A blog prompt that combines books and coffee is a win for me. I saw this prompt on Her Geekery and I felt compelled to respond to this tag. In between working at Caribou and writing an article interviewing a local artist from Minnesota, I haven’t been in the blogging mood until I saw this prompt.
Black: A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
I won’t go more into this because I talk about Game of Thrones a lot in my Fandom Friday post last week. This book series is so dense and it’s something I’m never going to get into. The fans of Game of Thrones are so passionate and dedicated to the books and the TV series and I admire that.
Hot Chocolate: A favorite children’s book.
Franklin the Turtle was the best. I read every single book there was and I still have a stuffed Franklin in my room somewhere. I always learned a lesson from each book and I always loved how the animals all got together to hang out. A couple of Franklin’s books still exist on my bookshelf because I can’t get myself to get rid of them yet.
Starbucks: A book you see everywhere.
This book has been rated the new Gone Girl. I actually haven’t read Gone Girl, but I have read every other novel that Gillian Flynn has wrote and I loved them all. I haven’t read this book yet, but I may pick it up sometime soon.
That Hipster Coffee Shop: A book by an indie author (a shout out)
A year ago when I went on a local Minnesota book hunt, I got this book free from an author that I had a conversation with. It was a really interesting novel examining hate groups. This book pissed me off in the fact that people in this society have so much hate towards different groups. It goes to show how that hate can destroy society especially with what happened in Orlando. This book was thrilling and I loved that it mentions places in my home state.
Oops! I Accidentally Got Decaf: A book you were expecting more from.
I just can’t continue in this series anymore. You can find my old review of this book in my book category on my blog. I can’t identify with Amy anymore she really just bothers me. This whole book was a huge disappointment and as soon as I finished this book I got rid of it because I knew I would never touch it again.
The Perfect Blend: A book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.
This is easily the saddest book I have ever read. It’s about a small town impacted by a school shooting. Once the book delves into the shooter and what he’s gone through, you almost start to sympathize with him. If you have ever been a victim of bullying or have been a bully yourself, this book is something you need to read. This is the only Jodi Picoult book I have read because I haven’t really gotten into any of her other books.
