I admit I’m not the biggest Taylor Swift fan but I have absolutely been in love with her new album Folklore. I saw this booktag on Twitter through @PeiReads and I just had to do it. I’m guessing the original graphic was made for bookstagram, but I’ll be blogging it instead.
Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about, to do this tag
What are you currently reading?As of Sunday, I’m 300 pages into The Pheonix Empress by K Arsenault Rivera. I read The Tiger’s Daughter back in 2018 and I really enjoyed it. Currently, I’m loving the deep dive into Hokkaran culture and the angst between Shefali and Shizuka. I love that even though the two have their secrets and Shefali has a lot of (justifiable) beef with Shizuka, they talk through their issues!
1. Twitter – Your favorite short book (<200 pages)
I just read this one recently, but In the Vanisher’s Palace by Aliette de Bodard. This is an F/F Beauty and the Beast retelling that has linguistic magic, dragons, doctor-scientists who are dragons, trippy malicious tech, set in a post-alien invasion world inspired by Vietnam. It was pretty much made for me. Read More »
This is an original challenge designed specifically so two people who don’t read the same books can each talk about favorites. The premise behind for this challenge is that the two of you are trying to set up your favorite characters on blind dates.
1. Find a friend!
2. Make a list of characters from books the other player has NOT read.
2. For each potential date, each player says three positive things about their character. If you can’t think of anything positive, spin a negative into a positive. Evil warlord hell-bent on destroying the heroes? Well that person’s got some great leadership skills, probably has a ton of money, and knows how to fight for what they believe.
3. Together, decide whether you would set those characters up on a blind date!
I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you’re interested in doing this challenge, post a link in the comments so I can watch/read!12
Hi everyone! For week 5 of the Summer Blogging Promo Tour, Katie & Ashely from Lost In Pages and I have decided to compare book covers from different countries. It’s always interesting to see different covers for the same book and fun to talk about which covers we prefer. Each of us picked three books, and for consistency, the US cover will be on the left and the International one on the right.
1. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
K: For me, this is a super easy choice. The UK trumps the US cover in every way. I love a good minimalist white cover and UK cover manages to be minimalist but still detailed. The blue smoky streak at the bottom adds a pop of color to the cover and also represents elements within the book.
Katie (Lost In Pages): I haven’t personally read this series, but I’ve always heard great things! Just from a purely cover judge, I’d pick the UK edition. I really love the colors, and I’m typically not one to love people on book covers. Read More »
