{book tag} | My Name in TBR Books

It’s been more than a year since I last did a book tag, as far as I know, so I’ve been meaning to do one for quite some time now. I mean, it’s a pretty mindless but still fun activity. Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled when Carrie @ Cat on the Bookshelf (thanks so much, lovely!) tagged me to do the “My Name in TBR Books” book tag, which, as the name not-so-subtly implies, instructs the tagged blogger to spell out their name with the titles of books from their TBR pile.

Because I’m really an ✨ extra ✨ kind of girl who likes a challenge, I decided to use only books in my Kindle app as well as books that are currently with me in my dorm. That means none of my many titles back at home were included in this list. Additionally, I also decided to complete my entire blog handle: Shealea @ That Bookshelf Bitch.

So here we go!

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
Hazel Wood, The by Melissa Albert
Every Heart a Doorway by Seanen McGuire
Alchemists of Loom, The by Elise Kova
Legion by Julie Kagawa
Elsewhere Held and Lingered by Conchitina Cruz
Astonishing Colour of After, The by Emily X.R. Pan


That Kind of Guy by Mina V. Esguerra
Helium by Rudy Francisco
After the Moment by Six de los Reyes
Thousand Salt Kisses, A by Josie Demuth

Blue Bird by Magda Ayuk
Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter
Only a Kiss by Ines Bautista-Yao
Kasey Screws Up the World by Rachel Shaine
Salt by Nayyirah Waheed
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Elementals: The Prophecy of Shadows by Michelle Madow
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
Fairies of Sadieville, The by Alex Bledsoe

Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking
In This Life by Christine Brae
Trashy Romance Novel by Jacqueline E. Smith
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
Heart Like Hers by Melissa Brayden

This isn’t a part of the book tag mechanics, but let’s just do this for the hell of it! Among these titles, I tried to make small groups and categories out of some of them. Check them out:

{ sky in the deep | the astonishing colour of after | children of blood and bone | love & gelato }

{ the alchemists of loom | heist society | every heart a doorway }

{ elsewhere held and lingered | helium | salt | blue bird }

{ that kind of guy | after the moment | only a kiss }

And there we have it! Let’s end this book tag by, naturally, tagging some wonderful blogger friends to give this a try!

{ kate @ the backwards bookshelf | cara @ the little miss bookworm | bianca @ the ultimate fangirl | holly @ nut-free nerd | debby @ alwaysbooking | marie @ drizzle & hurricane books | karina @ afire pages | katherine @ fabled heaven | nadwa @ painfully fictional | charvi @ it’s not just fiction | mahayla @ nerdy elite | moz @ thecrackedspineblog | fanna @ fannatality | merv @ mervreads | vee @ my reading list }

But really, anyone who wants to do this — tagged or not — is free to do so! Don’t forget to link back to me, so I can see which titles you enumerated to spell out your name!

    1. Yes, please do it! It’s tons of fun. And I’d appreciate it if you’d tag me so I can be one of the first to see your answers. 😊❀️


  1. How do you make all your posts look so amazing, Shealea?! This sounds like such a fun tag! Can’t wait to attempt this. And shh…I might be ‘inspired’ by the little categories you’ve made πŸ˜‰

  2. Oh what a fun tag! The Astonishing Color of After and Children of Blood and Bone are also two highly anticipated books of mine, I can’t wait to get them and read them, they sound amazing πŸ˜€

      1. OH YES that would be incredible, I’d love that πŸ˜€ Sure, whenever, feel free to send me a message, comment, twitter DM or anything πŸ˜€ x


    1. I’ve heard nothing but positively glowing reviews about these three books, so I’m a teensy bit worried that I might be expecting too much, which would negatively affect my reading experience. But I’m mostly excited to pick them up! 😊 I lent Children of Blood and Bone to the guy I’m dating, who isn’t a fantasy fan at all, but even he loved it β€” so that’s saying something. πŸ˜‚
