It’s 2020 everyone …. !!!!! And it’s time for the first tag of the year. So, I thought why not start with something that’s one of my most favorite everyday item – COFFEE 🙂 I love my daily morning dose of caffeine and I can’t imagine starting my day without it. So, I hope this tag will bring a fresh new beginning to my blog this year. I saw this tag a long time ago on Lauren’s blog @ Lala’s Book Reviews and I knew I had to do it someday, and I’m glad it’s finally here.
Black coffee: A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans:
I have found it not easy to get into the Mistborn trilogy but it’s definitely one of the most talked about series in booktube or the r/fantasy community on Reddit. And hopefully, I’ll finally be able to get to it this year.
Peppermint mocha: A book that gets more popular during winter or a festive time of year:
I’m not sure but I think many people love rereading HP during the winter. I know I used to. And that’s probably one reason they seem to release the illustrated editions of the books just before the holidays. But I haven’t reread them in a while, and I don’t know if I will anytime soon.
Hot Chocolate: Your favorite children’s book:
I don’t think I’ve read all of these but I loved all of the Famous Five books I read in my childhood and they, along with Sherlock Holmes started my obsession for fictional detectives.
Double shot of espresso: A book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish:
Wow I can’t describe how tense and edge of the seat I was while reading Jade City. The build up and tension in it is just brilliant.
Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere:
I have been seeing this book everywhere for almost a few months now and I’m very excited to read it, hopefully soon.
The hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shout-out:
I actually don’t keep track of the publishers of the books I’m reading, so I really don’t have an answer for this.
Oops! I accidentally ordered decaf: Name a book that you expected more from:
I always expect a lot from Christina Lauren’s books because they have given me some amazing ones before, but the least I know I will get from them is some joy and laughs and banter. Twice in a Blue Moon just didn’t have much of any of these elements and that disappointed me a lot.
The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying:
I binge read the complete Bone Witch trilogy last year and it was definitely one of my most satisfying reads of 2019, and that ending was both amazing and bittersweet and made me cry a lot.
Chai Tea: Name a book or series that makes you dream of far off places:
This might come as a surprise but all the books in Steve Berry’s Cotton Malone series make me dream of far off places because the action in these books moves between lots of countries very effortlessly, and the locations (particularly the historical palaces and museums) are described beautifully.
Earl Grey: Name your favorite classic:
I love my two favorite Jane Austen novels and recently some Agatha Chritie, but my most memorable will always be The Hound of Baskervilles.
