Ultimate Harry Potter Tag

rxPisua.jpg

This may just be my favorite tag yet, so thank you Rachel at pace, amore, libri for tagging me! Harry Potter is my favorite book series in the universe and it’s had a huge part in making me the person I am today. It’s brought me so much joy. Happy 20th anniversary, Harry ❤

GENERAL

1. Favourite book?

Prisoner of Azkaban or Deathly Hallows. Azkaban probably wins by a hair, but for more sentimental reasons. That book is just the definition of a comfort read for me. I mean, all of them are, but. Azkaban.

2. Least favourite book?

Ahhh probably Sorcerer’s Stone. I still love it, I just like the rest more. I’ve probably read Sorcerer’s Stone the most out of all of them, though (in many aborted rereads of the series). Continue reading

The Unique Blogger Award

Thank you Rachel at pace, amore, libri for nominating me for the Unique Blogger Award! I definitely recommend following her blog, especially if you like classics, mysteries and historical fiction!

The Rules

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them 3 questions.

1. Who’s your favorite actor/actress and what’s your favorite performance that they’ve ever done?  It can be something you’ve seen on stage, or in a film/television show/etc.

Okay, I need to explain myself. I’m terrible at watching things. When I was a kid and teen I watched TV 24/7, but then I just…never really made the transition to loving adult television/movies? I don’t know, I rarely go to the movies and hardly watch TV shows these days. I’ll spend days and days reading a 900 page book, but its 2 hour movie adaptation? Nah. What is my problem? I don’t know!

Rapid Fire Book Tag

Thank you Hadeer at Hadeer Writes for tagging me to do this tag!! This one was fun- usually I spend too much time on my answers for tags so I tried to really stick to the “rapid fire” spirit of this one and just go with my gut answers. I really need to overthink less often.


Question 1: E-books or Physical Books?

Physical! I love ebooks when I’m traveling though.

Question 2: Paperbacks or Hardbacks?

Hmmm this is tricky, but I think overall I’m going to go with paperbacks, even though hardcovers can be so pretty. Paperbacks are just easier to read and I enjoy the feel of them more.

Thanks to Shanah at Bionic Book Worm for tagging me! I’ve fallen behind on tags, but this one looked like a lot of fun and I had the time, so I couldn’t resist doing it right away!


1 – THE BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017

29044

This is hard!!! I’m tempted to name several, but I’m going to force myself to go with one, and that’s The Secret History. It was the very first book I read this year, and I did not mean to set the bar for every other book to come in 2017 but I guess I did. I ADORE this book. It excels in every category for me: writing, character, plot, general atmosphere of beauty and tragedy. It’s awful and fantastic and I’ll love it forever.
