Pancakes and books, the perfect combo – The Pancake Book Tag

I love pancakes. I love food, really, but I am such a sweet tooth, give me anything sweet and I’ll cave. Like, pancakes.

Today, I thought I’d take part in this wonderful book tag that allows me to drool over pancakes while screaming about books. And boy, we all know how much I adore screaming about books…. So let’s get to here and here’s to hoping you will enjoy this as much as I had fun doing it!

β˜‚οΈ The Rules

  • Link back to the original creator in your post.
  • Feel free to use any of my pancake graphics in your post, or create your own!
  • Tag 5 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them. πŸ™‚

You can click on the book covers to go to the book’s goodreads page.

The Astonishing Color of After is a piece of art and I am in awe of how beautifully written it is. Some sentences just made me… stop and stare for a second to really swallow it whole because damn, I wish I could write like that. I sobbed, too, therefore I’d 200% recommend this.

“She was the color of home.”

πŸ“– read my review

I have to go with these characters from Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegmund Broka’s books, because they write the BEST characters ever. I adored Megan in their debut, Always Never Yours and recently fell in love with Cameron in If I’m Being Honest. They tend to write the greatest characters, always so sharp and witty and confident and I feel so… empowered while reading about them, I love them.

πŸ“– read my review of Always never yours

I feel like Morgan Matson’s books are always such comfort reads for me, I couldn’t pick one – well, maybe I’d leave out Second Chance Summer, because that one makes me sob okay. Other than this one, they all just… remind me of why I love contemporary books so much and I love them.

πŸ“– review of the unexpected everything

I think I want to go with one of my latest reads for this one, We Set The Dark On Fire. This book, friends, THIS BOOK is just ahh and I loved it so much. The world-building is incredible, the characters are amazing, the romance is ALL THE FEELS EVERYWHERE. That ending completely destroyed me and I can’t wait for the sequel. Yes, I’m still a little bit hangover from it okay.

I feel like everyone should have this book on their TBR and read it and fall in love with it please and thank you. This book. THIS BOOK just gave me all the feels and Rachel Lynn Solomon did such an incredible job with it, tackling overwhelming, beautiful, complicated friendship and feelings and someone scream with me about the beauty of this book.

πŸ“– read my review

I think that I want to talk about Holland for a second here, friends. I mean… I couldn’t stand this character for the entire ADSOM series, yet I can really applaud how incredibly well-built his story was and how we discovered his past, who he was and how he became what he is through the story, too. There’s so much to him when you peel the layers and I loved that so, so much.

πŸ“– read my review

I’m going to go with Lauren James for this one and… I could mention many of her books, since she is quite gifted with plot twists and surprising events, but I’m going to go with The Loneliest Girl. This book surprised me so, so much and I devoured it just as well. Such a good book, filled with suspense and a thrilling read.

πŸ“– read my review

When you first read Shatter Me, it’s kind of hard to… well, fall in love with Warner and the idea of Juliette and Warner. That being said, as the books went on and as we discovered more of Warner, too, I just fell head over heels for them and I love them way too much now. I need to read Defy Me as soon as possible.

I do like peanut butter, in small doses… but Avery from The Thousandth Floor…. well she really makes me recoil because she is just that terrible. That being said, I found this book and the life of these rich teenagers in a futuristic, Gossip-Girl-vibes New York way, way too entertaining and maybe I just want to hate Avery a little more in the next books, too. Is that terrible?

This book deserves way more hype, friends, it’s one of these underrated YA contemporaries I adored with a broken friendship at its heart and it’s just so, so, SO good. The characters in this book are wonderfully diverse, two of the three main characters are POC and we have one sapphic main character just as well and the softest, most adorable f/f romance. We also have POC side characters.

  1. I love pancakes and consequently, I adore this post!! I’m so glad you love Warnette too because they are one of my fave couples and I adore Warner SO MUCH. I was really excited for Defy Me, but I have to say it’s the weakest book in the series (aside from Shatter Me). It felt really rushed and nothing really happened…? I really hope “IMAGINE ME” (I can’t believe we have a title now??) is a lot better, and I think it should be since it’s the finale!! Seeing you gush about so many books genuinely wants to make me read them. I actually have Since You’ve Been gone at my library but I’m so daunted by its large size – I think I’ll want to read it in the summer holidays though! I’m so happy you adored We Set The Dark on Fire – it honestly sounds like my type of book?! and Eek, the astonishing color of after being on here makes ME SMILE SO MUCH!!! I adore the writing (and everything about that book) with my entire heart!! This was honestly such a sweet post, I loved it.

    1. Oh well that’s so good to know. I haven’t had a chance to get a copy of Defy Me just yet, but I was so impatient to read it, I think I’ll lower my expectations a little bit then! BUT YES IMAGINE ME! I can’t believe we have a title and I am so, so excited about it already as well πŸ˜€

      I hope you’ll get to read Since You’ve Been Gone soon – it’s a long contemporary, but I personally loved it. And We Set The Dark On Fire AH THIS BOOK I AM OBSESSED. I love it way too much ❀ ❀

      Thank you so, so much!! ❀

  2. Ooooh I knew there was more about Holland! I finished the first book, A Darker Shade of Magic, and I’m just started to read the second book, so I’m really excited to see all the characters grow. Also, reading this tag during breakfast-time has made me super hungry & now I’m craving pancakes with butter and maple syrup! πŸ˜† πŸ₯ž Thank you for these book recommendations, Marie!

      1. I gave up sugar for Lent, which was possibly needed (I’m a slight addict) but also a *real* challenge πŸ˜‚ With the long Easter weekend, I can’t wait to just make stacks of yummy pancakes (pun intended) and cover them in chocolate and all sorts of other yummy sugary things! πŸ˜‚ Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ❀

  4. Thank you for tagging me Marie!! I absolutely LOVE pancakes ❀ They're one of my major cravings. I also really really loved your answers for all of these fun questions. I'm pretty sure that The Astonishing Color of After will be my answer for most beautiful prose as well, and Megan and Cameron I know will be easy favorites for witty characters πŸ™‚ I can't wait to do this tag as well!!

  5. Thanks so much for the tag Marie, I want to try and take part in this one soon because I LOVE pancakes (honestly they’re my favourite sweet food, I could eat them every day!)
    I love your answers for this tag too; I could definitely read Morgan Matson’s releases over and over. Like you said maybe not Second Chance Summer but definitely The Unexpected Everything which has such a fun summer vibe and plenty of cute dogs too. Also Holland was a character I couldn’t stand at first either, I hated him at the end of ADSOM but by the end of ACOL I loved his character.
    Great post, and again thanks for the tag. πŸ™‚ ❀

  6. I loved this post!! And now I’m hungry, even though I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten a pancake in my life

    I didn’t like Holland either until I read ACOL. Now, every time I think about him… why is V.E. Schwab so cruel sometimes. Why.
    And I’m with you in despising Avery! I despised everyone in that book, and the book itself (…the only thing I liked about it was how quickly I read it), but her and her brother more than everyone else.

  8. I LOVE pancakes! Recently one of my roommates had extra pancake batter from breakfast, so at 10 PM we had a pancake party with the remainder of the batter. It was amazing!

    I also 100% agree with your answer of Always Never Yours! I loved how she was sharp and witty and can’t wait for a similar dynamic in If I’m Being Honest! And I read Shatter Me knowing Warner was endgame and somehow managed to like him in book one because of that. I’m honestly not sure how. I just went through it going “I’m sure you have a reason for every terrible thing you’re doing”, and then he did!

      I can’t wait for you to read If I’m Being Honest, it’s such an incredible read just as well ❀ ❀ I guess you have a different vision of things when you're going in, knowing Warner will be endgame ahah πŸ˜€

  9. Pancakes are glorious– I just found a recipe for ‘tiramisu pancakes’ the other day and being a massive tiramisu fan I was very excited.
    I also love this tag– with the graphics and everything!! I’ve heard a lot of good things about the astonishing colour of after so I am glad you enjoyed it as well. Whenever I read beautiful writing I also wish I could write like that. But I think reading books with beautiful writing helps towards that!!
    I really want to read the whole ‘A Darker Shade of Magic’ series– I have heard a lot of good things!! And ‘this is what it feels like’ sounds like a beautiful book too!!
    Lovely post Marie!!! πŸ™‚

  10. Oh I love this tag! 1) because pancakes and 2) the questions! Morgan Matson is one of my go-to contemporary authors, especially during the summer. Her books leave you warm and fuzzy inside. Holland is one of my favorite anti-heroes of late. Schwab really knows how to navigate a gray character. I tried reading The Thousandth Floor but I couldn’t stand any of the characters, which I suppose is the point, but I was never really good at those types of dramatic stories. That’s why I could never get through Gossip Girl or the Luxe series haha. Anyways, great answers! πŸ˜€

  12. This Tag is amazing as I very much love pancakes 😍πŸ₯ž (and also peanut butter, I never had it when I was younger so now I’m making up for that πŸ˜„) Warner and Juliette really were a couple that I wasn’t onboard with romantically at first but the third book was something! I still haven’t read Defy me as well πŸ˜…

  13. Ahhh! Thank you so much for doing my tag, Marie! You have no idea how happy this made me. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ❀ I absolutely loved reading all your answers. I definitely agree with the choice of Since You've Been Gone as a comforting read, I adored that story and I really need to try some of the author's other novels because I have a feeling I will love them!

    Thanks again for taking the time to do my tag (and I love the cool post header image!).

I love pancakes!! 😍 I haven’t had them in forever though so this is making me hungry haha, but I definitely will steal this tag 😌And omg so many favourites here…Shatter Me is such a good series (although I need to read the newer books!) and I LOVED The Astonishing Colour and the Morgan Matson books! I seriously need to read We Set the Dark on Fire. And Holland asjfdkslad I have mixed feelings about him. Like he is bad but also not inherently bad? We stan a complex character (who is also terrible at times πŸ˜‚)
