Birthday Book Tag

Image
Soo, I recently found this tag on LibroLiv's Blog and thought I would do it as my birthday is next week on the 2nd of November! 

1. Count your birth day along your bookshelf and then subtract your birth month. What book does it land on? 

The BFG by Roald Dahl. This is my all time favourite childhood book. This is the first book I remember picking up and reading. I then fell in love with his work and continued to read The Witches and many more of his books.




2. If you could spend your birthday with any fictional character who would it be and why?

These books started my love for reading and my admiration for diving into new worlds. I will forever and always be in the Harry Potter fandom. 

Shadowhunter Fandom - TMI & TID:
I am also a member of the shadowhunter fandom of course. How could I not be? My love for not only the concept for shadowhunters, but the amazing characters we are introduced to in these books. Especially Magnus a…

Goodreads Summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.
