Hey pixels!! How are you?? How is your summer going? I’ve been nominated to do this tag by my lovely friend Ilsa, from A Whisper of Ink. Please, visit her blog, is amazing!!
I am so happy about the tag because I love books and ice cream, so this is, basically, a comination of two of my favourite things ever. A wonderful idea for a tag, in my opinion!! I hope you’ll enjoy my answers, my happy friends!!
chocolate ice cream (a dark book)
I guess almost any thriller or horror story could fit in this first category. I don’t read so many horror stories, but I’m keen on thrillers and similar. I’m thinking in the Millenium books, by Stieg Larsson. The first 3 ones, the fourth is written by another author; I liked it, but I prefer Larsson’s style.
vanilla ice cream (a light, fluffy read)
Lab Girl, by Hope Jahren. I found it so interesting, the story is so sweet. And while reading it, I was so interested in knowing more about the plants and trees mentioned in the book. Not to talk about my new ambition of planting a tree if someday I have my own garden.
cookies & cream ice cream (a gorgeous book)
Someday this pain will be useful to you, by Peter Cameron. I think it’s an interesting story. When I read it I din’t feel so good, and reading this book helped me.
strawberry ice cream (a book that left you with mixed feelings)
Alley, by Veronica Roth. The last book of the Divergent trilogy. I liked it, but I really prefer how the film ends. This is weird because I almost always prefer the book, but in this case is just about how the book ends.
peanutella ice cream (an underrated book)
La peur, by Gabriel Chevalier. I don’t know if it’s underrated, but when I bought it the book store woman told me that I was the first person buying this book there, and I’m talking about the most popular book store all over my town… I know it’s a small town, but they didn’t had it there; they had to order it just for me… I would like to know if now more people had bought it… It’s about WWI, if you’re interested.
mango sorbet ice cream (an interesting book)
Atlas de islas remotas, by Judith Schalansky. It’s a weird book where the author talks about 50 lonely islands and tells a short fiction tale for every island. There are islands where no one lives (or very few people live), not the usual places full of tourists. I did not know about the existence of more than half of them. I’m interested in this kind of weird books that allow you to learn that kind of stuff.
mint ice cream (a book that was not for you)
The Twilight saga, by Stephanie Meyer. It’s not my style. I think the story is full of topics and romance, but it has not a real plot behind all that obsessive love. No, thank you.
white chocolate ice cream (an all time favourite)
Harry Potter (all the book series), by Rowling. I love the story, if I start reading one of them, I just can’t stop until the book is over. And then, I have to start the following one… I was not exactly a child when I read the first book for the first time (high school), but I fell in love with it. I remember how horrible it was every time I was waiting for the next book to be published, I wanted so badly to know how everything would end….
coffee ice cream (a book you DFN’ed)
I haven’t finished reading lots of books. I used to feel horrible while doing it, but now I think if I don’t like a book I can just stop reading. I had to read some horrible books for school, so now I just want to read the books that I really enjoy. An example of this category would be 50 shades of Grey.
ice cream sundae (a book you devoured)
Here I could talk about lots of books, too. All the good books I’ve mentioned before in this post, Lord of the rings, The name of the rose, all the books from Jane Austen, Mari Jungsted or Camilla Läckberg…. Just to name a few…
I tag anyone who wants to do the tag!! Just start answering questions, my happy pixels!! Please, let me know if you’re doing the tag, I would love to read your answers!!
What do you think about mine? Have you read any of the books I’m mentioning? Please, let me know in the comments below.
