Happy Tuesday!! Today I’m doing another Tag Tuesday, and today it’s the coffee book tag. I was tagged for this by Rachel and the graphics were made by Romie We Deserve Love. I think I’ve done this tag before, but it’s definitely time for an update. ALSO I don’t really drink a ton of coffee because me and caffeine don’t get along, but I like decaf mochas!
A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans
I’m going to straight-up steal Rachel’s answer for this one and say A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin. These books are hard to read because they’re so fantasy, but they’re so worth it.
A book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year
I think Harry Potter, though cliched, is the best answer for this one. Even though the Christmas season is only a small part of the books, they capture the festive season so well.
A favourite children’s book
I loved Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss as a kid. I can still remember large portions of it and sometimes my friends make me read it when I’m drunk.
A book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish
Recently, Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand. There’s so much happening and so much action the whole time.
A book you see everywhere
Anything by Sarah J Maas or Cassandra Clare. They’re everywhere, and I have no interest in reading either of them.
A book by an indie author (a shoutout)
I don’t really read a ton of indie authors, so unfortunately I don’t have anyone to shoutout. Sorry!
A book you were expecting more from
Recently, Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. It was good and I enjoyed it, it just didn’t live up to the hype for me.
A book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying
I’m going go with a book I never talk about, The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant. It’s definitely both bitter and sweet and had a satisfying element. I definitely recommend this one.
A book or series that is quietly beautiful
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. Personally, I think Ng’s writing is the definition of quietly beautiful, and this book really captures that.
A book or series that makes you dream of far off places
The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke always makes me want to visit Venice. It’s pretty much the reason I want to visit Venice (and now apparently they’re restricting tourism 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭)
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I loved this book so much and connected with it too much. I highly recommend it.
I’m not going to tag anyone today, but if you love coffee and love books, consider yourself tagged!!
Thank you for reading! Have you read any of these books? Agree with any of them? Disagree? Let me know!
