Book Cake Tag!

Tuesday, October 7, 2014




I was tagged by the wonderful Lauren from Always Me to do the Book Cake Tag! (I also stole her picture for it, sorry!) So here we go!

Flour: A book that was a little bit slow to start off but really picked up as it went along.




I'll be the first to admit that Throne of Glass was something of an acquired taste for me. The beginning was a little slow, not to mention a tad bit confusing, but once I got the history and characters memorized, I really enjoyed reading about Celaena, as well as the other characters. I still need to read Crown of Midnight, and I hear even better things about that one! 





Margarine: A book that had a rich, great plot




All books by Rick Riordan have interesting and compelling plots, but I think that that really shines through in the Heros of Olympus series, where we get to see not only the Greek side of Percy's world, but the Roman side, too. In addition to that, we get to meet plenty of other interesting characters and, overall, it's just a great ride of a story.






Eggs: A book you thought was going to be bad but actually turned out quite enjoyable.


 
The only reason I picked this up was because it was a part of the "Banner Challenge" in my GoodReads group. I'm definitely not a big fan of werewolves, but there was something strangely addicting about this book. It wasn't so much the romance between Grace and Sam as it was the biology behind the wolves themselves... and Cole. ;) I was definitely pleasantly surprised.







Sugar: A surgary, sweet book.

 
 
I was introduced to Perkins by a friend of mine and I was so glad I got the book as a birthday present a couple of years back. If you're looking for a light, sweet book full of fluff and romance, you need to look no further. Lola and Isla, the companion novels, are wonderful, too! I love me some St. Clair, Cricket, and Josh!








Icing - A book that covered every single element that you enjoy about a book (funny moments, action moments, sad moments, etc.)





Gosh, there were many books that could've competed for this spot, but - ultimately - I had to go with the one that defined my generation and one that I grew up obsessed with. But, really, do I even have to explain this one? XD







Sprinkles: A book series that you can kind of turn back to for a little pick me up when you're feeling down.
Harry Potter, as well as Warriors, could've competed for this spot, but my all-time favorite anime won out. I love many of the characters, and with romance, wit, and funny scenes, it's definitely a book I can always get a smile from. And, if that doesn't work, I can always turn to my Fruits Basket roleplays I have going. ;)
 





 
 The Cherry on Top - Your favorite book this year so far.
The was my most anticipated book of the year, as well as the favorite so far! At some points, I was too scared to keep reading, for fear of something happening to my favorite characters! But with action, humor, and romance - this book definitely has it all. Not to mention, it was a great conclusion to one of my favorite series!







If I tag you, I'll let you know and don't forget to link back to me so I can see your responses!  If you want to play along even if I didn't tag you, feel free to jump right in and link me as well.

    1. No problem! Be sure to link me back so I can see them!

      And it really did. I liked the first Percy Jackson series, but I definitely feel like Riordan has "aged" the books some, so they're not so strictly children's books anymore. And one of the ways he has is by making the plots a little more complex. Even though, they're all great stories!

      Yay, Fruits Basket buddies! And oh geez. >.< It's hard to pick one! I like Kisa and Hiro together, they're freakin' adorable. And I've always liked Yuki, too. Ayame's fun, too. I'm a snake! ;)

    Don't worry about the picture - I was using the picture from the blogger who tagged me. :)

  6. You do have some great choices! I definitely have to agree with Throne of Glass. It started out slow, but it eventually began to pick up. I have the entire series waiting to be read and just haven't found the time to be able to marathon them just yet. I seriously need to read Cassandra Clare's work as well. I have Clockwork Angel, but I haven't read it yet. Lord books just collect dust on my shelves apparently lol.

    1. I'm just like you. I've had Crown of Midnight stuck on my shelf, gathering dust, for over a year. =/ I'll get to it soon enough, though, and I'm sure you will, too. Lol.

  7. I am so happy that I've found someone else that loves Fruits Basket. I completely agree with it being a pick-me-up, especially the first few books.

  9. Lauren also tagged me for this; I'm about to write my post! I've not read any of these, apart from HP (obviously), but I am v. psyched to read Throne of Glass, Shiver and Anna and the French Kiss. These are all books I really need in my life!

    1. Sweet! I'll have to check out your answers! But I agree, all three of those choices are great books to at least try. =)

  10. I absolutely loved City of Heavenly Fire! I don't think it could have ended any better. It was a mixture of bittersweet and a breath of relief that she ended it the way she did! Awesome list lady. I got tagged to do this post and just haven't had time yet, so I'm looking at every else's! <3

    1. I was a nervous wreck reading City of Heavenly Fire. I was so invested in the books and I was terrified that the characters I loved most would die. But, yes, I think it was a wonderful ending! It's still early to say so, but I think that CoHF will be my all-time favorite read this year. ^-^
