I’m super sad to say today is the last Sunday of the Summer Blogger Promo Tour – well, other than next week’s wrap up! I’m featuring the lovely Jillian from Jillian’s Books. She’s going to be doing the GIF Tag – I sent her a list of ten books that she had to pair up with a GIF of her choice. Check out her picks and then make sure you go say hi on her blog! **Fair warning: one of the GIFs she chose is one of the freakiest things I’ve ever seen in my life**
Throne of Glass (Sarah J. Maas)
I absolutely LOVED Throne of Glass, and I really admire Celaena Sardothien for being brave and completely badass, instead of being the weak and reckless female that many people believe women to be. She literally proves that even girls can be braver than they are!
The Raven Boys (Maggie Stiefvater)
So I’ve been seeing this book a lot and I’ve never read a Maggie Stiefvater book before. BUT I WANT TO. Everyone has read it except me. And this is one of the books she’s written that I need so badly. SOMEBODY SHIP ME A COPY. (Please?)
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Becky Albertalli)
I don’t really read these kinds of books most of the time, but the positive reviews I’ve been seeing lately kind of make me really curious! And I’m quite interested to know why so I might pick this up one day, if I have the chance.
Anna and the French Kiss (Stephanie Perkins)
Oh gosh. I’ve never read this book, truthfully, but it’s been in my TBR for more than a year now. I just never get the chance to grab a copy. But I know how swoony the book is, so I’m prepared for it. Yep.
Second Chance Summer (Morgan Matson)
THIS BOOK DESTROYED ME. I tried willing myself not to even cry at the end, but I can’t. The tears kept coming. I wanted to hate this book so bad for making me feel depressed the rest of the day, but it’s too beautiful! And sad.
The Lightning Thief (Rich Riordan)
This is one of my most favorite childhood books ever, and I grew up reading this while I was in my preteen years. It brings so much memories! The Lightning Thief — and all the characters in it — became my best friends the whole time I was reading it. It makes me want to hug this book and its characters for accompanying me through.
