If Books Were Cake Tag

I sadly don't know who to credit for this one, so my apologies! But I couldn't NOT do the tag because hello, cake and books? They're two of my favorite things! :D

*choosing recent reads, ala 2018-2019*

CHOCOLATE: A dark book that you absolutely loved
The Dragon Republic and its predecessor are both super dark. Wars and villainy and murder and awful characters who do awful things, sometimes for good reasons and sometimes just because they can. They're hard to read, but I LOVE them! Especially the sequel. No second book syndrome here!

VANILLA: A light read
Starry Eyes is SO CUTE. And while it does handle some ~bigger~ stuff, it's really light and about a girl and a boy who rekindle their relationship after it tore apart.

RED VELVET: A book that gave you mixed emotions
A Curse So Dark and Lonely is definitely a good book, and a lot of people have loved it. But, I don't know, it just didn't hit the mark for me. And I was shipping the wrong couple, because the author wove a subtle second love interest in there. (I swear she did, and I don't trust her when she says there's not a love triangle in the sequel). Plus I didn't always care for the direction the story went. So yeah, a lot of mixed emotions on this one!

STRAWBERRY: A sweet book
I'm cheating a bit here because this is a graphic novel. But Heartstopper could almost give you a toothache with how sweet it is. And I LOVED it!

CHEESECAKE: A book that you would recommend to anyone
Red, White and Royal Blue is a damn near-perfect romcom, and I highly recommend it if you love sweeping romances, funny characters, amazing friend groups, and boys who email queer love letters to each other.

COFFEE CAKE: A book that you started but never finished
I never say never with some books, but the last one I set aside and don't know if I'll get back to it was Mistress of Rome. I love books set in Ancient Rome, so it was probably more mood-based at the time, so I'm kind of hoping to pick it up again!

CARROT CAKE: A book with great writing
Blanca y Roja, and every book by Anna-Marie, will always be some of the most beautiful writing to me. She's just so good with words 😭

If you've read any of these books, would you also put them in these categories? Are you a lover of cake? Let's talk! :)

Comments always make me smile. :) Seriously. Even if you comment on the post weeks or months later, it makes my day! So don't hesitate to leave your thoughts even if it's been a long time since the post was published. I'll try to reply to you, especially if you ask a question, but sometimes life happens. But I do read and appreciate every single one of them because I know how hard it can be to find the time or energy to comment. So a heartfelt THANK YOU for brightening my day when you do. <3
