Hi everyone! Summer is coming and in anticipation of the hot summer days and tropical vacations to come, today I’m going to do the Deserted Island Book Tag. I saw this one is on Geraldine @ Coralling Books blog. This tag is pretty short, so let’s get started!
Water // A book you simply cannot live without
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. By this time you guys must’ve known that this is my favorite series. EVER. I’m glad I read this series, meet the amazing characters and I have no regrets getting my heart ripped out so many times because of this book.
Food // A book that is a close second on your favorites list
(obviously food is my favorite over water but whatever) Starcrossed series by Josephine Angelini. It’s basically about The Trojan War, which is one of my favorite Greek myth, so I’m really excited to read this and ended up really really enjoying it. It’s fast paced, have war, deaths, stabbing people, amazing powers, and of course, starcrossed romance! This series is a complete package.
Shelter // A book that makes you feel at home and safe
Percy Jackson series. I won’t say safe, because this book isn’t safe at all XD But the familiarity of the characters, the jokes, and greek myth in general makes me feel home.
Flare Gun // A book you would recommend to someone who doesn’t read
I think Sarah Dessen’s books are perfect for someone who doesn’t read. It’s light, not too cheesy, but it does speaks about family and friendship. Some of the stories are relatable to situations, so I’ll definitely going to recommend this book to someone who doesn’t read but love great romance. (If he/she doesn’t like romance then her books is not the one)
Matchsticks // A book that warms your heart
Sometimes contemporary and MG has way to make you go “awwww” to the story, so I have a lot of books from those categories. But the last one that warms my heart is All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. The ability of the characters to hope, their fight, and their presistence really make me want to wrap them in a blanket and put them somewhere safe where WW2 isn’t happening.
Compass // A book that directed you towards your love of reading
I think my love for reading started since I was a kid, with those bedtime stories for kids. But the first novel that I actually read, that makes me want to know more about all the other books in the world is Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix. I think it was okay, and it started my journey since after reading that I started to frequently visiting bookstores.
