The Cake Flavoured Book Tag

I love book tags as you all know, and I also love cake, so how could I pass this one up when I saw it on Bookish Rita’s round up of all her favourite posts for May. It was originally created by Cait @ Paper Fury last summer and has been doing the rounds since then.


Chocolate Cake– a dark book you absolutely love

Lost Boy by Christina Henry. I read this last summer and still remember how compelling it was, one of those books that I didn’t want to put down. I loved that it was a much darker story than I anticipated.

Vanilla – a light read

Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes put a smile on my face and made me feel good as I was reading it.

Red Velvet – a book that gave you mixed emotions

The Secret Letter Letters by Catherine Law had me laughing, crying,  getting angry and shouting at the characters, you name it I had it!

Cheesecake – a book you would recommend to anyone

Goddess of Battle by Gwendolyn Rachel Ackerman a book that I thoroughly enjoyed and definitely deserves a much wider audience.

Coffee cake – a book you started but never finished

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald  I’ve started this book several times and I can never get very far with it without rolling my eyes and giving up, again.

Carrot cake – a book with great writing

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens especially the audiobook narrated by Tom Baker. I’ve listened to other versions but I just love the way Tom Baker brings Dickens tale to life that I felt was with Scrooge every step of the way.

Tiramisu – a book that left you wanting more

The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories by P.D. James definitely left me wanting to read more books by her.

Cupcakes – a series with 4+ books

I don’t read many series, and the ones I have read only have 4 books in them, so I’m going have to go with The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Fruit cake – a book that wasn’t what you were anticipating

War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells wasn’t the dry boring sci-fi book that I thought it was going to be, a very welcome surprise.

I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you enjoyed reading this, consider yourself tagged! 😉

  1. Those cakes were seriously distracting! I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a coffee cake but it sounds perfect. I do love Tiramisu too yumm. I haven’t read any of the books, that’s really all I can contribute as my brain is just wanting to go back to the cakes, sorry!

  2. I’m on the same boat with The Great Gatsby! I don’t know why, I just can’t get into it, same with the movie too. Also these cakes look VERY delicious, my cravings!

  3. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen someone mention Lost Boy–I’ll have to check it out soon. I like retellings of classic stories anyhow, so it should be fun! Nice book picks overall. 🙂

  4. Omg this would be perfect for my food and book blog. I haven’t done anything but reviews so far but this may be the perfect tag to start with.
