Book Tag | End of Summer Book Tag

Another Sunday, another book tag.

Since summer is officially over and fall is finally here, I thought this tag I saw the ever-lovely Melanie do would be perfect. I count summer as June, July, and August so those are the reading months I’ll be using to answer the prompts.

Favorite Book You’ve Read this Summer

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

Felix Ever After

This was the first in a string of 4 and 5 stars reads that made August feel like such an amazing reading month, and I’m going to attribute the streak to how much I loved this story. Felix is a treasure and I’m so happy to have read it.

Least Favorite Book You’ve Read this Summer

Sex and Vanity by Kevin Kwan

Sex and Vanity

I don’t think this is the worst book I’ve read this summer becaue I’ve DNF’d a few, but I think this was the most disappointing to me. I loved Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asian trilogy and I feel like this was a lot of the same but with no likeable characters, and a romance I couldn’t cheer for.

A Book You Wish You’d Read this Summer

10 Things I Hate About Pinky by Sandhya Menon

10 Things I Hate About Pinky (Dimple and Rishi, #3)

So I feel like this series keeps getting better and better, and following up my favorite There’s Something About Sweetie might be a tough challenge, but fake dating is a good start.

Favorite Classic You Read this Summer

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Vicious (Villains, #1)

I’m calling this a modern classic because it’s about the closest I’ll get to a classic (besides a retelling). BUt I think this is well deserved, because it’s such a well-loved book that I recommended to so many people (for good reason)

A Book You Read from a Different Genre

Our Time is Now by Stacey Abrams

Our Time Is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America

Now I’m not a nonfiction person on the best of days, but if I do pick one up it’s usually going to be some sort of true crime story but this politically focused piece by Stacey Abrams about voter rights and voter suppression was informative and engaging.

Favorite Adaption You Saw this Summer

Dare Me (USA Network)

Dare Me (TV Series 2019–2020) - IMDb

I actually saw this earlier in the year, but I don’t think I’ve seen any other adaptions since, but I loved this underrated, richly complex mystery series so much and was devastated that it was cancelled, but I do think season 1 stands on it’s own – as long as you don’t mind unresolved endings. But I think it would be the perfect show to binge this spooky season! But if you just want to give the show a taste, episode 5, Parallel Trenches is phenomenal (trigger warnings  for sexual assault)

Your Favorite New Release of the Summer

I’ll Be the One by Lyla Lee

I'll Be the One

This fun and bright K-Pop competition  inspired story was one of the first books I read that really put me in that happy summer mood that  I crave all season long.

What are some of your favorite books from this summer? What are you looking forward to reading in the fall? Share below!
