Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s Book Tag

I’ve been gone for a minute. It was a busy week for me, but I’m back with a book tag! 😀 I was tagged for this by the awesome Orang-utan Librarian earlier this year. See, I’m catching up on these tags.

The tag was originally created by Aimal at Bookshelves & Paperbacks whose evil plan is to make everyone crave ice cream!! Lol, kidding. But by the time I was done answering these questions, I craved ice cream. It’s hard to read the names of the flavors and not want to try them, so I shall make a trip to an ice-cream parlor soon. Good one, Aimal!

Pick a light, fluffy contemporary

Yeeaaa…I don’t read many light, fluffy contemporaries so I’ll go with my go-to answer for these questions, which is

Anna and the French Kiss

mint-chocolate-cookie

Mint Chocolate Cookie

A new release that you wish everybody would read.

Anna and the Swallow Man

It’s such a wonderful book. It’s a young-adult historical fiction novel set during World War II and is about how young Anna survives the war with the help of the mysterious Swallow Man. I recommend it to everyone. Such a wonderful, emotional, compassionate read.

Cherry Garcia

An ending that was bittersweet.

The Blood of Olympus

I’ll go with the ending of the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. I wasn’t crazy about it because Leo is my favorite character and I’m not sure what becomes of him. It seems like a cliffhanger to me.

Strawberry Shortcake

A book containing your OTP of OTPs.

I don’t care much about OTPs and such so I’ll skip this.

milk-and-cookies

Milk & Cookies

Two authors who, if they collaborated, would go perfectly together.

I hardly ever think of author pairings but if it were possible, I would have liked to read a book written by Erin Morgenstern and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I’ve only read one book by each author but while reading Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, I kept thinking of One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Marquez is more descriptive and the plot in The Night Circus (I’m currently reading it) is more linear than the plot in One Hundred Years of Solitude, but I can’t help thinking of them together. Maybe it’s the atmosphere of the stories that makes me think of them together. They are both mystical and sometimes the reality in both books are fluid, dreamy.

boston-cream-pie

Boston Cream Pie

A book that had you turning your pages late into the night.

Most recently, that was The Night Circus. The tension kept building and building and I know that eventually it will break and the circus might fall apart so I’ve switched to The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater for now.

chocolate-therapy

Chocolate Therapy

A book that makes you feel better after a long day of life.

Eat, Pray, Love

Lol at “a long day of life.” Harry Potter books 1 and 4 always cheer me up and so too Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love.

coffee-coffee-buzz

Coffee, Coffee, Buzzbuzzbuzz!

A book not yet released that you can’t wait to get your hands on.

Hidden Bodies

A couple weeks ago, the answer to this question was Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. But now I possess it but haven’t started reading it for some reason. Today, the answer is Hidden Bodies by Carolyn Kepnes, the sequel to You. I can’t wait to get that book. I might start reading it as soon as I get it.

I hex these bloggers to crave ice cream (if they enjoy eating it):

My Tiny Obsessions

…and everyone who loves ice cream! 😛
