2022 is almost over and we’ve had our Spotify Wrapped playlists! This is always a lot of fun, even when you do have a good idea of what you’re gonna get, ha! My playlists have started to change this year so it certainly has made this tag a little more difficult for me.
The idea of this challenge is to put your 2022 playlist on shuffle, and for the first five songs, you need to pick a book you read in 2022 that fits that song. It doesn’t have to be a perfect fit. You just have to explain why you chose that book for that song. Obviously, you will not have a book match for every song, so you can skip if you need to. But the idea is that you at least need to try, even if it is embarrassing. This was a lot of fun last year, and I’m excited to be doing it again. I hope you all will too!
If you want more examples or are just curious, you can find the original post here and the 2021 one too. And if you do this yourself, make sure you tag me somewhere so I can see!

I’m back today with another book tag! I actually quite like coming up with these, and it’s fun to see other people do them. So I thought I’d pull another one together for a break between the many reviews I’m posting!
I’ve talked about roleplay a few times before, but DnD and tabletop gaming isn’t something I’ve tried yet. But I enjoyed the podcast Spellcheck DnD enough that I’ve tried checking out some other groups playing it. Critical Role is one of the biggest of these fandoms, if not the biggest. I’d always struggled to get into their games in the past until I got to campaign 3 and Bells Hells. Something about this group and their story has grabbed me, and now I’m more than a little obsessed.
With today’s tag, I’m going to be listing all the members so far of the chaotic Hells Bells and giving you prompts relating to them!

I’m honestly surprised that I’m making this book tag before I am anything EnStars, but that was due to problems choosing prompts that I was happy with. These prompts I came up with quickly, but they should be fun to fill in. So I thought, why not put it together?
I’ve not seen much interest in vtubers within the book community, so I’m not sure if anyone will do this book tag. But if you’re stuck on things to post, then let me nudge this towards you, even if the prompts come from something you don’t know. A tag is a tag, after all!
A little over a week ago, a new group debuted from Nijisanji EN. This group of guys all have avatars that supposedly have travelled back in time from the future. Together they’re Stuck in the Abyss and have formed Noctyx. Each character has their own lore and their own way of doing things. Obviously, the person behind the avatar’s personality and interests will always shine through, but there is just something about these backstories and character designs that made me want to create this tag.
So, in no particular order, let’s get on with it!

I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday post! I’ll be honest, this post was actually harder to curate than the last one. This week we’re talking about dynamic duos. Aka the friendships we adore, or our favourite characters who are probably causing trouble together! I adore a good friendship, but I wanted a little variety in this list. So we have a few duos that are family too, but that doesn’t make them any less fun.
The Top Ten Tuesday tag was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now held over on The Artsy Reader Girl. It’s a weekly tag where everyone is given a bookish prompt for bloggers to curate a top ten list on. You can then share your blog post over on The Artsy Reader Girl’s post for that week. Just make sure you check out and comment on other people’s blog posts too!

I love pop-punk music. I listen to a wide variety, but if I had to single out one genre, I’d have to choose pop-punk. My top two favourite bands are Simple Plan and Marianas Trench. Then there’s also Arrows in Action who are quickly moving up the list. Obviously, my main passion is books, so when I saw Alyce from The Bumbling Book Blogger Youtube channel post her pop-punk book tag…I obviously had to do it!

On my blog this year, I want to do more tags and challenges. They’re great fun and can be a way to be a little bit more social. This week I’m starting myself off with a meme, and that’s Top Ten Tuesday which is run by That Artsy Reader Girl. I couldn’t resist doing this week’s challenge as I want to talk about some authors.
So this list is a list of authors who already had books out when I finally picked them up. I’ll mostly be talking about the books I read by them, but some of them I’m definitely going to read more of.
I spent plenty of time going over my spreadsheet from last year to narrow this down. Many of the authors I hadn’t read before were debuts, and I didn’t want to include them. Something interesting I noticed was that a lot of these are contemporary or romance authors. That makes sense, as I did really get into reading those genres in 2021. I do kinda wish there had been a little more fantasy, so hopefully, that’ll change in 2022.
For now, though, let’s get on with the list.

It is Spotify Wrapped time again! We all love seeing our favourite songs, what genres we seem to like the most etc. It’s so much fun, and last year I came up with the Spotify Wrapped book challenge.
The idea of this challenge is to put your 2021 playlist on shuffle, and for the first five songs, you need to pick a book you read in 2021 that fits that song. It doesn’t have to be a perfect fit. You just have to explain why you chose that book for that song. Obviously, you will not have a book match for every song, so you can skip if you need to. But the idea is that you at least need to try, even if it is embarrassing. This was a lot of fun last year, and I’m excited to be doing it again. I hope you all will too!

This was a tag that I tried out back when I was on Booktube because it seemed like a fun way to talk about some books that I’ve not read. It went a little…messy, but I enjoyed it. It was something that I wanted to do again, but this time on my blog! Usually, people pick 5 books, and they read the first chapter.
I’ve pulled out four books that are all very different, that I’m not quite sure how I’m going to feel about them. They’re all books I want to read, obviously. But two came from book boxes, so I didn’t pick them myself, and the other two are books I’ve heard good things from other people about.

I’m here with another book tag! I know, that’s two fairly close together. But that’s because that one’s I actually want to do have been popping up. I saw about this one a while ago, and I asked to be tagged when it was done. That’s because this was based off a book I have adored. Yes, I said book. Because I still need to read the other two that are out in preparation for the fourth one. Thanks so much to El, Andee and Finn for creating this and tagging me. Check them all out too.
I might not be up to date, but I still can’t wait.
Just like the last book tag I did, I’m only going to write a little bit on each book and show you the covers. So if you’re interested in any of these books, please look into them as I promise they’re all good. As well as that I highly suggest you check out the Cute Mutants books, if you want to read my opinion on that my review is here.

I’ve been looking for some book tags to do, so when Ross from The Royal Bookshelf asked if anyone wanted to do a Drag Race UK themed book tag on Twitter I asked to be tagged. My family watches Drag Race together and with the UK version we at least usually get the references on Snatch Game. It’s a lot of fun to watch so I’m happy to be associating books with these contestants!
