Olympic Book Tag

I love the idea of book tags but often put off doing them because they’re kind of tedious to format. BUT then I saw Shannon had made a delightful Olympic-themed book tag and I decided to go ahead and dive in. You can check out Shannon’s answers on her post! (Graphics from Shannon too.)

Here’s the tag! (Click on the book covers to see my reviews.)

Girl Against the Universe by Paula StokesI read this one so recently I have even reviewed it yet. But the moment I picked it up, I know I would love this book. (Spoiler: I was totally right!)

The Darkest MindsThis series has a lot going on but all of it happens on a road trip as Ruby and the Black Betty gang making their way across the country.

Unspoken coverThis book was the first one that came to mind when I saw this heading and I stand by my initial choice. Truthfully almost any SRB book will have a good love triangle though!

The Last Place on Earth by Carol SnowI’ve been reading a lot of good books but then I remembered this one. Still. So. Many. Questions.

The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter HapgoodGoing for the obvious choice here with a book that has “summer” in the title.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare BlakeAnother recent read (watch for this one in September). This book was so intense with fighting and plotting and some bloodshed that I kept needing breaks while I was reading. I’d read a chapter and then need to just sit quietly for a minute to recover!

Six of Crows by Leigh BardugoThis book has so many plot twist that the sequel even had a decoy title for a while. *mic drop*

The Last Time We Were Us by Leah KonenThis book made me shed all the tears. Honorable mention for This Raging Light by Estelle Laure which made me shed all the other tears.

And I Darken by Kiersten WhiteSince this book spans the protagonist’s entire life, it starts a bit slow but moves along to great effect.

The View from Saturday coverI love this book so much. Even now it’s still a favorite I recommend to kids at the library all the time.

The Scorpion Rules by Erin BowGoats count as animals, right?!

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly BlackI had a really hard time getting through this book for reasons that are still not entirely clear. And yet I wound up loving it. Go figure!

Tumbling by Caela CarterI’ll be reviewing this soon but OMG I was blown away by how this book. I loved how the girls really built each other up and supported each other despite the strong competition.
