Tag: Women Authors

That time again, the time I just nick a tag I liked from [P.S. I Love That Book]. Please do let me know if you do it too, for I’m a curious bastard, I want to know what you answered. This time it’s all about our wonderful female authors.

Pardon my liberty to rephrase the questions, and not include the more/less reasoning behind the tag.

  1. My favorite female authors: Currently it must be V.E. Schwab. I love the women she writes, and I love her writing, and I love her stories.
  2. Female written book that changed my perspective/views: Felicia Day’s biography “You’re never weird on the internet (almost)“, and Lilly Singh’s “How to be a Bawse
  3. Favorite gothic novel written by a female author: I’m torn between Frankenstein and Interview with the Vampire (or Blackwood Farm by same author)
  4. Favorite detective novel written by a female author: It’s easier to just name the two gem women who write amazing detectives, for by them I’d read anything – Agatha Christie, and Kathy Reichs
  5. Favorite poet / poem: Not a fan of poetry, have no real knowledge
  6. A book by a woman that I’d always recommend to a woman: I don’t think I read books that’d be easier to recommend to one sex/gender more than the other, so I’m at a loss here too. What do you like? I’m sure I can name a book or two to recommend if I know.
  7. Recently discovered gem by a female author: Shades of Magic, hands down. And then several more…

Tag: Sick Book

The usual. On regular basis I check P.S. I Love That Book blog, and steal the tags I liked the most. If you do it – drop me a link. And if you do interesting tags – also drop me a link.

1. Diabetes: name a book that’s too sweet, like REALLY sweet.
I’ll be boring and say, in a good way it was “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl

2. Chicken Pox: Name a book you only picked up once and never will again.
Anne Rice “Memnoch The Devil“, fifth book in the chronicles.
x2

3. The Flu: Name a popular book that spreads like a virus.
I am glad to say it’s C.S. Pacat “Captive Prince” trilogy for me, since right after I read it, I realized it is being read all over, and it even got some awards in some places I follow. Not the Twilight level, but then, not the Twilight level.

4. The Cycle: Name a book that you reread yearly, or at least often.
Old, basically first love – John E. Stith “Reckoning Infinity
x4

5. Insomnia: Name a book that kept you up all night.
Andy Weir – The Martian. Morning came. Morning went.
x5

6. Amnesia: Name a book that you’ve forgotten or failed to leave an impact on your memory.
Andy Loriga – “Tokyo Doesn’t Love us Anymore
x6

7. Asthma: Name a book that took your breath away.
Dmitry Glukhovsky – Metro 2033
x7

8. Malnutrition: Name a book that lacks food for thought.
Elizabeth May – The Falconer. That’s because I’ve read many just like this one, with differences too minor to make a dent. Otherwise the book and the story in itself is not bad, and if you’re not too oversaturated with these – it’s a decent read, really.
x8

9. Travel Sickness: Name a book that took you on a journey.
V.E. Schwab – A Darker Shade of Magic. Parallel London counts, right?
