As it’s the last day of the year I thought that it would be appropriate to do the Last 10 Books tag. I saw this here on Leslie’s Books are the new black blog. However the original tag was created by booktuber: Marc Nash
The Last book I gave up on
I very rarely give up on a book. I’m far more likely to skim read it really quickly just to find out how it all ends. However, I just couldn’t be bothered to finish this one. It sounded brilliant. A murder mystery set in a dystopian setting when the world is ending sounded right up my street but sadly, it didn’t live up to its promise. I think it was the characters. I just didn’t care about any of them and there didn’t seem to be any real tension in the novel.
The Last Book I Bought
I bought this yesterday after seeing some amazing reviews for it. It’s going to be my first read of 2022 as I will start it tomorrow.
The Last Book I Wrote in the Margins of
Writing in the margins!!!! Horror of horrors! I haven’t done that since I studied A Level English Literature and wrote margin notes in my Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy novels.
The Last Book that I had Signed
You can pick up signed copies in nearly every book shop now but the last book that I had signed personally after chatting to the author was by the late, great Anne McCaffrey.
The Last Book I Lost
I don’t normally lose books but I was in the middle of reading this when we moved house and managed to lose it so I had to replace it
The Last Book that I had to replace
My original Pan paperback was second hand and fell to pieces so I had to replace it. Very sad as the new covers are very insipid.
The Last Book I argued over
Probably Mansfield Park again which I remember having a healthy discussion over during a degree tutorial. The question was ‘Is Fanny Price a wimp?’ I don’t tend to argue over books though. I’ll just disagree quietly 😃
The Last Book I pre-ordered
I love L E Modessit and often pre-order his books. This was the last one released in November and I was sooooo disappointed.
What would your last 10 books be? Do you write in the margins? 😲
That’s my last post for 2021. I’ll see you all in the new year!
