I was tagged by Morgan at the Bookish Beagle to do the Book Cake Tag! I thought it was such a brilliant idea! I was introduced to the Great British Bake Off from my friends, Morgan among them, and was quickly in love! It made me SO hungry and also made me want to bake all the things!! Unfortunately I haven’t watched that many episodes of it yet because they got taken off of Netflix for awhile but I think they’re back on now? Anyway, I need to get back to watching them!
Self Rising Flour- book that is slow to start off but really picked up as you went along
The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner definitely had a slow start but quickly picked up pace! A lot of action, twists and turns happen in the second half of the book!
Butter or Margarine- a book that had really rich and great plot
The Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson had an AMAZING plot — so intricate with details from the first book woven into plot lines in the third book. It blew my mind. I love it when things tie in throughout three books and there are twists and turns and all of a sudden something happens and you’re just like oh. my. god.
Eggs- a book you thought would be bad but actually turned out to be quite enjoyable
Hmmm I typically don’t actually read books I really do think will be bad. However, maybe some books could have been bad and turned out I enjoyed them quite a bit! With that as a premise, I’d say The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I got a little burned out with dystopia for awhile and this one could have been really cliche with overdone tropes and been unoriginal but I really liked it a lot! Such great characters and action packed — I think I read it in almost one sitting! I really need to finish out this series now!
I read the Lara Jean series by Jenny Han for the first time this year and binged the entire thing! I loved it! Such a sweet romance and love all the family aspects and the baking! Perfect fit for this book tag 😉
Chocolate/Fruit Filling Layer- a book that surprised you or a character that has hidden layers
Hmm, I’m going to say Froi from the Lumatere Chronicles — not that the book surprised me so much as Froi has one of the best character arcs I’ve ever read! So many layers and complexities. Love it.
Timekeeper by Tara Sim is such a fantastic slow burn romance! It’s such a delightful OTP that I love!
