Tag Thursday: My Life in Books Tag

I spotted this lovely book tag over on Kristin Kraves Books, whose blog I utterly adore. I’ve decided to try and make it a bit harder on myself and only use books I’ve got on my book shelf. If there’s a way I can use on the shelf I haven’t even read yet, even better.

Irishathon TBR Ideas

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Our national holiday is the perfect time to get a little bit of green into your reading. Luckily, there’s a great readathon happening at the moment to help you out.

The Irishathon is a month long readathon run by Aoife (not me), Elaine, and Leanne. I would love to say I’m taking part, but unfortunately the announcements completely passed me by. So, instead I’m going to share some books I would read were I taking part. Who knows, this could be some inspiration for you.

If any of these lovely characters could pop in every now and then while I tackled my TBR, they’d be more than welcome. I hope they bring a Chinese with them.

Characters To Name Your Children After

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

I don’t plan to have children, so I don’t usually pay too close attention to character’s names when I’m reading. That said, I play a LOT of The Sims, and the birth rate in my town there is pretty healthy.

When I play The Sims, I often read while gaming. It’s a good way to pass time while my Sim is sleeping or at work, and there’s nothing I can do in the game. There are a lot of names I’ve found in books and given to new babies in the game.
