Tag Thursday: The Would You Rather Tag

This time for Tag Thursday I’ve actually been tagged, rather than seeking out one on the internet. I was tagged by my lovely friend Steph from A Little But a Lot, and this tag looks like a really good one.

The way this tag works is that I answer the eight questions Steph has posed, then I’ll ask eight of my own. I love that you guys get to find out so much about me, and I then get to find out a little more about some of my favourite book bloggers, too.

Books I Loved Before I Started Blogging

I may have been blogging about books for almost seven years, but I’ve been reading a lot longer than that. There are a couple of books I met before I started blogging at all, but because they were books I read when I was younger I’ve never reviewed them here. I do aim to one day give them a full review here, but it’s nice to have a think back to where it all began for me.

I’ve had to dig deep into my past to look at some of my favourites from my pre blogging days. If you’re looking to turn back time a little with your reading habits, these would be a great place to start in my opinion. I’ve included a mix of the different genres I love reading, so hopefullly there’s something in there for everyone.
