The St. Patrick’s Day Book Tag!

Greetings, fellow readers and writers! I hope that all of you are well.

Today’s post is another Book Tag, and given that it’s March, why not participate in the St. Patrick’s Day Book Tag? I originally found this tag on embuhleeliest’s blog, and I figured that with St. Patrick’s Day coming up later this week, this would be a fun tag to participate in! Here are my responses to each of the seven questions!

End of the rainbow: What book did you have a hard time tracking down a copy of?

“Ecotopia” by Ernest Callenbach.

To be fair, this book was harder to find due to it being an older book than the ones I usually review. I was very lucky to find it in a library, and I promptly snatched it up the moment I laid eyes on it.

Pot of gold: When you found that book, was it worth the quest?

Unfortunately, no. I rated “Ecotopia” 1.5 out of 5 stars, because the book lacked a lot in character development and plot development. However, it did have decent worldbuilding, hence why it wasn’t rated 1 out of 5 stars or even less.

Celebrating a rich heritage: Name a book that contained a well-developed culture

The worldbuilding in this book was fantastic. I remember reading this book and feeling so enveloped in its world without ever feeling like any of the explanations were an info-dump at all, and that’s hard to pull off when you’re starting an entire fantasy trilogy. Unfortunately, the latter two books in this trilogy weren’t as strong (especially the last book), which is a shame considering how good this one was.

Shamrock Shakes: what’s your favorite food to snack on while reading?

I usually like to eat crackers and/or have a cup of water or something to drink while reading. Otherwise, I try to keep food away from the books while reading. I’m too scared of spilling something on the book and staining it to eat while reading often!

Leprechaun: do you own a rare/collector’s copy of a book?

Unfortunately, no. I wish I could say I have rare/collector’s copies of even one book, but I just don’t. Hopefully this changes in the future, however.

Four Leaf Clover: Name a book you thought would be ‘just another generic book’, but turned out to be something great.

The reason for this is because the characters themselves were actually pretty interesting. I had my complaints about the backstory of one of the characters because it didn’t help me sympathize with her much. I did dislike the lack of individual development in some characters. However, it was still a solid read, and surprisingly quite good despite these flaws.

Irish Whiskey: what’s your favorite tradition of St. Patty’s Day?

The fact that you wear green clothing and/or accessories during this day. I generally don’t wear green very often, so the fact that this occasion somewhat-forces you to wear green helps me add a bit of variety to my wardrobe in general.

Those are all my answers for the St. Patrick’s Day Book Tag! What are your answers to these questions? Let me know in the comments!
