So Mary over at Sunshine and Scribblings was a dear and tagged me for the delicious-looking Cookie Book Tag!
Basically, there's supposed to be eight kinds of cookies, and you pick a book that matches each prompt. It will be fun! It will be beautiful! And you will enjoy it immensely!
Chocolate Chip // A book that never gets old
I actually just did a post on how much I love the Wingfeather Saga, but out of all four books in that series, this one is my abiding favorite. It's dangerous, it's heart-wrenching, it's a beautiful story where family is tested and tried and comes out stronger than ever... it's just the greatest, in my opinion, of the four books in the series. Warden and the Wolf King, the fourth one, is pretty great too, but this one... I'll never be able to get over how much I love it.
Dutch Snowballs // A book that gave you an unexpected surprise
Help. I mean... isn't that the point of all plot twists? No? *grumbles, goes off to check Goodreads*
I think as plot twists go, we'll go with Heartless...
I mean, I definitely suspected it was coming, but still... bleck. Sorry to all those who liked this one... I really didn't. Ugh.
But as for a book I didn't think I'd like but ended up loving like crazy:
When I started it, I was basically falling asleep (not to mention my dad was at the hospital and they weren't exactly sure what was wrong with him, so... yeah) and I couldn't focus on it at ALL. It started out so BORING. But then the pace picked up (I love court dramas) and it just got so good. Four stars was the final verdict on this one.
Molasses // A book with a character that gets in a sticky situation
As Mary said... couldn't that be just about any book?
I'm going to go with...
Poor Katniss. She basically redefines the term "sticky situation." Ick. If this isn't a trial, I don't know what is.
Oreo // A book dealing with the light and the darkness
Just so y'all know: this is my favorite kind of book.
I re-read this one a couple of days ago. I REGRET NOTHING.
Sugar // A book with a sugary sweet villainThe best kind.
Monster // A book that confused your emotions
But there are so many of them!!!!
Several of the above books confused me so much: Heartless, Moonblood, Wingfeathers... But the two strongest contenders for this category are:
Obviously, Mockingjay confused me in a bad way and the Girl who Could See confused me in a good way. Someone help. I'm still reeling over the endings of these two.
Snickerdoodle // A book that made you laugh
The banter in this one was just the best, especially between Eanrin and the others. Because you know. Eanrin is just the best as banter goes. It wasn't a funny book, but the dialogue was so snappy and funny that you just can't help yourself.
And this one gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME I READ IT. I think I've read it something like four times now? And yet I still laugh, every time. Someone help.
Peanut Butter // A book with a nutty character
Can I just say the heroine of this book? Winter? She's... something else. I love her so much.
And of course, Howl's Moving Castle, mentioned above. All the characters in that kind of border on insane. It's beautiful. Honestly, I think I could probably put all of Dianna Wynn Jones's books down for this one.
Blue (I don't remember your URL, sorry :P)
No obligation to do the tag, of course, but if you want to and I didn't tag you... please, feel free!
