I snagged this tasty, over-indulgent book from over at Flying Paperbacks book blog. It was so yummy that I couldn’t resist!
I’m excited to reach out to something a little crazy for my book tag of the month. Books and food. Is there a better combination?
Chocolate covered Pretzels- A book couple you thought would never work together.
Maybe this comes from a place where I dislike chocolate covered pretzels, and I do, but I’m a good portion through the Red Queen Quartet by Victoria Aveyard. There are so many who favor Maven and Mare and I don’t get it. Not one bit. I even felt the same about Cal and Mare, but as the story went on and tortured me, the more I liked them. I haven’t reached the end yet, but I can’t imagine it ends well. Don’t spoil it for me! LOL.
Prungales (at first I didn’t know what this was… it’s a trademarked name… I see what you did there…)- An addictive book you can’t get enough of.
I kid you not, The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine, which I’m on my fourth round in rereading, is just so good! It’s actually a part of my New Year’s Resolution and I haven’t reviewed them until now.
The series is jam-packed with humor, wit, sarcasm, action or the “oh god, oh god, am I going to die?” variety, ride or die friendship, crazy family, and of course, murderous vampires. I legit couldn’t only read the first one. I had to have them all.
Trail Mix- A book with a variety of characters
This one was tricky. First of all, I’m hit or miss when it comes to trail mix. Sometimes I like it and sometimes I’m only in it for the M&Ms and Cheetos.
A book that has a trail mix? I have to go with American Gods by Neil Gaiman for right now. New Gods, Old Gods, Gods of Norse, Gods of Egypt, Gods of Africa. The incredible surplus of gods is mind-blowing and culturally immersive. I loved it!
Fruit Bowls- An unpredictable character.
Legend of Caraval by Stephanie Garber has to be the most unpredictable character I’ve come across yet. Mysterious and mischievous, you never know if he’s good or evil. One of the main prospects of the book is wondering who he is and how he has such powerful magic. He’s enticing and alluring.
Nut Bar- Your go-to book.
So, if you haven’t discovered it yet, Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klaus the go-too book. Now, I’m doing a reread this year, sure, but this book is one I read every July. It never gets old. The imagery is gorgeous and I get lost in the coming-of-age story every time. Just beautiful through and through. Granted, I won’t consider it a nut bar. More of a Twix Bar I feel.
Popcorn- A character you can’t help but like.
Going outside my go-to character because of course, they’re likable. A character that took a little work or possibly none at all is Daemon Black of the LUX series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Arrogant and eye-roll worthy I was won over and melted like butter over fresh popcorn as I got sucked into the black hole of this series. Bad boy that sticks his nose in places he shouldn’t and really tests your boundaries AKA trouble.
Who do I tag for this delicious tag? If you feel nibbly then go for it!
More to come soon…
Thoughts? Have a favorite snack? Personally, I love tortilla chips and queso after midnight. Let’s chat in the comments below!
