An award that’s a tongue twister is right up my alley! Speaking of awards and allies, I’d like to thank Ally of Ally Writes Things, QUEEN of book recommendations, for nominating me for the Black Cat Blue Sea Award! I haven’t seen this award outside of Ally’s blog, so I’m excited to pass it on to a few bloggers below.
Are there any topics that make you automatically interested in a book?
I mostly love books that have anything to do with summer, but I’m particularly drawn to summer camp reads (ex: The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord), ice cream reads (ex: Siobhan Vivian’s Stay Sweet and Jenna Evans Welch’s Love & Gelato), and books that take place in beach towns (ex: almost all of Sarah Dessen’s books).
Favorite book you’d never admit is a favorite?
I’m pretty open about my favorite books, so I’ll go with a favorite book that I don’t talk about much: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell! Attachments often gets mixed reviews, but it’s my favorite adult book from Rainbow Rowell and it’s so funny! I have a note on my phone that is specifically for Attachments quotes.
Are there any authors you’d never read anything from? Why?
Fortunately and unfortunately, there are authors on my TBR that I haven’t read yet. Fortunately because I am always excited to try new authors, but unfortunately because that means my TBR is still threatening to crush me. I’d love to make a whole post about authors I haven’t read from (thanks for the inspiration Ally!), so I’ll only include two below:
Claire Legrand– I thought I had a good excuse about why I haven’t read anything by Claire Legrand because her much-loved Furyborn just came out in May. Until I went on Goodreads and saw that she’s written 5 other books before Furyborn. While I’m actually not too interested in Furyborn, I’m really excited to read her fall release, Sawkill Girls, which I have an ARC of!
Kasie West- Anddd here’s another author where I have no excuse about why I haven’t read their books yet. Kasie West seems like a contemporary queen, and as a contemporary reading queen, I can’t believe I haven’t read one of her books yet. Luckily, I recently picked up Listen to Your Heart, which I plan on reading this summer!
