Coffee Book Tag

A blog prompt that combines books and coffee is a win for me. I saw this prompt on Her Geekery and I felt compelled to respond to this tag. In between working at Caribou and writing an article interviewing a local artist from Minnesota, I haven’t been in the blogging mood until I saw this prompt.

Black: A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

Game of Thrones

I won’t go more into this because I talk about Game of Thrones a lot in my Fandom Friday post last week. This book series is so dense and it’s something I’m never going to get into. The fans of Game of Thrones are so passionate and dedicated to the books and the TV series and I admire that.

Hot Chocolate: A favorite children’s book.

Franklin the Turtle.jpg

Franklin the Turtle was the best. I read every single book there was and I still have a stuffed Franklin in my room somewhere. I always learned a lesson from each book and I always loved how the animals all got together to hang out. A couple of Franklin’s books still exist on my bookshelf because I can’t get myself to get rid of them yet.

Starbucks: A book you see everywhere.

Girl On The Train

This book has been rated the new Gone Girl. I actually haven’t read Gone Girl, but I have read every other novel that Gillian Flynn has wrote and I loved them all. I haven’t read this book yet, but I may pick it up sometime soon.

That Hipster Coffee Shop: A book by an indie author (a shout out)

Operation Stop Hate

A year ago when I went on a local Minnesota book hunt, I got this book free from an author that I had a conversation with. It was a really interesting novel examining hate groups. This book pissed me off in the fact that people in this society have so much hate towards different groups. It goes to show how that hate can destroy society especially with what happened in Orlando. This book was thrilling and I loved that it mentions places in my home state.

Oops! I Accidentally Got Decaf: A book you were expecting more from.

Wicked Will Rise

I just can’t continue in this series anymore. You can find my old review of this book in my book category on my blog. I can’t identify with Amy anymore she really just bothers me. This whole book was a huge disappointment and as soon as I finished this book I got rid of it because I knew I would never touch it again.
The Perfect Blend: A book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.

Ninteen Minutes

This is easily the saddest book I have ever read. It’s about a small town impacted by a school shooting. Once the book delves into the shooter and what he’s gone through, you almost start to sympathize with him. If you have ever been a victim of bullying or have been a bully yourself, this book is something you need to read. This is the only Jodi Picoult book I have read because I haven’t really gotten into any of her other books.

Green Tea: a book or series that is quietly beautiful. 
Bioshock Rapture
This may seem like an odd choice, but hear me out. When I played Bioshock even though it was chaotic and distraught, I still found the city of Rapture to be beautiful. The whole 1920’s-30’s vibe and the underwater skyscrapers made me wish that Rapture was a real place only if it succeeded at being a normal city. I loved reading into how Andrew Ryan’s inspiration crashed and burned. This book demonstrates Rapture’s beauty before it goes to hell.
Chai Tea: A book or series that makes you dream of far off places.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Of course I wish Hogwarts was real.
Earl Grey: A favorite classic.
Jane Eyre.jpg
I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I hate Jane Austin books and other period works. It’s not my thing and the writing can be rather dull at times. So I’m honestly shocked that when I read this book in high school that I completely loved it. I don’t even know why I liked it, maybe I liked the setting or Mr. Rochester or I liked Jane’s random adventures. Either way this is one of my favorite classic books of all time. I will re-read Jane Eyre any time and I love that I tried to read something out of my comfort zone which is a classic mystery or a young adult novel.

  1. Yay, I’m so glad you joined in! I so so wish Hogwarts was real, and totally agree that some of the classics are extremely dull and hard to read. I keep meaning to pick up The Girl on the Train because I hear so many good things about it!
