Try A Chapter

I’ve seen the Try a Chapter Tag on YouTube a few times now, and I was really inspired to try it for myself. I usually decide which book I’m going to read before I start reading though, so I’ve never found the right moment for it. But “Try 3 Chapters, Then Pick One to Continue” was a prompt in last month’s Biannual Bibliothon, so this was the perfect chance to give it a go.

I picked out Stolen Songbird, Gilded Cage and Pantomime to try. Here’s my initial reaction to each.

I spotted this over at Kayla’s Book Nook and just couldn’t resist the chance to browse through some of my favourite covers. You can check out her post here and the original video, by Book Syrup overย on YouTube, here. If you fancy answering it, consider yourself tagged.

What’s your favourite book cover?ย Do coversย influence which books you buy?

The (Birthday) Cake Book Tag

I couldn’t think of a way to answer today’s Top Ten Tuesday that wasn’t really similar to a recent prompt so — since it’s my birthday later this month — I thought I’d give this a go. Keep an eye on the blog later this month, because I’m planning aย preorder giveaway to celebrate.

I think the originally tag came from Cait at PaperFury but kudos also goes to Heather at The Sassy Book Geek for giving it a birthday twist.

The Books and Makeup Tag

This is a really fun, quick tag I saw Alexa Donne recently revive over on her YouTube channel. You can also check out the original video fromย sarawithoutanH. The videos for this tag are great fun to watch as the BookTubers are all doing their own makeup while answering the questions. Go check it out if you’re looking to kill an hour or two.

If you make your own version of this tag, I’d love to see it. Feel free to leave me a link to check out down in the comments. (more…)
