A new year, another opportunity to do more book tag. To kick off my 2022 book tag journey, I have decided to do My Life in Books which I encountered while randomly browsing through book blogs. My Life in Books was originally created by Roof Beam Reader. The rule is simple. You must use only books you have read during the year to answer the set questions. However, no book titles should be repeated.

Without more ado, here is my version of My Life in Books Tag (2021). P.S. Don’t take the answers too seriously and just have fun going through my answers.


In high school I was The Old Man Who Read Love Stories (Luis Sepúlveda)

People might be surprised by How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House (Cherie Jones)

I will never be The Savage Detective (Roberto Bolaño)

My fantasy job is The Memory Police (Yoko Ogawa) – oh this is a dark one.

At the end of a long day I need The Big Sleep (Raymond Chandler) – Oh yes!

I hate Crossing the Mangroves (Maryse Condé)

Wish I had Enduring Love (Ian McEwan) – Don’t we all?

My family reunions are The Gathering (Ann Enright) 

At a party you’d find me with The Elegance of a Hedgehog(Muriel Barbery) – LOL. I am a wallflower.

I’ve never been to the Cathedral of the August Heat (Pierre Clitandre)

A happy day includes Secrets (Nuruddin Farah) – I couldn’t find a book with “gossip” as the title, haha.

Motto I live by The Sun Also Rises (Ernest Hemingway)

On my bucket list is The Old Curiosity Shop (Charles Dickens)

In my next life, I want to have A House in the Country (José Donoso)


And that’s my version of the My Life in Books Tag. I hope you liked my answers. As always, I am not going to tag anyone but feel free to do it if it has piqued your fancy as well. Just don’t forget to tag me so that I can check out your answers. Happy reading!
