A shoutout and thank you to Darque Dreamer for hitting ya boy with a tag.
It was created by The Bookish Underdog, and now it’s time to add my own touch to it!
1. Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover.
What made you pick up the book in the first place?
Once again, I did not read the synopsis or the genre when choosing to read this novel. Didn’t when I picked it up either.
Based of the cover, I said, “…..I need it”, so I got it. Boom!
2. Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy but did.
Why did you read it in the first place?
I looked at the cover. I like. I read the synopsis. I kind of liked. I read it. I enjoyed.
That’s how I see it. The MC is a spy. C’mon now, that’s pretty automatic for me to read.
3. Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick up a book at random.
How did you discover this book?
I keep trying to tell y’all my memory is absolute trash.
I don’t know when I found this book, but I know for sure that I picked it up based on the cover. Look it at. It’s beautiful.
4. Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you.
What did you think of it?
One of my all time favorite novel right here. First book I ever put up there with the Harry Potter series.
It’s that good.
5. Pick a book you discovered through book blogs.
Did it live up to the hype?
It most definitely did! First book I read in years with a Black MC.
It felt super relatable and real from what I know growing up.
6. Find a book on your shelves with a one word title.
What drew you to this book?
Cover is nice and I’m a rebel at heart.
I could not pass up a book on rebels rebelling. My nature wouldn’t permit.
7. What book did you discover through a film/TV adaptation?
Taking it back to the OG’s. This movie led me to find the book, which then led me to become the reader I am today.
I remember it so vividly…..*wipes away nostalgic tears*.
8. Think of your all-time favorite books.
When did you read these and why did you pick them up in the first place?
I mentioned Harry Potter and The Mysterious Benedict Society, so all I’m left with is the first Percy Jackson book.
I literally just found this in the library one day, which I stole might I add. Don’t judge me. I know I didn’t have to tell, but y’all don’t have to judge either so ha!
About two weeks later the movie aired. I had good timing. Still have that same book today *memories*.
