Tag Thursday: The Christmas Carol Book Tag

In the lead up to Christmas, the Thursday Tag posts have become a little more frequent. Each week leading up to Christmas Eve, Thursdays are going to be a festive occasion.

Today’s tag is all about Christmas carols, also known as one of the best parts of Christmas. After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear, right? This tag comes straight from She Latitude.

Tag Thursday: The Reading Tag

When I saw this tag on 50 A Year, I just had to put my own spin on it. Anything to do with books, and I’m all in. I first took this tag back in 2015, so I thought three years later was the perfect time to update it and see how, if at all, my answers have changed. The only thing to remain is my intense love of books, and my ability to scare my friends with how much I can read.

Tag Thursday: The 90s Movie Tag

I really love 90s movies. I was born in the early 90s, so I wasn’t exactly of the right viewing age when they came out. I spent a lot of time catching up though.

Books with Yellow Covers

This post is part of Top 10 Tuesday, run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Top 10 Tuesday: Words That Appear in Titles All the Time

This post is part of Top 10 Tuesday which is run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

This isn’t going to be exactly 10 things. But we’re here now.

If you’re an avid reader, you will notice that often the same books seem to appear time and time again. You’re not losing your mind, though, it’s just there are so many books out there now with roughly the same title. If you took a drink for every time “The Girl . . .” is in the title of a book, you’d have to be admitted for a stomach pump. I’m going to make a very much not exhaustive list of some of these. If you can think of any, do add them in the comments.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – Stegg Larsson
  • The Girl who Came Home – Hazel Gaynor
  • The Girl with All the Gifts – M.R. Carey
  • The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins
  • The Girl who Saved the King of Sweden – Jonas Jonasson
  • The Girl who Fell from the Sky – Heidi W. Durrow
  • The Girl You Left Behind – JoJo Moyes
  • The Girl of Ink and Stars – Kiran Millwood
  • The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen
