I saw this over at Beneath a Thousand Skies and it looked like fun, so thought I’d give it a go! The tag was created by BangadyBangz. If you’d like to do it, please go ahead, but just make sure to credit the creator.
I love coffee, but I’m really fussy with it – I can only drink it flavoured! But my favourite type has to be latte. They’re just so tasty.
1. Black: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans
Wheel of Time. This is one of those books that gets recommended a lot, and the recent series may have introduced us nicely to this world, but the first book alone is so long, and it’s a fairly big series – it’s kind of intimidating, no mater how much you want to read it!
2. Peppermint mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year
There’s a few books that feel like they crop up every year around winter, but this is the first one I thought of. There are, of course, a large number of adaptions of the book, but it still seems to be a pretty popular story.
3. Hot chocolate: What is your favourite children’s book?
Like most ‘favourites’, I tend to shift from book to another. There were plenty of books I read as a kid that could be my favourite, but I went for this recent read instead. I read this as part of The Write Reads blog tour, and absolutely loved it. You can check out my review here.
4. Double shot of espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish
I was completely gripped by T. Kingfisher’s book, and loved every minute of it. It really felt like looking away when I had to put the book down, and I didn’t want to.
5. Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere
This one is really tricky! Mainly because I feel like I don’t ‘see’ that much hype around books anymore – I’m too busy focusing on my own TBR, and when I do see a book pop up on social media, it’s usually not for good reasons. Any books I can think of here are problematic for one reason or another…so I’m skipping this one (sorry!).
6. That hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shoutout
There are so many indie authors I absolutely adore but this is a recent read that I loved. I really got into this one, and struggled to put it down! It won first place in BBNYA, and it’s not hard to see why!
7. Oops! I accidentally got decaf: Name a book you were expecting more from
I really wanted to like this more than I did. I picked it up as I was getting more into Romances, and expected to enjoy this. It had all the right elements for me, but ultimately fell flat. You can check out my review here.
8. The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying
So with this series, a happy mistake on my part meant I purchased the third before the second, then was able to immediately pick up the second. Which was perfect because I needed to read A Conjuring of Light as soon as I finished A Gathering of Shadows! And this series is made up of bittersweet moments.
So there we have it! My answers for the Coffee Book Tag. If you give it a go, drop me the link in the comments so I can check it out.
