Summer is almost over so I decided to participate in this summer themed book tag.
Start of summer: Pick a book with an attention grabbing first sentence.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan // “Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood.” This sentence honestly caught my attention when I started reading it. And now Percy Jackson is one of my favorite book series of all time.
Too hot to go out: Pick a book for a day in.
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson // Since this is a standalone fantasy book, I believe it would be a perfect read for a day in. I read it in a day myself and I think that if you have a whole day to do nothing but read, this is definitely a book that can be finished quickly.
Summer road trip: Pick a book you’d take with you on the road.
Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson // This book is all about a cross country road trip so I think it would be fun to read it while on a road trip myself. The book includes multimedia aspects of the road trip, like playlists, photos, menus, etc. which makes the read more enjoyable in my opinion.
Iced tea goodness: Pick a book with a cold setting.
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas // This novella, set after A Court of Wings and Ruin, is basically a “Christmas” story within the A Court of Thorns and Roses world. They celebrate the Winter Solstice instead of Christmas but it has some of the same spirit of the winter holiday that we are all familiar with.
Nasty sunburn: A book you really disliked so far this year.
All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr // Now, I should explain that I actually really enjoyed this book. However, this book does have the lowest star rating on my Goodreads this year (4 stars).
Sizzling read: Recommend one of your favorites
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black // I love dark fantasy romance stories and The Cruel Prince was amazing. I think if you like high fantasy stories that include fae, romance, dark fantasy elements, and some fae politics, you’ll probably enjoy this (especially if you previously enjoyed Sarah J Maas books).
I tag anyone who wants to participate! It can be in any format.
