Happy Fourth of July to all of my American followers! Since today is Independence Day, I thought I would celebrate by completing the Independent Day Book Tag. Here are my answers (I am not sure who started this tag. If you know, please link to their social media down below so I can credit them!):
- Show three books you have already read (one red, one white, and one blue)
This summer I have been really drawn to reading more middle grade books. These are three books that I have read so far this summer. While I wanted more from Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, I was thoroughly impressed with the unique and distinct voices in each of these stories. Real Friends, a graphic memoir about Shannon Hale’s childhood, really grabbed me because it perfectly captured how most people feel at that age.
- A book with your favorite “rag-tag” band of revolutionaries
I haven’t talked about The Lunar Chronicles in so long! This was one of my most hyped series when I first started my blog. I love each of the characters in this book and they have stayed with me years after I finished the series. I’m still waiting on someone to make this into a movie series, or even better, a television or Netflix series!
- Show a book that takes place in one of the 13 original colonies
The Unexpected Everything takes place in Stanwich, Connecticut, one of the 13 original colonies. I am a huge fan of Morgan Matson’s books and hopefully I can get to the only book that I haven’t read by her, Second Chance Summer, before this summer ends!
- Show a book that takes place in England
Sophie Kinsella’s books are some of the first books that got me into the “adult” book age range. I particularly loved I’ve Got Your Number out of all the books that I have read by her.
- Time for fireworks! What book(s) end with a bang?
The Cruel Prince was an okay read for me, but I was completely blown away by the twists and turns in the second book in this series. The ending caught me by surprise! I am eagerly anticipating The Queen of Nothing.
- Show three books you would like to read (one red, one white, and one blue)
I really enjoyed The Proposal, so I was love to read the other books in Jasmine Guillory’s companion series. I also want to read books by Maurene Goo because I’ve heard such positive reviews of her work. Obviously, I need to read The Rest of the Story because Sarah Dessen is my favorite YA author!
