The Cheesy Goodness Book Tag

You may (or may not … who am I to know what you are thinking) have noticed that Tuesdays and Fridays have been suspiciously void of #CurrentlyWatching posts. I promise, they are not gone for good, but I had noticed a decline in readership of those posts and they are A LOT of work, so I just wanted to give you all a breather. I may have overdone it with the recommendations and I know that not everyone can watch as many shows as I do. I don’t even know how I do it. Anyway, long story short, #CurrentlyWatching will be back but reduced to once per week. In the meantime I am here to do some other tags and features?

I saw the Cheesy Goodness Book Tag over at Kay’s blog Hammock of Books and I LOVE CHEESE SO MUCH (we are completely going to disregard that I am trying to consume less milk products, because cheese will still forever be my weakness). And, while I wasn’t personally tagged for this, there was an invitation for everyone who loves cheese to do this – queue my entry!

  • Have fun!

CHEDDAR: THE TRADITIONAL CHEESE | Name your favorite classic novel

Usually, I would say The Great Gatsby, but since that was Kay’s answer, I am going to dig deep and come up with something else. Classics really aren’t my specialty, you know? But I do adore Persuasion by Jane Austen, so that is not too shabby of an answer either.

SWISS: THE HOLE-Y CHEESE | Name an emotional roller coaster

While Midnight Sun definitely has its faults, you could laugh and cry equally with this book. That constitutes as an emotional roller coaster then, right?

BLUE CHEESE: THE CONTROVERSIAL CHEESE | Name an unpopular book opinion you have

I … okay, how do I say this? *deep breaths* I did not like The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I know it’s a modern classic. I know a lot of people love it and it has helped quite a few as well, but I could not connect to it at all and I blame the writing and not the story for that. Because when I actually watched the trailer for the movie, that evoked more emotion in me than the entire book.

BRIE: THE FAVORITE CHEESE | Name an author you always want more of

There’s a couple go-to authors I can never get enough of and it’s quite hard to choose from them all. However, I have read every. single. book Morgan Matson has written and there are no regrets there whatsoever.

GOUDA: THE DUTCH CHEESE | Name a book that makes you want to travel

Call Me By Your Name made me want to go back to Italy. I’ve been there and I wasn’t in love with the place I specifically went to. But books like that always make me want to disappear in the country side for a couple of months, get to know the locals and learn the language.

I’d be Elio, just sitting at some piazza and reading and enjoying the sun. Also, Italy has good cheese, right?

AMERICAN: THE FAKE CHEESE | Name your least favorite book

Wow … that’s actually a really tough one! I checked Goodreads and I gave The Homecoming a solid 1 star-review. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that’s rare, but for the life of me, I could not tell you what happened in that book. I am good at erasing the memory of things I did not like.

COLBY JACK: THE MIXED CHEESE | Name your favorite ship

Again with the hard questions!?!? I am very bad at choosing just one thing/person/ship/whaterver … buuut, Sevro and Victra (Red Rising series) are the weirdest yet one of the best couples out there.

*actual life tips Victra would give*

MOZZARELLA: THE SIMPLE CHEESE | Name an old favorite you’ll never stop loving

The Thief Lord is one of my childhood favorites and I will never not love it. Same goes for the Inkheart trilogy. Basically everything Cornelia Funke was my jam when I was younger.

PEPPER JACK: THE SPICY CHEESE | Name a book you can’t judge by its cover

Disregard this odd cover choice for My Lady Jane! I am so, so, so, so glad it is not the only one available, but that cover just totally ruins the vibe for me.

MUENSTER: THE MONSTER CHEESE | Name a villain you wish would never have the joy of eating cheese again

Since I just finished To Kill a Kingdom, I can say that I hate the Sea Queen with a passion. I don’t know if she lives off of anything other than her enemies’ tears, but now she is getting NO cheese, not once, not ever.


I am going to make this very simple since I wasn’t technically tagged myself either, I am opening up the possibility for everyone who loves cheese to do the tag as well. You are hereby tagged, cheese lovers!

What did you think of the tag and my answers? Can you relate??

  1. Oh great answers for this tag Kat. 🙂 Yeah I’m not a massive fan of that cover for My Lady Jane, I have the other one on my bookshelves and I’m glad I do because if the other cover was the only one available I doubt I’d have picked up the book at all. Also yes I love Sevro and Victra, I actually kind of ship them more than Darrow and Mustang, and I always want more from Morgan Matson too. She’s one of my favourite YA contemporary authors.
    Again great answers for this tag, and great post too. 🙂 ❤

  2. I haven’t read any Morgan Matson?! AH I desperately want to. Okay and I still haven’t read/watched Call Me By Your Name either oops haha. I am excited to get to it though.

  3. YES MORGAN MATSON. I love her books so much – I can’t wait for her latest release to come, I’m sure it will be just as amazing as all of her other books. SO. IMPATIENT!
    I think we already talked about this before, but yes, that cover for My Lady Jane is terrible and would not make me want to pick up the book at all haha, I much prefer the other cover 🙂
    And yeah, the Sea Queen does NOT deserve any cheese ever, hahaha.
    That’s such a fun tag ahha 🙂 x

    • There’s just no way Save the Date isn’t going to be awesome haha Morgan never disappoints!
      I loved answering this with cheese in mind, but since I am really trying to stay off milk products, it was hard! I was craving cheese so much after this.

  4. Ooh I love cheese too!! (cheese will *always* be my weakness, so I won’t even pretend that I would ever give it up) Ahh I love Persuasion!! I think that’s fair enough if you didn’t connect with the writing in Perks (or in any book to be fair, cos that’s so subjective). Ooh Sevro and Victra- good one! I loved the Thief Lord as a child too 😀 And I agree about the sea queen!!

    • It has been scientifically proven that cheese has an ingredient that is addictive, kinda like heroin ahaha so yeah, cheese lovers for life? Although I am trying to cut down on cow milk products, I am still eating other cheeses.
      Sevro and Victra are always in the shadows of Mustang Darrow, but they are actually awesome and need appreciation haha
      The Thief Lord was just so precious!!! Also, when I watched the movie, I am pretty sure that was when I fell in love with Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

  5. I’m glad you liked the tag!! Some of our answers are so similar haha. I too did not love The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It may be because I read it when i was 13 and was too young, but I don’t remember connected either. I also love love Morgan Matson, and am so excited for her new book!
