My Life in Books Tag


I love the look of this tag after reading Stephanie’s post over at Adventures of a Bibliophile.

Find a book for each of your initials. I’ve chosen these books from my ‘read list’ on goodreads.

N – Not funny Not clever by Jo Verity

I – I think I Love You by Allison Pearson

C- Child 44 by Tom Rob smith

K- Kitchen Rhythm: a Year in a Parisian Patisserie

I- Irma Voth by Miriam Toews

Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?

My bookshelves are double stacked because there are soo many books. Number 49 is Breathing Lessons by Anne Tyler.

Pick a book set in your city/country.

Last year (2016),  I read “When the Sky Fell Apart” by Caroline Lea set during the Nazi Occupation of  Jersey, Channel Islands in World War Two. Although I’ve read many novels set in war torn Europe, this was the first one I’ve read written about my island home during this very dark time in our history.

Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to.

I’ve love to visit Paris again sometime so I’m going with The Good Thief’s Guide to Paris by Chris Ewan.

Pick a book that’s your favourite colour.

Red is one of my favourite colours and the cover of Fever of blood by Oscar De Muriel has a wonderful shade of red on it.

Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

I think my fondest book memories must be of The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. My oldest sister read them to me during school holidays a long time ago. I in turn read them to my son not so many years ago.

Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

Just recently I gave up on a NetGalley ARC, Tragic Deception by M A Comely and S A Prather. It started off well for me but then it really annoyed me and I gave up.

Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

Watership Down by Richard Adams, my son has been wanting me to read this for ages, so when I do finally get around to it we’ll both be very pleased 🙂


If you enjoyed reading this consider yourself tagged 🙂

  1. This is a fun tag to read! Damn am I tagged now ? I’ll have a good think to see if I can answer these questions, those last ones are harder than the first. Have you read Child 44? I’ve been meaning to read that one too but haven’t gotten round to it and don’t really know what to expect.
