The Toronto Book Tag was created by Joey from Thoughts and Afterthoughts and Ambur from Burning Impossibly Bright. Compare books to your (least?) favourite parts of Toronto living!
“The Six”– A book with numbers in its name
“Queen Street” – Favourite bookish merch
BOOK SLEEVES! Oh.My.God. I love these things. I currently own 4 and my 5th in whizzing it’s way to me now. My two favourites are the Book Biff and Book Beau. Both shop owners are also super sweet and I adore them.
“CN Tower” – The tallest/biggest book on your shelf
Goodreads lists this edition at 766 pages. I totally thought ACOMAF would be the longest but J.K. has it beat!
“The DVP” – Most well read/worn out book you own
My original edition of this book from when I was in elementary school is so beat up, the pages are yellowing, the spine is creased. I think it may *actually* be in worse shape than the DVP. Okay, just kidding.
“TTC” – A book that took too long to get to where it should
Interestingly enough. I ended up DNFing this book 100 pages in after the MC finally got off the stupid train that took up the first 20% of the book. “We are currently experiencing a delay on Line 2: Bloor-Danforth due to a massive info dump. Enjoyment of this book has been suspended. Shuttle buses are running.”
“Toronto Sports Teams” – A book you expected to like but felt let down by (or your choice of Leafs, Jays, Raps, etc.)
“Lake Ontario” – Favourite fictional map
I get even more bonus points because Lake Ontario is actually in this picture! I’m not necessarily enamoured with the basics of the map but this print of it I received from HarperCollins Canada is stunning. I’m looking forward to framing it and hanging it like the art that it is!
“Torono? Teronno? Tomato? Toronto!” – A character name you found difficult to pronounce
For the longest time I read Ryiah’s name as Ree-ah…it’s actually Rye-uh. Four books later, I still struggled to pronounce it correctly in my head while reading. Apparently I’m not the only one though so I don’t feel as bad!
There you have it! I tag any bookish people that know the Toronto struggle to take part in this!
4 thoughts on “The Toronto Book Tag”
You know my thoughts on Hunter by Mercedes Lackey. What even was happening in that book? Absolutely nothing, that’s what!
I’ll keep my opinions on Silverwing to myself though 😉

*insert eye roll here*
Oh hey, I also chose Norta for my favourite too. I know, you’re judging me incredibly hard. But to be fair, my reason was because I like earth, and I like living, therefore: North America. LOLOLOL.
The judgement is so real. It is a good map though; I’ll give you that.
