Book Tags

The Racing to Read Book Tag

I am more of a walker than a runner. The last time I tried running for fitness, I tripped over and tore both my leggings and my knees open. So, It’s probably safer if I just do book tags, like this one I found on Riddhi @ Whispering Stories about running instead.

This tag was originally created by Ariel Bissett and Raeleen Lamay. You can also find them on their podcast: Books Unbound.

Warm Up: A book that stretches your mind

This stretched my mind in the sense that it opened my mind to thinking about my mortality without fear and got me into watching Ask a Mortician.

Start Line: What’s a book that you started but never finished?

little dorrit

Me and Dickens are not on good terms and this was another failed attempt to get into his books. It may have been because this book is huge but, after just two hours of the audiobook and realising I didn’t care for any of these characters or for the slowness of the story, I’d just had enough.

Sprint: A book you read really quickly

Kay O’Neill’s Tea Dragon trilogy are all quick and easy reads but they are worth every second!

Marathon: What’s your favorite long book?


This clocks in at over 800 pages but, unlike Little Dorrit, this kept my interest. The characters are all interesting and I can’t wait for A Day of Fallen Night!

Hurdles: What’s a book that had ups and downs?

This book had its moments. If only those moments were closer together and there wasn’t a lot of fluff between the action.

Finish Line: A book you were proud to finish

I’m proud I finished it simply because of how long and how complicated it is. Seriously, you practically need a flowchart to keep track of what everyone’s doing.

Gold Medal: Best book you’ve read during a readathon


I read the first volume of Heartstopper during the Summer Readathon 2020 and, safe to say, I haven’t looked back since!

Participation Ribbon: An underrated book you wish got more attention


I’ve discovered this middle-grade book only recently but I haven’t heard anyone else talk about it and this book needs to be talked about. Simply because it’s a fun, steampunk adventure with great characters and plot twists!

I tag anyone who loves to race through their books more than racing on a track!

I hope to see you again very soon.
