Foodie Book Tag: Books + Cookies

I wasn’t tagged in this, but I came across a post from The Sassy Book Geek and loved the idea of this, so I wanted to get in on this book tag as kickstart to using them myself. Plus, it combines two of my favorite things – books and food!

The Rules:

  • In addition to linking back to the person who tagged you, it would be awesome if you link back to Nicole’s original post!
  • Pick a book that corresponds to the cookie’s ‘theme’.
  • Tag 1-3 people.
  • Have fun!

The Cookies:

  • Chocolate Chip: A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed (interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago)
  • Thin Mints: A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read (your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere)
  • Shortbread: An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of
  • Samoas/Caramel DeLites: An Emotional Rollercoaster (this cookie was hard … so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you)
  • Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover
  • Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)
  • Snickerdoodles: A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving
  • Bonus: Choose a cookie I didn’t list and make up a question!

My Books:

Chocolate Chip: Jane Eyre is amazing, and when I first read it I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did.

Thin Mints: Pachinko by Min Jin Lee has been getting a lot of hype since it came out. I even got a free copy through a company book club, so I have no excuse not to dig in soon. Looking forward to it!

Shortbread: Fredrik Backman. I’ve only read 2 of his books, but I loved them both! Looking forward to reading more, especially Beartown (which was almost my Thin Mints choice.)

Samoas/Caramel DeLites: A Walk to Remember. This was before I realized how formulaic Mr. Sparks can be, but I literally laughed out loud reading this book and of course it made me cry too. Still one of my favorites.  bookcover-680x1020.jpg

Oreos: I thought Welcome to Braggsville had an awesome cover, and though we had a great book club discussion around it, the narrative style didn’t do it for me. I wasn’t a fan.

Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties: Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this one (another book club selection), but I ended up really enjoying it! Really immersive story-telling, interesting world creation.

Snickerdoodles: This is easy – I could read Harry Potter over and over again! In a world, where I rarely re-read books, I have re-read the HP series several times. (I don’t own this set below, but it’s my dream set!

My Bonus Cookie (courtesy of the Girl Scouts) – Lemonades: A book that’s refreshing, whether it be a new outlook, a fun idea/concept, or just a breezy read to cleanse the palate

For me, Where’d You Go Bernadette fits this bill. Semple writes in a unique style, and I found it to be a humorous, quick read.

    This tag honestly made me hungry… But I loved it hahaha
    And OMG I would totally want that HP set too <3 It looks amazing!
    I haven't read your other mentions yet but I definitely want to try more from Gaiman. Good Omens was the only thing I've read of him so far, and it was a collab with Pratchett so I'm not sure I got his style completely.
    Great post, Megan, and thank you so much for tagging me! 😊

      It’s a great tag 🙂

      Gaiman has been a little hit or miss for me, but I really really enjoyed that one, and so did most of my book club. (We picked it for a “spooky” book to read around Halloween – though it wasn’t really scary.)

      Looking forward to seeing your picks!

        Oh he’s definitely Halloween worthy hahaha
        I’ll probably pick up Coraline and American Gods next, now that the show came out. I’m really intrigued!

          Coraline was really good, though definitely creepy! I actually just read American Gods b/c of the show (great minds!) and wasn’t as into as I thought I’d be. However, I do think it would make an interesting show – I bet it would have amazing visuals.

          My recent post on the book here (no spoilers): https://hungry-bookworm.com/2017/05/04/american-gods-beef-pasties/

            I just checked your review out 🙂 I’m going to give the show and the book a shot, just not sure in what order though XD
