Today’s post is going to be a very light-hearted tag because it’s Monday and I doubt either you or me wishes to read something heavier. I’ve seen this tag circulating the book blogging community over recent days and thank you so much Marta for nominating me! Please go and check out her Fall Bucket List Book Tag after this one 🙂 I’m only going to use books that I have read for these prompts so I’m sorry if the genres aren’t too broad!

Who else would it be? Lara Jean is an amazing chef and every part of the book where it described food my mouth was almost watering. It sounded that good. I don’t have Netflix therefore I haven’t watched the film but I’m sure it looks as good as it sounds!
A book has never made me physically ‘jump for joy’ though Wonder did leave me in happy tears. For some reason I find Middle Grade books really cute! SPOILER ALERT: there was nothing sad about this book which is what I really enjoyed. After reading some really dark and depressing stories, this really was the light at the end of the tunnel. I immensely enjoyed it.
There are so many books I could choose for this one but for me Undercover Princess particularly stands out. This book was full of some really cute romances but also had a bit of a dark side too. The main protagonist throughout the book was a princess-obsessed teenager with blonde curly hair, a bubbly personality and she kept her favourite teddy with her! If you don’t think that’s cute, then I don’t know what is. It warms my heart in a retrospective sort of way because I was princess obsessed when I was little. Sadly I’ve grown of that phase but I’m still excited for Frozen II in December 🙃
The Book Thief
Liesel and Rudy are the best friendship I’ve read all year (apart for maybe Six Of Crows – but the banter made it less sweet). Though SPOILER ALERT there was a tiny bit of childish romance throughout the book it was mainly a friendship and that’s what I love. When best friends develop feelings for each other it usually all goes horribly wrong (Jacob & Bella for example).
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
This book is definitely worth the hype, don’t get me wrong, though some parts of it didn’t seem very realistic to me. I know that it was set in America so maybe that’s part of the reason. Most of the books I read are only hyped up though bookstagram so for this prompt I tried to use a quite well-known title. Have you read this book? Do you also think circumstances change between different countries for teenagers?
928 Miles From Home
I read this book in a day for that single reason. It was really light-hearted and though the protagonist’s pasts weren’t all happy the storyline didn’t have any dark themes. I found it in the Older Teen section of the library though I’m not sure why because to me it felt a lot like a children’s book! If you want a book to pick you out of a reading slump then this is definitely one to choose.
