Hello!!! Taking advantage of my last night at home, and just having been nominated for this tag by Ashley @Dear World…, I decided that I should so it now, otherwise it would have to wait until Christmas. Thank you Ashley!!! 😀
(oh, I almost missed posting today…)
1. Find a book for each of your initials.
Crown of Midnight
A Court of Thorns and Roses
2. Count your age along your bookshelf – which book is it?
Oh, I’m old! I’m 31, so… Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.
3. Pick a book set in your city/state/country.
Os Maias by Eça de Queirós. I think this is currently the only book I own that goes on in Portugal.
4. Pick a book that represents a destination you would love to travel to.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher‘s Stone by JK Rowling, I mean, who wouldn’t want to travel to Hogwarts?!
5. Pick a book that’s your favorite color.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I love this book colour! This is not my favorite colour in general, but it is on this cover.
6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
As Sete Filhas De Eva or The Seven Daughters of Eve by Bryan Sykes. I read this book when I was young and it quite literally changed my life. It’s a non-fiction, in case you’re wondering, and it’s about Mitochondrial DNA (mostly) and how we can trace all our lineages back to Africa and I read it and I knew that I wanted to be involved in this for life. So, I decided I wanted to do Genetics and Human Populations… and I am!
7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin. This book took me so long, I just wasn’t feeling the characters and I was always getting lost with the names… but I did it!
8. Which book in your TBR pile will you give the biggest sense of accomplishment when you finish it?
Probably The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien! And then The Lord of The Rings trilogy… it’s been in my TBR forever.
I tag EVERYONE! This was fun 😀

This is such a cool and unique tag! I think I may take up you “Everyone” tag… Great post!
😉 it’s a fun one
I’m going to do this.
Nice post, too. I’m reading Clash of Kings now and it is taking me so long to finish it!
I’m reading Clash of Kings too and I’ve been reading it since LAST YEAR and I’ve still not finished it.
it took me a LONG time too! it’s so dense
It is!! I’m 200 pages in and I’m just like- when will you END
LOL! YES!!!! i literally forced myself to finish it, but then I tried to pick up the third one and that one is still waiting… more… it has been for about 2 years
OMG!!! I totally understand. I will probably try to finish as many of my other books before I pick this series up again!
that’s probably wise. they are definitely not easy to get through
I think I am going to do this too … now if only I knew some books that started with K lol
Not even if you ignore the “the” s and “a” s?
Okay then I have the Kite Runner and I suppose I can always just use a book that I want to read like Kiss of Deception or The Knife of Never Letting Go.
ok, that’s looking a bit more promising
Is there anyone who wouldn’t want to go to Hogwarts?? Okay I’m sure there is but I have a hard time believing it haha
i would have a hard time believing that too 😀
Great tag! I think I might take up the opportunity of “everyone is tagged”, haha.
oh, please do 😉 it’s a fun one
Lovely answers! And you really need to read The Hobbit! It’s amazing and you will feel great that you finished it!

I know I need to!!! I’m just so scared to read it… the hype has been there for a LONG time 🙂
Haha, I understand your feelings about JRR Tolkien. I did manage to read The Hobbit the year the movie came out, but I still haven’t got to The Lord of the Rings!
I think I’m afraid of all the hype, you know? 😉
