My Name in TBR Book Tag — My Monster & Me

[A gif that perfectly illustrates my relationship with the said shelf …]


“Cats don’t have names,” it said.
“No?” said Coraline.
“No,” said the cat. “Now you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.”

― Neil GaimanCoraline

You know my name but not my to be read shelf… so I’d like you guys to be acquainted with my ever growing TBR. I usually feed it once in a blue moon but in large quantities. It’s wrecking havoc in my priorities and a fearsome entity, thus I fondly call it my monster TBR or mons-TBR for short.

So for this tag, what you’re suppose to do is take your name and find a book from your TBR that starts with each letter of your name (in my case it’s two bookper letter). I decided to do both my username and the title for my book blog.

 “You know that feeling,” she [Tessa] said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.”

― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo: A Murder of Crows

“Crows remember human faces. They remember the people who feed them, who are kind to them. And the people who wrong them too. They don’t forget. They tell each other who to look after and who to watch out for.”

Authors I Would Dearly Love To Meet!

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”

― J.D. SalingerThe Catcher in the Rye

The Sea King by C.L. Wilson

Repost:

My first buddy read! A bookworm achievement unlocked thanks to story_girl inviting me to read this with her.

“Calbernans didn’t fear a woman’s strength. They celebrated it. Admired it. Wed it, if they were lucky enough.”

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Repost:

I soared through the skies with Kadara, explored the libraries of the Tower, and slapped Chaol in the face. Kidding! … Or am I?

“She would have an adventure. For herself. This one time.
She would see her homeland, and smell it and breathe it in.
See it from high above, see it racing as fast as the wind.
She owed herself that much.”

Warcross by Marie Lu: Life is a Game, so is ‘Warcross’

Repost:

“Some people still say that Warcross is just a stupid game. Others say it’s a revolution. But for me and millions of others, it’s the only foolproof way to forget our troubles.”
