Books & Cookies, a tag to make you all hungry

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you’re all having a lovely week so far.

I haven’t done a book tag in a little while and they’re always a lot of fun, so I thought that today I’d get back to it with this lovely book tag I found over at Tiffany’s blog and that she unofficially tagged me for. Let’s be honest, when there are cookies involved, I can’t resist, I have such a sweet tooth. I mean….

Okay, now that we’re all very hungry and craving cookies… let’s talk about books! (I’m cruel. sorry about that.)

Chocolate Chip | A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed

This question is a little tricky to answer, since I haven’t read a lot of classics. I’ve read some French classics when I was at school, some of them at university as well, but I never was such a huge fan of them somehow. I think I can mention Lord of the Flies, maybe, because it’s one book I kind of enjoyed despite the terrible things happening?

Thin Mints | A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ and/or a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read

I want to mention, well… Evelyn Hugo. I know. Everyone has been loving and raving and screaming and crying about this book for months and years and I still haven’t read it. It is on my TBR though and I will be reading it in 2019, that’s a promise. I really can’t wait to discover what all the hype is about.

Shortbread | An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of

This is a TERRIBLE question okay, there are just SO many authors?! Alice Oseman, because she writes the best books and the best characters ever. Morgan Matson, because she feeds my contemporary lover every time. John Green, for obvious reasons that I love everything he does. Paula Stokes, because I started her books and need to read more from her as soon as possible. SO MANY AUTHORS.

Samoas | An Emotional Rollercoaster

I’ve read my share of emotional rollercoasters and, let’s be honest, these are also my favorite kind of books. I think I’m going to go with Our Year of Maybe, a book I got lucky enough to read that releases early January. It’s about friendship and love and it’s so, so, so beautiful and emotional and realistic and I loved it very, very much.

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

I think I want to talk about Cruel Beauty for that one. I fell in love with the cover and the fact that this was a Beauty & The Beast retelling and was so, so eager to read it. If I overall liked it, I felt also a bit confused every now and then and this really lowered my enjoyment for it, unfortunately.

Tagalongs / Peanut Butter Patties | A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected

Yes I’m going to talk about This Mortal Coil, because… why not. I’ve read my share of dystopian stories and I have to admit that I didn’t expect very much from that one. I expected to enjoy it, sure, but I didn’t really expect to love it THAT much. It was brilliant, it was original, compelling, stressful to read and so, so good. I can’t wait to get the sequel.

Snickerdoodles | A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving

So…. I guess it’s that time where I mention my favorite books? I’m not going to mention the ones by authors I quoted above, so… I’m going to say:

  • Emergency Contact, because that book just is everything and relatable and my heart and I loved it so, so, so much.
  • Girl Out Of Water, because hello I’m not coherent but I adore this book with all of my heart.
  • The Forbidden Wish, because it’s an Aladdin retelling with fierce, badass characters and the writing and I’m obsessed.

 

I’m tagging some amazing bloggers here, but feel free to skip it if you don’t feel like doing it! AND feel free to do it if you’re not tagged, but feel inspired by the questions, I’d love to see your answers!

As we say it here in France… Bon appétit!

Do you spot some of your favorite books here? How badly do I NEED to read Evelyn Hugo?

What’s a book that was an emotional rollercoaster for you? Feel free to let me know your recommendations in comments!

  1. As the person with a blog called Books & Munches I feel like it would be totally LAME if I’d skip on this tag, haha! It’ll be a hard nut to crack though [pun! nut. munches. y’know.] since.. I can’t really come up with answers immediately? No clue when I’ll be doing it since I pretty much have the entirety of January planned out already post-wise.. Eventually though!

    Also.. I should read Evelyn Hugo as well. Especially since people who know I don’t like his fic keep recommending the book to me and I now own a copy? Emergency Contact is on my wish list so.. fingers crossed. I’ve been hearing good things about that one!

    1. That’s why I thought of you immediately for this tag hahaha 😛 but I can’t believe you already have JANUARY planned out. You’re just, wow you’re my planning role model honestly haha. And of course, take your time!! ❤️

      Here’s to hoping we will love Evelyn Hugo! And YES EMERGENCY CONTACT AHH, I hope you’ll read it soon, it is incredible ❤️

  2. OOF That cookie gif is soooo satisfying 😍and Yay! I’m so happy that you’re doing this tag! The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is also a book I really want to read. I’ve heard so many great things about it (where people were even changing their Twitter names because they loved it 😂 that I definitely think I’m missing out on a great read) I have been absolutely loving John Green and Morgan Matson books, so I’ll check out Alice Oseman and Paula Stokes sometime *adds to overflowing TBR*

  3. Loved your answers! I’m totally with you on the Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo! I haven’t read it yet but I’m planning to pick it up in 2019! I haven’t read the Cruel Beauty but I really liked the other book named Crimson Bound. I totally agree with you on The Mortal Coil! I can’t wait to read This Cruel Design! I loved The Forbidden Wish! The characters and the story was amazing! I really wish there was a sequel to it! I haven’t read The Emergency Contact yet but I have it on my TBR list.

  4. I’m so sorry you didn’t love Cruel Beauty! I actually thought the cover and story were quite up to pair in this case 🙂
    I really want to try Morgan Matson as I a) read so few contemporaries and b) she sounds like she writes the sweetest stories! I also want to read The Forbidden Wish – it’s been on my TBR since forever.
    Thanks so much for sharing, Marie, and great choices ❤

  5. Hello, Marieeeee! Oh God, I don’t even know if you remember me at this point, but it’s Lais here and I’m finally back to the book-blogging world. I was so happy to read your posts again, since it’s been such a long while I last did blog-hopping too! I did a total makeover on my blog, and finally migrated to WordPress, which is proving to be a much more practical platform than Tumblr – though it hurts my soul that there’s so little you can personalize in your Theme without a premium package. Maybe in the future i’ll upgrade, and have a blog as gorgeous as yours!
    Anyways, about your post: you chose the best and most torturous gifs ever, right? Hahah. I’m not really the biggest fan of cookies, and after reading this tag, I realize that I really need to step up my game, because I have never heard of most of these, like Samoas and Tagalongs. I’m more of a chocolate-chip, very basic kind of girl, hahah.
    I’m happy to be back and I plan on catching up in some of your posts as well, so please don’t mind me if I leave a comment in a two-month old post, heheh.
    Hope you have a lovely week! ❤

    I enjoyed reading your answers for this tag! You definitely made me crave cookies haha 🙂
    The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is a book that I’ve been wanting to read for the longest time ahaha, so it is absolutely on my TBR for next year. Emergency Contact is an extraordinary book, and definitely one of my YA contemporary favs 😀

  8. Oh my god those cookie gifs are making me so so hungry right now! I’m actually feeling the urge the bake cookies just so they can be fresh and still warm from the oven (there’s nothing better right!?) Great picks for this tag though Marie, I’ve been seeing a lot of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo around, and everyone seems to love it so I may be picking that one up in 2019 as well. Also Morgan Matson is an author I can’t get enough of too; all her books have pretty much been five star reads for me, and I can’t wait for whatever she comes out with next. 🙂
    Great post, and great picks for this tag too. 🙂 ❤

  10. What a cute tag; I love this post!! 🍪💓 Omg Marie you absolutely NEED to read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo!! It’s honestly such an emotional and gorgeously written book, with complex characters that you can’t help but fall in love with (especially Evelyn herself). I’m so excited for you to read it 💚

    And ahhh I love IWBFT and The Forbidden Wish so much!! 😍 I really need to check out the other books you mentioned as well; they all sound incredible. And I’m SO glad you loved Our Year of Maybe; it’s one of my most anticipated releases. Lovely post as always, Marie 💞

  11. Okay so you really NEED to read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo! *screams* I mean, everyone probably already told you to do it and I hope that you’ll love it. It was such an emotional rollercoaster for me and I might have read it twice this year and it might be my favourite book of the year (along with The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society because I can’t choose). Oops.

    You made me so hungry with all the cookie gifs haha, this was a nice tag! 🙂

  14. This post is just so cosy and warm and COOKIES! I love cookies so much, they’re just such a good treat? I really want to see just how good Evelyn Hugo is because I haven’t seen ONE negative review for it which is an achievement for a book, in my opinion. I’ve heard mixed things about Emergency Contact, so I’m really glad you enjoyed it and that it meant so much to you – I’m a little more interested in the book now that you’ve raved about it!

    1. Agree, I’m just so curious about this book and I haven’ heard anything wrong about it so far, which is… very surprising haha. Let’s hope we will both love it 🙂
