I always love the book tags that surface this time of year! I was tagged by Michelle at Book Adventures to do this one. I don’t have a particularly large sweet tooth, but who doesn’t like candy? I think this tag is great, and I hope you enjoy it!
Apples – Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.
It is highly acclaimed and even won the Pulitzer, but I just didn’t love Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. I don’t think I missed the point, and I usually like plays, it just wasn’t something I really connected with and reading it wasn’t a particularly enjoyable experience.
Milk Chocolate – This is a book you’d recommend to absolutely EVERYONE.
This one’s difficult, because I don’t think everyone likes the same kinds of books (which is totally fine!). If I had to recommend a book to everyone, it would have to be something that speaks to different genres. Like Harry Potter. So I guess I’d go with Harry Potter.
Also, I don’t really like milk chocolate, which I guess kind of makes my point.
Black Jellybeans – Why do these exist??
Most of the Shadowhunter books. I liked the first three in the Mortal Instruments series, thought the fourth was okay, and made it like twenty pages into the fifth one. I’ve tried to read it twice, but I’m at the point where I’ve lost all interest in any Cassandra Clare books. To me, it seems like she’s just writing these because they’re guaranteed to make her money, not because they’re integral to the story.
Chocolate Kisses – Awww this novel had the best romance.
I have to go with one of my favorite novels: Pride and Prejudice. I just love Elizabeth and Darcy. I reread this book every year or two, and each time, it makes me feel all warm and cozy. Jane Austen definitely did romance right.
Gummy Spiders – Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.
Definitely The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. This book terrified me for weeks. Reading it at night is not recommended. I didn’t sleep.
Jumbo Lollipop – This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!
Took me forever (understandably, I think) to finish War and Peace. It was the most difficult book I’ve ever gotten through, and it made me feel like I can read anything.
Cotton Candy – Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think children’s or MG fiction.
My all-time favorite children’s book is Where the Wild Things Are. I will always love it!
