What’s On My Bookshelf Tag

I don’t remember the last time I spent this much time on my own laptop, but it’s been really tough to find my work-life-balance so far (probably because I love work but whatever). Still, I don’t want there to only be trailer posts on the blog, so I was really happy that Kelly @Just Another Book in the Wall tagged me for the What’s On My Bookshelf Tag (originally created by Emily @Wicked Good Reads)! It’s a little hard to do without my physical bookshelf, but I will try my best!

A Library Book

S.: S. Hardcover in slipcase : [S.]: By Doug Dorst: S. : J. J. Abrams (Ship of Theseus)I don’t have any library books, however, I DO have a book in library optic and that’s S. by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst. That book is something else, which always makes it hard to explain why I still haven’t finished reading it.

A Book You Got As a Gift

Probably a couple throughout my days, but somehow the first one I thought of was Landline by Rainbow Rowell, which my very good friend Cristina sent me all the way from Portugal. I love her so much and not just because she up and decided to send me one of her books to keep.

A Childhood Book

Today, I am really just going with the first book that pops into my mind, which in this case is Momo by Michael Ende. I am pretty sure I did a book report on it and confused my entire class about what it’s about.

A Magical Book

Devils & Thieves (Devils & Thieves, #1)All books are magical in itself, because words are magic, but for the purpose of this tag I will go with Devils & Thieves. Despite the book having quite a few shortcomings, the magical system is really interesting!

A Romantic Book

Nicholas Sparks books are pretty much synonymous with romance, right? One of the ones I really, really liked was The Longest Ride. I guess I appreciate a good dual time line if done well.

A Steamy Book

I don’t really read all that many steamy books? But the first chapter of Save the Date by Morgan Matson was surprisingly steamy in comparison to the lack of romance (which I very much appreciated) during the rest of the book.

An Old Book

Persuasion? Persuasion! (Cause it’s my favourite Austen book.)

A Book That Makes You Happy and/or Laugh

I recently read Parsnips, Buttered by Joe Lycett, which is basically just a compilation of mails Joe wrote or received. Some of those stories are truly hilarious. He is one of my favourite British comedians, so I definitely laughed, while I simultaneously very much doubt it’s for everyone.

A Book That Makes You Emotional

We all know I cannot stop mentioning this book, but The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was really great and made me feel so many different things.

A Book Whose Ending You Disliked

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)? I just always pretend that book doesn’t even exist in the series.

A Book You Wish Had Illustrations

I am not sure if maybe there were a couple tiny illustrations in The Night Circus, but I would want a proper graphic novel for the magic that is this book!

A Book or Genre You Like to Read on a Rainy Day

I think I am a pretty simple girl and can read whatever comes my way on a rainy day. Lately it has been more contemporary and adult fiction admittedly though.


Anyone and everyone who wants to do this tag! I am unfortunately really not able to be super active in the community right now, so I have no idea who has done the tag or who would enjoy it. Link me up if you decide to give it a try though, so I can see your answers!

Did you like this tag? Could you relate to my answers? Let’s talk a little bit in the comments and I’ll try not to need a week to respond to them!

  1. This is such a fun tag, I love your answers! You’re the first person I’ve seen mention Devils & Thieves! I love the premise for that one, but I’ve heard nothing about it. Would you recommend it? A graphic novel edition of The Night Circus would be so magical ๐Ÿ˜

  2. Kat, I’m so, so, so very happy that you are loving work so far. I hope this continues โค
    Your answers were great to read! I agree that the beginning of Save The Date was steamier than I thought it would be, but I'm glad that ultimately it all focused on the family in that one ๐Ÿ˜€ And.. the night circus…. Well, Kat, please, if I haven't read this by the end of the month you should scream at me, because I FINALLY have a copy of the book (well, I have the e-book) and I NEED to read it ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Hahaha I’ve gotten that question a lot. There are multiple reasons I chose that name. When I first started blogging, I had a strong phase of loving the impossible girl from Doctor Who, my real last name seems to be impossible to pronounce for many people and then it kind of worked as a homage for Kim Possible. So, yeah, that’s it basically!

  3. Great answers for this tag Kat, I especially loved your answer where you said all books are magical because that is so true.
    The Night Circus would be incredible if it had illustrations, like it’s already my all-time favourite book but if an illustrated edition was ever released I would be first in line to buy a copy. Also yeah if I could forget Allegiant existed I would, talk about a disappointing ending to the Divergent series, I’m not even a massive fan of the trilogy but I was still really let down by that ending.
    Great post, and again great answers. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

    • I am not a fan of classics and I don’t think I will ever enjoy reading them as much as I do contemporary fiction, but Persuasion was at least among my favourites in terms of the lowered standards I have for old timey books haha


  4. Will Kat ever stop dragging Allegiant? Nope, probably not. Never.
    I’m still super bitter that the book was published on my birthday and I was actually excited about it and had high expectations and considered it a birthday gift. What an awful disappointment!
    So happy you liked Persuasion, maybe I’ll give it another try at some point! Because I tried to read it along with Emma and didn’t manage to read either of them. But I blame a reading slump on that!
    Lovely tag, adored your answers! โค

    • Allegiant deserves to be dragged forevermore!
      And give Persuasion a chance ๐Ÿ˜€ I did not like Emma and dnf-ed it too. But Persuasion, coupled with the 2005 BBC adaptation, really works for me haha


  5. This seems like a really cool Tag!! I have to admit that I still haven’t read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society even though I checked it out of the library ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I really need to pick it up soon, especially as I want to watch the movie ๐Ÿ™‚
