How are you today? Excited for the weekend? Anyway, back in April I did the I Love Spring Book Tag (which I also did last year too, HERE) and in both of those posts I said I would adapt the tag and do the same for the other seasons, so as promised here is my I Love Summer Book Tag 2019:
Enough dillydallying; let’s get cracking.
HOW IS SUMMER WHERE YOU LIVE?
If we have a summer anything like last year, (which was very unusual for us) we could be up in the high 20’s (or 80’s in Fahrenheit) it was very hot and I still didn’t get a tan 😦
I know that’s not by a lot of countries standards but when the average daily temperature is 6 degrees (or 42 in Fahrenheit) it is most definitely H.O.T
MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK RELEASE THIS SUMMER?
I am super hyped for Technically, You Started It by Lana Wood Johnson. It releases on June 25th 2019 and my birthday is the 30th, so this is something I have asked my parents for. It sounds like my perfect kind of read so I hope it lives up to everything I hope!
When a guy named Martin Nathaniel Munroe II texts you, it should be obvious who you’re talking to. Except there’s two of them (it’s a long story), and Haley thinks she’s talking to the one she doesn’t hate. A question about a class project rapidly evolves into an all-consuming conversation. Haley finds that Martin is actually willing to listen to her weird facts and unusual obsessions, and Martin feels like Haley is the first person to really see who he is. Haley and Martin might be too awkward to hang out in real life, but over text, they’re becoming addicted to each other.
There’s just one problem: Haley doesn’t know who Martin is. And Martin doesn’t know that Haley doesn’t know. But they better figure it out fast before their meet-cute becomes an epic meet-disaster . . .
I know this only asked for one, but this is a close second for most anticipated so I thought I would throw it in. Virtually Yours by Sarvenaz Tash is coming out today (when I am righting this, aka the 4th of June) so when this post goes up it will be out – and you know I for sure will be reading it!
How bad can one little virtual lie be? NYU freshman Mariam Vakilian hasn’t dated anyone in five months, not since her high school sweetheart Caleb broke up with her. So, when she decides to take advantage of an expiring coupon and try out a new virtual reality dating service, it’s sort of a big deal. It’s an even bigger deal when it chooses as one of her three matches none other than Caleb himself. That has to be a sign, right? Except that her other match, Jeremy, just happens to be her new best friend IRL. Mariam’s heart is telling her one thing, but the app is telling her another. So, which should she trust? Is all fair in modern love?
WHAT BOOK COVER MAKES YOU THINK OF SUMMER?
On the Fence by Kasie West instantly comes to mind. The orange hues make me think of sunsets during summer, humid and beautiful. I gave this 4 stars when read and REVIEWED this back in January. It is a perfect stand-alone romance to get you in the mood for the summer.
For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows—including her longtime neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn’t know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and BeDazzlers. Even stranger, she’s spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.
To cope with the stress of faking her way through this new reality, Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with Braden by the fence that separates them. But their Fence Chats can’t solve Charlie’s biggest problem: she’s falling for Braden. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO READ THIS SUMMER?
This answer probably won’t change no matter which season I am answering for because as much as I love outside, I will probably be reading in bed as per usual. I love reading in bed. It calms me and focus’s me. Also, I read aloud to make sure I take in every word and immerse myself more, so reading outside of the privacy of my room is a little odd for people who hear me.
FIND A COVER WITH THE BEACH ON IT!
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. The most famous cover for this is a mainly white background with two people on bikes. However the cover I have for this is of a girl riding along a beach and I think it is vastly more pretty. I plan on reading this pretty soon too because I have been loving the stand-alone romances recently.
It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live. A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER READS?
These are two books are both incredible and I adore them and nothing gets me in the summer mood more than these do! I have a post dedicated to the two of them HERE!
Alex Approximately by Jenn Bennett I read two years ago now and it was one of the first books I reviewed on my blog, it was a definite push into starting up the blog because I just needed to rant about my adoration for this book!
Long story short, read them both. They are brilliant!
FAVOURITE BOOK THAT IS SET IN SUMMER?
This is slightly obvious but Summer Days and Summer Nights by Stephanie Perkins. I meant to read this last year but didn’t get around it it and I hope I can this year because it is a collection of cute romances all set during summer, what more could you ask for?!
Just like always I tag anyone who is interested because this is nice and simple and cute and yeah – kind of fun.
I hope you enjoyed this new tag. I love doing tags and I feel like I haven’t done one in ages when it was probably only like a week ago hehe. Anyway, See you on Sunday for a book review ❤
