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
