The Stuck At Home Book Tag // AKA a quarantine reflection โฐ

Hey popcorns! ๐Ÿฟ

It is totally not 10pm while I am writing this… Welcome back to the second tag of this very un-official tag week.

How are you all keeping? Yesterday was crazyy and any change of me posting a tag just went poof which means you’ll be seeing me on Sunday too… disappointing news? I understand ๐Ÿ˜…

IMPORTANT: The formatting in this post took so long so Iโ€™d appreciate if you could view my post through my blog on a web browser, you can do this by clicking right HERE, yes it is as simple as that โค๏ธ

I feel like I should have done this tag earlier when we were still in lockdown but it also gives me a just chance to do a quarantine reflection so buckle up buttercups because my quarantine was one heck of a ride! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was tagged by the sweetest (her comments melt my heart and her blog is a WHOLE new aesthetic) Ash @ Starlight Strands to do the Stay At Home Book Tag (don’t you just love book tags?!) You can go check out her answers right here or you can keep on scrolling for mine! โ™ฅ

– Q U E S T I O N S –

โ˜… What are you currently reading? โ˜…

Kid Got Shot : Simon Mason (author) : 9781910989142 : Blackwell's

I have. too. many. library. books. out!! No really, I do. It’s crazy, I own so many book that I really need to read but no instead I just end up reading library books ๐Ÿ˜•

I read the first book called Running Girl but I just can’t get into this one for the life of me. I have never DNF’ed a book but I’m pretty tempted to… all the Goodreads reviews I’ve read give it four stars! It’s barely scraping a one star for me ๐Ÿ˜

Can someone just steal my library card away from me? Please? I’ll pay you in books… ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ˜… What’s your favourite can’t-leave-the-house-activity? โ˜…

  • Reading ๐Ÿ“– I loved how much I was reading in lockdown, I’d sail not literally of course through books in sometimes less than 2 days!
  • Writing ๐Ÿ“ Not only did I do the 15 Day Writing Challenge but I’ve been doing a lot of character and plot mapping for my Wattpad novel so that definitely kept me busy.
  • Home workouts ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ Quarantine got me seriously addicted to exercise, I was such a lazy potato very un-active person before it and now I can’t imagine my life without it!
  • Watching Netflix ๐Ÿ“บ Where would my life be without this glorious invention? I’m kidding! We all like to treat ourselves to A LOT a few TV binge sessions once in a while so that I did.

โ˜… A book you’ve been meaning to read forever? โ˜…

All The Bright Places (Hardcover) By Jennifer Niven : Target

It is CRAZY how long I’ve been meaning to read this book, I even own a copy which is what amazes me and now the Netflix film has come out I thought it would motivate me but one day you all ๐Ÿ˜‚

Is it actually a good book though? I’ve heard a fair amount of bad reviews for this book so if you’ve read this then drop a comment below! ๐Ÿ˜Š

โ˜… An intimidating book on your tbr? โ˜…

Books - Leigh Bardugo | Author

Before everyone starts yelling AKA extensive use of caps in the comments I just want to say that I LOVED Six Of Crows and Crooked Kingdom but it took me so long to get into Leigh’s writing style.

I was SO excited to see it in the library’s new books section but also kind of worried that I wouldn’t like it?!

If you’e read it please let me know your thoughts ๐Ÿ˜

โ˜… Top three priority books on your tbr? โ˜…

The Truth About Keeping Secrets ๐Ÿ— I have owned this book for an insanely not crazy long time and I just want to read it now and make sure it doesn’t collect more dust….

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder ๐Ÿ’€ My best friend read this and said it was amazing and I somehow read a lot of books about murder? It’s not purposeful I promise…

Pumpkins Heads ๐ŸŽƒ Before you all kill me thereโ€™s a lot of murder going on here ๐Ÿ˜‚ I do not support Rainbow Rowell at all I just love her books so much! Fangirl is, well, words arenโ€™t close enough ๐Ÿฅบ

โ˜… Recommend a short strange book? โ˜…

I donโ€™t read short books so I had to improvise here ๐Ÿคซ

This book is SO WEIRD! Honestly at some pints I was like how the heck did the author even come up with this idea?

Itโ€™s one of those books where you have to stick with it because otherwise you just miss out on the ending and no-one wants that ๐Ÿ˜–

As soon as I came to terms with the plot I did start really enjoying the book so be patient, keep calm and read on ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ˜… Recommend a long book? โ˜…

What would I be if not predictable? I understand that there are some weird people out there who generally donโ€™t like Harry Potter. No, Iโ€™m okay with that. Really, Iโ€™m fine.

No Iโ€™m joking, fair play to you for being honest and not pretending you like it to fit in ๐Ÿ˜‰ The HP (not the sauce) books were so long. Good, but long. I donโ€™t read a lot of long books though?

Long books are a massive turn off for me (yes I am attracted to books) so I generally wonโ€™t be gravitated towards them if Iโ€™m browsing in a library which I do way too often ๐Ÿคญ

โ˜… Something youโ€™d like to do you did while stuck at home? โ˜…

  • Learn Italian ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น I had such high hopes for this at the start of quarantine but 1 too many we miss you, please come back! Duolingo notifications and I gave up ๐Ÿ˜‚
  • Glowed up my room โœจ Iโ€™m so happy with my room now, it truly reflects who I am as a person and I spend so much time in here that it should be a comfortable space ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Came back to blogging ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Obviously this was a big one. Coming back to blogging was one of the best decisions I made myself, itโ€™s honestly been a blast every since I re-joined and everyone welcomed me with open arms!

โ˜… What do you plan on reading next? โ˜…

Of course Iโ€™m not actually reading the books on my priority TBR… ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

The Rest Of Us Just Live Here ๐ŸŒƒ I feel like I just need to read this book because I talk a lot about reading it but just never seem to get round to doing it so Iโ€™m definitely reading it once Iโ€™ve finished my current book.

Wilder Girls ๐ŸŒท The cover art is gorgeous! I recently picked this up at ANOTHER library trip so I hope Iโ€™ll enjoy it, Iโ€™m pretty sure I saw a blogger do a review but I canโ€™t remember for the life of me who it was ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

– N O M I N A T I O N –

In no particular order I nominate…

El @ Elated Books (no pressure, itโ€™s not like youโ€™re the only blogger I nominated ๐Ÿ˜)

Itโ€™s now 11:30pm but that is what happens when you decide to write a blog post late at night, I hope you all enjoyed this (I spent extra time on graphics ๐Ÿ˜‚) and I will see you all tomorrow at a hopefully more reasonable time ๐Ÿ˜–

What was the shortest/strangest book youโ€™ve ever read? Did you get up to a lot in lockdown? Did you agree with some of my answers?

Thatโ€™s a wrap, see you all soon! โ˜บ๏ธ

  1. yes Iโ€™m attracted to books ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Sorry Iโ€™m so late on this I have so many posts to catch up on ๐Ÿ™ˆ I totally agree with king of scars being intimidation AND NOW THEREโ€™S ANOTHER ONE *lemme go hide*
    I actually didnโ€™t like all the bright places – just not really for me, a bit too John Greeny I much more preferred holding up the universe
    Thanks for the tag ๐Ÿ’ž

  2. I LOVED All The Bright Places the first time I read it and had the mixed feelings when I reread it for a second time?? It’s absolutely a beautiful book though and I’d definitely recommend giving it a go โค

    1. Great to know! I definitely want to get reading it soon… oh no Iโ€™m sorry to hear that! Thanks so much for dropping by Gracie ๐Ÿ’•

  3. Your quarantine reflection is not dissimilar to mine! I exercised and read quite a big ๐Ÿ‘ Hmm, the weirdest book Iโ€™ve ever read is this novel called We All Looked Up. Itโ€™s about people living their life to fullest before the asteroid comes but it probably wasnโ€™t the best idea to read this book in the beginning days of quarantine๐Ÿ˜‚
    I love that you did a 15 day writing challenge and I feel inspired to do that too. Hahha, love that reference ( if you were meaning to make it) though, I still havenโ€™t seen a rebel without a cause.
    Congratulations on the tag ๐Ÿ‘

    1. Thatโ€™s great! ๐Ÿฅฐ Yay, quarantine twinsies ๐Ÿ™‚
      Yes I got that book out from the library a year or so ago!! It was a really weird book, I honestly donโ€™t think I finished it? Or maybe thatโ€™s just my memory playing up ๐Ÿ˜‚ Omg no that must have scared you, that hits a little close to home!
      Awh thanks so much and omg you should do it! You donโ€™t have to do mine *uhm* no Iโ€™m kidding but I also did a PROโ€™s and CONโ€™s post about it so you can check that out if you need persuading ๐Ÿฅฐ 100% and me neither… thereโ€™s always a cause!
      Thanks so much Lucy ๐Ÿ˜

      1. Thanks and I think Iโ€™m gonna follow your challenge cause Iโ€™m too lazy to spend time online looking for another 15 day writing challenge when, I already have a perfect one here ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ
        Yep, some books are so weird and random๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธIt was definitely a bit scary reading that book during quarantine, idk what I was thinking lol

        1. Awhh Iโ€™ll look forward to seeing your short stories then and thanks so much for doing it! ๐Ÿฅฐ They really are, I can imagine with the whole situation ๐Ÿ˜…
