Book Blogger Memory Tag


Taking things easy today with another book tag – this time the Book Blogger Memory Challenge which really was a challenge at times! I found this one via Fi’s Bibliofiles and you check out their answers via this link.

Before we get to the challenge itself though I wanted to shout out a short story by Quenby Olson called ‘A Slumbering Fire’ which you can find here. I read it last week and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. It’s a wonderful, smouldering (on more than one level) of two women finding one another just as their worlds are attempting to push them out of sight and thought. Plus there’s a dragon. So go and check it out!!


The Rules:

You must answer these questions without looking anything up on the internet and without looking at your bookshelves!!

Life in Books Book Tag


Something a little lighter to kick off the week, especially as I spent yesterday wishing I could evacuate my own body and this was a wonderful distraction. I’d been searching around for a new tag to play with, and discovered this one via Ashlee at Books Are 42 blog. I’m not sure who created the tag, but a shoutout to them because it was a lot of fun.

The Count to 10 with Me Tag


I am currently arguing with my reviews (and losing) so I decided to do something different in the hopes of getting the words flowing again. And I spied this book tag a while ago on Bookforager’s blog, and it was created by the booktuber the Bumbling Blogger’s partner, Sean.

I’m not going to tag anyone specifically but if you want to give it ago please do, it’ll be interesting to see your answers, and just remember to tag the original creator.

The Coffee Book Tag


Kicking off the week with a book tag that I was tagged in ages ago. First of thank you Sue at Sue’s Musings blog who tagged me to take part in this Book Tag. And I’d like to also give a shout out to BangadyBangz who created the book tag as well. If you would like to join in please do, but be sure to tag the person who created the book tag initially.

I’m actually not a coffee drinker – I love the smell, I love coffee shops, but I just can’t stand the taste, but this was a fun tag to do!

#Norsevember Tag!!


Currently playing catch up with life in general, but reviews and challenges in particular – unfortunately the shift to winter brought a bad arthritis flare up so I have been out of action, and while I have been reading a lot, I didn’t have the focus for writing. However, I am now remedying that and today I am catching up with both the #Norsevember tag and Sunshine Blogger nomination posts (that will be up later in a separate post).

Firstly I would like to thank PaperbackBex for nominating me to participate in the #Norsevember tag, and then although its late in the month and I have no idea who has and hasn’t been tagged I would like to tag the following (please check out their blogs as they are all amazing)

Sam | The Book in Hand

*** ***

These are all books I have read, and I have commented briefly beneath each one and either linked them to an existing review or marked them with a ** which means the review is forthcoming and I will link them later.
