The Cookie Book Tag

The Rules:

Chocolate Chip: A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed (interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago)

I have been so bad about reading classics lately, but I always say that my all-time favorite is Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. This was my second favorite book all through high school, and it really shaped the writing style I still love to this day. You can feel the cold in your bones when you read this book, the messages completely will gut you, and the writing is so lyrical and beautiful and has so many meanings. Okay, I might need to reread this sooner than I thought.

Thin Mints: A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read (your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere)

You all, please don’t hate me. I swear, it is my book reviewer shame that I have never touched a book by Cassandra Clare. Everyone tells me how much I would love her new series, so hopefully this will be the year I finally start with City of Bones! Do you guys think I will like it?

Shortbread: An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of

If Holly Black ever comes onto my blog, and sees how I answer her for every question like this… I’ll probably be just a little embarrassed, let’s be real. But Holly Black is forever and always my fae queen, that shaped me into the reader I am today and is the reason I can’t get enough of all things fantasy. She will always be the author I can’t get enough of!

Samoas/ Caramel DeLites: An Emotional Rollercoaster (this cookie was hard … so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you)

Circe by Madeline Miller made me feel more happiness than any book has in a long while. I still can’t imagine anything dethroning this book as my favorite book of 2018. All the feels, but all the love and happiness, too.

Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover

The UK version of Uprooted by Naomi Novik is actually my second favorite cover of all time. Sadly, I didn’t love the story as much, but I still can’t believe the beauty of this cover. Also, have you seen the Spinning Silver UK cover, yet? It’s perfection, too.

Tagalongs / Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid! I went into this book expecting a cute romance with some LGBTQIAP+ elements, but what I got was my soul reflected back at me. This is such a masterpiece. I still can’t believe something so perfectly written and crafted is in the world.

Snickerdoodles: A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving

No matter how hard JK Rowling is trying to ruin my childhood, I will never stop reading Harry Potter. Ever. These books are so much of my identity, I’ll never be able to go a year without rereading at least one.

    1. THIS IS THE MOTIVATION I NEEDED, BENTLEY LOVE! Also… *tag* because only being able to tag three people just isn’t fair! I hope you’re doing well, love! And I’m wishing you the happiest of reading always! 💖xx

  1. I feel the same way about Cassandra Clare’s books! I really wanted to join the TMI fandom but the first three books were a little underwhelming for me. I plan on reading The Infernal Devices though since a lot of people say those books are better than the first three in The Mortal Instruments series.

    1. You’ll have to let me know how you feel about the later books! I want to badly to just pick up Lady Midnight, but I think all my friends would kill me! Haha! But I hope I pick up the first book soon, just to see…. we will see! Hahahah! 💖xx

  2. I do like the mortal instruments (and infernal devices even more)- personally I’ve had a bit too much of the series at this point- but I do think it’s fun and I hope you enjoy it if you check it out. I’m really looking forward to Circe! And I recently reread HP- so worth it 😉 Awesome answers! ❤ xx

  3. Agreed on Harry Potter, you won’t stop re reading them! And to be honest, I’ve never read anything by Cassandra Clare either, and SJM, although the fandom is really big, but I’m just not interested 😂

  4. Thank you so much for the tag, Mel! And so sorry this reply comes terribly late… Ugh.
    I love cookies ❤ ❤ So it's perfect. I unfortunately don't share your love for Holly Black but I'm still hopeful some of her other books will pull me in 🙂 I'm very curious about Evelyn Hugo as so many people rave about it, and also whether City of Bones will be something I'll enjoy. Like you, I have never read anything by Clare and I either am missing on something huge or nothing much at all. To be honest, I hope it's the latter because I'm not really looking forward to going through that gigantic series!
    Awesome answers, hon ^_^

    1. Awh, you are welcome and never be sorry, love! Life gets so busy, trust me, I know! And the fact you have never read anything by Cassie Clare either? Lord, my heart is so full! And thank you for your kind words, love! I hope you’re having the happiest of reading! 💗xx
