My Life in Books Book Tag!

Hey everyone! It’s finally the weekend. It’s also finally another tag. I am going to try to do at least one a week if I can. Today I am doing the My Life in Books Tag. I’ve been wanting to do this for sometime now. I was nominated by the amazing Analee @ Book Snacks. You should check out her amazing blog with it’s unique set up 🙂 Without further ado, let’s get going.


1) Find a Book For Each of Your Initials

(M)

(D)

2) Count Your Age Along Your Bookshelf. What book is it?

That would be 14 so Four by Veronica Roth

3) Pick a Book set in your City/State/Country

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of the hundreds of thousands of books set in the United States which is where I live. A famous/well known book is set in my state but I don’t want to give that away.

4) Pick a Book That Represents a Destination You Would Love To Travel To.

I want to go to many places so I will show three books and/or series.

1) The Harry Potter series is set in London, England. I want to go to London one day for several reasons.

2) Smile by Raina Telgemeier is set in California. Believe it or not, I have yet to go to California.

3) The Ask Amy Green series by Sarah Webb is set in Ireland. I really want to go to Ireland because I am some part Irish and would love to see the land and life.
5) Pick a Book That’s Your Favorite Color
I love most colors but these are my favorites:

I love the color Blue!

I love the color Purple!

6) Which Book Do You Have The Fondest Memory Of?

I have loved lots of books and book series. One of them is the Little Critter picture book series by Mercer Mayer. I can remember reading these many times and smiling at the Little Critter’s silly antics.

 

7) Which Book Did You Have The Most Difficulty Reading?

I can’t remember exactly when I read these but the A to Z mysteries really scared me for some reason. I’m a huge scaredy cat and didn’t end up finishing the series.

8) What Book In Your TBR Pile Will Give You The Biggest Sense of Accomplishment When You Finish It?

I will feel super accomplished when I finish the Divergent series. I have to finish the last two books.


That’s all. I absolutely enjoyed this tag and hope more like it will surface. That is why I am tagging EVERYONE who wants to participate!

Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for more tags 🙂

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday and an amazing Black Friday today! I’m bringing you another book review. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to be exact!

Name: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

untitled

Author: J.K. Rowling

# of pages: 734

My rating: 5/5 stars

Goodreads Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Amazon Rating: 4.8/5 stars


Goodreads Summary:

The summer holidays are dragging on and Harry Potter can’t wait for the start of the school year. It is his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and there are spells to be learnt and (unluckily) Potions and Divination lessons to be attended. But Harry can’t know that the atmosphere is darkening around him, and his worst enemy is preparing a fate that it seems will be inescapable …With characteristic wit, fast-paced humour and marvellous emotional depth, J.K. Rowling has proved herself yet again to be a master story-teller


My Thoughts:

I could not believe how much action was packed into 734 pages. J.K. Rowling seems to love to add plot twists into the last few chapters. There were some pretty terrifying moments in this book. I won’t spoil anything for those who haven’t read it, but it gets intense. I was on edge most of the time wondering what was going to happen next. I absolutely recommend this book and series who loves amazing characters, plot twists, action, and lots of adventure!


That wraps up my book review on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for many more book reviews to come.
