S.E. Stone from Paper, Pen, and No Plan “bookshelf tagged” me earlier this week. I thought it would be fun to do (not to mention that I am way behind with my posts) so here’s the rules:
“Answer the following questions about books on your bookshelf and then tag five other bloggers. You can answer the questions any way you want, whether it’s on your blog, in a video, or a combination of the two. Then remember to let whoever tagged you know when your post is up so they can read it.”

1. Is there a book that you really want to read but haven’t because you know that it’ll make you cry?
I haven’t came across such a book yet. So no 🙁
2. Pick one book that helped introduce you to a new genre?
If it wasn’t for The Strange Case of Finely Jane by Kady Cross, I wouldn’t have discovered the mechanical world of steampunk.
3. Find a book that you want to reread.
The Crown Tower by Michael J Sullivan! This book was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it to anyone who likes high fantasy stories.
4. Is there a book series you read but wish that you hadn’t?
There isn’t a single book that I’ve read that I didn’t like. However, I do wish that I would have finished Emily Rodda’s Deltora Quest series before watching the anime.
5. If your house was burning down and all of your family and pets were safe, which book would you go back inside to save?
Omigosh a fire!!! I would grab my laptop—hands down. It has everything on it…including my digital library. 🙂
6. Is there one book on your bookshelf that brings back fond memories?
The City of Towers by Keith Baker. My parents gave this book to me on my 13th birthday. It was a book of “firsts”: 1st book I ever owned, 1st fantasy book I ever enjoyed, and the 1st longest book I ever read.
7. Find a book that has inspired you the most.
Do the Work by Steven Pressfield. This is a book I would recommend to anyone trying to start any sort of creative project. Pressfield taught me to ignore resistance and just get things done.
8. Do you have any autographed books?
No…I don’t 🙁
I’ll have to make a point to get one just for the heck of it!
9. Find the book that you have owned the longest.
Bram Stokers Dracula and a Webster Thesaurus that my dad gave me.
I know—that’s two books!
Thing is, I’ve had them both for such a long time that I can’t remember which came first.
10. Is there a book by an author that you never imagined you would read or enjoy?
Captain Underpants by Dave Pilkey. This series was the rave during gradeschool! However, I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about until I read one myself.
Here are my five tags:
- Lizzy Baldwin from My Little Book Blog
- Nirvana from Nirvana’s Pocket Full
- Sabrina Wolfheart from Books and Bark
