The Cake Book Tag!

Hey everyone!

So if you’ve taken a look at my Tags & Awards page on my blog…you might notice a pattern. I have a major sweet tooth so any sweet-related tag that pops up on this wonderful blogisphere, I am totally for!

That’s why when I was recommended to check out the Cake Tag by another fellow blogger and finally got around to reading one on Thrice Read, I knew I had to do it πŸ™‚ Check out their blog in the link and discover more awesome bookish tags, reviews and other content!

Let’s get into the tag –

The Cake Book Tag!

1. CHOCOLATE CAKE (a dark book you absolutely love)


Dearly Departed – Lia Habel

I can name a ton of books that I love that are dark and I also happened to love but I think I have to go with Dearly Departed. In this book, where a dark future blends with the Victorian age, a young lady falls for a boy who’s recently been turned into a zombie. Throughout their adventures and sizzling romance, the reader (and author) can’t help but face the facts that this relationship you’ve come to love has got a definite expiration date on it.

2. VANILLA CAKE (a light read)


Bad For You – Abbi Glines

I freaking adore anything Abbi Glines related mainly because of the lovable characters that you come to know but also because of the fact they are all short and sweet reads.

3. RED VELVET (a book that gave you mixed emotions)


Outlander – Diana Gabaldon

I know, I know, I’ve talked endlessly on here about how much I love Outlander…and I do. But sometimes, certain parts of the book irritated me because of a group of men or one character treated Claire. But in terms of literally mixed emotions, this book has had me reeling, cheering, biting my nails and grinning – definitely a roller coaster!

4. CHEESECAKE (a book you would recommend to anyone)


Thirteen Reasons Why – Jay Asher

I always recommended this book to friends and family because I think it’s message is one that everyone should hear. It’s not an easy book to get through but despite that, I remember a friend once asked me if she could borrow it longer so that she could read it a second time :p

5. COFFEE CAKE (a book you started but never finished)


All Lined Up – Cora Carmack

I’ll definitly get to this one soon because I’m a massive Cora Carmack fan…but I tried picking up this YA read right after reading Outlander and there was just no way! I was in a totally different mindset.

6. CARROT CAKE (a book with great writing)


Bitten – Kelley Armstrong

Anything Kelly Armstrong is brilliant writing to me…I’ve loved her writing since High School and Bitten was the first book I ever read that I felt truly had it all – an engaging plot, characters you care about and several different genres all rolled into one book (or several if we’re counting the rest of the series!)

7. TIRAMISU (book that left you wanting more)


Thirteen – Kelley Armstrong

Which leads me to why I chose this one xD Thirteen was the last full length novel in the Otherworld series and despite it not featuring the P.O.V of Clay/Elena, I was still dying for onee more book in the series – or ten!

. . .

Well, there you have it – now, excuse me while I go buy some cake :p

Don’t forget to let me know what you thought of the tag in the comments below and feel free to take a crack at it yourself! I tag all of you – have a good week all!

      1. I think I’ve read about 100 pages of it and had to stop to read an ARC or something. I was told by a friend I didn’t read long enough to fall in love with Jamie or else I never would have stopped πŸ˜‚

      2. Oh my god that’s so true xD It is a bit slow because Gabaldon wants you to get to know Claire’s background and honestly, further on in the story, knowing her history helps you understand her choices better. So yeah despite a slow start, it’s very worth it! Plus, of course, if you wait long enough, the reward is Jaime xD

      3. Ohmygod yeah read the book first – I struggled in the same way xD But for the first book, that’s actually why I reviewed book one and season one together! They do it so much like the book that one episode is essentially ‘part one’ in the book so i read them together and saw one episode as a reward for finishing a part xD
