Hello bookworms! Today I’m here to bring you the Coffee Book Tag. I haven’t been tagged by anyone (as I’m aware of) but I want to do it so…
For the past month I’ve found myself in a massive book slump. It’s been really bad, meaning I only read one book in the month of May. However, I’m feeling more into reading now so hopefully I’ll be picking up more books soon.
Anyway, let’s begin!
Question #1: Black: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
I am still one of the many few who hasn’t fell to the hype of the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. I have my own personal issues with the TV show and I find the books really intimidating.
Question #2: Peppermint mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.
Definitely the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. I mainly read these books during the Autumn and Winter months as they give me that sort of feel. Just my opinion.
Question #3: Hot chocolate: What is your favorite children’s book?
The Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy. I’m still reading these books but I’m up to number nine of the series and still absolutely adore them. I began reading these when I was 11.. I think? And I loved them then, and I love them now.
Question #4: Double shot of espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
Definitely Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. This is my favourite of the original trilogy and was so much fun!
Question #5: Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere.
Definitely Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I still haven’t read these books (don’t even..) but I do plan to. I am a bit intimidated by the hype, though.
Question #6: That hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shoutout.
I mean, I’m not 100% sure if Jennifer L. Armentrout counts as “indie” but I can’t write a blog post without mentioning my favourite author. Oops.
Question #7: Oops! I accidentally got decaf: Name a book you were expecting more from.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Now, I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy this book because I did. However, the hype was so big that I was expecting some sort of miracle book and CoBaB just wasn’t it. I rated it 3.75 stars but was expecting it to be 5.
Question #8: The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.
Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody was one of my most anticipated reads of 2018 and I loved it. Rated it 5 stars and would’ve rated it more if possible. I recommend this to everyone. Please read it if you haven’t already!
There you go. There was the Coffee Book Tag.
I tag anyone who wants to do this! It’s a load of fun!
Thank you for reading ♥️
