My Life in Books Tag

I wanted to do some more book tags, so I googled ‘Book Tags’ and found this one on DreamlandBookBlog. It’s called the My Life in Book Tag, but I don’t know who originally created it.

1. Find a book for each of your initials

N – Night Film by Marisha Pessl
L – Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers
P – Panic by Lauren Oliver

2. Count your age along your bookshelf, what book is it?

If I do it counting my TBR shelf along, it’s Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. If I skip the TBR, it’s Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

3. Pick a book set in your city/country

Well, my city is going to be a difficult one, cuz no exciting book ever takes place here, but I can name both The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Just One Year by Gayle Forman which both take place in the Netherlands (aka Amsterdam) for a part.

4. Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to

I am going to pick two books, representing a fictional world and an actual country I’d love to go to. For the first one, I am picking Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien because I would love to go to Middle Earth. As for an actual country, I am going to pick the Tomorrow Series by John Marsden, because I still want to go to Australia and New Zealand.

5. Pick a book that’s your favourite colour:

My favourite colours are green and purple, so for green, I’ve chosen Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and purple is Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton, two books I also enjoyed very much, luckily!

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

Well, the obvious answer would be Harry Potter, of course, but this time I am choosing The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. This book not only tells a great story but has brought forward three good movies (in my opinion) which were the reason HobbitCon came to be. Through that convention, I have met so many of my current friends, and I am so grateful for both Tolkien to write this book and Peter Jackson to make it into a movie series.

7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

The latest book I DNF-ed because I just couldn’t get through it was A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. There was a scene somewhere in the beginning that made me very uncomfortable, and for some reason, I just couldn’t get into the book anymore. I have since gotten rid of both this book and the first in the series, and while I will continue her other series, I won’t be continuing the ACOTAR series.

8. Which book on your TBR will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

There is only one answer for this, and that is The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. Wow this tag sure is Tolkien filled, isn’t it? I have tried to read this book at least three times before and I just could not get through it. I even tried an audiobook, but I didn’t like the narrator that much, so I quit that as well. Still, I am determined to finish this book, because I want to know what everyone is talking about.

And that’s the end of this book tag, I really liked this one! If you’ve done this tag too, let me know and I’ll check out your post! You’re supposed to actually tag people, but I hardly ever do that. If you want to do this, consider yourself tagged by me!

Is there anywhere in the world you would love to visit?
