The "Count to Ten With Me" Tag

Today's fun tag comes from a source I've relied on before, Beneath a Thousand Skies. This tag was filled out by Rowena Andrews and originally created by Sean at the Bumbling Blogger. It's a pretty challenging one...will I be able to handle it? Read on, friends!


First book in a series

The cover to Tanith Lee's Night's Master

Night's Master by Tanith Lee is the first book in the Tales from the Flat Earth series. I bought it last year but haven't read it yet.

Two or more copies of the same book

The cover to Margaret Rogerson's An Enchantment of Ravens

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson--I have the eBook and the hardcover. I bought the hardcover first, forgot I had it, then bought the eBook. I've decided this book is a keeper so I'll take the hardcover back with me to the US when it's time to move.

Three colors on the cover

The cover to Tomie by Junji Ito

Tomie by Junji Ito has black, gray, and red for its cover (just ignore the fact that the fonts are white).

Four or more perspectives

The cover to Brigid Kemmerer's A Vow so Bold and Deadly

The last book in the Cursebreakers series by Brigid Kemmerer, A Vow So Bold and Deadly, has Rhen, Grey, Harper, and Lia Mara's POVs.

Five-star read

The cover to Richard Lloyd Parry's Ghosts of the Tsunami

Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan's Disaster Zone by Richard Lloyd Parry absolutely broke my heart. One of the rare books where I sobbed when I read it.

Six (or more) short stories

The cover to The Starlit Wood, ed. by Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe

The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales, edited by Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe, contains 18 short stories. This is another book I own but haven't gotten around to reading yet!

Seven on the cover or spine

The cover to Taylor Jenkins Reid's The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

A book I can't stop hearing about is The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I have no idea what it's about and I'll probably pass on it because literary fiction isn't something I care to read a lot of, but I've heard the name of the book dropped many times.

Eight letters in the title

The cover to Melusine by Sarah Monette

Melusine by Sarah Monette. I recently talked about this as a book I want to's not available as an eBook but I have a hardcover copy that just arrived in the mail.

A book that ends on a page ending in nine

I just packed up all of my English books for donation, so I've got no physical copies to thumb through quickly, and I don't feel like downloading a bunch of my eBooks just to try to answer this question. Sorry!

Ten books in the series

The cover to Roger Zelazny's Nine Princes in Amber

There are 10 books in Roger Zelazny's The Chronicles of Amber, of which I have read one: Nine Princes in Amber. I'm just not ready to commit to a series this large. 😅
