Hey, friends! We had fun with our last book tag that we looked for another that would be fun. We saw this one at the Literary Elephant and was originally created on YouTube by Marc Nash. We thought this one sounded different than the ones we’ve done before, so let’s go!
1. The last book you didn’t finish?
Amanda- These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong. I’ve been reading this book for like four months and I just can’t seem to finish it.
Antonia- The Ever Cruel Kingdom by Rin Chupeco. I’m not sure why for this one because I really liked the first book but I had so much trouble getting into this one.
2. The last book you re-read?
Amanda- I recently reread the first three books in the Pandava Quartet before reading the newly released fourth book in the series.
Antonia- Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. I finally got around to reading the second book but reread this one first to remember everything. I’m so glad I did, these books are so much fun.
3. The last book you bought?
Amanda- Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning.
Antonia- Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes by Roshani Chockshi.
4. The last book you said you read but you didnt?
Amanda- I’ve never done this…
Antonia- I’ve also never done this. It’s such a silly thing to lie about.
5. The last book you wrote in the margins of?
Amanda- Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth.
Antonia- Oh it’s been so long. I think the last one was probably Looking for Alaska by John Green.
6. The last book you had signed?
Amanda- In person? The last author event I went to before Covid shut the world down was Neal Schusterman for his book tour after The Toll was published.
Antonia- I’ve never been to a book signing but would love to have the chance.
7. The last book you lost?
Amanda- I don’t lose books. I let people borrow them and never get them back. But I’ve stopped doing that. So, I genuinely can’t remember.
Antonia- I’m really good about keeping track of my books though my husband leaves them in really weird places then forgets about it when he borrows them.
8. The last book you had to replace?
Amanda- I don’t think I’ve ever really had to replace a book, but if I find a cheap hardcover version of a book I own in paperback I’ll buy it and unhaul the paperback version. The last book I did this for was Furyborn by Claire Legrand.
Antonia- I don’t do this often but I have two copies of The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory. My originals got so worn that the covers were starting to come apart so I got another set.
9. The last book you had an argument over?
Amanda- I don’t argue over books, hah. I like to have good discussions but if it gets to an argument I will leave the conversation. So, I just had a bookclub meeting where we discussed Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth
Antonia- I don’t think I really argue about books either. I’m mostly talking to Amanda so we just have crazy in depth discussions that go off on wild tangents constantly.
10. The last book you couldn’t get ahold of?
Amanda- I can’t find the hardcovers of the first two books in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead anywhere.
Antonia- I honestly can’t think of any. But I don’t go out of my way to get special editions or make sure my covers match so it’s a lot easier for me.
We thought this was a fun tag! Consider yourself tagged if you’d like to participate too!
