Bank Holiday Book Tag

I thought I'd have some fun this super long bank holiday weekend and do a book tag. Feel free to grab it if you're not tagged, just link back to Tea Party Princess. Huge thanks to Aoife at Pretty Purple Polka Dots who helped me iron out the kinks ❤

So what is a typical bank holiday like? Read on.

Have a lie in. Which book could you lounge in bed with all morning?
Following Ophelia by Sophia Bennett is so decadent and filled with lush descriptions that I could definitely lounge about all morning reading it.

Oh my goodness, it's actually sunny outside! A book that makes you feel optimistic.
This Beats Perfect by Rebecca Denton. It just feels so uplifting, especially with Amelie's contagious passion.

Spend some time outdoors. A book that reminds you of nature.
Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young has a big focus on the nature that surrounds the characters and it's so vividly described that I was there and I picture the turning season perfectly.

Make some punch. A book that you find difficult to classify into one genre.
Waiting for Callback by Perdita and Honor Cargill is so much more than just a funny contemporary YA. It easily holds a piece of my heart but I have it on about ten different shelves on Goodreads.

Pass some food around. A book you want to share with everyone.
Pirates by Celia Rees, because it's kick-ass girl power pirates that isn't afraid of the grim reality of piratical life.

Light the BBQ. A book that took a while to get going.
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C Dao did take a wee while to get going, but once I was about 15% in I was hooked and no way was I putting it down.

Failed BBQ. A book that ultimately disappointed you.
To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. I was expecting so much, but the vague and confusing descriptions really let me down.

It's raining. Of course. A book to curl up with when it's raining outside.
Clean by Juno Dawson. It's just... Wow. WOW. Perfect for curling up with and seeing the world through someone else's eyes.

Let's just eat the chocolate. A book that's super sweet.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli is just so freaking sweet at heart. It fills me with warm fuzzies.

  3. Aw so many reads I love the sound of and such a cute tag! I would love to give Following Ophelia a read, I love reading lush descriptions, Helen Dunmore is one of my favourite authors because the way she describes things is like nothing I've come across before :D I just soak it all up like a sponge haha! xx
