Book Tag Thursday: The Stuck at Home Book Tag

I’ve seen these Thursday book tags and have participated a few times. This one which I saw at Rachel’s blog, caught my attention today as it seemed perfect for the situation, we are all in. (check here for where it was originally found).

  1. What are you currently reading?

I always have several books on the go. There’s usually:

 a fantasy book:  Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

children 34728667

A contemporary fiction and/or romance: What You Wish For by Katherine Center

An ebook:  Dragon of Glass by Zoe Chant

 non-fiction book: Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

year of yes 29540318._SX318_

 

  1. What’s your favourite “can’t-leave-the-house” activity?

Besides reading, which is my favourite activity by far, it would have to be any art or craft project I get involved in – from collage, journaling, watercolour or felt crafts, just to name a few.

 

  1. A book you have been meaning to read forever.
  2. An intimidating book on your TBR. (Same book for both!)

I have several of these but the one I feel most guilty about is The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I loved the series but just haven’t been able to finish it. Reading it is more disturbing than watching that dystopian future.

  1. Top 3 priority books on your TBR.

  1. Recommend a short book.

Any book by Austin Kleon would be wonderful – especially if you need a creative boost

  1. Recommend a long book.

I just finished rereading my favourite fantasy series – The Others by Anne Bishop. All four books in the series (and the two companion books) are all over 400 pages. And all 5* reads.

  1. Something you’d love to do while stuck at home.

I’d love to be able to sew better and spend time sewing a quilt. I’ve collected books and quilt patterns and material.

 

  1. What do you plan to read next?
