The Bedtime Book Tag

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Bedtime Book Tag, which I saw ages ago on Writing with Wolves and have been meaning to do ever since. Onto the post!


01. What book kept you up all night reading?

Loads, but one particularly vivid memory of this is with How Not to Disappear by Clare Furniss. It’s so utterly engrossing I meant to read A chapter and devoured the whole thing.

02. What book made you scared to go to sleep?

Close Your Pretty Eyes by Sally Nicholls. I didn’t much fancy closing my eyes after reading that, let me tell you.

03. What book almost put you to sleep?

I’ve said this a few times for similar questions but Two Can Keep a Secret. It was genuinely hard to read it at night because sleep was so much more appealing than trudging through that metaphorical snoozefest.

04. Which book had you tossing & turning in anticipation of its release?

The biggest one this year is probably Wildspark. I read it almost immediately after I finally got gold of it and loved it even more than I thought I would.

05. What book has your dream boyfriend?

Still Nick from Geek Girl. I love him, and if any real boy ever lives up I’ll be surprised.

06. What book would be a nightmare to live in?

Anything remotely dystopian. One of the reasons I don’t like consuming dystopian media most of the time is that imagining living in those worlds really freaks me out.

07. What book reminds you of nighttime?

I was really struggling with this one, and then it struck me that I literally read a book called the Longest Night of Charlie Noon not that long ago, so I’ll say that. It’s extremely difficult to explain in any kind of detail without spoiling it, so all I’ll tell you is that it’s about three children who get unexpectedly lost in the woods when night falls early. Trust me, you want to go in knowing next to nothing.

08. What book has a nightmarish cliffhanger?

Secret in the Stone, no question. There’s about 5 twists in very quick succession at the very end. Also Spies in St Petersburg’s is an absolute doozy.

09. What book have you actually dreamt about?

I don’t think I’ve had dreams about any? At least not ones I can remember. I have however had very vivid dreams about TV shows, such as the one where I was Alba in Cable Girls in this very specific part of the show I won’t spoil because it’s SO brilliant and underrated and you should go and watch it immediately if you like soapy drama with lots of romance and intrigue.

10. What fictional monster would you not like to find hiding under your bed?

I honestly don’t know- maybe the Malamander from the book of the same name? I’d love to find Owsin the kobold from Starfell hiding under there though, because he’s AMAZING.


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

The Spring Flowers Book Tag

Hello everybody! Today, since we are now well into spring (despite the deceptive weather), I’m going to be doing the Spring Flowers Book Tag. Onto the post!


Daffodil- A book about unrequited love

The Upside of Unrequited is about a girl experiencing love for the first time after many years of unrequited love. I don’t talk about it anywhere near as much as I do Simon Vs but I really love it as well.

Foxglove- A book you pretended to like

I can’t think of any! No point trying to lie.

Lilac- A book about a first love

This was unexpectedly hard to come up with! I think the aforementioned Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda would fit?

Hyacinth- A book with a sad ending

Ways to Live Forever has the saddest ending ever.

Peony- A book that made you feel embarrassed

Ooh I don’t know. I remember feeling embarrassed when I read Bras and Broomsticks because of the title, which everyone commented on.

Tulip- A book with the most beautiful declaration of love

Nick’s at the end of Geek Girl melts me every time.

Crocus- A book that made you laugh out loud

There are loads. The most recent one I can think of where I was laughing a LOT is A Girl Called Shameless!

Pansy- A book that challenged you to think about an important or heavy subject

The Boy at the Back of the Class is about a child trying to befriend the Syrian refugee who has just joined their class, and it’s thought provoking, moving and somehow incredibly funny all at once.

Daisy- A book about a strong female friendship

Beautiful Broken Things focuses almost solely on a female friendship! It’s great, and the friendships are super complex.


What are your thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? Do you have a favourite flower? I’d love to hear in the comments!
