Social Media Book Tag

Book Tag

I found this book tag on Goodreads and you can see it HERE.

I figured with it being Friday I could do something a little fun. So here we go, a short book tag and I dare you all to do it yourself. Make sure you share it with me if you do one. I just love getting into the minds of others. I also like to add books to my TBR list.

|Twitter| Your favorite short book (under 200 pages) Charlotte’s Web. I’m not going to lie…I had to search for this one. Most of the books I read now are well over 200 pages. But I did so very much love this book when I was a child and would probably still love it today.

24178

|Facebook| A book that everyone pressured you to read. 50 Shades of Grey. Everyone was reading it…I wanted to read it. I regret that decision. Honesty moment: I read all three…

10818853

|Tumblr| A book you read before it was cool. Twilight. No lie, the cover caught my attention and the story kept me interested. Before I knew it…everyone was reading twilight.

41865

|MySpace| A book that you liked when you were younger, but you probably would not like now. Little Women! I really did like it when I was younger and now I just can’t read it.

1934

|Instagram| A book that has the most beautiful cover in existence. I am very partial to the cover of Cinder. The artwork is so beautiful!

11235712

|YouTube| A book that you wish was made into a movie. See, this one is hard for me. I would love to see the Hollows series by Kim Harrison made into a movie, but I feel like they would just ruin it.

30264

|Goodreads| A book that you would recommend to anyone and everyone. The Hollows series again…I can’t help it! But I also recommend Desperation by Stephen King to just about everyone. It’s my favorite Stephen King novel.

That was a short one. Which is a good thing. I just don’t have the time to sit and write post like I used to. Don’t worry, I am working on this, trying to make time for my blog. Time just gets away with me with everything I have going on.

I hope you do the book tag too. I love these things!

Bookstore Dangers

Yep. That is my Nightstand!

Yep. That is my Nightstand!

I went to the book store yesterday.  I just had this undying need to go and look around.  It’s a used bookstore that I absolutely love.  They are so well organized and there are so many books.  Now, I have plenty of books to read on my Kindle.  I downloaded a bunch of books at the beginning of the year, but you just can’t beat the feeling of picking up a book and taking it home to join all your other friends.  Yes, friends because that is exactly what my books are to me.  My friends and my escape from reality, though reality isn’t so bad right now.

So, I went to the book store called Mr. K’s and browsed all the shelves looking for something new.  I want to branch out and read books from different genres.  I have a ton of books about vampires and werewolves.  I have also read a lot of young adult books.  So, I went with a few things that were different.  I bought a series called “Fools Gold” by Jude Fisher.  As well as a book Called “The Warded Man” by Peter V. Brett.  At the moment I am reading “Bitten” by Kelley Armstrong.  “Bitten” is now a series on Syfy and I am saving all the episodes for when I finish the book, but the book is also part of a 13 book series. I love long series.  It’s great getting to spend a lot of time with your favorite characters.

I didn’t stop there.  I made my way to the young adult section.  I can’t help myself.  They usually have the cutest love stories and since I don’t have a love life and never have had a love life, I enjoy the simple, cute, and clean love stories the best.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the more mature love stories too.  I have read the “Black Dagger Brotherhood” series and would like to revisit that series soon, there are a few books I never bought and I want to catch up.  I have also read the books that “True Blood” was based on.   Not to mention that I actually did read, but did not enjoy, the “50 Shades of Gray” series.  Actually, I enjoyed the story, but the erotica part of it was definitely not my style.

I ended up spending 42 dollars on books yesterday.  I bought 12 books.  3 of the books were the “Fools Gold” series and another 3 were part of the young adult series “Nightshade” series.

I was so torn when I went to bed last night.  I always read before I go to sleep and I just didn’t know which book to start!  I ended up not starting any new books and just picked up where I left off in “Bitten.”

I am such a book nerd.  I am so excited for the stack of books now sitting on my nightstand, just waiting for me to dive in and lose myself!

P.S.  I have added a new page to my blog for books that I have read this year.  You can find it HERE. Check it out and let me know if you have read any of the books on my list or plan on reading them.
