Coffee Tag

March 20, 2016

coffeeBooks and coffee… what’s not to like? I couldn’t ignore this tag, so, with coffee by my side and books around me, I took my laptop and wrote the titles which would go well with that perfect cup of coffee. Enjoy!

  1. Black: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

The Lord of The Rings, I guess. I heard so many great things about this series, we even had classes where we spoke about these books and I’d love to uncover their secrets on my own, but… the time hasn’t come yet.

  1. Peppermint mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.

A Christmas Carol (Romanian review). At least that’s what I feel like reading (or watching) at some point in December.

  1. Hot chocolate: What is your favourite children’s book?

My answer would have been completely different last year, but I’ll choose A Monster Calls right now. I love it and I recommend it!

  1. Double shot of espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

The Shining by Stephen King. I can’t really say why, but I couldn’t put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen next.

  1. Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere.

The books from The Lunar Chronicles. I want to read the series, but I’ve seen it appear on tumblr and youtube so many times, that I’m afraid I will be disappointed in it.

  1. That hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shout out.

Devika’s book, When I See Your Face. Although, to be honest, I’ve no idea if she’s an indie author.

  1. Oops! I accidentally got decaf: Name a book you were expecting more from.

The Fault in Our Stars. The first half bored me and I was expecting much more from a novel that was so praised. I suppose I wanted too much from it. I’ll write about the book at some point, though. I see why it is loved.

  1. The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.

The only one I’m truly interested in: Harry Potter. Maybe The Chronicles of Narnia too, but I haven’t finished that one. So many questions about book series… oh well, maybe I’ll start reading one in the near future. Maybe.

    Awesome post, I have to agree with a lot of your choices. And THANK YOU for the shout-out. I self-publish all my books, so I can indeed be called an ‘indie author’. :-)

    I feel the need to put my answers in this. It is calling upon me.

    1. The Hunger Games and Game Of Thrones. I’ve seen The Hunger Games movies (which focus at some point on the romance and… no), but I haven’t watched Game of Thrones. Reading the books of both would be so interesting… some day.

    2. The Grinch. It is always so popular everywhere here in America.

    3. Hmmm… this is tough. I would say, The Little Mermaid, when I was very very young.

    4. Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. It is a perfect, psychological thriller mistery. It is a must read if you want to meet face to face with your worst fears.

    5. Twilight, Fifty Shades of Grey and The Fault In Our Stars. -groans-

    6. Lines We Forget by J.E. Warren. She just published, and I know great things are to come for her.

    7. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullens. I was expecting a high introspective for me as a reader, but am lost half the book in and I am still uniterested. This is the first, published book I stop reading alltogether and won’t pick back up.

    8. I’ve mentioned The Legend of Drizzt before, and I mention it now. The rawness and beauty of each character’s humanity in it. Also, The Pendergast Chronicles by Preston Scott and Lincoln Child. Those are books that one must definitely pay attention to. I will find all of Preston and Lincoln’s books, and I will read them until my eyes cry blood.

      I’m so happy you replied, Noexis! 😀 My “to be read” list gets longer with each answer I get.
