Abi from What Makes A Good Book tagged me in this tag back in June and I completely forgot about it so I feel like I should do it now before summer is over haha. Thanks for the tag, Abi, and y’all should check out her blog cause she’s awesome.
Lemonade – Pick a book that started bitter but got better
The first book that comes to mind is Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. I didn’t really like the first 100 pages but after that I was hooked on the story and the characters and the writing. I still haven’t read the second book – I do own it – but the third book isn’t coming out until 2018 so I have time.
Golden sun – Name a book that made you smile beyond compare
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, for sure! This was SUCH A CUTE CONTEMPORARY! I know that literally everyone who’s read this book says the same thing but it’s true! Rishi is my new book boyfriend – and that’s not an easy feat to achieve – I have high standards y’all.
Tropical Flowers – Pick a book set in a foreign country
I’m going to choose Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley. This book is set in Australia and I read it before it came out and before people started talking about it haha. It was a surprise to me that it takes place in Australia because I didn’t know that it did when I started it.
Tree shade – Pick a book in which a mysterious or shady character was first introduced
The only character I can think of (surprisingly) for this answer is Julian from Caraval by Stephanie Garber. Basically every character in Caraval is mysterious and shady, but Julian was especially.
Beach sand – Pick a book that was grainy and the plot didn’t develop
I feel like The 100 (BTW if you love reading rant reviews, click on the book title) by Kass Morgan had such potential but the execution and plot itself was just plain bad.
Green grass – Pick a character that was full of life and made you smile
Ergh this is hard! I don’t know why but I’m choosing Theo from History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. The flashbacks in this book were bittersweet because they showed a better time when Theo and Griffin were happy together and their nerdiness just made me smile and laugh but also knowing what happens – well – if you’ve read this book, you already know.
Watermelon – Pick a book that had some juicy secrets
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, no question. If you’ve read this book, you know exactly what I mean. This book is filled with secrets.
Sun hat – Pick a book with a vast big universe/setting
There’s nothing I could choose besides the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. I mean, the characters are traveling most of the series anyway.
BBQ – Pick a book where a character was portrayed as a hunk
Pretty much every YA book with romance – so basically every YA book haha. More specifically I’ll choose The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, or more specifically Carswell Thorne.
I’m going to be lazy like I always am and not tag anyone but if you would like to do the tag yourself, feel free to. Just let me know if you do so that I can read your posts.
