The Chocolate Tag!

Hi guys! Today I have the super fun Chocolate Book Tag for you ^^ I absolutely love chocolate so when I saw this tag, I just knew I had to do it on my blog at some point. 

This tag was created by BookTuber A Daydreamer's Ramblings and you can watch her original video here. Also, if you want to know more about the books mentioned here, just click on the book title and you'll be redirected to each book's Goodreads page. 

Now get comfy, grab your favorite chocolate bar and let's begin ^^

Dark Chocolate - A book that covers a dark topic. 


Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. In this book, high school student Clay Jensen comes home to find a box sent to him, with inside a bunch of cassette tapes recorded by his classmate, Hannah, who committed suicide shortly before. In these tapes, Hannah gives the thirteen reasons for her suicide. This book covers the very dark topic of suicide and while there were times where I felt some things could have been done better, overall, this is a book many young readers would find eye opening and interesting. 

White Chocolate - Your favourite light-heart read.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. While all the Percy books are really fun, the first one is certainly the most light-heart. The characters are still very young and the stakes have yet to escalate to the level they do in later books. Also, no matter how many times I'll read this book, it'll always make me laugh ^^


Milk Chocolate - A book that has a lot of hype that you're dying to read.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I read and really enjoyed The Grisha trilogy in January and now I'm dying to get my hands on this new book by Bardugo. The book is set in the same world as the Grisha books and I simply can't wait to dive back into this universe with all its magic and intrigues. Also, so far, I've seen mainly positive reviews for Six of Crows so I'm fairly sure I'm going to enjoy is as well. 

Chocolate with a caramel center - Name a book that made you feel all gooey in the middle while you were reading it.

Clockwork Princess, the final book in the Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. This book was a rollar-coaster of emotions! It had everything I could have hoped for and then some. The author did a fantastic job with all the character arcs and the book made a fine little mess out of my heart. 


Wafer-free Kit-Kat - Name a book that surprised you lately.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. The author's previous books, the Shiver series, were originally so much compared to Twilight that I figured her books were probably not for me. Then, last January, I picked up The Raven Boys on a whim and... fell in love with it! I'm glad I decided to give the author's books an actual try because her writing is really beautiful. I can't say much about Shiver because I didn't read it, but as far as the Raven Cycle goes, I have to say that it's definitely on my favorite series list now.

Snickers - A book that you are going nuts about.

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater! I've now bought all the books in the series and simply.can't.wait. to get the final book in this series, which is coming out next month. I'm a bit sad the series is already over but I'm also really looking forward to seeing how it'll all go down. 


Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows - What book would you turn to for a comfort read?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay. Harry Potter itself is a series I would categorize as comfort read but what makes the illustrated edition a notch more special for me was the circumstances in which I was given the book. I actually got it as a graduation present from my little sister last year after completing my bachelor degree, which makes it extra special to me. Also, having a story that I already loved so much come to life through all these illustrations did add to the magic of the book. I sometimes take the book off my shelf just to flip through the pages to look at the illustrations. I'm really impatient to get my hands on the illustrated Chamber of Secrets. I'm sure it'll be equally stunning! 

Box of chocolates - What series have you read that you feel has a wide variety and a little something for everyone?

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. This is a fairy tale retelling set in a futuristic world with sophisticated androids, super advanced technology and cities on the moon. Whether you enjoy political drama, sci-fi, adventure or romance, you'll fall in love with this series because it has all of those things along with fantastic female leads, amazing world building and really beautiful writing!


So that's it for this tag guys. If like me, you love chocolate, consider yourself tagged! Just don't forget to link your post back to mine and to leave me a link to it so that I can go read it ^^

  2. This was such a cool tag! I really enjoyed reading all of your answers here. I think that Six of Crow is a book I am wanting to read like crazy too! I just want to finish the original trilogy first before I dive into it. I also think Percy Jackson is my funny light hearted read to turn to as well.
