New Year’s Resolution Book Tag

Hiya! Happy Sunday! EmbuhleeLiest created this tag along with Shivii @browneyedmusings– so thank you to Embuhlee for tagging me! Since it won’t count as the new year for much longer, I thought I’d better do this sooner rather than later.

Get in shape – name a book that doesn’t quite fit on your shelf correctly

greek vases boardmanPhysically, my old Classics and Archaelogy textbooks don’t fit brilliantly. I can’t actually decide whether to get rid of them or not. They’re a bit hefty and I’m not too fond of them- but obviously, like any utterly useless academic books, they were very overpriced, so I’m a little reluctant to part with them. Maybe I should sell them… Any takers? :p

Eat healthy – name a book you feel was good for you to read

letters to auntie foriLetters to Auntie Fori– I don’t usually read non-fiction, but this was a really good way of reading a history book without getting bored. It’s set up as letters, so it’s really easy to read and in nice manageable instalments.

Read more – name a book you keep telling yourself to read but haven’t yet

King-of-SchnorrersI’m gonna go with the King of Schnorrers because I’ve heard it’s hilarious and it’s just been staring at me from my mum’s bookshelf for years- I keep planning to pick it up but I for some reason I haven’t.

Quit smoking – name a book you kept going back to even though you had finished it

carry onCarry On– I just could not help myself with this book. It’s just so incredible.

Save more money – name a book you got for a really good price

vampire lestatI get a lot of books really cheaply, so it’s hard to know which one to choose- I got a copy of The Vampire Lestat at a charity shop for about a £1 I think.

Be more organized – how do you organize your bookshelf?

Ermm… I’m really not organised is the short answer. I used to be, but I’ve moved recently, so my books are all over the place now. A lot of my books aren’t even on bookshelves, they’re in boxes.

Be punctual – shortest time and longest time it took you to read a book

snow like ashesThe shortest time recently is Snow Like Ashes. No matter what I may have said about it in my review, I cannot deny that it was a quick read. I just whizzed through it. By contrast it took me *ages* to read Captain Corelli’s Mandolin cos it was so unbelievably boring. It’s only a few hundred pages and it literally took me weeks.

Go out more – what book made you isolate yourself from the outside world?

daughter of smoke and boneWell, I couldn’t focus on reality for ages while I was reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It was just completely absorbing.

Be unique – what was your favorite book of 2015?

memoirs of a geishaThis is pretty hard- I could very easily pick Carry On or We Were Liars but I think Memoirs of a Geisha is most likely to stay with me for the longest time.

Be more personal – what book are you waiting for most this year?

The sequel to Vicious!!!

Really, resolutions? – what book do you promise to read next year?

demon kingThe Demon King because I meant to read it last year, and it’s sitting right in front of me just waiting to be read!
