To celebrate the beginning of spring in Australia, I decided to do the Summertime Madness Book Tag. I was recently tagged by Kelsey @ Don’t You Shush Me, so go check out her post and her blog!
SHOW A BOOK WITH A SUMMERY COVER
The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick is a recent August release. The cover is very summery but the book is also set in the summer months in a coastal town. The characters are always at the beach! I have written a review for this book, which you can check out here.
If you’re looking for contemporary summer reads, I’d recommend all of Huntley Fitzpatrick’s books. They’re all set in or around a coastal town, and they’ve all got great summer romances. I’d highly recommend checking them out!
PICK ONE FICTIONAL PLACE THAT WOULD BE THE PERFECT DESTINATION FOR A SUMMER VACATION.
Red London from A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab! It seems like such a warm and magical place. I’d love to go there for a vacation (and I’d probably never, ever leave).
YOU’RE ABOUT TO GO ON A FLIGHT TO YOUR SUMMER VACATION, BUT YOU WANT TO READ A BOOK THAT LASTS FOR THE WHOLE FLIGHT, WHAT NOVELLA DO YOU CHOOSE?
I’d probably bring The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas with me. It’s a bind-up of 5 Throne of Glass prequel novellas. Since I don’t know how long the flight will be, bringing a bind-up is a great idea because if I finish one novella, I can start the next.
My second option would be to bring Just One Night by Gayle Forman. This is the sequel to the Just One Day duology. The novella is set in the Netherlands and it just seems like a fun book about travelling, love and vacation. I could see myself reading this on the plane to wherever I’m headed.
YOU HAVE A CASE OF SUMMERTIME SADNESS. WHAT HAPPY BOOK DO YOU PICK UP TO SHINE A SMILE ON YOUR FACE?
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella was a book I read recently that had me laughing out loud. Even though it’s a book about anxiety, it was lighthearted and fun. It didn’t focus on the darker aspects of anxiety, choosing to focus on how supportive and loving Audrey’s family is of her and her recovery.
It was a very hopeful, heartwarming and funny book, with a crazy cast of characters and an adorable romance. This book made me smile like crazy. I don’t remember the last time I smiled and laughed as much while reading a book.
YOU’RE SITTING AT THE BEACH ALL ALONE… WHICH FICTIONAL CHARACTER WOULD BE YOUR BEACH BABE?
Without a doubt, William Herondale. Can you imagine him shirtless? *_* Abs for days and all those sexy runes… *drools* We’d sit on the beach and he’d read to me *imagination running wild*.
Another option would be Jase from My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. He’s the ultimate good guy. Plus he’s always at the beach so I’m sure we’d run into each other a lot ;D
TO MATCH YOUR ICE CREAM, YOU WANT AN ICY COOL SIDEKICK. WHICH FICTIONAL SIDEKICK DO YOU PICK?
My sidekick would definitely have to be Iko from The Lunar Chronicles series! She’s so sassy and funny. With her around, I’d never be bored. She’d also be the most loyal best friend and I can trust her to have my back.
SHARE THE SUMMERTIME HAPPINESS!
I have no idea who has or hasn’t done this tag. Summer is also over in the northern hemisphere, and it’s not quite Summer yet in the southern hemisphere. I guess if you’d like to do this tag, I tag you!
