Book TAG: How I choose my books

Another day – another tag 🙂

Although I deleted two questions from this one because I am lazy!! So if you want an original tag with whole 8 questions check out the post from wonderful May from My1stchapter 

1. Find a book on your shelves or e-reader with a blue cover. What made you want to pick up this book?

  • Embarrassed to say that I still have to read this – I am so excited for it, I just haven’t had any time at all. IMG_4977

2. Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy, but did. Why did you read it in the first place?

  • I went into this book completely blind. I didn’t know the author at all, I didn’t know what the book was about, or if it was good at all. I was just browsing on Barnes and Nobles online for a next book to read. I saw it – I felt drawn to it – I bought it. BEST DECISION EVER. I adored it from start to finish and it is one of my favorites from start to finish. 29008738

3. Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick a book at random. How did you discover this book?

  • The circus by Olivia Levez  – I’ve gotten this book from LibraryThing , and it was my very first ARC ever. I’ve got a review for it right HEREimg-4223

4. Pick a book that you discovered through BookTube/book blogs.

  • I actually found the famous Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo through Goodreads. It was so extremely hyped up when I joined it, I decided I’d try it out. It took me half a year to get to it – but boy oh boy was I glad that I did 🙂 IMG_4822

5. Find a book on your shelves or e-reader with a one-word title. What drew you to this book?

  • I saw it on Goodreads, circulating a lot. Don’t know much about this book, which makes me a bit scared to read it – because there is always a chance that this could just turn out to be a typical ya cliche. 51vE64szi-L._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_

6. Think of your all time favorite book(s). When did you read them and why did you pick them up in the first place?

  • Life of Pi was recommended to me by a coworker. 51rxEvLljUL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_
  • The Night Circus – I saw it at Barnes and Nobles so many times and the cover just spoke to me -so one day I finally got it and wow it blew my mind. images-4
  • Till we have faces was a random pick from C.S.Lewis collection. I remember the day I picked it up very fondly as it was one of the best dates I had with my husband (boyfriend at a time). We went to the bookstore, got coffee and pretzels and browsed for hours ❤ IMG_5294
  • Eleanor Elephant is completely fine – this one is one of my newer favorites. I read this about a month ago and was absolutely in love with it. It might have been one of the best books I’ve read whole year to be honest. 9780735220683
  • I’ve already mentioned Six of Crows in this post, but obviously they are on my favorites list as well.

I have more favorites but these are the ones I felt like mentioning today 🙂 If you haven’t done this tag yet – you are tagged. I’d love to read your answers. Post the link below.

Till next time,
