I saw this brilliant tag on Sarah Withers blog and loved it, so thought I’d do my own version!
A book for each letter of your name
L – (The) Light We Lost – Jill Santopolo: I really enjoyed this one – I mean, anything billed as “Me Before You meets One Day” is going to appeal to me! Review to follow soon.
A – All I Ever Wanted by Lucy Dillon: this was a great read which surprised me as I expected it to be light and fluffy – and it was, but it was so much more than your average chick-lit. Read my full review here.
U – Us by David Nicholls: well, it had to be, didn’t it?! I will always love this book; I loved everything about it. Emotional, so well-written and funny at times too. Read my full review here.
R – Relativity by Antonia Hayes: I was part of the blog tour for this book, and I’m so glad I was. I really enjoyed it and thought it was a lovely, beautifully written novel. Read my full review here.
A – Atonement by Ian McEwan: an older pick, in that I read it a long time ago so I don’t think I ever reviewed it on my blog – it was before Snazzy Book’s time I think. Perhaps I need to rectify that when I have time… anyway, a great novel and the film wasn’t too bad – mainly due to James McAvoy! Nowhere near as good as the book though, of course!
Age – count along your bookshelf (27)
Commonwealth – Ann Patchett: read my review here.
A book that represents a destination you would love to travel to?
Gosh, there are too many really! I’ve picked a few…
Blue Light Yokohama – Nicolas Obregon (Toyko – Japan) – my review
Little Lies – Liane Moriarty (Australia)
The Tea Planter’s Wife – Dinah Jefferies
I don’t particularly have a favourite colour but I have reviewed a lot of books with this colour on the cover, so I’m going for: BLUE!
So here’s a selection:
Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny
Most difficult to read:
Probably The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini; it’s such an emotional read and so, so great! I read it before I started blogging so there’s no review on my blog but I’ve linked to the Goodreads page.
Which book in your TBR will you get the most satisfaction from reading?
ANY of the books that my mum / friends/ other people have leant me ages ago that I never get around to reading because I keep requesting books on Netgalley, or accepting books for review when I shouldn’t!
A few examples include:
The Girl In The Spider’s Web – David Lagercrantz
Any Human Heart – William Boyd
A Game For All The Family – Sophie Hannah
Please let me know / tag me if you do this tag as I’d love to see your answers too! This was a really fun post to write 🙂
