The Last Book I…Book Tag

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m participating in a fun book tag that I came across on new-to-me blog Quirky Pages. This tag appears to have originated on Instagram and the original creator is no longer known. The theme of this tag is “The Last Book I…” and it was very fun to put together. Enjoy!

The Last Book I Bought

Let Me Be A Woman by Elisabeth Elliott – Nonfiction

I’ve heard about this book for years, and am excited to finally read it myself! None of the libraries close by keep a copy, so I recently snagged it from the local Christian bookstore.

The Last Book I Borrowed

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot – Poetry

As mentioned in yesterday’s Library Loot post, this poetry collection inspired the musical Cats (which I have not seen any version of but am highly intrigued by). Eliot was one of my favorite poets to study during undergrad so I have high hopes for this (seemingly?) less-serious collection.

The Last Book I Was Gifted

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen – Classic/Historical Fiction

A friend gave me this beautiful edition of Sense and Sensibility for my birthday last year. She was sneaky about it, too! A few weeks prior she asked me for a classic book recommendation for her sister and then directed the conversation to figure out what I had and which classics I wish I owned.

The Last Book I Gave to Someone Else

The Trouble with Chickens by Doreen Cronin – Juvenile Fiction

I had to think for a few minutes on this one, and I am still not completely sure that this answer is accurate. I gave this book (or one very similar to it) to my nephew a few months ago.

The Last Book I Started

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot – Poetry

I started reading this the same day I checked it out from the library. I’m only a few poems in, but so far it is great!

The Last Book I Finished

Clara’s Kitchen by Clara & Christopher Cannuciari – Nonfiction

This was another surprise book that I spontaneously picked up at the library. Someone else had reserved it, but then decided they did not want to check it out. The blurb on the cover caught my attention, so instead of sending it back to the library it had come from, I checked it out myself.

The Last Book I Rated 5 Stars

Once I Knew by Victoria Lynn – YA Light Fantasy

This is a wonderful book, especially for fans of historical fiction and light romance. Read my review here.

The Last Book I DNF’d

Jack vs. the Tornado by Amanda Cleary Eastep – Juvenile Fiction

I started to read this book to see if it might be one that my nephew would enjoy, but I think he’s still a ways off from it. Also, although I clearly knew there would be a tornado in the book, I did not expect it in the first chapter. Realizing it was that early was a major turn off for me.

The Last Book I Listened To

Legacy by Shannon Messenger (Keeper of the Lost Cities #8) – Middle Grade Fantasy

I loved listening to the Keeper of the Lost Cities series in 2020. I don’t think I have stuck through another audiobook since then, although I could be wrong. I know nothing else has grabbed my attention the way these books did.

I tag anyone who has given away a book this year to do this tag! That was the most difficult prompt for me out of this set.

While doing this tag I realized that it is almost time for the next Keeper book to be released – it’s slated for early November! If the author keeps to her word, there are only two books left in the series. However, she has said before that she was working on the last book, and then released three more! I think I need to reread (or listen to) Legacy before Stellarlune comes out.

If you do this tag please share so that we can check out your books too!

Until the next chapter,
