How I Choose My Books Tag

I saw the cool Kristin Kraves Books do this tag, and decided to do it myself. Thank you Kristin for sharing the tag! Make sure you all show her awesome blog some love and give her a follow!


1. Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up the  book in the first place?


I originally picked this book because I had seen so many positive reviews about it and I knew it had been good enough to be made in to a movie!

2. Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy but did. Why did you read it in the first place?


I had originally picked this out of a not so great line up on Blogging For Books and enjoyed it way more than I thought I would!

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 discovered this one from a post on Kerri Maniscalco’s (author of Stalking Jack The Ripper) Instagram! I am beyond excited to dive in to this ARC soon!

4. Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you. What did you think of it?


A friend in my book group, The Literary Piratesses (group intro post coming soon) recommended we read this together and I loved it! You can find my review here.

5. Pick a book you discovered through book blogs. Did it live up to the hype?


I had been seeing this on many blogs and TBR lists, so I knew I had to read it! It certainly did live up to its hype. Find my review here.

6. Find a book on your shelves with a one word title. What drew you to this book?


The promise of a steampunk Cinderella retelling is what drew me to this beautiful book!

7. What book did you discover through a film/TV adaptation?


I remember seeing the television movie on TNT years ago and I fell in love with the story and the world!

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 read this one in High School as a required reading book, and I loved it more than I thought i would.


The Literary Piratesses (my IG book group) decided to read the Six of Crows duology together, and this one stuck with me more than any other book this year.


I had chosen this from Blogging For Books not knowing that I would love it so much!


Besides the steampunk aspects, this retelling trumped the original and taught young girls that they don’t have to rely on live to be happy!

  2. Woot tag! I’ll write this one up for a post later in the week! ❤

    SIX OF CROWS HAS BEEN ON MY LIST FOREVER! I HAVE read Smoke & Bone, though, so I'm really anxious to get to it. EVERYONE loves it. 😀
