What’s On My Bookshelf Tag

Header - FionaHappy Labor Day, dolls! While most of you likely have more extravagant plans than I do for this weekend, I hope to kick back and finish a book! Reading will forever be my at-home vacation! Since it’s Monday, I present to you, another book tag! I was tagged for this one by the wonderful Rachael from Beach Bookworm. Thanks, love! If you haven’t checked out her blog before, what are you waiting for!? She posts the most charming reviews, and her Bookstagram account is beyond gorgeous! This tag was originally created by Emily from Wicked Good Reads.

Section dividerA Library Book


The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke. Strictly speaking, this novel is not in fact from a Public library. I’ve been borrowing it from a friend, who has her own personal library of Young Adult novels that is constantly overflowing. I suppose this counts, right? *innocently smiles*

A Book You Got As A Gift


Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. I received this book as a present for my birthday last year. A brilliant gift!

A Childhood Book


The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Jester. If my memory serves me well, this is one of the first books I read with a male protagonist. Oh, how I was such a sexist child!

A Magical Book


The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater.

A Romantic Book


Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. (Just think about it for a moment … Hehe)

An Old Book


Emma by Jane Austen.

A Book That Makes You Happy And/Or Laugh


The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. The Percy Jackson novels will never cease to brighten my day! I can simply flip to any chapter, and be absorbed for an hour or two!

Section divider

A Book That Makes You Emotional


A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I don’t reread novels too often, but I have read this story at least three or four times. Maybe I feed off sadness and misery? Nevertheless, this is truly one of the most emotional, yet beautiful, tales about loss I have ever read.

A Book Whose Ending You Dislike


The Death Cure by James Dashner.

A Book You Wish Had Illustrations


Winter by Marissa Meyer. I’m aware that there are graphic novels for this series now, but I would’ve loved to have seen illustrations in this book!

A Book Or Genre You Love To Read On A Rainy Day


How could I not choose the Harry Potter books!

  1. Ooh, I’m thinking about reading The Girl with the Red Balloon too! I requested it on Netgalley way back in the day (and got denied *sobs*), but I’m still interested. And yesss about A Monster Calls; it’s just one of my favorite books to this day, so I’m happy to see it appreciated. 😉 Terrific answers!

    1. My friend loaned it to me ages ago, so I need to get to it! And I was approved for an ARC of its sequel that releases in a month, so that’s a bit more motivation! Haha. I love A Monster Calls with all my heart! Such a magnificent piece of work! ❤️❤️


  2. Hello Kelly! Thanks for the tag 🙂 I already wrote up my post which will be up later this week!
    I would absolutely read HP on a rainy day. I enjoyed Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson so I am curious about Since You’ve Been Gone!

  3. YAY FOR THE PERCY JACKSON BOOKS! I always find myself rereading my favorite scenes whenever I need a pick-me-up. ♥ And you’re making me really glad I never got around to finishing the Maze Runner books. I read the first two, then reviews started coming in for book three and I was just… nope, nope, nope. Thanks for the tag, lovely! 🤗

  4. Every time I think now I’m going to read A Monster Calls I immediately think am I emotionally ready for this? Still haven’t managed it! I did read Phantom Tollbooth for the first time this year and really enjoyed that 🙂

  5. Nice picks Kelly! I love Percy Jackson’s adventures as well, I could so get lost in that world.

    And he he, loved your “steamy” pick! 😂👍

    Have a great week full of entertaining reads. 😘📚

  6. Fahrenheit 451 is one of my all-time favorite books. Sadly, it’s still very applicable now, if not more so. I’m amazed at how much Bradbury predicted our technology (think the shells as being like headphones or blue tooths), and how he even predicted that technology would distract us, and people would still want to ban books. I feel like all schools should have their students read this in their English curriculums.

    1. I actually haven’t read Fahrenheit yet, but it’s at the top of my Classic TBR pile. I’ve heard how Bradbury managed to predict so many advances that have to come to pass, and am excited to see the extent of all his predictions!

  7. LOL I love your steamy read pick!! I was so so disappointed by the end of the Death Cure. I actually really enjoyed that trilogy and was so excited for everything it was building up to be but the end was just not good? It kind of felt like the easiest way to wrap everything up.

    1. I haven’t read Starry Eyes yet, but it’s at the top of my tbr! I loved Bennett’s Alex Approximately book! ❤

      And I know! I'm so lucky to have her as a best friend (for reasons aside from her letting me borrow books, of course! Lol). She honestly has over 300 YA books in her bookshelves!

  8. I think we agree on the Death Cure!
    I can’t actually recall what the exact ending was, but i just remember i was not satisfied. Still, it’s one of those rare series i actually finished, so that kinda says a lot 🙂

    1. Yeah, it’s definitely not a satisfactory ending. Too many unanswered questions and deus ex machina moments. Haha. The Maze Runner books are one of the first trilogies I ever finished, so even though the last book sucked, the series will always be special to me. Lol!
