I saw This Book Tag on Chelsisies Crazy4books, which you can check out her answers here, and as it was a general nomination, and they are relaxing lock down rules in the UK I thought I would get in now.

 

The Tag was done by Booktuber Taylor Talk Tales check out their blog here, so here goes.

 

What are your current Quarantine Bookish Plans?

To get more organised in reading ARCs and the books I own or on loan from the library. This is so I clan split my reading time up and be more evenly between them. Tied in with this is to write ARC reviews for my blog and then schedule them to be posted closer to the publication date.

 

What was your last Acquired book or bookish item before lock down?

dante
Goodreads

 

It was a library book, which is a comic version of Dante’s Inferno, by Hunt Emerson and Kevin Jackson, I have still not got around to reading it but I will, and as the Libraries have not opened yet I, still have tome.
