Chocolate Day. Or so the silly holidays powers that be inform me. Sometimes I
question their sanity since I swear we have some form of “Read a Book Day” once
a month. But that’s not the point. Back on schedule for today’s topic, and
we’re mean to be talking all things chocolate.
enjoy a piece of chocolate (peanut butter M&Ms are a weakness) or a good
chocolate chip cookie (homemade for the win!) now and again, but overall, I’d
rather have a good crisp (apple, rhubarb or peach, doesn’t matter) or muffin to
satisfy my sweet tooth.
let pass. I’m celebrating in one of two ways. One being this post, the more “rigid” format in
which I answer book tag prompts (I also wrote another chocoholic post, but decided to hold off on posting it). Secondly, I decided to catty the fun over to BOOKTUBE!
This is a tag I saw this on a fellow booktuber’s channel and
thought it’d be fun to join in – no, I wasn’t tagged in this one, but still… So part of the Q’s are answered on my
booktube channel, the rest I talk about down below (and those that do crossover
feature two different answers).
This question is so unfair. I have so many favorite light-hearted
reads. Mostly because, overall, it’s this that’s my favored genre. As someone
who reads for pleasure, I love it when a novel can take me on an adventure in a
Geek Girl by Holly Smale. BONUS! Some
of the authors I turn to for such reads include, Jenny B. Jones; Melissa Tagg;
Kasie West and so many more!
Wafer-free Kit-Kat – Name a book that surprised you lately | Hmm… I don’t know that I’ve read one that surprised me lately. Back in
December, I did read Close to You which
is absolutely amazing. I guess since I read repeat authors (and am happiest
when I do), going into the book “knowing” it’s going to stun, I don’t really
end up being “surprised” because I was confident it’d reach that level of
amazing. But this is the first book by Kara Isaac I read, and so it was a
lovely treat to discover her brand of storytelling.
is my current read. I really wanted to be further along in this one, fellow
bookworms, but sadly, this week has been full of canning. (Blogger trivia: I
detest making applesauce.)
for a comfort read?* | Here I’ll be more generic. Some of the
authors I turn to for comfort reads (because they’re so talented and good at
it) are Nicole Deese (A New Shade of
Summer); Denise Hunter (The Goodbye Bride,
Just a Kiss); Katherine Reay; Melissa
Tagg; and plenty more.
Into these stories, I could also insert Debra White Smith’s Jane Austen (contemporary) re-tellings. Though it’s been years since I read them, I adore the new covers and I’m now SO ready for a reread.
variety and a little something for everyone | Good
question. I’ll choose the Doon series and Unblemished trilogy. Both seem to
represent this question really well. Both are set in contemporary worlds before
eventually travelling to other realms (the former travels in time to historical
Scotland, the latter into a kind of parallel world called a “Reflection”).
There’s also plenty of romance, adventure and angst y teen drama. If you want an
adult novel, look no further than Becky Wade’s True to You (or
any of her novels).

Have you read any of these books? Do you like them? What books would you pair
with chocolate?? (What’s your favorite KIND of chocolate??) Let’s chat,
