My Life in Books Tag

It’s Tuesday and so I thought I would amuse myself with a Tuesday Book Tag. I saw this one on @emandherbooks but it’s been around since at least 2016 on The journeys of a girl and others.

So here is my life in books.

Pick a book for each of your initials The set of initials I generally use are JdV which isn’t the easiest set of initials for book titles. However, I’ve gone with the following which are all books that I love.

Count your age along your bookshelf. What book is it?
I have so many different bookshelves at home so I decided the easiest way was to pick the book that was my age in my goodreads books that I have read this year.

A great historical novel set in 16th century Florence

Pick a book set in your city or country
Living in Leicester, it had to be one of my favourite books which certainly ends here.

A glorious account of the life of Richard III

Pick a book that represents a place you’d like to travel to This is really hard as there are so many places I would love to go. However I have always wanted to visit the Cinque Terre part of Italy which is where this book is set.

The Lemon Tree Hotel by Rosanna Ley

Pick a book that’s your favourite colour I love pinks and purples so this cover really stood out for me

Which book do you have fondest memories of? Always Lord of the Rings. I used to read it every Summer as a teenager so it brings back memories of just lying on my bed reading with nothing else that I had to be doing.

Which book did you have most difficulty reading? Germinal by Emile Zola as part of my degree. It was so heartbreakingly sad.

Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it? Probably Mayflies by Andrew O’Hagan which isn’t my normal reading at all but I was recommended it by my brother who is generally right in his recommendations.

That’s my life in books. Thanks again to @emandherbooks for the inspiration.
