I have a need to make lists. All the book tags I get tagged for feed this obsession to make them. Today, I’m doing The Pastry Book Tag, wherein I compare the most delicious books I’ve devoured to some delicious pastries (some of which I have no clue how they taste, lol).
Thanks goes to Trisha Ann @ The Bookgasm for tagging me! Let’s get to it.
CROISSANT: NAME A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES THAT EVERYONE (INCLUDING YOU) LOVES
The fandom for The Infernal Devices is massive. Everyone I talk to who has read the series loves it. My favorite of the three is Clockwork Princess. Ask me again though in a week and it’ll probably be Clockwork Prince. They’re all so good!
MACARONS: NAME A BOOK THAT WAS HARD TO GET THROUGH BUT WORTH IT IN THE END
I’ve got nothing. As of right now, if a book is hard to get through, I’m not reading it. End of story.
VOL-AU-VENT: NAME A BOOK THAT YOU THOUGHT WILL BE AMAZING BUT FELL FLAT
Ugh, I hate saying anything negative about any book. But “Zeroes” just wasn’t everything I wanted it to be. I feel like maybe I was in a weird place at the time I was reading it, which definitely may have contributed to the fact that I wasn’t super into it. What I do know is this: I love Anon. The next book can be just about him. That is all.
PAIN-AU-CHOCOLAT: NAME A BOOK THAT YOU THOUGH WOULD BE ONE THING BUT TURNED OUT TO BE SOMETHING ELSE
I didn’t know what the series was about, but all the hype with the new book coming out soon got me interested. I was beyond pleasantly surprised by what I got from “The Raven Boys” and I’m totally on that bandwagon of raving fans. I adore Ronan, he’s totally unhinged, but I guess I’m into that.
PROFITEROLE: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT DOESN’T GET ENOUGH ATTENTION
I won’t stop talking about this book until everyone I know has read it. Kbye.
CROQUEMBOUCHE: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT’S COMPLETELY COMPLEX.
So many layers. Like an onion. Okay, not like an onion. But Pierce Brown really does take world building to another level. I’d like to see someone deconstruct his book ala “Better Novel Project” style and show those of us writers out there who struggle with world building how to do it right (wait, is that just me? *backs away slowly and hides in a corner*). This book had everything I didn’t know I needed in world building. Complex characters, complex lingo and dialects, complex caste system. OMG, I can’t even. If you’ve read it, then you know. If you haven’t, ummm, what are you still doing here? Go read it now!
NAPOLEON: NAME A MOVIE OR TV SHOW BASED OFF A BOOK THAT YOU LIKED BETTER THAN THE BOOK ITSELF.
Yeah…this isn’t actually a thing for me. I love the books more. Always.
EMPANADA: NAME A BOOK THAT WAS BITTERSWEET
*Stuffs tissue away* Seriously, this book gave me all the feels. The sequel was also fantastic. After reading this book, I learned one very important thing about myself, I cannot handle contemporaries. I cry too much. But, apparently I’m a masochist, so I will keep going back. It’s too late, I’m hooked now.
KOLOMPEH: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT TAKES PLACE SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN YOUR OWN COUNTRY
Technically the majority of “Leviathan” takes place in the air. Hehe. But when they’re on land stuff’s going down in Austria-Hungary and Britain. I love air travel, I actually wanted to be a pilot before I left AFROTC in college. Suffice to say, this series fed my need to be aerial.
PATE-A-CHOUX: NAME A FOOD FROM A BOOK OR SERIES THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY
Anything described in the “Wrath in the Dawn.” Renee Ahdieh describes everything such vivid detail it made my mouth water.
