Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Apple Book Tag, which I found on Steph’s blog last month and bookmarked because apples are my favourite fruit, meaning I just had to do this. Onto the post!
GRANNY SMITH: AN OVERBEARINGLY SWEET WORK OR CHARACTER
I genuinely can’t think of anything for this? Like I can think of sweet books, but none I’d describe as overbearingly so.
FUJI: A WORK ABOUT A MOUNTAIN
The first one to jump into my head was Amy McCulloch’s upcoming thriller Breathless, which I’m really looking forward to reading!
RED DELICIOUS: A BOOK THAT WOULD BE PERFECT IF IT WAS ONLY JUDGED BY ITS COVER
The book itself is also pretty perfect, but a cover I am just obsessed with is Lightning Falls! It’s such a gorgeous looking book, and I loved the story within too.
GOLDEN YELLOW: A BOOK WITH YELLOW ON THE COVER
I mean, you can’t get much more yellow than Sleepover Takeover, can you??
MCINTOSH: A WRITER THAT HAS INFLUENCED OR WOULD INFLUENCE YOUR WRITING
I have not written anything in a very long time but when I did I always liked writing mysteries best, so I guess I’d say Robin Stevens, Helen Moss and Lauren St John especially because they’re responsible for my obsession with mystery books.
HONEYCRISP: A BOOK YOU HAVE READ THAT IS IN GREAT DEMAND
God, I don’t know? I feel so lucky to have recieved proofs or advance copies of books I know others are looking forward to, so I guess all of those?
BALDWIN: A WRITER YOU FEEL NEEDS RECOGNITION DUE TO STUNTED ACCLAIM (WHETHER IT WAS DUE TO SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED TO THEM OR A PREMATURE DEATH)
Okay, so the first person who came into my mind was Helen Bailey. She was tragically murdered and I was (and still am) incredibly upset about it because I loved her books so much. Rest in peace, Helen 💜
EMPIRE: A WORK ABOUT OR SET IN NEW YORK
I loved Nightfall in New York, which came out in 2021 and concluded the brilliant Taylor and Rose quartet. I can’t wait to see what Katherine Woodfine writes in the future!
GALA: A WORK THAT FITS UNDER MANY GENRES
A book I read last year that I found really tricky to categorise was Following Frankenstein, because it has so many different elements to it.
AMBROSIA: A LONG WORK THAT WAS EASY TO FOLLOW
I think I have to go for A Single Thread of Moonlight here! It’s pretty chunky but just such a joy that I blasted through it really quickly, especially since I started it in a hospital waiting room.
JAZZ: A WORK WRITTEN IN OR AFTER 2010 THAT DEMONSTRATES FRESHNESS AND ORIGINALITY
I’m pretty sure Dead Man’s Cove was written in 2010 exactly! One of my very favourite mystery books 😊
MUTSU: A BIG BOOK THAT YOU INDULGED IN
I’ll go for the longest book I’ve read recently, which is Beyond the Mountains. Such a great sequel to the Shadow Moth, I’m dying for book 3!!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE APPLE?
Pink ladies, so I’m actually quite upset they aren’t in this tag!! Justice for pink ladies!!
Thank you so much for reading! What’s your favourite kind of apples? Do you have any thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned here? I’d love to chat with you in the comments!
