Today is Thursday, which makes it book tag day! Today I’m doing the Get to Know Me Book Tag. Thank you, Tabitha, at Behind the Pages, for tagging me to do this tag earlier this week. I’m not sure who created this tag, but shoutout to whoever it was because it was a lot of fun!
I’m not tagging anyone specific for this tag, so if you see this, consider yourself tagged!
Favourite book of all time?
I have no idea. I have a hard enough time picking my favourite book of the month, let alone of all time.
Favourite book five years ago?
This question is a lot easier to answer. For the longest time, I would say that The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky was my favourite book, and I’m pretty sure I was still doing that five years ago.
This is another difficult question. I absolutely adore the Truly Devious trilogy by Maureen Johnson, but I haven’t read the spinoff standalone book yet. I also really like the Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. I’ve also slowly been working my way through the Poirot books by Agatha Christie, which are becoming a favourite of mine because they’re comforting to read.
Last book you read?
The last book I read was The Child of Fire and Earth by Barry Ryerson. This middle-grade fantasy book was full of dragons and magic and was a lot of fun to read.
Last comic book you read?
I think the last graphic novel I read was Heartstopper: Volume 4. Earlier this year, I binged all four volumes in one sitting, which was a great experience. This question also reminds me that I still have three Rivers of London graphic novels to get to soon.
What book influenced your life?
This is a hard question because there have been a lot of books that have influenced my life. I think I’m going to pick The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar because it reintroduced me to the magic of middle-grade books as an adult, and now magical middle-grade books are one of my favourite things to read. If you’re interested, here’s my review of The Ship of Shadows.
Name a book that made you ugly cry.
Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley made me ugly cry. I read this book years ago but thinking about it makes me emotional. I don’t want to spoil anything but have tissues nearby if you read it.
Name a book that made you laugh.
I think the last book that made me laugh was Dating Dr. Dil by Nisha Sharma. Even though it wasn’t my favourite rom-com, it did have a lot of funny moments where I found myself laughing to myself. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Dating Dr. Dil.
Name a book so good you dreamed about it.
I’m not sure what to pick for this question because I rarely remember my dreams. I have daydreamed about I did spend some time daydreaming about Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn while I was at work and desperately wanting to dive back into it. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Undercover Princess.
Name a book you DNFed.
I think the last book I DNFed was You’ve Reached Sam by Dustin Thao. I might revisit this book at some point, but I couldn’t get into it when I tried reading it earlier this year.
What book are you most excited to read?
I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on Amari and the Great Game by B.B. Alston. I loved Amari and the Night Brothers, and I’ve been impatiently waiting for the sequel for a long time now. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Amari and the Night Brothers.
