The Coffee Book Tag

I was tagged to do this a while back by the lovely Jamieson @ Jamishelves. I’m a huge coffee fan, although I tend to like milky, sweetened versions. This tag is great for getting my in the mood for hot drinks in this cold weather.

 

BLACK COFFEE
a series that is tough to get into but has hardcore fans

The Mortal Instruments. I can kind of see the appeal of this series, and the prequels look interesting, but I’ve read the first book, and while it was okay, I didn’t feel the need to continue the series. Both Sarah J. Maas’ series could go here too. I’ve only read ACOTAR and ACOMAf, but  her writing just isn’t for me.

 

PEPPERMINT MOCHA
a book that gets more popular during the festive season

I feel like I always see a lot of Harry Potter around this time of year? I don’t particularly associate the books with Christmas myself, but the movies are always on too, so there’s just a general kind of festive feeling.

HOT CHOCOLATE
a favourite childhood book

The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald. I loved this story as a kid. It had just the right about of danger and magic. I had a battered paperback and a double cassette tape audiobook (I don’t even think they were called audiobooks back then…)

DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO
a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish

Not Even Bones was so fast-paced and so chilling, I was tense the whole time I was reading. 

Not Even Bones

STARBUCKS
a book you see everywhere

I’ve been seeing a lot of hype for The Wicked King and King of Scars but that’s fine with me, because I’m really looking forward to both.

 

THAT HIPSTER COFFEE SHOP
a book by an indie author (shoutout)

I don’t think they’re indie authors, but Alexis Hall (Iron and Velvet duology) and Austin Chant (Peter Darling, Coffee Boy) are both from small publishers and I adore them. 

 

OOPS, I ACCIDENTALLY GOT DECAF
a book you were expecting more from

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Sorry!

Children of Blood and Bone

THE PERFECT BLEND
a book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying.

We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson is so good, and so bittersweet and wonderful.

GREEN TEA
a book or series that is quietly beautiful

I already knew I enjoyed the TV miniseries, but I read Wives and Daughters
by Elizabeth Gaskell for the first time for this years Victober. It’s a wonderful, rich, heartwarming story full of memorable characters.

Wives and Daughters

CHAI LATTE
a book or series that makes you dream of far off places

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. Not just because of the exiting locations, but the whole Grand Tour idea itself. There’s such a spirit of adventure.

The Gentlemans Guide to vice and virtue

EARL GREY
favourite classic

Probably Wuthering Heights or Frankenstein? I’m going to try and read more classics next year, so maybe I’ll expand my horizons a little.

  1. Fun! I love seeing what everyone picks for this kind of tag. I especially love seeing what people pick as their favorite classic! I have no idea what I’d choose for that, though. It varies day-to-day.
