Do I Have That Book? Tag

This has probably been the tag I’ve had the most fun with so far! It’s actually more of a challenge or scavenger hunt, though, and it’s definitely the one that’s been the most stressful. I pretty much forgot about every single book I owned while trying to complete it.

Nobody specifically challenged me to do this, but I saw Tracy from Cornerfolds do it and thought it looked like so much fun! Thanks, Keeping Tabs, for originally making this!

Rules

  • Time yourself trying to find each prompt on your shelf.
  • Try and beat the time of the person who challenged you.
  • Don’t forget to tag your challenger and the original creator.

Chris and Maia aren’t off to a great start.

A near-fatal car accident first brings them together, and their next encounters don’t fare much better. Chris’s good intentions backfire. Maia’s temper gets the best of her.

But they’re neighbors, at least for the summer, and despite their best efforts, they just can’t seem to stay away from each other.

Little Free Library Adventures Part Two

Welcome to part two of my little free library adventures! In this post I’ll be talking about the next little free libraries my husband and I visited. I did realize, though, while I was writing this post that I never explained what these libraries were in part one of this series, so keep reading to learn what they are before continuing with my adventures!

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization with the goal of getting books into the hands of readers while building their communities. Millions of books are exchanged each year through these libraries. People of all ages that may not otherwise have access to reading material are able to find books for free within their own neighborhoods. How they work is those with extra books drop them off at one of the libraries and anybody else can come and find something to read.

Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:

* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.

* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.

* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.

* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.
