It’s Tag Tuesday time again. This week I’m hitting up the caffeine shots and doing the Coffee Book Tag which I found on Nen and Jen’s Book Blog so huge thanks to them for posting it! I’m not sure on the original tag creator but thank you to whoever you are! 🙂
Coffee is the absolute fuel for my working life – I definitely wouldn’t get through my teaching day without it. When I’m out and about in the summer my favourite thing to order is the Java-Chip Frappuccino from Starbucks (I’ve really been missing those during Lockdown!) otherwise it’s definitely a toffee/caramel latte for me!
Name a series that’s tough to get into, but has hardcore fans.
Game of Thrones – the sheer size of these books and the number of different perspectives always puts me off but I’m determined to get through them.
Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or festive time of the year.
A Christmas Carol, that’s definitely festive right?! Or anything by Charles Dickens really.
Name your favourite children’s book.
There’s a series by Geraldine McCaughrean about a witch called Wizziwig which I loved as a child. Other than that, anything by Roald Dahl – he’s one of my childhood staples!
DOUBLE SHOT ESPRESSO
Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – the way the book is written just kept me flipping page after page dying to find out what was going on.
Name a book you see everywhere.
Recently, Percy Jackson – I really have to read this series… and then watch the movies… and then hopefully the new Disney + series will be out!
THE HIPSTER COFFEE SHOP
Give a book by an indie author a shout-out.
Mark Newman’s Short Stories Anthology: My Fence is Electric: and Other Stories – breathtaking!
Rebecca Crunden: Outlands Pentalogy – gripping, dystopian-edge sci-fi
Amy Kuivalainen: The Immortal City – historical Italian fantasy
OOPS! ACCIDENTALLY GOT DECAF
Name a book you were expecting more from.
The Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo – especially considering how much the series was hyped and how amazing both Six of Crows and Language of Thorns were.
THE PERFECT BLEND
Name a book or series that’s bitter sweet yet satisfying.
One Day by David Nicholls – for me this is such a good way to write a novel with an unhappy ending, I hated it but loved it at the same time!
Have a go if you feel like tagging yourself for some coffee bookish love!
