Its time for another Tag Tuesday! Its been a good few weeks of Tuesday releases and catching up with book reviews that I haven’t had time to fit in a tag but today I am in the middle of a few books so I have some time to do some tag. I was tagged to do this tag by Ashlee from Books are 42. This tag was created by Brianna’s Books and Randomness.
A Childhood Favourite That You Could Read 100 Times and Still Love
J.R R. Tolkein
Lord of the Rings
My dad read this to me when I was young and I re-read it while I was a teen. Recently I have also gone back to it and I loved it (You can find my Review HERE). It was so full of nostalgia for me but also I loved all the little details that I picked up on on my re read. I think is one of those books you can return to and return too and always find something.
A Book You DNF’d But Would Be Willing to Give A Second Chance To
The Fellowship of the Ring
Lord of the Rings
Unlike the Hobbit I haven’t read this one. I have attempted on multiple occasions, I hit Tom Bombidil and then put it down. I have never made it past that, but this year I am determined too. A group of us are reading through the whole series and this time I am going to finish it! Tom Bombidil will not put me off.
A Newer Favorite You Would Reread
The Once and Future Witches
Alix E. Harrow
This was just gorgeous and magical and wonderful. So far I have loved all of her books and stories and I can’t wait for more. But while I wait I can see myself not only returning to the witches of New Salem but also to January and the thousand doors she discovered. The once and Future witches just had so many layers, with lots of internal retellings of classic fairytales that I can see myself picking up to re-read.
A Book You Hated and Never Want to Read Again
I thought this was really problematic and that’s all I really have to say. You can read my review if you want to know more of my thoughts. But I will not be reading this again.
A Classic You Read in School but Want to Try Again
Measure for Measure
I read Measure for measure and many other Shakespeare plays during school and I have also seen a lot of the preformed but I have not really returned to the text at any point since I left school. I am keen to go back to and read the comedies in particular.
An Author You Would Reread Anything From
Ben Aaronovich, Agatha Christie and John Scalzi …. see the next question
A Series You Want to Reread for The Fun of It
I am doing a whole series of series Re-reads. This Friday I will have my first “Friday at the Folly” where I am re-reading and giving my thoughts while re-reading Ben Aaronavich’s Rivers of London series. I have my Agatha Christie Project and I intend on doing a Throughts while re-reading John Scalzi’s Old Man’s war in the future.
A Book You’ve Read but Want to Listen to The Audiobook
A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians
H. G. Parry
I adored this book and raced through its chonky self in a couple of days. However, when it came to right my review I really struggled. I couldn’t put down in words what it was I loved and I think its one I need to re-read and while the audio is not currently available in the UK I would love to listen to it especially before book two comes out.
