The Last Book I ……… Book Tag!

It’s Thursday which is always a good day to do a book tag. I saw this tag on Becky’s Book Blog but it apparently began on Instagram before Becky adapted it for her blog post. It’s a really simple fun tag so let’s get started.

The last book I bought

I bought this two days ago in preparation for going on holiday next week. I love the world that Melissa Caruso has created in this series and her previous trilogy and I’m really looking forward to reading this latest instalment.

The last book I borrowed

I borrowed these books from the library on Monday, again in preparation for our holiday next week. I am so excited about going to Venice next week!

The last book I was gifted

The last time I received a book as a gift was at Christmas when I received this from my son.

The last book I gave to someone else

The last time I gave books to anyone else was also at Christmas. I gave A Little Hatred to my husband and Defy the Night to my daughter.

The last book I started

I’m really enjoying this tale of family secrets as an estranged brother and sister find out a lot more about their mother than they expected after her death.

The last book I finished

This was my last finished book which is a Net Galley ARC. Set in Aquitaine, France, Chief of Police Bruno is faced with a terrorist incident when a folk song becomes the subject of political uproar and the songwriter might the focus of an assassination attempt.

The last book I rated 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved this story of the aristocratic Count Rostov who is sentenced to house arrest at the Hotel Metropole. It’s quite a gentle slow moving story that details his life over the next 3 decades. At its heart, it’s the story of found family.

The last book I rated 2 stars ⭐⭐

This sounded brilliant but I was just bored with it. Apparently it’s a TV series and it seemed to have been written with that in mind rather than a novel to be read.

The last book I DNF’d

I couldn’t get on with this at all and when the snake started to contribute to the story it was time to give it up.

The last book I listened to

I don’t listen to audio books so I think the last book I listened to was the radio dramatisation of the Hobbit years ago.

This was a fun tag to do. Thank you Becky for creating this version.

What would your ‘last’ books be?

  1. Venice was one of my most favorite places to visit! I sure hope you enjoy it. My sister was there 2 days ago, and they were filming a period movie for Netflix, and there were a bunch of actors in elaborate costumes milling about! Her pictures were amazing.

  2. Love this! And I’m so glad you took part. You’ve reminded me I really need to pick up The Quicksilver Court, I loved the first book and, for some reason, never carried on with the series 🤷🏼‍♀️. Great post 😊

  3. That turned out a great list Jannette. My last purchased book was The Rescuers by Margery Sharp; last listened to was Dr Wortle’s School by Anthony Trollope (I too, don’t really listen to audio books, though this wasn’t a bad experiment in itself).
    Enjoy your Venice trip!

      1. Glad to hear that Jannette; wishing you a great trip. I’m looking forward to next week too. While I’m not travelling, I begin a two week break from work!

      2. No worries. I knew you were talking to me. And don’t even mention typing on a phone. I cannot work out why I’m so bad at it still 😕
