It’s Lily O. Book Tag


I am avoiding the NCAA Basketball Tournament (GO BADGERS!), so I decided to create a tag for book lovers.

What was the last book you read?

Love’s Inconvenient Truth by Love Belvin

What was your favorite book as a child?

-I don’t know if I had a favorite book as a child.

What is your favorite genre to read and why?

-Romance and Christian Fiction. I like stories about people finding peace and happiness.

If you could write any type of book, what type of book would you write?

-I would write fiction, and probably Chick-Lit.

Have you ever encountered a character in a book that you felt could be a friend? If so, who and why?

Heather Wells, the main character in Meg Cabot’s Heather Wells Mystery series. She’s funny, doesn’t take herself too seriously and seems like an overall cool person.

Ereader or Physical copy?

-I used to be completely against Ereaders. However, I ran out of room on my bookshelf. My Kindle has 500 books; I could never own that many physical copies.

Where is your favorite place to read?

-When it is cold or rainy out, my bed is my favorite place to read. When it is nice out, I prefer to read in the Park or the Botanical Gardens.

Do you prefer to listen to music while you read, or do you prefer silence?

-It depends on what I am reading. If I am reading academic writing silence or soft Gospel music is preferred. When reading  non-academic writing I prefer silence. I have had bad experiences listening to music while reading fiction. Whenever I hear a certain song, I can’t help but think of the book I was reading at the time.

Who is/are your favorite author(s)?

-I have too many, but for this tag I will only list two: Phyllis Reynolds Naylor and Beverly Cleary.

Beverly Cleary wrote Children and Young Adult fiction over fifty years ago that I can still recommend to kids today. That’s Talent.

Phyllis Reynolds Naylor wrote the “Alice” series that I read between the ages of 9 – 22. She has my complete respect.

Are you doing any reading challenges this year?

-The Goodreads “Mocha Girls Book Club” reading challenge. However, I am VERY stubborn. I have to do better with my dedication to reading for the challenge.

What’s the next book on your “to read” list?

Waaaayyyyy too many books. I wanted to read Zuri Day’s “Driving Heat”, but S.K Hardy just announced that the next book in the Sin City Heat Series is coming out this Saturday. Also, Synthia Williams just released a book that I want to read. I haven’t a clue which book I am going to read first.

*Add a question to the list and try out the book tag yourself*
