First Lines Fridays {1}

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Top 5 Wednesday | Books I’ve Read Because of BookTube

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey and Samantha. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and you list your top 5 books related to the particular topic. This weeks topic is: Books You’ve Read Because of Booktube/Blogging/etc. – Discuss the books you’ve picked up because you’ve heard of them in the online book community or platform you use.

Before I got more involved in the online book community, I got ALL of my book recommendations from BookTube. Here are just a few that left a strong impression on me, good and bad. You can guess which ones were a winner and which ones failed to impress me haha!

OMG This Song Book Tag

Bonjour mes amis! Comment ça va?

I have a tag for you guys today and I am SOOOOO excited for it. I was searching the almighty, Internet, for book tags (as if I don’t already have a million tags to do) when I came across the OMG This Song Book Tag. It was created by the lovely Kate over at Katesbookdate and all you have to do is answer the questions/prompts with a book and a song. Now, I’ve decided to do 2 songs per prompt because I just couldn’t help myself. There couldn’t be a more perfect book tag for me tbh, so without further ado, let’s get started!

Burn, Rewrite or Reread Book Tag

Bonjour mes amis! Comment ça va?

Today I have the Burn, Rewrite or Reread book tag, which was officially made by Lauren Ann over at Youtube (video here). I was tagged by the lovely Dorka over at Berries and Books! Make sure to go check out her blog because it is amazing! The rules for this tag are pretty simple. First, write down a couple of books and pick out three. Then, choose which one you’d burn, which one you’d rewrite and which you’d reread. And that’s about it. So without further ado, let’s get started!
