The Cake Book Tag!

I've seen this tag around, never did it and then forgot about it, and then yesterday I saw Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight post her answers and I thought 'huh, I should really have a go at this!'

A book that was a little slow to start off but really picked up as it went along

by Geraldine Brooks

I had a bit of trouble thinking of something for this one because a lot of the books I read are quite slow-building stories, and I really enjoy slow reads. Year of Wonders is an absolutely gorgeous book, and for the most part it's a rather slow book and then suddenly, towards the end, it just takes this turn. Very worth reading!

A book that had a rich, great plot

by Neil Gaiman

This was my very first read of 2014, and ended up being one of the best things I read last year, too. There's certainly a reason this is regarded as Gaiman's masterpiece, and I can't wait for the TV adaptation!

A book you thought was going to be bad but actually turned out quite enjoyable

by Robin LaFevers

What can I say? I didn't expect to enjoy this book all that much, and I ended up really, really enjoying it. 

A sugary sweet book

by Jenny Colgan

Ha. See what I did there? This is a very cute book, and worth a read if you're a fan of contemporary.

A book that covered every single element that you enjoy about a book (funny moments, action moments, sad moments, etc.)

by Mira Grant

You all know how much I adore this book. This was my favourite book of 2014 and one of my favourite reads of all time and I love it.

A book series that you can kind of turn back to for a little pick me up when you're feeling down

by Marissa Meyer

Now obviously I love Harry Potter - if I had to pick an all time favourite series then that would be it, without question - but if I start re-reading Harry Potter then I want to re-read the entire series. If I want to just dip in and out of something, however, then it's The Lunar Chronicles I turn to; lately if I ever need a pick me up I re-read the scene where Cinder and Kai are finally reunited in Cress, because it gives me all the happy feels.

The Cherry On Top
Your favourite book this year so far

by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I loved this book. It was exquisite and unexpected and I loved reading it, I was genuinely quite distressed when it was over. Highly recommended! You can check out my review here!

I Tag:


  1. Ohh yay! I am glad you decided to do this one! Some of the prompts were hard, no? I am excited that you loved Signal to Noise, that one is on my TBR and sounds so very good! And I KNEW Feed would make this list ;) As soon as my ARCs calm down, I HAVE to make it a priority to read Feed! Very fun post :)

    1. They were! Haha, I imagine everyone's getting sick of me mentioning Feed by now. :P I hope enjoy it and Signal to Noise when you get around to them - they're both amazing!

      And thank you! ^_^ I wanted something a little more colourful.

  2. OH and I meant to tell you- I ADORE the new design and colors! So perfect for spring!

  3. Great answers Jess! Thanks for tagging me, my post will be up tomorrow hopefully. I really need to read the Lunar Chronicles as everyone loves it!

    1. I think you'd really like The Lunar Chronicles - they're a lot of fun!
