I learned about the Book Tag: 5…4…3…2…1… from Marianne @ Let's Read and she learned about it from someone else. I'm not sure where the Book Tag: 5…4…3…2…1… originated from though. Below are my answers to this book tag. Enjoy!

1. Book You Promise to Read Soon

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

I enjoyed answering the questions for this book tag. Although, I must admit that answering the 1st two questions were rough. I have too many favorite books and my favorite books always seem to change. I really don't autobuy any one author necessarily... It just so happens that I've purchased every book published by Thomas Steinbeck and Robin LaFevers (to the best of my knowledge that is) and I have purchased several books written by Jerry Spinelli and Diana Gabaldon, but not all of the books written by the these two authors.


  1. Oh this looks like a fun tag! I might have to do this one at some point! Nice answers too! It is sooo hard narrowing down favorites to a number. Sometimes for me it can come down to what I read recently.

  2. Exciting. Yeah, the people I got it from didn't know the originator, either, so we'll just have to send our thanks into the big wide open ...

    I've read East of Eden and Memoirs of a Geisha from your five books and People of the Book is on my TBR pile.

    I also like non-fiction but there are so many fiction genres that it didn't make my list. Mmmmh ... maybe next time.

    I also found the first part the hardest, there are so many books and authors I love.

    And I'm looking forward to your review of Anna Karenina. As you might know, I absolutely love Russian literature.

    1. I love Russian literature too, but have some how managed not to read longer length Russian classics. I have a Russian language degree from college.

    2. Oooooh, that's exciting. I would have loved to learn Russian, I really should give it a go on Duolingo but I find it hard there to juggle between the two scripts on my PC or phone.

    3. I enjoyed learning Russian. Although it's a difficult language to learn as the grammar is so different from English.

    4. True. But the grammar of most languages is different from English. There usually is one. ;)
