Since temperatures could reach up to 35 degrees Celsius overhere in the Netherlands, I thought it would be a good thing to catch up on a Bookending Summer prompt. Today I will do Rachel‘s Summer book tag, which contains all classic summer stuff like beaches and barbeques. Here we go!
A book that makes you hungry
Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan. I have to read this book, but the synopsis already makes me hungry. Moreover, food and the beach will fit the summer theme perfectly.
A book set in a tropical locale
This may sound weird, but Talon by Julie Kagawa takes place in a surfer’s paradise in California. Of course only the first book, but still a tropical locale to me.
A book where music plays an important role
There are a lot of books I could have chosen, but I’m picking I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman for this question. In fact, a concert plays a key role in this book.
A book about a cheesy romance
Funny because I rated this book 1 star, but Listen To Me by Kristen Proby fits this question perfectly. I hated this book. It’s incredibly cliché, clichés make the plot. This book is really shallow and cheesy and I was happy when I finished it.
A fun, easy read, perfect for lazy days
Royals and its companion Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins are great books for lazy days. They are easy to read and you don’t have to really think whilst reading so yeah.
A book that leaves you feeling warm and happy
Although I’m not the biggest fan of fluffy reads and that this one is pretty predictable, I have to go with The Upside Of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli.
A classic that’s perfect for long, summer days
I don’t read classics, and have no intention to.
A book that you wish you could visit in real life
Velaris of A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Before it gets attacked of course.
A book with multiple settings
King Of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. It takes place in both Ravka and Fjerda and therefore fits this question.
A book that centers around a group of close friends
Of course Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli! This group of close friends play a very important role in this book.
I tag everyone coming across this tag, but don’t forget to link back to Rachel. Have fun!
