Summer Bucket List Book Tag

Yes I know for us here in the Northern Hemisphere it is Autumn but who doesn’t love a summery book tag to help recall those lazy hazy days of Summer. I was tagged by the fabulous Nen and Jen to do this tag so let’s get to it!

The Rules

  • Link back to the creator Tiffany’s original blog post.
  • Feel free to use any of Tiffany’s gorgeous graphics in your post, or create your own.
  • Tag 5 other people at the end of your post and let them know you’ve tagged them.

The Tag

The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill

This is a YA feminist retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid so it’s definitely got some watery vibes!

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

I loved the enemies to lovers romance in this book! Definitely a great example of one of my all time favourite tropes.

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

I just love John Green’s novels so much (except for Papertowns lol) and this one was super fun to read.

Constellation Myths by Eratosthenes

I’ve loved star gazing since I was a little girl and this ancient book that tells the stories of the myths that our ancestors gave to the constellations was a really fascinating read.

One Day by David Nicholls

Gosh I loved this book so much. It was certainly a book that I was at pains to ever have to put down while I was reading it as I was so engrossed in the story of Emma and Dexter.

Night Owls by Jenn Bennett

This book was just beyond cute. I mean I think I actually squealed with happiness while reading it.FYI, it’s known as The Anatomical Shape of a Heart in some places.

Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer

This book rescued me from the depths of a reading slump about three summers ago. It was smart, cute, funny but above all, a lot of easy breezy fun!

How Do You Like Me Now by Holly Bourne

I think the main character in this conquered some personal demons and some of the societal expectations of a woman in her thirties.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

I just remember this book having the most mouth watering descriptions of food ever… sadly that was one of the only things I really liked about it lol!

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This book is simply a must read and really explains the need for feminism in modern society. It also is a book that takes back ownership of the word feminism from anyone who thinks that is in some way anti-male.


And that’s it for this tag! What do you guys think of my picks? Let me know in the comments below. Also, I’m not going to tag anyone in particular because it isn’t summer anymore but feel free to do this tag if you want.

  1. I’m glad you did the tag… even if it is Autumn over there for you! I’ve had One Day on my shelf for years but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I avoided it because of the movie… I tend to wait for the hype to die down a bit. Night Owls looks great too! I’ll check it out 😊 Jen

  2. What a varied list – I love that you read so many different genres! I belong to a feminist book club so We Should All Be Feminists will be a great book to suggest. I’m also a big fan of mythology and I hadn’t heard of the Constellation Myths book, so thank you for sharing that one! They’ve both been added to my Goodreads list 😊

  3. Aaaah I loved An Abundance of Katherines! It’s one of the few John Green books I love!

    I loooove mythology and I’m getting more into astrology, so I’ll have to read Constellation Myths.

    I have such a weird relationship with One Day! I didn’t really like it…but I’m fascinated by the plot and structure. Basically, I feel the same way about One Day that I do about The Time-Traveler’s Wife.
