Groundhog Day Book Tag

Hi again, bibliophiles!

This tag has been sitting in my digital blog sticky note for ages now, but I wanted to save it for today (sort of). At the time I’m writing this, it’s still January, but I realized that actual Groundhog Day would be on the same day when I usually do my weekly reviews, so I figured that probably…wouldn’t work. So I figured I’d just write it ahead of time. (Plus, I love this movie.)

I found this tag over at A Little Haze Book Blog, and the tag was created by Nina Testa on Booktube.

Let’s begin, shall we?

THE GROUNDHOG DAY BOOK TAG

Many people gather for Groundhog Day, but you don’t understand why: What is a book everyone gathers around hyping, but you don’t understand why?

Amazon.com: All the Stars and Teeth (All the Stars and Teeth Duology, 1)  (9781250307781): Grace, Adalyn: Books

And once again, I’m lured into a disappointing book by a pretty cover…sigh…

Personally, I found All the Stars and Teeth to be rather formulaic. Everything felt a little bit too convenient, and there wasn’t much about it that set it apart from the average YA fantasy for me.

The famous groundhog predicts the weather: A book you found predictable?

Storm and Fury, Jennifer L. Armentrout | 9789020538403 | Boek - bruna.nl

I had kind of a hard time picking a book for this prompt, but I ended up settling on Storm and Fury. This one was a DNF for me, so I’m not sure how the rest of the book played out, but what I read was painful. Besides Trinity being super whiny, there was the Chosen One Who May Be the Most Powerful of her Kind™️, the bad boy love interest that she wasn’t supposed to fall in love with, but did…ugh, it’s been almost a year since I’ve read this, but just the thought is making me a little sick…

Phil the Groundhog is said to never die and have the power to predict the weather: A book dealing with a mythological creature

The Storm Crow (The Storm Crow, #1) by Kalyn Josephson

(Oops, hopefully this tag won’t be all fantasy books…[nervous laughter])

(And two books in a row with “Storm” in the name…whoops…)

The Storm Crow wasn’t anything super special for me (3 stars), but I loved the elemental crows! Definitely something that I haven’t seen much in fantasy, if at all in the first place.

In the movie “Groundhog Day,” Bill Murray relives the same day several times: A book dealing with living a day over and over or time travel

Amazon.com: Opposite of Always (9780062748379): Reynolds, Justin A.: Books

(I spent FOREVER looking for this book…I could see the cover clear as day in my head, but I couldn’t find the actual title for the life of me…)

Opposite of Always deals with the same “living the same day over and over again” dilemma as “Groundhog Day,” and from what I remember, there’s even an instance where Reynolds references the movie; I feel like there was a line somewhere along the lines of “what would Bill Murray do?”

Punxsutawney Phil is from a tiny town in Pennsylvania: A book based in a small town

Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno

(another prompt I had to dig for a few minutes to find a book…)

Summer of Salt is set in a small town on the island of By-the-Sea, and it’s such a beautiful magical realism novel.

  1. On a whim, I had added Opposite of Always just because of the cover. But reading as it’s about living one day over and over again, I am more eagar to read it 😍 Summer of Salt sounds really interesting 🤔👀
