Tag Thursday – The Bookish Adventure Tag

Welcome everybody to my first book tag in a long time! Tag Thursday is where I scour the internet and all things bookish to find interesting ‘quizzes’ to answer so that you get to know more about me and my blog. Today, I bring to you The Bookish Adventure Tag created by the amazing Umairah @ Sereadipity! Make sure to check out her blog! I was tagged in February (yes it’s been a month and some days now) by Umairah so I’m sorry that it took me so long to do this!

Without further ado, let’s get started!

RULES:

Imagine that you are an intrepid literary adventurer- braving the harsh bookish wilderness, traversing jungles of pages and slashing through vines of words. Where in the vast world of books would you go?

  • Write about one place mentioned in a book you wish you could visit and why.
  • List 3-5 things that you would do there.
  • Mention which souvenirs, if any, you would bring back with you.
  • Then tag some more literary explorers and please link back to the creator (Umairah @ Sereadipity) so I can see all of your adventures!

I just finished Watching You by Lisa Jewell and I loved it! I’ve wanted to visit England for a long time and this book is set in Bristol. I’ve done a bit of research, and here are the three places that I’d love to visit if I could go!

I love history, so the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery would be at the top of my list!

I also loved the description of Melville Heights in the book, so I’d definitely want to visit it and see the beautiful town!

I’m a total Victorian Era geek and I would be beyond excited to tour Tyntesfield, “a Victorian Gothic Revival house”, that has some reportedly beautiful gardens! Just the thought of visiting the place is making me itch to get a ticket right away!

Souvenirs: I’m not really one for souvenirs, but if I would get anything, I’d probably go shopping and buy a lot of clothes and shoes. I’d also love a tasseled boot like Joey’s in the book.

I Tag:

Meeghan | Kay | Mel | Jenaca | Aoife

I hope you guys enjoy! If I haven’t tagged you but you still want to do the tag, go right ahead and do it, but make sure to link back to me and Umairah so that we can both check out your posts!

WWW Wednesday #15

Hello and welcome to WWW Wednesday! WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Let’s get started!

What I Just Finished:

All covers are from Goodreads unless stated otherwise

Last week, I finally finished Vicious (reviewhere) and I really liked it! It wasn’t a five star, but I would still highly recommend it!

Damaged was predictably sweet, while thrilling in some parts. I also really loved the legal aspect in it!

In The Woods was a huge disappointment. The story had great potential, and then the ending had to ruin the book for me. Review will probably be up on Friday!

What Am I Currently Reading:

MY LIBRARY HOLD HAS FINALLY COME THROUGH!!!! I’ve been waiting to read Watching You since December of last year! I’m glad I didn’t buy it yet, and that my patience is paying off. This is okay so far and I’m itching to find out what is truly going on in this secret filled book!

What Do I Plan on Reading Next:

I’m going to be reading Stalking Jack The Ripper as a group read and I’m excited because it’s historical mystery – two of my favorite genres! I’m also in need of something light and happy so I also want to read The Restaurant Critic’s Wife.

That’s it for this Wednesday! What are you reading? Do you have any thoughts on any books that I’m reading, just finished, or want to read next? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s!)

Popsugar Reading Challenge TBR (Part One)

Welcome everybody to my Popsugar Reading Challenge TBR (Part One). This is my very first reading challenge, and I’m super excited to mark off as many criteria as I possibly can before the year ends. Today I’m going to list the books that I (think) I’ll read for this years challenge questions.

I’m going to split this into two posts because it takes a lot of time to link, add pictures, etc…

Let’s get started.

A book becoming a movie in 2019:

Not sure. If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears.

Update: This was recommended to me by Molly @ Silver Button Books: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple.

My favorite books from when I was a kid:

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix


A book written by a musician (fiction or nonfiction):

The Shining by Stephen King

Apparently, Stephen King is a musician! So, maybe it’s about time I got over my fear of horror and tried to read some of his books.


A book you think should be turned into a movie:

Don’t I have to read the book first to decide??? But guessing from the cover/summary, I’d say maybe Long Road to Mercy by David Baldacci.
