Book Blogger Two Truths & a Lie Tag

One of my favorite “getting to know you” kind of games is Two Truths and a Lie; it is the far superior icebreaker games out there because you not only get to learn some fun new things about people but you also get to see how creative they can be! Who wants to answer twenty boring questions or participate in awkward free-falling activities when you can play this game?! No one, I tell you!

This tag idea has been sitting in my drafts since August when I read The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager. I thought it would be fun to start a bookish tag version of the game, so let’s get started with the lies!


Two Truths and a Lie
Feel free to use this image in your posts if you wish!

How to Participate

  • Create a post with your two bookish truths and one bookish lie – but be sure to keep it a secret so your readers can guess!
  • Reveal the lie in a spoiler at the bottom of your post (you can use this HTML code!)
    2018-12-20_9-48-47
  • Tag 8 friends to play along.
  • Link back to the original post so I can see all your secrets!

Two Truths & A Lie

  1. The first book that I ever DNF’d was Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.
  2. I grew up reading Harry Potter.
  3. I used to be a book snob and only read books of “significant literary merit” because I thought that made me cool.

What do you think my life is and why? Answer in the comments below and check to see if you guessed correctly under the spoiler!

REVEAL THE LIE

#2! Sadly I spent my childhood without Harry Potter, I know tragic. I am so jealous of those younger than me that got to grow up with that series! I didn’t read it until I was 30 years old 😱

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      December 23, 2018 at 9:18 AM

      Muahahaha good job, Clo! The lie is actually easy to spot because I have mentioned it before, somewhere.

    I really didn’t know, but unfortunately I guessed incorrectly.

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      December 23, 2018 at 9:19 AM

      Awww, sorry you didn’t guess the lie (but I guess yay for me for tricking you! 😜)

      I am so proud of you Hannah, congrats on spotting the lie!!!

  11. Consu

    December 20, 2018 at 2:22 PM

    I thought the lie was #1 simply because I’d never remember the first book I DNFed😂

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      December 23, 2018 at 9:20 AM

      HAHAHA that is actually such a good reason to think it was a lie, honestly! Unfortunately, it was 2002 and I still remember it vividly. Grrr

  12. Jess @ Combing Through the Pages

    December 20, 2018 at 2:27 PM

    I KNEW it was #2!!! I’m so proud of myself!! 😂 I love this TAG, btw!!!

  16. Christine

    December 20, 2018 at 5:54 PM

    I love this SO much, and I guessed it right! GAHAHA. How fun! I spent my childhood without HP as well (34 in the house), and I stopped reading by book 2 or 3 the first time. Shocking, I know. I picked the series back up once J.K. wrote all books and for some reason, liked them much better on that round. Thanks for sharing this cute post idea!

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      December 24, 2018 at 8:42 AM

      Yay for guessing it right, and since we are roughly the same age that makes sense! I didn’t even know they were a thing until I was 19 years old working in Suncoast and had to play one of the movies in the store and we started selling the most recent book release. I actually didn’t read any until I was 30 years old, though! And consider yourself TAGGED if you want to play, love!

    I’m gonna make a calculated guess that it’s no.2! Cuz it seems the most straight forwardly written of the 3 and potentially shocking to Potter fans.

      I know, how crazy! To be fair I was like 14 when it was first published and at that point I was well on my reading only classics phase. The books didn’t even cross my radar until I was like 19 when the last book was published but by then I was kind of meh. I am a fan of it now, though!

    Nice post! It is never too late to get into the world of HP! Though I do look very fondly on my HP experience when I was younger. I keep hearing about “book snobs” on Internet and did not even know before such an expression existed. To be fair, when I end up reading books of “significant literary merit” I tend to love them the most and continue to read them. I don’t think that qualifies for book snobbery because I read other books too. I overall think that is a rather insulting term to signify those who just prefer certain types of books.

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      March 11, 2019 at 10:48 AM

      Never too late, indeed! I really wish I was a smidge younger, because I was outside of the main demographic by the time it was published and not reading books like that anymore. It would have been so magical! But it was just as magical to fall in love when I was 30 years old, too. hehe

      Oh, I was a total book snob and I don’t think it is insulting to call myself one. I used the phrase here to describe MY outlook on reading, and even then, I didn’t judge people for the books that they chose to read; I just judged myself. I still read classics and books of “significant literary merit”
