Book Cake Tag!

Thanks to the lovely Brittany for tagging me to do the Book Cake Tag!  Check out her post. :)

Flour: A book that was a little bit slow to start off but really picked up as it went along.

 I'm going to chose, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor.  Even though this book is the start to one of my all-time favorite series, I thought the beginning was slow and somewhat confusing.  However, I later on began to love-love-love it, and I hope you've read it because if you haven't you need too!

Margarine: A book that had a rich, great plot.

 And Then There Were None is one of my top three favorite books.  The plot was scary, intriguing, interesting, and the characters were fantastic.  I can't think of any specific flaws for this book, it definitely had a rich, great plot.


Eggs: A book you thought was going to be bad but actually turned out quite enjoyable.

Born at Midnight is a supernatural book featuring a character that I disliked in the beginning.  I've been somewhat reluctant to read anything supernatural, but when I got this book recommended to me by my best-friend, I figured to give it a go.  The first few chapters seemed almost typical to me, but the pace picked up, and became quite enjoyable.


Sugar: A surgary, sweet book.

I was going through my shelf, and can't find any book more sugary and sweet than, Anna and the French Kiss!  It's light-hearted, fun, and adorable.  Not to mention, it's placed in the most beautiful place I've ever been too, PARIS!  Adorable book :)

Icing - A book that covered every single element that you enjoy about a book (funny moments, action moments, sad moments, etc.)

I'm going to go with, The Fifth Wave, by Rick Yancey.  I love-love-love books that  are apocalyptic, dystopian, and with a touch of fantasy.  Lemme tell you, this book covered everything and more!  There was action at every corner, I adored the characters and their courage, not to mention the well-thought dystopian setting.  Great book, can't wait to get my hands on the second one!

Sprinkles: A book series that you can kind of turn back to for a little pick me up when you're feeling down.

Maximum Ride by James Patterson.  This series is what spiked my interest for reading when I was probably . . . 10 or 11 years old.  I still find myself picking up one of the books in the series, reading a few chapters, and just falling in love with the books again.  I love following the story of Maximum Ride and her friends, as they fight to survive, and save the world.  Also, James Patterson recently released the news that there's going to be a 7th book in the series - can't wait!

The Cherry on Top - Your favorite book this year so far.

I had a hard time choosing this one, because I've read so many great books this year.  I concluded a tie between, The Night Circus, and The Book Thief.  However, after more thought, I'm picking The Book Thief.  How do I even talk about this spectacular book?  There's a rare amount of books that have a lasting effect on me, a kind that I know I'll never forget.  That's how the Book Thief is.


Check to see if you've been tagged!


  1. I love this! This is such a cute tag and I love the books that you picked for it :)

  2. Ha such a fun post idea! And I agree with all of these that I read! I loved Anna I really have to read the rest of this series! And The 5th Wave was so intense!!

    1. Glad you loved Anna, too! I haven't read the rest of the series either :( Yes, The Fifth Wave was so intense!!

  3. Great post!:) Love your blog, and good choice of books as well!<3

  4. Oh, this is such a fun tag! Thank you so much for the tag, and I will get this done as soon as my finals are done.. probably this weekend! I loved the books that you chose- Daughter of Smoke & Bone is also one of my favorite series! It's so twisted and I absolutely did not expect it to be so crazy. It took me a while after reading the first one to collect my thoughts. Thank you again for the tag lady (:

    1. Ooh good luck on finals! Thank you, can't wait to read your post (:

  5. This sounds fun! I love Anna and the French Kiss, The Fifth Wave and Daughter of Smoke and Bone is pretty good. You have great book taste! New follower :)

    The Life of Little Me

  6. How do people come up with such clever and fun themes for tags? Someday I'll think of one. Someday.

    I agree with many of your answers to the prompts! And Then There Were None is such a great book - it's one of only two Agatha Christie books I've read, but after devouring it in the span of a day, I desperately want more. Daughter of Smoke and Bone definitely could have condensed its slow start, but the writing kept me reading. And of course, Anna and the French Kiss is the perfect book for "sugar." :)

    1. Yay, another Agatha Christie fan! Glad you enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Anna and the French Kiss, thanks for stopping by :)

  7. This looks awesome, and i'm in love with the cover art for Margerine!

    The Blog Hermit

  8. Any Perkins book is definitely a sugary, sweet read. Great choices, especially Daughter of Smoke and Bone for flour. I've heard that it can be hard to get through.
