Back in July I saw the cake flavoured books tag pass by on Paper Fury. This was a tag that originally orginated on bookstagram that she answered in a blog post and added a few questions too. When I saw it I knew that would be the perfect tag to do in my birthday week (as it was my birthday October 12th). Since I turned 30 I figured I needed cake. Lots of it…
Anyway I added the last question, haha.
A dark book you absolutely love
The Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. It has its darkness but is full of delicious characters and humor and interactions.
A light read
Enchanted Inc by Shanna Swendson is a delicious fantasy chick-lit book. Perfect for a light hearted fantasy read or as in introduction to fantasy. But another book that comes to mind is Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.
A book that gave you mixed emotions
A whole series actually. The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. I have only read the first 6 of 10 now I think. But I feel conflicted. On the one hand I love the world and everthing. But I had a hard time with the rape.
A book you would recommend to anyone
Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho is such a delicious historical fantasy book that deserves so much more attention than it has been getting. The characters are just precious.
A book you started but never finished
The Magician King by Lev Grossman. Honestly I liked The Magicians despite all its flaws but I could not get through the first 100 pages of this second book. Maybe this will be different now that I have watched the show (even though I’m certain it has diverged a bit).
A book with great writing
Anything by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. You can’t make me choose.
Book that left you wanting more
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I needs the Felicity companion that is coming next year so much.
Series with 4+ books
A book that wasn’t what you expected
The Book Thief, duh.
