Oh my gosh, what is this?! A book tag on a MONDAY! This is madness! Actually, it’s just because here in the UK it’s a Bank Holiday Monday and I’m doing a slightly different tag this upcoming Thursday so you get extra posts this week, lucky you! This tag is actually from the lovely Cora from Tea Party Princess and I couldn’t resist giving it a go so thank you, Cora!

Have a lie-in. Which book could you lounge in bed with all morning?

I can’t have super long lay-ins or I get headaches buuuut I would love to sit and snuggle up in bed on a lovely morning to read the Heartstopper books by Alice Oseman.

Oh my goodness, it’s actually sunny outside! A book that makes you feel optimistic.

Strangely I think this would be Quiet at the End of the World by Lauren James but this has so many great messages behind it and one is what it means to be human and how we, as humans, endure in the way that only we can.

Spend some time outdoors. A book that reminds you of nature

The Warrior Cat books! The cats in these (for the most part) are wild cats with their own clans and territory and I love seeing how they approach certain things in nature, for example, their use of herbs by their healer cats to help with injuries and illnesses.

Make some punch. A book that you find difficult to classify into one genre.

I feel like maybe Sanctuary by V.V James is a hard one to classify because it feels contemporary but because of the inclusion of witchcraft, it tilts it towards the paranormal or fantasy side of things, perhaps urban fantasy but also a thriller AND a  mystery! It has everything!

Pass some food around. A book you want to share with everyone.

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James is one of my all-time favorite books and I recommend it to anyone who will listen.

Light the BBQ. A book that took a while to get going.

Nevernight, I love it to death but it definitely took a little while to really get into it but once I was hooked that was it. I’m in for life now.

Failed BBQ. A book that ultimately disappointed you.

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young. It wasn’t a bad book by any means but I just found it far too predictable for my taste and I think  went into it expecting it to be fantasy in a way that it wasn’t, I am however enjoying the kind of sequel/follow up/companion book for it The Girl the Sea Gave Back however.

It’s raining. Of course. A book to curl up with when it’s raining outside.

This might seem a strange one but I think for me this would be A Discovery of Witches, it’s rare that I like huge books but A Discovery of Witches is one that I really enjoy and I can imagine the rain pouring down the windows in a lot of the scenes.

Let’s just eat chocolate. A book that’s super sweet.

The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neil, it’s absolutely gorgeous and every page is gloriously sweet, from the art style and the characters, the story and the Tea Dragons themselves.

As usual, I won’t tag anyone but if you would like to give this tag a go feel free but let me know so I can check out your answers!
