Its been ages since I have done a Tag Tuesday post. So when Danni at ForBooksSake tagged me I thought it was the perfect time to get my but in gear and actually put out a tag post!
SECRET BOOK SUNDAY
What book or series do you secretly love that you don’t always tell people?
There isn’t really a series I don’t always tell people about. there are a number of series I shout about and depending on who I am talking to will determine what series I might talk about and there might be some time between me talking about various series but if Iike a book I will shout about it.
One series I remember enjoying in the height of the YA dystopia craze is The Testing series by Joelle Charbonneau and I haven’t thought about that in a few years and I am not sure how that one will hold up over time, so i do need to re-read it. But I do remember enjoying it at the time.
Which two books or series do you think would be cool if they were mashed up as one book or series?
Oh so difficult! I think I would more like some favourite characters to meet just to witness their conversations than actually mixing the books. I think Peter Grant from the River’s of London would get on like a house on fire with Dr Maxwell from The Chronicles of St Mary’s. Also I think Irene from The Invisible Library could have a quirky dynamic especially if Irene was ‘recovering’ a book from the Folly library!
What is your favourite trilogy?
Its kind of hard to find a trilogy that is still just a trilogy, a lot have added extra books, spin off series, short story collections. At the moment a couple of my favourites are The interdependency by John Scalzi, Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab and The Nevernight Chronicles by Jay Kristoff.
What book has the wackiest story or wackiest cover?
This has to go to a book I am currently attempting to read! The Atrocity Archives by Charlie Stross which is part of his Laundry files series. I have been trying to read this book for a while now and keep having to restart as it is so strange and wacky and kind of awesome but it is taking me a time to wrap my head around it all. it has lots of high brow physics and electronics mixed with a secret government dept (we know I love them) in charge of stopping Cthulhu like demon summoning. I need to finish it so I can review it!
What book or series brings back memories from your past?
Old Man’s War by John Scalzi. I first read this book just before I moved to Ohio back in 2011 as the main character was originally from the area I was moving too. I later found out that John Sclazi lived nearby. It was one of the few physical books that came with me so was often read to the point that my original copy fell apart. reding those first few pages still reminds me of my home in Ohio even though its been 8 years since I left. It is one of my favourite series too.
FREAKY BOOK FRIDAY
What book freaked you out the most or what book cover freaked you out the most?
I don’t read a lot of scary horror, my horror tastes tend to move towards body horror or gore. so I don’t really have an answer for this one. I do have The Book of Accidents by Chuck Wendig on my TBR and I suspect that it is going to be spine-tingling good.
Post a picture of your favourite bookshelf, a couple of bookshelves, or an entire bookcase.
I am currently rearranging my shelves as we recently have purchased some new shelves which are placed around the house so I can display special editions in more prominence so currently most of my shelves are in disarray. Therefore I have shared one of the first shelves I have started to re-arrange.
