Let’s be honest, what’s better than blogging? Blogging with food! Personally, blogging burns so many of calories that I need to snack whenever I write reviews or have a commenting session. So, armed with a yogurt cake and a brownie (again), I am now ready to hit the pastry table! Thanks so much to Anna @ My Bookish Dream for tagging me to do this yummy tag!
Warning: you better have food with you to read this.
I know. You thought Harry Potter would win. I did too. Then I realized it was too easy, so I decided to go with The Raven Boys. Don’t start protesting yet! I know I said I did not like the second book. I am solely talking about the first book in the series here! This croissant was difficult to find as I tend to disagree with the general opinion, but most people liked The Raven Boys (except for Jill, my bestie who keeps hating every book I love!).
The subjects developed in Descriptions of Heaven makes for a difficult read, but the writing and the story itself make it so worth it. I am glad I read it. I was afraid to find maudlin paragraphs, ghosts of characters and clichés, but the author’s prose is spot-on and rings true. He succeeded in the difficult task to talk about the essence of life and death. Don’t let my words scare you, give it a chance!
My expectations were so high for The Fire Child that they kept me reading despite the many similarities with the author’s first book and the characters I couldn’t connect to. I wanted to love it, but it felt like a pale copy of The Ice Twins.
When I was finally convinced to give The Maze Runner a go, I thought it would be a weird story full of nonsense filled with weird and cliché characters I would never connect with. Turned out I was hooked from the first page and discovered a real adventure with solid foundation (Too bad the author destroyed everything in The Death Cure)
A book with scientific concepts that manage to keep you interested instead of making you doze off! The Laptev Virus has an interesting writing that makes all scientific nonsense somehow understandable to a silly brain like mine. For this reason only, it deserves more attention!
I agree with Anna’s answer, A Game of Thrones is complex (or so I heard because I never finished the first book). But in order to keep this fun, I’ll go with any classic written before the 20th. The writing makes reading look like a never-ending sport session for brain. What’s the classic you find the most challenging?
The book was okay, the writing was simple, the story was sad, but for me it was the performances from Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts who gave life to those characters and made me cry a pool of tears. It still does.
Also, a Napoleon is a mille-feuille in France. I hate it when pastries lose their names!
This book was full of hope and life There’s something about the story that screams bittersweet. If you don’t know it, give it a go! I was surprised by the idea, and it works pretty well.
98% of the books I read take place everywhere but in France, so I decided to change the rule a bit and went for a book that takes place on a different planet!
Give me any food from the wizards world and I’m a happy girl!
I tag: everyone who got hungry while reading this!
