Hey there, my lovelies!
It’s been ages I was tagged for this by Miri @ The Book Dragoness (okay, it was beginning of June but it still feels like it was half a lifetime ago. *lol*) and I finally got some time to do this tag! XD But hey, it’s still summer so I guess I shall be fine! 😉 Anyway, thank you for thinking of me, Miri! It was a lot of fun and I hope the people I tag will enjoy to do it too!

Hit the Beach – A BOOK SET BY THE WATER
I rarely read a book that felt so connected to the sea. I could almost feel the salt on my skin and I loved the island setting. Hell, I just loved everything about this book, but then again this is a Maggie Stiefvater book and we all know how much I love this woman! <333 She’s a master of complex characters and an amazing atmosphere.
Watch Fireworks – A BOOK THAT HAD A FIREY ROMANCE
I think I have to agree with Miri here! The romance between the Darkling and Alina turned pretty hot very fast. *lol* I loved them together and I shipped them very hard. XD They definitely had a rather dark and sexy chemistry but it was so good to read about them. <333 I really wish there would have been even more of that because they set the pages on fire. 😛
Go For a Roadtrip – A BOOK THAT INVOLVES A JOURNEY
The first book I can think of is “The Odyssey” and if you haven’t been forced to read it yet, you definitely should give it a try! It might be an old classic but it’s worth to be read. Odysseus is a really intriguing character and his journey is captivating. 😀 You might even say it’s THE book that involves a journey. XD
Camp Under the Stars – A BOOK THAT LEFT YOU STARSTRUCK
I’m thinking kind of unconventional today so the first book that comes to mind when I think about stars is “A Court of Mist and Fury”. *lol* (Guess that says a lot about the way I think…) Anyway, ACOMAF is one of my favourite books and legit the best sequel I ever read. I love everything about this book and if you read ACOTAR already you should take this with you on the beach! “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.” *sobs*
Marathon Some Movies – A BOOK YOU COULDN’T PUT DOWN
That would be “Illuminae”. XD I swear when I started that book I had no idea what I was getting myself into but boy did I get glued to the pages! I was at the edge of my seat and always wanted to know what would happen next. If the format of the book wouldn’t be so unique I’d say it’s a “one more chapter” book but since it doesn’t even have chapters this isn’t appropriate. *lol* Let’s just say it’s a book you wolf down. 😉
Go Out For Ice Cream – A BOOK WITH A SWEET ROMANCE
I’d go for “Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda” here because let’s face it, this book is pure sugar for your battered nerves! It’s fluffy balm for your soul and I love it with all my heart! ❤ This sweet romance made me so happy that I’m once again grinning while I write this. Simon and Blue are two precious cinnamon rolls that need to be protected at all costs and they are A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!!! ❤
Picnic in the Park – A BOOK THAT WAS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
“The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This book was unlike anything I read before and I loved the old Hollywood aura! This story is diverse, it’s human, it has a wonderful atmosphere, a complex and morally grey MC, amazing side characters, it has an awesome bi rep, a great friendship, it doesn’t shy away from addressing difficult issues and did I already mention that I loved it? *lol* If a book deserves to be called “a breath of fresh air” then it’s definitely “Evelyn Hugo”!
Go For a Hike – A CHARACTER WHO CONQUERED AN OBSTACLE
Every fantasy book ever written? *lol* I’m just kidding. XD I’ll make it difficult here and say “It Ends with Us” by Colleen Hoover. It’s no fantasy book but a contemporary romance (leave it to me to think of fantasy first and to choose a completely different genre in the end. *lol*) and I loved the MC for being so strong!! Lily is amazing and I felt so much love for her! The way she dealt with her obstacles was nothing but admirable and I genuinely hope that many people will read this book and draw strength from it. It’s certainly no light summer read but it’s so worth reading it!
Grill Some BBQ – A BOOK FEATURING DELICIOUS FOOD
I just have to think of “Heartless” by Marissa Meyer and I’m already drooling! Admittedly we’re talking about sweets here but boy, this book caused me to crave for Cupcakes, pies and cake! *lol* If you decide to give this book a try you better have something sweet in your immediate vicinity. ;P Be warned though, it doesn’t only feature delicious food but also a very delicious and sweet love interest! XD
Watch the Sunrise – A BOOK THAT INSPIRED YOU
I’m sure you can’t hear it anymore but “The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde is a book that inspired me in so many different ways. ❤ It got me into complex and grey characters, it made me feel with the MCs, it caused me to question myself as well as my beliefs and it got me into writing. Believe it or not but whenever I write my characters I have Lord Henry, Basil and Dorian Gray in the back of my mind. I want people to feel with my characters, I want them to understand what moves them, I want them to laugh and to cry with them because I think if you achieve that, then you’re truly a great writer. =)
And umm no, I wasn’t mainly going for names that start with an „M“. *lol* I only try to tag different bloggers whenever I do a tag. Well, except of Caidyn of course! Sorry, pal but you’ll be tagged for eternity. 😛
If you want to do the tag and I didn’t tag you, feel free to do it! I wouldn’t want to keep you from the summer fun! 😀
