So I saw this book tag over at Chocolate ‘N’ Waffles blog ages ago (go check out her post here!) and it occurred to me that I’d never gotten around to doing it! Which is absolutely horrible because I’m a cookie fiend. Chocolate is nice but give me chocolate in cookies and we can be best friends :p Anyway, this tag basically encompasses my two loves – books and cookies which is freaking amazing…it might almost be as amazing as the Coffee Book Tag I did a few months ago ❤
Let’s get into it!
. . .
- In addition to linking back to the person who tagged you, it would be awesome if you link back to Nicole’s original post!
- Pick a book that corresponds to the cookie’s ‘theme’.
- Have fun!
- Tag one to three people.
A classic book that you love or really enjoyed
I think Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen has always been my answer for questions like this…but to be fair it’s also the only classic I’ve read that really gotten my attention. Maybe Othello by Shakespeare too…but that could also be the fact that my passionate hatred for the plays leading man runs deep xD I’ve been meaning to read Great Expectations by Charles Dickens for years ever since I saw the movie with Ethan Hawke so maybe in a few months I can finally add it to my favorite classics list!
A fandom that you really want to ‘join’ and/or a hyped-up book you want to read
I know, I know – ‘She’s never read Divergent?’ I loved the movies..well maybe excluding the last one…but I never got around to reading the books. I did try but when everyone was boarding the Divergent hype train, I was trying to graduate high school and had absolutely zero time to read. It was horrible because I wanted to so badly!
An author you can’t get enough of
Can I just express how much I love this question? Shortbreads are hands down my favorite cookies! I have the best recipe I got off Pinterest once and when I take those babies out of the oven, I’m not getting myself a plate for one or two…I’m stuffing my face! Anywaays…I love Kelley Armstrong, who has inspired me to write my own novels and become a published author for years. Her work is amazing and I will never get sick of reading it! I also adore Abbi Glines and her steamy, addictive romance novels. Her characters in Seabreeze will always hold a special place in my heart and she truly taught me something about writing in-depth characters!
An emotional rollercoaster
Choosing the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick surprised me but I was trying to think of a book that made me feel a lot of different emotions. And Hush Hush definitely accomplished that! Each book made me feel something entirely different from the last, the first being suspenseful and sexy, another being sad and leaving me with longing. Plus, there were just so many crazy plot twists and character development that I hadn’t expected!
A book whose cover was better than the story, or vice versa, where the story was better than the cover
Now, I’m not saying that Lovely, Dark and Deep was a bad read. I enjoyed it. But I do admit that I bought it because of the gorgeous cover rather than the summary on the back. This read by Amy Mcnamara isn’t exactly quick but considering the subject matter, it makes sense.
Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties:
A book that wasn’t what you expected
This question definitely has to go to Unwind by Neil Shusterman. When I first heard of the book, it was after watching a short film about the book on YouTube. I was completely captivated by the story of the short film but until then, I hadn’t really delved into reading anything that was heavy science fiction. So even though I bought the book, it sat on my shelf for a bit because I was sliightly intimidated. I’m so happy that I ended up reading it though – this is an amazing series. Probably in my top 5!
A book you may never stop re-reading/loving
It definitely has to be Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr 😀 I could never get sick of Ash’s story of the Summer court and it’s king and the way that Melissa makes the possibility of fairies feel so real!
. . .
I tag anyone else who hasn’t done this tag and wants to! I know I’m late on this train and I’m not entirely sure who’s already done it soo if you’re down or have already done it, comment down below and send me a link so I can check it out! 🙂 Goodnight all,
