Quote That Inspires You/Gives You Feels From A Book You've Read

"One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie." Lord of the Rings. My dad read me this as bedtime stories and hearing the words still brings back the memories!

Z-Snatcher Book That Kept You Up Late

Lots of books have that effect on me! The last books I had trouble putting down were George RR Martin's ASOI&F books one and two.

Want to do this tag? Then I tag you!


  1. we do prefer physical books indeed!
    My publisher just got Leigh Bardugo's book on young Wonder Woman for translation :)

    1. Sadly I didn't much like the two Leigh bardugo books that I've tried. I got bored with Six of Crows by 100 pages!

  2. Great answers and fun tag. Maybe I'll do it eventually. I just got the second book in the Warlock Holmes series on Monday. Had to add it to the first - still need to read them both.

    1. I need to get to this one maybe next month! Ach so many books to get reading!

  3. Ooh nice book mail! Shark Island I'm curious about. Shark mayhem weee!!!! lol

    I love the Rings quote, of course. And I haven't had Fanta in ages!

    1. There's nothing like some nice gory shark fun!

  4. oh my god I need to giggle because the list of the books you won't read is the kind I love :D LOL BUT you are reading Six of Crows! I think I would like that book when I give it a second chance :) you know I'm an unapologetic Fangirl for Harry Potter and GoT too, so we do have that in common.

    1. I'm fangirling so hard on GoT at the moment! I'd been nagging my dad to watch it and he's just reached the end of Joffrey's wedding and he was so happy! *giggles*
