The Coffee Book Tag


I saw this tag on Stephen Writes. He has a fantastic blog. Check it out!

I have what is probably an unhealthy love of coffee. So, of course I just had to take part in this book tag. Excuse me while I make a cup of coffee first…

Black coffee: A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans: A Court of Thorns and Roses. Sorry everyone, but this series is not for me. I struggled to finish the first book, and didn’t bother to read the rest. If you’re in love with this series, more power to you, but as for me…nope.

Peppermint mocha: A book that gets more popular during winter or a festive time of year: Is it just me, or does everyone reread the Harry Potter series during the fall? It’s a great series, so I recommend giving it a go if you’ve resisted thus far.

Hot Chocolate: Your favorite children’s book: I can’t pick just one! I have so many. I’ve always loved fairy tales and Arthurian legends, though, so I’m choosing The Kitchen Knight for this particular post.

Double shot of espresso: A book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish: The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle was impossible to put down. It was the best book I read last year and I highly suggest you read it. Do it now!

Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere: I’ve been seeing The Ten Thousand Door of January everywhere, and for good reason. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Don’t let this book pass you by. It’s effortlessly captivating.

The hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an idie author a shout-out: Duckett and Dyer: Dicks for Hire by G.M. Nair is the funniest book I’ve read in a very long time. Read this book, but empty your bladder first so you don’t pee yourself while laughing too hard.

Oops! I accidentally ordered decaf: Name a book that you expected more from: I loathed The Hunting Party. I’ve been kicking myself for wasting my time and actually finishing it. I hated the “motive” (or lack thereof) for the crime so much that I ended up taking a break from the thriller/mystery genre for a few months afterward. Ugh.

The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying: The Perks of Being a Wallflower is not what you’d call a comfortable book, but it’s an important book. It’s one of my all-time favorite books. It’s difficult and touching, powerful in its honesty.

Chai Tea: Name a book or series that makes you dream of far off places: Reading The Night Circus is like entering the best kind of dream. It’s exquisite.

Earl Grey: Name your favorite classic: This is another question that doesn’t have just one answer. For this post, I’ll go with Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas. It’s a continuation of The Three Musketeers. If you haven’t read it, give it a go. You won’t be disappointed.

I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you’re a coffee lover, pour yourself a mug and do your own. I’m curious to see other answers.

  1. I can totally understand not finishing ACOTAR- I didn’t like that book either- though I was surprised to find I enjoyed the second one (but then again, I wasn’t crazy about the last one, so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend continuing anyway). Harry Potter is really good at this time of year! And Evelyn Hardcastle was awesome! I really like Perks and night circus too.
