I’m slacking off at work, and the office ninja is back! Sneaking a few blog posts here and there in the entire 9-hours of corporate work. Anyway, as promised, I will be doing a tag for my next entry!
Here we go, folks! May I present, THE COFFEE BOOK TAG! Again, no one tagged me, I just decided to do it on a whim. (*a cry for other book bloggers to tag me in bookish tags!) Just kidding!
Before I officially begin, let me just put it out there that I don’t drink coffee. Weird part (as if it’s not known to mankind or to the entire book community how peculiar I can be), I only drink coffee when I’m sick. Let’s not dwell on it any longer, thank you very much.
1. BLACK: A series that’s tough to get into, but has hardcore fans
Okayyy, I know. It’s very unusual for someone to think of this series in such way that I just did. It’s good, I’m sure, I’ve seen the movie adaptations and tried reading the first installment BUT I just can’t seem to get into this book. Probably because I’m not a big fan of Fantasy books.
2. PEPPERMINT MOCHA: Book that gets more popular during winter or festive time of the yearI am such a fan of Stephanie Perkins, and for this question, I was supposed to go with Isla & the Happily Ever After but decided this would be a better choice instead. To anyone who’s looking for a good read on winter, or a book to snuggle up with on Christmas eve, this is your go-to, right here.
3. HOT CHOCOLATE: Your favorite children’s book
This is more of a middle-grade book, and it’s been my favorite since I read it back when I was in first year high school. For me, this is one of the best takes on the trope “smart girl falling for the school heartbreaker”.
4. DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO: Book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish
I have always loved me some good mystery. Definitely had me reading until 2 am in the morning, and neglecting my college thesis duties. I marathon-ed this entire series in about a week.
5. STARBUCKS: A book you see everywhere
Damn. This book, I haven’t read it, but I’ve been meaning to for the longest time now. This is such a sad book, based from its premise and the controversy surrounding it. I don’t think I’m quite ready for that kind of an emotional read. Hopefully before 2016 ends, I’ve already devoured this one.
6. THAT HIPSTER COFFEE SHOP: Give a book by an indie author, a shout out
This is a cute book, I loved it. Though its the typical naive girl being the “princess” of handsome, rich boys. As far as I remember, this is only available in ePub version. This was one of my first ebooks in my collection.
7. OOPS! I ACCIDENTALLY GOT DECAF: Book you’re expecting more from
If you’ve read my review, you’ll understand why I chose this. It’s definitely a good book, but it’s quite mild for my taste. It lacks the suspense that’s supposed to be evident in psychological thriller themed books/movies.
8. THE PERFECT BLEND: Book/Series that was both bitter & sweet but ultimately satisfying
My ultimate YA dystopia go-to book! It’s not cliche, nor mainstream. How it was stitched together, was just perfect. It was both expected, and yet you couldn’t help but hope for the opposite; in the tiniest piece of your vulnerable heart, you whisper a wish that the end will be a heartwarming one.
Done! That was quite fun, to be honest, I tend to think hard about my lists ALL THE TIME. It takes me hours before I finalize my pick, and at the last minute, more often than not, I will change my mind! #fickleminded #indecisive
Will be back soon for more bookish inducing posts! Stay tuned, fellow book lovers!
