Firstly, thank you to Cherie @ lovely and grateful for nominating me for this tag, if you haven’t checked out her blog before then please do, I always enjoy reading her posts! It seems (from reading other posts) that the full rules and original creator of this one are unknown, so I’ll just follow what Cherie did and hope for the best.
Three Bookish Goals for 2021
I’ve set my Goodreads Challenge at 40 books for this year, but I’m hoping to surpass that, at this point it could go either way.
I have so many books (both physical and on my kindle) to get through, so I’m hoping to put a serious dent in those – I’m going to make it my focus for the second half of the year.
My parents gifted me a reading subscription for my birthday and I’m aiming to read each of the books that are sent to me within a month of receiving them.
Three Favourite Authors
My top two are Jane Austen and Roald Dahl, I don’t think I could fill the third place – there are too many worthy of the spot!
Three Characters I Love
Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. She has just the right level of sass, and it doesn’t matter how many times I reread the book I just adore her every time!
Matilda in Matilda. An unashamed bookworm – what is there not to love?!
Tom in Goodnight Mister Tom. I just love him, he’s that typical bruised older man that comes across completely differently to how he actually is. To see his progression throughout the book is enough to make anybody cry, and his relationship with Willie is just beautiful!
Three Weirdest Things I’ve Used for Bookmarks
An old shopping list
Three Favourite Covers
I’ll pick from the books that I have a physical copy of…
Three Titles I’ve Watched But Not Read
The Exorcist – but I really want to read it!
The Shining – again, I really want to read this one!
Bridget Jones’s Diary – completely different genre, but one I equally want to check out.
Three Series I’ve Binged
I don’t tend to read series to be honest, the only one that immediately comes to mind is Harry Potter, and I didn’t binge that so I can’t really answer this one.
Three Unpopular Bookish Opinions
I’m really not a fan of dustjackets, I find them awkward when reading (I always have to remove them), and I think a book looks better without one.
I’m not sure how unpopular this one is but I really prefer standalone books to a series. I just like to read the whole story in one go usually. There are exceptions, but ultimately I think I’m just too impatient to wait for the next one!
I really don’t like The Hobbit. I’ve tried to read it a few times because it is such an iconic book, and yet I just can’t get into it. Same for The Lord of the Rings – books and movies.
This was such a fun tag to take part in, what are your thoughts on my answers? As always I would love to hear from you!
Thanks for reading, I hope that you enjoyed!
