The Cookie Book Tag

I came across this on The Finicky Cynic blog   yesterday and it got me thinking of all the books I’ve read so I figured, why not share my experiences. I also read the posts by Melissa-The Bookish Wanderer and Nicole who created this tag last year. Thanks Nicole!

Chocolate Chip: A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed (interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago)

I grew up reading literary giants like Achebe, Grace Ogot, Asenath Bole Odaga and Ngugi wa Thiongo’ and this book is second in a trilogy that focuses on the changes that came with colonialism. I am still in awe of Ezeulu, the Chief priest of the god Ulu, who is the main character in this book and his struggle to remain relevant at a very trying time.

Thin Mints: A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read (your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere)

A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J Maas

I’ve seen so many reviews of this series on Instagram that I would love to read it.

Shortbread: An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of

Samoas/ Caramel DeLites: An Emotional Rollercoaster (this cookie was hard … so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you)

I still believe that if there’s a book you ought to read this year, this is it! It will break your heart, lift you up, dust you off, let you wobble a bit, break your heart, open your mind and all the while you’ll wonder just how much a person, more so, a child can take during conflict. I posted a review- here.

Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover

Dragma's Keep (Valdaar's Fist Book 1) by [Pumphrey, Vance]

If you love an epic adventure, then this book is right up your alley. I’m talking about a noble soldier, a sorcerer/caster, a dwarf, a thief and a priestess, what could go wrong? I loved the book, but the cover…not so much.

Tagalongs/ Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)

In The KitchenI loved this book despite the negative reviews it received. Gabriel’s a chef who dreams of opening up his own restaurant but he struggles with actualizing his dream.

Snickerdoodles: A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving
