It’s been a while since we’ve done a tag so I wanted to do one today. I’m drowning in papers and have pulled two almost all-nighters in a row so coffee is definitely on the brain. Time to blend these two things together and bring you an overtired coffee themed tag.
Let’s talk books, let’s talk coffee – sorry cocktails you have to wait until next time (or you can check out my answers to the drunk book tag.)
This tag was created by BangadyBangz, be sure to check out his original video below!
1. Black: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
For this one, I’m going with the any of the Shadow Hunter Cassandra Clare books. It’s not so much that it’s hard to get into, rather I’m so scared not to like these books because of the hardcore fan base. I’m thinking about tackling these books in 2018, but we’ll see.
2. Peppermint mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.
Definitely Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares. This is a book I hear almost exclusively during December then it vanishes for the rest of the year.
3. Hot chocolate: What is your favorite children’s book?
By children’s book do you mean middle-grade or children’s classic? Because I can’t pick, we’ll go with three. Favorite book for children I read as a child is definitely the Magic Tree House series. Favorite middle-grade books are definitely the Percy Jackson series. Favorite children’s classic is definitely Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
4. Double shot of espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
Going to shout of Dan Brown here. When reading Origin, I was so intrigued by the story and I listened/read the book in one sitting. Full review here.
5. Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere.
Currently, it’s Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. I feel like all of his books get a lot of hype and having never read one before, I’m debating if I want to pick this one up or not. John Green fans, what books should I pick up and in what order?
6. That hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shoutout.
I’ve discovered so many great indie authors this year. I’m going to shout out Brian Oldham. I’m reading his book now and am really enjoying it. I’m just ashamed I didn’t get to it sooner.
7. Oops! I accidentally got decaf: Name a book you were expecting more from.
I was between two for this one, but since I’ve already expressed my thoughts towards Fangirl on past posts, we’ll back Anna and the French Kiss today. I have heard so many great things about this book and was so disappointed. I go into why more in my wrap-up, so stay tuned for that, but yeah, not a fan.
8. The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.
Don’t write Harry Potter. Don’t write Harry Potter. Don’t write Harry Potter. You guys already know this series is a favorite of mine. It makes me cry, it makes me question the morality of the characters, and it’s been talked about to death.
The Lunar Chronicles! There were some moments that were sweet and like a fairytale and others that gave me the feels and yet more that made me feel worried, upset, and every other emotion a book can make you feel. I really enjoyed this series. I binge listened to the audiobooks and I already want to revisit this world again.
I had a lot of fun doing this tag!
Now, I want to hear from you guys.
I officially tag:
I know this tag has been out for a while, so many of you may have already done it. If you want to do it again or for the first time, definitely go ahead! Either tag me in your post or leave it in a comment below!
