The 3 bookish things tag (me rambling about books, authors and other stuff bibliophiles talk about)

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I really wanted to write something bookish today but had no idea what to write about, so I stumbled across this amazing tag by one of the most legendary books bloggers/ authors, @paperfury (aka C.G Drews) Its called the 3 bookish things tag, and basically its a tag where you write three bookish answers to a bunch of different bookish questions!

Speaking of bookishness (is that even a word? XD) I really have missed being a book blogger, as much as I love making lifestyle posts I think I’m going to go back to being a book blogger! The book community is so fun and its a lot more enjoyable for me, I feel happier when I write bookish posts and I don’t feel like I’m comparing myself to others as much. What do you guys prefer to see on my blog?

Anyways, enough of my rambling let’s start the tag!

3 Favorite Authors

This is honestly a really hard question. There are so many amazing authors and I find new ones every day, but I guess my 3 all-time favorites are;

Marissa Meyer: Because the worlds and the characters she crafts are amazing. also, the lunar chronicles are just too amazing

Leigh Burdugo: I have one word for you (actually three words) SIX OF CROWS! I also love how all of her books have diverse characters! Its really hard to find interesting books that represent lots of different races, and Leigh nails that.

Marie Lu: because WARCROSS IS AMAZINGLY AWESOME (wildcard kind of let me down though)

3 Weirdest things used as a Bookmark

To be honest I don’t use bookmarks often because I usually read a book in one stand, meaning I spend the whole day reading a book which probably is very unhealthy but sometimes it’s worth it! (I read the whole To all the boys I loved before series in like three hours with no breaks)

Marker/pen/paper: I use these the most because I always have one on me.

Another book: surprisingly it works pretty well!

Sock: I have no comment XD

3 Series Binged

Lunar Chronicles: When I found out about this series, almost all the books were out already, so it was super easy to binge read. This series is honestly so amazing.

Shadow and Bone: These books surprisingly took longer to read than The Lunar chronicles, despite the books were a bit shorter.

To all the Boys I loved before: Like I mentioned before I read all the three books in less than 4 hours. The series is such a page-turner and probably one of the first ya “Romance” Series I actually finished.

3 Characters YOU LOVE

So I don’t know if she meant, characters you ship yourself with or characters you love (like platonically) SO I’m just gonna list both.

Carswell Thorne-The Lunar Chronicles: I’m sure we all are in love with him, let me just say that.

Kaz Brekker- Six of Crows: Again, who isn’t in love with him

Anne Shirley-Anne of Green Gables: Anne has always been one of my favorite characters! She is clever, fun and so imaginative. I can relate to her so much.


3 Unpopular Bookish Opinions

 Before I share these I just want to beg you to please not come and kill me. I am not trying to offend anyone, these are just my thoughts.

Harry Potter seems overrated: I feel like almost every bookish person loves this series and I personally don’t get the huge appeal. (please don’t hurt me)

I feel like POC aren’t represented a lot: Now I know there are plenty of great books with POC, but I feel like the types of genres I like to read don’t represent them enough. Or like the only books with them in it that get so popular are the books like “The Hate You Give.” I have a hard time finding cute, fluffy ya books that feature POC, that don’t overly focus on race.

Too much cursing in books is kind of annoying: I find it really annoying when I’m reading a book and the characters curse/ cuss so much. For some characters, Its a part of their voice, or their talking style, and I guess that’s okay. But its really annoying when there are 5 cuss words on each page. Is that really how normal teens talk all the time?

3 Favorite Book Covers

  1. I’m so glad someone finally agrees with me! It’s really annoying and it makes words that I usually wouldn’t say get stuck in my head!
    I am also glad you agree about the hp! Everyone always says your not a true bookworm if you don’t like it. XD💛💛

  2. Yes! Anne Shirley is one of my favorite characters! And yes I hate it when books have too much cussing! I tried to read h2o a while back but I just couldn’t! Instead of the characters swearing they put a little butterfly symbol to show where the characters cursed during the story! It was ridiculous. There were so many butterflies on every page. I ended up having to put it down! So frustrating because the book has a really cool concept!! Great post 💜💜

  3. ava, i said this before but i think it’s okay not to limit yourself to only one blogging niche. i know a lot of people suggest that, but if you’re happy making both lifestyle and bookish related posts, then go for it! i love reading both types of posts and i definitely like to have a break from the bookish content myself, so do not worry much about it.
    i really love this tag and i’ll probably consider answering it myself; it was so much fun! as for series binged, i also binge-read to all the boys for the second time and it was amazing but also kind of irresponsible, lol. basically, i had this huge test on saturday but i just wanted to read and i ended up procrastinating studying (and paying attention on class) just so i could re-read these books one after the other. it wasn’t a really smart choice, but this story is so addictive, it’s impossible to put it down!
    i also think it’s very true that POC are not represented enough as for books that are just cute & fluffy and do not focus a lot on race. i recently read opposite of always, by justin a. reynolds and i was really happy to encounter a book that featured mostly black/POC characters and yet race was not a big deal at all; instead, the book just focused on the relationships & friendships, like many other contemporaries with white characters. i’d highly recommend checking it out!

  4. you are literally the sweetest person ever! I will take your advice and not worry about sticking to one niche, because whenever i do that I end up stressing out over writing posts!
    Yes! TATBILB is veryyy addicting, I was so happy I got all the books at once because it was sooo hard to put down! I also have a huge issue with procrastiation so whenever I have tests or certian tasks with due dates, I try to not get new books or I hide the books that I was planning on reading or else I would just read all day lol
    yes yes and YES
    I have had Opposite of Always on my tbr for too long! I hope I get around to reading it soon. It looks really cute and I think I would really enjoy it!
    I really hope Authors start writing more books similar to that! As a black girl its really hard to find books that don’t focus on race with characters that look like me and act similar to me, so when I see books like that it makes me super duper happy!
    Thank you soo much for commenting btw! You are honestly so sweet and fun to talk to!
