Life’s a Beach | Book Tag

We got a tiny break from the heat and sunshine this week, but most days it’s still beach weather where I live. Although I grew up by the ocean, I was never much of a beach bum, but I must admit the beach is a great place to settle in with a good read. And this week’s tag is all about the beach.

The Sand: a book that stuck with you long after you finished reading

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. The plot is based on the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics, which is a pretty mind-bending theory of parallel worlds that differ to varying degrees and all exist along side each other. The book is so engaging, and the science it’s based on is so fascinating, this is a book I still think about years after reading it

The Sun: a book that burned you

She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan. Much like a sunburn, this one took a little while to sink in and realize how burned I was by it. I still don’t think it’s bad, but I don’t think it was marketed correctly and the longer I’ve had to reflect on this book, the more I feel disappointed by it

The Waves: a book that calms you down after a long day

I tend to read a lot of adventure fantasy and thrillers, but I’ve been trying out cozier, sweeter stories to spice things up. Minor Mage by T. Kingfisher is still an adventure fantasy, but it’s short and sweet and I just adored Oliver and his armadillo

The Bathing Suit: a book with a pretty, summery-y cover

I don’t have very summery reading taste, so I think The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson is the most summery looking book I’ve read

The Birds: a book that is everywhere

Babel by R.F. Kuang. I don’t plan to read this, as it doesn’t sound like something I’d be into, but it’s been everywhere for so long I must admit I’m curious about

The Company: a book with winderful characters

I just want to sit in the garden of a magical house, sipping tea and reading books with Charmain Baker from House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones. Such a lovely cast of characters (other than the lubbocks)

The Ice-Cold Drinks: a book you absolutely gulped down

I read Half the World by Joe Abercrombie in one sitting, which is not typically something I do with fantasy novels

The Fun Memories: a book you can't wait to return to

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. If only I didn’t have so many new books I want to read I could make time to re-read this series
