Thank you Shameeka @ Shameeka’s Fictional World for tagging me (a lifetime ago, really I think it’s been a year at least). I love cookies so I really wanted to do this one. It’s not an easy one but I’ve thought long and hard and think I might have found a few answers :-).
- In addition to linking back to the person who tagged you, it would be awesome if you link back to Nicole’s original post!
- Pick a book that corresponds to the cookie’s ‘theme’.
- Have fun!
- Tag one to three people.
Chocolate Chip: A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed (interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago)
I read The Diary of a Young Girl when I was still in school and I think this really started my interest in WW2 stories.
Thin Mints: A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read (your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere)
Behind Her Eyes is definitely hyped and I really wanted to know what that hashtag #WTFthatending meant! I’m very happy I finally read it and that hashtag is so well-deserved and can have a few exclamation marks for me even.
Shortbread: An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of
Colleen Hoover, if only she could write faster :-). She’s an author that I recommend to everyone who likes sweet romance.
Samoas/ Caramel DeLites: An Emotional Rollercoaster (this cookie was hard … so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you)
Desperately Seeking Epic is an emotional rollercoaster and I quote myself :
This novel holds a laugh and a tear, it’s a romantic and heart-warming story, but it holds sadness too. Neena’s sickness is like a sword of Damocles hanging over our heads, but what surmounts this pain we will inevitably feel is how beautiful it was to get to know all these characters, to see the love they all share for each other.
Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover
I really liked the cover. It’s written by someone who was actually in the major crime unit and has a lot of knowledge of course. The story in itself didn’t really excite me as much as the cover though.
Tagalongs / Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)
I didn’t expect the plot to take this particular turn. It very very suddenly turned all fantasy/paranormal and I wasn’t expecting this at all. I was really enjoying it but two thirds into the novel things suddenly went too crazy to believe and it was just a bridge too far for me. I know lots of people really liked this novel though.
Snickerdoodles: A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving
I’m sorry but I haven’t read any novel more than once. I have quite a good memory and if you know what’s going to happen.. it just spoils the fun.
I do have a few Karin Slaughter books and I see myself re-reading them at some point though.
I TAG the following blogs and bloggers:
Life With Literature (Anne-Marie)
