I was tagged by Sofia (BrokefromBooks) a few days ago to do the Great British Summer Book Tag! So here we go…
Q1) You’ve been offered a weeks holiday, staying in a 5 star hotel and being pampered to within and inch of your life on a hot tropical island, all expenses paid! (assuming this is your thing) However, in return you have to give up one of your precious books! And give it up forever, no second copy! What book could you just NOT give up for this great opportunity?
One book that I absolutely without a doubt could never give up, is Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. This book (and the rest of the series) is just everything, you could say it’s the book that got me into reading/writing when I was younger and also because no matter how many times I read it, I’m still blown away.
Q2) It’s one of those rare genuine summer days we have here and you’re sitting comfortably on a sun lounger in the garden, its almost 30 degrees in the shade! You have your feet in a bowl of iced water and a deliciously cool drink in your hand. What book would you want to be reading right at this moment?
When it’s hot, I like to read something light and summery. I feel like The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith (or any other book by Jennifer E. Smith, really) would be perfect in this scenario!
Q3) It’s the UK, so the summer isn’t always sunny, bright and warm. What book that you weren’t especially fond of would make a great umbrella to protect you from those sudden downpours/thunder/lightning/floods we often have?
Ugh, I hate ruining books. But (hypothetically speaking), I’d use Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines. This book is just… I mean, it was an amusing read but nah.
Q4) It’s a warm, sultry night and you’re by yourself on the beach with friends who are all paired off in couples sitting around a campfire chatting and eating overcooked sausages. What book character do you wish you could snuggle up to?
Tobias from Divergent. Or Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices. Or Carter from the Night School series. OR- I’ll stop.
Q5) One of those rare heatwave hot days of summer has caused the roads to melt, the internet to crash and hoards of mutant, zombie porcupines have taken over your town, as they do! What author would give you the best advice to get out of this sticky situation before you are caught and turned into one yourself?
I think I would go to C.J. Daugherty for advice, she’s so lovely and her tweets are hilarious. So, yeah, definitely C.J.
Thank you for the tag, Sofia! I am pretty sure everyone has already done this, since I’m pretty late… but if you haven’t please use this as your chance to participate! I tag you!
