Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

Hello there everyone!!

Beauty and the Beast has been probably my favourite Disney movie ever. Belle is the best princess in my opinion. She is just so cool! She is idependent and smart, she reads, shes badass…. the list could go on forever, she is just my favourite!!

So when I saw this book tag I was like YUP I need to do this because it just feels so right.

Also – I LOVED the Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson. That is fabulous. Emma Watson is the QUEEN. She can do no wrong in my books.

I found this tag on World Unlike Our Own‘s blog. This tag was created by Kristy @ Kristy and the Cat Read.


Tale as Old as Time: A Popular Theme, Trope, or Setting You Will Never Get Bored of Reading

I have a few!

I love reading anything to do with books. So like, set in a library or bookshop. Or something to do with books.

I also love the friends to lovers trope in romance/chick-lit books!


Belle: A Book You Bought for Its Beautiful Cover That’s Just as Beautiful on the Inside Too

The Sound of Stars by Alechia Dow

This is such a beautiful cover!! I was in love the second I saw it. Turns out the book was amazing as well!!

Gaston: A Book Everyone Loves That You Don’t

So, I don’t think that EVERYONE loves this one but it is popular and I just didn’t totally love it…… Wilder Girls by Rory Power.

This book was okay for me but didn’t live up to the hype.


Lefou: A Loyal Sidekick You Can’t Help But Love More Than Their Counterpart

Jamie from the Charlotte Holmes series!!

He is such a cute character and is SO loyal its honestly just dumb at some point haha. Charlotte is a great character but she can be a little too much at times and Jamie really just was the best “side kick”


Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiere, and Cogsworth: A Book That Helped You Through a Difficult Time or Taught You Something Valuable

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle

This book made me open my eyes and really look at the relationships I have in the life. It made me reconsider what I was focusing on as important events and important people. This book was beautiful and heartbreaking. If nothing else it taught me to appreciate your true friends and to not waste peoples time if you do not share the same feelings as they do!! (Which seems obvious but sometimes you need that reminder)

I think that Mrs. Potts would approve of this 😂


Something There: A Book or Series You Weren’t Into at First
But Picked Up Towards the End

The Leveller by Julia Durango

I actually just read this one and it started off slow and I was a little unsure based on the style of writing but then I really enjoyed it!


Be Our Guest: A Fictional Character You’d Love to Have Over for Dinner

Hmmm.. this is tough because thre are SO MANY great characters that would be super fun to have for dinner. So as per usual I will just give multiple answers LOL

Based on pure attractiveness – Four from Divergent 🔥

Based on interest – Stevie from Truly Devious 🔎

Based on love for books – Odile from The Paris Library 📚


Do you love Beauty and the Beast? If not, what is your fav Disney movie?

What Cats Do Book Tag

Hey everyone!

I’m back with another book tag! I feel like its actually been awhile since I’ve done a book tag and that makes me sad because I love them! When I saw this one I knew I had to do it because I just love cats so much. I found this tag at Smellfoy Can Read‘ s blog 😊

PURR – As cats do this when they’re happy or relaxed, what is the book that makes you happiest or relaxed?

Im not sure I have a book that makes me “happy or relaxed” in the sense that I would go back and reread a book to feel happy or relaxed. Many books have made me feel happy though. Ill list a few:

  • The Lantern’s Ember by Colleen Houck
  • A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro (the whole series really)
  • Josh and Hazels Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
  • Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane

SLEEP – What is a book that put you to sleep or was just boring?

Again, I have a few of these hahaha. I will list the 2 most recent books that just were not interesting to me and made me feel super bored!

  • The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass by Adan Jerreat-Poole
  • The Witch of Little Italy by Suzanne Palmieri

TWITCH WHILE DREAMING – Have you ever dreamt of a book you read?

I honestly don’t think I’ve ever dreamed about a book? However, I will say that I had some scary dreams after reading The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware!


SEEMS TO PLAY NICE UNTIL THE CLAWS ARE OUT – Which book had the biggest plot twist(s)?

So many books have so many amazing plot twists! The one that sticks out to me for this one is Verity by Colleen Hoover! Crazy plot twist in this one.


CUDDLES – Which book character would you give a hug to?

The most recent character I would give a hug to would be Eva from ‘The Book of Lost Names’ because her story was so sad and I just feel like that girl deserves a big hug.


CAT BREEDS – What are your favorite books?

This is tough!! I feel like I have a book or two that I will always say are my “favs” but honestly I have new favourites all the time. This is going to be a list again!!

  • Divergent by Veronica Roth (my first fav book ever)
  • A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro (the whole series is fab!!)
  • Terraformer by Colleen Houck ( a recent fav)
  • The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles (not released yet but you must read it when it comes out next year!)
  • Josh and Hazels Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren (SO CUTE)

GETTING THE CAT – How did you find your favorite book(s)?

Most of them I came across either on Netgalley or online here on the blog or IG. Divergent I came across in the bookstore when it first came out and was plastered everywhere haha it was hard to miss.

Usually I come across books from other bloggers or just on Goodreads when I’m searching for new things to read! (or sometimes something catches my eye at the bookstore when I am browsing)


THE VET’S OFFICE – Your least favorite book:

Ive had a few books I wasnt a fan of. The ones I mentioned above that put me to sleep… yeah those are on that list! I will add a couple others that I just didnt like. I dont think I have just 1 that is my least fav… just a general list of books I wasnt a fan of.

  • Boy Robot by Simon Curtis
  • The Dark Continent by Scott Reardon
  • The Grave Keepers by Elizabeth Byrn (this one wasn’t too bad, just let me down a little)

BEING IN PLACES THEY SHOULDN’T – Least favorite cliché:

Probably in romance stories when the guy is really rude and mean but then “changes” and falls in love with the girl he was actually really horrible to 🤷‍♀️


THE GOOD OLD CARDBOARD BOX – Most underrated book series?

Let me go back to one of my fav series…… The Charlotte Holmes series by Brittany Cavallaro!

Also another one I think worth mentioning is The Agency series by Y.S. Lee!

Maybe another one to add as well…. The Asylum series by Madeline Roux (not sure if it is underrated or if I was just late to the party)


Hope you all enjoyed my cat themed book tag today! Join in if you’d like! Thanks for stopping by 😊

Books I Want to Read But Don’t Want To Read – Book Tag

Hello there everyone!!

I hope life is treating you well and you are healthy during this time! I am finding its harder and harder to be in good spirits. While I am lucky to have my health and still be working, it sure is draining and honestly depressing to watch the world right now. However, I find great happiness in my blog and in this community that keeps me motivated!

Today I am doing a fun book tag that I found over at Reading with Jessica! This was a great book tag to do and opened my eyes to so many books I have not read and may or may not actually want to read haha! Check out my answers!

A Book You Feel You Need To Read Because Everyone Talks About It

My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

I feel like I see this book at least once or twice a day on bookstagram! I do find the idea of the book interesting but it is not the typical type of book I read. I find myself interested in reading it but also not really 🤷‍♀️ It seems popular though and many people are reading it!

44890081. sy475

A Book That’s Really Long

Harry Potter series as a whole

I really do want to get to this series. I have never read any of the Harry Potter books and it is super overdue. I also think its been too long? Like is it okay if I read them now? Its kind of embarrassing!!!

The series is quite long and the books are long as well which puts me off a little bit! But who knows? Maybe 2020 is the year I do this!

A Book You’ve Owned/Had on Your TBR For Too Long

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I have had this book on my goodreads TBR since I started my goodreads account in early 2019. It hasn’t been THAT long per say, but it has been there for quite some time. I do want to read this but I recently found out its part of a series and I don’t know if I want to commit to that haha

A Book That Is ‘Required’ Reading

Classics

I feel that so many people talk about how they read classics and I think I need to read some too with all this talk of them. However I am mixed on it because many are super long and honestly Im not sure if I would even like them? I went ahead and ordered 2 “classics” off of bookoutlet to give it a try.

  • Frankenstein
  • Treasure Island


A Book That Intimidates You

Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky

I have wanted to read this one since it came out and I don’t know, I just haven’t picked it up because it seems scary LOL. I am intimidated by how spooky it may be.

43522576

A Book That You Think Might Be Slow

Vanessa Yu’s Magical Paris Tea Shop by by Roselle Lim

I’m unsure about this book! It looks super cute and I want to read it. However, it seems like it could be maybe a little boring or not that entertaining. I’m not sure! It could also be great. I will be reading this one at some point, I’m hoping I enjoy it!! Plus the cover is cute 😊

A Book You Need To Be In The Right Mood For

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

I find that I need to be in the mood for thrillers. They take a lot out of me as well so I need to be ready and prepared for them. I try to limit the thrillers I read to ones I’m super interested in because while I do like them, I don’t like being creeped out and feeling nervous/scared.

A Book You’re Unsure If You Will Like

Frankly In Love by David Yoon

I have had this book on my shelf for months now. You guys, I wanted to read this one when I bought it but now I’m questioning myself!! Do I really want to read it if it has been on my shelf for months and I have been saying “Ill read it” but I never get to it and pick other books and BUY more books?!?! I’m unsure of how I feel about this book now.

39847584

That is all for today folks! Thanks for stopping by and joining me for another super fun book tag. I love these things!!

If you want to join in, I tag you 😊

Any books on this list that you have read? Or maybe been meaning to read but haven’t, like me? Chat with me in the comments!!

Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Book Tag

Hello there all my bookish peeps!

So happy to be back with a super fun book tag AND even more fun that it is a “scavenger hunt” since its Easter weekend! I don’t know about you, but I loved waking up early to see what the crazy bunny left around my home. I was lucky enough to have parents that went to a lot of trouble to hide things everywhere (to the point that they have to take note of where things were for when I inevitably did not find them 😂).

Funny Easter Memes and Images for Sharing - Digital Mom Blog

I do miss the fun aspect of Easter. I mean, I still get the chocolate…. I just miss out on the hunt. Its somehow less fun when you know where you got the chocolate from and picked it out yourself…. STILL DELICIOUS but less fun. Oh well, I will have to find fun in something else. Too bad I don’t find cooking a large dinner for my family fun LOL.

FM104 - Waking up on Easter Sunday & looking forward to... | Facebook

Maybe you guys can share what you do for Easter and what you find fun about it! Give me some ideas so I can stop reminiscing of the good old days of Easter egg hunts 🤷‍♀️

Currently Reading Book Tag

Hey bookish friends!!

I saw this tag on Reading With Jessica‘s blog 🙂 So fun!! Go check out her answers as well!!


How many books do you usually read at once?

I have been reading 2 books at a time! Usually 1 is an ebook that I read on my kobo and one is a physical book!

Recently though I have started reading a 3rd book on my phone when I am waiting somewhere or have random down time! So far, so good!

How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?

I usually alternate between the books day to day. So, one day Ill focus on the ebook and the next Ill focus on the physical books. I will switch back and forth until they are done. Sometimes if I’m super into the book though Ill read that one and put the other to the side for a couple days!

Do you ever switch bookmarks partway through a book?

No hahahah I have never done this?? Do people do this??

Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?

Just all over the place 😂

On the couch, the windowsill, the computer desk, the kitchen table, the bed, in my nightstand, on the floor…. really they just get put down anywhere and left there until I pick them up again!!

What time of day do you read the most?

Mostly night time! Since I’m at work all day I don’t have time during the day to read very much. If I have the day off or on the weekend I will read during the day though!

How long do you typically read in one session?

Probably like an hour to 2 hours!

Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket off?

Noooo, I like never ever take the dust jacket off!

What position do you mainly use to read?

I like to curl up on the couch in my comfy little corner spot with blankets and cozy pillows!

Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?

Very rarely! Only recently have I started to read on my phone so, I guess I technically take my current read with me! But I never take the physical book with me. Too much to carry and normally I don’t have time on my outing to read!

How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?

I try to update it everyday but sometimes I forget!

What book(s) are you currently reading?

I am currently erading 3 books:

  • Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating (on my phone)
  • The Dark Continent (on my Kobo)
  • Truly Devious (physical book)

I tag you!! Anyone can join in on this one 🙂 I’d love to see your answers!!

The Netflix Book Tag

Hey friends 🙂

I am here with another super fun book tag that I just decided to do without being tagged!! Love everyone’s responses to this one and who doesn’t watch Netflix?!?! This is just the perfect tag I think! So here I go, check out my answers and let me know if you agree with any of them in the comments 🙂

I came across this tag on Reader Gal’s blog!!


1. Recently watched– The last book you finished

I recently finished 2 books!

  • The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune
  • The Lanterns Ember by Colleen Houck

2. Top Picks– A book/ books that have been recommended to you based on books you have previously read.

Goodreads recommended that I read Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson based on some books I read. So I ordered the first 2 of the series (since the 3rd was no out yet) and have just started reading it!! So far so good!!

3. Recently added- The Last book you bought.

Hmmmm…. I don’t remember the last book I bought. However, the last book I added to my shelf was from a giveaway! So that on was The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert!

4. Popular on Netflix- Books that everyone knows about ( 2 you’ve read and 2 you have no interest in reading)

2 popular books I have read:

  • The Grace Year by Kim Liggett
  • In Five Years by Rebecca Serle

I loved both of these books!! So worth the read in my opinion 🙂 I have written reviews on both of these ones, so check them out if you want!!

2 popular books I have not read and have no interest in reading:

  • The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Dare
  • Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano

5. Comedies- A funny book.

I don’t tend to read funny books… Not sure why, but I really don’t. The funniest books I have read recently would be Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlene.

Although, I anticipate Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling will be super funny!

6. Dramas- A character who is a drama queen/ king

The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass by Adan Jerreat-Poole!! I recently read this one which is why this is sticking out to me! There is one character in this book who is able to complain about any and all situations! He is always scared and freaking out about something lol so, that would be my pick!

7. Animated- A book with cartoons on the cover

I am going to use a Netgalley book I recently was approved for! It isn’t really cartoon but I would say its animated maybe?? I’m not sure haha.

8. Watch it again- A book/ book series that you want to re-read

I never ever reread! I have literally no desire to reread books!! However, if I had to reread something I would pick the Charlotte Holmes Series by Brittany Cavallaro!! Love this series so much, it was a blast to read so I could probably reread these if needed 🙂

9. Documentaries- A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone.

I haven’t read it yet and its been on my shelf for MONTHS!! But I would have to say Becoming by Michelle Obama! Like I said, I haven’t read it but it has amazing reviews and lets be real, who does love Michelle Obama?!?! I am Canadian and I think she is one of the best women out there so, I feel like its a safe book to recommend to people!

38746485

10. Action and adventure- An action packed book

I am currently reading The Dark Continent by Scott Reardon. This book is full of action and violence! So far it is go-go-go and does not look like it will be slowing down!


Thanks for checking out my tag!! I tag anyone who wants to participate 🙂
