The Coffee Book Tag

Good morning bookworms!
A few weeks ago I was tagged by the delightful JR Lynn @ Eternity Books to do the Coffee Book Tag. You should definitely go check out her blog – it’s super cuuuuute! Also, this tag gives me super conflicting feels because:

  2. I’m not allowed to drink coffee any more ?

WHY??? The universe is conspiring against me… Ha! (Actually, it’s about my health and not eating/drinking things that cause hypersensitive gastrocolic reflex – which is a really fancy way of saying it causes my bowel disease to go have a mini flare and I hate my life for a couple of hours/days.)
Now that I’ve divulged unnecessary content, let’s get to the BOOKS part of the post! ?

Black Coffee | Name A Series That’s Tough To Get Into But Has Hardcore Fans:

Uhhh, the Grishaverse by Leigh Bardugo. I still haven’t finished reading the first 3 books (mostly Shadow and Bone). But I need to because I LOVED Six of Crows. And I want to be a diehard Grishaverse fan. (Also, I promised Sofii I would read them and I haven’t forgotten!!)

Peppermint Mocha | Name A Book That Gets More Popular During the Winter or A Festive Time of Year:

There’s probably a lot, but every November I see all of the TBRs stacked with The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. The first line (appropriately), is:

It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.

If that isn’t an introductory line to put this book on your November TBR, then I don’t know what is.

Hot Chocolate | What Is Your Favorite Children’s Book?

The book I buy for all our nieces and nephews is Guess How much I Love You by Sam McBratney, but if we’re talking about a book that I love… I guess it would be George and Matilda Mouse and the Floating School by Heather S. Buchanan (see? I was a nerd Ravenclaw even when I was 4).

Double Shot of Espresso | Name A Book That Kept You On the Edge Of Your Seat From Start to Finish:

The entire All For the Game trilogy by Nora Sakavic. I read all three books (The Foxhole Court, The Raven King and The King’s Men) in under of 48 hours.

Starbucks | Name A Book You See Everywhere:

At the moment, it’s Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. That’s not a bad thing though. I’m going to the first book launch for it this coming Tuesday!! (Yes, that is prior to release.)

The Hipster Coffee Shop | Give A Book By An Indie Author A Shout Out:

I’m doing TWO because I can, and you can’t stop me.

  1. If you like supernatural stuff, go read Marked For the Hunt by Leah Chiasson
  2. If you like epic fantasy, go read The Sons of Thestian by M. E. Vaughan
Oops! I Accidentally Ordered Decaf | Name A Book You Were Expecting More Of:

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren. I was expecting this epic love story that was going to break my heart into a million pieces … and it just … didn’t?

The Perfect Blend | Name A Book Or Series That Was Both Bitter And Sweet, But Ultimately Satisfying:

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. It had this amazing bittersweet and innocuous ending… but I loved it.

Green Tea | Name A Book Or Series That Is Quietly Beautiful:

Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi. I will never shut up about this book. I loved it and all its introvertedness. I love Penny and Sam’s relationship. This book is perfect in about 16,000 ways.

Chai Tea | Name a Book Or Place Series That Makes You Dream Of Far Off Places:

I mean, I live in Australia, so basically everything is a ‘far off place’. But probably The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. They make me want to go visit more of Wales and find ley lines and then discover Cabeswater and make magic.

Earl Grey | Name Your Favorite Classic:

It’s been so long since I read a classic… but probably The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. I love that it doesn’t have a happy ending (although I was traumatised by the original version when I was a smol child).
