Christmas is less than a week away and therefore this is the perfect timing to do a Christmas Book Tag, I saw Lori’s Bookshelf Readsdo this cute tag and what’s better than a Christmas Tag to get into the Christmas spirit?
#1 Hot Chocolate: Marshmallows and Chocolate and Whipped Cream, oh my! Recommend a book that’s sweet through and through.
I am not the biggest contemporary reader – this category obviously refers to contemporary – but this is one of the best sweet books I’ve read so far. Top Tenby Katie Cotugno covers High School experiences, friendship, popularity and first love and is one of the cutest books I’ve ever read. Some people – me included – might count this to “trashy reads”, but when you read one of those cheesy books once in a while, it’s actually fun. I’m not the type of person who can only reads books like this one because it gets exhausting: I need action, fantasy, conspiracy, but once in a while, it’s ok.
#2 Peppermint Mocha: The flavor of Peppermint is strong and distinct. Recommend a book with a lot of strong emotions.
If there is a book with strong emotions, it’s this one. To kill, to fight, to avenge something. Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashesis a bundle of strong emotions – good or bad they might be, it makes a heck of a story. The sequel, A Torch in the Night is still on by TBR list, but I am getting to it because this book breaths fire.
#3 Apple Cider: It’s so good, it can’t be good for you, but it’s from apples – that means it’s healthy, right? Recommend a book full of characters with questionable morals.
For sure, A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’m only half way through this book as I needed a little break from the Middle Ages, but let’s be real: it’s pretty awesome. There are a lot of characters with questionable morals, as far as I can tell. But I have to finish it first to be the judge of that.
#4 Eggnog: It’s creamy and smooth, with a little spice. Recommend a book that’s mostly fun, with just a hint of danger.
The Selection series by Kiera Cass was ENORMOUSLY fun to read. With just a little danger, the book focuses on the “bride to be”. This series was perfect to escape the real world, dive into the world of princesses, throwns, dresses and royalty…
#5 Gingerbread Latte: A drink with a veritable explosion of spices. Recommend a book with a lot of action.
Seriously, what’s better than Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crowsduology? A heist, a impenetrable prison, six outcasts on a mission? This book firmly SCREAMS action. I am in love with this series because the characters, the plot, the turning points – everything is on point, carved to perfection.
