I don’t know why, but today I just felt like writing about something book related–I just didn’t know what. That’s when I saw some of the summer book tags on WordPress Reader–and I really loved some of the prompts. But instead of doing a book tag that’s already been created, I decided to make my own: The Fun in the Sun Book Tag.
I find these types of posts super interesting to read, so I’m excited to share another one of my own. To check out my first book tag, you can click HERE. Otherwise, let’s get started!

- Nominate some of your blogger friends.
- Have fun!
1. Ice Cream: A Sweet Book
Although I haven’t read this one in a while–probably about 2 years–I remember really enjoying it. This short, lower middle grade novel is about a girl named Taylor who has recently moved to Roxbury Park. She decides to join a local Dog Club, which begins to face competition with a luxury dog groomer right across town. Meanwhile, she faces the struggles of being the “new girl” as she experiences bullying at school. Overall the plot is really simple and straight to the point. But the adorable dogs and long-lasting friendships make for a really short and sweet read.
2. Hydrangea: A Book with lots of Character Development
An intriguing trait of the Smile series is that it is based on the teenage years of the author, Raina Telgemeier. I think that automatically adds a lot of originality to this graphic novel. After she gets braces due to a sudden trip, she struggles with learning to love herself, becoming comfortable in her own skin, and identifying who her real friends are. In the end, she develops to be more confident in herself, and smile bigger than ever before. This is definitely a book that I would recommend for all tweens and teens; it’s one of my favorites to this day.
3. Starfish: A Book with a Unique Concept
Twintuition is a series authored by actress twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry about twin sisters–Cassie and Caitlyn. As the two city girls–who’ve lost their closeness over the years–move to a small town in the large state of Texas, they soon discover their newfound power to see the future when they touch another person. This is a really cute read that has diverse representations with a unique concept and a sweet delivery of the theme of sisterhood.
4. Airplane: A Book that Started off Slow but Rose Beyond Your Expectations
Recently, I wrote a book review of Witchlings, one of the newest additions to my bookshelf. After the initial introduction of the main characters, the plot seemed to lack in action for a little while. However, once the gears finally started spinning, and the pieces of the puzzle began to connect, this has easily become one of my favorite fantasy novels.
5. Blazing Sun: A Book that Takes Place in the Summer
Soon after I finished reading the first addition to this series, All Four Stars, I knew that I had to get the sequel. Although I’ve just began to continue reading The Stars of Summer after a long break, I’m loving it so far. Considering that it takes place on a summer camp, with the 12-year-old protagonist (Gladys) being a food critic for the New York Standard newspaper on a mission to find the most delicious hotdog in New York, I feel as though it’s the perfect story for the summer.
6. Roller Coaster: A Book that Gave You the Giggles
DOAWK is one of my favorite series from my early childhood, mainly because the author Jeff Kinney never holds back with all of the humor. In this book, Greg learns what it’s like not to have electronics (like in the olden days), when he goes to Hardscrabble Farms for a week, where everything is old-fashioned. Although this book doesn’t take place in the summer, it gives me summer camp vibes. Plus, it’s a great option if you want to read something that’ll keep you laughing.
7. Sandcastle: A Book that Feels like a Fairytale
Grimmtastic Girls is a series set in Grimmlandia, the residence of a large scale of modernized fairy tale characters, including Cinderella (who prefers to go by Cinda), Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Rapunzel, Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Goldilocks, etc. While this is a book that I read years ago–therefore I recommend it for elementary schoolers–it was still a fairy tale with many modern twists that I really enjoyed.
I hope you all liked this Book Tag just as much as I did. But to be fair, any post relating to books is one of my favorites.
