Summer Book Tag

I think I’ve had enough of the heat, and thankfully the weather’s been more tolerable lately. We’ve still got one month of summer to go, so let’s enjoy what’s left of it and do a summer themed book tag.

Iced Drink: A Refreshing Book

House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones. In the midst of reading a lot of darker, denser books, this story was so charming and magical.

Cotton Candy: A Book That Was Fluffy and Sweet

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

Sunglasses: A Dark Book

The Bone Orchard by Sara A. Mueller

Picnic On A Rainy Day: A Sad Book

If I Stay by Gayle Foreman

Sand: A Book That Irritated You

The Rift Uprising by Amy S. Foster. There were so many cool elements in this story that were ignored to make room for an insta-love romance that I never cared about

Summer Blockbuster: Favorite Book to Screen Adaptation

The Martian by Andy Weir

Dropped Ice Cream: A Book You Were Anticipating That Wasn’t Good

She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan. It was hyped and sounded like something I’d enjoy, but what I got as not what I expected. I think this is a good book if you know what you’re getting into, but I didn’t and I was disappointed

Palm Tree: A Large Book That You Loved

Comic Book Tattoo is an oversized graphic novel collection with over 50 stories inspired by Tori Amos songs. I’m not even a Tori Amos fan, but the variety of talent in this anthology made it a really cool addition to my shelves

Bonfire: A Book You Want to Burn

I don’t want to burn any books. Even the books I didn’t like don’t deserve that fate. Besides, it’s too hot for a fire right now, even at night

Fireworks: A Book That Exploded Into the Scene

Kaikeyi by Vaishnavi Patel. Some books are anticipated by readers way in advance. This book had some hype leading up to its release, but I didn’t hear too much about it until it came out, then I saw it everywhere
