I saw this floating around the blog-o-sphere and decided to give it a try. If anyone knows where it originated, let me know so I can credit them.
LAYING IN BED — a book you read in one day.
The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang. Prince Sebastian in in Paris so his parents can find him a bride. Sebastian, however, is looking for something else: someone who can sew him fabulous dresses. He finds that and more in the form of Frances, a talented designer who soon becomes his best friend.
I love this book. I read it on Wednesday night and it was delightful. I had only intended to read a chapter or two, but it was so good, I read through the whole thing all at once. Loved it.
SNACKING — a book that is a ‘guilty pleasure’ read.
I wouldn’t exactly call it as guilty pleasure read, but I frequently reread Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan by Vonda N. McIntyre and feel like I shouldn’t be. I love the movie novelizations so much and I read them probably more than I should.
NETFLIX — a series that you want to start.
I want to start reading the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare next. It’s on my TBR, but kind of far down.
DEEP CLEAN — a book that has been on your TBR for ages.
I’ve been meaning to read American Princess by Stephanie Marie Thornton for quite some time.
ANIMAL CROSSING — a book you recently bought because of the hype.
I don’t know if it was hype, exactly, because the author is the only one who’s really been talking about it, but I pre-ordered Pandemica by Jonathan Maberry as soon as I heard the trade was coming out.
PRODUCTIVITY — a book you learned from or had an impact on you.
Atomic Habits by James Clear had a big impact. It changed the way I though of habits and habit-building, and it made me more aware of the things I say about myself.
FACETIME — a book you were gifted.
Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca was a gift from my mother. It’s the true life tale of a female lawyer and detective living in New York and one of her most famous cases. I’ve set it aside for now, but it really is very interesting.
SELF-CARE — what is one thing you have done recently to look after yourself.
I’ve been trying to get back into running and working out more regularly.
BONUS — an upcoming release you are looking forward to.
I cannot wait for Two Rogues Make a Right by Cat Sebastian. I love her romances, and I’m excited to see these two characters, who’ve been on the periphery of the other two book sin the series, finally get together.
I tag everyone and anyone who wants to do this tag.
