Jenna at Bookmark Your Thoughts is incredible in many ways. She’s a wonderful writer, bullet journaler, book reviewer, and a great woman!
Here’s the link where I was originally tagged:
From Jenna’s post:
Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall recently created her own book blog tag called The High School Stereotypes Book Tag. Always wanting to create my own book blog tag, Kelly has inspired me to give it a go!
The tag is called The Logophile Book Tag. A logophile is “a lover of words.” Since I’m truly fascinated with the concept of language and words, this seemed fairly appropriate. All the questions below are based off of remarkable yet seldomly used expressions or terms.
- Thank the person who tagged you (you can skip me ha-ha)

Effulgent | Brilliantly radiant
A book with a beautiful cover
I think this book has been my standard answer for cover art/design. I keep circling around in terms of reading it. Maybe in 2020?
Metanoia | The journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life
A character who goes through a major transformation
I remember learning about the book through Wishbone.
Sockdolager | Decisive retort; mic drop
A character who always has a good comebackSherlock Holmes is one of my favorite characters of all time.
Sesquipedalian | Containing many syllables; long winded
The longest book you’ve read
- The Bible, roughly 1,200 pages.
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, 759 pages.
Ephemeral | Lasting for a very short time
The shortest book you’ve read
At 218 pages, this is a book I think everyone should read. I know some people don’t like it. I was assigned to read it in 12th grade, and I fell in love with it. I re-read it every year.
Serenity | The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled
A book that makes you feel calm and happy
I love this book. It’s a childhood staple for me. It always reminds me of the Christmas spirit.
Oblivion | The state of being unaware of what’s happening around you
A novel with a complex plot
This was another book I was assigned to read in high school. I ended up eventually enjoying it, but magical realism is a tough genre for me.
Rantipole | To be wild and reckless
A reckless character
Alaska Young – One of my favorite characters! This is also my favorite book from John Green. Highly recommend.
Nefarious | Wicked, villainous, despicable
Your favorite villain
Ineffable | Too great to be expressed in words
Your favorite book or book series
Harry Potter. Always.
Trouvaille | Something lovely discovered by chance
A book you didn’t expect to love
This was one of the first books I read from Sharon M. Draper. I’ve read nearly every book she’s written since then.
Nostalgia | A wistful desire to return in thought to a former time in one’s life
A book or character that makes you feel nostalgic
As an author, Nicholas Sparks makes me feel warm and fuzzy. I read almost all his books between middle school and college. I did my college senior thesis on his books and the perceptions of love and romance with female readers. This book, in particular, reminds me of middle school, high schools, and times gone by.
