Been busy, haven’t had much time to blog, but here’s something! I saw this tag on a blog I follow, and I thought it might be fun!
Black: A series that’s tough to get into but has a hardcore fan base
A Song of Ice and Fire By George R. R. Martin
Personally I LOVE the TV show, Game of Thrones, but the book is so hard to read. I have the audio book, and the ebook and yet I still can’t get through it. I’ve tried several times since 2011 when the show aired, but I’ll keep trying.
Peppermint Mocha: A book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year
Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling
I always see an influx of Harry Potter books during the holiday season, maybe it’s everyone’s go-to-gift? (but doesn’t everyone and their mom already own a copy?? if they don’t they must live in a closet under the stairs…)
Hot Chocolate: A favorite children’s book.
A Tiger Called Thomas
I’m not going to lie, I have always been obsessed with Halloween. My inner goth girl always geeks out that time of year. I read this book so often as a kid, I’m pretty sure I wore my copy out.
Double Shot of Espresso: A book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
I loved this book so much I wrote a review on it! I honestly stayed up all night to read it even though I had work the next morning, whoops! *whispers* I regret nothing!
Starbucks: A book you see everywhere
Divergent by Veronica Roth
I watched the movie, but I was never compelled to actually read the book. Sometimes I feel like it’s following me though…
Oops! I Accidentally Got Decaf: A book you were expecting more from
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Am I the only one who didn’t like this book? The movie was good, but I felt like the book was lacking something. It was just so hyped up that actual book did not meet expectations.
The Perfect Blend: Name a book that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
This was a book I was actually happy to read in high school. Her life was pretty messed up (understatement of the year), but she was able to come out a strong person despite it, and I really admire that.
The Hipster Coffee Shop: A book by an indie writer
My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy by Grace Mineta
This is kind of a comic book, but it’s also fun, and there are some pages that aren’t just pictures! I really like different cultures, and Grace highlights lots of interesting things about Japan! Find her blog here!
Chai Tea: Name a book that makes you dream of far off places
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
It’s set in a alternate universe, so that’s pretty far away. Plus, who doesn’t love this cover and daydream away?
Earl Grey: Name your favourite classic
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I read the children’s abridged version as a kid, and then the longer version later in life. I love Jo! I honestly looked up to her a lot growing up, she didn’t quite fit in, but she followed her dreams and did what she loved.
