Summer is here (and is going WAY too quickly)! I have teamed up with Renae from Bibliophile at Work to complete the Summertime Madness Book Tag created by JackEatsBooks.
1. Show a book with a Summery cover! (The one that showcases the sun, the beach, etc.)
I think almost everyone can agree that Morgan Matson is practically the bookish queen of summer. I originally planned on choosing the cover of Since You’ve Been Gone but not that she has published this beauty, I choose this one! Unfortunately I have not yet gotten my hands on this book and therefore I haven’t read it yet, but trust me I will soon! This cover is just summer in a picture: the dogs, ice cream, and the sunny lighting!
I have to agree with Stephanie, when I think of summer covers I think Morgan Matson. However I chose ‘The Moon & More’ by Sarah Dessen. She has some of the most prettiest book covers known to the contemporary genre. And I love the water and the girl in this cover especially!
2. Pick one fictional place that would be the perfect destination for your Summer Vacation!
Stephanie: I don’t know whether to choose between the bookstore or the library…. #bookishproblems I’m not much of a traveling kind of person, that is why I don’t personally want to go many places (Just ask my parents, I love to stay home!). Now if we’re talking about fictional places HOGSMEADE, even though I’ve been to Harry Potter world the real thing should be even better!
Renae: I’d really love to visit the Emerald City for the summer to see the the sun and the rainbows and the light fracturing off the glass of the fictional castle. I’d love to see a Munchkin and it’s also pretty likely that I’d fit in since I’m not very tall either!
3. 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, so what novel do you choose.
Stephanie: At the moment, I would continue reading Nevernight ,BUT to start a complete novel I would have to choose Winter because I have finished the first three books in the series and I REALLY WANT THE NEXT ONE. (ok whew got to calm down here). I have a mile long tbr list, but Winter sounds like the perfect plane read for me right now!
Renae: I’d pick ‘The Host’ by Stephanie Meyer as I’ve been dying to read it since, well, forever. I’ve never read any of Stephanie Meyer’s books so I’d be really glad to dive into that. And since it’s pretty thick it’ll probably take me the plane ride… or a house ride if you get what I mean!
4. You have a case of Summertime Sadness. What happy book do you pick up to shine a smile on your face?
I would read my favorite book of course! A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is written SO well and I love the plot and the world of Feyre and just everything! It may not be the happiest book in the world, but just the writing and the story itself would cheer me up in a heartbeat!
It isn’t a coincidence that we both picked Sarah J. Maas books! This novel made me smile, made me laugh and cry and left me craving more which is why I’m so excited for the next book ‘Empire Of Storms’ which comes out in September this year - not long to go! Reading about Celaena, Rowan, Dorian, Chaol and Lysandra would cheer me up right away.
5. You're sitting at the beach all alone. Which fictional character would be your beach babe?
Stephanie: *Sigh* Way too many characters can’t even be in the sun… I would probably choose Jace Wayland hmm… or like any of the ‘princes’ in the Lunar Chronicles so Wolf, or Captain Thorne, or Prince Kai. Fictionals boys really are better than real boys.
Renae: Definitely Rowan Whitethorn or Dean Holder. Yep, I can see it now… *sigh*
6. To match your ice cream you want an icy cool sidekick! Which fictional sidekick do you pick?
Stephanie: OOH a sidekick!? I always picture myself as the sidekick and therefore I don’t have much of an idea. Lila Bard is most definitely one of my top choices because she is not only an amazing assassin, but she has that spunk and originality! However, Hermione Granger is my number one choice! She is genius and underrated (even though everyone loves her she deserves even more!). Hermione is the best role model any young girl could even ask for! I don’t think she requires any more details about how amazing she is, but if someone needs any persuading let me just tell you that Hermoine is brave, smart, and hard working. (what more could you ask for!)
Renae: I kind of dislike the idea of a hero and sidekick and I’d much rather just have a duo. So I’d really love to team up with Cinder or Scarlet because they’re both such badass female characters and we’d have to much fun!
7. Share the summertime happiness! Who do you TAG?
