Hello lovelies! How are you? I have a fun tag planned today, but first I just have to say thank you so much for all the lovely comments you guys left on my last post! I was kind of nervous about posting something that’s not directly book related and you guys were all so kind and supportive. This community really is the best.
I saw this tag on Rachel’s blog about an age and a half ago and I’ve always wanted to do it cause the questions seem so fun. Plus it’s a lovely chance for us to get to know a little more about each other, like favorite colors and desserts. The big, important things in life!
Your favorite color and a book you own in that color?
If you hadn’t guessed this already my favorite color’s pink, the color of peonies, strawberry milkshakes and the inside of conch shells. (f you hated the writing in Caraval you’re probably rolling your eyes at me right now) I have a habit of picking up every pink book I see, but my most recently acquired one was actually a gift from my friend Winter. It’s Emma, my favorite classic, in my my favorite color. I’m a little bit in love with it.
Describe yourself in three book characters?
Luna Lovegood: Strange, but kind. A day dreamer with her head in the clouds.
Vasya: A rebellious wild child. Loved the forest, old stories and (stolen) honey cakes.
Nina Zenik: Queen of desserts, self-love and shameless flirting.
Hyped books – yes or no? If yes – what’s the most hyped book you’ve read? If no – what’s the most hypes book you’ve decided not to read?
Maybe! I’m often uninterested in hyped book at first glance, but the hype wears me down sometimes. The Cruel Prince is the perfect embodiment of my relationship with hyped books. I usually enjoy them more than I was expecting too, but not as much as the hype said I would.
Recommend a book for each season!
🌸 I Capture the Castle – reading it made me feel like a flower garden on the first days of spring.
🌞 I’ll Give You the Sun – it’s warm and bright like a day on the beach.
🍂 An Enchantment of Ravens – a love letter to autumn colors.
❄️ The Bear and the Nightingale – a tale told in front of the fire, on the coldest winter’s day.
Name one book that wrecked your emotionally.
Tiger Lily! It’s beautiful and soul crushing. I could barely read the ending trough the ocean of tears pouring out of my eyes and I sobbed for like 15 minutes after. I swear only a book lover would say “This destroyed me emotionally” and mean that as the highest form of compliment.
Name one book you would recommend with tea and cookies.
I’m not a big tea person (cocoa for me, please), but I love cookies and Lara Jean’s the cookie queen so it has to be To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
What is your guilty pleasure book?
I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, we should never feel guilty for loving what we love. A book doesn’t have to be deep and important to mean the world to someone or fill their hearts with joy. But just to answer the question, I have a whole Parisian book shelf which makes me feel pretty basic. But I love it! A lot!
Favorite dessert and a book that reminds you of it.
Picking one favorite dessert is almost as hard as picking one favorite book. But let’s say lemon mousse since it reminds me of sunshine and my grandma and Emergency Contact since it’s light and sweet, but not too sweet.
Are you a procrastinator? What books have you been procrastinating reading?
I am a procrastinator about most things – but not books! At least I haven’t been since school when I often passed on my assigned reading because I thought my teacher’s book choices reflected her severe lack of imagination. Or in other words: they didn’t have magic, witches or dragons in them. These days if I haven’t red a book yet, it’s only because I haven’t been in the right mood for it yet.
