When I first say the Coffee Book Tag over on Coffee Book Love I knew I would have to participate. I love both coffee and books way too much not to. The tag was started by the YouTube channel BangadyBangz. You can see the video here. Lets begin!
“Name a book that’s really hard to get into but has hardcore fans.”
I’m going to say the Vampire Diary books. They are so completely different from the TV show that the fan bases are different. But, I have friends that are such big fans of the books they refuse to even try the show. I personally had a hard time getting into the first book, and never read past it.
*I’m not talking about the VD books based off the TV show
“A book that gets more popular during the festive season.”
A lot of people have said Harry Potter for this one, and I have to agree. There really is something about the books that just reminds me of Christmas. Probably because J K Rowling just has an amazing way of describing things, and her Christmas feasts just sound so amazing (and look amazing in the movies)!
“Your favorite children’s book.”
This was a really hard one to choose, mainly because of the huge amount of books I read as a child. But The Magic of Spider Woman might just be my favorite (which is strange considering my phobia of spiders). Something about it just drew me back to read it again and again.
Double Shot of Espresso
“A book that kept you on the edge of your seat.”
Unraveling. Without a doubt. This book (and the sequel) kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I read it in a single sitting. Then, I read it again. Unraveling is definitely one of my favorite books.
“A book you see everywhere.”
There are a lot of really popular books, but I think The Fault in Our Stars takes the cake. It is literally EVERYWHERE. Honestly though, I wasn’t that impressed when I read it. It was a bit of a let down.
That Hipster Coffee Shop
“Shout out to an indie author/book!”
I’m going to go with Shearwater by Derek Murphy over on Creativeindie. Although I haven’t read the book (yet), it is up there on my TBR and his blog posts about the launch were fascinating to read. Also, I love his blog, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to do that!
Oops! I got decaf
“A book you expected more from.”
If I hadn’t already used them I probably would have went with The Fault in Our Stars or The Vampire Diaries. But I did, so I’m going to go with Quarantine. It’s not that I didn’t like the book, but it wasn’t as good as I was expecting it to be. I feel like it could have been so much better if someone else (see: Veronica Roth or Suzanne Collins) wrote it.
The Perfect Blend
“A book that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.”
I’ve read a lot of books that could qualify for the perfect blend, but the first one that came to mind was definitely Allegiant. I loved the whole Divergent series, but Allegiant definitely took be on the hugest rollercoaster ride. I don’t want to give away any spoilers (just incase you for some reason haven’t torn through these books already), but I bawled my eyes out for two days straight after I finished it.
