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! 😉
