What Cats Do Book Tag

book tag

Hello everyone! Do you have any draft posts which you’ve been meaning to complete for some time? *Raises hand* I remember seeing this tag floating around a while back. Being a cat person, I had to take part! No time like the present, eh? 😊

Rules

Purr – As cats do this when they’re happy or relaxed, what is the book that makes you happiest or relaxed?

pride-and-prejudice

My favourite book ever, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It’s one of the few books I love to re-read. In fact it’s been a while since I read it, so I’m due another re-read.

Sleep – What is a book that put you to sleep or was just boring?

to the lighthouse

To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. This was the first (and probably last) book I read which uses the stream of consciousness technique. I found it difficult to follow and some of the sentences are way too long.

Twitch while dreaming – Have you ever dreamt of a book you read?

Oh gosh, I barely remember any of my dreams and when I do they usually don’t make much sense. But since this is a cat tag, when I was younger I dreamt that I was on an episode of Top Cat.

via GIPHY.

Seems to play nice…until the claws are out! – Which book had the biggest plot twist(s)?

gone girl

It has to be Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. This is an exciting read, although I just wish the ending was different.

Cuddles – Which book character would you give a hug to?

the outsiders

Johnny from The Outsiders. That poor guy goes through a lot.

Catnip – What’s a book that made you have warm and fuzzy feels?

Who's That Girl

Who’s That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane. Whilst there are some serious moments, overall it’s a feel good book.

Cat breeds – Your favourite book(s)?

Have I mentioned Pride and Prejudice? 🙂

Getting the cat: How did you find your favourite book(s)?

Pride and Prejudice: We read this as part of our English Lit class in Year 11 and I’m so grateful that my English teacher taught it with such passion. I remember she said at a parents evening that I was getting a real kick out of Austen!

Jane Eyre: On my TBR and borrowed from the library.

Gone With the Wind: On my TBR and borrowed from the library.

Great Expectations: I found a copy in a box of belongings from one of my relatives when I was 10 and asked for permission to read it.

The Catcher in the Rye: I also found this one on the bookshelf of another relative’s house when I was a teenager.

The Vet’s Office – Your least favourite book

Probably Lord of the Flies. This was required reading at school and I wish we had read The Outsiders instead.

Being in places they shouldn’t – Least favourite cliché?

Instalove, especially in YA. I mean, I know hormones are all over the place when you’re a teenager, but girl meets boy and then can’t live without him? No thanks.

Final question: The good old cardboard box – Most underrated book series?

I would say the Lady Helen series by Alison Goodman is pretty underrated. Think Pride and Prejudice meets Buffy. I have read the first two books in the trilogy and just know the third book will be amazing!

Bonus

Here is a picture I took of a lovely cat whilst on holiday.

I’m not sure who has done this tag, so if you like cats and books, feel free to try it!
