My life in Books tag

So I am a self-confessed Bibliophile, I get great pleasure from collecting and reading many books and have read up to 12 books in one day just because. So when I came across this tag I knew it was fate, so here is ‘My life in books‘ tag.


Find a book for each of your initials

K – To Kill a Mockingbird, Mockingjay, L – Lord of the Flies


Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?

Death Note Volume 1



Pick a book set in your city or country

I wouldn’t be a true Brit or HP fan if I didn’t pick Harry Potter for this 😛


Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to one day

Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children Trilogy – there are so many locations visited and discussed in the books that I would love to visit them all (especially the Loops).


Pick a book in your favourite colour


My favourite colour is green and although I’m not a fan of the UK release cover of this book it’s still green.

Which book/book series do you have the fondest memories of?

This one is super simple and it’s Harry Potter, the whole series greatly affected me growing up and has made me the crazy coffee drinking, cat cuddling, Harry Potter obsessed Kitty I am today.


Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?


Don’t get me wrong I love this book now. But the first time I attempted to read this book in my teens I struggled, mainly because of the language Nadsat which is a Russian influenced English that the teens speak in the book. It made the book even more interesting and I love reading it now but back then damn.


Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

I’m currently collecting the whole Anne Rice The Vampire Chronicles, so once I have them all and have finished reading them that will give me great pleasure and a sense of accomplishment; especially since two of the set I’ve managed to get are first editions.



So my question for you is ‘What book did you read in your childhood that shaped your adult life?’

    I’m not a big fan of reading. I remember we had to read books at school. I was always so happy when I was done reading. I wish I could just grab a book and start to read and actually enjoy it. However, I enjoy reading blogs. It’s totally different maybe.

    I love this tag! Such a fun thing to do, my book initials would be – (The) Kind Worth Killing, Ulysses, Red Queen 🙂

    I don’t know about the book that shaped my adult life. I loved Count of Monte Cristo but I’m not sure it shaped me, other than starting me down the path to a love of reading.

    I love the, “These things are great! It’s like a TV in your head!” gif! So true! I, too, love books. I’ve tried to stop hoarding them cause they take up so much space and now enjoy many trips to the public library. I also seem to not be able to read them as fast as new ones pop onto my wish list! lol.

    First, to answer your question, in my childhood the book that shaped my adult life in a profound sens was the bible. In a more soften sense, I was impressed by Without dogma (or Aniela) by Henryk Sienkiewicz.

    I love this tag! I’m bookmarking this post so I can participate at some point. 😉 I think all the chapter books my mom read to me as a child that had strong female main characters really shaped my adult life and helped me to be brave, unapologetic, and smart.

      Yes I agree. This looks great. Like I said before I am not a big fan of reading. But I think I should give it a bit more time to try it out. However this post is unique and different than the average book reviews and that’s something I like!

    Hands down, the book that shaped my live, A Light in the Attic, by Shel Silverstein. I know it was a book of story poems, but it really changed my life when I was younger 😊 Thank you for sharing! Take care!

    I used to be such a massive reader but the last few years I have just lost interest in books & not sure why. I also found The Clockwork Orange a difficult book to read as I just couldn’t understand what they were on about :D. Enid Blyton books were my reading material of childhood age and Irvine Welsh was my favourite with Trainspotting, Marabou Stork Nightmares as well as his others that he wrote.

    I’m such a book lover but for me it’s sometimes hard to take the time to read. Perhaps I should do this tag – just for myself – to rediscover some of my favorite books 🙂

    The last set of books i read was the Peculiar Children Trillogy by Ransom Riggs. I feel like I should start reading again because of your post! hihi! thank you for this!

      I remember having a hard time getting through it when I was younger but once I did, I fell in love and read it over and over and still to this day cherish my copies the world is just so beautiful 🙂
