Today, since now it’s Easter weekend, I thought it’d be fun to do the Easter Book Tag, despite not being tagged (or celebrating Easter as a religious holiday) . Onto the post!
Rabbits – A book that you wish would multiply – So a book you want a sequel to (that doesn’t have one)-
This is VERY hard, as my favourite standalone works so perfectly I don’t think it needs one. I think I’ll go for the Eye of the North, as unlike the other book I was considering (Brightstorm) I don’t believe one is in the works. I’d love to see Emmeline and Thing on another adventure!
Egg – A book that surprised you
At time of writing, I’m halfway through the Buried Crown by Ally Sherrick, which I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it, so this was a very pleasant surprise. I was absolutely blown away by Under Rose Tainted Skies a few months ago too, as I had no expectations going in and it was incredible.
Hunt – A book that was hard for you to get your hands on
This one’s a bit harder, so I’ll go for the Disappearances, which I was sent last summer. The reason it was hard to get my hands on was that it went missing in the post, and Pushkin very kindly sent me another!
Lambs – A children’s book that you still enjoy-
I still enjoy LOADS of children’s books, as you’ll can tell by other answers/my other posts!
Spring – A book with a cover that makes you think of spring
The two colours I most associate with spring are yellow and light green, so I’ll go for Battle of the Beetles, which fits the latter. It’s an absolutely brilliant ending to a phenomenal trilogy, which I highly recommend to fellow fans of MG.
Rising from the dead – A book from a deceased author
One of my favourite authors who is no longer with us is Enid Blyton, as I adored her school stories (especially Malory Towers) and the Five Find-Outers are brilliant.
Baskets – A book that is in your amazon cart or wish list right now
Ooh. There are many, many things on my bookish wishlist, both upcoming and backlist! I’m more likely to buy backlist from Amazon (so I’ll go for Boys Don’t Knit, which I’ve meant to pick up for years and have just never got to.
Thank you so much for reading! What are your favourite types of Easter eggs? Are you a fan of the books I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @GoldenBooksGirl, and have a lovely Easter!
