Ice Cream Book Tag

I FOUND A TAG ABOUT ICE CREAM.

I ate THE BEST plant-based rhubarb yogurt the other day. (Thanks for letting me switch with you, Nikita.)

I have a coconut-chocolate Haagen Dasz layer concoction in my freezer.

I’m getting hungry.

 

Vanilla

A book you wish had more flavor

I don’t understand…this book won AWARDS.

Bear and Nightingale

The Bear and the Nightingale had all the elements I love…so why did it fall flat?

 

Chocolate

A long book or an immersive world that you enjoyed indulging in

I didn’t want to leave the world of the Graceling Realm series.

Graceling

I’m telling you it’s a beautiful place.

Except for all the torture, war, and physical maladies.

 

Strawberry

A romance that was super sweet

DAMN YOU, WEDDING PEACH!

WHY CAN’T I QUIT YOU?

Wedding Peach

Despite this manga being REALLY STUPID, I ATE UP the romance between Yousuke and Momoko.

I might even call it a FAVORITE.

 

Ice Cream Sundae

A book encompassing all the elements you love

Pffffft.

PFFFFFFFFT.

You know I have to pick The Scorpio Races.

2

Nothing beats murder horses and true love.

Oh, and siblings. Let’s make it hurt.

 

Milkshake

A book that blends genres

Say someone went the route of soft sci-fi/speculative fiction and chose to tell a time-jumping, alternate universe love story.

Q: A Novel does just that.

Q

Your mileage may vary on its success.

Read the reviews.

For what it’s worth, I didn’t like this book.

 

Sprinkles

A book with a colorful cover

I read this and wept.

girl made of stars

I find the cover SO gorgeous.

Oh, my heart.

 

Ice Cream Cake

A book worthy of celebration

I bought Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World without knowing it was aimed at teens.

Here We Are

OH WELL.

This book is a top-notch how-to guide with creative ideas (make a feminist comic about your superhero alter ego!)

Oh, and Malindo Lo contributes a phenom essay.

 

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich or Three Scoops on a Cone

A book with multiple perspectives

Here’s the truth: I read half of Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Free Throws at a friend’s house during a sleepover.

SHE WAS STILL ASLEEP, OKAY?

Rallison

The book switches between two best friends’ POVs as they fight over the same lame guy.

I think this book had a point about friendship or SOMETHING.

 

Waffle Cone

A book you felt compelled to read very quickly

Hey Ladies! took me a day at most.

7

Maybe two.

I sped through that thing.

 

Pint

A book you set aside but plan on going back to later

IT COMES IN PINTS?

I’M GETTING ONE!

I’m a quarter of the way through Crooked Kingdom.

I set it down to work on new books.

I WILL pick it back up. Things just got good.

 

Non-book questions

Cup or cone?

Cones last longer.

Favorite flavor?

I ate an AMAZING Lucky Charms ice cream at the start of last summer

Toppings: yes or no?

Ice cream, no. Fro-yo, yes.

Favorite local ice creamery?

The ice cream debate gets heated here.

I love Salt and Straw. They came up with the Lucky Charms flavor.

That’s where my loyalties lie.

 

Do you like ice cream as much as I do?

Boom. Tagged.

Go forth, chili babies.
