The Logophile Book Tag

Hello beautiful people!

Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall recently created her own book blog tag called The High School Stereotypes Book Tag. Always wanting to create my own book blog tag, Kelly has inspired me to give it a go!

The tag is called The Logophile Book Tag. A logophile is “a lover of words”. Since I’m truly fascinated with the concept of language and words, this seemed fairly appropriate. All the questions below are based off of remarkable yet seldomly used expressions or terms.

All images are taken from Goodreads unless otherwise stated below the image.


The Rules

  1. Thank the person who tagged you (you can skip me ha-ha)
  2. Pingback Bookmark Your Thoughts’ original post so I can see your lovely answers!
  3. Pingback the person who tagged you so they can see the post.
  4. Bonus: If you wish to, tag at least three people to do this tag.

Effulgent | Brilliantly radiant

A book with a beautiful cover

36491465 36344014

I haven’t read either of these, but I’ve been eyeing them simply based on how beautiful they are. I tend to gear towards nature or starry night covers.

Metanoia | The journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life

A character who goes through a major transformation

Even though J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series is focused on Harry’s growth (obviously), Neville Longbottom’s character grows immensely. From the boy who always ended up having SOMETHING happening to him to the strong and courageous warrior be grew to be, Neville is by far one of the most transformed characters in Harry Potter.

Sockdolager | Decisive retort; mic drop

A character who always has a good comeback

Everyone, may I introduce you to Finnick Odair, a witty and sarcastic warrior who just happens to know EXACTLY what to say in EVERY situation possible. In both the books and the films, he’s definitely one of my favourite charaters simply due his ability to have the most impeccable comebacks ever.

Sesquipedalian | Containing many syllables; long winded

The longest book you’ve read

Apparently, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is STILL the longest book by page number I have read…which is 870 pages in case anyone was wondering. It definitely didn’t feel that long…

Ephemeral | Lasting for a very short time

The shortest book you’ve read


I could include short stories, but they tend to be part of a collection and I’ve read WAY too many in order to figure that one out. With that being said, I’m fairly certain I’d Rather Be Reading is the shortest book by page number (96 pages) that I’ve read…especially since it’s mainly photos.

Serenity | The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled

A book that makes you feel calm and happy

Ao Haru Ride is an incredibly adorable and powerful manga that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Even though there are sad parts and sensitive topics, the overall story very sweet; I’m a sucker for a story with a loving ending where the characters all end up happy. To be honest, a lot of coming of age / slice of life mangas make me feel this way.

Oblivion | The state of being unaware of what’s happening around you

A novel with a complex plot


I read this book SO long ago, and I still can’t get over the complexity and depth of the plot in Colfer’s novel. A dystopian world full of hidden agendas and creatures only a few can see, it’s extremely difficult to put this book down.

Rantipole | To be wild and reckless

A reckless character

Oh Harry…such a reckless lad. Harry Potter has to be one of the MOST reckless characters I’ve ever read about in a fiction novel. Though it’s for good reasons, Harry on a number of occasions acts before he thinks, getting himself into pretty bad situations. Even Professor Lupin gets at him for being reckless in The Chamber of Secrets. But the series wouldn’t be as great if he was a cautious character.

Nefarious | Wicked, villainous, despicable

Your favourite villain

What’s interesting about Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray is that the villain isn’t really a person but a character trait. Vanity is the true villain in this story, which ends up being Dorian Gray’s biggest foe.

Ineffable | Too great to be expressed in words

Your favourite book or book series


Since I first read The Summoning back in high school, I’ve never lost my love and hype for this series. It’s such an amazing story with really in-depth characters. I could honestly read a 10 book series on these characters alone – which I wish Armstrong did ha-ha! It’s because of this series that my love for the paranormal and supernatural blossomed even more so.

Trouvaille | Something lovely discovered by chance

A book you didn’t expect to love


After reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, my eagerness to read this dwindled. Unlike the rest of the population, I really didn’t care for it. However, I was thoroughly surprised by my great joy for Fantastic Beasts. It’s an interesting story that provides a great back story to the Harry Potter series.

Nostalgia | A wistful desire to return in thought to a former time in one’s life

A book or character that makes you feel nostalgic

Lara Jean’s my twin in literature form. Though I don’t necessarily miss high school, I miss the days where my life focused on my next big book read and my long walks where I daydreamed of belonging to worlds that I read about.  I resonate a lot with Lara Jean, making To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy a really fun reading experience.

  1. Thank you so much for tagging me! I ended up reading your post at work and didn’t have time to comment but here I am 🙂

    Neville is so underrated when it comes to HP characters. I grew to love him over the series and I still can’t believe I haven’t watched the rest of the movies lol.

    1. Ha-ha!!! Oh my gosh, that’s me all the time! I’m just catching up on commenting on a bunch of things I read and enjoyed but couldn’t because I was at work or where the WiFi sucked…

      Neville is!! I love him! The movies don’t show it as much, but his growth in the books is remarkable! You NEED TO WATCH THEM!!!!!!! Okay…you don’t…but you should ha-ha!

  2. Those are lovely covers! And I agree about Finnick Odair. And Harry is definitely reckless. I didn’t read the Fantastic beasts in screenplay form, but I do agree about with you based on the film. And I totally agree about Lara Jean! Great answers!

    1. Thank you! I don’t know if I tagged you but either way, I officially do! If you want to do it that is haha!

      I love Finnick! I want more books with Finnick like characters but as the main, not the side. Oh Harry…the stories wouldn’t be as great if he wasn’t reckless though. The screenplay was really good. I actually liked it more than the film, which is odd since it’s the same…and Lara Jean!!! Shes so adorable. I also want more main characters like her too, but older casted characters around my age (so like mid to late 20s).


  3. Rantipole, sesquipedalian, and sockdolager are such fun words! This tag is marvelous and I hope to do it sometime this month. Wordswordswords ❤

    Neville is the freaking best and I'm glad you highlighted his character growth. And Lara Jean is too darn cute (I'm basing this off of having only seen the film). Andand The Picture of Dorian Gray // that was an interesting choice for villain! Coolcool.

    Awesome job on the new tag!

    1. I know eh?!? Thank you so much love!! I really appreciate the compliments!!

      Neville is wonderful…I feel like book readers see this more than the only movie watcher people because his character definitely wasn’t explored in the films as much…I could be wrong though haha.

      Lara Jean = <3!!!
