Jenna at Bookmark Your Thoughts is incredible in many ways. She’s a wonderful writer, bullet journaler, book reviewer, and a great woman!

Here’s the link where I was originally tagged:


From Jenna’s post:

Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall recently created her own book blog tag called The High School Stereotypes Book Tag. Always wanting to create my own book blog tag, Kelly has inspired me to give it a go!

The tag is called The Logophile Book Tag. A logophile is “a lover of words.” Since I’m truly fascinated with the concept of language and words, this seemed fairly appropriate. All the questions below are based off of remarkable yet seldomly used expressions or terms.


The Rules

  1. Thank the person who tagged you (you can skip me ha-ha)
  2. Pingback Bookmark Your Thoughts’ original post so I can see your lovely answers!
  3. Pingback the person who tagged you so they can see the post.
  4. Bonus: If you wish to, tag at least three people to do this tag.

A book with a beautiful cover

I think this book has been my standard answer for cover art/design. I keep circling around in terms of reading it. Maybe in 2020?

Metanoia | The journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life

A character who goes through a major transformation

Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorite characters of all time.

At 218 pages, this is a book I think everyone should read. I know some people don’t like it. I was assigned to read it in 12th grade, and I fell in love with it. I re-read it every year.

Serenity | The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled

A book that makes you feel calm and happy

I love this book. It’s a childhood staple for me. It always reminds me of the Christmas spirit.

Oblivion | The state of being unaware of what’s happening around you

A novel with a complex plot

This was another book I was assigned to read in high school. I ended up eventually enjoying it, but magical realism is a tough genre for me.

Rantipole | To be wild and reckless

A reckless character

Alaska Young – One of my favorite characters! This is also my favorite book from John Green. Highly recommend.

Nefarious | Wicked, villainous, despicable

Your favorite villain

Lady Macbeth!

Ineffable | Too great to be expressed in words

Your favorite book or book series

Harry Potter. Always.

Trouvaille | Something lovely discovered by chance

A book you didn’t expect to love

This was one of the first books I read from Sharon M. Draper. I’ve read nearly every book she’s written since then.

Nostalgia | A wistful desire to return in thought to a former time in one’s life

A book or character that makes you feel nostalgic

As an author, Nicholas Sparks makes me feel warm and fuzzy. I read almost all his books between middle school and college. I did my college senior thesis on his books and the perceptions of love and romance with female readers. This book, in particular, reminds me of middle school, high schools, and times gone by.


Tag! You’re It!


Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
