Harry Potter Spells Book Tag!

Kate @ Reading Through Infinity tagged me in the Harry Potter Spells Tag – thank you, Kate! – so today I thought I’d give it a go. It feels like it’s been ages since I last did a tag.


A childhood book connected to good memories?


I used to get Roald Dahl’s The Magic Finger out of the library all the time when I was little and I loved it. It’s still one of my favourite children’s books and I feel like it’s one of Dahl’s lesser-known books.


A book that took you by surprise?


Definitely The Cruel Prince – I did not expect to love that book as much as I did!


The last book you read?


I finished Devils Unto Dust just before I went on holiday last week and I enjoyed it! It’s the first (and so far only) book I’ve read for Tome Infinity and Beyond Round 3 because I spent 5 days exploring Denmark and catching up with friends, so I’m hoping to complete some more challenges for the readathon over the weekend.


A book that introduced you to a genre you’d never considered before?


It’s not exactly a genre, but a few years ago I read Mira Grant’s Feed and it became one of my favourite novels of all time, then earlier this year I read Justina Ireland’s Dread Nation and finally made the realisation that, contrary to what I always thought, I like zombie novels.


A funny book you’ve read?


The Raven and the Reindeer made me laugh several times; T. Kingfisher is brilliant at writing funny fantasy.


A book you think everyone should know about?


Blood Water Paint is an absolute stunner of a novel, written in verse, and I haven’t seen enough people around the blogosphere talking about it.


A book or spoiler you would like to forget you ever read?


If I could erase Juliet Marillier’s Son of the Shadows from my mind, that would be great. I loved Daughter of the Forest and this sequel was garbage.


A book you had to read for school?


I liked a lot of what I had to read for school, but I have really fond memories from my final year, during the second year of my A Levels, when we studied Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra. My teacher was fantastic and she made me fall in love with that play.


A book that was painful to read?


I loved The One Hundred Nights of Hero, but it’s a beast of a graphic novel and a hardback to boot, so it wasn’t very comfortable to read!


A book that could kill (interpret as you will)?


I treated myself to the hardback of The Priory of the Orange Tree and it’s like a brick. I genuinely think it could be a murder weapon.

Thanks again for tagging me, Kate! Fancy doing this tag yourself? Consider yourself tagged – I’d love to see your answers!
