The Booklympics Tag

Hello everybody! Today, I’m pinching a tag I saw on my lovely friend Ross’s blog, and as quite a happy coincidence, the Paralympics are still ongoing so I don’t feel super late getting to this tag. Onto the post!


DIVING: a book that throws you in at the deep end

I don’t have a specific book nnecessarily but anything with science does this to me. I legit find it so confusing!!

SPRINT: a book you read in one or two sittings

Every Line of You is the most recent one!

LONG DISTANCE RUNNING: a book that took a long time to read

I’m generally a bit of a speed reader, so there aren’t many options for this. I took about a week to read Frostheart because I was really busy at uni and struggling with day to day life when I picked it up, and it just tainted what would otherwise have been a perfectly good book.

SKATEBOARDING: a book you’ve just added to your shelves

I think my most recent addition is Emmy Levels Up, which my copy of arrived on the day I’m writing this. And the day before that Eight Perfect Hours arrived!

DECATHLON: a book with many different facets

I thought about this for a while because so many books I love could fit, but I think I’m going to go for This Can Never Not Be Real. It’s so layered and complex and explores really dark themes, but is also funny and romantic and hopeful in places. Highly, highly recommend it, but major trigger warnings for trauma and parental bereavement.

FOOTBALL: a less famous book by a famous author

Ooooh I love this question. It’s so hard though!! Maybe In Case You Missed It by Lindsey Kelk? She’s pretty famous for the I Heart series but I never hear anyone talking about her last release, which is a shame as I loved it.

RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS: a book with poetic prose

October October was the first thing that sprung to mind! It’s an absolutely gorgeous read.

HURDLES: a book you struggled with but got there in the end

I almost always say Evernight for this sort of question, but it started out like a 3.5 star read and ended up a 4.5!! So it’s a very good example of it.


Thank you so much for reading! What’s your favourite Olympic sport to watch? Do you have any thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? I’d love to hear in the comments!
