Summer Book Tag

Summer is not only my favorite season for the beach weather, but also for taking down my TBR pile! You could imagine my excitement then when I was recently tagged by Carrie from Salty Good Reads to do the Summer Book Tag. This tag was originally created by Kaelyn from misskaelyn over on Booktube.

What book cover makes you think of summer? The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson (even though you could give me dogs and an ice cream truck during any season).

larajeanafWhat book has brightened your day? A much loved and talked about read of mine, Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. Just thinking about this book about Lara Jean makes my heart so happy.

What is your favorite summer beach read? I’m going with my favorite book that I’ve read so far at the beach this summer, which is Made You Up by Francesca Zappia.

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

I don’t read too many action books, but I’m going with The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, and I’d be running to the ice cream to see if he’d trade the book for a vanilla soft serve. An unpopular opinion, The 5th Wave was just not my cup of tea.

(Sunburn) What book has left you with a bad and/or painful ending? Even thoughIMG_4433 my sunburn has been healed with A Court of Wings and Ruin, lets transport back in time to 2016 me with the ending of A Court of Mist and Fury. I needed ACOWAR then and there.
(Sunset) What book gave you the happiest feelings when it ended? Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. It reminded me so much of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, a feeling that my book soul had been craving for too long.

What is one book or series you hope to read this summer? I’ve read so many 2017 releases and a lot of books that have been sitting on my TBR this summer, but I’m most proud of accomplishing my goal of reading the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab. I’d love to pick up a Taylor Jenkins Reid book this month though!

  1. Amazing book selection! I plan to read The Unexpected Everything eventually. I have To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before audiobook downloaded on my tablet. I’m kind of behind on that hype. LOL The Girl With All the Gifts was a pretty good book. I read it this year. Made You Up is on my 2017 TBR list. The 5th Wave is one of my favorite series. I even liked the ending, which most people hated apparently. I’m just now getting around to Sarah J. Maas. I know right?! I have read the first Throne of Glass & A Court of Thorns & Roses. I have the other two ACOTAR books on my end table waiting for me to get to them. They’re library books, so I have to get to them before mid September. JUST finished Eliza & Her Monsters last night. Fangirl & a few other of Rainbow’s books are on my 2017 TBR list. *breathe* And finally Shades of Magic is ALSO on my 2017-2018 TBR list. We have a lot of the same tastes, it seems. LOL

    • Haha good luck with your TBR! I love all of Rainbow Rowell’s books so hope you enjoy, Shades of Magic was good, and I’m in love with anything Sarah J. Mass writes. I’m really excited to see what Francesca Zappia brings out next, she’s definitely on of my favorite authors this year!

      • I have no clue why I haven’t read any of Rainbow’s books. I just got around to Sarah J. Maas too. What’s wrong with me?! LOL! Get with the times, gosh. Have you read Made You Up by Zappia? I have it and it’s also on my 2017 TBR. I’m hoping it’s good.

      • I read Made You Up in June and I really enjoyed it! A bit quirky and definitely different vibes from Eliza and Her Monsters, but I was really into it! It put a great light on mental health
