Hello, everyone~ How are you?
Today we are completing another fun little tag! Today’s tag is actually called the Coffee Book Tag, but I had to change the title, whoops! Anyway, as usual I have absolutely no idea who created this, but I did put down all the proper details of who to go to down below.
I don’t have much to say today, so read on!
BLACK: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans
Alright, this is a terrible way to start off the blog post by angering so many fans, but I’d have to say A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.
PEPPERMINT MOCHA: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year
Obviously Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J. K. Rowling. Let’s be real, it is an amazing festive book without being festive at all. Every Christmas I get this random desire to binge-watch the entire series.
HOT CHOCOLATE: What is your favourite children’s book?
Not sure if this exactly counts, but looking at my bookshelf, and not counting Harry Potter, I would have to choose Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif by Rick Riordan. I have already discussed these novels in significant depth, however, I will mention again, these novels were my childhood in a nutshell when I was at ‘after-school-care’ and oh-boy it brings back memories.
DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish
This is a difficult one, and I’m stuck in a tough conflict between Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas or Flawed by Cecelia Ahern. I honestly just can’t choose, they both were a wild ride, and I could not put the books down. I literally completely both of these books in a single sitting. So I’m not sure which one to choose, because I have to choose ONE. Argh, I’m ranting here because I can’t choose. I guess it would have to be Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass, this is due to the fact that when I finished the novel, I immediately went out and bought the second, and third novels.
STARBUCKS: Name a book you see everywhere
Currently? Weapon by Lynette Noni as it was only just recently released, and it is so popular where I live. It doesn’t help the fact that my eyes naturally gravitates to the section where it usually sits.
THAT HIPSTER COFFEE SHOP: Give a book by an indie author a shoutout
I have spent literally half an hour searching for a single book, a single book that is by an independent author, and I could not find one. I am disappointed. Not only in myself, but in my bookshelf. I swear I had at least one on my Kindle, but apparently not.
OOPS! I ACCIDENTALLY GOT DECAF: Name a book you were expecting more from
This was a tough one, as I try not to go into novels with high expectations, but I do have a novel that does have fit this expectation/category. This would ve the novel called We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan & Brian Conaghan.
THE PERFECT BLEND: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying
Oh! I have a brilliant novel that would fit this category- The Quiet At the End of the World by Lauren James. This novel literally had me so bloody confused but gripped at the same time, it was happy and sad… and the end. Oh my, the ending. Words cannot describe the mind of this author.
GREEN TEA: Name a book or series that is quietly beautiful
This took me approximately three seconds of hesitation before I thought of this series, now, this might be controversial as it isn’t exactly quiet. It has tons of action and drama, but the concepts and the photos, the characters and messages that are conveyed on the pages makes me feel like this novel is perfect for this category, despite surrounded and bathed in action.
CHAI TEA: Name a book or series that makes you dream of far off places
Again, for a moment here I was going to say Flawed by Cecelia Ahern, but then I changed my mind and choose a novel that makes me dream of bigger far off places, and of course, I immediately thought of A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R.R. Martin.
EARL GREY: Name your favourite classic:
I’m not even sure what constitutes a classic, so I had to actually google a list of 100 Classic Novels, and there I found a bunch of novels I’ve read/started to read. And of course, my dumb brain remembered an obvious classic I love and have, and have read which is The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Thank you all for reading, I do hope you all enjoyed! Today was so fun to complete, I just love doing tags. If they weren’t so boring to read through I would totally do them at LEAST once a week on my blog! Don’t worry, guys, I won’t.
Anyway, as always, if you liked this, comment down below. If you don’t want to do that, you can go to my Instagram or my Twitter which is also down below!
