Many thanks to Lauren @ Always Me for tagging me to do this post! This post includes a question for cake ingredients and you have to choose a corresponding book. So without further ado... My book cake!
a book that was a little slow to start with but really picked up as it went along
One that comes to mind is Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake. I ❤︎ Anna Dressed in Blood, so I was surprised when this book started off a lot slower and wasn't as creepy/gory/scary. But there was a turning point and everything I loved about the first book was suddenly back.
a book that had a really rich and great plot
I love Daughter of Smoke and Bone and this book was no different, except I feel like things started to get a lot more intense and were a lot bigger than just Karou and Akiva.
a book that you thought was going to be bad but actually turned out quite enjoyable
This book was such a surprise and I didn't even realise I was enjoying it until I couldn't put it down (or more truthfully, minimize it during class). One of my favourite contemporaries for sure.
a sugary sweet book
Angel Cake even has a sweet title, so it's perfect for this question. Plus the romance is adorable. If my memories are to be trusted.
a book that covered every single element that you enjoy in a book
(eg. funny moments, action moments, sad moments etc.)
I could have picked any of The Mortal Instruments books or The Infernal Devices books because for me, they have everything that I like in a book. They're funny, have some great characters, sad moments and action moments.
a book series that you can turn back to for a little pick me up when you're feeling down
This is definitely one of my guilty pleasure reads. I only read it for enjoyment and the nostalgia because it reminds me of easier times, when I first read it. And yeah, my first option was Harry Potter.
The Cherry On Top
your favourite book this year so far
It's a tie between Shadow and Bone and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. The difference is that I am yet to read the sequels to Shadow and Bone and to be honest I'm kind of scared to because of the negative feelings I've been getting about the next books in the trilogy. But the real reason I'm putting it off is because I want to reread Shadow and Bone because I loved it that much and I'm waiting to have sufficiently forgotten the details.
So that was the Book Cake tag! Thanks again to Lauren for tagging me! As per usual, I am unsure of who to tag, so I am tagging anyone who wants to do this - make sure you link me to your post in the comments! I would love to hear your responses.
