book tag

-| Leap Year Book Tag |-

As it is a leap year and we have an extra day this month I thought that I would take part in the Leap Year Book Tag which I saw over on Kathryn from Books. Books and more books.

1. An extra day: what is one book that brought a little something extra?

Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff, I didn’t know what to expect from this book but I absolutely loved it! They are unlike anything I’ve ever read before and I really hope that I will find the courage to pick up Darkdawn soon to finish the trilogy.

2. Taking a big leap: what is one book that you are/were afraid to read?

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski this is a pretty daunting book, I’ve been interested in it for so long and I was gifted it for my birthday at the beginning of January and I’m a little scared to actually open it.

3. Every 4 years: what is the 4th book you read this year?

In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children #4) by Seanan McGuire, I rated this 3.5 you can find my full review here.

4. 366 days in the year: looking at your 3rd shelf, name the 6th book on that shelf, and name the 6th book after that!

Here is my 1st bookcase ( I have this one and the smaller one next to it) the third shelf down is my favourite series/nordic noir shelf.
The sixth book is Watch Me (Social Media Murders #2) by Angela Clarke and then the sixth book after that is I’m Travelling Alone (Holger Munch & Mia Kruger #1) by Samuel Bjork.

5. Leaping ahead: name 4 books that you want to read by the next leap year [alternative: name something on your bookish bucket list that you want to complete by the next leap year].

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, I’ve recently read Northern Lights and I couldn’t resist picking up this beautiful edition to read the other two books in the trilogy. I remember loving His Dark Materials when I was younger, however it was an eye-opening experience reading Northern Lights as an adult as many of the themes went over my young head so I’m curious to carry on.

The whole Hannibal Lecter by Thomas Harris series honestly but The Silence of the Lambs is the next one I need to get to.

A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, I’m still making my way through A Clash of Kings! I feel like it’s taking me such a long time, however I have heard that it’s the hardest one to get through so fingers crossed if I keep pushing through then I will start enjoying the series again. At the time of writing I’m about 75% in so hopefully I will finish it soon and then I can make a start on A Storm of Swords.

Sherlock Holmes #1 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this is the stunning Knickerbocker Classics edition. I’ve had it for about 2 years and I still haven’t picked it up yet!

6. Leapfrog: name a book on your TBR that has green in it.

I don’t have a book on my TBR with the word green in the title in the title so I had to go with the colour being on the cover and I’d say it’s pretty prominent in the case of The Testaments by Margaret Atwood.

7. Bad luck: what bookish things do you steer clear from?

I honestly don’t have an answer for this…

If you want to do this then I tag you!

See you in the next one…

  1. This is such a fun book tag! I might do it. I also haven’t yet Darkdawn, partially because I’m worried it won’t live up to my expectations (I hyped it up lots in my head) and partially because I just don’t want the series to end.

  2. House of Leaves was a strange experience for me. I don’t know if it’s scary so much as disturbing? I loved the found footage parts- but a lot of the other parts actually about the found footage were just a little too long for my tastes. I wish you luck with it! I don’t know how much horror you read but I didn’t find it too scary. I wish you luck with it!
