The Chocolate Book Tag

I found this tag via Shelf of Melanie.

  • Dark Chocolate – a book that covers a dark topic
  • White Chocolate – your favourite light-hearted/humorous read

    • Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer – Does this book count? When I think ‘funny’ it’s the first that comes to mind! I wouldn’t say it’s light-hearted, exactly, but I still find the humorous moments in these books humorous.  
  • Milk Chocolate – a book that has a lot of hype that you’re dying to read
    • I’m not currently dying to read anything, but I would like to read The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin, which I saw a lot of in the blogosphere and I noticed it’s up for a GoodReads Choice Award.
  • Chocolate with a Caramel Centre – a book that makes you feel all gooey in the middle while reading
    • I honestly can’t think of a book that makes me feel gooey (this is why memes are so difficult for me, haha, but I liked the chocolate theme of this one)…I don’t read that sort of thing! The closest, perhaps, would be The Lord of the Rings making me feel a sort of nostalgia perhaps?
    • Wafer Free Kit Kat – a book that surprised you recently
      • Burial Rites by Hannah Kent – I saw this one a lot in the blogosphere and never thought I would read it. Something finally changed my mind, though, and I gave it go. I loved it! (Review coming next week)
    • Snickers – a book that you’re going nuts about
      • The Secret History by Donna Tart – I started this last night and I’ve read over 400 pages. It’s totally pulled me in; I can’t wait to read what happens next.
    • Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows – a book you turn to for a comfort read
      • The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien – one of my all time favourite books. I could read it over and over.
    • Box of Chocolate – a series you’ve read that you feel has a little bit of something for everyone
      • Gosh, I haven’t read many series either (see caramel centre above) so it’s difficult to recommend one that has something for everyone. They’re all so genre specific. Possibly the Ashbury-Brookfield books could satisfy the general YA lovers but also those looking for a good mystery or something with a little more depth. I don’t usually love YA but I love these books.
