I saw that my friend Marianne from Boricuan Bookworms posted this cute meme this morning, and while I wasn’t tagged, I figured that I would give it a shot and see what I come up with!
Dark Chocolate: A book that covers a dark topic. (abuse, domestic violence, rape, loneliness, bullying, death etc):
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson covers the topics of sexual assault and bullying. The main character, Melinda is sexually assaulted at a party before she begins her 9th grade year and as a result of her calling the police, she is bullied and taunted by her peers to the point where she stops speaking altogether. Although this book is about a difficult topic, it has helped many victims of sexual assault speak up about what happened to them.
White Chocolate: Your favorite light hearted/humorous read
Attachments by the wonderful Rainbow Rowell is the funniest book I have read in a really long time! While looking through books that I’ve read in the past couple of years, I realized that I haven’t read many funny books.
Do you have any light hearted/ humorous books that you recommend?
Milk Chocolate: A Book that Has a Lot of Hype that You’re Dying to Read
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor. I am currently reading Days of Blood and Starlight, and have quite a bit left in the book, but I have heard such amazing things about this book and I love the world that Taylor has created.
Chocolate With a Caramel Center: Name a book that made you feel all gooey in the middle while you were reading it
I know Rainbow Rowell is on here once already, but Eleanor & Park gave me all the feels. All of them. I laughed, I cried, I even got quite pissed at one point. But, overall this book is a wonderful, beautiful, and heart-wrenching read.
Water Free Kit Kat: Name a Book That Surprised You Lately
Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I had been hearing about this book and it’s sequels all over Booktube and on blogs and I thought that it might just be one of those books that would fall flat. I’d read so many retellings before that didn’t impress me, but WOW! I loved this book (and it’s sequels).
Snickers: A Book That You Are Going Nuts About
One of it’s sequels made the list already, but I am going crazy for Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I love the beautiful writing and the way it brings two very different worlds together. I’ve been talking about this book non-stop since I finished reading it.
Hot Chocolate With Cream and Marshmallows: What Book Would You Turn to for a Comforting Read?
I often return to To Kill a Mockingbird when I need a familiar and comforting read. While some of the subject matter is difficult, I love Scout and Jem and their innocence and imagination. This book just reminds me of childhood and a simpler time in life.
Box of Chocolates: What series have you read that you feel has a wide variety and a little something for everyone?
The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan is one of those series that I feel MG, YA, and adult readers can enjoy. It is jam-packed with action and drama, yet has plenty of mythology and fantasy. It’s a great way to learn about different Greek and Roman myths.
