Ally recently posted the Cookie Book Tag and it sounded interesting so I decided to play along. Plus, I have been accused of being a cookie monster at times, so…
Chocolate Chip | A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed
Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. I don’t remember it much now, but I really enjoyed it.
Thin Mints | A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ and/or a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read
The Bear and the Nighingale by Katherine Arden. As with most hyped books, though, I’m afraid that I won’t like it and will be disappointed.
Shortbread | An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of
Seanan McGuire. Hands down.
Samoas | An Emotional Rollercoaster
The most recent book to fit this description is Diane Duane’s The Book of Night with Moon. It normally wouldn’t be as much up and down, but with my cat having health issues, it made it hard to read about other cats having trouble. And it is a well-written book, so it packs an emotional punch.
Oreos | A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover
On Fortune’s Wheel by Cynthia Voigt. I loved the story, but really… that cover is pretty awful…
Tagalongs / Peanut Butter Patties | A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected
Cosmos by Carl Sagan. I didn’t expect it to be so closely tied to the TV show by the same name. I thought it was going to be deeper and harder to connect to. I was pleasantly surprised by how accessible this one was.
Snickerdoodles | A Book You May Never Stop Rereading / Loving
- The Hobbit.
- The Westfalin Princesses trilogy.
- The Fire Rose.
- The Phantom Tollbooth.
Oh. I was supposed to pick just one? Oops.
Plus, I absolutely have to agree with some of the categories. I will never stop loving Snickerdoodles, for example, and the Oreo filling is so much better than the cookie. (Though, I get regular Oreos because when I’m actually eating them I like that filling-to-cookie ratio better than the double-stuff Oreo ratio.)
Yeah, just like the books, I can’t pick just one snickerdoodle, either.
I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you feel like playing along make sure to ping me so I can see what your answers are!
