Three Bookish Things Tag

This was so fun!! A big thanks to Georgia over at the lovely Lost In Neverland – you can find her answers to the tag here (she has a great taste). I’ve had a look at various takes on this tag but I can’t find any that credit an original creator or any rules, so I guess the usual just apply. Nominate whoever you want and make sure you mention who nominated you – if you’d like to have a go, let me know in the comments and I’ll add your site to the list.

The Prompts

3 Characters I Love.
It takes me a while to love (and then subsequently become obsessed with) a character, but my most longstanding favourites are Baz Pitch from Carry On, Kaz Brekker from Six Of Crows and Remus Lupin from Harry Potter.

3 Book Goals For the Year.
I want to: only buy more books when I don’t have too many left on my physical tbr pile; read 80 books and read more queer and indie literature.

I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to complete the first one, but I had gotten into a really irritating cycle where I was overwhelmed with books… but at the same time had so many more I wanted to read!! My other goal is to reach 500 followers by the end of 2021 – if you could help me achieve that by liking, following or sharing I’d be very grateful.

3 Current Favourite Covers.
I think the more I love a book the prettier the cover becomes because I can look at them and get ✨serotonin✨. But based purely on aesthetic, I love:

3 Weirdest Things I’ve Used For Bookmarks.
I love this prompt! Honestly, it’s hard to narrow it down to three but I’m a big believer in if it can fit in the book, use it. I’m talking tissues, bus tickets, hair brushes, even shoes. But if I think I’ll like the book and want to save the spine then I’ll use a proper bookmark!

3 Read Once and Loved Authors.
These are authors I’ve read one book by and really want to read more. Some of them don’t have other books out, or I just need to find their others, but you can click on the image to find my reviews!

3 Titles I’ve Watched but Not Read
I can’t think of a lot! I try and read the book before watching an adaptation, but there’s a few tv series that I watched before knowing they were based on comics. I really want to try the Umbrella Academy and I Am Not Okay With This graphic novels to see how much changed.

3 Series I have Binged.
In quite literally the last few months:

3 Favourite Authors.
Ahhh I feel like I’m always going on about the same books and the same authors… but they’re my favourite for a reason. These are authors I will gladly ditch whatever I’m currently reading for, and will be endlessly recommending their books to my friends:

  • Becky Albertalli
  • Leigh Bardugo
  • Holly Black

3 Unpopular Bookish Opinions.
I don’t know how necessarily unpopular this is, but I’m a firm believer that you need to separate the art from the artist. Whatever an author’s wrongdoings are, you shouldn’t not read a series because the author is problematic and it doesn’t feed into the book. If the book and the author are problematic then it’s a bit different but I think it’s a shame that some people refuse to read brilliant series because of the authors’ mistakes.

Also, an author not naming a characters’ sexuality isn’t an example of biphobia or panphobia?? I’ve seen some criticisms of Carry On saying that Rainbow Rowell needs to give Simon a label but I don’t agree.

Lastly, hardback books always feel nicer to read than paperback books. They’re more expensive but worth it. What do you think? Let me know in the commments!

I Nominate

Published by Hundreds&Thousands

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.

  1. Great post and I loved reading your answers! It was fun to read about your favourite characters – Kaz is certainly an interesting character and I really like Lupin as well. I must admit though that I prefer paperbacks haha. Thank you so much for the tag!
