The Coffee Book Tag


Summer @Xingsings is always so sweet and wants to know more about me! Which is awesome and I love her for that! This time she tagged me to do the Coffee Book Tag and I am happy to oblige, even though I don’t drink coffee. Yeah, I am not kidding! Not even the really sugary thing they sell at Starbucks. I am TEAM TEA all the way! (Or Hot Chocolate, depending on my mood!)


A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

I would have loved to steal Summer’s answer (Game of Thrones or Outlander) for it, but I am trying to be original here … I know that it’s sad but somehow I could never really get into the books for Gossip Girl as much as I liked the show. I even have 7 of them, but I could just as easily forget all about them and wouldn’t mind, the characters were just so different.


774132518081809A book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.

I’d say Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares or Landline works best around Christmas. I am not sure how many people are aware of them being during that time, but I think the stories have the most effect during that festive season.


A favorite children’s book.

I’ve mentioned Felix and his letter one too many times now, so instead I am choosing The English Roses by Madonna. My grandma gave it to me as a gift because I’ve nagged everyone about NEEDING to have this book. I read it within minutes, because it’s a children’s book and not very long, but I still loved it.


A book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Golden Son! After Red Rising I wanted to trust people, but knew that I shouldn’t … it was (as I’ve mentioned countless times now) an exhilarating read! Oh Morning Star, when will you finally arrive at my doorstep?


A book you see everywhere.

The Girl on the Train – even though I haven’t read it yet myself, it’s very popular at every bookstore I’ve worked at so far, so I see it all. the. time.


A book by an indie author (a shoutout).

I’d like to give a shoutout to my friend Rami Ungar. He is a fellow blogger and Whovian and we are always surprised about how well our friendship works, considering that our interests are almost polar opposites sometimes. I read one of his books last year (Reborn City, read my review here) and I have to say that I enjoyed it more than I expected to (which I do realise sounds mean, but had more to do with me being afraid of the genre he chose and not his writing).


A book you were expecting more from

Unfortunately the first book that I thought of was The Next Together by Lauren James … it wasn’t terrible, but it had the potential to be just so, so much better.


A book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying.

Again, I would really like to go with Summer’s answer (The Infernal Devices) but I will rack my brain and think of something else! In the end, I think that the Inkworld trilogy took me on a great journey. None of the sequels were as good as Inkheart, but that’s details. It did have a happy ending after all.


A book or series that is quietly beautiful.

Quietly? Maybe not so much. Unique, gorgeous, beautifully poetic? Definitely! Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi was the only way to go!


A book or series that makes you dream of far off places.

I think I’d like to go with the book I am currently reading: Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini. It takes the MC into a different dimension where our world got to grow more naturally and freely. Everything is very organic there and not so clogged, I really like the thought of that.


Favorite classic.

Tough one … probably Persuasion by Jane Austen. (Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and The Great Gatsby are awesome as well though!)

  1. Hehe, how ironic is it that I just rewatched Persuasion for the umpteenth time and saw that gif? And oh gosh, Gossip Girl is a perfect choice! I remember that one being quite a popular series at the end of middle school and beginning of high school. It was probably due to the show and everything… And gah, I still need to read the Shatter Me series! It sounds so good and so many readers have recommended it!

    • I once went on a buying spree and bought all the Austen-adaptations on DVD hahaha I really liked this one. I’d say we are mentally linked somehow hahaha
      And thanks! I think Gossip Girl was way too hyped as a book series, I loved the show though.
      Shatter Me is beautiful. It’s not so much about the story, but way more about the writing and the characters.


  2. WE WANT TEA, WE WANT TEA! Tea is wonderful, and way more lovely than coffee will ever be in my personal opinion – of course, tea can’t keep you awake when you’re tired and in need of an energy boost… BUT HEY.
    I loved reading this tag! Gossip Girl was such an enjoyable TV show, the ending was perfect and had me crying like a little baby.

    • Tea does have a little bit of caffeine as well, just not that much of an amount that it makes a difference. But depending on how long you let it rest it can also wake you up a little. Tea is magic that way!
      Gossip Girl was life for me for a very long time!

  3. Black is DEFINITELY The Raven Cycle for me because I cannot get into those books no matter how hard I try! All my favorite bookish people love them, and I CANNOT! It’s so sad! Double Shot Of Espresso would be The 5th Wave because a guy in my class was reading it and thinks my baby Ben is going to die….. 😦 And Green Tea would be If I Stay because the writing in that was BEAUTIFUL, even if I don’t like green tea (even though I’m Chinese – what a disgrace I am).

    • Oh, I hate it when all my friends love books that I don’t … it makes me super sad as well!
      Hahaha I don’t drink coffee and answered all the questions, so it’s totally okay if you don’t like green tea!
