The Wonderstruck Book Tag // An Original Tag (by me!) Featuring Taylor Swift + Books!!

Two things I adore are Taylor Swift and books.

I also love participating in book tags, and while I’ve done my fair share of fun ones throughout the years…I’ve never created one! Today I’m breaking that trend by introducing the Wonderstruck Book Tag, a tag that combines my loves for Taylor Swift and books.✨

blog title - design #1 (11)

I’ll be using some of my favorite Taylor Swift songs (which there are a lot of XD) and then connecting them each to a prompt and book! That explanation sounded very confusing. But basically it’s just like a normal book tag would be?

I decided to call it Wonderstruck because that it’s a word I associate with Taylor Swift (she had a perfume named that) and it dates back to one of my favorite Taylor Swift eras, with the albums Speak Now and Fearless and it even reminds me a little of the 1989 vibes, which I LOVE.

I’m so excited, because I’ve never done something like this before, and though it probably won’t catch on, I know I’ll have fun creating it. 😉

The Hamilton Book Tag // ft. Me Flailing Because This Exists?!

If I’m not reading, I’m listening to Hamilton.

This is a very true fact. I listen to Hamilton in the car, while I’m getting ready for dance, while I’m cleaning, when I’m writing blog posts- at any time, you can pick up my phone and Hamilton will either be playing or might have just been paused.

I’ve talked about loving Hamilton a couple times on my blog, but there hasn’t been an entire post dedicated to it yet, and I think that needs to change. 😉 So I decided I wanted to make a book tag about Hamilton, and then upon researching it, I discovered that it’s already in existence!

Blog Title - Design #1 (4)

The original tag was created by the booktuber Maureen Keavy way back in 1791 is that what you have, are you done October 2015, and I found the blog version here. I’m not sure if it’s allowed to do a tag so long after it was originally created, but I’m going to do it anyway because I love Hamilton too much not to.

Oh, and a quick warning- this post will contain many Hamilton lyric references, gifs, and fangirling. Continue at your own risk (I really hope you do?!), you have been warned.

7 Favorite Things Tag // I Made A Bookstagram (!!), I’m Obsessed With Friends, & More

I love a lot of things besides books and Harry Potter.

Since this is primarily a book blog, I often neglect to talk about things I love that don’t revolve around the latest series I’m obsessed with or my thoughts on various characters. So when Annie (one of my best blogging friends!) tagged me for the My Favorite Things tag, I knew I just had to participate. 😉

Okay, there may be a few mentions of books in here I can’t help it, but for the most part, I’m going to be discussing some of my favorite things that aren’t my small, precious children. Also known as books. 

Without further ado, let’s begin!

The Lady Janies Book Tag // Most Anticipated Release, Favorite Characters, + More

I think we’re long overdue for a book tag.

I love a good book tag almost as much as I love a good contemporary, and today I’m so happy to be participating in The Lady Janies Book Tag. I’ve recently realized just how many amazing characters there are named Jane, and that made me especially excited to do this tag. 😉

Screen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.09.09 PM.png

I was tagged for this by Malanie and Elizabeth (they’re both amazing and I love them and their blogs dearly), so thank you to both of you for the tag! This tag was created in honor of The Lady Janies series and My Plain Jane‘s release, and while I haven’t read this series yet, I definitely want to now.

Let’s get right into it!

The Social Media Tag // All the Blogger Love + Recognition!!

Besides Harry Potter, something that makes me very happy is blogger appreciation.

Bloggers are incredibly hard workers. We read books, write blog posts, interact with other bloggers, all while going to school or work. How do we do it, honestly. One of my favorite things to do is talk about how amazing other bloggers are!

Screen Shot 2018-08-28 at 6.05.57 PM.png

Thankfully, tags like this exist. 😉 Today I’ll be participating in the Social Media tag, which I was tagged for by Lily, Kimberly, and Ally. I’m so, so excited to be sharing my love and appreciation for other blogs in this post!

Without further ado, let us begin.

The Sunshine Blogger Award // Annoying Characters, Life-Changing Books, & More

Hey there, wonderful people!

July is a month full of sunshine, so what better time to do the Sunshine Blogger Award? I was kindly nominated by Maria, Lily, and Sissi for this award, and I’m so excited to participate today. ☀️

It’s been way too long since I last did a tag, and I’m a *little* behind, but I still love doing them, so I’ll try to stay caught up in the upcoming months. Even if it means I’m doing the tags a few months late. XD 

Without further ado, let’s get started!

The Hogwarts Tag // ft. Much Love for Harry Potter

In case you didn’t know, I am obsessed with Harry Potter.

The books? I’ve read them so many times I’ve lost count. The movies? I can practically quote them. But a Harry Potter tag? I have yet to do one.

Although I wasn’t technically tagged for this, I’ve seen it floating around (specifically on Lily’s lovely blog), and I just had to participate. Because guys, it’s a Hogwarts tag. 😉 Maybe after I do this I’ll finally get my acceptance letter?

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2018 // Favorites, Anticipated Reads, + More

I’m officially freaking out because it’s June.

How can it already be June? 2018 doesn’t have my permission to go by this fast. Due to my state of panic at this rapidly passing year, it’s only fitting that I participate in the Mid-Year Book Freak Out tag. 😉

Even though I haven’t read at all much this year, I still wanted to take part in this fun tag. That way I’ll be able to look back at the end of the year and see what I was reading way back in June! Maybe by then I won’t be 9 books behind on my Goodreads challenge.

The Liebster Award!! (The Second Time Around)

Hello wonderful readers!

Good morning or afternoon or night, or whatever it is as you read this. 😉 Recently I was tagged for the Liebster Award twice (once by Ivy and Em, and once by Cynthia). I wanted to participate in both of these, so today I will be combining them!liebsterBasically, I’ll just be answering the questions asked by each Emily and Cynthia, but just listing the amount of facts and nominating the amount of people that I would if I was only tagged once. I am very confusing, ignore me.

I have done this tag once before, but I love how versatile it is in that you can do it multiple times and it changes each time you do it! So, let’s get into the post. 🙂
