It seems to be that the world is slowly returning back to normal as we tentatively emerge out of lockdown. Nevertheless, I still wanted to have a go at the Stay At Home Book Tag which has been doing the rounds recently. I found this over at Zeezee With Books but it was originally created by booktuber Princess of Paperbacks.
Laying in bed — A book you read in one day
The Wicked King by Holly Black – the pages just kept turning, turning and turning until the very last one!
Snacking – A book that is a ‘guilty pleasure’ read
The Robert Langdon novels by Dan Brown – I just live them and think they’re full of suspense and conspiracy.
Netflix — A series that you want to start
The Daevabad Trilogy by S.A. Chakraborty – I recently purchased the FairyLoot exclusive editions so I’m looking forward to reading them!
Deep clean — A book that has been on your TBR for ages
The Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte – this was one of the first books on my Goodreads TBR. It sounded really intriguing but I still haven’t got around to picking it up.
Animal Crossing — A book you recently bought because of the hype
Crescent City – House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas – I don’t really think this one needs any explanations at all!
Productivity — A book you learned from or had an impact on you
Remember This When You’re Sad by Maggy Van Eijk – this book helped put a lot of things in perspective for me.
FaceTime — A book you were gifted
I have a special anniversary edition of the Lord of the Rings trilogy which was gifted to me from some friends in school.
Self-care — What is one thing you have done recently to look after yourself
Spend time reading out in the garden in the sunshine! Also putting myself on a work schedule so that I make sure to take proper breaks on the days I’m working from home.
BONUS — An upcoming release you are looking forward to
The Rain Heron by Robbie Arnott – This is a July release which I was fortunate enough to be accepted for on NetGalley so I’m really excited to get around to reading it!
Or:Written in Starlight by Isabel Ibañez, the sequel to Woven in Moonlight.
