The Summer Reader Book Tag (w/ EmsBookCorner)

The Summer Reader Book Tag (w/ EmsBookCorner)

Hello everyone ! This is my first Tag  and I'm very excited about this especially because I have a very special guest to do it with me. Welcome to Em ! *clap clap clap*.

We've actually done two Tags. The Rip it Ship it Book Tag and this one. We've had so much fun doing them. It's for these moments that I started blogging, it was great ! You can also find her on Twitter, She's also a fantastic Bookstagramer so if you're into that, definitely check it out !

This tag has been created by IslandofBooks. Now let's move on to the questions.


1. Lemonade : Pick a book that started off bitter but got better


Em : The Hunger Games, I really didn't like the beginning of that book but as soon as I'd read a few chapters I fell in love with it.

Lys : I'm going to go with Stolen by Lucy Christopher. I almost DNFed it and I'm so glad I didn't. I felt so many things towards the end, and yes I cried.

2. Golden Sun: Pick a book that made you smile beyond compare


Em : Definitely Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella. In some places the book was quite funny and even made me laugh!

Lys : For me it's easy. Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie, this book is hilarious ! I couldn't even believe what I was reading

I don't remember laughing while reading it [Finding Audrey]. I think I smiled every time Felix was around but that's it ~

Em : Oh, I found the mum quite funny!

Lys : Oh yeah I forgot about the mom ! She scared me more than anything, everytime I tried to imagine being in Frank's shoes I got goosebumps.

Em : Yeah, I wouldn't want to be Frank !

Lys : Do you think we're computers addict ?

Em : Noo, do you?!

Lys I think you're in denial Em haha ! If someone broke my computer I think I could cry.

Em : Oh, that's true... Haha And my phone !

Lys : That's too horrible to imagine.



3. Tropical Flowers: Pick a book set in a foreign country


Em : The Book Thief! That book was set in Germany! (And it's my favourite book!)

Lys : I've heard so much about this book ! What's so great about it ?

Em : It's just so well written and so unique. It's also about the Second World War in Germany and about how it affected those living in Germany, which I hadn't read much about before so I found that interesting.

You really should read it, it's just so amazing! And very sad !

Lys : I'll give it a try then ! It's easy for me to choose a book (one of the perks of being French) I decided to go with Wonder by RJ. Palacia. I love this book ! Auggie, I'll never forget you.


4. Tree Shade: Pick a book in which a mysterious or shady character was first introduced


Lys : A Game of Thrones by Georges RR Martin has a very shady beginning.

Em : Ooh that's a difficult one. I guess The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman might work ? The beginning is very peculiar and mysterious.


5. Beach Sand: Pick a book that was grainy, and the plot barely developed


Lys : The Crown's game. As soon as I saw it on my shelf I knew It'd be perfect for this question.

(Review of The Crown's Game)

Em : Girl Online on Tour, I don't think this book really developed much and the plot wasn't as good as the first book.


6. Green Grass: Pick a character(s) that were full of life, making you smile


Lys : Sage from the Ascendance Trilogy. One of my favourite male character ever ! And the serie is amazing.

Em : Stargirl Caraway from Stargirl. She is great and just loves life.


7. Watermelon: pick a book that had some juicy secrets


Lys : This is a good one  ! Unravel by Calia Read. It has everything I wanted : Mystery, tension, intensity. It blew my mind. (My thoughts on Unravel)

Em : Ooh, I don't know! Maybe The Memory Garden by Rachel Hore ? That book has a few interesting secrets !


7. Sun Hat: pick a book that had a vast, big universe/setting


Lys : I can't choose A Game of Thrones again so I'll pick A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Em : I haven't read many fantasy books, so this is difficult... I guess The Hunger Games series has a large setting and it takes a little while to understand all of the districts.

Lys : I'm going to force you to read a lot of fantasy series this summer !

Em : Hahaha! I have so many books to read though ! I feel like fantasy books are a Winter thing as well. You can make me read some fantasy books in the winter haha.

Lys : I see what you mean I feel like summer is for contemporaries.

Em : Yeah, definitely !


8. BBQ: pick a book in which a character was portrayed as a hunk


Lys : I can literally use every contemporary or NA book for this one.

Em : I'm going to have to say the Divergent series, I love Four...


Lys : I watched the movie before reading the book and when I saw the actor for the first time, my heart stopped beating for 2 seconds. (Yep just like that).




I choose Dimitri Belikov. I miss him.

Thanks so much for the tag!

I love Sage from the Ascendence trilogy (I've only read book one so far but it was just amazing! and I need to read the rest desperately).

Lys 11/08/2016 10:45

The first sentence of the second book hooked me immediately. The rest of the serie is sooo good !

Lauren @ Always Me 10/08/2016 17:00

Thanks for tagging me, guys! This looks like so much fun. I'm so glad to see Sage get some attention - such a great character!

Lauren @ Always Me 24/09/2016 01:15

Here's my post.

Lys 10/08/2016 17:03

You're welcome ^^ and yeah it was ! Oh my god I've finally found someone who knows Sage. I felt like I was the only one, he's an amazing character. He has everything I look for in a hero. This book is way underhyped !

Jess 10/08/2016 13:26

Oooooh my first tag! This is exciting. :) I also recommend the book thief, its a beautiful book and funny in moments too -- you'll need to see the movie also, it was a really nice version. I cried a lot!

Can't wait to take part in the tag :)

Lys 10/08/2016 17:01

I'm curious to see your answers for this ! Well, I really need to read it then. To be honest, I have a bad feeling about this book but I'm going to give it a try. I need to step out of my comfort zone ~ And if you cried it means I'll probably cry too. I need to prepare my heart haha.
