I found this book tag on The Book Owl and just had to try it! Before making it’s home at The Book Owl this tag was featured on the blog of Madeline J. Rose! Remember those cheesy poems we used to write as kids, using the letters of your name? It’s actually just like that, but with books!
The original post suggests using the titles of books you’ve read or recommended to spell out your name. The books can have either have the letter in the title or as the author that starts with each letter of your name. I noticed in my bookshelf there are far more books I own than have read, so i’ll be using books I own or have read. I’ll also be spelling out my byline: Noel Bleu, feel free to use whichever name you’d like and leave a comment below!
Night Star: Alyson Noel
N – Stands for Night Star by Alyson Noel. This letter was only slightly challenging as I only have a handful of N books. I have not read this book yet, but I do own it. I have read the first book in the series and half of the second book. Night Star, is book five in The Immortals six book series. Without having read it there’s not much to say but I do looooove the cover.
Out Of Oz: Gregory Maguire
O – Stands for Out of Oz by Gregory Maguire. I couldn’t think of an O book off the top of my head and wouldn’t have been able to find one in my shelf if not for my Nov book haul. I started this series with Wicked but hadn’t been able to get my hands on the rest of the books. It is the final book in The Wicked Years series. As for now though it looks like I’ll be completing the series in 2018.
E.B. White: Charlotte’s Web
E – stands for E.B. White author of Charlotte’s Web. Between The Immortals and Twilight I could spell out my name with just those two series, but, for the sake of variation I decided to use the name of the author of one of my favorite children’s books. E.B. White is the creator of Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little, (I saw the movie but have yet to read the book.)
Les Liaisons Dangereuses
L – stands for Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. Finding L books are hard, this book only counts as L by acknowledging that the in french is Les. This book also known as Dangerous Liaisons also known as Cruel Intentions is a book that I haven’t ever read, but, I’ve watched the movie more times than I can count. I actually picked this book up in college because I found out the movie was based on a book. Finding the original french written story was a bonus. Unfortunately, it’s a bit of a difficult read if you don’t have the time to decode French and old English. It’s been listed on several classic books list so I’ll be reading it at some point.
Breaking Dawn: Stephanie Meyer
B – Stands for Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. I had to travel to my bookshelf for this one but surprisingly I have several B books to choose from. I chose this one, a book that I both own and have read to completion! Breaking Dawn for me was the ending to a month long marathon/binge read that started mid-may and ended by early June. It was also the wedding we all waited for, the wedding night we wish we could’ve read more about and the incredibly gifted Renesmee Cullen. This is one of few series with an ending I loved but was sad to end.
L – Stands for Lady’s Night by Mark Anthony. This was another challenging book to find but I found it. I read this book when I was teenager, during a time when my literary interests were mostly urban fiction. Growing up in Philadelphia, it’s a lot easier to relate to the characters in these books. It’s been so long ago, that although I’ve read it, I can’t recall much besides the main character “Lady” ends up in a prostitution ring and that it has a happy ending.
E – Stands for Evermore by Alyson Noel. I would’ve walked right by this book if the author’s last name wasn’t my middle name. (Yes, Noel is actually my middle name). I grabbed the book and felt the story was intriguing enough to buy. Feel free to make your own judgements, but, the main character is so frustrating that I have yet to finish book #2.
U – Stands for Untamed by P.C. and Kristin Cast. Another book that I both own and have read to completion. It is book four in the House of Night series. I wouldn’t call it one of my favorites but I do love the book because it ramps the action up a few notches. The series as a whole is one battle after the next, an amazing read for anyone who enjoys magical vampires and mythology.
