If it is not already obvious, I adore book tags, especially when they are themed like this one! My happy place is the beach so I was excited when The Left Handed Book Lover, who created this tag, tagged me to do the Life’s a Beach Book Tag!
1) THE SAND
A BOOK THAT STUCK WITH YOU LONG AFTER YOU FINISHED READING
The Wonder is one of the most atmospheric books that I have ever read. It is a story that completely captivated me and I still think about over a year and a half later. My mind was reeling the entire time and I just had to know what was happening in this bizarre story! I don’t want to say too much because it is best to go in to it completely blind and I really think you should read it.
2) THE SUN
A BOOK THAT BURNED YOU
I was so excited to read The Girls, and was completely let down by it! It had all the makings to be an interesting story but it never reached it’s full potential. The writing was excellent, but Emma Cline somehow managed to make a story about a cult really really boring!
3) THE WAVES
A BOOK THAT CALMS YOU DOWN AFTER A LONG DAY
The Five People You Meet in Heaven is a short book but it is really inspiring. It is a book that I will pick up when I find myself falling in to a reading slump, or when I need something that I know is uplifting. I can not wait for the sequel, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven, to come out later this year!
4) THE BATHING SUIT
A BOOK WITH A PRETTY, SUMMER-Y COVER
I mean, I do not have to say too much about this one because the cover speaks for itself! So summery!
5) THE BIRDS
A BOOK THAT IS EVERYWHERE
I feel like everyone is talking about Circe, and for good reason! This book was fantastic and I will read anything that Madeline Miller writes from now on. It is one of the few books that I am confident in recommending to pretty much anyone!
6) THE COMPANY
A BOOK WITH WONDERFUL CHARACTERS
A Man Called Ove will always be my answer to questions like this one! Ove is probably my favourite character ever. He is grumpy but unbelievably charming, and I completely fell in love with him.
I just finished Six of Crows, and I totally understand why everyone loves it so much! It is the characters that truly make this story so great. I know a lot of people are big fans of Kaz, but it is Inej and Jesper who I really became invested in! I love that we get the perspective of all of these amazing characters and we learn some of their back stories. Can’t wait to read Crooked Kingdom!
7) THE ICE-COLD DRINKS
A BOOK YOU ABSOLUTELY GULPED DOWN
The Names They Gave Us was a book that I just could not put down! I loved the setting, the diverse characters, the plot, and pretty much everything about this book. It is a story that completely sucks you in and I became entirely invested in this one!
8) THE FUN MEMORIES
A BOOK YOU CAN’T WAIT TO RETURN TO
The movie for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is being released on Netflix on August 17th, 2018, and I am hoping to reread it before then! It is such a sweet and charming book and I want to refresh myself on all of the details before I watch the movie!

This is such a cool tag!
I think so too!
I adore Ove too! 💗
He’s the best!
I really enjoyed The Wonder, too! That story took such a turn that I wasn’t expecting and definitely makes you think. Great tag!
I am so happy you enjoyed it as well! There is something so special about it!
There really is!
This is such a cute tag 🙂 and I love all the books you chose!
This was such a wonderful tag! I’m so glad you enjoyed Six of Crows, Inej is my favourite character of them all, but I really do love all 6 of them!! XD
I love Inej! I love all the characters as well!
Completely agree! There are so many amazing characters in the Six of Crows, my favorites are Inej and Kaz!
I was so surprised by how much I liked every character!
Great post! Loved your answers!!
I thought The Girls was boring too lol. Great post!
Such a disappointment! Thank you!
This is a lovely summery tag! I have read Room by Emma Donoghue but I’d never heard of Wonder so will definitely need to take a look. The Five People You Meet in Heaven and Circe are also books on my list that I’m so looking forward to reading soon! 🙂
It really is a great tag! I love Emma Donoghue’s writing. I think you will really like The Wonder, Five People, and Circe!
You’re right, Emma Donoghue does have a really special, unique writing style. I’m very much looking forward to reading The Wonder!
I love this tag! I really need to get on reading Circe–everyone is raving about it! Really enjoyed this post, thanks!
Thank you!! You really need to read Circe! I am always worried books are over hyped but I don’t think it is!
Yes, that’s always my worry! I’ll get on it. Thanks! 🙂
Love this tag! I totally agree about Six of Crows, the characters are so complex and dynamic that they made the story brilliant
Thank you! I was blown away by how great the characters were!
Awesome tag! I definitely agree with your answers of Circe and Six of Crows!
Thank you! Both great books!
What a fun tag and I love your choices! I may do this one myself!
Thank you! I thought it was a fun tag!
Love your choices. I really liked the Wonder too – I saw lots of reviews saying it wasn’t great, especially compared to Room, but I thought it was really good.
Thank you! I think I enjoyed it more than Room, but they are completely different. I could see why people who loved Room would be surprised by how different The Wonder is!
I’m so glad you participated in the tag! 🙂 The Unlikelies cover definitely screams summer!! I re-read the To All the Boys series at the beginning of the year and it was so sweet and wonderful the second time. I can’t wait for the movie. My friends and I are planning a girls night screening haha!
I love The Unlikelies cover! I am so glad that To All the Boys is just as good the second time! I love the idea of having a girls night. I might have to try to arrange one myself!
I loved this tag, it’s so summery! I think I might do it too, I’m definitely feeling the summer 🌞🤗🤗
Yay! Can’t wait to read your answers!
