I’M BACK! Okay okay I know I keep saying that, and this time I’m not promising anything because I am very on and off with blogging these days. I’m not sure what’s going on with me at the moment, so I’m sorry if my posts are infrequent but I’ll be trying my best to keep up!
I saw this tag over on Lorryn’s blog AGES ago and I thought I would do it because it sounds amazing. I was only born in 97 so it’s not like I have any memories of the 90s, but that doesn’t mean I still don’t love everything about the 90s!
- Please, please, please steal this tag and spread it around! I only ask that you link it back to The Literary Phoenix so that I can see everyone’s answers!
- Freeze tag was all the rage in the 90s. Tag someone (or many) you think would have fun with this!
- Have fun!
Gotta Catch ’em All! The author you need every book from.
Jay Kristoff – I need everything he has ever written, is currently writing, or will ever write!!

Long time no see eh? If you hadn’t seen my tweets – I’d decided instead of doing Blogmas this year, I was going to take a break from blogging as it was getting a little much for me. I was starting to struggle a lot more with my mental health, and I needed to take a break.
I’m still on a kinda hiatus (I’ll return fully in January!), but I really wanted to do some Christmas book tags before it’s over!
My lovely Sarah from Book Hooked Nook created her own book tag, and tagged me in it! Thank you Sarah! The images of the questions she also created – go give her some love!
Honestly I’ve read a lot of books with surprises – but this one takes the crown! I was so surprised by how emotional this book was, and how much I ended up loving it!
