Hey guys! This week for our SBPT post we are doing the Life’s A Beach Tag! My answers are marked with a K, and Paige’s are marked with a P!
The sand: a book that stuck with you long after you finished reading it
K: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. There was just something about all the characters that made them so memorable to me. It’s definitely a book I’ll be rereading soon.
P: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. Percy and Monty wiggled their way into my heart and I want moreeeee.
The Sun: a book that burned you
K; I take this as meaning a book that left me upset, so in that case, I’m going to have to choose Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi, just because the ending left me so confused and upset.
P: Uhhh I’m gonna go with something that I thought would be great but wasn’t, so probably Umberland by Wendy Spinale. I thought it would be just as fun and magical as Everland, but I was so so wrong.
The Waves: a book that calms you down after a long day
K; I am always calmed down by reading any sort of poetry book, like Adultolescence by Gabbie Hanna, Please Don’t Go Before I Get Better by Madisen Kuhn or Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell, which are some of my favorites.
P: I have bad anxiety about driving a lot and when I was still doing my 1 1/2 commute to work one way I would listen to audiobooks. I think the calmest I felt was during a reading of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larson. The book was grusome but that narrator had a beautiful voice.
The Bathing Suit: A book with a pretty, summery cover
K: I always think of The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. It has some serious summer vibes.
P: When Dimple Met Rishi or From Twinkle With Love by Sandhya Menon. They look so fun and light hearted! I’m always excited when I see those covers.
The Birds: A book that is everywhere
K: I immediately think of An Ember in the Ashes for some reason. I absolutely didn’t enjoy this book, but I feel like I see books from this series all over the place lately.
P: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. Like every.freaking.where. It’s annoying.
The company: a book with wonderful characters
K: The Becoming of Noah Shaw. I felt like there was no plot, but I grew so much closer to the band of characters that Hodkin created.
P: Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia had some amazing characters! My only complaint is Wallace for many reasons.
The Ice cold drinks: a book you absolutely gulped down
K: I completely ate up They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera recently. It was such a great read and I couldn’t put it down.
P: OMG They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera had me bawling! It was an audiobook read for me and I literally would sit in my car an extra two hours just to hear more about this book. It was fantastic and I need to discuss the ending!!
The fun memories: a book you can’t wait to return to
K: So, I’m going to go with Winter by Marissa Meyer for this one. Yes, I started reading it and I never finished it, but that’s not because I wasn’t enjoying it. In fact, it’s the complete opposite-I was getting upset because the series was coming to a close. I’m excited to pick it back up again and fall for the characters once more.
P: I don’t return to books a lot. I’m not a huge re-reader. However, I did make an exception for Illuminae by Amie Kaufman/Jay Kristoff and Caraval by Stephanie Garber and out of those two I want to return to the whole Illuminae series so so bad.
