a film in my head. I always pick actors and actresses to imagine as the characters and see the book play out – which might be a reason why I love film adaptations so much, because I’m very visual. I’ve read so many books but there’s been a few which I’ve closed and thought about how amazing it would be to see it on the big screen. Here are 5 books I would love to see as films!
So I found this tag over on Simona’s lovely blog and you know, it had Disney in the title so inevitably I had to do it. The Disney Book Tag makes you relate characters in books you’ve read to Disney characters, their traits and what happens to them. This was a lot of fun to do so I hope you enjoy!
Books are so much more to us than just words on a page. I’m sure all bookworms have their all-time favourite books which are special to them in their own way, so today I want to talk about a few of my favourites and why they mean so much to me!
