The Blog Most Likely To… challenge is one that was inspired by Huntley Fitzpatrick’s book, The Boy Most Likely To. In the run up to its release bloggers were asked to choose their own superlative for their blog using the tag “The Blog Most Likely To…”. Even though the book is well past its release day this challenge is still floating around out there and I was tagged by Analee at Book Snacks, so thank you Analee for this tag.
When I read The Boy Most Likely To at the beginning of this year I loved it, even more than the previous companion novel My Life Next Door. Tim’s journey throughout was so wonderfully written, so moving, and it made the whole book felt real and incredibly well developed. Of course I jumped at the chance to take part in this challenge; despite the facts that The Boy Most Likely To has been released for a while now and that it’s taken me a long time to get around to this tag.

The Dim Sum Book Tag is the brainchild of Joey at Thoughts and Afterthoughts and Jenna at Reading With Jenna. Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine whereby food is served in small (tapas-like) portions and is common during yum cha (which literally means: drinking tea). This tag is inspired by good company and good eats.
I was tagged by Reg at She Latitude. Thank you so much for the tag, it took me a little while to get around to completing this one but I was very excited to take part and I had a great time coming up with my answers.
Here are some rules to devour this tag:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
- Devour dim sum and answer the tag questions.
- Tag five others to join your round table for some dim sum fun.
- Food coma.
