The Coffee Book Tag

Hey, loves! I was tagged by the beautiful Jami to do this tag, and my love for all things coffee and caffeination could not keep my away! And honestly? These questions are all pretty good! I hope you all enjoy! Happy reading and happy sipping! ☕️🍂

a series that is tough to get into but has hardcore fans

Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi
I feel bad picking this one, because Jami did, too. But holy shit, it is the damn truth. I’ve never understood the hype of this series, but the fans are honestly ride or die.

a book that gets more popular during the festive season

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins
I feel like this one is a little obvious, but I see so many readalongs and readathons that incorporate this book each holiday season! But I pretend like this anthology doesn’t exist because I one starred Laini Taylor’s story! YIKES!

a favourite childhood book

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J.K. Rowling
Always and forever the book that not only feels like my childhood, but is the book that made me fall in love with reading. I know this is going to be most people’s responses, but it is honestly just too much the truth.

a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater
I honestly was the most anxious mess ever while reading this concluding book. And I actually let out a scream unintentionally when Gansey put on a certain sweatshirt.

a book you see everywhere

The Foxhole Court (All for the Game #1) by Nora Sakavic
Lately? This book! I feel like all my friends are screaming at me to read; either because they think I will love or they think I will hate it. But I think I’m going to give it a try come January 2019!

a book by an indie author

The Reborn King (The Dragon’s Blade #1) by Michael R. Miller
I really loved this when I read it, but I am so ashamed that I haven’t carried on with the series! Hopefully, I will some day!

a book you were expecting more from

Enchantée by Gita Trelease
Okay, so I will probably post my full review for this on Sunday or Monday, but I really was bored while reading this entire thing. I thought this was going to be so much fun, with a magical reimagining of historical France, but it was just ungodly dull.

a book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying

The Traitor Baru Cormorant (The Masquerade #1) by Seth Dickinson
I mean, I’m still picking up pieces of my heart off of the ground, but this entire book was utter perfection in every single way.

a book or series that is quietly beautiful

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
After rereading this last month, I just couldn’t believe how soft and beautiful this story still was. I mean, this is a book that weaves war into the central part of the story, but love is the constantl theme and it is done do delicately.

a book or series that makes you dream of far off places

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black
Like, when can I go to Faery? Please make it soon.

favourite classic

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
I truly refell in love with this classic this year! And… hopefully *wink wink* I will fall in love with some other classics in 2019!

  1. Love your answers, Melanie! I adore HP and the Raven Cycle too, and totally agree with Shatter Me! I unfortunately didn’t fancy the first book, but have definitely noticed how hard core the fan base is! Wonderful post! 💕

  2. Great answers! While I have read some of these and really enjoyed them, the others I have heard great things about. I really need to read a few of them, especially The Song of Achilles and The Foxhole Court.

  3. So agree about HP. Definitely agree about Raven Boys. Oh boy, I realllly wasn’t keen on Foxhole Court- I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on it though (although I’m not sure I’d want to put anyone through that 😉 ) Shame about enchantee. And agree about song of achilles. Awesome answers!

  4. omg THANK YOU FOR TAGGING ME IN THIS. this post = coffee + books + YOU…my three favorite things. i feel blessed.

    agreed on The Raven King! i swear i did not rest for a moment while reading that, and whenever i stopped reading to, like, eat or interact with a human i was still 100% wrapped up in the book. & sorcerer’s stone really does feel like childhood like no other book does!!

    sooo ooo ooo much love for jane eyre ❤ ❤ (but even more for you!!)

    1. I completely forget about this tag for a second when you mention hot chocolate and Harry Potter and I was just like “wow, what a perfect comment, living the dream, that’s what I want right now!” Hahaha! 🥰❤️xx
