I was not tagged to do this, but instead found it from the lovely, Adventures of a Bibliophile (she has a pretty amazing blog so go check it out! This is her post). Anyway, I have been wanting to do a few more tags and this one looked perfect. It’s not too long, and it’s still fun. So let’s begin
This was pretty difficult for me to come up with, but luckily I had to do it for Instagram. So I had the books already handy in my mind.
U- Utopia by Thomas More
S- Sabriel by Garth Nix
O- Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
M- The Metamorphosis by Frank Kafka
Count Age Along Bookshelf
King Arthur and the Knights of His Round Table. I forgot I even had this book, but it’s from when I was going through a real Arthurian England phase. It’s next to The Mists of Avalon.
Pick a Book Set in Your City/Country
I immediately thought of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Holla New York!
Pick a Book With a Destination You Would Love to Travel to
This is really difficult because a lot of the books I read, I definitely do not want to be. There is either political unrest or just general not fantastic things happening. So I thought I would go for a tame one, Frogkisser by Garth Nix. There are still things going on, no doubt, but not where I personally am worried about my life.
Hands down, Abhorsen by Garth Nix. I am a sucker for burgundy/red.
Which Books Do You Have the Fondest Memories of?
I have to say the Garth Nix Series (Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen) and the Daine Tamora Pierce series. Purely for nostalgic reasons, being back home has made me fall in love with all these older books again.
Which Book Did You Have the Most Difficulty Reading?
The Idiot by Elif Batumann. You may have read my review of it, but basically it was long and I could not connect to the main character.
Emma by Jane Austen. I chose this for a couple of reasons. 1) I am planning on reading it anyway so that I can experience this accomplishment sooner. 2) This really is on my TBR because I want to read more than just Pride and Prejudice!
Let’s Discuss: What book in your TBR will give yo the biggest sense of accomplishment?
