The Spring Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today felt like a good day for a tag. I was recently tagged in the Spring Book Tag and, since it’s rather seasonal, I wanted to jump on it before I forget! Which I am wont to do at any moment in time, haha. This is a tag that celebrates one of my favorite seasons, as well, so I kinda have to do it, right? Right!

Thank you to the wonderful Ashlee @ Books Are 42 for tagging me. Not only does she have an awesome blog name, but incredible blog content, as well! I highly suggest checking her out if you haven’t already ❤ I, unfortunately, can’t seem to find who created this tag but, if you know, please let me know as well so I can give credit where credit is due.

Now, let’s get to the tag!


1. What’s on your Spring TBR list?

I’m attempting to stay on top of my ARCs, so my Spring TBR will be prioritizing Spring releases! Three of the top ones I want to get to are:

  • The Carnival of Ash by Tom Beckerlegge
  • The Merciless Ones by Namina Forna
  • Juniper & Thorn by Ava Reid

I’m so excited to read all of these! Cross your fingers that I actually manage to fit them all in 😅

2. If someone asked you for a spring release recommendation, what would it be?

Well, besides the ones I mentioned above, my most anticipated read of 2022 is Fevered Star by Rebecca Roanhorse. So of course that’s going to be my recommendation! I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for this sequel since finishing Black Sun and I need it in my grabby, little hands. Thankfully, it just came out yesterday, so I am this much closer to owning it and finally continuing the story!

3. Which two books coming out before summer are you eagerly awaiting?

Two books I’m so excited to read are The Marvellers by Dhonielle Clayton and Hide by Kiersten White. As you might be able to tell by the covers, we have very different vibes going on here. One features a magical school and the other features a very deadly game of Hide & Seek. Both sound like books I’m really going to love!

Meet the Book Blogger Tag

Hello, reader!

I’m doing another tag today and one I think is kind of perfect for the beginning of a new year. It’s the Meet the Book Blogger Tag! I was tagged by the wonderful Mani @ Mani’s Book Corner. You all should definitely go check out her blog because it’s fantastic! I’m very grateful for the tag though, once again, I must apologize for taking forever to do it 😅 One day, I’ll be on top of my tag game… one day.

Alright, let’s jump in!


The Rules:

  • Nominated bloggers can nominate ten other bloggers.
  • Use the same questions from the tag.
  • Tag the original creator (Bibliomavens) and the blogger who tagged you

The Questions:

Who is your all-time favourite book character?

Oof, we’re kicking off with a tough one, huh? There are so many characters that I adore from a lot of different books, it’s hard to pick one that is my all-time favorite! It’s like picking a favorite pet! My current favorite would probably be Tarisai from the Raybearer duology by Jordan Ifueko. She’s an incredible main character and it is a pleasure watching her grow throughout the series. And I think it would be fun to hang out with her! I’m a little sad that there won’t be more books in this series (as of right now) because I’d love to see more of Tarisai’s life.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which book would you take with you? (Survival books do not count)

Okay, for once I’m not going to cheat on this question and make up an omnibus for a series I love that doesn’t exist 😂 So I’ll pick a book that has would have high readability for me and is a standalone. I’m going with The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. I just know that every time I read it, I would find something new to love. Thinking about this now, I kind of want to re-read it!

What’s your most unpopular book opinion?

I honestly don’t think I have any really unpopular book opinions. Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t like DNFing books? I mean, I’m perfectly fine with other people DNFing, I actually champion it! Life is too short and all that. But when it comes to my reading, I feel like I have to finish everything I start, even when I’m not particularly enjoying it. I mean, that’s the only reason I ever finished the dumpster fire that is The Scarlet Letter. Which maybe isn’t such a great thing…

What’s your weirdest bookish habit?

Besides pushing myself to read a book I’m hating? Probably the fact that I can’t do other things that require any kind of thought when I’m listening to an audiobook. Like… any thought. I can’t even play a mindless game on my phone or color! If I do, I invariably stop paying attention and lose track of what’s going on in the story. Which means I have to rewind until I find something that sounds vaguely familiar, lol. The only time it isn’t an issue is when I’m driving, which makes no sense as driving requires all my attention! My brain, she is a complicated beast.
