Hello! Happy Tuesday! I am busy studying for finals but I decided to do a fun, quick tag for all of you.
Dark Chocolate — A book that covers a dark topic (abuse, domestic violence, rape, loneliness, bullying, death, etc)
All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood. I know I talk about this book a lot, but I love it so much. It handles a lot of difficult topics, like drugs, abuse, a lot of heavy topics, but it’s so raw and it’s amazing. Go read it.
White Chocolate — Your favorite light-hearted/humorous read
I don’t talk about this a lot, but A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman is a very good book. It’s about this old man trying to protect his neighborhood, but he’s a grumpy old man but it’s almost like the cutesy old man type. He develops a relationship with his neighbors after his wife dies and it’s just light-hearted and funny at some times.
Milk Chocolate — A book that has a lot of hype that you’re dying to read
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson. I’ve heard nothing but very good things about this book, and I wanted to pick it up last semester but I kinda pushed it away and never got to it. I hopefully will this summer.
Chocolate with a caramel center — Name a book that made you feel all gooey in the middle while you were reading it
This is probably A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi. There were different parts in it that I was getting all giddy about it because it was so cute. There was a part that I didn’t expect to happen and my mouth fell open lol.
Wafer-free Kit-Kat — Name a book that surprised you lately
Water Runs Red by Jenna Clare. I don’t really read poetry books that often because I feel like that they are similar in ways that just make them seem just okay. This poetry book, however, is different than anything I have ever read, and it was really refreshing. It’s about finding yourself, friendships, heartbreaks because of those friendships and life in general. It was something I didn’t know I needed.
Snickers — A book that you are going nuts about
Honestly, probably Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey Mcquiston. This book is definitely worth its hype right now. I pre-ordered a copy after my ARC of it, and I probably will re-read it. Also, it comes out today, so happy book birthday!
Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows — What book would you turn to for a comfort read?
I don’t really know, I’m not the type of person to re-read books that often so I can’t think of anything that would comfort me.
Box of chocolates — What series have you read that you feel has a wide variety and a little something for everyone?
This is a duology but Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. It has different types of characters that bring each other together in order to finish out Kaz’s plan. The characters all have backstories and the world building is very complex but it isn’t too hard to understand that you’ll get confused.
