Today, to celebrate World Chocolate Day, I’m going to be doing the Chocolate Book Tag, which was created by Faye. Onto the post!
1. Dark Chocolate — A book that covers a dark topic (abuse, domestic violence, rape, lonlieness, bullying, death, etc)
The Summer of Telling Tales, which sees two sisters, their mum and their dog escaping a horrifically abusive household and attempting to start a new life, was one of my favourite reads of last year. It was heartbreaking, and I cried all the way through.
2. White Chocolate — Your favourite light-hearted/humourous read
I think everyone who’s read this blog before knows the answer, and I’ll be talking about it in a few questions time anyway, so instead I’ll mention some recent favourite funny reads: Noah Could Never, It’s a Wrap and Theatrical.
3. Milk Chocolate — A book that has a lot of hype that you’re dying to read.
I’ve heard lots of amazing things about Catherine Doyle’s the Storm Keeper’s Island, and I’m really looking forward to reading it at some point. It sounds like something I’ll probably enjoy quite a bit!
4. Chocolate with a caramel centre- Name a book that made you feel all gooey in the middle while you were reading it
The One Hundred and Dalmatians, because aogs trying to save their pups from death at the hands of a horrid villain is an adorable concept, and while it’s suspenseful in places, it’s quite relaxing at the same time. It also features a charming golden retriever, and my heart melts every time I read that bit.
5. Snickers — A book that you are going nuts about
I just read the Elsewhere Emporium, and I thought it was amazing. I’ll be reviewing it in my July reviews post next month, and I’m super excited to write it already. I thought it was even better than the first book; a perfect follow up that would also be an engrossing, exciting read for someone who’d never heard of the Nowhere Emporium before.
6. Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows- What book would you turn to for a comfort read?
Geek Girl, always. No matter how down I am, no matter whether I read the full series or a couple of pages, it always lifts my mood.
7. Box of chocolates — What series have you read that you feel has a wide variety and a little something for everyone?
I had to think REALLY hard on what I could pick for this one, but I’ve decided on the 39 Clues books. I really wish more people would read them because they’re brilliant and they do pack a lot in. There’s intriguing mystery, exciting action, well developed characters with interesting backstories and the opportunity to learn about some historical figures.
