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!

Five Books That Remind Me of Panic! At the Disco Songs

Hello everybody! Last month, I did a post about books that remind me of Taylor Swift songs to celebrate the release of what turned out to be her new single Me!.

I had a lot of fun writing that post, so I decided I wanted to do something similar. Given that Panic! At the Disco also has an extensive back catalogue to choose from and their frontman Brendon Urie featured on Me!, they seemed the natural next choice. Onto the post!
