This post is a bit late but better late than never. I got tagged in The Coffee Bean Challenge by Maria. Thank you so much for tagging me. 😀 Go check out Maria’s blog @BigCityBookworm Her blog is one of my favorites. So here is The Coffee Bean Challenge.
Black: A series that’s tough to get into but has a hardcore following
Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice & Fire, #1) By George R.R. Martin
I have to read these books. I think I’ve been scared to read them because of the size of the book. I have also heard the books are a bit slow at first as well. I know the fandom for this show is extremely hardcore and they take the book very seriously. I am a huge fan of the show so I know I’m going to force myself to read them at some point.
Peppermint Mocha: A book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
This was a bit hard for me to pick from because I wasn’t too sure what becomes popular when but I always think about Harry Potter during Christmas. I always find myself thinking about the scene where Mrs. Weasley sends Harry a sweater when he thinks he isn’t getting any gifts.
Hot Chocolate: A children’s book
Trial by Journal by Kate Klise
This is one of my favorite kid’s books. I had to read it for school in about maybe 4th grade or so and it was great. It has drawings in it and is just a fun book. I remember that I liked the book so much I went out and bought other books by the author. This is something I plan on refreshing myself with because it’s super enjoyable.
Double Shot of Espresso: A book that kept you on the edge of your seat
Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight
This book kept me in suspense the whole time. I did not figure out anything until the very end. Kimberly does a great job keeping you guessing. I also enjoyed how we get 3 different narrators. In this book the narrators work very well and they all end up being connected. This is hands down one of my favorite books. I wish I could read this book again without knowing the ending.
Starbucks: A book you see everywhere
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This is a book I’ve been seeing a lot of people talk about. They’re either talking about this or the sequel. There was just something about the cover I really liked so I ended up buying it. It’s on my March TBR list. I’m hoping to start it within the next couple days. I’m very excited. It sounds really interesting.
The Hipster Coffee Shop: A book by an indie author (a shout out)
In the Blood by Lisa Unger
This is a book I really enjoyed that I don’t see people really talk about. It’s another mystery/thriller book. This book kept me guessing a lot of the time. I did feel that you possibly could have predicted the ending but I didn’t. If you’re into mystery/thriller this book is worth a try. I’ve read another book by Lisa Unger but did not like it as much as this one.
Oops I Accidentally Got Decaf: A book you were expecting more from
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
This is one of those books I’ve heard nothing but great things about. It’s been compared to Gone Girl but I just didn’t feel that way about it. I thought the story was interesting but I felt it was very predictable. I figured the killer within some time of reading. Such a shame but not much I can do. I’m still willing to give the movie a chance because I’m a huge fan of books made into movies. Maybe the film will help.
The Perfect Blend: A book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
I have to say the story behind this book is something I don’t agree with. I don’t think it’s ever okay to cheat especially with your best friend’s fiance. However I felt myself rooting for the two of them the whole time. I was a little sad about the end but overall happy.
Green Tea: A book or series that is quietly beautiful
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I rated this low on goodreads but I overall enjoyed the book as a whole. The cover was beautiful. There were so many amazing quotes in this book that I always found myself stopping to write them down. Plus the story is very inspiring. It wasn’t something I would normally read but I’m so glad I gave it a chance.
Chai Tea: A book or series that makes you dream of far away places
13 Little Blue Envelopes (Little Blue Envelope, #1) by Maureen Johnson
This is such a wonderful series. It’s about a girl name Ginny whose recently passed Aunt sends her traveling around Europe to learn more about the person she was. Then in the second book she gets the last letter which got stolen from her and begins another journey to create a piece of art which her Aunt already started. I wish someone sent me on a journey. I love traveling and this sounds like a amazing reason to travel. I can’t wait for more of my own adventures.
Earl Grey: A favorite classic
Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
This was a book I read for school a couple years ago. I remember though I really ended up enjoying it. I don’t really remember too much of the story but I know I liked it enough to buy another one of Arthur’s books. I haven’t read many classics but this was one I actually read all the way through and enjoyed. I just found my copy of it so I’m feeling a reread soon.
