I am super stoked about this post! Thanks so much to Kate from Once Upon an Ordinary for tagging me! I love coffee and books, so this is going to be fun! Hold on just one second, I need a mug. 🙂
1. Black coffee–name a series that is tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I have been absolutely shocked by the amount of people that love these books. They sound so weird to me, I’m not going to lie. My mind literally hurts from trying to understand when I read the synopsis of book one, then two gets worse, and three just looks downright creepy. This is my personal opinion of course, but maybe someday I will give the book a skim-read try, but as for now, they hold no appeal to me.
2. Peppermint mocha–name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.
The only one I can think of is A Christmas Carol. Nobody really things about it except during the holiday season. I read/listened to it this past year and really enjoyed it. No one’s got wit like Charles Dickens.
3. Hot chocolate–what is your favorite children’s book?
I read a LOT at a young age, but I would have to say that the children’s book I enjoyed most was Elsie’s Motherhood. I read the series when I was 10-12 for the first time, and that one was, and still is, my favorite. 🙂
4. Double shot of espresso–name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
Hmmm. . . Good question. I do enjoy suspense books. But, the one that comes to mind is If I Run by Terri Blackstock. One of those books where you LITERALLY cannot stop reading it.
5. Starbucks–name a book you see everywhere.
6. That “hipster” coffee shop–give a book by an indie author a shoutout.
October by J. Grace Pennington. This book was so beautiful and made me feel so much. It’s not what I initially expected and it dealt with subjects that most would be afraid to approach, but that made me think deeply. And the cover, I mean, come on.
7. Oops! I accidentally ordered decaf–name a book you were expecting more from.
Touching the Clouds by Bonnie Leon. Boo. I was so bored. There were a lot of redeeming qualities to this book, but i honestly skipped through a LOT of it. Plus there was at least one scene that was a bit cringeworthy in the “um, no, not okay” department.
8. The perfect blend–name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.
Oh, dude. I am the queen of bittersweet books. They are my favorite. I love books that can make me cry and laugh during the same book. Life After by Katie Ganshert was a fabulous example of loveliness in this department. It made me laugh and cry so hard in either direction. All the hearts for this book. 😀
Well, I based a lot of my answers off of books that I read in the past year, but those are the ones that are in my memory bank anyway, so there you go! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks again Kate for tagging me! I tag Grace from Pure Things blog and anyone else who wants to join. I would love if you do the tag, comment below with the link so I can go and read it!
