Thanks to Shelumiel @ Bookish & Awesome for tagging me!
I suppose considering my location (NYC); one would assume I take advantage of every Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts that’s in my way. Right? Wrong.
I drink herbal teas and hot cocoa. I will drink the occasional mocha latte or macchiato (if I’m desperate).
Black: A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This kind of absolute poverty was definitely a harsh reality when you compare it to the poverty in our daily society.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I love this series. LOVE IT. That Crown of Midnight ending, anyone??? HEIR OF FIRE? ROWAN? But you gotta admit; as well done as it was—starting with those prison scenes and time she tried to [spoiler] was a bit difficult. I didn’t find it slow though—-maybe a bit hard to read.
Peppermint Mocha: A book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.
Now, this may not be THE book; but I’ve seen it on a few winter TBRs (okay, maybe just Paper Fury’s) and it totally fits. Tons of hype.
SNOW LIKE ASHES BY SARA RAASCH
I absolutely loved this thing of awesomeness; written by 2014 debut Sara Raasch (@seesarawrite)—it is powerful, badass, and was hands down the best debut novel I read in 2014—or just 2014, PERIOD.
Double Shot of Expresso: A book that kept you on the edge of your seat room start to finish.
MORE HAPPY THAN NOT by Adam Silvera
I can’t even talk about this book.
It makes me hurt like whoa.
Proud of you if you got that reference!
If you didn’t, why haven’t you bought the book yet?

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This book was exquisite. I loved the plot twists; the writing, and the characters. I LOVE a good villain—especially so well written.
Hot chocolate: A favorite children’s book.
If hot chocolate is for children, I’ll be a 7 year old forever.
My two favorite children series are:
Junie B. Jones
Ahhh, the nostalgia. The Junie B. Jones series was the first chapter book series that truly grew my love for reading. I even had purple glasses when I was 9 because I just had to look like Junie B. Jones.
A Series Of An Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.
It taught me a good lesson. “Never trust anyone has not brought a book with them.” It was my first long series. It was the first series where I looked up all the words; and actually applied them to my vernacular because I found them intriguing. Ersatz, vile, cavernous, austere, penultimate (which became my favorite)…
Starbucks: a book you see everywhere
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I bought the first two books, and flew through them. It reminded me a lot of The Hunger Games; and although the protagonist is fickle—that actually makes for quality entertainment a) if you’ve watched the Epic Reads videos and b) because it’s so clearly a political representation of the U.S.
A Hipster Coffee Shop: give an indie author a shoutout.
I haven’t read indie books.
Shoutout to these authors for writing awesome books, though?
Natalie C. Parker
…and David Arnold, once I get my hands on Mosquitoland!
Oops! I accidentally got Decaf: a book you were expecting more from.
The Jewel by Amy Ewing
It wasn’t terrible. In fact, it had an interesting enough plot, a good villain (female, for a change); and lovely characters! However, it didn’t live up to the hype; and I was so excited for it.
Like super supportive excited.
Wasn’t that an awkward bummer.
The Perfect Blend: a book that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying
Unleashed by Sophie Jordan
There were just some moments in this book that didn’t make sense. Like a sudden disappearance of three important MCs…and the sudden Romeo and Juliet romance sans the tragic suicide…but it was a satisfying end to the Uninvited series; however I truly didn’t believe a sequel was necessary. The first book had a perfect ending.
Green Tea: a book or series that is quietly beautiful
Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
If you weren’t aware—I’m a total art geek. Which means I’m into painting, I’m into writing loads of poetry, I’m a theater geek; I listen to a lot of indie, dark, electronic music or whatever brings feeling. And the art museum (which competes with a library/bookstore) is my heaven.
This book is full of awesome poetry; and just means ALOTTTT to me. And what the author signed which also means ALOTTTT: “For Wesaun, your words matter.”
Chai Tea: a book that makes you dream of far places
I dream of everything. My head isin the clouds. Because, you see, “My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.” It’s a metaphor, dear.
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
I find this book made me dream of far off places because it’s such a philosophical novel. I read this in one of my darker times; and that quote hit me like a lightning bolt. It seemed to explain everything I was feeling at that given moment.
Earl Grey: your favorite classic.
Romeo and Juliet.
Don’t even get me started on how or why this play changed me.
Tag people? Ahhh—all the people I would tag are doing it…
Mishie @ Bookish Things
You, if you wanna do it, you should. It’s fun!
Are you the classic city human who drinks coffee like its your life support? Or are you more of a sleepy herbal tea/cocoa drinking writer like me?
Lemme know in the comments!
