The Name Book Tag

A lot of blogs I follow have been doing this tag where they use books to spell out their blog name. It sounded interesting and, since I had no other idea for want to do today, I thought why not recycle someone else’s idea?

I will be spelling out my blog name as MADAME WRITER (not adding the blog…because why?).

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

This book is one of the best historical novels I have ever read. Not only is it well-paced, but the characters are fascinating and the setting is well-developed. 5/5 stars.

Animal Farm by George Orwell

This is one book I think everyone should read in this day and age, and it is a perfect example of an analogy. I love it, though it is a sobering book. 5/5 stars.

Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede

This was one of my favorite series when I was twelve or so (this being the first book). It has a quirky humor to match my own, and such a unique dragon’s world! 5/5 stars.

Arabian Nights by Anonymous

This book is a challenging read (being over a thousand pages), but is well-worth spending the time absorbing it. It is fun, but also filled with deep lessons. 5/5 stars.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

The idea of this book is great, as is the strange photography within. However, the development of the characters and the lack of focused plot really bugged me. Still an interesting book, but not one which made me interested to read its sequels. 3/5 stars.

Earthsong by Crystal Yates

This is a graphic novel which my sister introduced me to. The drawing is beautiful and I enjoy the plot of this first book. However, I gave up reading after the second book, as the plot really stagnated. 4/5 stars.

Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor

The world in this fantasy book is great, but I didn’t like any of the characters and the plot was all over the place. However, it’s still an interesting read. 3/5 stars.

Red Land, Black Land: Daily Life in Ancient Egypt by Barbara Mertz

Barbare Mertz wrote cozy historical murder mysteries under the name of Elizabeth Peters, which I loved, but I did not know until recently that she was an Egyptologist and wrote a couple non-fiction books, one of which is this. It’s a great read! 5/5 stars.

If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio

This book is okay. Interesting story, but the characters are all pretty horrible people. But I simply love the cover and apparently I’ve rarely read a book starting with I. 3/5 stars.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

I was so obsessed with this classic in my teenage years that I even wrote a sequel where a young woman was in a shipwreck and was picked up by Captain Nemo to go on adventures! 5/5 stars.

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

I loved this book throughout my teenage years, and it remains my favorite retelling of Cinderella! 3/5 stars.

R

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Rudyard Kidling

This was one of my favorite books as a child, and a perfect book to finish this tag with! 5/5 stars!

 

Have you read any of these books? If you run a blog, have you done challenge? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments, follow my blog for more madness, and, as always,

Best wishes in your life full of adventure,

Madame Writer

  1. Dealing with Dragons sounds awesome! I might have to check this one out. I’ve heard of other Magic Carpet Books being good as well. I think I have a few in my personal collection with that little tag.
