Hello friends and fellow book lovers! For this final day of July, I decided to do a book tag and this time, I’m doing one based on something I do a lot. My parents usually have campfires during the summer so this one is perfect. This tag was created by Jaded Reader on Booktube so all the credit goes to them. 🙂
Build A Tent: A book you had to read that ended up being a drag
What an appropriate book to start this tag off with as I was actually forced to read this book by Ellyn for our Love/Hate Challenge. I’m honestly so confused as to what the point of this book was. With that being said, it was such a short book but it took me FOREVER to read.
Build A Fire: A book you were proud of finishing
The book I’m easily most proud of finishing recently is The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata. This book is almost 600 pages on Kindle and it’s a slow-burn romance. I legit thought I was going to die before they finally kissed. While this book was long, it was easily one of my favorite reads of 2020 so I’m happy I read it but damn, I was proud of myself.
Roasted Marshmallow: A mushy sweet book you couldn’t help but devour
For this one, I went with The Sprite and the Gardener which was a graphic novel I read during Graphics-A-Thon. This was a short little graphic novel about spires helping a garden thrive and i’ts just so adorable. The art style is so cutesy and I couldn’t get enough of it when I read it.
Gone Fishing: A book that had you hooked by the first chapter
When I picked up Run Posy Run by Cate C. Wells, I was immediately intrigued and I was right to as I LOVED it. This book starts off with a major event within the first or second chapter so once that happened, I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.
Skipping Rocks: A book or series you DNF’D
For this one, I went with a slightly shocking answer and that’s Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers. This is one I started on audio and just couldn’t get into it. I might go back to it but this one didn’t work for me when I first started it.
Camp Fire Songs: A book so good you are always found singing its praises
No surprise with this one.
The Night Sky: A book that made you think deeply about an aspect of the world
For this one, I went with Pemmican Wars which was a book I read during Graphics-A-Thon as it was written by an indigenous author. I feel like I learned so much about what indigenous people were dealing with and actually about them rather than what I learned in school. I also learned about the Pemmican War which I didn’t even know about??? It was so short but so informative.
The Tear Down: A book that’s ending was bittersweet
For this one, I decided to go with A Big Surprise for Valentine’s Day by Jackie Lau and I decided on this one because I didn’t want this series to end. It’s somewhat of a cop-out answer but I saw this book and knew I had to feature it.
