Book Tag: The Afternoon Tea Book Tag

Today I’m taking part in The Afternoon Tea Book Tag. Huge thanks to Danni at For Books Sake for tagging me – be sure to go check out her blog!

The Questions

Finger Sandwiches – A Book You Savored Every Minute Of

The most recent one I’ve read – False Colours by Georgette Heyer. It was really hard not to get swept up in the story, as Kit takes his brother’s place while his brother is mysteriously missing. It was a complete delight.

Scones – A Book Everyone Should Own

There are so many excellent, important books out there, and this one is incredibly hard to narrow down. But considering the current anti-trans sentiment in the UK, if I could force every person to read one single book, it would be The Transgender Issue by Shon Faye.

Biscuits – A Book That Can Be Finished In One Sitting

This is an easy one – Witch, Cat, and Cobb by J.K. Pendragon springs instantly to mind. It’s a wonderfully sweet fantasy story with a talking cat, and doesn’t take long to read at all.

Patisserie – A Book That Is Light And Easy To Read

For this one I’m going with Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn. This book is absolutely pure fun, and definitely easy to read. It’s great to settle down with when you really need to escape.

Showstopper – A Book That Blew You Away

I’m only dipping into my more recent ones for this, otherwise I could be here all day trying to decide! But for me, the most recent showstopper was Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher. It’s the first book by Kingfisher I’ve read, and it was as intricately woven as, well, a cloak of nettles.

Tea – A Heartwarming Classic

I could go into a whole post on what makes a Classic, but I’ll maybe save that for another time. In brief, Classic feels like it could encompass so much. For this, I’m going to have to go with another Georgette Heyer book, this time Regency Buck, because it is a fun, heartwarming Romance (though still with some darker points!) but the influence it has had on Romance, and Heyer herself had on Regency Romance, ensures this sits firmly in the Classics department.

As usual with book tags I won’t tag anyone specifically, but if you do fancy doing this one feel free, and definitely let me know so I can read your post too!
