Welcome back to Tiggity Tag Friday! Where I pick a book tag, give credit where it’s due and ignore the rest of the rules! If you feel like participating in this tag, you’re officially tagged 😛 You should definitely link me to where you’ve done this tag or any other tag! Feel free to even play along in the comments!
Photos of the books will be attached to each of the questions, and I will link all of the mentioned books back to Goodreads if something peaks your interest.
The book tag I’ve chosen this week is the ‘Book Cake Tag’ created by sunddenlylorna over on YouTube. So definitely go check her out!
- Give credit to the creator of the tag! (sunddenlylorna)
- Find the ingredients for your cake. (Just kiddding! They’re below :P)
- Find a book that matches each ingredient!
1. FLOUR: A book that was really slow to start but picked up as it went along.
This one I have a particular book in mind and that particular book is, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. However great the book may be by the end (pretty great) the journey along the way took some time before it finally kicked into gear. Me personally, I prefer when books start with action-adventure and finish there too!
2. MARGARINE: A book that has a really rich and great plot.
I’m going to go with the series I’m currently reading at the moment and that’s the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco. I think it’s incredible how each book is so very different but ties together so very well. It’s truly remarkable.
3. EGGS: A book that you thought was going to be bad, but turned out to be quite enjoyable.
I think I’ve mentioned this before. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is an incredible novel and the author Mackenzi Lee is so very talented. However, I originally thought the book was going to be awful, despite the good praise it receives. I was wrong and I can’t be more grateful on that fact. It’s now a favourite of mine!
4. SUGAR: A sugary/sweet book.
Anna Perkin’s wrote Anna and the French Kiss, and it’s the most adorable contemporary book and series I have ever read. All books focus on different people and different love stories but somehow they still all know one another. It’s cute and unique. You should read it!
5. ICING: A book covering every element you enjoy.
Okay. So a book has to have an adventure and/or action. A ton of humour. A pile of kickass characters — the gender is irrelevant and an interweaving plot. So, books that cover all of the elements include, Throne of Glass, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Vampire Academy, Stalking Jack the Ripper, Daughter of the Pirate King, Akarnae and so many others. So, I’m not going to pick one, I’m going to pick those ones, haha.
6. SPRINKLES: A book series you can turn to for a little pick me up when you’re feeling down.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It’s cute. It’s funny. It’s everything you want from a contemporary. It’s hands down my favourite contemporary.
7. CHERRY ON TOP: Favourite book of the year so far.
The Unexpected Everything. I just fell in love with the love interest and the story and I loved everything about it. It was unique and fun and it made me laugh and cry. So both of that’s my choice!
