Guysssss!!! I am in a camping mood. This is my favorite time of year to camp and I’m ready for it. So when I found The Campfire Book Tag my soul rejoiced. This gives me all the camping vibes, so let’s not waste time. Keep reading for all the camping feels.
Build the Tent: A book you had to read that ended up being a drag
As a lover of spooky, scary things I’m ashamed to admit this, but my answer is Frankenstein. I had to read it in high school and I just did not click with this at all. And it’s not even because I had to read it in a class, because some of my favorites are from that same course. I just didn’t like it. I would like to read it now as a more mature reader to see if I could appreciate it a little more.
Build a fire: A book you were proud of finishing
I was proud to finish Fall of Giants. This book is a beast. I enjoyed every minute of it, but still it’s huge. Now I just need to finish the rest of the series.
Roasted Marshmallows: A Mushy sweet book you couldn’t help but devour
I had to think about this one a lot! I don’t read a lot of “sweet” books. But then I remembered The Tea Dragon Society. This is absolutely the sweetest book that I have ever read. It is sooo, sooo good. I want a Tea Dragon of my own.
Gone Fishing: A Book that had you hooked from the first chapter
The first thing that came to mind was The Eye of the World. Jordan’s writing style just caught my attention from the very beginning. He wrote such a rustic, woodsy world that I absolutely adore. I just didn’t want to leave it, which is good because it’s a fourteen book series. *sweats nervously*
Check out my review here.
Skipping Rocks: A book or series you DNF’d
This makes me sad because I wanted to love The Starless Sea. I just couldn’t get into it. I was lost the entire time and I don’t love that feeling. Did you read it? Should I give it another shot?
Campfire Songs: A book so good you are always found singing it’s praise
Skyward could easily be my favorite book of the year. I loved it and I can’t stop thinking about it. It was my first introduction to Brandon Sanderson’s writing, and I’ve been hooked ever since. This really started my Fantasy/Sci-fi binge read this year.
The night sky: A book that made you think deeply about an aspect of the world
Enchantment Lake really made me think about the environment, and the people trying to capitalize off of it. It made me realize that we can’t keep living like this if we want to have a healthy happy environment. Nature should be something that everyone benefits from, not make a profit from.
The Tear down: A book with a bitter-sweet ending
The ending to The Conference of the Birds was so bitter-sweet. So much about their world had changed. Friends were lost and loops were destroyed, but they did get a happy ending. I loved the closure this gave the series, but I cried tears of joy and sadness.
So that was The Campfire Book Tag. I really loved this tag. If you had fun let me know in the comments. And if you want to do the tag then I tag you! If you play along let me know. I’d love to read your answers.
