The Cookie Book Tag

Saturday, August 19, 2017

I have discovered my dream tag. Cookies and books. All I need is a mug of cocoa and I'm practically in Heaven. Many thanks to Savannah of Scattered Scribblings for this tag. I just so happened to eat a few cookies during the month of July... So here I am. =) Ready to get started? 
Chocolate Chip // A book that never gets old
25873284
A book that never gets old... I've flailed over this book before, and I'll do it again. Joanne Bischof's To Get To You will never get old for me. Every time I open it, I find something else about it that I love and another quote to highlight. =) 
Dutch Snowballs // A book that gave you an unexpected surprise
29618105
I'm taking it that this doesn't mean nice surprises only.... *tears up* THIS WAS A BAD SURPRISE!!!!!!! A BAD BAD SURPRISE!!!!!! *more tears* The Lost Girl of Astor Street by Stephanie Morill was full of twists and turns and surprises. This book ruined me. Yet I still have no regrets. xD 
Molasses // A book with a character that gets in a sticky situation 
27821869
Isn't that every book EVER? xD A book with a character who gets into an especially sticky situation is Stone and Snow by Sibella Giorello. I couldn't help but feel a little sick to the stomach as Raleigh was torn between being loyal to her friend and hurting the people around her through her actions as she tried to solve a certain mystery. 
Oreo // A book dealing with the light and the darkness
33
When I think light and darkness, I automatically think of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. I never finished the last book (*hides face in utter shame*), but the light and darkness thing can be so literal in Tolkien's writing. Sauron and Gandalf, orcs and elves, Mordor and the Shire.... Oh, I need to read these again. 
Sugar // A book with a sugary sweet villain
8428195
Definitely Entwined by Heather Dixon. Keeper was so nice at first... He let Azalea and her sisters dance, always provided desserts that I wished I could take off the pages... *happy sighs* AND THEN HE TURNED!!!!!!!! But he seriously was so sugary sweet and evil all at the same time. Mostly evil though. *glares at Keeper* 
Monster // A book that confused your emotions
10507293
The Selection by Kiera Cass confused my emotions. I mean, one moment I'm rooting for America and the next I utterly despise her. And then I can't pick between Maxon and Aspen and then there are the other girls and goodness gracious this is a run-on sentence if I've ever seen one.... I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE ENTIRE SERIES!!!! 
Snickerdoodle // A book that made you laugh
22840398
Another Heather Dixon book!!!! Illusionarium really truly made me smile and giggle, ESPECIALLY Lockwood. Take, for example, this lovely quote....
"You shot the chandelier down, Lockwood? I yelled as bullets ricocheted past my head and jangled as they shot the prisms of the chandelier. I ducked down and shook the rifle from my shoulder.
"Of course not!" Lockwood yelled, his rifle firing so rapidly it fogged the air with steam. "I climbed up the wall and pulled it down with my weight, what do you think?" 
-Illusionarium by Heather Dixon
#lockwoodforever Enough said. xD
Peanut Butter // A book with a nutty character
1611657
One of the nuttiest characters I've encountered in fiction is good old Peet the sock man in On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson. Socks on his hands, a quirky wooden castle in the woods, his strange way of speech.... Nutty doesn't do Peet justice. xD 


Have you eaten any cookies or read any books lately? What's your favorite type of cookie? What's your favorite genre of book? Have you read any books with characters who love cookies in them (and not just If You give a Mouse a Cookie...)? Get some cookies, cocoa, and a good book and let's chat!

  1. I really need to read some more of Heather Dixon's books! :) I loved Entwined, so I'll have to read Illusionarium some time.

    My favourite cookie...hmmmmm. I am a bit of a sucker for coconut and jam biscuits (which are coconut and jam cookies if you talk in American haha!). My mum makes the BEST ones ever. XD

    Great post!

    2. Oh, yes, you MUST read Illusionarium! It. Is. Amazing. Just.... Lockwood. That's all you need to know.

      Oh, those sound delicious! Anything with coconut is wonderful. =)

  2. Cookies + books?? TWO OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!
    My favorite cookie, I think, would have to be chocolate peppermint. <3

    1. YES! *high fives you*

  3. I've read all but three of these books, so I'm tremendously proud of myself! ;D I read The Selection - and the next book, I think? - when I was younger, but the romance was a bit much for me then. I'd come back to it now I'm older, except tHAT LOVE TRIANGLE. I agree with everything you said about this book...

    Why did I not think about When You Give a Mouse a Cookie when I did this tag?? xD

    1. Awesome! I read the first four books of the Section series but hated the fourth so much that I quit. *high fives in shared opinions*

      Haha, that was one of my favorite books from my childhood. xD

  4. That Illusionarium quote is hilarious!! I read Entwined a while back and enjoyed it, so I should definitely check out her other books!!

    I loved The Lost Girl of Astor Stree too... YES those twists were so sad! But the book still managed to be fantastic.

    Ahhh Peet is such a great character! I loved how his character grew throughout the series. He's a favorite, probably because he's slightly nutty lol.

    Great post! This tag looks like a lot of fun, so I might end up trying it!

    1. I know right? I had to pick just ONE, and that one was absolutely one of my favorites. Yes, do find Illusionarium right away!

      YES! Especially because of Mariano. And Chicago. And Piper. And Mariano. xD

      Yes, he got even better throughout the series! =D The nuttiness only adds to the amazingness.

      Thanks! I hope you will! =)

  5. What a fun foodie tag! I didn't know quite what to make of The Selection either!
    I kind of didn't like it. Part of the reason I read it was the cover. It is gorgeous. But I don't think I liked some of the parts with Aspen and America. (Do you know what I mean?)

    1. I patly read it because of the cover too. Yes, I know what you mean, and that's why I have such mixed feelings about the entire series. =( If those few parts were cut out, it could've been even more amazing.

  6. *squeals over all the books you added that I HAVE read, and promptly add all the ones I HAVEN'T to my tbr* xD Illusionarium! Entwined! Oh my goodness, those are two of my favorite books ever <3. So glad they made it onto your list! And I REALLY REALLY need to go to The Lost Girl Of Astor Street - that one's been on my tbr since it came out, and yet I STILL haven't read it? Crimes xD.

    1. Those are two of my favorite too! =) Although I think Entwined was my favorite of the two... Maybe it was all of Azalea's sisters. =) Yes, you do! It. Is. So. GOOD. Haha, I still haven't read The Girl Who Could See, so I guess we're even. xD
