The Pastry Book Tag

Hi bookish friends! How are you?! I hope you all had a great week! My week was pretty long, and bothering at uni, but thank god it’s over, and with that, holidays are here, finally! So today, to put myself, and everyone in a good mood, whether you’re in class, at work, or close to some school break, well, let’s talk about…food?!

Beforehand, let me apologize if this post is making you hungry…it surely made me hungry, while I was writing it! Today, I have to thank the incredible Ashley @ Socially Awkward Bookworm for tagging me to do the Pastry Book tag. Let’s talk about some treats, and talk about books, too! πŸ™‚

All the pictures were found on tumblr.

tumblr_static_tumblr_static_ap1izhkg4yog08og00osw0swk_640Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.

The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins. I’m sure it’s a popular choice, Β but well…I really loved this series. It’s chilling, and I can’t wait to see the movie!

tumblr_lw25mgnsPv1qh76z0o1_500_largeMacaron: Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it at the end.

For this one, I’m gonna go with The 5th Wave, Rick Yancey. I had a hard time getting into it, at first, because I was very confused. About the characters, the setting, the change of POV, I was kind of lost. But in the end, it really was worth the ride. A chilling ride, though, beware!

tumblr_lkqtjnR2Qn1qg8cf4o1_500Vol-au-vent: Name a book that you thought would be amazing but fell flat.

I can’t really say that I didn’t like it, I thought it was really a good idea, and an incredible world-shaping. But I couldn’t understand the hype around Magonia, and right now, I still can’t. Only Jason gave me feels in this book.

tumblr_la824iV1yO1qap4gao1_r1_500Pain au chocolat: Name a book that you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else.

The DUFF. I’ve heard so many things about this book, I thought it would be a great ride into teenagehood, but I just couldn’t stand the main character. So sad.

tumblr_mscfix8npD1r74kvio1_500Profiterole: Name a book or series that doesn’t get enough attention.

I want to say the Mara Dyer series, but only because I want everyone to read it. It’s one hell of a story, you won’t read anything like it, and nothing worth the chills that it gives you. This story is powerful!

tumblr_mxahl0jUxt1r7hkamo1_r1_400Croquembouche: Name a book or series that’s extremely complex.

What do you mean, by, extremely? If I can’t understand the story, I think I won’t read it at all, haha. Unremembered, The Program, Revived, all of those kind of dystopian stories have intricate plots, I’d say!

tumblr_lq5k3bmAPq1qayvcwo1_1280Napoleon: Name a movie or TV show based off a book that you liked better than the book itself.

Gossip Girl is the first tv show that comes to my mind. It’s such a guilty pleasure, and I love all of the actors a lot, especially Leighton Meester, who’s incredible!

tumblr_m0f5b8GCOp1qa24nfo1_500Empanada: Name a book that was bittersweet.

The probability of miracles. It’s a difficult subject, it’s hard, and sad, and heartbreaking, but, still.

569f641fd3bb102844aed0c8d3ef6927Kolompeh: Name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your home country.

I can say every single book?! Most of them take place in the US, or England, or…I don’t know many books that are setΒ in France!

tumblr_m9ovtps6gT1rrjmbjo1_500Pate a Choux: Name one food from a book or series that you would like to try.

Hm, I think I would love to try all the pastries they cook in the PS. I still love you series. It just sounds so amazing and makes my mouth water everytime I read it!

Since I’ve seen this tag around a lot lately, I’m not going to tag anyone to do this. However, if you’d like to join, please do, I’m officially tagging you!Β 

Tell me something, guys…which one of these pastries is your favorite? Mine has to be the pain au chocolat…! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m so glad to see I’m not alone! Bianca bothered me so much, I couldn’t stand her! Awww you’re SO lucky, you must have been thrilled!! Leighton is really great! I’m even more happy that she’s with Adam Brody, I love him too, haha! πŸ™‚

      1. Oh, I couldn’t stand her either. We’re in this together.
        I know! I jumped up and down through the entire apartment. I love her with Adam too, they are so cute together and now they even have a baby. Perfect little family!

  1. So for the past week I have been working a horrendous temp job (I quit yesterday) and during one of the conversations I had with the other temps we were talking about how the guy from the Divergent movies is way hotter than the guy from The Hunger Games (sophisticated, I know). But anyway, as soon as The Hunger Games came up one of the other girls said that when she first saw the movie she thought that it was based on a true story.

    So that happened.

  2. I love all the food pictures! They made me so hungry though πŸ˜€

    I’ve been wanting to read Magonia for a while now, because the book is stunning, but I’ve heard so many mixed reviews. Everyone compares it to Neil Gaiman so maybe I’ll just go read some more Neil Gaiman first…

    1. Haha thank you so much Jenna! ❀ It made me hungry when I wrote this article, too! πŸ™‚ I understand what you mean, I only read one Neil Gaiman book, I think. I understand why they compare those two πŸ™‚ I hope you'll enjoy it! πŸ™‚

  3. Yup that DEFINITELY made me hungry. *wipes drool off laptop* πŸ˜„ Ahhh, I totally agree about Magonia! Half the time I was sitting there going “wait…wut?!” It was just too weird for me (though Jason WAS adorable). I definitely want to read Mara Dyer someday! πŸ˜€
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. I’m so glad I’m not alone, I was STARVING after searching all of those delicious pastries. I’m such a sweet tooth, so that doesn’t help, at all, haha! πŸ™‚ thank you, I felt the same way about Magonia, the whole universe was interesting, but I was just, SO confused.
      I hope you’ll get to read Mara Dyer soon, it’s such an amazing series! πŸ™‚
      Thank you for stopping by, Cait! πŸ˜€

  4. Sounds like you need some good foreign country book recs, I would say Memoirs of a Geisha (though some inaccuracies), House of Shattered Wings,The Peony Lantern for some I’ve read and liked recently!

    I agree, Magonia ended up sort of boring even though in theory I should have adored it!
