Yakkety Yak...Let's Chat


Going with the summery theme of most of my recent Yakkety Yak posts, I hunted up a summer-themed book tag to do.  I spotted this one on YouTube at Richard’s Book Nook channel.  And incidentally, for those who can handle an acerbic f-bomber, you might get a kick out of viewing his posts for yourself.  I laughed and enjoyed Richard’s entertaining vlog posts.

Start of Summer: Attention-grabbing first sentence

“Here was the thing: life sucked if you let it.”  From Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis

Too Hot to Go Outside: Perfect for a day in

The Garden of Small Beginnings by Abbi Waxman is the one that keeps catching my eye from the shelf for the next chance I get after my review commitments.

Summer Road Trip: Perfect for taking on the road

The Promise of Provence by Patricia Sands and Ride the Storm by Karen Chance are going on the road with me ergo they are my ‘summer road trip’ picks.

Iced Tea Goodness: Cold setting

Winter by Marissa Meyer is a bit of a cheat.  I just could not think of a book I’ve recently read or planned to read in a cold setting.  Guess my mind is on summer.  So I went by the title.

Nasty Sunburn: Disliked

Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard is not the definitive book on my dislike list.  It just happens to be the most recent.

Sizzling Read: Recommend a Favorite

Too Scot to Handle by Grace Burrowes  The hero in this one was a favorite character in his brother’s book and I recommend Grace Burrowes Victorian era Scots to the Historical Romance fans.

And that is the Summer Loving Tag.  I’ll let you consider yourself tagged or not.  Love his tag theme titles.  Did any books come to mind for you for the tags?  What do you think of my picks?  Do Tell!

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

  • How fun! I might actually do this one. And yes, you HAVE to read The Garden of Small Beginnings. So good!

    • I am reading it now. Gah, I’ve snorted and laughed and was touched. It is great, Christy. Good call, there.

  • I have Lost and Found Sisters on my to-read list, it sounds like a good one. I’ve enjoyed the book by Shalvis that I read so far. I heard good things about that series by Marissa Meyer, maybe I’ll pick it up eventually.

    • I’ve read two chapters of Lost and Found Sisters and so far so good. 🙂 The Marissa Meyer series is good. Cinder was an okay read for me, but I really liked Scarlet. I need to keep going with the series.

    Hi everyone! Sophia Rose headed out for vacation, so she may be delayed in commenting back. Sorry, but I am hoping she has a great time disconnecting for a bit and reading some good books while visiting with family!

    • Ahhh, I arrived safe and have enjoyed time with my folks and my brother and his wife. Its hot as hades up on triple digits, but we just lazed about today. 🙂

  • Fun tag! I have only read the Jill Shalvis book from this post but hope to read The Garden of Small Beginnings soon.

    Love Jill Shalvis, and a few others look good too! Hugs…

    • She does seem to have the goods, Ro. 🙂 Enjoy your summer reads. 🙂

  • I haven’t read any of those. Hope you like them.

    • Well, so far so good, Mary. I’ve managed to read almost all of them. One was so-so, but still worth the read and the others have been great. 🙂
