Bibliophile Sweater Tag

Hi everyone! How is your weekend so far? Tell me about the last book you read, too, and what you thought of it. ^-^ Speaking of books… Gray Marie from Writing is Life tagged “anyone who likes sweaters, autumn, or both!” for the Bibliophile Sweater Tag so I considered myself tagged. Autumn is my second favorite season (the first being winter because RAIN {splashing in puddles} AND SNOW {snowboarding and skiing} {and throwing snowballs at my brother}), and, well, I like sweaters because it means it’s probably winter or autumn. I don’t wear sweaters in the summer or the spring. Do you? aNYwAy.

1- A Fuzzy Sweater (a book that is the epitome of comfort)

Hmm… I’ll have to choose (PAUSE. I just thought of something. I need to do this tag again- but for music. RESUME.)… (what is the book called again?)…

Promise Me Tomorrow by Lori Wick. This book has made me tear a couple of times (which is saying a lot, since I… tear – I don’t think I’ve ever actually cried at a book –  at a book approximately once every year. xP). It’s made me laugh, too. It’s just such a good book and I can read it anytime of the year.

2- Striped Sweater (a book you devoured every line of)

The Mysterious Benedict Society Series by Trenton Lee Stewart (he’s a genius). I don’t think I’ve ever talked about how much I love this series- these books are my favorite books. Of course, I do have many other favorite books, but… these made it into the top of the “favorite books” list, which means I REALLY DO LOVE THEM. And no, it’s not one of those little kid books- it’s a masterpiece of writing. xD

(I wish I knew how to put three images together in one section. If you know how to do it on WordPress, pray tell me how. Since I don’t, here’s the first book.)

3- Ugly Christmas Sweater (a book with a weird cover)

This is why I wish I had more categories on Goodreads, since I can’t think of a book with a weird cover off the top of my head right now. Time to scroll through my “Read” shelf.

Probably These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman. The cover isn’t necessarily weird- I just feel like it doesn’t really match the actual book.

4- Cashmere Sweater (the most expensive book you’ve bought)

Other than school textbooks? *pokes very thin lab manual that was $85*

Hmm. I really don’t know / I honestly can’t remember. I never buy physical books- my library’s big enough to have most books I’d like to read. *cough* Maybe the Stormlight Archive Series by Brandon Sanderson? They’re not really expensive though? I mean, they’re extremely thick books, so I definitely don’t consider $8.99 for each of them as expensive.

(the first one is shown here)

5- Hoodie (favorite classic book)

Oh boy- I don’t read many classic books. Let me go look at my bookshelf.

Okay, I’ll go with Heidi by Johannah Spyri. It’s a very good children’s classic- I don’t read much of adult’s classics.

6- Cardigan (a book you bought on impulse)

No real explanation for this one- my mom and I were both at a book sale and I randomly bought it. For no particular reason.

7- Turtleneck Sweater (a book from your childhood)

Huh. Time to go for another walk to the bookshelf. OHH NEVER MIND I REMEMBER ONE. Definitely the Mandie series by Lois Gladys Leppard. My mom got like 15 books from the series for me when I was maybe… 7? and I LOVE THEM TO THIS DAY. These books are the best childhood books one can have. xD If you know a little girl who’s maybe 7-9 yrs. old, this series would be perfect for her.

(Here’s the first book in the series- isn’t the cover so adorable? no? okay it’s probably just me.)

8- Homemade Knitted Sweater (a book that is indie published)

OH BOY- I HAVE SO MANY OF THESE.

My favorite one so far is probably The Coronation by Livy Jarmusch, but they’re all good.

9- V-Neck Sweater (a book that did not meet your expectations)

Hmm… probably Princess Academy by Shannon Hale? It wasn’t bad by any means- I just thought it would be different.

85990.jpg

 

10- Argyle Sweater (a book with a unique format)

Um… maybe Midnight At the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson? Tbh I don’t really remember the format of it though…

11- Polka-Dot Sweater (a book with well-rounded characters)

There are so, so many books that fit this description. I’ll go with two series I feel don’t get enough recognition.

The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson. I don’t know why more people haven’t read this series, but it’s fantastic and you NEED to go check it out.

1611657.jpg

And The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson. Sanderson’s a fairly popular author but I never hear people talking about The Rithmatist? why? It’s one of my favorite stand-alone books, and everyone I’ve introduced it to have loved it and been completely hooked.

(get the edition with this cover below. it’s so steampunky and I love it.)

So… that about wraps it up! Thank you so, so much for reading! I tag anyone who’s second favorite season is autumn and:

Yep, lots of people. (also…how many times have I spelled sweater “sweather” in this tag? *facepalm*) Bye! See you in my next post!

Have you ever done this tag? If so, leave the link to it in the comments! I want to read it. If you haven’t been tagged, you’re tagged too. 😉

Any questions? Feel free to ask below in the comments!

  1. Hey, thanks for the tag! This is literally perfect timing because I got two sweatshirts that I had ordered online this week and I AM READY FOR WINTER NOW. 😛

    And now I must request the Wingfeather Saga from the library immediately. I keep hearing SUCH GOOD THINGS about it but never got around to reading them. This is the final straw.

    I’ve read the Rithmatist . . . *cringes* and it wasn’t my favorite. I think a big issue was that the magic system dealt with math, and I have a bad relationship with math. (I felt like the references to the Church were a little weird as well, but maybe that’s just me. XD) I’m glad you enjoyed it, though.

    *glances up* and this turned into a monster comment. Whoops. XD

    1. No problem! 😀 I need to see you do it.

      YOUR LIBRARY HAS IT? LUCKY. I had to go through the LINK+ system that my state’s libraries do (basically if I live in LA, then I can request a book from Santa Clara, and they’ll ship it over for free. do y’all have a system like that?). Also, yes, you should go read it. And listen to some of Andrew Peterson’s music.

      Awwwwww okay. Well, that’s fine. Each to his own. xD DUDE SAME I ALSO HAVE A BAD RELATIONSHIP WITH MATH (though I wasn’t really affected by it? idk).

      No, you’re good! I enjoy reading your comments, so thanks for commenting so much! 😀

      1. Well, it doesn’t physically have it, but yeah, I had to go through the request system to get it. Our library just doesn’t have many books that I want to read…. 😦

        ANDREW PETERSON HAS MUSIC????????? *runs to Spotify*

  2. I hear soooo many good things about Brandon Sanderson and also the Wingfeather Saga! And have I read either yet? NOPE. Time to get my bookdragon act together. XD

    Heidi and the Mandie series were big, big favorites of mine as a kid! I’m so glad someone else loved Mandie!

    Thanks for the tag! Turns out I actually did this one on my blog a year ago (not that I expected you to know that, LOL), but maybe I’ll repurpose it for an Instagram post in the coming weeks, if that’s all right by you. ^_^

    1. Haha you need to go read them. *pokes you*

      REALLY? WOW I can’t believe you also read the Mandie series! I literally know no one who’s read them which is sad. .-. 😀

      My pleasure! Sure, that’s all right! Let me go find you on Instagram. Thanks for commenting, Tracey! ❤

  3. EEEEE! I loooove this tag! I think I did it last year, but I need to do it again. It’s so fun!

    I LOVE The Mysterious Benedict Society!!! Sadly, I’ve only ever read the first one though. Isn’t that a tragedy??? I NEED to read all the others! And speaking of things I need to read… The Wingfeather Saga and The Rithmatist! I have the first Wingfeather saga book AND The Rithmatist literally sitting on my shelves! And yet have I read them yet? NOPE. But they both sound amaziiiiing, and seeing you talk about them makes me want to read them even MORE. So yes, must do that!

    I loved reading all your answers! And thank you SO MUCH for tagging me!!! ❤

    1. YES DO IT AGAIN. eeeeeee I can’t wait to see your answers!

      Awesome! The first one is SO GOOD THOUGH. I think it’s my favorite out of the three, but they’re all equally good (the first being my favorite because it’s the first time I was introduced to Stewart’s writing). Um why have you not read those yet? I expect to see them in the “read” shelf of your Goodreads in a couple of weeks. ^-^ xD

      My pleasure! Thanks for commenting, girl! ❤

    1. Thanks Grace! ❤
      I'm sure you can use the same answer for different questions (which I totally would have done but I needed to showcase more books so people can go read them) though!
      Aw thanks. XD

      (also, um, why is your name Grace with the ~ above it instead of Grace? xP)

      1. Haha yep! Oh yeah.

        (uhh I duno? jk, I guess I was doing that when I started commenting back then, because my name isn’t on the username thing, and I was used to it? Is it weird? Lol, I should probably just do plain “Grace”. xD)

  4. This is just THE BEST tag ever. I love it so much. ❤ I agree with your Benedict Society and These Broken Stars choices. And the Mandie books! I think I did this tag once a while back in the form of a blog post, but I'm going to pick my favorite questions and answer them again in my newsletter and then see if my answers have changed haha 😉

    1. THANK YOU ABIGAYLE you’re so nice. ❤ Okay! That's awesome- I can't wait to see your answers! I'm pretty sure I'm subscribed to your newsletter, but I'll check to see. Thanks for commenting, Abi! You made my day. 😀

  5. I’ve seen this tag going around before, and I love that you did it, Lilian!

    The Mysterious Benedict Society–I have SO many friends that have been telling me I must read them! Same with the Wingfeather Saga. 😉 I guess I better get to it before I get mobbed by my well-meaning bookworm friends, eh?

    And indie books! Yes, I have sooooo many favorites because I’ve had the honor of getting to know quite a few of them as friends and then reading their books. Picking a favorite would be hard. I love The Coronation quite dearly, and if you have not read its sequel yet, you MUST! I had the unique privilege of reading The Rebellion sitting beside the author (on a trip to a retreat) and being able to ask her questions about the book and characters as I read it!!!! That was the Best!

    1. YAY KARIS YOU COMMENTED! 😀

      WHAT?? YOU GOT TO READ THE REBELLION NEXT TO LIVY? Luckyyyyy youuuu. And yes, I have read The Rebellion! I actually posted a review for it a couple of weeks ago. 😀

      Thanks for commenting, Karis! ❤

      1. *grins* I was just skyping with a friend the other day who simply was giving the HIGHEST praise I’ve ever heard from her about The Mysterious Benedict Society books, and now I’ve gone from passively meaning to read them to I MUST read soon! I’ll definitely let you know as soon as I start them. 😉

        I know!!!! It was SUCH a treat to be able to do that with Livy and to get to know her in person; she’s a dear sister-in-Christ with a beautiful heart.

      2. Good job, Karis’ friend. *hi5* Friends are here to band together and make other friends read good books, right?

        Aw, that’s awesome! That’s so cool! 😀 I’m so glad you have the opportunity to do that!

  6. Aww I love sweaters too! Unfortunately I live in the tropics where they’re rarely needed. *weeps bitter tears* 😂And ooh I love children’s classics too! Heidi and Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland particularly ahhh. I also read Mandie growing up!😂I kind of roll my eyes at it now, but 12-year-old me was a huge fan and I must’ve owned like 30 of them. They went on forever haha.

    1. You live in the tropics? How cool! Oh wait- you live in Australia. I forgot. xD So even in the winter y’all don’t wear sweaters? Wow, I’m discovering so many people who’ve read the Mandie books! I know I had so many collections of them XD
