Book Blogger Insider Tag

Lazy Sundays are the perfect day to fill in fun book blogger tags. ūüôā

It’s absolutely gorgeous out today in my little town on the outskirts of London with blue skies, sunshine, and a soft cool breeze. We’ve had nearly a week of summertime weather and I’m trying to ignore that it likely won’t last much longer. So to anyone else in the UK, take advantage of the beautiful weather while it lasts! Who knows when we’ll get it back again.

If you follow me on Twitter you probably know that I finished reading the first Wheel of Time book, The Eye of the World, by Robert Jordan at 3AM last night and I haven’t been able to shut about it since I began. For anyone on¬†the fence about reading these books like I was: just do it! I wish I’d started sooner but I’m so excited to have a super long epic fantasy series ahead of me now. My review for¬†The Eye of the World will be coming soon!

I’d like to thank the wonderful Inkblottings¬†for tagging me in the Book Blogger Insider Tag! Please be sure to check out their book blog and give them a follow!

3 Quotes, 3 Days: Day 3

This is it, my final day of quotes. Thank you to mistysbookspace¬†one last time for tagging me — it’s been fun! So far I’ve shared a quote from Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring and Gaiman’s Neverwhere. I guess this means I find the fantasy genre to be particularly quotable. So I figured I’d share another quote in a slightly different genre to mix it up a little bit. A quick reminder of the rules:

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

So here’s my final quote for the ‘3 Quotes, 3 Days’ tag:

3 Quotes, 3 Days: Day 1

I’m really excited about this tag. I love stumbling upon a quote in a book and feeling myself fall in love with the words while drifting off into my own little dreamland. I’m looking forward to finding three quotes to share with you all over the next few days! Choosing only three is going to be difficult.

I’d like to give a warm thank you to mistysbookspace for tagging me. Please visit their blog and show¬†them some love!

TAG: Newbie Book Blogger

Since I’m new to the book blogging world I thought it would be appropriate to give this tag a go. I originally found this on Cozy Bookish Life¬†who got it from The Book Mermaid¬†— definitely check them both out! And share your own answers to these questions on your blog as well! I’d love to give them a read.

1. Why did you start this blog?

Three reasons: I love to write, I’m obsessed with books, and I miss being in university. That’s right, I’m one of those weirdos¬†that actually liked being in school. I miss writing assignments and sharing thoughts on things I read with the class and my instructors. So this is kind of a similar experience but with a much wider audience. Oh and there isn’t a syllabus, so I can talk and read about whatever I want! Bonus!

2. What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?

I really like to read older books. So I’m hoping that, along with reviews of newer books, I’m able to bring more discussion of little-known favourites from the previous couple centuries! I’m also very obsessed with horror and look forward to sharing that with the book blogging community.
