Well, it seems like the perfect time for this tag! This is a book tag I first saw on Aria’s blog @ Book Nook Bits and thought I would give it a try.
What are you currently reading?
I am reading The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta, I started reading it this morning and am already 100 pages in! I’m enjoying it so far.
What’s your favourite “can’t leave the house” activity?
The obvious answer for this would be reading, but I would also say video gaming, as I often end up getting into it for a few weeks and spending a lot of time on the Xbox!
A book you’ve been meaning to read forever?
There are several books that I’ve wanted to read for a long time, but I would say My Heart Goes Bang by Keris Stainton has been at the top of the list for a few years now. I like that it’s set at university, and I’m hoping to buy it soon, I just haven’t got around to it yet.
An intimidating book on your TBR?
I managed to get through a couple of the most intimidating books in my TBR this year, which included Wolf Hall and For Whom the Bell Tolls. Now I would probably say Americanah, as it’s a big book and I know I want to give myself the time to enjoy it!
Top three priority books on your TBR?
I have some books bought earlier on in the year that I would like to read by the end of this year, which include Half a World Away by Mike Gayle, The Fallen Children by David Owen and The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo.
Recommend a short book
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson was one of the shorter books I read this year, and it was one of my favourites which I would highly recommend if you haven’t already read it.
Recommend a long book
I don’t read that many long books, however I did read The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X.R. Pan in August and it was a fantastic, emotional read.
What’s something you’d love to do while your stuck at home?
I would like to do some of the boring tasks that I don’t get around to as much as I like to, like deep cleaning the flat! I like to put a film on in the background and just get on with it, and feel satisfied at the end when it’s all done.
What do you plan on reading next?
I’m hoping to read The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave, however I think it’s going to be gory and I’m a little sensitive to that kind of stuff at the moment. So I may read The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker by Lauren James instead.
