A tag today. :”D I was tagged by The Orang-utan Librarian and it looks like tons of fun, so thank you!
Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.
The Martian by Andy Weir. If you haven’t read it, read it. If you haven’t watched it, watch it.
Macaron: Name a book that was hard to get through but was worth it at the end.
A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin. This was the first book I had ever read that was a thousand pages long. It took forever, but my goodness was it good.
Vol-au-vent: Name a book that you thought would be amazing but fell flat.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I’m not saying this book was bad – it wasn’t. It was actually pretty good. But it wasn’t ~Amazeballs~ like I had heard it was. So if you are going to read this, expect a decent novel, but nothing ground breaking.
Pain Au Chocolat: Name a book you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else.
Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony. I don’t know what expected from this book, but it wasn’t a linear progression of a super simple plot. This book was like attending a lecture. An entertaining lecture, but it was just… ‘here’s this and here’s this and here’s this’. The storytelling method of this book was pretty awesome, which is why I initially picked it up, but that’s really one of the few redeeming factors.
Profiterole: Name a book or series that doesn’t get enough attention.
The Relic Master series by Catherine Fisher. READ THEM READ THEM READ THEM READ THEM.
Croquembouche: Name a book or series that’s extremely complex.
Perdido Street Station by China Mieville. The world building and the visuals and the grittiness in this one, man. Holy cow. I could lose myself in the city this book takes place in. I wrote a review on this one, if you’re interested.
Napoleon: Name a movie or TV show based off a book that you liked better than the book itself.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. The movie I feel is a lot more fleshed out. The third book to me at least, lacked substance that I wanted in a series finale.
Empanada: Name a book that was bittersweet.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I love this book, but it killed me.
Kolompeh: Name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your home country.
Rook by Sharon Cameron. This one takes place in Paris, hundreds of years from now. But at the same time, technology has reversed itself. It’s a very, very cool setting. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Pate a Choux: Name one food from a book or series that you would like to try.
Oh there are so many. The one that comes to mind first and foremost is Butterbeer from Harry Potter. And all the feast foods from Harry Potter. And all the sweets from Harry Potter… you know what? Just set me loose in Hogwarts and Hogsmeade for a while. All will be wonderful.
And that’s it for this tag! I’m not going to tag anyone specific because I feel like I’ve been spamming people with them lately, but if you would like to do this, let me know you are so I can read your post!
Happy reading! :”D
