Hi guys, how are you? I hope you’re having a great week so far! Today, I’m coming back with a new book tag…I’m so late on book tags, I’m trying to catch up as much as I can with that! I hope you’re not bored of these posts yet 🙂
Today, I’m back with the Bath & Body Works Tag, thanks to the sweet Jess @ Paper Utopia. If you don’t know her, or her blog, I suggest you check it out right away! She’s the sweetest, and I love her bookish articles. About this tag… did you know that I don’t have Bath & Body Works where I live…that’s such a shame! I love these places, and I’m so upset I can’t go there as much as I’d like… anyways, on to my answers! 🙂
PURE PARADISE: A BOOK THAT WAS PURE PERFECTION
More than this, Patrick Ness. This book got me on edge from the first lines, until the very end. An endearing main character, an unusual setting, a little bit of mystery and suspense, well, this book had everything I was hoping for, and more.
SWEET PEA: A ROMANCE / CONTEMPORARY YOU REALLY ENJOYED
Emmy & Oliver, Robin Benway. This book could have as easily gone on the category above, as well, because it was just this good. Between all the contemporary stories in young adult books, it’s sometimes hard to find one that stands out. Well, Emmy & Oliver is that kind of book.
FRESH STRAWBERRIES: A BOOK YOU REALLY ENJOYED THAT CAME OUT THIS YEAR
Because you’ll never meet me, Leah Thomas. I read this book earlier this year, and I really enjoyed it. The story was quite unusual, between a boy allergic to electricity, and another living with an electronical pacemaker. Told in letters, this story was both endearing and touching.
WARM VANILLA SUGAR: A CHARACTER AND/OR BOOK THAT MADE YOU FEEL ALL WARM AND SMILEY
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli. I dare anyone who read this book to say they didn’t smile once while turning the pages. Or doesn’t want to be best friends with Simon. I dare you!
Lucy and Owen in The Geography of You and Me, Jennifer E. Smith. I mean, aren’t they both the cutest?
DANCING WATERS: A BOOK THAT TAKES PLACE ON A BEACH/PERFECT BEACH READ
The Summer I Turned Pretty, Jenny Han. This book is a perfect read, or re-read, during the summer, sunny season spent on the beach with friends, reading a sweet contemporary romance about best friends and family and complications that goes with it.
I CAKE BOOKS: FAVOURITE BOOK
Looking for Alaska, John Green. I will never stop saying how much I love John Green. Have I told you already? Wait. I think I did. I’ll just stop there then, and, if you didn’t read this book yet, well, you should.
Solitaire, Alice Oseman. This is probably last year’s best debut, if you’re asking me. The characters are so relatable, the story is well-paced and just perfectly deals with mental issues.
A BOOK WITH AN UNUSUAL/INTERESTING/APPEALING SETTING
Magonia, Maria Dahvana Headley. Quite unusual, I think it’s the word I’d use to describe this book’ setting. I kind of was put-off by it, actually at first…but hat’s off for the author’s crazy imagination.
DAZZLING DIAMONDS: GORGEOUS COVER
Ten Thousand Skies Above You, Claudia Gray. I read the first book in this trilogy, and I loved the world and the pacing of the story. And, if the cover of Ten Thousand Pieces of You was gorgeous, there’s no word to describe how much I love this one.
Book tags, usually means nominees…well, since I saw this tag around a lot, I can’t think of anyone who hasn’t done it yet. If you’re reading this, though, and you didn’t answer those questions, then I am nominating you! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed reading my answers as much as I had writing them! 🙂 Did you read any of those books, what did you think about those? Let me know in comments!
