The Cookie Book Tag

 

Copy of Cookie Book Tag

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 :-).

The Rules

  • 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)

Anne Frank

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

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

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

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

Cause of death

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)

The Unbecoming of Dyer

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.

Karin Slaughter

 I TAG the following blogs and bloggers:

Life With Literature (Anne-Marie)

AwkwardAris (Aris)

Frazzled Fictions (Faye)

The Art of Feels (Kat)

Reader Fox and A Box of Books (Stephanie)

Books-and-Dachshunds (Kristina)

Lost in my Paperworld (Dorine)

Freed by Fiction (Frankie)

Don’t worry if you don’t feel like doing it and don’t feel obliged to tag me back later (I mean really don’t ;-)). To everyone else who wants to join, please do !

  1. I enjoyed reading your answers. I have only read November 9 and It Ends with Us by Colleen. I have a few of her other books including Maybe Someday and Ugly Love. Have you read these two and would you recommend them? I would like to read more of her titles.

    • Ah It Ends With Us Is one of my favs of her! November 9 is one of her books that I liked least because I didn’t feel a natural flowing connection, it was all stop and start… I certainly recommend Maybe Someday and Ugly Love too! Difficult to say but I think I have a slight preference for Maybe Someday, but you’re good either way! I love to see your review on your blog already!

  2. I’ve wanted to read the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer for a while, so it’s interesting that you think it became too unrealistic!! This tag was so great and made me want to read Behind Her Eyes, even though I’v never heard of it before. Great post!

    • Lots of people really like the Mara Dyer novel but I don’t like fantasy and wasn’t expecting anything ‘unreal’, I thought it was plain contemporary so… but that said Behind Her Eyes also has an ‘unreal’ component that I haven’t seen in real life yet. Weirdly so, I could get over it and just went with it… it was a different type though. I know I’m mysterious here but it’s for the best :-). Thank you for reading!

  3. I didn’t realize you weren’t a fan or rereading as well… I have the same thing- I think I have reread 1 book series before and I surprised myself for doing so (in truth it was bloody brilliant) however, I agree- once you know the details of the book, the fun is just gone! I am so jealous of people sometimes who have read a title a vast number of times because it’s their comfort read- it sounds so good 🙂

    • I do plan on rereading some books but kind of like when I read all the other books I have you know, then start again.. at least that’s why I’m still keeping a few of my top rated books :-). I think there are books that are better for rereading than others as well, thought-provoking emotional reads for example would be great.

  4. This tag made me crave cookies!! Haha I enjoyed reading your answers… And while I seem to have a love/hate relationship with CoHo’s work, both November 9 and It Ends With Us are among my all time favorites. ❤
