Hey! 🙂 I was tagged by Bibliophile Gathering to do the Summertime Madness Tag! I love Stephanie and Taylor’s blog and this tag looks like a lot of fun! Shall I get started?
1: Show a book with a Summery Cover!
Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend
by Katie Finn
I love this book so much and it’s definitely a summery type of cover and read! Relaxing on the beach is always fun to do in the summer. This book is such a fun read and who wouldn’t want to stay in a beach house for the summer?
2: Pick one fictional place that would be the perfect destination for your Summer Vacation!
A Court of Thorns and Roses
by Sarah J. Maas
The Spring Court in Prythian. Throughout reading this book I wanted to just jump in so badly! The Spring Court sounds like such a great destination and place to just hangout, relax, and have fun. I also wouldn’t mind running into Lucien. 😉
3: You’re about to go on a flight to your Summer Vacation. But you want to read a book that lasts for the whole flight, so what novella do you choose?
by Lois Lowry
This isn’t really a Novella, but it’s such a quick read. I also love this book (and the entire series) so much and I wouldn’t mind reading it again on my flight. It’s definitely a book that can’t last a whole flight and that you could finish in a flight.
4: You have a case of Summertime Sadness. What happy book do you pick up to shine a smile on your face?
An Idiot Abroad: The Travel Diaries of Karl Pilkington
by Karl Pilkington
If you don’t know me, then you don’t know that I LOVED the show An Idiot Abroad, so I had to get Karl’s book about the destinations he traveled in that first season. It’s not exactly a happy book, but this book is SO hilarious and you will be laughing non-stop. I love Karl Pilkington so much and all of Karl’s mishaps and commentary is definitely going to give you a million laughs.
5: You’re sitting at the beach all alone…which fictional character would be your beach babe?
by Kiera Cass
Prince Maxon from The Selection series. He seriously deserved so much better than America. He would totally be my beach babe and he could definitely use a beach vacation!
6: To match your ice cream you want an icy cool sidekick! Which fictional sidekick do you pick?
The Glass Arrow
by Kristen Simmons
Aya is such a cool character and I think we would have a lot of fun if she was my sidekick. I’m sure we could get into a bunch of fun adventures together.
7: Share the Summertime Happiness! Who do you TAG?
Joey: thoughts and afterthoughts.
Zezee: Zezee with Books.
Shelbie: Lu-Lu’s Rants & Reads.
Maren: The Worn Bookmark.
This tag was kind of difficult, because I haven’t really read many “summery” type books. I know I have tons that I do want to read, I just haven’t ever gotten to them. I also didn’t want to use books that I always use for book tags, so that kind of made it a little more difficult too. I have a few other tags to do too, but I’ll save those for another day!
I have to break down and finally wipe my computer this week, because it’s not working much at all. I’m pretty angry with Dell, because I’ve only had this computer since February and it sucks! I feel like they sent me a defective computer. It hasn’t worked correctly since the day I got it. It’s to the point that I don’t ever really use it much.
I spent the day laying in the sun and in the pool (which is so rare for me – I hate sunburns and swimming) and I feel a little sunburned. I put tons of sunscreen on, but I still got a little sunburn. Ughhh. It was crazy hot today though.
I started Modern Romance today. I’m not that far into it yet though; only about 20 pages. I’m excited about it though. I also started a Netgalley book today too.
Anyway, I’m going to go read some until the boyfriend gets home from work. I’m also so tired and I am sure that is from being in the sun so much today! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Bye! ❤

This was such a fun post to read! I love it- it suits the current summer vibes!
I’m a fellow Karl Pilkington fan and somehow I missed the book memo?! So thanks to you, I’ll definitely be picking that up now.
He has quite a few books, but I haven’t been able to read the others yet! I’ve read samples of them and they all seem pretty great. Definitely can’t wait to read them all. 🙂
Holy crap, I feel so behind the times now!

Ok somehow I missed seeing this post when you posted it! I was looking for a fun tag to schedule for this weekend when I’ll be gone and saw this one. I’m totally doing this. Main reason I wanted to comment though was Karl Pilkington! I too LOVED An Idiot Abroad! Ethan and I laughed non-stop at this show. He is hilarious! I have to find this book!
Glad you ended up finding this post! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your answers. It was really fun to do. Karl Pilkington is the best. I have a shirt with him on it 😛 – he actually has quite a few books out and I am really excited to read them. I just have to get my hands on them!! I read samples of them from Amazon and they are so hilarious. Some are diary entries, poems, and pictures he drew. LOL!
I just ordered that one after seeing it on your post! I added the others to my wish list lol. 🙂
I was laughing so much while reading this when I was visiting with the boyfriend’s family that his mom downloaded the sample to see why I was laughing so much! 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!
