Resolutions Book Tag

Hey everyone!
Today, I will be doing the Resolutions book tag. A big thank you to Dee @ Dee’s Book Blog for tagging me!


1. Exercise more – Name a book that has made you want to jump out of your seat (for any reason)

I actually don’t know… Does wanting to jump out of your seat and throw a book in the bin because you hate it so much count? Because if it does, then I have to say Alice in Wonderland!

2. Get Organised – A book with an exceptional plot

Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh. I loved every detail of this book! So many plot twists, and shocks. It was thought out and written perfectly.

3. Learn a New Skill – A book which taught you something

Van Gogh’s Ear: The True Story by Bernadette Murphy. This book is incredible, and I learnt so much from it. It is solely fact based, and has sections of the author’s research and findings, but it also then has parts that are written from Van Gogh’s point of view and mindset, to give you an idea of what he may have been thinking in the time leading up to, during, and after cutting off part of his own ear. Although there is no way of knowing exactly what he was thinking, these sections are still based on factual knowledge. There are a lot of myths and rumours surrounding the event, but this book really sets the record straight.

4. Live Life To The Fullest – A book which inspired you

Another Van Gogh related book… Living With Vincent Van Gogh by Martin Bailey. This books gives an in depth look in to the life and travels of Van Gogh. His story is actually an exceptionally sad one. From the moment he was born, his life was overshadowed by others (example: his parents gave him the exact same name as his brother, who was still born a year before Vincent’s birth), and he never felt like he was good enough. Despite his constant struggles, and frequent failures, he never gave up the one thing that he loved the most, ART! His life (and by extension, this book) inspires me to never give up on the things I love, no matter what life may throw at me, or how hard it may seem to go on.

5. Save More Money/Spend Less Money – the most expensive book you’ve bought and was it worth it? 

I spent £210 on the Folio Society editions of The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, and I can honestly say that it was worth every penny!

6. Spend More Time With Family and Friends – a character you would want to be best mates with

Ellen from the Why Mummy series by Gill Sims. I can relate to her on so many levels, and she just seems like she would really get me, and we could complain about life over a cocktail or 10.

7. Travel More – a book with a location you’d love to visit

Despite the fact that I have not read it yet (I plan to read it this year), I am choosing Memoirs of a Geisha, which is set in Japan. I have always wanted to visit Japan, and I am completely fascinated with the country’s history and culture.

8. Read More – a book you are desperate to read this year

I think by now that most of you will know how much this book means to me, and how excited I am to finally read it, so it won’t come as much of a surprise that my choice is They Don’t Need To Understand by Andy Biersack (with Ryan J. Downey).
