It’s Friday and a three day weekend (in the US – Labor Day!), what better way to kick off this weekend than the Pastry Book Tag? I’ve been tagged by the lovely Lizzy at mylittlebookblog. The tag was created by Áine at ‘writing on a vintage typewriter’, a very cool blog that you should check out! I do have to say that I absolutely love the theme for this book tag because I am a huge baker and love all things baked :) So, go ahead and get comfortable and read on for bookish answers with a pastry flair.
Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.
Pride and Prejudice. I’m hoping it’s one that is loved by all ;)
Macaron: Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it at the end.
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
I absolutely loved this book, but I will admit that it was hard at times reading it, but will always be happy that I finished it. It is such a wonderful novel.
Vol-au-vent: Name a book that you thought would be amazing but fell flat.
Hmm, there are a couple, but the first one to come to mind is The Perfect Witness by Iris Johansen.
Pain au chocolat: Name a book that you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else.
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. I don’t think I really knew what I thought how this book would turn out, but definitely not what it ended up being.
Profiterole: Name a book or series that doesn’t get enough attention.
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. I have no idea if it’s well known or not, but I think it has an amazing message (I also have yet to read the last book of this trilogy).
Croquembouche: Name a book or series that’s extremely complex.
House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski. Reading this book literally turned me on my side.
Napoleon: Name a movie or TV show based off a book that you liked better than the book itself.
So far, most of the Hunger Games franchise (thought I have yet to see the latest).
Empanada: Name a book that was bittersweet.
The Road by Cormac McCarthy. It’s been several years since I’ve read it, but I remember it ending it on the bittersweet side.
Kolompeh: Name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your home country.
Meet Me At the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan.
Pate a Choux: Name one food from a book or series that you would like to try.
A mug of butterbeer with a plate of lemon cakes (from Song of Ice and Fire) :)
This has been a highly enjoyable book tag to take part in and I hope you did as well! I now would like to pass the mixing spoon over to Ashley at Socially Awkward Bookworm.
I think I’ll go bake something in the meantime :)
Happy Reading <3 Nicole
