Coffee Book Tag

Thank you to Cielo for tagging me to join in this Booktag! Check her out on Bellerose Reads, her blog is lovely!

BLACK COFFEE – Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner – I have tried to read the first book in the series many times, but I just can’t get into it! I will try again eventually, as I have the whole series and it annoys me so much that I still haven’t read them (I’ve had them for almost six years now).

PEPPERMINT MOCHA – Name a book that gets more popular during the winter season or festive time of year.

Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling – What with the films being on every Sunday on ITV during the lead up to Christmas! Especially with most of the books have parts of celebrating Christmas at Hogwarts – what could be better?

HOT CHOCOLATE – What is your favourite middle grade book?

The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo – This was the start to a very beautiful collection of books by Michael. He turned out to be one of my favourite childhood authors (that wasn’t part of a series of any kind). He writes so many beautiful books about animals including the famous story of War Horse. I’d highly recommend checking out any of his books – especially if you are an animal lover yourself! I would, without a doubt, still enjoy his work, even being 22!

DOUBLE ESPRESSO – Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza – This was the first proper thriller that I had ever read, and it was highly recommended by someone I was close with at the time. From the beginning I was hooked with so many dark twists and turns. The book is actually the first of the Erika Foster series, and am yet to read the others!

STARBUCKS – Name a book you see everywhere.

A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson – I have seen this book, along with its sequel, Good Girl, Bad Blood absolutely everywhere! I brought this myself such a long time ago, but it was before the huge hype. I’m yet to read it yet, and I’m really hoping it lives up to the high expectations!

THAT HIPSTER COFFEE SHOP – Give a book by an Indie author a shoutout.

Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James – I’m not sure how many books I’ve read by Indie Authors but when looking at famous self-published authors, this came up! I know people have their issues with her writing, but with the success she made from this series, I think she done pretty well!

OOPS! I ACCIDENTALLY FORGOT DECAF – Name a book you were expecting more from.

The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan – I saw sooo many rave reviews on this book, so my expectations were pretty high obviously. But I just felt that it lacked so much, it just didn’t make me feel invested in the story at all. I rarely give a book less than three stars, and I could only rate this at a two out of five. It actually made me pretty sad, I hate giving bad reviews, but there just wasn’t much good that I could say about it.

THE PERFECT BLEND – Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket – I read this series when I was about 13, I enjoyed them very much and they were very quick reads for me! The series contains thirteen books, yes that’s right, thirteen. Now looking back I wonder whether ALL those books were necessary? If you’ve ever watched the film, you’ll notice that only the first three books have been included. Maybe the director felt the same and that making that many films would be unnecessary? It has been such a long time since I read them though, I could probably do with re-reading them to be honest!
