The Bookworm’s Tag! (I Created A New Tag?) + I Redesigned My Blog

Greetings, fellow bookworms!

Can you believe that it’s already spring?! This year has flown by and now that it’s the end of winter, I’m feeling it more than ever.

In celebration of the new season, I decided to create a new book tag. I’m notorious for never getting around to doing tags, so I’m aware of the irony in my creating a new one. But I enjoyed making it and I hope you’ll enjoy seeing it!

The Rules:

  • Thank and link to the blogger who nominated you
  • Include the tag graphic in your post
  • Answer the ten questions the blogger asked
  • Nominate between five and ten bloggers
  • Ask your nominees ten book-related questions!
  • Don’t feel bound to these rules
  • (Most importantly) Have fun!

My Questions:

  1. What’s the most recent book you’ve read?
  2. What’s a common theme you’ve seen in all of your favorite books?
  3. What’s the funniest book you’ve read?
  4. How often do you read new books?
  5. Do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction?
  6. Who is the last fictional character you related to? (Or the last real person you related to if you’re talking about non-fiction 😉)
  7. What’s the saddest book you’ve ever read?
  8. Where’s your favorite place to read?
  9. What’s the last book that inspired you?
  10. Have you ever gotten to meet an author?

And just for fun I’m going to answer my own questions. 😂

  1. What’s the most recent book you’ve read?

The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane. Oh my goodness, it’s so sad. And hilarious. And suspenseful. I just finished reading it this morning and I absolutely loved it, despite being quite annoyed with the main character, Henry.

  • What’s a common theme you’ve seen in all of your favorite books?

Hope. I like a good tear-jerker as much as anyone, but a story without hope really isn’t worth reading in my opinion. It just gets you way too down and can completely throw off the way you look at the way you look at the world.

  • What’s the funniest book you’ve read?

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. I really, really enjoyed that book and I was laughing out loud for most of the time I was reading.

  • How often do you read new books?

I read quite a bit, so I usually read at least two or three new books a month, unless I’m rereading some old favorites.

  • Do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction?

Both, actually. I’d say I’m about 50/50. I enjoy both genres and I’ve learned a lot from both fiction and non-fiction.

  • Who is the last fictional character you related to?

Oddly enough I found myself relating to Huckleberry Finn. I really didn’t expect to find so many things in common with him, but it turns out we have a lot of similarities.

  • What’s the saddest book you’ve ever read?

I want to say Les Miserables, but if I think about it, I’d have to say that The Reason by Lacey Sturm was probably the saddest book I’ve ever read—primarily because it was actually about her life, not fictional events.

  • What’s your favorite place to read?

I love reading on my bed because it’s quiet (and comfortable), but I’m fine reading pretty much anywhere.

  • What was the last book that inspired you?

I would have to say John. I know I say this about pretty much every single book of the bible, but John is one of my favorites. There’s so much emotion and sadness in these pages, but it’s balanced with a good amount of hope. I just finished reading John today and it was so inspiring. I love the last few verses.

  1. Have you ever gotten to meet an author?

While I’ve never met a published author before (at least not that I can remember at the moment XD), I’ve gotten to meet quite a few fellow writers—whose books I’m totally going to buy when they get published.

My Nominees:

Hattush

Lydia

Esmeralda

Mphtheatregirl

Maggie

And there we go! I hope you all enjoyed this post! Feel free to do this tag if you weren’t nominated, and no pressure if you were. 😉

Also, if you’re reading this on my actual blog, you may have noticed that things look a bit different! I decided to do a bit of redesigning on my blog. I’m not done yet and I can’t say I’m super excited with how it looks now. 😂 But I’m working on it! Let me know what you think of what I have so far!

Happy spring, everyone! May this season bring new life and hope to each of us.

Hey! I’m Jehosheba, a teenage, Christian girl living for Jesus with my family of eight. I have a passion for books and I started Rambling Reviews as a place where I could share my honest thoughts on the different books I had read, as well as a place where people could share their own thoughts. I'd love to get to know you, too, so feel free to stop by my blog and introduce yourself!

  1. This was really cool! I’m going to answer the questions here in the comments because I have too many blog posts in my schedule, hehe.

    What’s the most recent book you’ve read?

    I just finished The Cursed Hunter by Bethany Atazadeh. Definitely recommend The Stolen Kingdom Series by her.

    What’s a common theme you’ve seen in all of your favorite books?

    Found Family. I think it’s beautiful that people can find a place where they belong and it’s something I long for myself.

    What’s the funniest book you’ve read?

    I dunno.

    How often do you read new books?

    Like, at least one a week?

    Do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction?

    Fiction for sure!

    Who is the last fictional character you related to? (Or the last real person you related to if you’re talking about non-fiction 😉)

    Probably Beth from Little Women. I’m currently reading that one.

    What’s the saddest book you’ve ever read?

    I don’t know. I don’t really get sad by books. I guess I’ll say Heartless because it didn’t have a happy ending.

    Where’s your favorite place to read?

    I like to read in my living room…but people are always THERE. So probably my bedroom.

    What’s the last book that inspired you?

    I guess Little Women? I want to write a book with family values such as that someday.

    Have you ever gotten to meet an author?

    Nope. I have gotten to virtually interact with Bethany Atazadeh through her Instagram though!

    ——————————————
    I hoped you liked that! Also, maybe I’ve helped to get you excited for when you read Little Women!

    1. Thank you! Ah, I loved seeing your answers! I loved seeing your answer to the second question: that was beautiful! 💖 Thanks for commenting! (And yes, I’m feeling better about Little Women! I’m starting it today so I’ll let you know what I think!)
