My Life In Books tag

Would you look at that โ€“ I am actually trying to catch up on all my pending tags?! This is unheard of! ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway, I was tagged for the My Life In Books tag by the lovely Joanne @ YA Guitarist! Please make sure to check out her blog and click that follow button! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This tag was originally created by One World, Too Many Pages.

A book for each initial

Jย โ€“ย Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontรซ

Aย โ€“ย Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Cย โ€“ย Caravalย by Stephanie Garber

Kย โ€“ย The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Iย โ€“ย Ignite Meย by Tahereh Mafi

Eย โ€“ย Every Dayย by David Levithan

(obviously I had to try and get at least ONE of the Shatter Me books in there ;P)

Age โ€“ count along your bookshelf

I am 19 years old and the 19th book on my shelf is Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. Well, this is one of the many books that Iโ€™ve owned for ages but havenโ€™t gotten around to reading yet! The Infernal Devices series has been on my radar ever since I read the TMI series! I really do hope Iโ€™ll get around to reading this trilogy soon!

A book that represents a destination you would love to
travel to

For this one, I could have chosen pretty muchย any novel that is set in London! I decided on Bridget Jonesโ€™s Diary by Helen Fielding because I love the movies ๐Ÿ˜› It has always been a dream of mine to go to London one day and I just really, really hope I get to go there one day! Maybe even live there?! *sighs*

Favourite colour

Ohhh, I donโ€™t really have a favourite colour if Iโ€™m completely honest! I do love the colour of my room though, itโ€™s this very cute, light blue. And generally, Iโ€™m very fond of different shades of blue like teal, azure, royal blue etc and I love books with blue covers! One book cover that represents those lovely blues is Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.

Fondest Memories of

I could have chosen a lot of books for this one because thereโ€™s so many books that I read in different situations that I think back to very fondly ๐Ÿ˜› I decided on The Short Second Life of Bree Tannerย by Stephenie Meyer. I used to be absolute trash for the Twilight series (I think most of us were) and this is an Eclipse novella!

I think back to it very fondly because I just remember having a sleepover with my friend and she had only just gotten this book and I was desperate to read it! ย I brought one of my books to the sleepover and she gave me this one and we LITERALLY sat next to each other all night long, not speaking a word, just reading. Reading until it was dawn and I finished the entire book in that one sitting! And my friendย did as well and we just looked at each otherโ€ฆ and went to sleep lol. I just love thinking back to that night like we literally exchanged books, sat next to each other in silence and read :โ€™) It was lovely โค

Most difficult to read

To be honest, I found it so difficult to read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I just had a hard time with the writing and a lot of the words that I didnโ€™t understandโ€ฆ and I forced myself through it at times. I did enjoy the story, especially after listening to the audiobook, but I just had difficulties reading it.

Which book in your TBR pile will you get theย most satisfaction/biggest sense of accomplishment from?

Oh, this is easy! That will definitely beย Six of Crowsย by Leigh Bardugo. I know Iโ€™ve said this a lot already but Six of Crows has been on my TBR list ever since it got released. (And you’re probably thinking GOD JACKIE WHEN WILL YOU FINALLY STOP TALKING ABOUT READING IT AND ACTUALLYย START READING IT?!?!?!?! LOL) Iโ€™ve absolutely adored the Grisha trilogy and I am so excited to finally read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom and get to know the characters my children that everyone keeps talking about! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I loved the one about the Eclipse novella. I never read that one but I was once Twilight trash too ahaha but it reminds me of when my sister and I both got into Harry Potter and I was one book ahead of her and we laid side by side one night, her reading Goblet of Fire and me reading Order of the Phoenix when we had to evacuate for Hurricane Rita years ago. That’s probably one of my favorite memories actually haha

  2. I loved that story about The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! I used to have a friend like that and we would just read together in the library. Although I couldn’t get into that Bree Tanner story for some reason, maybe because I was annoyed it was so different from Twilight.

  3. I also struggled through Brave New World. The way it was written, and some of the words he used was just weird. It was definitely something I had to force myself to keep reading at times.

We too have to read Six of Crows, it’s been on our TBR far too long!! ๐Ÿค“ Also that’s story of yours with reading with your friend ALL NIGHT is soo ADORABLE!! ๐Ÿ˜†โค

  7. WOW JACKIE TRYING TO GET THROUGH YOUR TAGS??? Lucky girl who remembers all of them. XD I’ve gotten so many I don’t remember what they are or who nominated me! I shall starr writing them down. *nodnod*

    Anyways, thanks so much for tagging me, Jackie!!! And yeeeeees Jackie, we’re all wondering why you haven’t read Six of Crows yet. *side glance* I feel like my favorite color in book covers would have to be… white or black. White is so clean, but black is also really dark. I don’t know. I just like them. ๐Ÿ˜›

    AGH YOU WANT TO GO TO/LIVE IN LONDON TOO??? It’s my DREAM to visit there (and Paris) and I also want to live there! Okay so it might be for the accent, but still!!!

    1. Ahhh don’t say that or I’ll be tempted to drop all the books I’m currently reading and just pick up SOC! ๐Ÿ˜‚
      I wish I had more friends who loved books so you could just meet up and read together in silence, it’d be awesome ๐Ÿ˜‰
      You’re welcome and I’ll have to check out your answers for this one! Thank you ๐Ÿ’œ

  11. Wonderful answers. How I wish I have a friend which enjoys reading. All of my friends aren’t as into reading as me. If only i have a friend who could sit beside me and read with me throughout the night. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Don’t worry Jackie, I have yet to read Six of Crows yet. I have been telling myself to just start reading the duology but…

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ’œ hahaha and I wish I had more friends who enjoyed reading as well! I need to visit more libraries and ask people if they wanna be my friend ๐Ÿ˜‚ Ahh, I’m glad to hear that! And same but I’ve been anticipating it for so long, I’m actually kind of scared to start Six of Crows! ๐Ÿ‘€

      1. I’m scared too. I got into a really bad reading slump after I finished Shadows and Bone. Now im really scared to read any of Leigh Bardugo books. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  12. I hate to admit that I was Twitrash in my teenage years, but I totally was – definitely not for the movies, though. SO BAD. MUCH CRINGE. I never got around toe reading The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. I’ve been DYING to read Six of Crows, but I haven’t gotten to it. I haven’t included it in my June TBR, but I have a few pending that I might end up reading in June, anyway. I ALSO have not gotten to the Infernal Devices yet, but will soon (hopefully).


  13. AHH THIS WAS SO FUN, JACKIE!!! Blue is a really soothing colour and I love it too (but green will always be my first favourite) Twilight Trash? A.B.S.O.L.U.T.E.L.Y. I loved it when I first read the books and now, looking back, the books were really problematic. I read the series 2 years back and gosh. I WAS FREAKING OBSESSED WITH IT. Now, the obsession has worn down to a great extent. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Also, SOMEONE KILL ME. I HAVEN’T READ THE INFERNAL DEVICES TRILOGY AND THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS SERIES MY CASSANDRA CLARE. (CAN I GET MORE HORRIBLE? I DOUBT IT.) OH AND SIX OF CROWS. Basically, I have missed out on reading all the hyped YA books. I really need to catch up on that. I’d love to visit Greece, if offered a choice! AH BUT SERIOUSLY, MY HISTORY OBSESSION IS ALWAYS INTRUDING LOL. โค

    1. Ahh yes, I think everyone can relate to the Twilight obsession because we were all in love with the books at one point! ๐Ÿ˜‚ AND LITERALLY SAME I HAVEN’T READ TID OR SOC EITHER AND SO MANY OTHER HYPED UP YA BOOKS OOPSIES! Ohhh, I’ve been to Greece when I was like 2 so I don’t remember much lol but I wanna go back!
