I have some more nominations for the Sunshine Blogger Award sitting in my tags queue so it’s about time I got around to answering a few more of them. If you want to learn more about my general opinions on the worst books I’ve read, or the worst book-to-film adaptations I’ve seen, or get some recommendations for bookish blogs to check out then this is the post for you.
I was tagged by The Readers Bay and Destiny at Howling Libraries. Thank you both so much for your nominations, I had a lot of fun answering the questions you set and I hope you enjoy reading my answers.

You may have noticed I disappeared for the last two weeks. Where was I? Good question. I’m not sure what happened but I just suffered from a major slump and everything – blogging, reading, life in general – felt like a struggle. Still I’m back now, and slowly catching up on the posts I’ve missed over the past couple of weeks.
And what better way is there to get back into blogging than posting a book tag? Because let’s face it who doesn’t have an opinion on whether hardcovers or paperbacks are better, or on love triangles in general? I do, and I’m certain some people already know the answers to these questions I’m that outspoken about them. I was tagged by May at Forever and Everly. Thanks for the tag May, I had a lot of fun answering the questions for this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Book review are the main part of being a book blogger, and for most of us they’re probably connected in some way to the reason why we started blogging. I started blogging so I could talk to other people about the books I loved, and the best way to do that is through book reviews, but of all the posts people publish on their sites book reviews have the least traffic.
They’re also hard to write. If you’re anything like me you’ll leave your reviews to the very last minute when drafting new posts; you’ll write book tags, discussions and weekly memes first, or comment and blog hop before finally opening that blank document to write a review. Then before you know it your un-reviewed books have piled up and there’s a whole list you need to get through.
Why Are Reviews So Hard to Write and So Unpopular in the Blogging Community?

Oh well). I was tagged by The Orangutan Librarian. Thanks for the tag, I had a lot of fun answering the questions for this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

I rarely use them but I did have a lot of fun searching through all the different memes on Pinterest to pick which ones I was going to use in this tag, so maybe I should use them more.

I was tagged in the Court of Prythian Book Tag when A Court of War and Ruin was released, and it’s taken me so long to get around to it that in the meantime Sarah J. Maas has written and released A Court of Frost and Starlight. Given I will be posting my review of the latter tomorrow I figured now was the perfect time to take part in this tag.
I was tagged by Chelle at Chelle’s Book Ramblings. Thanks for the tag Chelle, I had a lot of fun answering the questions for this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Hated but am Really Glad I Read.
None, my answer for that question is none. I have not read one book that I hated but that, looking back, I’m glad I picked up. I decided to put my own spin on the topic for this week, so I’d actually have some books to feature, and I’ve gone for Five Books I Nearly DNF-ed but am Glad I Stuck With, and Five Books I Stuck With but Wish I DNF-ed.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Characters I Liked that Were in Books I Disliked.
So it turns out I don’t have enough characters I liked in books I disliked to make a top ten list, in fact I don’t think I have enough books I disliked full stop. So instead for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post I’m featuring five characters who deserved better than they got – writing this post has made me realise I’m not quite over what happened to some of them – and five characters who got exactly what they deserved.
*Please be warned this post will include spoilers for a lot, if not all, of the books I picked this week.*
