The Two Books, One Stone Tag

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Two Books, One Stone tag, which I found on Lainy’s blog. Onto the post!


1) The second-last book you read.

At time of writing, Field Notes on Love. It was pretty meh for me, to be honest.

2) The second book from the top of your TBR

I think the 2nd next thing I’ll read is probably going to be In the Time We Lost but I might totally change my mind!

3) Two 2-star reads.

Bodas de Sangre and the Glass Menagerie are my two most recnt, I think? It’s not a rating I give much.

4) Two great books by the same author

Running on the Roof of the World and When the Mountains Roared by Jess Butterworth are both absolute perfection.

5) Two bails, or two books you’d wished you’d bailed on, or two books you hated.

I’m going to go for ones I’ve DNF, and I think the two most recent have been Running on Empty and the Girl with Shark’s Teeth.

6) Two favourite books this year

I, Cosmo is my fave MG, and A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder takes the crown for best YA so far

7) Two new favourite book bloggers.

They’re not really new anymore, but the two newest I’ve become a proper reader of are Rachael and Lily– they’re both brilliant!

8) A book you’ve read twice

I’m struggling to think of many I’ve read exactly twice! The Children of Castle Rock is one, I think.

9) Two fabulous quotes from books you’ve read recently.

Neither of these are very recent but the one about scars from No Ballet Shoes in Syria I mentioned in a Top Ten Tuesday about quotes shortyly after I read it and ‘courage, dear heart’ are my go to answers for this. I actually really want to get the latter as a tattoo!


What would your answers to some of these be? Do you agree with any of mine? I’d love to hear in the comments!

    1. You’re so welcome, so happy I started reading your blog and met you this year! Good Girl’s Guide is fab. I really hope the sequel is good! My fave YA this year are quite a mixed bunch, which is nice- usually it’s very contemporary heavy but it’ll be a bit more of a mixed list this year 😊

  1. Aaah, thank you 😊 😊
    I still need to read Children of Castle Rock! Soon!
    Good call on Jess’ books too, Running on the Roof of the World is still a real favourite of mine too.
