The Coffee Book Tag!

I was tagged by Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse. ❀ Β  I am not exactly obsessed with coffee but I still like my coffee strong. πŸ˜› Let’s get a cup of coffee and get on with this tag. πŸ™‚


Black: A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

Before you guys throw coffee at me, I would like to say something in my defense. I’ve watched all the movies and for me reading the books after watching the movie takes out the fun. I know, I know, you will say that there is so much in the books that was left out in the movies. I agree, I totally agree but I still don’t have it in me to pick up the books… maybe someday but not in the near future.

Peppermint Mocha: A book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.

I don’t know about others but Christmas time always makes me want to read books that have some christmas-y theme. I will choose “A Christmas Carol” for this.

I am still to read it. *sigh* What am I doing?


Hot Chocolate: A favorite children’s book.

Racking my brain… can’t come up with any… Can I say, all? Does it count as an answer? Oh my God… Why can’t I think of a book?…


Double Shot of Espresso: A book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Without any doubt, this has to be the book that kept me on edge the whole time. It’s seriously good.


Starbucks: A book you see everywhere.

With the new season out, it’s literally everywhere.


That Hipster Coffee Shop: A book by an indie author (a shout out)

The Museum: A Collection of Dark Poetry

This was sent to me for review and now is the only poetry book I own and I love it. I just love it. It is bone chilling and I got goosebumps when I read it.


Oops! I Accidentally Got Decaf: A book you were expecting more from.

After reading “The Fault in our Stars” and the high praising reviews for “Looking for Alaska” I had high expectations from “Looking for Alaska”. Expectations do hurt, man!


The Perfect Blend: A book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.

This book has emotions, you can feel the words, you can feel the characters… the story… the pain… the laughter… the… everything.


Green Tea: A book or series that is quietly beautiful.

Road trip, YES! πŸ˜€


Chai Tea: A book or series that makes you dream of far off places.

The way Anna keeps on talking about Paris. ❀


Earl Grey: A favorite classic.

No words needed! ❀


As for the tags-Β 

As usual you guys can do this now, later or never. Have fun with it. That’s all it’s about. ❀ πŸ˜›

The Burrito Bowl Book Tag!

burrito-bowl-book-tagI was tagged by Shivalika @ Β Whimsy JournalsΒ to do this tag. Thank you so much, Shivalika! πŸ˜€

Tags like these always get me thinking because for me there isn’t one emotion, there are many. So, to pick out a specific is brain-wrecking for me. But the feel after completing such tags is always good! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


 

Let’s get started- πŸ™‚Β 

Β RICE: THE FOUNDATION β€“Β β€œThe book that got you into reading (or book blogging).”

I always loved to read so in true sense it would be my school essay books or English textbooks. But my first book was- well, I am confused. I think I read The Famous Five and the Secret of the Caves by Enid Blyton first and then David Copperfield Exercise Book. This was obviously the start of my obsession with books. ❀

 

 

BEANS: THE FILLER β€“Β β€œA book with a whole lot of nothingΒ happening.”

Fifty Shades Darker by E.L.James. Need say more? If not for the little blackmailing, gun firing and coma stuff in the last book, I would most probably have named the whole trilogy. But the climax of the last book saves it.

PROTEIN: THE BUILDING BLOCKΒ β€“Β β€œA book quote to live by.”

These are from The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. There are many quotes like these in that book that have my heart. ❀

 

Do I even have to say anything? All of the Harry Potter quotes, come on, man, you have to love all of them. No exceptions! πŸ˜€

 

 

FAJITAS: THE CRUNCH OF TEXTURE β€“Β β€œA book with immaculate world-building.”

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Maegan Spooner.

The only books I have read that can fit this question are the ones I am going to select, because, no option. I liked both of these books very much. πŸ˜€

 

 

SALSA: THE DANCE OF FLAVOUR β€“Β β€œA book that kept you on your toes.”

 

Deception Point by Dan Brown. This book had me enthralled and kept me alert till the last fullstop.

CORN: THE EXPLOSION OF SWEETNESSΒ β€“Β β€œA memorable scene involving friendship/romance.”

Can’t pick one. There are way too many memorable scenes that I can’t figure even one out. πŸ˜›

CHEESE: THE BOND OF CALCIUMΒ β€“Β β€œTwo characters from different books you wish could be friends.”

Umm… this is a difficult one. Can I just skip this one? :/ I could have not included this question but then I would have felt like I cheated. :/

SOUR CREAM: THE TANGY TOPPERΒ β€“Β β€œThe quirkiest character you’ve ever read (protagonist or supporting).

 

Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.Β With all those wigs and weird clothes, Lola has to be the quirkiest. πŸ˜›

GUACAMOLE: THE COST OF CREAMINESS β€“Β β€œA book you paid too much for (based on utility experienced).”

Fortunately, None! πŸ˜‰

LETTUCE: THE HANDFUL OF CRISPNESS β€“Β β€œA refreshing concept/theme in a book.”

Amy and Roger's Epic Detour

For me, it is Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgon Matson. I will take a road trip someday just because of this book. πŸ˜€

CHIPS: LE PIÈCE DE RΓ‰SISTANCE β€“Β β€œA must-read recommendation if you like [this book/genreβ€”you decide!]”

 

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. ❀ That’s my favorite book, you don’t need any other reason to recommend your favorite book, do you? πŸ˜›

TABASCO: THE KICK TO THE FACEΒ β€“Β β€œYour favourite fight/action sequence.”

How about a punch in the face? πŸ˜› Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K.Rowling.Β 

Well, okay, okay, I know Hermione slapped Draco in the book but a punch is way more dramatic. πŸ˜›

(p.s. I haven’t read Harry Potter but I couldn’t think of any other scenes. :/ )


I tag:Β 

Disney Book Tag!

I was tagged byΒ Aneta @ Inspire ScriptΒ and I loved her post. Like her, I am not a princess fan either and I don’t even properly remember some of them but this sounds fun. πŸ˜‰

Let’s jump right into it. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›


 

1. The Little Mermaid – A character that is out of their element, a β€œFish out of Water”.

Mare Barrow from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. She has been a Red all her life and then she is forced to live like a Silver, from being a thief to being a princess, she is definitely out of her element.


 

2. Cinderella – A character that goes through a major transformation.

Vida Winter from The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. From being a ghost child to becoming England’s most loved author, that is a great transformation according to me.


 

3. Snow White – A book with an eclectic cast of characters.

Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling and
The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain.

 

 

 


4. Sleeping Beauty – A book that put you to sleep.

No book actually puts me to sleep or all the books put me to sleep? I don’t know. I read till I fall asleep so this is a tricky one. I don’t think I will answer this, although I named a book inΒ The Bedtime Book Tag, I feel it wasn’t fair for me.


 

5. The Lion King – A character that had something traumatic happen to them in their childhood.

Kelly Harris from Are you Afraid of the dark? by Sidney Sheldon. She was raped as a child. :/

Are You Afraid of the Dark?


 

6. Beauty and the Beast – A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful.

Deception Point by Dan Brown. It isn’t exactly beast of a book with just 556 pages. But before starting this book I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but I loved it. ❀

Deception Point


 

7. Aladdin – A character that get’s their wish granted, for better or for worse.

Joseph from Chocolate Guitar Momos by Kenny Deori Basumatary. He tracks down a random girl after 8 years wishing her to be his soulmate and well, she turns out to be that.

Chocolate Guitar Momos

Hazel Grace from The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. She gets to meet the author of her favorite book and gets to know what happens to the characters. (I read it somewhere and I couldn’t agree less. πŸ˜› )


 

8. Mulan – A character that pretends to be something or someone they are not.

I will again select Vida Winter from The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield because she pretends to be one of the twins who died. I won’t be telling more because… spoilers. Well, I have already spoiled it in a way but I needed to answer the question. πŸ˜› (You should read this book! ❀ It’s awesome. ❀ )


 

9. Toy Story – A book with characters you wish would come to life.

No doubt, Harry Potter! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


10. Disney Descendants – Your favourite villain or morally ambiguous character.

Voldemort! πŸ˜›


I had fun, now it’s your turn to have fun. πŸ˜€ Β I tag-Β 

I hope you enjoy doing the tag. πŸ˜€ If you have already done it or don’t wish to, feel free not to. πŸ™‚
