Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Weather book tag, which I found on Steph’s blog. Onto the post!
SUNSHINE: A book that made you smile
So many, but I think the Polar Bear Explorers Club books are a great example of this. They’re just do utterly lovely that I can’t not smile loads while reading them.
RAIN: A book you couldn’t put down
I recently read Another Twist in the Tale in pretty much one sitting! I hadn’t planned to, and it meant some uni work wasn’t done when I’d planned, but it just hooked me in with the writing style and I really wanted to see how it ended.
WIND: A book that blew you away
I think this has to be the Skylarks’ War. It really is just one of the most heartfelt, heartbreaking, heartwarming things I’ve ever read, and fittingly for the descriptors I’ve use, I love it with my whole heart.
HURRICANE: A tragic book
Ways to Live Forever is the most tragic thing I’ve ever read, bar none. I find a lot of books that tackle similar themes (the main character is terminally ill) unbearably mawkish and unrealistic, but I feel like Sam reminded me of people I’ve met in hospital wards and waiting rooms who were in similar positions.
BLIZZARD: A book you had high expectations for
I’m going to go for one that I expected to love but sadly didn’t, and that’s the Unhoneymooners. I’d heard amazing things about it being one of the best romance books ever and how it was perfect for people who enjoyed the Hating Game, but I just found it so bland and boring.
TORNADO: A book you didn’t like at first but ended up loving
I don’t want to give the same answer that I did for a similar question a few weeks ago, so I’m going to go for the Wild Folk Rising. I couldn’t really get into it the first time I tried it, but when I gave it another try this year I absolutely adored the ending to Comfrey and Tin’s story.
What’s your favourite type of weather? Do you have any thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? I’d love to hear in the comments!
