The Cookie Book Tag (Round 2)

It's December 25th, so Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! I hope everyone has a great day with family and or friends. The year is almost over, and today we're going to do a book tag. It has been over a year since Adri and I first participated in the Cookie Book Tag. Today, we're going to do it again to see how our answers do and don't differ. Before we begin, here are the more technical details about the tag.

The Cookie Book Tag was created by Nicole @ Sorry, I’m Booked. And you can check out the original tag post here: Sorry, I’m Booked, The Cookie Book Tag.

The rules…
  • Link back to the person who tagged you + the creator of this tag 
  • Pick a book that corresponds with the cookies theme 
  • Have fun 
  • Tag 1-3 people

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)

Breana: I actually have two answers for this one. This year I finally read Dracula by Bram Stoker and Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. They're currently two of my favorite classic novels.

Adri: Oh that's an easy one. My answer is Remember Me by Marry Higgins Clarke. It was just lying on one of my mom's bookshelves, and I thought to myself "Why haven't I read that?". So I did, and I loved it. 

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)

Breana: I'm not looking to join a fandom, but I have a couple of books that I want to read: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow and Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. 

Adri: I don't really have an answer for this question, because the hyped book I was looking forward to is the one I'm currently reading. It's called You're Not Listening by Kate Murphy. 

Shortbread: An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of

Breana: I think the fact that I've read Katherine Arden's middle grade series and fantasy trilogy says a lot about how much of a fan of her work I am. So there's that.

Adri: I have a trio of authors to talk about. I got started with Stephanie Burgis's work after reading the Kat, Incorrigible series and have been interested ever since. Then there's Tony DiTerlizzi who wrote one of my favorite series: The Search for WondLa trilogy. And finally Sandra Burke, who has written several books on fashion, from illustration to business.  I can't get enough of Burke's books.

Samoas/ Caramel DeLites: An Emotional Rollercoaster (this cookie was hard … so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you)

Breana: The Missing of Clairdelune by Christelle Dabos had so many twists and turns, and that ending gets me every time. 

Adri: If I told you how I felt about The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides, it would be a spoiler.

Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover

Breana: In 2019, I didn't really pay attention to book covers like that. I mainly read what I wanted to read.

Adri: Out of everything I read recently, I have yet to encounter this problem.

Tagalongs/ Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)

Breana: A Dream So Dark by L.L. McKinney. I went in with no expectations, and it ended up being one of my favorite sequels of 2019.

Adri: Plus Style by Suzan Nanfeldt. Since it's an older book, I really wasn't expecting anything other than basic styling advice. However I did learn some things from it that I hadn't thought of.

Snickerdoodles: A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving

Breana: Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones is such a fantastic story. I reread it earlier in 2019, and I still appreciate it just as much as when I first read it four years ago. 

Adri: My answer for this one is The Theory of Fashion Design by Helen L. Brockman. It was published in 1965, and I actually haven't finished reading it. However it's everything I'm looking for about dresses, and though it is outdated I will always reread it.

Bonus: Choose a cookie I didn’t list and make up a question!

Our question from 2018: Monster Cookies have bold flavors and a long and varied list of ingredients such as M&Ms, chocolate chips, peanut butter, oats, and even sometimes raisins. It’s like a handful of cookie types mashed into one monster of a cookie. So… Monster cookie: name a book with a bold and whimsical title or a book title with four or more words.

Breana: Down Among the Sticks and Bones, A Dream So Dark, The Winter of the Witch.

Adri: The Princess Who Flew With Dragons.

That's about it for today. We tag you to do the cookie book tag to see how your answers differ (if you've done it before), and if you're curious about our original take on the tag visit the post HERE
