The Cake Book Tag


I have been so, so, so busy lately, even now, I am guiltily taking a break from my work to post this.  Luckily my reading hasn’t been falling too far behind, I managed to start & finish The Library of Unrequited Love just this morning and while not a book, I did finally get around to watching the movie of Me & Earl & the Dying Girl. But more on my recent reads on Wednesday, for now I thought it would be fun to do a quick book tag. This one comes from Marianna’s Corner.

1.Chocolate Cake (A Dark Book You Absolutely Love)

 I’m not too sure about this topic as I wouldn’t say I read too many ‘dark’ books. Possibly Miss Peregrine’s or The Lovely Bones, although I wouldn’t say that I love the latter as much as I am deeply disturbed by it.

2.Vanilla Cake (A Light Read)

Recently I finished Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist which was a light, cute read that still had enough substance to keep me engaged. A great holiday novel.

3.Red Velvet (A Book That Gave You Mixed Emotions)

Playlist for the Dead by Michelle Falkoff. This book was just so anticlimactic, I was expecting a huge revelation or at least something interesting but in the end I felt that the story really had no purpose. It wasn’t terrible, just sort of ‘meh’.

4.Cheesecake (A Book You Would Recommend to Anyone)

Beautiful Mess by Claire Christian or Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley, both of which are AMAZING books- you should all read them :). In terms of a series, Ruby Redfort or Geek Girl.

5.Coffee Cake (A Book You Started But Never Finished)

806 by Cynthia Weil, an interesting concept that wasn’t executed to the standard that I was hoping for resulted in me DNFing this book.

6.Carrot Cake (A Book With Great Writing)

Either Sister Heart by Sally Morgan, Moonrise by Sarah Crossan and The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace. All of these are written in verse which probably says something about my reading preferences.

7.Tiramisu (A Book That Left You Wanting More)

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice & Virtue, I loved this book so much and somehow, despite the fact this it was quite long, I was still left wanting more. I’m hoping to read The Lady’s Guide as soon as possible.

    I read a lot of books that are dark. Books that have to do with war crimes and revolutions. There are inspiring parts, but there is also a view into the dark side of humanity. My top 3 books I read last year were:
    1. Avengers of the New World by Laurent DuBois (About the Haitian Revolution)
    2. The Key to My Neighbor’s House by Elizabeth Neuffer (Civil war and war crimes tribunals in Bosnia and Rwanda)
    3. The Return by Hisham Matar (About returning from exile to post-revolution Libya, and searching for answers about his imprisoned father)

    I read fiction as well and not all dark books like this, but I’ve been connecting lately with these human stories and parts of history that are less well-known.
