I was tagged (or will be tagged?) by Patricia @ Bookish Geek. I actually kind of hate book tags because my brain immediately forgets every book I’ve ever read, haha. Whelp, without further ado, here we go!
Here’s what to do:
- Mention the creator of the tag, Bookish Coffee Blog
- If you were tagged, mention who tagged you!
- Answer the questions *duh*
- Have fun!
- Bonus: watch the movie while you answer the questions!
