The Coffee Book Tag

coffee book tag

I was tagged a while ago by Alyssa at The Ultimate Book Geek to do the Coffee Book Tag, but I’m still catching up on all my tags at the moment, so it’s a bit overdue, but here it is anyway! I’ve got a long list of tags to do so I’m going to try and do one every other day now! I hope you all enjoy this one. ❀

Thank you very much to Alyssa for tagging me. Her blog is brilliant and I would urge you to go and check it out!


Black: A Series that is tough to get into, but has hardcore fans.


I tried to read the first book but I found it uninteresting and just not my thing, but I understand that it has been a very popular series.

Peppermint Mocha: A Book or series that get more popular during the winter/festive time of the year.

classicsI always love to read classical books in the winter-time; books like Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

Hot Chocolate: A Favourite Children’s book.

I like a lot of children’s books, but these are probably my favourites. A couple of years ago, I was obsessed with adventure and mystery books, so Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books and Murder Most Unladylike were right up my street. Harry Potter is just appealing to everyone, I think, and there is such a lot of charm in Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland.

Double-shot of Espresso: A book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Miss Peregrine’s Home of Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I originally read it last October, and I just loved every single page. I recently read the second book in the series and felt exactly the same – I can’t wait to read the third book in the trilogy: Library of Souls when it comes out in paperback.

Star Bucks: A book you see everywhere.

wpid-21480930.jpgI see this book literally everywhere: in bookshops, charity shops, online, on everyone’s blogs. And I’m not surprised: Gone Girl is a pretty amazing book, but personally I think I prefer some of Gillian Flynn’s other books: Sharp Objects is my favourite.

The Hipster Coffee Shop: A Book by an Indie Author (Shout-Out)

I don’t actually think I’ve read any books by indie authors, so I can’t actually answer this one.

Oops! I accidentally got Decaf: A Book You were expecting more from.

This book was a big disappointment for me. I was expecting a much bigger plot-line and better characters, but in all honesty: nothing happened! I put the book down feeling very dissatisfied and I would certainly never read it again or recommend it to anyone, unless you feel like reading a really uneventful book.

I fairness, the characters were well-developed, and the writing was good, it was just the plot that was very poorly executed.

The Perfect Blend: a series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.

selection-seriesI’ve only actually read The Selection and half of The Elite so far, but I’m getting the impression that it is a mixture of both bitter and sweet. They’re really easy to read books, and although they have their faults, they’re a bit of a guilty-pleasure. πŸ™‚

Green Tea: a book or series that is quietly beautiful.


This book carries some very powerful messages, but it is beautiful and charming all at the same time. It’s a fantastic book.

Chai Tea: a book or series that makes you dream of far away places.


Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland – such an adventurous and imaginative book.

Earl Grey: a favourite classic.



Oh, I just love this book. The characters are some of the best I have ever come across in fiction. And here’s a bonus fact: it was the first book I everΒ reviewed here on my blog (two years ago now! – where has the time gone?)

I’m Tagging:

    I like this tag! Great answers.
    I bought Sharp Object this week, but I haven’t read Gone Girl. There’s too much hype around it and I watched the movie first, so I lost interest.

    I agree with you on Gillian Flynn’s books. I started with Gone Girl and then read her other books. I thought both of them were more interesting and faster-paced than Gone Girl. I enjoyed reading them way more. πŸ™‚

      Yeah, I feel exactly the same. ‘Sharp Objects’ and ‘Dark Places’ deal with much more interesting issues and characters in my opinion. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! πŸ™‚
