Tagged by Lindsey! Earlier this summer she was on a roll with a billion book tags and I was lucky enough to be tagged in many (if not all) of them! Thanks for the graphic, as well.
BLACK || a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans
A Song of Ice and Fire series. I read Game of Thrones but did not like it. I saw the first season, and thought the show more entertaining than the book, but not enough to continue watching. Regardless, while it’s not for me, I can see why it’s so popular.
PEPPERMINT MOCHA || a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year
Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares for the holidays, and Anna Karenina for winter. Because why the hell not experience all that dreariness through a Russian author’s eyes? (For a moment I almost said “Love Actually!” but that’s not a book. Womp womp.)
HOT CHOCOLATE || favorite children’s book
I want to say Harry Potter, but in hindsight it was the Little House books — original, picture books, and chapter books.
DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO || a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish
The Lie Tree, most recently! Just about anything spooky or chilling grabs my attention (why else did my thesis cover gothic literature?). Books that make me cry, too (like Me Before You) will do the same thing.
STARBUCKS || a book you see absolutely everywhere
The Selection series, or Pretty Little Liars. Do not give an ounce of crap about these books.
THE HIPSTER COFFEE SHOP || a book by an indie author (a shout out!)
Massive shout out to Tara Sim and her upcoming release Timekeeper (Sky Pony, November 1, 2017)!
OOPS! I ACCIDENTALLY GOT DECAF || a book you were expecting more from
The Devil in the White City. Read it for book group and found it to be dull, long, too detailed in the nonfic bits and too sensationalist in the fictional-nonfic bits.
THE PERFECT BLEND || a book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying
Not sure what this means, if I loved all the good and bad parts, or it has bitter and sweet moments…But if it’s a book with bitter and sweet moments, I’ll hand that over to One Day.
CHAI TEA || a book or series that makes you dream of far off places
DAUGHTER OF THE FOREST. YOU WILL NEVER ESCAPE THIS BOOK! I’m going to find a way to put this book into every single tag. #challengeaccepted
EARL GREY || name of your favorite classic
Jane Eyre, hands down. Next question, please!
GREEN TEA || a book or series that is quietly beautiful
Goodness gracious. Quietly beautiful…perhaps The Winter Witch. The protagonist is mute, with Earth magic abilities, and she and her Welsh surroundings seem so surreal.
Hope you enjoyed the tag! Have you read any of these books? What would be your answers for some of the coffe/tea-themed questions? I tag: Dani @ Ageless Pages Reviews, Andi @ AndiABCs, Danielle @ Love at First Page, and anyone else who would like to chat books!

I’ve never heard of The Lie Tree before, but after reading your review it sounds like something I would love! A book that recently kept me on the edge of my seat is Sphere by Michael Crichton. It was so suspenseful!!
Great tag! 🙂
I hope you get a chance to read The Lie Tree soon! Especially with Halloween around the corner.
I’ll look into Sphere — Crichton is an excellent storyteller.
Jackie B @ Death by Tsundoku
I love this book tag series. What great diversity in literature! I am completely on point with you about Pretty Little Liars and The Selection. Get them out of my sight.
I’ve never heard of One Day, but I’ll have to check it out, for sure. Thanks for all the recommendations!
ONE DAY by David Nicholls. Check it out!!
Alexa S. (@alexalovesbooks)
Love this tag, and I LOVE Daughter of the Forest so I will eagerly support you featuring it in every tag every time 😉 Still quite curious about The Lie Tree, and hoping to check it out soon!
Thanks for the support, Alexa! I hope you’re able to check out The Lie Tree soon as well 🙂
Morgan @ Gone with the Words
This is really great!! I’m not a coffee drinker but I love these categories. Aww I don’t think I knew that you don’t like A Game of Thrones! But to each his own, like you said. I haven’t read Dash and Lily, looks like I need to add it to my holiday book list! Ooh The Lie Tree. Maybe I’ll read it in October for maximum spooky effect! TIMEKEEPERRRRRR ❤ I really really need to give Daughter of the Forest another chance. You always make it sound so amazing!
Haha yeah, whenever you gush about GoT, I tend to keep silent because I know you love it so much 🙂
YES! I hope you like it when you try reading it again.
