The Campfire Book Tag

The Campfire Book Tag

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.

Also, this tag was created by Jaded Reader and I found it on A Book Owls Corner. Check them out. They have great content.

Build the Tent: A book you had to read that ended up being a drag

Frankenstein|Mary Shelley

The Campfire Book Tag

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

Fall of Giants|Ken Follett

The Campfire Book Tag

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

The Tea Dragon Society|K. O'Neill

The Campfire Book Tag

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 Eye of the World|Robert Jordan

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

Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

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|Brandon Sanderson

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|Margi Preus

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

Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series; Ransom Riggs; Conference of the Birds

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. books, toys, tech, & more.

One thought on “The Campfire Book Tag

  1. Oooh, it’s so cool that you did this! I love your bookish campfire picture, it’s immediately putting me in the mood to pack up everything, find a nice secluded spot in the woods, start a fire, and start singing campfire songs… πŸ•πŸ˜
    I love Frankenstein, though!! The monster!! It’s so poor and misunderstood πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜ͺ However, I do think it’s not really a horror story. I’d actually characterize it as philosophical instead.
    And if you didn’t like the beginning of The Starless Sea, I think you probably wouldn’t enjoy the rest that much, either. The whole book is beautifully atmospheric and lyrical, but it is very uniform in style. I actually love the first three quarters, but hate the ending πŸ˜… So maybe for you it might be the other way around?
    And I did really like the beginning of Wheel of Time, but thought it got rather repetitive after a while… πŸ˜… I think I’ll probably stick to Sanderson!
    I hope you enjoy your trip!
