Bank Holiday Book Tag 2019

Yep, I'm doing my Bank Holiday Book Tag again! This time it's the 2019 version so let's see what's changed since last year.

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 ❤

Bank Holiday Book Tag 2019

So what is a typical bank holiday like?


Have a lie in. Which book could you lounge in bed with all morning?
I only recently read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë but oh my goodness I loved it. For the first time I was gripped by a classic and I couldn't put it down.

Oh my goodness, it's actually sunny outside! A book that makes you feel optimistic.
Meat Market by Juno Dawson is a difficult read but ultimately, just like Clean, it ended with a thread of hope which I loved.

Spend some time outdoors. A book that reminds you of nature.
In The Sharp Edge of a Snowflake by Sif Sigmarsdóttir the setting was almost a character in itself. While this might not seem like it would remind you of nature, I loved the power of the setting, how even the weather almost came alive.

Make some punch. A book that you find difficult to classify into one genre.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer is full of so much that I don't think I can just say it's a fantasy. There are so many layers to the story.

Pass some food around. A book you want to share with everyone.
The Year After You by Nina de Pass is absolutely amazing. It was the first book I read this year and it blew me away. I have so much love for the story and the characters and now I want to reread it again.

Light the BBQ. A book that took a while to get going.
The Beholder by Anna Bright. I felt like it took a bit longer than normal for this book to settle once it started, but once I was around a quarter of the way through I was in love and couldn't put it down.

Failed BBQ. A book that ultimately disappointed you.
Although I really enjoyed reading Forget My Name by JS Monroe, I was ultimately pretty disappointed by the ending. It just stopped, and I still had questions.

It's raining. Of course. A book to curl up with when it's raining outside.
The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie is perfect for cheering up a rainy day. It's an excellent story, truly lovely, and one I have already reread more than once.

Let's just eat the chocolate. A book that's super sweet.
Heartstopper Volume 1 by Alice Oseman. Seriously, this book is so sweet and reading it is like getting the best kind of hug.

Charlotte Somewhere
A Little But A Lot
