Monday – travel day is always so tiring: name a book that feels like drinking coffee
I think I’m going to go for MEXICAN GOTHIC for this one. It had me right on the edge of my seaat and all twitchy like when you’ve had a cup (or two, or three) too much.
Tuesday – you realise you forgot something important: name a book that was forgettable
Umm… Remembering something forgettable is pretty tricky! I think I’m going to go with MIDDLEMARCH by George Elliott. Middlemarch was a huge disappointment to me and, for a book that was over a thousand pages long, I really don’t remember much of what happened.
Wednesday – you go out for an excursion for the day: name a fast-paced book
I find a lot of YA fantasy is pretty fast paced, but one that really stood out to me recently was ALL THE STARS AND TEETH. It was a really action-packed, non-stop rollercoaster of a book.
Thursday – the most underrated day of the week: name an under hyped book
Why pick just one under-hyped book when you can pick more? Here’s three awesome queer fantasy books, with great female leads, I wish more people were talking about: THE RUTHLESS LADY’S GUIDE TO WIZARDRY, IN THE RAVENOUS DARK AND MALICE.
Friday – you go out for a celebratory dinner: name a book with food on the cover
How cute are these covers? Plus the series is all about magical food and feast so they’d definitely make a good celebration.
Saturday – you don’t want the trip to end: name a book that ended in a cliffhanger
SPIN THE DAWN had a dramatic cliffhanger ending that had me really excited to jump into UNRAVEL THE DUSK.
Sunday – you’re sad the trip is over: name a book that made you cry
Both these Fredrik Backman books — A MAN CALLED OVE and MY GRANDMOTHER SENDS HER REGARS AND APOLOGISES — made me sob like a baby.
