Hey everyone, so on top of doing a Top Ten Tuesday each week, I’m also going to start doing a tag each Tuesday. I’ve been getting tagged in things quite a bit recently and really need to start nipping them in the bum. So, what better way than to do one each Tuesday! Tag Tuesday – It just has a nice ring to it. If you haven’t seen my Top Ten Tuesday yet, just click here when you’re done reading this post and you’ll be redirected.
So, here goes another tag. Summer @xingsings was nice enough to tag me in this one. Although this was a more recent tag, and I do have older tags to get to, I am choosing to do this one, since summer, the season (:P), is almost over already. So, here goes. I’ve chosen to take photos of actual books that I own for this tag, becuase it’s been awhile since I’ve explored my bookshelves and am excited to show off some covers I love!
1. SHOW A BOOK WITH A SUMMERY COVER! I.E. SUN, BEACH, ECT.
I haven’t read this book yet, but it definitely has a beach-y cover. Have any of you read this one? It has been on my TBR for forever and Half Price Books had it on sale for $2 a few months ago, so obviously I had to buy it. I’m actually really excited to get to this one!
2. PICK ON FICTIONAL PLACE THAT WOULD BE THE PERFECT DESTINATION FOR YOUR SUMMER VACATION!
Okay, honestly, Wonderland would always be a good destination. But there’s just something about summer and daydreaming of far off places and grand adventures. Please take me to Wonderland like ASAP. And don’t be surprised if I stay and live with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare.
3. YOU’RE ABOUT TO GO ON A FLIGHT TO YOU SUMMER VACATION, BUT YOU WANT TO READ A BOOK THAT LASTS FOR THE WHOLE FLIGHT. WHAT NOVEL DO YOU CHOOSE?
Honestly, when I went on vacation just a few weeks ago to Germany, Italy, and Switzerland, I came so close to taking this book for a re-read. I absolutely loved this novel by Leo Tolstoy. It’s a good length to last all vacation, including long plane rides. However, I opted for To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee this last time. Maybe next year Anna.
4. YOU HAVE A CASE OF SUMMERTIME SADNESS. WHAT HAPPY BOOK DO YOU PICK UP TO SHINE A SMILE ON YOUR FACE?
Always a good choice. One of my favorite books and definitely my favorite movie. Buttercup, Westley, and all the other unique characters never fail to make me smile. I should really read this book again in the near future!
5. YOU’RE SITTING AT THE BEACH ALL ALONE…WHICH FICTIONAL CHARACTER WOULD BE YOUR BEACH BABE?
Make fun of me all you want, but I would totally pick Ron Weasley. He was basically my first book crush and I will never get over him, okay. Okay. He’s a bumbling idiot and completely insensitive sometimes, but overall I love his character and would choose him over any other HP boy any day. Also, I have a thing for gingers. So sue me.
6. TO MATCH YOUR ICE CREAM YOU WANT AN ICY COOL SIDEKICK! WHICH FICTIONAL SIDEKICK DO YOU PICK?
I would pick Jo March from Little Women. She is the most adorable little tomboy that I know and would be up for any type of summertime adventure. She’d be an icy cool summer sidekick to top all icy cool summer sidekicks.
7. SHARE THE SUMMERTIME HAPPINESS. WHO DO YOU TAG?
I also tag anyone who finds this post interesting and wants to do it! I am 100% okay with and completely encourage you to say you were tagged by me. This was fun, and I loved rediscovering some favorite books on my bookshelf. I will be back next Tuesday with another tag.
