It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for a tag! Just like the majority of the world, I’ve been obsessed with the Olympics so I just had to do this tag when I saw Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much do it recently. This book tag was created by Valeria @ Little Dutch Bookshop and I can’t wait to show you guys my answers!
SO let’s get started!
Artistic gymnastics are all about grace and beauty, especially on beam and floor, but if you only flex your toes for just a second on any other event, such as bars or vault, it can lead to a deduction that can cost you your golden medal. That’s why I want to know: What is a beautifully written book?
I love Maggie’s writing style! It’s so eerie, and haunting and completely beautiful. I love the Raven Cycle series. I’m reading the last book right now and it blows my mind to see how she arranges her sentences and weaves her stories.
Athletics is all about speed. In most events the fastest person wins, but in other events your speed is also an important part of your chance yo win that gold medal. So you can really say that speed is key. That is why I want to know: What is a fast paced book?
As it tends to happen with Ally Carter’s books, they’re all super fast paced, including this one. I read it in two days and it’s so easy to fly through because of it’s entertainment factor and the addictive writing. And the story itself, a heist, is tension filled and full of adrenaline.
Beach Volleyball reminds me so much of summer! I mean, you can only play it on the beach, it is fun to do with friends. It makes you forgive all of the sand for getting into places you don’t actually want sand. That’s why I want to know: What is a perfect book for summer?
I think the title speaks for why I picked this book but either way this one is a great book to read during the summer. It’s really fun and light and sweet, with it’s themes of identity and acceptance of life and the crazy way it moves. I would recommend it for contemporary lovers.
Divers is all about getting into that water without making a splash, but it is also about strength and, when performed by two divers, about synchronicity. But all in all the fact that they dive that far into the water, knowing that when they mess up, it hurts is very respectable. That’s why I want to know: What is a book you read without knowing anything about it before you started?
I am currently reading this book with my monthly book club friends and Gervan picked this one because it was a Kindle deal. I didn’t really know much about it before starting only that it was about ballet, and I’ve really enjoyed what I read so far though I have a feeling things are going to be worse before they get better.
It’s all about the horses with this sport, they are as important as the athletes who ride them. It is amazing how much these animals can do! That’s why I want to know: Who is your favorite bookish animal? (it can be a fantasy animal like a dragon)
Yelena’s horse Kiki whom she gets in Magic Study is my favorite fictional animal ever. She even talks! Sort of, in a special way, with only Yelena but still! She’s super funny and awesome and smart! I wish I had the relationship they have with my old mare. It would’ve been super cool.
Rhythmic Gymnastics is all about flexibility. Gymnasts perform all kinds of contortionists moves, and that all while keeping their eye on a prop. And they are also able to include this prop in their, often graceful routines. It hurts my back looking at it, but I want to know: Who do you find a very flexible writer?
I think Jennifer Donnelly is a very flexible writer. I’ve read various books from her, from historical fiction to fantasy and mythology. And I’ve really enjoyed all of them. I really want to read everything that she’s published because I’m becoming a huge fan of her.
P.S. I used to do rhythmic gymnastics when I was younger. I was part of an official state team and competed nationally all over Venezuela. The hoop was my favorite skill.
