The Fellowship of the Ring Book Tag [Original]

Welcome to the first post in my themed series of Saturday posts this month – September Tolkien Reading Month! As you may know (or may not, if you’re new here), The Lord of the Rings is my favourite series of all time and that I’m a huge fan of Tolkien’s works. I haven’t been the best at reading all of his available books, but I want to try and fix that soon. This month I’m reading The Silmarillion. For updates on my reading progress or if you want to join me, please follow me on my Twitter or Instagram and DM if you’re interested! As much fun as it is (at least for me) to deconstruct Tolkien’s works and analyse them in depth, today I thought I’d keep things a little light and do a book tag. The ones that already exist didn’t quite suit what I had in mind, so I went ahead and created my own. I don’t think it’ll become a phenomenon like the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag but I’m very interested in others’ answers.

Me in Book Characters Tag

I was tagged by Sahitya @ My World of Books for this tag in early June but I’m just getting to it. I know it’s quite late but I’m very bad at keeping up with tags! It’s just that when I’m tagged I would’ve already had planned some other posts for the rest of the month (I sound more organized than I really am at this point) and I just can’t fit it in then, so I end up putting it off to a point where I just forget about it. I also have no idea who I would tag in turn, which makes me shy away from them. Now that I finally remembered and fit this tag in my blogging schedule, let’s talk about all the characters I’ve found relatable over the years.

Top Ten Tuesday: Unforgettable Bookish Memories Book Tag

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for July 24th, 2018 is: Books That Are Linked to Specific Memories/Moments In Your Life. I’d been tagged by Etinosa to do the ‘Unforgettable Bookish Memories’ tag way back in May, but I have only found the time to get to it now. Tags are really fun to do for me personally, so I’m always looking for a chance to include them without making it seem like too much. I was so stoked that this week’s TTT topic matched perfectly with the book tag that I couldn’t resist pairing them up. The tag has 9 questions which is why I’m adding an extra one to make it a proper 10.

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books of 2018 (So Far) + Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for July 10th, 2018 is: Best Books I’ve Read In 2018 (So Far). I decided to combine it with a tag today because I didn’t have a lot to say about my favourites other than I hope that everyone reads it and loves it as well because they’re SO GOOD! I had initially planned to do the Mid-Year Book Freak Out tag on a Saturday post but it just wouldn’t fit in the timeline for this month. Two things to note: nobody actually tagged me to do it (at least not to my knowledge) and although I’ve rated many more than 10 books 5 stars already this year, I wanted to feature some lesser-known but excellent stories so that they get more hype.

Reader Confessions Tag

It seems like the people of the book blogosphere have been noticing my existence off-late. I have been tagged by the lovely Kate from The Backwards Bookshelf for this tag. I would strongly encourage you to check out her blog because she’s an amazing blogger from Philippines who reads and reviews a lot of diverse and #ownvoices books. This tag features a bunch of questions where I reveal shocking truths about my bookish life and then tag my friends so I can get them to confess too. Since I’m an impatient person every time someone mentions the word ‘secrets’ around me, I’m going to spare you the wait and get right to it!

Bookish Academy Awards Tag + My Nominations for the Book Blogger Awards

I’m posting on a unusual day, but please bear with me because I was sick yesterday and didn’t schedule this post ahead of time. 10 points from Ravenclaw for failing to plan ahead for sure! Today I’m bringing you a fun post that would have been lovely around the end of February, but I couldn’t get around to it until now. In all fairness though, Charvi from Not Just Fiction tagged me only in the middle of April, so I’m not fully to be blamed here. This was originally created by the Booktuber Bookadoodles and the way it works is that we take the awards for the popular Oscar categories but we get to pick books as winners! Sounds interesting? Then let’s just dive right in!

Intimidating TBR Pile Tag

Every once in a while I like to introduce a little fun into my blog posts with a book tag. There are so many of them that have interesting questions that I’m not sure when I’ll get through them all. For those of you who are new here, TBR stands for ‘to be read’ and is a generic term used by bookworms to talk about the enormous pile (physical or virtual) on their bookshelves that is waiting to be devoured. This tag was created by a YouTuber whose channel no longer exists, unfortunately. I didn’t get tagged by anyone to do this, but found that it fit my state of mind perfectly.

Lately, I’ve been in a reading slump. I’m yet to start a new book in over two weeks, which is starting to freak me out because I’m such a consistent reader. The reason for this is lesser time, lesser energy and the fact that the books I want to pick up are either too intimidating for me or I just don’t feel like getting into at the moment. I’m hoping this tag will give me the push I need to get back into reading again. With that little introduction out of the way, let’s get to the questions.
