Summer Reader Book Tag

Jess @Reads and Dreams tagged me a while ago to do the Summer Reader book tag. It is summer in Australia, even though the entirety of December has only been between 16c-22c in Melbourne so far. It felt like it was over 30c everyday in November, so that is really weird. Summer is my favourite season because I love going outside when it is hot, and winter is stupid. Let’s get onto the tag!

Lemonade: Pick A Book That Started Off Bitter But Then Got Better

Earlier this year I read I See You by Clare McKintosh and it took me a few days to read the first few chapters. After a while I really got into it and thought it was quite thrilling towards the end. The bitterness in the beginning came from the fact that the story was a little confusing and I didn’t know where the plot was going. My review.

Golden Sun: Pick A Book That Made You Smile Beyond Compare

Seeing as it’s Christmas soon, the first thing I thought of was My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins. I loved many of the stories in this book. My review.

Tropical Flowers: Pick A Book Set In A Different Country

Pretty much every book I read is set in a different country! I think I’ve only read about two books this year that were set in Australia. I’ll go with the book I’m currently reading, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han, which is set in the United States.

Beach Sand: Pick A Book That Was Grainy And The Plot Never Developed

The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer was a book that killed me to get through because the plot was confusing. I think I skimmed the last part. It was such a difficult book to read!

Green Grass: Pick A Character That Was Full Of Life Making You Smile

Vivian in Moxie really made me smile! I adored her courage and ability to fight for a change at her school.

Watermelon: Pick A Book That Had Some Juicy Secrets

Amy Poehler’s Yes Please was filled with Saturday Night Live behind-the-scenes action and funny moments from Parks and Recreation. Those are two of my favourite shows and I learned a lot about what it was like to work on those shows.

Sun Hat: Pick A Book With A Vast Universe

First of all, I like how the creator of this tag combined “sun hat” with “vast universe”. Can I just use Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling for this answer? I’ve never really enjoyed a book with a vast universe, except for Harry Potter.

BBQ: Pick A Book In Which A Character Is Portrayed As A Hunk

Dimitri in Vampire Academy. It’s hard to think of a character who is a real “hunk”.

I Tag

Well summer is only happening for half of the world, and I don’t really know many Aussie or Kiwi blogs, so I won’t bother tagging anyone. But if it’s summer for you, then go ahead!

  1. Awesome tag, Charlotte! ❤ I'm currently reading My True Love Gave to Me and it honestly it hasn't been super thrilling thus far, but I hope the later stories will capture my heart 🙂
    I'm also really curious to try Yes Please and Jenny Han's books (I read her short story and thought it was cute but a bit lacking? Oh well)

    1. Thanks! ❤️ I totally understand, short story books can be a bit underwhelming sometimes. I can’t remember if the good stories were at the start or end, but there were a few good ones there 🙂 Oh yeah, Jenny Han’s story was a bit random! Her book To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is really good though. And Yes Please is amazing 😀
