Book Tags

Seasons of Book Blogging Tag

I struggled a bit to find a non-Christmas tag to round off the month but Zezee @ Zezee With Books has a great tag collection page and I found this one from the list. I’d heartily recommend checking Zezee out if you find yourself stuck for a book tag.


  • Thank the creator (Jordyn @ J. Bookish so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
  • State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
  • Have fun, of course!

November is the month when we’re reminded of how much we have to be thankful for. Choose one book you’re grateful for having read and give a shout-out to the person who recommended it!

smoke gets in your eyes

I’m very grateful that I read this. It opened my eyes about the funeral industry and made me face my mortality without fear. No one really recommended this. I just spotted this on an Audible sale and bought this on impulse so, thank you, Audible, I suppose!

December is a time when friends and families come together and celebrate. Name one book you would give as a gift.

the cat who saved books

It’s charming, clever and a short read so I think most people would like it.

January begins a new year. Name a resolution you made this year and if you’ve kept it or not!

I’m afraid I don’t remember if I made a New Year’s Resolution this year but I do remember promising myself at the beginning of 2021 never to leave the biggest or most difficult books on my reading challenges until the last month of the year. Otherwise, I find myself in the situation where I have to speed through huge doorstopper books just so I avoid feeling like I failed. I’ve done a good job of keeping to that too. I had a much easier time with my reading challenges last year and I’m doing fine this year by making sure the longest and most difficult books were done by the end of October.

February is the month for relationships. Name your favorite book relationship: romantic, platonic, or familial, your choice!

the king of crows

The Diviners squad are a great crew. There are lots of great friendships among them. It’s hard to pick a favourite but I’m going to go with the friendship between Henry and Theta. They both support each other in their time of need and encourage each other to chase their dreams.

March is the month for luck and new beginnings. Name a book or series that you would like to re-experience as if you’d never read it.

abhorsen trilogy box set

Re-reading the Abhorsen trilogy recently made me remember how great it is. I kind of do wish I could forget all about it so I can experience it all over again.

April is a spectacularly ordinary month. Name a book that was so over-hyped that it just could not live up to your expectations.

cinderella is dead

I tried my best to get through it but I just couldn’t get over how many over-used tropes were present or how unsubtle the plot was.

May is the month when the flowers start to bloom. Name a book that was a pleasant surprise to you.

magic for liars

I picked this one up after I DNFed my previous choice. I had forgotten pretty much everything about this book, even why I added it to my TBR. I was pleasantly surprised indeed to find it enjoyable and original. In particular, I loved the take on the ‘Chosen One’ trope.

June is the time to take a break. Name a book or genre that you like to read when you just need to check out.

tea dragon society

This is an excellent chill-out read and as comforting as a warm mug of tea on a cold day!

July is the time to celebrate your independence! Name a book that made you see fireworks. (Figuratively. Please don’t light books on fire.)

reclaim the stars

Every one of these stories was a hit for me. I loved the characters, the world building and all the magic in every story. It was also a great introduction to Zoraida Cordova’s work.

And, July is my birthday month so the best present I’ve received so far has been the illustrated edition of The Ocean At The End of the Lane. It’s one of my favourite books and the illustrations were all gorgeous!

August is the hottest month of the year. Pick an up-and-coming author that you think will be the next hottest thing.

secret of haven point

I really hope Lisette Auton and The Secret of Haven Point get more attention in the future because they deserve it.

September is time for students to go back to school! Pick a book you read for school that you actually enjoyed.

knife of never letting goI read this in university and ended up loving it so much that I ended up finishing the series, even though we were only studying the first one.

October is time to celebrate Halloween! Pick one character that you would love to dress up as for Halloween.

I saw a lot of great Sophie cosplays at a Comic Con earlier in the year and it seems like a pretty comfortable and easy costume to get my hands on. I reckon I could crochet a good Calcifer doll too if I can find a pattern.

I tag anyone else who wants to look back on a year of book blogging.

I hope to see you again very soon.
