The Cookie Book Tag

thecookie

Not tagged. I was going through my WordPress feed when I stumbled across the blog post of Ann @ Ann’s Reading Corner about The Ultimate Book tag. Curious and so I checked the entire post. When I reached the end of it, I saw some book tag related posts from her blog and one of them was The Cookie Book Tag. It seemed fun and interesting and so I decided to do it!

RULES

  • Be sure to link back your post to the person who tagged you (which is not applicable in my case, since I tagged myself lol) and be sure to link it back to Nicole @ Sorry, I’m Booked who personally curated this cute book tag.
  • Pick a book that corresponds to the cookie’s theme.
  • Tag 1-3 people.
  • But most especially, have fun!

THE COOKIES

  • Chocolate Chip: A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed (interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago)
  • Thin Mints: A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read (your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere)

A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed

1622

A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare

I fell in love with this book ever since we were tasked to do a play for it back in my last year in primary school. I forgot if we were really required to read the book in full but I know that I made an effort to do so because the synopsis piqued my interest. Even bought my own copy of it ’cause I was so into it. Wild ride of events with crazy characters (Helena, Demetrius, Hermia, Lysander, Oberon, Titania, Puck and more) awaits you. But aside from the entanglements that happened, one thing that I could not forget the most about this book is the Fairies’ Lullaby.

1934

I just have to include Little Women by Louisa May Alcott in this category too. This book was actually one of the first non-kiddie books that I’ve ever read. My grandmother own a copy of it (I remember that it’s book cover is in color yellow with ladies gathering around) and I saw it in one of her desks. I picked it up and read it. It was later on that I found out that there was a movie adaptation for it which I also love. I love Beth and I’m still sad about what happened to her. 😦

A Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read

The Illuminae Files Series (Illuminae and Gemina) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I noticed that there’s so much hype, love towards this series and I’ve just been hearing nothing but praises about it from my fellow readers. Even bloggers. Basing it from how the books were presented, I can feel it and I know that it’s such a bad-ass series. I hope I can come out of my Young Adult – SciFi – Fantasy reading funk and be able to read this.

Rapid Fire Book Tag

Radpid Fire Book Tag

Not tagged. But I recently followed Tea With Mermaids and saw that she did this, Rapid Fire Book Tag. I thought it was quick and fun to answer and so I made my own blog post. GirlReading over Youtube originally created it, so be sure to drop by her account and watch as she answers these questions.

Question 1: E-Book or Physical Book? 

I would go for E-Book since lately I’ve been reading more through my Kindle.

Question 2 : Paperback or Hardback?

Paperback. It’s light and easier to carry around.

Question 3 : Online or In-Store Book Shopping?

Lately, I’ve only been enjoying through online shopping. But still nothing beats the In-Store Book Shopping experience and be googly eyes with physical copies. Heaven. 

Question 4 : Trilogies or Series?

Trilogies.

Question 5 : Heroes or Villains?

Villains. Because most of the times they come across as more complex characters than heroes.

Question 6 : A book you want everyone to read?

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma (Hahahahahahahahahuhu just because…)

Question 7 : Recommend an underrated book?

In this Life by Christine Brae

Question 8 : The last book you finished?

Fall like Rain by Ana Tejano and I highly recommend it!

Question 9 :The Last Book(s) You Bought?

Prep and Prejudice by Miren B. Flores and Fall like Rain by Ana Tejano
