reading-by-starlight-book-tag-banner-1

I found this fun book tag/challenge at Hammock of Books

I followed the link to Reading by Starlight who originated the tag. She wrote this introduction:

“So, in celebration of immersive settings that transport us to alternative realities I decided to create my very first tag – The Wanderlust Book Tag. And, you guessed it – it’s all about dense world-building and atmospheric settings. So, let’s get this tag started…” (Reading By Starlight)

Rules

  • Mention the creator of the tag and link back to original post [Alexandra @ Reading by Starlight]
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you
  • Answer the 10 questions below using any genre
  • Tag 5+ friends

My Thoughts

I could easily have done an entire post’s worth of books for most of these topics! I tried not to use my usual go-to titles, but it was hard. There are certain books that immediately spring to mind for most topics after all my years of book blogging. I even debated both a fiction and a nonfiction entry!
