The Summer Reading Tag!
I recently saw Jen Campbell on YouTube do this tag, and since it is not one of my posting days for videos, I thought I would answer these seven questions for you today on the blog! I am going to have a video up this weekend, though I am not sure what yet... Without further gabbing lets get to the questions!
- What three books do you want to read this summer?
- I would love to read:
- Jerusalem by: Alan Moore
- Ghost Talkers by: Mary Robinnette Kowal
- This Census Taker by: China Meiville
- Which character most embodies the traits of summer?
- Kizzy from The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by: Becky Chambers
- She is so much fun to be around and read about on the ship, and she has the brightest and most bubbly personality of any character I have read. Kizzy = Summer!
- What book do you most associate with the physicality of summer?
- I do not really do this with any particular book, however I associate colors and cover designs with summer and the other seasons. Colors such as Orange, Red, Yellow etc...
- What kind of books do you like to read on Holiday?
- In my family we do not go on holiday trips or anything, so there are not any books I would remember reading on holiday, however during the summer break I read a ton of large books that I cannot read during the school year.
- If you could go on holiday with any author, where would you go?
- I would go on holiday with John Scalzi, because he always has some witty and slightly irritating comment to make that would make the holiday so much better! I would like to stay in the USA and just go to a comic con with him and hear his banter about the whole experience!
- What is your book of the year so far?
- This is a very tricky tricky question for me to answer because I have read so many amazing books! I would have to say a three way tie right now between: \
- Swamplandia by: Karen Russel
- We Were the Mulvaneys by: Joyce Carol Oates
- The long Way To a Small Angry Planet by: Becky Chambers
- These are all amazing books for their own reasons, you should check out my revies of each of them right here on the blog and then pick them up!
- How did you spend your summer holidays as a child?
- I spent my summer holidays at some sort of Boy Scout camp or even just a summer swim program, so I was always busy. Now I just work and enjoy writing for the blog and reading awesome books!
Those were my answers for the Summer Reading Tag which I found through Jen Campbell's Video
