Well hello midsummer, good to see you! The end of June means it’s time to look back at this year’s reading and see how 2021 is shaping up – and this year’s check in will be harder than ever, because it’s been quite a year of books already. Let’s take a look…
I enjoy a fun book tag, and when I saw Tanja’s Bookish Memory Check over at Where Stories Lie, I knew I wanted to have a go. I like to think my TBR and my shelves are fairly curated, so I should know what all these books are about, right? Yes, well, let’s find out!
I became aware of this tag when Mayri tackled it last autumn on BookForager. Mayri got it from Beatrice at Dreamlands Book Blog, but it started out over on BookTube long enough ago that the original vlogger no longer has a public channel. Old book tags never die, they just find new readers to get excited about them.
I’m not much of a one for New Year’s resolutions, so I’m taking a week out from Top Ten Tuesday to tackle a book tag that recently tickled my fancy. I found this via The Captain and Laura Tisdall, but it originated (as far as I can tell) with Adam at Roof Beam Reader in 2010 (a fine vintage tag, right here).
I was determined to catch up on reviews, but it’s much too hard at the moment so I’m doing a review tag instead. The 5 Star Books In 5 Words tag (originally created by Matthew Sciarappa) has been a huge fave this Wyrd and Wonder, so about time I joined in, right?
I got this perfectly Wyrd and Wonder-shaped tag from Dragons and Zombies, who got it from the Little Book Owl – but they weren’t sure where it originated. I applied my well-honed spy skills and it seems we can thank Toast Dragon Fantasy over on Booktube. Day 2 of Wyrd and Wonder and I’m thanking a dragon already. Perfect.
I’ve seen a couple of you take this tag recently and it looks like fun, so I’m jumping on the bandwagon. This tag was created by Tiffany of About To Read over on BookTube back in the day, but it’s still going strong! Reader Problems – some things never change…
Annemieke is on a roll this year! First she created an epic genre reading challenge and for SciFiMonth she has created the SF TV Shows Book Tag. I’ve only seen two of these shows, but I’ve read a lot of books… I can do this, right? Let’s find out…
Lauren at Always Me brought the 5 Star Books In 5 Words tag (originally created by Matthew Sciarappa) to #SciFiMonth and damn straight I can’t resist it.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is asking about our summer TBR, but I talked about my 20 Books of Summer a couple of weeks ago so I think it’s time for a tag challenge!
