The Cake-Flavoured Book Tag

Hey friends! Today we have a tag which I stole from Dessa. I was not actually tagged for this one, but it looked sooo fun that I’ve wanted to do it for a long time!!

1. Chocolate Cake (a Dark Book You Absolutely Love).
Does this mean a book that actually makes you feel dark? Or one that just deals with dark subjects?? I don’t know. There are books that I really like but that make me feel more or less oppressed because I know the bad thing that’s coming up and it hurts. As for dark subjects, I tend to love books that tackle hard topics. Belovedby Kaitlyn Krispensedealt with suicide, abandonment, betrayal, & more… but it is just a beautiful, humorous, heart-satisfying read.  

2. Vanilla Cake (a Light Read).
Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne. The book is light-hearted and humorous read, but it has some beautiful themes & elements…. it’s a deep book. 
3. Red Velvet (a Book That Gave You Mixed Emotions).
Mm, red velvet is so good. 
Dreams & Devotion by Sarah Holman. Up to this book I loved all the Taelis books. This one I had a problem with because the religion became so Catholic. I love the lessons, but I have a hard time with certain stuff that I don’t agree with. 
4. Cheesecake (a Book You Would Recommend to Anyone).
Who doesn’t love cheesecake?! 
I nominate A Nest for Celeste by Henry Cole. This book is so sweet and beautiful. It has an amazing theme, and wonderful characters, and such a lovely plot. <33 Honestly, I think everyone should read it. 
5. Coffee Cake (a Book You Did Not Finish).
I like coffee cake, actually… 
There were two books lately that I skim read/pre-read & decided to DNF because of content. Both were by Kate Cambridge. 

6. Carrot Cake (a Book With Great Writing).
Oh, yes, carrot cake is so yummy. 
Ahhhh! Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott. This book is a masterpiece of writing. Yes, there are stuff that I don’t approve of & it also tackles a couple dark subjects. But it has a masterful plot, amazing character creation, and wonderful language/description. 

7. Tiramisu (a Book That Left You Wanting More).
I don’t like tiramisu!
 I don’t often want more to a book. I prefer stand-alones to series. Perhaps the one exception is the Emily Abbott books by Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick. Each one leaves me wanting another!!! 

8. Cupcakes (a Series With 4+ Books).
Cupcakes are such fun. 
The What Katy Did Series by Susan Coolidge! I love this series SO. VERY. MUCH. I love the people, and the lessons, and the writing style, and the descriptions, and the plots… She was an amazing author. <33 And my favourite female main character is Katy. ❤
 
 

9. Fruit Cake (a Book That Wasn’t What You Anticipated).
I actually like fruit cake. 
Fern’s Hollow by Hesba Stretton. I need to reread this one. But when I first read it I found it not what I expected. It was nice, but I didn’t love it. 


10. Lamington (Favourite Australian Book).
I’ve never tasted Lamington. But I love Australia. Sadly, I’ve read few books about Australia. But G.A. Henty’s A Final Reckoning I love. I mean, it’s got bushrangers & policemen. XD

Such a fun tag!!! I never know who to tag for these, so just go ahead and steal it from me if you want to do it. 😉

Hello! :) I'm Katja. I'm a Canadian bibliophile, book reviewer, writer, and child of God. I love too many things to name, but among them are chocolate, heirlooms, history, fancy handwriting, grammar & punctuation, laughter, tearjerking books, lists, organized bookshelves, pink roses, flowing skirts, hymns, and pretty much anything old-fashioned, beautiful, & classy.

  1. This is such a fun creative tag! Also I love Winnie the Pooh!!! 🙂 I've only read the first in the Emily Abbott series, but I really want to read the rest! And I am intrigued by the What Katie Did series. I've never read Ivanhoe, but I'm now wondering if it's a good option to read aloud with my husband. We like to read classics together, but we have to read stuff that both of us will enjoy! It can be a challenge sometimes! 🙂
