Waffles Book Tag

I’m coming around to breakfast food.

Did I mention I went to the Waffle Barn in Ashland?

Wish I could recommend the Salted Caramel Waffle, but I was tempted by the Chocolate Chip Waffle instead.

To make up for missing out on that caramel-y goodness, I’m doing the Waffles Book Tag as seen on Drizzle and Hurricane Books.

Rules of The Waffles Book Tag:

  • Link back to the original creator, Kat @ Novels & Waffles
  • Feel free to use any of the waffle graphics in this post, just make sure to credit Kat if you do!
  • Tag as many people as you want (or don’t want) to. No pressure here, folks 🙂

 

I WILL in fact be using Kat’s excellent graphics. They’re adorable AND informative.

I couldn’t decide between two classic LGBTQIA+ novels.

Annie on My Mind is a 1982 book about two girls in love and the inevitable freak-out from their small-minded community.

Luckily, nobody dies!

In Kissing Kate, after two friends kiss at a party, the eponymous Kate wants to pretend it never happened.

I read these books between my last year of Christian school and my first year of public junior high.

Don’t mind me, just a straight person doing some research…

PAY NO ATTENTION TO MY BORROWING HISTORY.

I zipped through a book of Herriot’s vet stories in 8th grade, though I don’t recall which one.

The medical details were…kind of gross, but animals in the English countryside are the definition of wholesome.

Lots of lambs and calves and rolling green hills.

Also, dogs. And dogs are NOTHING BUT PURE.

I could go for some Eggos.

My grandpa used to read me the Angelina Ballerina books.

My favorite was Angelina and Alice.

I liked that there was a brown mouse whose personality more closely matched mine.

Also, green ballet gear? Iconic.

I miss these books! I should start collecting them for my siblings’ future progeny.

Fruits Basket has a number of sweet characters.

None, though, can beat the precious tiger of the zodiac.

Google will show you images from the anime, but Kisa is SO MUCH CUTER in the manga.

I love her little pink nose.

I should stop trying to read Vietnam War literature.

Inside Out & Back Again portrays a reality I cannot fathom.

Inside Out and Back Again

That’s…really all I have to say.

Growing up impoverished during a war defies my understanding.

Disclaimer: the short story “The Color Master” is one of the most beautiful allegories I’ve ever read.

Otherwise, I couldn’t make sense of the stories in The Color Master.

I bought this book right after I college, so I wasn’t looking to untangle the many meanings behind the shredded tigers in “Tiger Mending.”

I EARNED this Bachelor of Arts.

SPOONFEED ME YOUR MORALS.

Actually, don’t.

 

Maple Syrup.pngI READ EACH AND EVERY PONY PALS BOOK, DOWN TO THE FINAL VOLUME.

The Last Pony Ride.jpg

I GREW UP WITH THESE CHARACTERS.

I NEEDED TO SEE THEIR JOURNEYS THROUGH.

I think the series ended with two of the Pony Pals GIVING UP THEIR PONIES.

Moving on is ROOOUGH.

I own approximately 8,000,000 Pop figurines.

I have Lizzie and Darcy from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, several superheroines from DC Bombshells, the great Sailor Jupiter from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, and…

…INTRODUCING…

…RONAN…

…NIALL…

…LYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYNCH!

I change my answer: I’d save HIM in the event of a fire.

This blog is now OFFICIALLY an unofficial Ronan Lynch fanpage.

I’m posting this on Bagel Day.

Bagels aren’t quite waffles, but they’re both carbs!

Happy Friday.

PLEASE SHARE your favorite “sugary sweet” cinnamon roll characters. I need to add more to my collection.

…disregard how creepy that sounded.
