I just want to do a quick thank-you to whoever created this Pastry Book Tag. I don’t know who you are, but Kudos to you!
Hello all! Today is a Book Tag. I feel like I haven’t done one of these in a while, even though I did one just last month. Pastries are always a come and go for me, since I can’t really have sweets anymore [if you’re wondering why I can’t have sweets, it’s because the sweets sometimes leave a burning sensation in the back of my throat]. Aside from that, there are quite a few pastries that are very cool looking. Lets get on with the tag, shall we?
Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.
A popular book or series that everyone, including myself, loves… Agh! That’s really hard for me. The book series that sticks out the most to me at the moment would have to be the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I know, I know, the series seems to be everywhere right now, everybody and their grandmother has probably heard of it.. Aside from all the huh-bub about the books though, I have to say that I really enjoyed the books.
Macarons: Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it in the end.
Oh my gosh, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern came into mind. I The Night Circus was incredibly hard for me to get through, especially the physical copy that I own. I’ve found though that the e-copy is much easier for me to get through. I’d say that The Night Circus is well worth all the trouble of reading; The Night Circus is incredibly worth it in the end.
Vol-au-vent: Name a book that you thought will be amazing but fell flat.
A book that I thought would be amazing but just fell flat for me would have to be Half Bad by Sally Green. So many people had loved the book over on tumblr, and prior to actually reading Half Bad, I was looking forward to getting into the story. When I finished the book, I realized that I didn’t actually end up liking Half Bad. Half Bad, for me, just fell completely flat.
Pain-au-chocolat: Name a book that you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else.
A book that I thought would be one thing but ended up being totally differed from what I imagined it would be was After the Woods by Kim Savage. I had thought that After the Woods would be a fantasy type novel; kinda like, Little Red Riding Hood meets the Aftermath of what happened, in a way. What actually happened was this girl’s friend (friend b) went psycho trying to die and ended up being saved by her friend (friend a).
Profiterole: Name a book or series that doesn’t get enough attention.
A book that doesn’t get enough attention would have to be Lies My Girlfriend Told Me by Julie Anne Peters. I know that this book was published a few years ago, but daaaang, Lies My Girlfriend Told Me is probably one of the few Lesbian Contemporary stories that I’ve read. I was surprised actually, at how much I loved Lies My Girlfriend Told Me. That book completely snuck up on me.
Croquembouche: Name a book or series that’s completely complex.
A book that I found to be quite simple, yet complex was Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan. The book tells a story of how the main character (and so many other people) we’re wronged one night that led the main character to get revenge in a way that would leave the nation shocked if they ever found out.
Napoleon: Name a movie or TV show based off a book that you liked better than the book itself.
In this case I’m going to have to go with whatever came first. Kinda like that saying, “What came first; the chicken or the egg?” Well, I enjoyed reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, but I enjoyed the movie waaay more.
Empanada: Name a book that was bittersweet.
A book that I found to be bittersweet was the last book in the Something Strange and Deadly trilogy, Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard. I won’t go into details, just in case you’re interested in someday reading the trilogy, but maaaaan, the ending to that book was so freakin’ bittersweet.
Kolompeh: Name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your own country.
Since I live in Canada, pretty much every other book I read takes place in another country. I could easily name a book that takes place in America, but I’m not going to do that. I want to challenge myself for this question… A book (series) that doesn’t take place in Canada, or America is The Falconer by Elizabeth May. This series actually takes place in Scotland!
Pate-a-choux: Name a food from a book or series that you would like to try.
TO BE HONEST, I’d like to try every bookish feast, ever. But I know that won’t happen, even though I really want it to. The food from the Harry Potter series sticks out the most in my mind though, so I’m going to stick with that. — What food you may be asking? Well, almost all of it. …Not the slugs though. That was disgusting.
That’s all for this Pastry Book Tag. If you’ve read through all of it, I want to thank you so much! I’m not going to tag anyone specific, but if you want to try this tag out, then by all means, do it! I’d love to see your answers.
