I grabbed this from Books Over People, who is a total babe.
I’m sorry for being a terrible absentee blogger, but life is far too busy right now for me to deal with everything. Here is a book tag involving my very favourite food group…. shhh.
1) Dark chocolate: a book that covers a dark topic
Hmmmm. Someone Else’s Daughter is probably the darkest book I’ve read, because it was so upsetting. It’s the real life story of the murder of Anita Cobby and how they caught the animals/”men” who did it. Really horrible book, but the nature of the crime makes anything else impossible. It’s a really good true crime read, though.
2. White chocolate: your favorite lighthearted/humorous read
Awwwww hard. I love reading really silly romance novels when I’m needing something fun to read. Especially really silly Highland romances, they’re my favourite!! They’re almost as fabulous as Guy Pearce playing a drag queen.
3. Milk chocolate: a book with a lot of hype that you’re dying to read
Ohhhhhhhhhh… hype. How I loathe thee. There’s nothing really that hyped up that I’m interested in though! Can I say The Tenant of Wildfell Hall coz Anne Bronte is my spirit animal?
4. Chocolate with a caramel center: a book that makes you feel all gooey in the middle while you read it
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society EVERY TIME. Oh my god, I will never ever stop adoring this book, I don’t care what anybody says.
That is very similar to my absolute love of Caramello Koalas. Yes, I’m an adult. No, I will not give these babies up.
5. Wafer free kit kat: a book that has surprised you lately
WHAT THE HELL is a wafer free Kit Kat? That’s a foul idea. I’m surprised that someone ever thought of such a disgusting thing. No. Just no.
So a surprisingly foul book was Cloudstreet by Tim Winton. I expected to not really like it, but I was surprised at the absolute loathing I feel. Tim Winton is thoroughly overhyped and terrible. AVOID.
6) Snickers: a book you are going nuts about
Bid Me to Live by H.D. is my current heart book. I will never shut up about H.D. and Bryher so you’d best get used to it!
7. Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows: a book that you would turn to for a comfort read
Comfort reading is amazing and I have very specific criteria for my comfort books. So they kind of limit to Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre. Also any of their respective movies are what I go for too.
