Yakkety Yak...Let's Chat

Another book tag in just a few months?  Haha, yes, decided to do another.  I spotted this one on Angela @ Angel’s Guilty Pleasures blog and it was originally put together by Rantings of a Reading Addict.  I chose it because I thought it would be fun to give you hints about me through books.


Find A Book For Each of Your Initials:

‘S’ Southern Spirits by Angie Fox
‘R’ Remember When by T. Torrest
‘M’ Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley

Count Your Age on the Shelf. Which book is it?

Book number 45 on my Kindle shelf is Nana Malone’s Sultry in Stilettos

Book number 45 on my actual shelf is Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs

Review Christmas Kitsch by Amy LanePick a Book Set In Your City

Soul Avenged by Keri Lake is set in Detroit, MI

Maverick by Lisa Bingham is set in Logan, UT near where my parents retired from the Air Force and I visit each year.

Christmas Kitsch by Amy Lane is set in the area outside Sacramento where I grew up.

I have not read a book that has been set in Rockford, IL or Madison, Wisconsin, also places that were my cities at one point.

Review The Sword Dancer by Jeannie LinPick a Book That Represents a Destination You’d Love to Travel To

Just Good Friends by Rosalind James is set in New Zealand
Hooked by Tiffanie Helmer is set in Alaska
City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn is set in the Near East
The Sword Dancer by Jeannie Lin is set in China

And… you get the picture.  I would love to travel all over.

Pick a Book That’s Your Favorite Color

Katie Ruggle’s Search & Rescue series. I do not have a favorite color so I copped out and went with a series of a different color for each cover.   All are jewel toned covers and I love bright colors.

Which Book Do You Have the Fondest Memories Of?

Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
The Black Stallion by Walter Farley
Ten Little Indians by Agatha Christie

Which Book Did You Find the Most Difficult Reading?

Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes was the most recent.  (I did not realize it was non-fiction- liked it, but it was difficult to stay attentive through some travelogue and home improvement sections)

Which Book on Your TBR Pile Will Give You The Biggest Sense of Accomplishment?

Ascendant by Richard Denoncourt.  It’s 672 pages

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons.  It’s 637 pages

And don’t get me started on all those boxed sets that I added to my Kindle because they were only a buck at the time.

And there you have it.  A bit about me and a lot about my books.  Feel free to consider yourself tagged and/or share remarks on the tag questions or my responses.  Loved to see what you think!

    • Oh yay, glad you could see me sharing your tag, Angela. 🙂

  • It really was a fun one, Geybie. Hope you get the chance to try one.

    Oh yes, I’ve heard fabulous things about The Bronze Horseman. 🙂

  • I had the same problem with Under The Tuscan Sun, but I loved the movie so there’s that. This was a fun post!

    • LOL, glad I wasn’t the only one who made that mistake. Movie was definitely more my thing.

  • Karen

    I read Under the Tuscan Sun years ago before blogging and loved it. I’m not sure I would like it now.
    Fun tag!

    For What It’s Worth

    • I have several books that were definitely ones I wouldn’t like now, but thought they were great at the time. This one was good, but I definitely had to push through on some sections. 🙂

  • RO

    Hey Shari and Happy Sunday to you! What a fun and interesting way to get to know more about you! Hugs…RO

    • Thanks, Ro! I had a good time putting it together. 🙂

  • Great book tag you have here. Some wonderful classics you listed, I have fond memories of Anne of Green Gables, such a wonderful book.

    • Thanks, Renee! It was fun to pull out some of my long-time and first-time favorites. 🙂

  • Greg Hill

    I’ve never read The Black Stallion but loved the movie as a kid. Heck I still do.

    Cool travel destinations too! I’d love to see new Zealand and China. Fun tag!

    • Oh yes, that was a great movie that I loved as a kid. Series in books was much better and I just had to read them all. 🙂

      I would love to travel to all the places I’ve read about.

      Thanks for stopping by, Greg!

  • These are fun tags and a great way to discover new books!

    • Oh yes, I like that part about tags, too, Kimberly.

  • What fun tags! Oh I was the same way with Under the Tuscan Sun. I also didn’t realize at first it was a memoir. I also loved The Black Stallion.

    • LOL, I am so glad I wasn’t the only one. That was a big shocker. I still waggle my finger at one of my library aides who talked me into it and didn’t share that part.

      I feel such nostalgia over The Black Stallion series.

  • Fun tag! I think I read The Black Stallion as a child. I read The Bronze Horseman last year and liked it.

    • It was a definite fun one, Carole. I am determined to read The Bronze Horsemen sooner than later.

  • Love this tag, I’ll have to try it ! I had no idea Under The Tuscan Sun was non-fiction, I guess it’s like Eat Pray Love ?

    • Oh maybe, I’ve not read that one, but if it was non-fic journal type thoughts, then yes.

      Glad you loved the tag, KE. Hope you get the chance. 🙂

  • What fun! I love book tags and getting to know bloggers better!

    • I love that about the tags, too. Plus they are just so fun for matching up books. 🙂
