Callum tagged me in this book tag and, though it’s taken a week to get to the questions, I never could resist talking about books so – thanks, Callum 🙂
Show a book with a summery cover.
I haven’t read the book in years, but I enjoyed it. It was a gripping read, and I remember being relieved Richard got off the island! Not exactly a light summer read, but a great cover for the subject matter!
Pick one fictional place that would be the perfect destination for a summer vacation!
Narnia – I’d only have to go through my wardrobe to get there, too. How cool is that!
You’re about to go on a flight to your summer vacation. But you want to read a book that lasts for the whole flight, what novella do you choose?
I’d take Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles 3.5) by Marissa Meyer. I’m curious about the evil queen, Levana, and this novella is a bridge between Cress (which I just read) and Winter, the next in the Lunar Chronicles series. I love the spin Marissa put on the classic tales.
You have a case of summertime sadness what happy book do you pick up to shine a smile on your face?
It would probably be a children’s book, one I could share with my nephew and get a sneaky cuddle while I’m at it! He’s a little young yet, but I keep trying him with Dr Seuss. My youngest daughter was partial to Horton Hears A Who! so that book has fun memories, and never fails to bring a smile to my face.
You’re sitting at the beach all alone…which fictional character would be your beach babe?
I’ll go with the first thought that popped into my head – Arthur Curry – Aquaman. I never sit on a beach for very long, I prefer to go exploring. Perhaps I could persuade Aquaman to take me to Atlantis, in fact, now that I think about it, I’ll change my answer to the second question and go to Atlantis instead!
To match your ice cream you want an icy cool sidekick! Which fictional side kick do you pick?
I think, given my previous answer I already have one! Though, let’s be honest – I’d be the side-kick in that scenario!
Share the Summertime Happiness! Who do you TAG?
I’ll tag Taylor Grace, and anyone else who would like to take part. If you have the time, it’s a lot of fun.
Thanks for stopping by

I’m glad you found the time to take part 🙂 I haven’t read any of The Lunar Chronicles yet but the series has been on my radar for a while.
It’s fab 😀
[…] we’ve had a lovely summer even if it only lasts two months here. Plus, I got tagged by Melissa Barker-Simpson for this lovely Summertime Book Tag and I can’t wait to share in. (thank you for thinking of […]
I always pack a full novel for a flight, but that’s because I’m used to 10+ hours on a plane at any given time, haha. I’m loving ‘Dear OPL’ right now, by Shelley Sackier. I haven’t read MG fiction in a long, long time, but it’s very enjoyable.
Ooh, I must check that one out. Thanks for the recommendation 😀 And that’s a good point. Always carry a novel with you, that’s my motto!
I often struggle over which book(s) to bring on a trip. What if I pick one I don’t like, don’t want to finish? Now, with my iPad, I treat myself to 4-5 Kindle books and don’t worry about picking the right book.
Sounds like a good plan to me! 🙂 I like my kindle too, and as long as I have that and a good paperback with me, I’m happy.
I keep hearing such good things abotu the Lunar Chronicles. Have to take the jump and just start reading, I suppose 😉
Lol! I’m sure you’ll really enjoy it 😀
Fun interview! Atlantis would be a great summer vacation destination. Especially because since it’s underwater, no chance of sunburn! I’m allergic to the sun anyway — a ridiculous allergy if ever there was one — so sitting on a beach never appeals much 😉
I know exactly what you mean, and I’m glad I’m not the only one who avoids sitting on the beach 😉
