CHEDDAR
THE TRADITIONAL CHEESE: NAME YOUR FAVORITE CLASSIC NOVEL


Okay, I’m totally going to somewhat cheat here and pick a modern classic, and that is The Secret History by Donna Tartt! I still cant believe how this book made me feel the way it did. And not a single day has passed by without me thinking about it. This story is truly unlike anything else, and the experience is beyond words. This will forever be a favorite book of mine.


SWISS
THE HOLE-Y CHEESE: NAME AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER


Good Lord, am I going to be able to say The Secret History for all of these? But another book that really put me through the ringer and made me feel every emotion under the damn sun was The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater! These precious babies, and I must protect them all at all costs.


BLUE CHEESE
THE CONTROVERSIAL CHEESE: NAME AN UNPOPULAR BOOK OPINION YOU HAVE


I guess this opinion is only unpopular depending on who you ask. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons is beloved in the romance community, but very strongly disliked in most other book circles. I personally really loved it. I know it has its faults, and I won’t ever try to argue those, but the story itself is one of my favorites and I’ll always love it.


BRIE
THE FAVORITE CHEESE: NAME AN AUTHOR YOU ALWAYS WANT MORE OF


My fae queen, Holly Black. Always and forever. The most instant of all my instant buy authors. And author of so many of my favorites.


GOUDA
THE DUTCH CHEESE: NAME A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO TRAVEL


Okay, this probably isn’t the best answer, but right now I’m seriously missing my Michigan winters, and The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy #1) by Katherine Arden is the perfect fix that teleport me every time. And I guess if we want to go the more direct approach, I’m sure the Russian wilderness would be cool too, as long as I didn’t die or anything.


AMERICAN
THE FAKE CHEESE: NAME YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BOOK/A BOOK YOU LOVE TO HATE ON


This is going to be a real controversial once, but I’m just going to be honest with you and say it. Night Film by Marisha Pessl. I hated it because it is transphobic, racist, misogynistic, but I love to hate it because “woke” people love to gush about this one, but completely tear other books apart. Like, call out all problematic content you see (because this book has a whole shit ton of it), or don’t, but picking and choosing is a bad look. *sips all the tea*


COLBY JACK
THE MIXED CHEESE: NAME YOUR FAVORITE SHIP


First off, this breathtaking art is by la-haine. Next, Kaz Brekker and Inej Ghafa from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo will forever and always be my OTP. FOREVER AND ALWAYS.


MOZZARELLA
THE SIMPLE CHEESE: NAME AN OLD FAVORITE YOU’LL NEVER STOP LOVING


This is such a cop out answer, but it is honestly my most honest one: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. No matter how much she is trying to ruin my childhood, I will forever love, adore, and cherish the series that made me the reader I am today.


PEPPER JACK
THE SPICY CHEESE: NAME A BOOK YOU CAN’T JUDGE BY ITS COVER


Okay, I don’t absolutely hate this cover, but it just leaves a lot to be desired, especially compared to the UK cover. But honestly? Any cover they could have designed for this wouldn’t even come close to how beautiful the story is regardless. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor means more to me than words.


MUENSTER
THE MONSTER CHEESE: NAME A VILLAIN THAT YOU WISH NEVER HAD THE JOY OF EATING CHEESE AGAIN


Oh my gosh, EASILY Ina from Inkmistress (Of Fire and Stars 0.5) by Audrey Coulthurst. I haven’t disliked a character this much in a long, long while. And that bitch isn’t allowed a single cheese crumb on my watch.


I Tag:

I hope you all enjoyed this! I was so happy to be tagged in this, or maybe I felt personally attacked, because I love cheese. Like, I unhealthily love cheese. Add cheese on almost anything and it will be instantly better, I swear! But I hope you’re all having an amazing week and happy reading! 🧀💛

  1. You’re so sweet! ILY Mel 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed this book tag; Sydney did an awesome job! Hey…Harry Potter is NEVER a cop out…because it’s beautiful! I was thinking that one as well ha-ha! I’ve heard SO many good things about “The Bear and the Nightingale” novel! I really need to bump it up higher on my TBR pile ha-ha! The “Six of Crows” series is high on my priority for reading this year! I just NEED to finish catching up on NetGalley reads and book review requests…I’ve had to decline so many recently…oh, the good ol’ days when I had ALL the time in the world to read…

    Honestly…your answers are fantastic! I’m rather curious about “The Secret History”; I’ve never heard of it before. I’m a pretty emotional reader though…so we shall see ha-ha!

  2. This is such a fun tag – I love your answers! I feel like The Bronze Horseman is one of those books people either really love or really hate, which of course makes me want to read it to see how I’ll feel. Plus it’s an epic romance set in Russia, who can resist picking up that??

    1. Lmao, you are exactly right about The Bronze Horseman – it’s love or hate. BUT IF YOU LOVE…. it will be such a good read for you. If you read it.., I’m going to lowkey creep and pray, Hahahaha! ❤️😘

  3. Love this tag and your answers! Holly Black is really a fae Queen! No one can write fae books better than her. OMG, I’m totally in love with that image of Kaz and Inej! It looks pretty amazing! They’re one of my favorite OTP’s too.
    Thanks for the tag btw! 🙂

  4. Yay so glad you enjoyed the tag! I really enjoyed reading your answers. Oh MAN is the Raven King an emotional roller coaster. To be fair, that whole series is too many emotions for me. But the last book seemed to be the worst especially. Harry Potter is such a comfort book, no shame in choosing it! Every time I read it I feel safe and happy.

  5. I would chant KANEJ KANEJ KANEJ but I think I’d end up breaking down over how much I love them so I’ll hold back. (But I love them with all my heart oh my god. 💓) And aaahh I actually love the Strange the Dreamer US cover?? I love the Muse of Nightmares cover much more though, since it’s less bright. 😂 (But I’ll forever be bothered by the fact that the word “nightmares” is squished omg.) Great post, Melanie! 💜

    1. I honestly felt like I was the only person who didn’t have the US Strange the Dreamer… so now I know you’re my soulmate, haha! And…. I AGREE WITH THE SMOOSH, what even! But thank you, beautiful! I hope you’re having an amazing weekend! ❤ xx

    1. I am the only person I know that passionately hates Night Film, so… maybe I’m blowing them up? But they are for sure there!

      And yeah… that print…. I even bought a physical from them on red bubble because I was so in love!

      Also – seeing your name on here… GIVES ME ALL THE FEELS! 💗

      Happy reading, Lea love! 💖xx
