Months ago, I came across the Cake Flavoured Book Tag on Wendy’s blog. Check out her post here. It looked like such an intriguing way to talk about books and I thought it was really creative!
Chocolate – a dark book you absolutely love
Without a question, The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang. It was so dark but so good. So much detail, so much depth, and so much to think about.
Vanilla – a light read
I’ve just been looking through my reviews, and I don’t seem to read many light books.Take the Lead by Alexis Daria is the lightest book I can think of, and it was a lovely read.
Red Velvet – a book that gave you mixed emotions
I know that mixed emotions can mean you’re not sure about a book, but I’m going to go with a book that gave me so many emotions, that they all got mixed together. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir got me happy, angry, sad and I didn’t know who to root for, who was going to be good, and who was going to be evil.
Cheesecake – a book you would recommend to anyone
The Defectives by Burgundy Rakoska is such a great book. It has so many amazing characters and I think that almost everyone will find someone that they can relate to. It’s also not very well-known and I think it should be!
Coffee cake – a book you started but never finished
I definitely have books that I have DNFed but I can’t think of any at the moment.
Carrot cake – a book with great writing
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi is still one of my all-time favourite novels. And one of the reasons for that is the writing. It is lyrical and magical, so beautiful and elaborate. It’s just gorgeous and you feel like you are being transported to a fascinating new world. Her writing is also the main reason why I read every book by her!
Tiramisu – a book that left you wanting more
Claudie Arsenault’s books always leave me wanting for more. I just cannot put them down and when I get them, I have to read them as soon as possible. City of Strife by Claudie Arsenault is the book that ignited my love for her writing, and I am always eagerly waiting for a new book from her!
Cupcakes – a series with 4+ books
I enjoyed A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin a lot, as well as the subsequent books, and along with quite a few people, I am eagerly awaiting the next book. I love the fact that the narrators are unreliable and that we get to read how different people feel about events, how they react to developments, and how their circumstances influence their actions and decisions.
Fruit cake – a book that wasn’t what you were anticipating
I didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did, however Sea Foam and Silence by Lynn E. O’Connacht blew me away. It was beautiful, one of the first novels I had ever read, and I enjoyed that it didn’t focus on rhyme and incorporated emojis!
