Olympics Book Tag

olympicsbooktag

Hey guys! Today I’m doing The Olympics Book Tag, because I’ve been due to do a tag, right? Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much luckily tagged me for this one – THANK YOU CÁTIA! And this tag was created by Valerie @Little Dutch Bookshop.


Artistic Gymnastics

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?

So many books are beautifully written, but I need to say Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover, because this book was beyond AMAZING! I loved all the little nuances written and woven into the story, and it’s just beautiful to me.


Athletics

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 you 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?

Smut by Karina Halle is super fast paced. Also hilarious. Also very very good. READ IT!


Beach Volleyball

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 wish more people would listen to me and read Chasing Crazy by Kelly Siskind, because this book is hilarious and a total summer read (though I read it in plain winter, with lots of rain and cold).


Diving 

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.

So, funny thing… I requested Crystallum on Netgalley because I liked the cover and I was a bit into fantasy at that moment. So, I might not have read the blurb. Or any review of the book. So, until I read it, I was utterly convinced that this was some kind of fantastical/historical setting… not!


Equestrian

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)

My answer is still Clive from Wallbanger, because that cat is AWESOME!


Rhythmic Gymnastics

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 need to steal Cátia’s answer here, and say Rainbow Rowell, because it’s the only author I’ve read several genres from, and I loved all of those books.


I Tag:

YOU!!! Everyone!!!! Enjoy! 😉
