Well, seeing that today marks only one week after Halloween, this post comes right in time. Hopefully, if you went trick or treating, you still have a sizable stash of candy. If all of you’re candy is already gone, I’m a little bit worried for you.
The Candy Book Tag is a new book blog tag started by Samantha @ Bookish Serendipity. These questions look like they are going to be so much fun to answer.
But First the Rules
- If you want to participate, write your post, using the seven candies listed above. You can use the badge I made, or create your own.
- Tag approx. 5 other bloggers.
- Let them know, and ask if they want to participate?
And Now for the Questions
Which Books Remind You Of…
Apples: Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.
A Wrinkle Time by Madeleine L’Engle: I know that this book is loved by many people and that it’s won quite a few awards, but it just wasn’t for me.
Milk Chocolate: This is the book that you’d recommend to absolutely EVERYONE.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee: I can’t believe I have to answer this question. I’ve read so many good books that I can’t possibly do them all justice, so I’ll have to answer with this classic. This book is timeless and the themes are expressed in a riveting story that will keep readers thinking about it long after they close the pages.
Black Jellybeans: WHY DO THESE EXIST?
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely LOVE this series. It’s just that it causes me so much pain that I don’t have Fairest and Winter yet. Why do they exist now? Why can’t the whole series just come into existence all at once so I don’t have to endure the wait?
Chocolate Kisses: Aww…this novel had the best romance.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Ugh. I really don’t like reading romances, but if it’s a classic, I can stand it. The romance in this book was very complicated, which made the whole situation very amusing in a dry, classical kind of way.
Gummy Spiders: Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.
Unwind by Neal Shusterman: I did not want to read this book because the blurb alone sounded scary, but I kind of had to listen to it in reading class two years ago. It was horrible. It’s about harvesting kids’ body parts, you guys! On the plus side, every Friday when my teacher would read to us from this book we got to have free time.
Jumbo Lollipop: This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens: I first read this classic in fourth grade and it took me a whole month to slog through it. I remember liking the complexity of the book, but I could only understand it as I read by constantly rereading passages.
Cotton Candy: Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think: children’s or MG fiction.
The Little House on the Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder: (As well as every other historical fiction pioneer book that I could get my hands on.) My childhood revolved around this series. Not only did I reread the books over and over again, but I also played pioneers with my friends at recess.
Obviously, if I tagged you you don’t have to do the tag. It’s just something that you might want to consider.
Now I want to hear what book is milk chocolate for you!
