I saw this tag, originally created by BangadyBangz, over on He Said Books Or Me, and thought it sounded really fun. I mean, books and coffee - what could be better?
Black - a book or series that was hard to get into but has a die-hard fanbase. I'm going with Caraval on this one; although I know a lot of bloggers had the same issues I did with this book, there's no denying that it's really popular. I wasn't a huge fan of the flowery writing, but I did get drawn into the game.
Peppermint Mocha - a book that gets popular around the holiday season. A Christmas Carol. It's such a classic and instantly recognizable as a holiday favorite.
Hot chocolate - your favorite children's book. Behind the Attic Wall. It's one of the first books I remember rereading as a child. I named my cat after one of the characters! Although, since this book is about talking dolls, I'm surprised it didn't give me nightmares.
Double shot of espresso - a book that kept you on the edge of your seat. The Girl on the Train was such a thrill ride for me - I had to know what would happen. I lost sleep, I got to work late, I couldn't put this one down!
Starbucks - a book you see everywhere. The Kiss Quotient. Am I the only person not reading this book?
Hipster coffee shop - shoutout to a book by an indie author. This one is hard for me, as I don't really read indie authors. But this book, Wild Mountain, will make you want to take a trip to Vermont.
Decaf - a book you expected more from. I chose Red Rising. After seeing so many other bloggers rave about it, I finally read it and I was... underwhelmed. I did a lot of skimming and the world just didn't make sense to me.
The perfect blend - a book with the perfect combination of bitter and sweet. At times both completely heartwarming and heartbreaking, Henry's Sisters is a good mix of bitter and sweet. You'll laugh, and then you'll cry your eyes out.
Consider yourself tagged if you'd like to do this one, too!
