Today’s post is a bit of a fun one as I complete the ‘My Life in Books Tag’ which I was tagged in by Ellie @ Eleanorsophiewrites . So sit back and enjoy some bookish nonsense!
Find a book for each of your Initials:
Let me just tell you – this is very tricky when you have an obscure Welsh name and hardly any books begin with ‘E’ ‘O’ or ‘N’
B – Bone China by Laura Purcell
R – Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
O – The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
N – Noonday by Pat Barker
W – Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
E – The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (Not sure to what extent this qualifies for ‘E’ but there’s one there!)
N – No Night is too Long by Barbara Vine
Count your age along your bookshelf:
‘The Little Stranger’ by Sarah Waters – The only Sarah Waters’ novel I haven’t read … I believe.
Pick a book set in your City/Country
I’ve picked The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer as it was the closest I could find to my village.
Pick a book that has your favourite colour on it
I’m not sure I have a favourite colour by the cover of The Corset by Laura Purcell has to be one of my favourites. Laura Purcell is – by the way – the absolute QUEEN of Victorian Historical Fictions, especially those featuring Ghosts and you should go read her complete collection right now.
Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
Probably The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. It is one of the first books I studied and fell absolutely in love with it as both a book and a work of literature.
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
If I think of the books I have read recently, probably We Cast a Shadow by Maurice Carlos Ruffin. Although I found the discussion interesting and educating, the writing style was so stagnated that I wanted to literally anything else but read.
Which Book On Your TBR Pile Will Give You The Most Achievement When You Finish It?
Probably The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. I listened to this on audiobook when it first came out and fell in love with it. I’ve now bought the paperback and cannot wait to dive back in, though the size is quite intimidating. When I do return though, I know it will be instantly satisfying.
