The Chocolate Book Tag

Wednesday, November 18, 2015


I rarely do tag posts on my blog, but I came across this one a while back and thought that it had a really interesting concept. Usually, tag posts are quite boring and only ask you basic questions, but this one was much more creative and can be interpreted in many different ways. I thought I'd share my answers with you today, as it may be fun to hear my thoughts. Also, you can get involved by leaving your answers down in the comments.

DARK CHOCOLATE - A BOOK THAT COVERS A DARK TOPIC
Saving Daisy by Phil Earle definitely fulfils this criterion, as it is about a girl called Daisy recovering after her father was killed in a car crash that was partially her fault. Although it was quite a few years ago that I read it, it has always stood out in my head as being a moving and dark yet outstanding novel. Many important subject matters are addressed and the book is creatively written, making it emotional and powerful. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who hasn't read it and I'd actually love to re-read it in the future.

WHITE CHOCOLATE - MY FAVOURITE LIGHT-HEARTED / HUMOROUS READ
This one was difficult to choose, as I rarely read lighthearted, humorous reads. In fact, barely any of the books that I've read feature these elements, and if they do then they are relatively subtle. The only book that I could think of is The Selection by Kiera Cass, simply because America and Maxon share some funny interactions and there are a few witty lines. I'll definitely keep thinking about this, as I find it impossible to believe that I haven't read any light-hearted or humorous books!

MILK CHOCOLATE - A BOOK WITH A LOT OF HYPE THAT I'M DYING TO READ
There are so many books that I could put down for this question, so if you'd like to know a long list of possibilities then you can take a look at my Book Wishlist (change name and link). However, I think that The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken is a clear winner. I hear a huge amount of people talk about it and praise it, but I still haven't got around to reading it. It is well loved by bookworms and bloggers alike, leaving me out of the loop for not trying it.

CHOCOLATE WITH A CARAMEL CENTRE - A BOOK THAT MAKES ME FEEL ALL GOOEY IN THE MIDDLE
The only book that I could put down for this is Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, simply because I'm in love with the storyline, the characters and pretty much everything about it. Patch and Nora's relationship is much more compassionate and meaningful than others in young adult books and the novel as a whole has a really special feel to it. I've completed the tetralogy and I was left with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside throughout it.

WAFER FREE KIT KAT - A BOOK THAT SURPRISED ME
Although I read it about a year ago now, a book that completely surprised me was Freaks by Lisa M Forester. I picked this up from my local library with little to no expectations and I simply expected it to be a light read that would be average. I was definitely wrong about this, as I fell in love with the novel and now class it as one of my favourite books. There is a strong science-fiction element which really appealed to me and every part of the book felt like it was written for myself, as it was suited to my tastes and a gripping read.

SNICKERS - A BOOK THAT I'M GOING NUTS ABOUT
I've decided to change this to a book series, which is The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. I've read Clockwork Angel, the first book, and I'm highly anticipating the remaining books in the series. Clockwork Angel was an amazing read that I loved throughout and I particularly loved the amount of foreshadowing and misdirection that are evident in all Cassandra Clare books. I'm dying to read the other two books in the series, and hopefully they will be equally as good as the first.

HOT CHOCOLATE WITH CREAM AND MARSHMALLOWS - A BOOK THAT I WOULD TURN TO FOR COMFORT
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is my obvious choice for this, as it's a book that I've loved since the day I picked it up a few years ago. I fell in love with the intricate storyline and the book itself was the start of my Mortal Instruments addiction, so it holds a special place in my heart. Another book that I would read for comfort would be Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman, as I'm in love with the fantasy elements of this story and it's definitely a favourite of mine, despite being hugely underrated.

Thanks for reading this post and I hope you liked it, despite it being different to my usual content. Remember to leave your answers in a comment below, as I'd love to know your thoughts and opinions for these questions. I'll be back on Sunday with a new post, so I'll see you then.

Love from Daisy x
