Book Title Book Tag

book title book tag

This fun book tag is all about book titles! I had fun looking through my read and to-read lists and finding the right title for each prompt! I came across this tag on Rebel Mommy Book Blog. Feel free to "tag" yourself if you want to play too!

1. Title that's the story of your life:
Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog

If you've been following my Monday Musings posts, you'll know that our adorable boxer puppy, Alohi, has been a bit of a problem child lately!

2. Title of your perfect weekend:
In the Woods, At Home

Give me thick treecover and mossy rocks and cute critters and birdsong and gurgling streams, please! If that's not available, I'm happy to curl up on the couch with a book. As Jane Austen said, "There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort."

3. Title of an adventure you'd like to go on:
Murder With Puffins

I'll skip the murder part but take the puffin part! Seeing puffins in the wild is high up on my bucket list!

4. Title you want to name your child:
An Appetite for Violets

I'm not sure if we'll ever have kids, but if we do I'm all about botanical names. Violet is one of my favorites. (I also like Holly, Ivy and Juniper.)

5. Title of your ideal job:
The World's Strongest Librarian, The Postmistress

It seems life has steered me into the library careerfield, and that's fine with me! If I were to live in another time period, though, I think I'd love to be a postmistress in a small English town in the late 1800s a la Flora in the adorable BBC show "Lark Rise to Candleford." I love snail mail and letter-writing, and being a postmistress means you get to make everyone's day by handing them their much-anticipated mail. Plus you get to hear all the town news and gossip! 

6. Title of a place you'd like to visit:
The Alaskan Laundry, South Pole Station

There are soooooo many places I want to visit -- pretty much everywhere. But two places that I especially want to go -- and which kind of fit together by virtue of their cold weather -- are Alaska and Antarctica (via an Antarctica cruise).

7. Title of your love life:
Where We Belong

I've been happily married to my husband for 9 years, so this about sums it up!

8. Question you ask yourself:
Maybe in Another Life

Despite being happily married, as mentioned above, I do sometimes wonder what my life would be like it I hadn't married into the military. I can certainly say that when I was in college, where I saw myself in 10 years is not quite where I ended up: a part-time-working pseudo-housewife moving around every few years. I always thought I'd head to New York City and get a job using my journalism degree, or maybe join the Peace Corps. Also, in another life I'd probably be a vegetarian. I was headed in that direction when my husband reignited my carnivorous side. And if I hadn't married Jarrod I never would've taken that year off work in 2008, so I wouldn't have taken up knitting, one of my favorite things to do. What would my hobbies be instead?!

9. Title of a kingdom you want to rule or name:

Ok, so this is the name of the series, not the book, but oh well. I'm not even sure if Temeraire means anything or if it's just a made-up word, but I love it! Also, the books feature sentient dragons (and the titular character is absolutely the most lovable dragon you'll ever meet) so if there are dragons in my kingdom, all the better!

10. Title you'd name your band:

I love the name Artemis -- and in fact I lobbied to name our cat after the moon goddess by was vetoed but my husband. I think it'd make a great name for a girl band!


  1. Yay glad you did this tag! Artemis is such a great name for a band. I love all your botanical names - especially Juniper. Maybe in Another Life is such a good answer for the question you ask yourself!

    1. I love the name Holly too, and I just added it to the post. When I was filling it out last night I knew one was escaping me!

      Thanks for sharing it -- it was really fun to put together! :)

  2. What a fun tag. Maybe I'll consider doing this one. I love the name Juniper and since I am pretty much resigned to having 4-legged children, I could come up with some pretty interesting names. Artemis is an awesome band name by the way!

    1. I know! In all honestly, those might end up being pet names for us too! (And I added Holly to the post -- I knew I was forgetting one that I especially liked when I threw this together last night.)

      You should definitely do this tag -- I enjoyed putting it together (and it forced me to scroll through my to-read list and remember all those books I forgot I wanted to read...).

  3. The Bil Bryson book sounds good.

    1. I love Bill! I'm slowly making my way through all of his books.

  4. I think if I played, my first two might have the same books listed! I also love the idea of being an old-timey postmistress. I was so obsessed with mail and post offices when I was a kid. (Though I think I tried to read that book and couldn't get into it.)

    1. Unfortunately, I haven't heard very good things about "The Postmistress," so I'm not surprised you couldn't get into it. I picked it up a few years ago during Borders' going out of business sale and it's been sitting on my bookshelf ever since. One day I'll give it a try!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
