I am finally doing this tag created by Shannon! I love it because it really puts me in the Olympics mood, even if the Olympics are almost over and I haven’t really watched many of the events. Sad. 😦 I guess there’s always two years from now in the case of the winter olympics. Those are my real favorites. Kind of. Okay, enough talking, time for the tag!
This is one of my favorite Contemporaries ever. I really did love it from the first page. Really, the first line.
Speaking of which, the first sentence:
he music practically floats out of the speakers, it fills up the fenced yard, flies over the swing set, and spins into eddie under the deck.
It’s a light, fun YA with depth too.
This was the first road trip book I read. Well, besides An Abundance of Katherines, which definitely does not win. Ha. It really helped with the differing
I really have no real answer for this, so I’ll go with TATBILB. Even if I was totally not into one of the guys. At all.
I mean, I got it, but…I just kind of hated it? It’s really how the main character only ever dated Katherines, all the way from Kindergarten. Like, that’s not normal. How is the name THAT common? I don’t even believe it’s that common. Plus it’s not like he moved around and met these people, no, he grew up in the same city, I believe his whole life. It’s just really weird.
Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants
These books immediately came to mind. I love them, at least, I believe I do. I meant to re-read the first one years ago and was a bit surprised at how un friendshipy the characters seemed at the beginning. Oh well, still faces.
This is pretty much the only book I’ve read with a lot of fighting and bloodshed.
You can blame my Contemporary heart.
Surprisingly enough, many Contemporaries don’t share fighting that isn’t drama related and definitely no bloodshed.
This book. Oh my gosh, so many unsurprising things. The ending, the ending. It’s a must read.
This goes without saying really.
I still love you! It’s only slow in the beginning! Then it picks up, quite fast. At least for me. 🙂
These are basically the only books I read in childhood really. In addition to the Fear Street series that always scared me and made me not sleep. Ha.
Animals, animals. . .
There’s a little hermit crab in the book! I really liked it because you never really read about hermit crabs in books.
I just. Yes. It’s not the book’s fault, it’s my fault.
No. No, I think it’s the book’s, actually. . .
It has two good friendships in it. One with the main character Emmy and Oliver and one with Emmy and her current (?) best friend.
I need to seriously read this book. I love the olympics and gymnastics and multi-POV books and girls in books, it sounds fantastic.
Have you read any of these books? What do you think about them? Are you into the Olympics? Favorite participating sport?
