I would take a fresh chocolate chip cookie over any other desert. Not a big fan of cake. Don’t like the texture of most puddings. But a fresh baked cookies is the best.
And that is pretty much all I need to sum up this tag 😂 You guys know what a book tag is, and this one is themed around books!
Chocolate Chip: A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed
I have so many! Hamlet and Moby Dick are two of my all-time favorite classics. Recently I’ve been in a Shakespeare mood, so I think I like Hamlet a bit more at the moment. I actually have a Hamlet-inspired photo series planned for my Instagram, if Amazon ever decides to ship the crown that I need.
I’m not bitter
Thin Mints: A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read
Uh, there are most definitely no fandoms I’m interested in joining. When I first started, it was a lot of fun, and I still love the Percy Jackson and Lunar Chronicles fandom. But lately ALL fandoms have pretty much become a toxic space.
As for a hyped book I want to read, I’d say An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.
Shortbread: An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of
Marissa Meyer and C.J. Redwine! I love both of their works so much. I’m all caught up on M.M. books but I still need to read Bloodspell by Redwine.
Samoas/ Caramel DeLites: An Emotional Rollercoaster
I can’t really remember the last book to take me on an emotional rollercoaster. YA has kinda been letting me down in that aspect. But maybe We Are Okay by Nina LaCour. I read that at least two years ago, I think.
Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover
I think Lucy Tempest’s covers definitely mislead her books. She’s an indie author, and the kinda trope-y girl-in-a-dress cover downplays the amazing story she’s written.
A lot of indie books read like fan fiction, but if you gave me her novel I wouldn’t be able to tell if it was traditionally published or not.
Tagalongs/ Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected
Roar by Cora Carmack. I was expecting some cool elemental fantasy with some romance…and what it was was a romance novel with a fantasy cover. Not to mention both the love interest AND the main character were unbearable. The MC especially. I actually posted my one and only rant about this book.*
*(I DNF-ed the book at about halfway, so no spoilers in the aforementioned post, which you can find here).
Soft Sugar Cookies: A Book Just as Good as it Sounds
It’s hard for me to say, as reading is subjective, and I can’t rec one story to everyone. But for me, The Traitor Prince was just as good as the description made it out to be. (Spoiler-free review here)
A middle-eastern retelling inspired by the Arabian tale The False Prince and The Prince and the Pauper
Javan Najafai, the crown prince of Akram, has spent the last ten years at school, far away from his kingdom. He’s been eagerly awaiting his return home to his ailing father, but his journey there goes dangerously wrong. A mysterious imposter has taken his place—and no one will believe Javan is the true prince.
After barely escaping the imposter’s hitmen, Javan is thrown in the most dangerous prison in his kingdom—Maqbara. The only way to gain an audience with the king and reveal the truth is to fight his way out in the prison’s yearly tournament, which pits inmates against a coterie of the deadliest creatures in the world.
The one person who can help him is Sajda, a strong and secretive girl who has been enslaved by Maqbara’s warden since she was a child. Working with Sajda might be the only way Javan can escape alive—but she’s hiding something.
Together, Javan and Sajda will have to outwit the dangerous warden, outfight the hundreds of deadly creatures, and outlast the murderous prisoners intent on killing Javan before he can win—in order to fight for their freedom, and take down the imposter once and for all.
I’m not tagging anyone, since I’ve done a lot of book tags recently and the four friends that I usually tag are probably worn out by now.
