The Bookish Bucket List Tag

Hope you’re all doing well! It’s been a while since I did a book tag, but today I’m here sharing The Bookish Bucket List Tag! Thanks so much to Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books for tagging me!

The Rules:

  1. Link to the creator in your post (Madison’s Inkwell)
  2. Link to the person who tagged you
  3. Tag as many people you want
  4. Have fun!

1. What books or series that intimidates you (because of length, density, subject) would feel like an accomplishment to finish?

Definitely Ulysses by James Joyce. It has such a reputation for being a challenging, muddy, meandering tome! Each summer I try to choose a big book to tackle, and I think this might be my pick for this upcoming summer.

2. What author would you like to coauthor a book with?

Definitely John Green. I just really adore his writing style and creativity with his novels. I think he would be fun, eye-opening, and inspiring to work alongside.

3. If you could interview any author for your blog, who would it be? What’s one question you would ask?

If I could go back in time, I would interview William Faulkner and ask him: What was your goal in writing Absalom, Absalom! ? (I have wondered this for so long!)

4. As a writer, what genre is out of your comfort zone that you’d like to conquer someday and write within?

Even though I think it’s really fun, I’m pretty terrible at writing fiction. I used to always write little snippets of stories when I was younger, and I even wrote a few full drafts of a novel. But I’m just really horrible at writing convincing characters with a lot of depth.

5. What specific edition of a book would you like to own someday? It could be rare, a first edition, an anniversary edition, signed, or one with a cover special to you, etc.

I would love to own a signed edition of anything by Tolkien–although I’m sure they are incredibly difficult and expensive to come by!

One of my favorite bookish photos that I took in front of the Bod in Oxford.

6. Are there any books or bookish items that you’d like to collect?

I would love to collect classic novels in all one edition–for instance, the Penguin English Library editions or the Vintage Classics Editions. They just look so gorgeous all together on a shelf!

7. Name one bookish place you’d like to visit. (Not somewhere you’d like to visit because of a book and not a fictional place within a book. A library, bookstore, etc.)

There are so many incredible bookstores that I would like to visit! Honestly, I would love to go back to the Persephone Bookshop in London, which I wrote a whole post about here. It was such a dream to finally be able to go there after seeing things online about it for years, but I would love a chance to go back!

8. Name one bookish event you’d like to attend. (A festival, a signing, a book fair, etc.)

Definitely some sort of convention for books! I’ve always wanted to go to one because they look like so much fun–so many bookish people in one place!

9. Your WIP is getting published and designing the cover is solely up to you. What does it look like?

I tend to be drawn towards simple covers with mainly just decorative typography, so hopefully something like that.

10. What’s one thing you’d like to accomplish within the bookish world? As a writer, reader, blogger, whatever you want.

I would absolutely love to publish a book one day! That has always been my dream. ❤

Thanks again to Marie for tagging me! ❤

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. What a great tag! I love these because you get so much insight into the reviewers mind don’t you? My dream bookstore is also in London…that city just feels full to the brim of beautiful bookshops.

  2. Thank you so much for tagging me, Holly! I feel my answers will be so basic though. It’s great how it focuses both on reading and writing. I used to love to write when I was younger, it’s so sad how I left that behind! I have no idea who I would love to interview for my blog, I have some authors I’d love to talk to, but to choose only one?? xD
