Halloween Book Tag: Costumes Included!

This is the Halloween Creatures Book Tag 2.0 as first hosted by Anthony@Keep Reading Forward. Trendy Simple Life and Jen Chaos Reviews both tagged me! Although I am not a huge fan of Halloween (to me its always cold and rainy and I would rather wear sweats), I love getting trick-or-treaters and have all the candy ready for their arrival!

If you make it through my whole post, as a reward I will share a few of my Halloween costumes.Read More »

Birthday Book Tag: December 11th

“They say it’s your birthday…” da da da da da da dun

Today is the day of my birth. We will leave age out of this: unless you tell me I am 27 again, than cool.

Danielle @ The Introverted Book Nerd blog celebrated her birthday yesterday – happy birthday! –  with a birthday book tag (check it out here), so I am joining in: us Sagittarians need to stick together. 😉

Here goes:
Count your Birthday along your bookshelf and then subtract your birth month:
11 – 12 gives me a negative number! So I am showing the last book I have on my shelf.
Two Turns from Zero
by Stacey Griffith, Senior Master SoulCycle instructor.

I received the book at a WeWork event Stacey was speaking at. I haven’t read it yet, but its on my 2018 TBR list. My love for SoulCycle is just as strong as diving into a really good book. I need both in my life.

If you could spend your birthday with any fictional character who would it be and why?
Peter Pan.

I want to go to Neverland and not have to be a grown up. I probably feel this more each birthday, so this question is fitting for today.

Find a book that takes place in the season you were born in:

“Technically I was born in the Fall since Winter doesn’t start til after my birthday, but to be honest, I always have snow on my birthday where I live so I’m going to say I was born in Winter.” was Danielle’s answer, and I completely agree.

When I was a child more likely than not my birthday parties were cancelled because of some stupid snowstorm! (I am apparently still bitter about this.)

25085329Back to the question, my answer is:
A Family Affair: Winter (Truth in Lies #6) by Mary Campisi

It was super easy to pick as Winter was right there in the title. (phew, I was thinking how was I supposed to remember actual seasons in the books I have already read and with my limited attention span well…I probably don’t have to answer that)

Find a book that is the color of your birthstone:
Falling Together by Marisa de los Santos.

Turquoise is a cool color. It reminds me of Summer, which reminds me of sunny days, which now reminds me of vacation and pina coladas…can you tell it snowed here yesterday?


Pick a book set in a time period, world, or country you would like to have been born in:

P.S. from Paris by Marc Levy, because Paris sounds so romantic.

I need to schedule a visit to Paris…after my vacation at a beach with pina coladas.


Thanks for reading! I look forward to reading yours on your birthday too: make sure you link back to me so I can see your answers.

Happy Monday!
