I was tagged in this super cute tag last week by the wonderfully kind Brittany over at the Perfectly Tolerable blog. She claims to be only ‘perfectly tolerable’ and ‘average-ish’ but in reality she’s such a kind, supportive blogging friend that writes some amazing reviews. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet…. what are you waiting for?!

I had a hard time coming up with a book for this one! All I could think of was the second instalment in the Dark Hunter series that follows Talon, the intelligent Dark Hunter that prefers to be elusive and lives near a swamp (they count as rivers right?). He even has a pet alligator!
I ADORED this sea-adventure. Poppy’s endless spirit and ability to cause mayhem was not only hilarious but endearing. Poor Captain Andrew had a lot to deal with when Poppy became a stow-away aboard his ship!
Told in verse, The Art of Taxidermy deals with some pretty gruesome (at least for me) themes of a child’s passion concerning the art of taxidermy. I mean… it’s great to have a passion but if my kid started bringing dead squirrels home to stuff them I’d be a little unnerved!
As one of my first space-set adventures, Illuminae had me completely hooked from the very first page to the last! It’s a shame the rest of the books in the series seemed quite repetitive but alas there’s nothing to do about that. At least the first book was brilliantly good!
I’m currently reading this book for next month’s book club and it’s set along the North Carolina coast. The book’s description of the natural environment so far has been nothing less than spell-binding.
While I didn’t enjoy this book very much, the castle of Emberfall played a prominent role in this book and it was the first one I could think of for this theme.
What more whimsy do you need than falling down the rabbit hole and embarking on a full-fledged adventure? My favourite was always the Cheshire Cat!
If anything, almost this entire story was about trekking through wilderness, plains, forests and mountains in search of help after having crash landed on a planet. While it’s not my favourite book from both of these authors it was still an enjoyable read.
While this story was a DNF for me, the strong latin culture and themes set within it make it suitable for this category. This is one of those books that I had such high hopes for. Unfortunately, the story never seemed to click for me.
Aurora Rising was a book I had to read as I’d fallen in love with the duo of Kaufman and Kristoff’s writing after having read Illuminae. This was a fast-paced adventurous story featuring kick-ass characters and a squad I’d love to join. Fin will always have my heart! I’m counting down the days until Aurora Burning (THREE) !!
