Book Chain Challenge

Hey guys, it’s Ariel, coming at you with a new post on a Friday? Yes! I’ve decided that from now on, I’m going to try to post twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, with some occasional extras thrown in if readathons or months don’t start or end on a Tuesday or Friday. So this week and next, you will actually be getting several more posts than usual, because I’m planning on participating in the TBR Jar Readathon, which starts tomorrow and goes through September 14th. You’ll hear more about that in tomorrow’s post, though.

Today, I am doing a tag, the Book Chain Challenge. This tag was created by my friend Madison from the blog Bibliomanic Bookworm, and when I saw it, it looked so fun that I knew I had to do it. And now, over a month after her post went up, here I am doing it.

She explained the rules much better than I ever could in her original post, so I’m just going to copy and paste those here.

  1. Come up with a list of things you want to try and connect. For example: Title of your favorite book, Author of a book about outer space, Title with a color in it, etc.
  2. Start with your first idea and answer it. For example: (Title of your favorite book) Love and Luck
  3. Then take the last letter of the answer to the above idea and make it the first letter of your answer to the second idea. For example: Love and LucK > (Author of a book about outer space) Kaufman, Aime
  4. Continue on from there for as long as you like! If you want to come up with a lot of ideas for this then go for it!

Let’s get into the tag!


Title of a book with orange on the cover

Little Do We KnoW by Tamara Ireland Stone

This is a contemporary novel, and you guys know I don’t normally like contemporary novels, but in this one, both of the characters were so relatable for me, and their problems were things that I identify with. Plus, it’s really well written. (If you want to hear a little more of my thoughts on this book, you can go check out my June Wrap-Up.)

A character from one of your favorite series

WolF from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

This character is introduced in the second book so I can’t say much about him without spoiling stuff, but let’s just say that he’s great. (Also, whew! It took me a while to think of that one.)

An author you loved as a kid

Fisher, CatherinE

I don’t know if this is a stretch or not because I think I technically read the Incarceron duology by this author when I was a preteen, which, since I’m 19 now, wasn’t all that long ago, and I also haven’t read any of this author’s other books, nor do I know if she even has any other books. But I did love those two books back when I read them, so I think it counts.

An author you’ve never read, but want to try reading

Ernest ClinE

I got Ready Player One as a Book of the Month several months ago at this point, and it has just been sitting unread on my bookshelf ever since. I’ve heard so many good things about this book, and his other book, Armada, but I just haven’t gotten around to reading them, and I need to.

The title of a book containing dragons

EragoN by Christopher Paolini

Wow, I can’t believe how well that lined up. I have actually never completed this book series. I tried reading the first book a long time ago, and the writing was so slow, with so much long-winded description, that I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe I should try again sometime, though, I don’t know.

The title of a popular book

Night FilM by Marisha Pessl

This book isn’t talked about much anymore, but back when it first came out, I remember that everyone was raving about how amazing it was. I have personally never read it, and I don’t have much interest in reading it either, because it’s a genre that I don’t like. But if you like it, that’s great!

A female author

Ally CarteR

This author wrote the Gallagher Girls series, the Heist Society series, and the Embassy Row series. I have read the first two and started the last.

Title of a book with time travel

RiskeD by Margaret Peterson Haddix

This is the 6th book in the Missing series, which I was obsessed with when I was a kid. I have actually talked a little bit about my former obsession with this book series as a child on this blog. It’s about the famous missing kids from history, and the story in this series is that all of those kids actually disappeared because they were stolen from history by some rogue time travelers. It’s really entertaining.

A character who needs to get their life together


This is a Greek god, yes, but in this situation, I am talking about the version of that Greek god that exists in the Percy Jackson series. He basically acts a whiney child who intentionally forgets everyone’s names, just because he’s mad at Zeus for putting him in the situation he is in. Sometimes he can be annoying, and he definitely needs to get his life together.

Title of a book written before you were born

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

This is another of the many classics that I have never read. I have, however, read one Jane Austen novel, Pride and Prejudice, because it was free on my Nook and I was bored one night when I was younger. If I remember correctly, I read the whole book in that one night, and I liked it well enough.


That’s all the connections I’m going to do today. Thinking of things for these categories was actually surprisingly hard, but it was a lot of fun, too. I don’t have anyone specific in mind to tag, but if you think that this tag is interesting and you want to do it, then I tag you! Go and make those book chains!

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
