The Pastry Book Tag

I was tagged a while ago by Trisha Ann @ The Bookgasm, thank you for that 😀 I don’t even know what half of these pastries are hahaha. 

CROISSANT: NAME A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES THAT EVERYONE (INCLUDING YOU) LOVES

17372039Does anyone pick anything other than Harry Potter for this one? It’s the only series I can think of that almost mostly everyone will at least like, if not love.

MACARONS: NAME A BOOK THAT WAS HARD TO GET THROUGH BUT WORTH IT IN THE END

6794Cloud Atlas. It’s almost impossible to explain this book if you haven’t read it or seen the movie, but basically it’s several short stories woven into one. All the short stories are different genres and take place in different time periods, but somehow they’re all linked. Some of them are a bit hard to read, but it’s really interesting.

VOL-AU-VENT: NAME A BOOK THAT YOU THOUGHT WILL BE AMAZING BUT FELL FLAT

12973964Cinder. It was an okay book, but I’d hoped for more of an oomph. The world-building was poor and did Prince Kai have a memorable personality? Eh, don’t know. I might read the second book if I feel like it. 

 

 

 

PAIN-AU-CHOCOLAT: NAME A BOOK THAT YOU THOUGH WOULD BE ONE THING BUT TURNED OUT TO BE SOMETHING ELSE

9460487Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. I mention this book a lot so most of you probably already know how I feel about it, but I wanted creepy ghost children. I wanted creepiness overall, but there was none. Sigh. 

 

 

 

PROFITEROLE: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT DOESN’T GET ENOUGH ATTENTION

                                    17262303     13638125

I’m only speaking for people who don’t pay attention to book blogs or twitters or youtube channels etc., because both these authors get plenty attention from us. V.E. Schwab and Patrick Ness both need to be in the bookstores where I live, why aren’t they??? Ugh. Especially Vicious and More Than This. 

CROQUEMBOUCHE: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT’S COMPLETELY COMPLEX

13496A Song of Ice and Fire. I haven’t yet read anything that’s more complex than this series. 

 

 

 

 

NAPOLEON: NAME A MOVIE OR TV SHOW BASED OFF A BOOK THAT YOU LIKED BETTER THAN THE BOOK ITSELF

6148028I liked the book, but I enjoyed the Catching Fire movie a lot more than the book for some reason. It’s my favorite movie in the series. 

 

 

 

 

EMPANADA: NAME A BOOK THAT WAS BITTERSWEET

7260188Mockingjay. That ending is definitely bittersweet in my interpretation. 

 

 

 

 

KOLOMPEH: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT TAKES PLACE SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN YOUR OWN COUNTRY

239272That’s pretty much every book that’s not Norwegian. I’ll pick a book that takes place somewhere that’s not in the US or the UK, to make it more interesting. Things Fall Apart, Nigeria. 

 

 

 

 

PATE-A-CHOUX: NAME A FOOD FROM A BOOK OR SERIES THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY

Basically anything from Harry Potter. All the delicious and weird candy. Take me to Honeydukes. 


 

Since I haven’t been around in a while I don’t know who’s done this tag recently and who haven’t, so I’ll just tag everyone who’s interested in doing it. Go on, I tag you.

    I have Cloud Atlas sitting on my bookshelf and have probably tried to tackle it twice. Both times I just couldn’t read it anymore – it felt so daunting and I didn’t feel engaged! It’s one of those books that I have to read though. I have this feeling that I’ll like it, but it’s just a giant in my eyes. XD

    I really should read More Than This; I recently finished A Monster Calls, and I loved it. Ness never fails! 😀

      I would never have read Cloud Atlas, or at least never finished it, if I didn’t have to read it for class. It’s a good book but it’s not the kind of book that I personally would read for pleasure, haha 😀 More Than This is awesome, I recommend it to everyone!

        The first story in Cloud Atlas is the most difficult one, I think, because it’s got the whole 1800s vibe and is hard to read. The others are easier, especially the third and fourth 😀 I haven’t read Crime and Punishment (yet??) so I admire that accomplishment, haha!

    Oooh I love this tag! I might have to do it one day (once I catch up with the tags I still have to do). And YES to Things Fall Apart – I read it last year. I actually haven’t read a lot of the books you mentioned (other than The Hunger Games Trilogy, Harry Potter and Things Fall Apart)
