Stay at Home Book Tag

Book tag_ (1)

Since we’re all stuck in quarantine due to Reasons™, I thought it would be fun to try this quarantine-themed book tag. This tag was created by Princess of Paperback, but I found it on The Naughty Librarian’s channel. I urge you to check out their answers after you finish reading my post!


  1. Laying in Bed: A book you could/have read in a day
Fairest by Marissa Meyer

91c8ImOO0dL

I read this novella the first time I read The Lunar Chronicles and I read it in one sitting. It was really interesting learning Levana’s backstory.


  1. Snacking: A guilty pleasure book
The Merciless by Danielle Vega

merciless

I’m at a point in my life where I don’t really believe in guilty pleasures. I’m an adult— I’ll like what I like, damn what anyone else thinks. This series is the closest I have, as it’s fairly trashy B-movie horror. I totally get the criticisms, but I love this series anyway.


  1. Netflix: A series you want to start
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Annotation 2020-05-12 145359

I actually did a Top 5 Tuesday post about this recently, but this time I’m picking a series I didn’t put on my list. Lately I’ve been in the mood for F/F YA fantasy, so I figure now’s the time to give this series a shot.


  1. Deep Clean: A book that’s been on your TBR for ages
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

9781582346038_p0_v6_s1200x630

In my defense, it’s very thick and dense and intimidating. I’m sure I’ll love it. I just have to work up the nerve to read it.


  1. Animal Crossing: A book you recently bought because of hype
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

91oX1d8ogSL

I should’ve listened to myself on this Book Blogger Hop post, but I let FOMO get to me. I actually DNF’d this book, but forgot to include it on my April wrap-up. You’ll hear more of my thoughts on this month’s wrap-up, but I basically didn’t like it for all the reasons I knew I wouldn’t. I played myself, but at least I was able to return it to the store.


  1. Productivity: A book you learned from or that had an impact on you
The Things They Carried by Time O’Brien

81IFvIcsZNL

This book was assigned reading in one of the creative writing classes I took in college. It really taught me a lot about the concept of objective truth vs. story truth. Despite being a memoir about O’Brien’s time as a soldier in the Vietnam War, I learned more about writing than anything else.


  1. Facetime: A book you were gifted
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab (ARC)

50623864

Do ARCs count as gifts? I mean, I know we get them in exchange for a review but still. People don’t usually gift me books because I buy so many for myself. So… I say this counts. I’m so excited to get into it. It’s one of my most anticipated books of the year.


  1. Self-Care: One thing you’ve done recently to look after yourself
Family Bonding

QnQZHzZyRKep._UX900_TTW__

My family and I have been having so many game nights lately. It’s really brought us closer and helped us all get through this quarantine feeling not so alone.


  1. Bonus: A book coming out soon
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

The_Ballad_of_Songbirds_and_Snakes_(Suzanne_Collins)

The Hunger Games prequel comes out a week from tomorrow. I’m nervous, but excited.


I tag Gerry of The Book Nook UK and Isabelle of Nine Tale Vixen!
