Becca’s Life in Books

When I found this book tag online, I thought it would be a great way for Abarna and I to do a quasi-meet-the-bloggers-type-post! This tag is called “My Life in Book Tags,” and we hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit about us through our answers!
Note: you can click on the book images to find more information about each book.

1. Find a book for each of your initials.

B – Band Sinister by KJ Charles

A – Alice Isn’t Dead by Joseph Fink

A – American Hippo by Sarah Gailey

I contemplated using the initial from my full first name, but I wasn’t about to pass up having “B” stand for Band Sinister ❤️ .

2. Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?

28 – Mariel of Redwall by Brian Jacques

While I was a total Harry Potter kid when I was young, I was ALSO a diehard Redwall kid, and I honestly think that, between the two, it was the series closer to my soul. And Mariel of Redwall specifically is near and dear to my heart, it’s been one of my favourite books in the series since I read it.

3. Choose a book set in your city or country.

One Enchanted Tunelight by Carole Paikin Miller

We got this book from a family friend when I was a kid, and I found it both amazing and weird to read a book that was set in my hometown and see it mention landmarks I was familiar with, lol.

4. Choose a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to.

Cornwall – Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper

I’ve wanted to visit the Cornwall area of England for aaaages, and while I don’t think this book is the only reason for that (I have family that live in Cornwall, Canada, so I’ve always thought visiting the “original” would be fun), but it definitely cemented the idea in my head.

5. Choose a book that’s your favourite colour.

Dark Red (Maroon, Burgundy, etc.) – The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine

Oh man, I don’t even know how many times I’ve read this book over the years ❤️ (it’s been a while since the last time though, maybe it’s time for another re-read… lol)

7. What book did you have the most difficulty reading?

Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor

It didn’t stay difficult, but it took me a while to get used to actually reading and visually processing a writing style that I was far more accustomed to listening to.

8. Which book in your TBR pile will give you biggest sense of accomplishment when you finish it?

Making Witches: Newfoundland Traditions of Spells and Counterspells by Barbara Rieti

I don’t think this will be a difficult read, but I tend to struggle to get through non-fiction books, even when they’re about topics I have an actual interest in, so every non-fiction book I read all the way through is an accomplishment to me, haha.

And that’s a little about me! Abarna will publish her tag next Saturday, and our next review will go up on the same day – so stayed tuned! Until then…
