Hello people of the world!
I’m back again with another tag that I wasn’t tagged in (as usual, lol), but I’d still do that because it seems fun!
I saw this tag on Beth’s Reading Every Night, so I hope you don’t mind that I did this tag~
The Cookie Book Tag
- In addition to linking back to the person who tagged you, it would be awesome if you link back to Nicole’s original post!
- Pick a book that corresponds to the cookie’s ‘theme’.
- Have fun!
- Tag one to three people.
A classic book that you love or really enjoyed
Interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago.
The answer is way to obvious. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. I’m planning to re-read it this summer, who’s reading it with me???
A fandom that you really want to ‘join’ and/or a hyped-up book you want to read
Your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere.
I’m currently in process of joining this fandom, as I’m reading A Darker Shade of Magic in Russian now (of course, with a turtle speed, but still…)
An author you can’t get enough of
Max Frei. I will never get enough of her magical realism. Never mind the fact that I liked her 5th volume of Old Vilnius’ Tales the least, this won’t cancel the fact that the whole concept of magical realism in her books are so precious to me!
An emotional rollercoaster
This cookie was hard…so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you.
Oh, that would be A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. Especially the ending part… I almost threw tables/chairs like this:
A book whose cover was better than the story, or vice versa, where the story was better than the cover
Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. The cover is daaaamn beautiful (also the cover for Shadowsong makes me asking my reading preferences), but the story was so disturbing, I couldn’t even force myself to somehow enjoy the book. But I’m still lowkey looking forward to Shadowsong, hope it’ll be much better than first book.
Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties:
A book that wasn’t what you expected
Good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish.
The Remains of the Day by Kadzuo Ishiguro. It was a pleasant surprise for me. Lots of thoughts. It’s hard for me to describe what kind of book this was, but I loved it.
A book you may never stop re-reading/loving
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. An absolutely stunning blend of fantasy and sci-fi, heavily inspired by Sailormoon manga and anime, which was my first childhood anime ever, and, of course, they’re retellings of popular fairytales, such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Snow White.
Tagging? No, I will, as always, leave it up to your personal choice 🙂
Hooray, another awesome tag done! And I suddenly want to re-read The Lunar Chronicles… Them were so good when I first read it, I think I need even more. ❤
Will try to rant more here, after I finish being so emotionally broken from whatever Produce 101 Season 2 brings tomorrow at its finale haha
Love you all,
