The Bibliophile Sweater Tag

Hello fellow bloggers! Some of you many know that I live in the cold, cold state of Minnesota. And it is with deep remorse, that I must announce…that it is snowing. And not just gentle, fluffy flakes. No, no, no. The wind is pounding on my windowpane and my house is creaking and shuffling around, already settling for the winter.

BUT IT’S NOT WINTER. Did the weather fairy not know that? It’s not supposed to be SNOWING four days before Halloween. -_-

But anyway, I do have a point to this rant. With it being so cold, the time of sweaters and long sleeves have come. And I since Mary over at Sunshine and Scribblings tagged me to do her lovely tag, and it’s about sweaters…Well, it just made sense. 🙂 Thank you Mary! *sends a hug over the internet*

The Rules

– Give the person who tagged you a never-ending supply of cookies (or just thank them – either works)
– Answer all the questions and use the blog graphic for this tag somewhere in your post
– Pass along the tag to at least five other people
– Wear a sweater (okay, this is optional…but why wouldn’t you want to??)

fuzzy sweater // a book that is the epitome of comfort

 85990

Princess Academy by Shannon Hale is the very first ‘big kid’ book I remember reading, and it’s really what got me interested in reading. I’ve reread it many times and it will always make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. ^_^

striped sweater // a book which you devoured every line of

23299513

I like to think I devour the lines of every book, but to be particular, one of the most recent books that I absolutely ate up was The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine. It just tickled me pink in all the right ways. 🙂

ugly christmas sweater // a book with a weird cover

65091

Definitely this cover for The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker. It’s just so aesthetically unpleasing, with the weird pink color and the stock photo frog. It just doesn’t make my eyes happy.

cashmere sweater // most expensive book you’ve bought

29772863

*picks through bookshelves* That would have to Wires and Nerves by Marissa Meyer at a whopping $22! But believe me, it was TOTALLY worth it. SO. GOOD.

hoodie // a favorite classic book

20893528

I do so immensely enjoy Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. It’s a very homey, comforting book, plus, I have THIS beautiful edition.

cardigan // a book that you bought on impulse

23013689

I buy a lot of books on impulse… XD But one that I had absolutely no prior knowledge of would have to be The Lost Track of Time by Paige Britt. I found it in our old used bookstore in wonderful condition, so I picked it up. While it wasn’t my favorite, it was still cute and enjoyable.

turtleneck sweater // a book from your childhood

56471

I remember getting this book as a Christmas present from my grandparents many years ago. The illustrations (by Gail de Marcken) are whimsical and beautiful and the story (by Jeff Brumbeau) is even more gorgeous.

homemade knitted sweater // a book that is indie-published

26793603

This is a wonderful book published by my blogging friend C.B. Cook. I was following her serial story on her blog up until she got it published. It’s so awesome to be able to hold a physical copy in my hand! ❤

v-neck sweater // a book that did not meet your expectations

22215757

I had HIIIIIGH hopes for this one. I mean, it was written by STAN LEE. HELLO. But sadly, it didn’t quite wow me the way I thought it would. 😦

argyle sweater // a book with a unique format

23395680

I am definitely saying Illuminae by Amy Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. SUCH a cool format! The story is told in documents, chat room conversations, and various other forms of communication. It was so fun to read!

polka dot sweater // a book with well-rounded characters

13722513

Okay, so some of you may have seen this coming…BUT SERIOUSLY. SUUUCH good characterization!! I could rave about this series forever. 😀

Alright, now to tag some people! I tag…

Kate @ Story and Dark Chocolate

Jenelle Schmidt

Grace @ Pure and True

and Deborah @ The Road of a Writer

Thank you again, Mary for such a fun tag! And FYI, I am wearing a sweater. It’s gray with black and pink sleeves. 😉 How are you all enjoying fall? Has it snowed where you live yet? PLEASE SAY IT HASN’T. Let me know down below!

  1. Ooh, so fun and cute! 😀 I enjoyed reading this (book list based tags are the BEST. XD). Out of all the ones listed, I’ve only read Twinepathy! :O (And Little Women ages ago.) I really really want to read Cinder soon, and a couple others… Thanks for tagging me, dear! ❤ (But oh no, SNOWING? :O It was 80 degrees here yesterday and now it's down to 40s-50s and supposed to maybe-almost-freeze soon, but eek.) I'm wearing a sweater too — it's fuzzy and brown and makes look like a bear. ^_^ BRB, need to hibernate… *coughcough*

    • It was really fun! They really are the BEST! 😀 How funny! Twinepathy was sooo good. And yes, you REALLY need to read Cinder! It’s fabulous. Aww, you’re welcome! ^_^ (I KNOW. You’re so lucky! 80 degrees?! O_O Yeah, it’s snowing hard up here. I am not pleased. XD ) Ooh, sounds cozy! Haha, I might need to hibernate too, considering how cold it is… XD

  2. It’s not fair, okay? You guys get snow and we get only humid warmth all October. Can’t there PLEASE be a happy medium? Please?

    But this tag was so fun to read, and I can’t wait until I get the chance to do it!

    • Ugh, I WISH it was warm up here! I feel like a huge majority of the bloggers I know live somewhere warm. I feel cheated. XD But, yes, a happy medium would be wonderful.

      Yay! Yes, you should do it! I would love to see your answers! ^_^

  3. AHHHHHHH. It made my heart happy to see this post on my dashboard!! Thanks for doing the tag!

    I, uh, actually haven’t read any of these. *hides in my book cave* xD But I REALLY need to get my hands on Twinepathy! I’ve heard so many good things about it and I’m mildly obsessed with that cover. 😉

    I HAVE THAT COPY OF LITTLE WOMEN TOOOO. I got a gorgeous boxed collection of classics by that illustrator and I’m SO IN LOVE. I still need to actually read Little Women – it looks so cozy. ❤

    Thanks again for doing the tag, my friend! I loved reading your answers! 😀

    (Fyi, I will take any and all of that snow you don't want. The weather has been unbearable here until just a couple days ago. *glares at heat forecast for tomorrow*)

    • IT WAS SO FUN!! I’m so glad I made your heart happy! <333

      YES you need to read Twinepathy. It's hilarious and snarky and there are superheroes and it's just AWESOME. 😀 And yes, that cover is gorgeous. *drools*

      IT'S SOOO PRETTY! I have a few other classics from that set too! Little Women is so funny and sweet. It's definitely in my top favorite classics. ^_^

      Aww, thanks for creating this tag! It was a ton of fun! ❤

      (Gosh, I'm so jealous! I would love some warmer weather! If only there were a way to transport snow… XD )

    • And it’s not snowing in my area yet, thank heaven. I’m hoping I’ll have escaped to California before the worst of Chicagoland weather hits. (There aren’t sweaters enough to save me when things get really cold. x_x)

      • Yes, I remember reading it when I was younger too! I LOVED it! ^_^ Haha, yeah, the cover kinda turned me away at first. 😛

        Yay! XD Ooh, nice, you’re going to California? Yeah, the Midwest is notorious for frigid weather. *shivers* (Haha, maybe just wear a fur coat all the time? XD)

  4. It snowed? Nooo, it’s too early for snow! O_O I send you my condolences.
    That aside, this post reminded me I still have to finish the Lunar Chronicles series! So many books on my TBR list…
