Having a post entirely of photographs is always a ridiculously delightful prospect. I love taking photos, okay, peoples?! Yes I do mainly shoot on automatic and I’ve yet to learn all the things about my camera…but someday I WILL CONQUER IT.
I’ve been tagged by Jean @ Happy Indulgence for the Find Me Tag. I’m pretty sure this is basically the best tag ever. I tramped around outside for shots and also had to push my puppy’s face out of 87% of the shots (he thinks he’s more interesting to photograph than books…weirdo) so…ENJOY.
1. Find a book in the 10 categories listed below, take a photo or post the cover.
2. Tag the next victims
3. Link back to Christy at Novel Ink!
1 – A BOOK WITH A SUNSET
So I accidentally cheated for my very first picture but, bah. Rules are for mere mortals. And it is a sun on I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN. Just not a sunset. So 50 points to Slytherin.*
* Yes this is my Hogwarts house. Are you even surprised?
2 – A BOOK WITH WATER
The cover of THE MINNOW is literally underwater, so I win world conquering rights from this one. GO ME. Also this book is incredibly beautiful and confusing. Simultaneously! Exciting.
3 – A BOOK WITH A FLOWER
It is always a good time to throw a Maggie Stiefvater book in your face and whisper, “Reeeeead iiiiiit.” SHE IS MY FAVOURITE OKAY? I love BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE. I think it’s my favourite Raven Cycle book because Blue is so incredibly sassy in this one.
It was true that Blue was just shy of five feet and it was also true that she hadn’t eaten her greens, but she’d done the research and she didn’t think the two were related.
4 – A BOOK WITH A HEART
I haven’t read VALIANT yet, but now that I have Tithe in my cold clammy paws, I will be devouring this trilogy soon. SOON. I’m so excited. I adore Holly Black and creepy faeries. It kind of has a little red heart on the spine there? Don’t question it. It’s the best I could do seeing I never read smushy, happy books.
5 – A BOOK WITH GONE IN THE TITLE
How epically summery is SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE in this picture?! I’m so proud….considering I was freezing my fingertips off taking it. BUT AH WELL. I’m a cold frog in winter. It’s probably because my notorious overlord heart is ice cold. But who can be sure?
6 – A GIRL IN A WHITE DRESS
I’m forever sad that OF POSEIDON was so incredible and the rest of the series was so horrendous. Well, I haven’t touched the third book yet because my sister said it was awful. And she’s a total softie when it comes to rating books. I TRUST HER. But seriously, I laughed so hard in Of Poseidon.
“Basically, everyone thinks — knows — how sweet I am.”
“Emma, you threw my sister through hurricane-proof glass.”
7 – A COUPLE KISSING
Well, CITY OF LOST SOULS was as close as I could get. Seriously, peoples! I searched my shelves for ages for a book where anyone even remotely looked like they were kissing. NADA. And then I looked across my Goodreads shelves. Still nope. I don’t read kissing books apparently.
8 – A BOOK WITH HEADPHONES
I read THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE two years ago! Two whole years. Gosh, how book blogging makes time fly. I do wonder, though, if I read it now…if I’d love it as much. Elise is rather stupid about boys and making friends.
9 – A BOOK WITH A MOON
I can’t help it. My origami paper cranes attacked NIGHTBIRD. This wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read, but it did contain an extraordinary amount of pie, and that is worth reading a book for.
10 – A BOOK WITH A WEAPON
CELAENA WILL ALWAYS BE MY FAVOURITE. And CROWN OF MIDNIGHT just happens to be the best Celaena Sardothien book of all time (so I say, and we all know I’m always right). I highly approve of deadly assassins who like chocolate, puppies, and pretty clothes.
As always…if I didn’t tag you and you want to do this? STEAL IT. You are most welcome. And if I did take you and you hate tags…ignore me. I’m tough. I can take it.
