Christmas Cracker Book Tag

I decided that because it was the run up to Christmas and I was attempting to write a post every day for blogmas, it would be a good idea to do a festive tag. After a quick search, I stumbled across this little gem: Christmas Cracker Book Tag created by Lucy @ The Bumbling Bibliophile and Queen of Contemporary. It’s all about wintry and festive reads, and will undoubtedly start to get you in the festive spirit if you’re not already there!

I actually found this tag on Stacey’s blog @ Pretty Books, and decided that this would be the first festive tag to kick things off. As always, if you want to join in, please comment below and consider yourself tagged!

Finally Fall Book Tag

Howdy folks! I’ve been tagged by the lovely Emma @ The Terror of Knowing to do the Finally Fall Book Tag. The leaves on the trees are changing colour, the nights are drawing in, the temperature has taken a nose dive, Christmas has definitely arrived in the shops, and more nights than not I am sitting with the fire and/or a hot water bottle to stay cosy. Add these all up and it means that fall has arrived and made itself comfy. But I can’t take any of the credit for this autumnal gem, it was created by Alina aka Tall Tales – check our her video if you get the chance!

1. In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
When I think about books with a vivid setting, I instantly recall the vivid details in which the different London’s are described in Shaes of Magic by V. E. Schwab. The rich smells, colours, and textures described leave the reader in doubt as to which world they are experiencing, adding another dimension to the already rich story.

The Wanderlust Travel Tag 

It’s Wednesday again, and as it’s the middle of the week, so, I have decided to break the week up with a lovely travel tag that I found on Nikki’s blog @ Travelling With Nikki: A Blog of my travels around the world. I don’t know who the original poster is, so if you do please comment below so I can recognise them and their awesome questions!

I love answering travel tags, because they really make me think about the places I’ve been and the way I look at travel and travelling. I don’t think about many of these things unless I am about to go on a trip, or someone asks the questions, so it’s nice to put your thoughts down on paper!

Let’s get on with the show: Continue reading

You’re It! Travel Tag

‘Tag! You’re it! A travel tag’ is a YouTube channel tag that I found over @ Travelling Natural. I don’t have a YouTube channel, or at least I don’t use the channel that I have, so I thought I would adapt the tag and do it myself! It’s a snapshot questionnaire about all things travel, so if you have a blog or a YouTube channel, please consider yourself tagged an join in the fun!

25 Questions About Me Tag

I was looking for an enjoyable tag that wasn’t related to anything in particular, and stumbled across this little gem over at the blog: Emma @ Life of Gibbers. It’s a nice little introduction to random things about you, that are nicely personal without being intrusive, and give a wide idea of what I’m like and who I am than a usual bookish tag. Let’s get rollin’.

1. What is your middle name?
My middle name is a cheeky palindrome: Hannah

2. What was your favourite subject at school?
I really enjoyed both science and geography, which is probably why my degree is a BSc in Geography really.

3. What is your favourite drink?
I do love a good coffee, but I am also partial to a good glass of cold lemonade. And not sprite or some other rubbish version, proper, cloudy lemonade. Continue reading

20 Questions Book Tag

I do love a good tag, and once again, I saw that Emma had done a tag that I thought I would enjoy on her blog, and decided to tag myself. Tag Thursday is a feature on her blog, so I have decided to jump on the bandwagon this week with her. While I found it at her blog @ The Terror of Knowing, it was originally found here! It’s simple title of 20 questions if quite self explanatory, so let’s get on with the answering!

1.How many books is too many books in a book series?

Too many books is when you are finishing the books for the sake of finishing the series, rather than finishing it because you’re still enjoying it. I am a fan of a trilogy, or a series of books that is necessarily long (like Harry Potter) but I get tired of stories quickly if they start to lose steam (Bloodlines by Charlaine Harris), become too ridiculous (ASOIAF). So yes, if you’re writing it to simply make more money and spin that one good idea you had, that is too long.

2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?

I am a fan and a hater of the cliffhanger. I hate having to wait to find out the answer or the outcome when I know there is going to be another installment telling me, but I am a fan of an ambiguous ending, where, as a reader, I can decide which ending suits my interpretation of the read best.

The Harry Potter Tag

I have seen this Tag floating around the internet a couple of times in the past few days, and although I have not technically been tagged by anyone, I have decided to tag myself and just give it a go anyways! I love me some Harry Potter, so I thought this was just made for me! I haven’t done that many tags in a while, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon!

Although I have seen this tag somewhere else too, the I actually got this one from Jenn @ A Page of Jenniely. I tag Emma @ The Terror of Knowing and Jessica @ Ever the Crafter, and absolutely anyone and everyone who would like to take part and do it too! Continue reading
