Tag Thursday: The Pick ‘n’ Mix Book Tag!


Hello again,
This is the answerphone automatically posting… well, not answerphone, but still, a scheduled post here.

Here we are again with another Tag Thursday! I was, once again, tagged by Rosie @rosiefrecklereads, and this time it is…

The Pick ‘n’ Mix Book Tag

1. Fizzy Blue Bottles.

They look strange, and they taste strange, but you like them. Name a book or series with a really strange plot that you couldn’t help but love.

I think that would be The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro, although it’s hard for me to explain the strange part of its plot.

2. The Metre.

It goes on forever. Name the longest book series you have read.

Well, now that’s really easy. Harry Potter.

3. Chocolate Raisins.

No amount of chocolate can hide what’s inside. Name a book with a great cover but a disappointing story.

I can’t think of any atm. Maybe Stardust by Neil Gaiman? I honestly love the movie version more than a book.

4. Chocolate Mice.

They look sweet, but they’re secretly vermin. Name a book that surprised you with it’s villain. (Be careful not to give spoilers!)

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Seriously, I think Potterverse never deserved this kind of plot in the first place (and I ain’t sorry for saying so).

5. Hard Gums.

You take a bite but almost break your teeth. What book or series was hard for you to get into?

Any Dostoyevsky book.

6. Cola Bottles.

Some are sweet, some are sour. Name two similar books, one you liked and one you didn’t.

Liked – The Hunger Games
Disliked – Divergent

To be honest, I haven’t even read Divergent. But I saw the first and the second movie, and it was so mediocre… A very bad mix of THG and Inception.

7. Fried Eggs.

Some love them, some hate them. Name a book that matches the way you feel about Fried Eggs.

I love fried eggs, so let’s pick Caraval by Stephanie Garber.

8. Smarties.

No matter what you do, they’re everywhere. Name a trend or trope you are tired of reading.
Any book that is similar to The Fault in Our Stars a.k.a. books with unrealistic situations/visions/performance. Don’t use diversity/fantasy/sci-fi/whatever boom effect you want just to make your book seem like throwing colorful confetti, when in fact it’s nothing but colorless pieces of shredded paper I wish your book was instead.
I’m not even sorry for being so straightforward. Please do not take it as if I’m calling you a bad writer, just… don’t be so delusional when writing a book.

9. Gummy Bears.

Name your favourite fictional creature or animal.

Bowtruckle and Hippogriff for me, please!

10. Pick ‘n’ Mix! 

So many sweets, so much variety. Name some of your favourite diverse books!

I haven’t actually read much of diversity books (but I’m planning this year!), so this question will be left without answer.


So that’s it! Honestly, I can’t even remember half of those books I’ve read over these years! Sometimes I look at the titles of books read back in 2007, and I can’t even remember what they were about! Does anyone having the same problem?

I’m waaaay too lazy to tag specific bloggers, so if you feel like doing it – just don’t forget to leave your link here in the comments section so I can read your answers!

Will be back soon,

Make sure to find me on InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Goodreads.

  1. I thought I was the only person who thought Stardust was better as a movie! I read the book after watching the movie expecting to like it more, but I ended up disappointed 😦
    Great post!
