Not tagged. I was going through my WordPress feed when I stumbled across the blog post of Ann @ Ann’s Reading Corner about The Ultimate Book tag. Curious and so I checked the entire post. When I reached the end of it, I saw some book tag related posts from her blog and one of them was The Cookie Book Tag. It seemed fun and interesting and so I decided to do it!
- Be sure to link back your post to the person who tagged you (which is not applicable in my case, since I tagged myself lol) and be sure to link it back to Nicole @ Sorry, I’m Booked who personally curated this cute book tag.
- Pick a book that corresponds to the cookie’s theme.
- Tag 1-3 people.
- But most especially, have fun!
- 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)
- 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)
- Shortbread: An Author You 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)
- Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover
- Tagalongs/ Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)
- Snickerdoodles: A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving
I fell in love with this book ever since we were tasked to do a play for it back in my last year in primary school. I forgot if we were really required to read the book in full but I know that I made an effort to do so because the synopsis piqued my interest. Even bought my own copy of it ’cause I was so into it. Wild ride of events with crazy characters (Helena, Demetrius, Hermia, Lysander, Oberon, Titania, Puck and more) awaits you. But aside from the entanglements that happened, one thing that I could not forget the most about this book is the Fairies’ Lullaby.
I just have to include Little Women by Louisa May Alcott in this category too. This book was actually one of the first non-kiddie books that I’ve ever read. My grandmother own a copy of it (I remember that it’s book cover is in color yellow with ladies gathering around) and I saw it in one of her desks. I picked it up and read it. It was later on that I found out that there was a movie adaptation for it which I also love. I love Beth and I’m still sad about what happened to her. 😦
The Illuminae Files Series (Illuminae and Gemina) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I noticed that there’s so much hype, love towards this series and I’ve just been hearing nothing but praises about it from my fellow readers. Even bloggers. Basing it from how the books were presented, I can feel it and I know that it’s such a bad-ass series. I hope I can come out of my Young Adult – SciFi – Fantasy reading funk and be able to read this.
I just noticed that the only authors that I’m really (really) anticipating for works to be published are Kasie West and Colleen Hoover. I also anticipate other releases but this two are on that “my eyes are itching and I want to read it now” level. Whenever they release a book, I know I have to slow down and savor every page but sometimes I tend to just gobble everything up. I usually finish reading their books in a few hours time. Or the latest would be a day.
Both of them have upcoming releases: Lucky In Love and Without Merit. I got lucky this time around because I was invited to be a part of Without Merit’s blog tour and I’m happy (bursting at the seams) to say that I already finished reading the said book!!! The only thing that I can say right now is that Without Merit is so different from Hoover’s previous releases. Way different!
The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher. This book has a very unique plot with complex and flawed characters. To be honest, I was scared to read this because of its plot. Just reading it got my stomach churning already but I challenged myself to go through it and know how the story will take it’s course. It frustrated the heck out of me. There were several times wherein I already wanted to tear my hair off. But despite that, what transpired in this book still broke my heart. It devastated me. So take it from me, there are lots of emotions involved with this one/series.
I enjoyed reading The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines but that cover is just a major turn-off for me. It’s loud in a quite unappealing way. I know that there’s an alternative book cover for it but it’s still a meh for me. I actually wish Abbi and her publisher will have more fun when it comes to her book covers. Like the ones they did for The Field Party series. There was a touch of creativity and art to it. It’s pleasing to the eyes and definitely captured the feel of the series.
Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer. I was so excited to read this because of its amazing plot that boasts about a book character falling in love with one of its readers. People around me were liking it too. But when it was time for me to read it…I ended up being disappointed. I was cringing on how overly love-struck the main character was and all the while her character development was stumped. The list goes on. I just had several issues with it. 😦
I can’t pick one so I just came up with the top four books that I frequently reread and are dear to my heart. I won’t elaborate more about them but instead encourage you to just read it. I love those books, so much! ❤
Well, that’s about it!
I had so much fun answering this particular book tag but it also had me craving for cookies! I might as well check if we have one of those stored. I’ll randomly tag three book bloggers that I follow.
It’s okay if you don’t want to do it. But if you’ll push through with it, I hope you have fun too! Don’t forget to tag me! Oh if you weren’t tagged and would want to be, consider yourself tagged by yours truly!
How about you, dear readers? What books that you’ve read fit those said categories? Do we have something in common? Comment down below and start up a conversation with me! 🙂
