Me again! 2 days in a row… who do I think I am?!
I’m here today with a tag. My gorgeous friend Rosie tagged me in this tag and it sounded like so much fun that I decided to take part – plus… who doesn’t love a good tag?!
- Link back to the original creator in your post.
- Feel free to use any of my graphics in your post, or create your own!
- Tag 5 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them.
A book set by the water you say?! The first one that comes to mind is Malamander by Thomas Taylor. It’s a brilliant MG book: adventure, mystery, unusual characters, set in a beach town. I really bloody enjoyed it!
A fiery romance? My favourite kind of romance. Hmmm… the first romance that comes to mind for me is Amani and Jin in the Rebel of the Sands trilogy by Alwyn Hamilton. They often get at each other (but it’s not particularly fiery!)
A book involving a journey? Hmmm… Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury (duh). Sorrow goes on QUITE the number of journeys in this book, and in the duology itself. I don’t want to say any more because spoilers and all that. (This is a book I am MORE THAN WILLING to talk about however, so hit me up in the comments/twitter!)
A book that left me starstruck? Oooooh. A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G.Drews, purely because I’ve been a proper fangirl of Cait for forever online. Getting to read that book was like OMG. Also, I will be the same for whenever I get to read L.D.Lapinski’s Strangeworlds Travel Agency because I am SUCH a fangirl.
Something I couldn’t put down? SO SO SO SO SO SO MANY BOOKS. However, if we go for one of the most recent books I couldn’t put down… Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. I just devoured it. It’s like one of those brilliant books celebrating the joy and power of fandoms, the online world and friends.
A sweet romance? I think these can sometimes be a rarity in YA, however I think Sara Barnard writes BRILLIANTLY lush romances. A Quiet Kind of Thunder features one of the loveliest romances I have ever written. If you haven’t read that book yet, please go and do that now. Sara is a wonder and that book is just brilliant.
Fresh air? Maggie Harcourt’s books just make me smile so much. It’s so lovely to read books which just make me smile. Unconventional is one of those books that come along and just make you smile. Would completely recommend whether you’re a convenion attendee or not!
An obstacle? What a wonderfully vague prompt! This could go ANYWHERE!! I’m going to go with A Curse So Dark and Lonely. Having to fall in love with someone you originally can’t stand is QUITE the obstacle!
FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD. Hmmm… the Sam Wu books by Katie and Kevin Tsang always feature food made by Sam Wu’d grandma and I always want to try it! They’re super fun MG books too – would recommend!
Is it cliche to say there’s something in every book that inspires me?
If so, a cliche I am!
I REALLY enjoyed this tag! It was a whole load of fun.
If you fancy taking it on, please do! Thank you so much Rosie for tagging me!
