ThursTAG: Life’s a beach tag

Good morning everyone!

I hope you are all well.

Today, I’m taking on the ‘Life’s a Beach’ tag with all of the questions beach themed. I wish I were on a beach right now, alas, no!

THE SAND: A BOOK THAT STUCK WITH YOU LONG AFTER YOU FINISHED READING

Jenni Spangler | Children's | Bell Lomax Moreton

Oh man. Stop. Quite a lot of books do this for me. However, the first one that popped into my head was The Vanishing Trick. There’s something so menacing and dark about this story.

THE SUN: A BOOK THAT BURNED YOU

A Curse So Dark and Lonely (The Cursebreaker): Amazon.co.uk: Kemmerer,  Brigid: 9781681195087: Books

The ending of this just HURT. I didn’t believe it at all. I think I’ve said this every single time I’ve had this kind of prompt. I made peace with it as I read book 2 and 3… but yeah, NO THANKS.

THE WAVES: A BOOK THAT CALMS YOU DOWN AFTER A LONG DAY

There aren’t really many books I read again and again after a long day tbh. I’m not a rereader at all (unless for work purposes).

THE BATHING SUIT: A BOOK WITH A PRETTY, SUMMER-Y COVER

If this cover doesn’t scream SUMMER to you, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.

THE BIRDS: A BOOK THAT IS EVERYWHERE

Everyone and their dog is talking about this, and I endorse this message entirely. A few of the boys in my class have read it and adored it… not only that, but I think Marcus Rashford is someone we should be looking up to, not pulling down.

THE COMPANY: A BOOK WITH WONDERFUL CHARACTERS

58514474. sy475

Oh man. I am such a sucker for a book with a gorgeous cast. I am a character girl. You can tell me a story that’s just an OK plot, but if it’s got characters I love, then you’ve got a total winner. (The other way round however, is a no no. I can’t get behind a glorious plot with shitty characters). Recently read The Chime Seekers and ADORED it – what a gorgeous cast of characters (I can always get behind a bit of magic too!!)

THE ICE-COLD DRINKS: A BOOK YOU ABSOLUTELY GULPED DOWN

42603984. sy475

Lol, all of them? I am quite a greedy reader – i.e. I will read and read until I finish. Read Ace of Spades in a matter of hours the other day and IT IS INCREDIBLE. Go buy it because it’s BRILLIANT.

THE FUN MEMORIES: A BOOK YOU CAN’T WAIT TO RETURN TO

The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury

My friend Charlotte and I are re-reading The Sin Eater’s Daughter books and annotating them. I have TSED to reread and see all of Charlotte’s annotations!

And that’s it! I’d love to know your answers to some of these prompts!
