Tag Tuesday: the Time and Place Tag

I read this tag and thought I definitely needed to do it! The goal of this tag is to name 10 books that remind you of a certain time and place. I couldn’t do 10, because I often associate a book with the place where it takes place, rather than the place I read it, so I did 6 instead.


And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

I read this skiing at Panorama a few years ago and loved it. It’s one of my favourite mystery novels ever and I think it’s fantastic. It reminds me of Panorama because that’s where I finished it. I had brought it to the restaurant to read because I thought we were driving to the restaurant, but we ended up walking so I just had it there with me. It’s so good.

The Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen

These books remind me of junior high, which is when I read them. They don’t remind me of the cringey parts of junior high, but rather the parts when I feel like I was learning about feminism, in a subtle way. Even though they’re books about young women trying to find love, I honestly think they helped shape me into the person I am now.

My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares

I read this at church camp the first time I went. It’s an interesting book and I liked it a lot, but I’ll always know it as the book I brought to camp.

Skullduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy

I read this when my family lived in Australia and I loved it a lot!!!! It always reminds me of my classroom at my school there. There are parts of this book that still make me laugh (I don’t know, littering perhaps??).

Haters by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez

I read this with my best friend in Ottawa the first time we went when we were in grade 7. I remember loving it and it always reminds me of reading until 2 am in out hotel room. We still know it as the fish tacos book. Literally, while writing this post, I texted her saying “fish tacos book. what was it called” and she knew exactly what I was talking about. BFF goals right there.

Eva Ibbotson’s books

I have her three books Island of the Aunts, the Secret of Platform 13, and Which Witch?, and I read them all when I was younger. These books evoke such strong feelings of deja vu for something I haven’t experienced, but even years later I get this feeling. It’s just something about the descriptions in these books. Is deja vu cheating?


Thank you for reading! Let me know if you’ve read any of these books!
