Fun for Monday: The Addams Family Tag

This is another tag I owe to the marvellous Zeezee and which was created by booktuber Hannah Tay. I couldn’t resist an Addams Family themed tag, even if I tried. I remember watching the tv show when I was a kid and the films with Anjelica Houston and Raul Julia in my very early teens. I loved and continue to love both. So this tag seems the perfect way to kick off my participation in Spooktastic Reads 2021. Woo!   Morticia Addams – mother and witch: your favourite witch book? I know I should answer with something creepy, as befits the … Continue reading Fun for Monday: The Addams Family Tag

Fun for Monday: The Evil Cat Tag

This tag was created by Peat Long and Para over at To Other Worlds, and it made me snort-laugh while on public transport. It’s best if I leave Peat to introduce this tag: “Well, here it is. Ten wonderful cues to talk about books, all based on the time your cat was so far from wonderful they couldn’t have found it even if it smelled of tuna.”   (For the record, we do not have a cat. Cats hate me and the feeling is usually mutual. Saying that, I have a healthy respect for any creature channelling that much pure … Continue reading Fun for Monday: The Evil Cat Tag

Fun for Monday: The Count to 10 with Me Tag

Tags are wonderful things. They make me think of appetisers, used to whet the appetite without spoiling the main meal. Certainly, that’s how I’m using them right now. Answering random questions about books and other things allows me to burble on about whatever’s on my mind without feeling pressured into coherence. It’s strangely therapeutic. I saw this tag over at Zeezee’s about a month ago. She in turn found it over on Kristin Kraves Books and it was created by booktuber the Bumbling Blogger’s partner, Sean.   And so, without further ado … three … two … one … go!!   First book … Continue reading Fun for Monday: The Count to 10 with Me Tag

Fun for Monday: Good to Meetcha *Original Tag*

I made a tag! In my continuing quest to retrieve my bloggy mojo, this seemed like a good idea. Time will tell, eh?   I hate the usual “what do you do?” and “where are you from?” questions that normally get fired out upon making a new acquaintance. The answers invariably fail to give me any sense of the person I’m talking to, and feel … judge-y. So this tag is about the things I actually want to know when I first meet a new person (specifically, the ones I want to be friends with). (I know I should insert … Continue reading Fun for Monday: Good to Meetcha *Original Tag*

Fun for Monday: Dreamy Book Covers

As this blue mood of mine doesn’t seem to be shifting, I thought I’d try to inspire myself with a tag about one of my favourite things: book covers. Not much talking going on here, just a few visual delights. This is another tag I found via the wonderful Zeezee, and it was created by Tiana the Book Raven, who I’ve linked to below because there are… …RULES: Thank the person who tagged you and spread the love. (I wasn’t tagged, but thank you Zeezee for always finding such excellent tags). Mention the creator of this tag: Tiana @ The … Continue reading Fun for Monday: Dreamy Book Covers

Fun for Monday: Anything but Books

I found this tag over at Zeezee’s last week (I’m sure I’ve said it before, but Zeezee is the queen of tags and I love her for it, as well as for her awesome self!), and thought it was perfect for my current not-quite-back-in-the-bloggy-game mood. It was created by booktuber ReadorRot. Let’s get these questions answered!   Name a cartoon that you love We’re currently working our way through That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, an anime series which is pretty funny. I used to love the Animaniacs, and I saw somewhere that they’re making/have made a comeback … Continue reading Fun for Monday: Anything but Books

Fun for Monday: Quick Fire Fantasy Books

Tammy did this tag just the other day and it was too tempting to ignore. It was originally created by Jo The Bookworm Dreamer whose responses, along with Tammy’s, only added to my already-quite-large-enough-thank-you TBR. (Reader problems, eh? *grins hugely*). Anyway, let’s see Wyrd and Wonder out with a wave and a smile, and some rapid-fire responses to Jo’s prompts …   5 Star Book:   What’s that? I’m getting repetitive? Well, I don’t read as fast as some of you and when I like something I do tend to go on and on and on … I don’t think … Continue reading Fun for Monday: Quick Fire Fantasy Books

Desert Island Reads (a Wyrd & Wonder tag/challenge/prompt)

  This is a very special Wyrd and Wonder tag/challenge/prompt created by our one and only imyril, because she’s the frigging BEST!! I’ve quoted the rules directly from her post, below, and while I can’t force anyone to do this, I will hunt you down if you don’t.   Just kidding. *snorts with laughter*   The Rules: Desert Island Discs – the classic BBC radio show that inspired this post – allows players to take eight musical tracks (not albums!), a single book (plus the complete works of Shakespeare and the Bible or a more appropriate religious/philosophical book of choice as a … Continue reading Desert Island Reads (a Wyrd & Wonder tag/challenge/prompt)

Fun for Monday: The Never Have I Ever Tag

This was created by Madame Writer/Anne with a Book and I was tagged (I was tagged! Yay!) by the fabulous Zeezee. The rules are as follows: Link back to the original creator. (Done). Link back to the person who tagged you. (Double done). Answer all prompts. (Done done done). Add one more prompt of your own. (This was the hardest part, but also done). Tag at least five people. (Done, below). Don’t lie. (What would be the point?)   Never have I ever… read a later book in a series before reading the first book. Annoyingly, I’ve done this a few … Continue reading Fun for Monday: The Never Have I Ever Tag

Fun for Monday: 3 Bookish Things

Right, let’s get this year’s tag count up, shall we? I found this tag over at Zeezee’s and she got it from Kristin Kraves Books. I’ve mentioned before that Zeezee is my go-to-gal for tags and she has an awesome Long List of Book Tags here that you can view either as a straight list, or organised by theme, which is just perfect. Thank you, Zeezee, for being so very, very fabulous! So without further ado, let’s talk about bookish things. In threes.   3 Read-Once-and-Loved Authors Octavia E Butler. Wow. Maryam the Curious SFF Reader and I recently did a … Continue reading Fun for Monday: 3 Bookish Things
