The (Birthday) Cake Book Tag!

Top Ten Tuesday

This is actually just The Cake Book Tag but I figured since today is my birthday it’d be the perfect tag to do so I just snuck birthday in with the cake!

Thank you to Lauren @ Comma Hangover for tagging me, be sure to head over and check out her answers as well!

A dark book you absolutely love

“The Hollow Girl” was very dark and graphic but I loved it, the character overcame so much and was so strong. Lots of magic, revenge, and suspense!

A light read

This is a very light-hearted, adorable book and quick to finish plus it’s full of diversity! The romances and friendships are all very positive as well, and who doesn’t want to read a book full of geek culture?

A book that gave you mixed emotions

I’m going to interpret this in a way of “feeling many different emotions” and not the sort of mixed emotions that means I both loved and hated it.

I honestly haven’t cried while reading a book in a long time but I full blown ugly cried when I read this book! I won’t tell you why but…it broke me! I also raged, laughed, and cried some more! Overall this book sent me on an emotional roller coaster ride. (I loved it though).

A book you would recommend to anyone

So many! But….

I definitely recommend “Stormdancer” I ton though just because it compiled so many awesome elements into one book: mythology, world-building, steampunk, talking mythological creatures, badass protagonist, no central romance, and so on! Plus I think Jay Kristoff really has a beautiful way of writing, I adore it.

A book you started but never finished

I only bought this because a lot of my friends recommended it and were all in love with it. I read maybe 2 chapters? Wasn’t feeling it and set it aside and have yet to pick it back up again. I don’t know if I ever will either, I feel like paranormal romances aren’t my thing.

A book with great writing

I just have to say Laini Taylor is also a fantastically, gorgeous writer but I have to say Jessica Khoury’s in “The Forbidden Wish” as well. Such lyrical, beautiful writing it had me swooning practically!

A book that left you wanting more

I NEED this book to have a sequel or spin off, I know it won’t happen but I still need it! I loved the way retellings were woven in with a separate plot line, I adored the characters, and the world building too!

A series with 4+ Book

Harry Potter? Can I use that? I don’t really read a lot of series since I’m terrible at finish them but great at starting them!

A book that wasn’t what you anticipated

I am not one for romance-y or contemporary books, they just aren’t my cup of tea. However, I was really surprised by how much I ended up loving this book the writing had an addictive quality to it and I could not stop reading! Is it the best book ever? No. But damn was it entertaining.

      Thank you! It really is a fun tag too, who doesn’t love cake?
      I hope you enjoy The Hollow Girl when it’s released, it was fantastic! 🙂

    Great answers! The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was on my TBR for a while too but it’s since fell off and I don’t think that it will ever really get back on! Harry Potter is totally my answer for the Cupcake question, but I use it so often that I feel like I am repeating myself.

      THANK YOU!

      I’m kind of feeling the same way about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, I don’t know if I’ll ever really finish it :/

      I don’t have too many other series that are 4+ books so my default is Harry Potter or Percy Jackson! I feel like I’m repeating myself too but they’re both such good series! 🙂

    Happy Birthdayyyy!!! 😀 I have to say I haven’t read any of these books (minus Harry Potter of course). I’m sure they’re all wonderful books, and maybe I’ll get to some of them! 🙂

      Thank you Meghan!
      Hope you enjoy some of these when you get to them, of course I wouldn’t have picked them unless I though they were good enough to recommend! 🙂

      Thank you Ashley and I don’t think you can ever go wrong with Harry Potter either! It’s so easy to use that as the default answer! 🙂

    Happy belated birthday, Heather 🌸 I hope you had an amazing day and that it was filled with loads and loads of reading and books!
    The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was really good; I’ve only read the first book but I really enjoyed it. It definitely gets better and a bit more creepy as the story progresses.

      Thank you Michelle! It definitely was a great day!
      That’s good to hear about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer because I’m just not sure about that one but if it gets creepier I might continue with it eventually! 🙂
