The Summer Book Tag



 
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY GUYS!

I went to a very interesting parade in my town today. It was a lot longer than usual and kind of awkward because some of the people who were in the parade created a huge gap because they were taking way too long handing out flyers.😳 Oh well. 

Today to celebrate I decided to do The Summer Book Tag! 😀😀😀 I feel like I've been deprived of tags for too long, even though it's probably only been a few weeks, but I don't care. They're too much fun! So I'm doing another one! 

This tag was created by Kaelyn in 2014: 😊

What book cover makes you think of summer?

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend (Broken Hearts & Revenge, #1)


Broken Hearts, Fences, and other Things to Mend by Katie Finn because you have the sky blue color, the cute clouds, and a girl wearing a big pink floppy hat and a bikini sitting in a beach chair, what else could you think of if not summer?😉




What book has brightened your day?

Disney in Shadow


This was a kind of hard one. I guess I’ll go with one I finished recently, which is Disney in Shadow by Ridley Pearson. This was just a really cute middle grade action/fantasy, and it was intense enough to keep me engaged, but it was nice enough to not be too in depth with world building or anything, so it was a nice one to breeze through. I found myself wanting to pick it up again and again when I wasn’t reading it, and I love the friendship of all the characters and the suspense and it was just really fun to read.😊




Find a book with yellow on it.

A Whole New World (A Twisted Tale #1)

A Whole New World by Liz Braswell. It's more of a gold, but the whole desert theme of Aladdin definitely makes me think of summer, so I'm counting it. 😉
 



Favorite summer beach read:

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)


Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins...only because it’s the only book I remember actually reading on a beach.😂 I know it's definitely not what you would consider a "beach read," but I think it was the only book I happened to bring on that trip, and I usually don't connect my settings to whatever type of book I'm reading. I just read what I read whenever I read it. 😜




What action book had you running for the ice cream man?

Steelheart (Reckoners, #1)


I’m not totally sure what this means, but a book with a lot of action that I absolutely loved was, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. This is one of my favorite books as of EVER and I still remember vividly imagining everything that was happening so easily while I was reading it even though it’s been over a year since I’ve read it. Seriously, it was like an action movie was playing in my head! It would make such an awesome movie with all of the visual effects and everything if Hollywood actually did it right.😆

Sunburn: What book has left you with a bad/painful ending?

Nerve


Well, yesterday I just finished Nerve by Jeanne Ryan and the ending was SO unsatisfying! It maybe, just maybe could’ve worked if the author was planning for it to be a series instead of a standalone, but it just didn’t work by itself. There was a few plot holes and loose ends and overall I just didn’t enjoy the characters or anything really and I gave it two stars, so yeah. Definitely painful.😱



Sunset: What book gave you the happiest feeling when it ended?

Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina


I couldn’t really think of anything, so I decided to go with another one that I finished recently: Life in Motion by Misty Copeland. This book made me really happy when I finished reading it because it was so inspiring and made me really want to look up more memoirs of ballerinas to read and be more inspired to work on my series about dance that I’m writing.😄




What book reminds you of a sunset?

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)

Probably The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, just because of the way the sun is coming through the trees and filling up everything, even though it's kinda high in the sky.



A series you hope to read this summer?

Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)


Well, I’m not planning on reading an entire series this summer, but a series I’m planning on starting this summer is Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch because I’ve heard a lot of great hype about these books and I really really want to get into YA fantasy so I’m really excited to read it, especially because the cover is so pretty!😃


How was your July 4th? And if you didn't celebrate, how is your summer going? What books have you been reading? Feel free to do this tag if you want to! 😊

  1. I totally agree about Nerve's ending. What even WAS that.😂 And I loved Steelheart too! Although I've since grown a bit wary of the author, buuut, the book was fun and totally grand on the humour scale. ;D I hope you like Snow Like Ashes!! I thought it was a pretty fun read. :D

      I know, Nerve definitely wasn't my favorite book. I'm still planning on watching the movie though and doing a comparison post. I think by watching the trailer I might actually like the movie better. :P

  2. This is such a cute tag - I totally agree that Morgan Matson/Katie Finn is such a summery author!

      This is my first book of hers that I've read, but I'm planning on reading Since You've Been Gone, Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, The Unexpected Everything, and probably the rest of the Broken Hearts and Revenge Series. :)
