The Candy Book Tag

candy-book-tag2

Because it wouldn’t be October without copious amounts of CANDY!!!!

Actually, I usually don’t each much Halloween candy. But my primary pregnancy craving this year has been for sweets, and I’ve probably eaten more candy in the last 5 months than the last five years. Right now it’s Nerds. I. LOVE. NERDS.

Thanks to The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me! I might have to steal her idea and eat some candy while I do this one, because I’m literally drooling a little…


Apples

Ah, healthy food. It’s deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards, but, um, isn’t really your thing.

41ebi9z2DjL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_Honestly, don’t hate me, I dnf-ed Anna Karenina. I just didn’t get it, and I had zero interest in 19th century Russian farming techniques. I didn’t even GET to the great love affair as I quit about 25 pages in. Snooze-city for me.

Milk Chocolate

This is a book you’d recommend to absolutely everyone.

51GfkFJuPCL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_While there is no book in the world I’d recommend to everyone, I have recommended The Night Circus to soooooo many people. I just loved this book so much! I know that not everybody felt the same way, but when a book makes it on to your all-time favorites list, you can’t just not recommend it to people because some losers didn’t like it.

Black Jellybeans

Why do these exist?

18660669Vampire Academy. This book was so stupid that I rated it “the worst book I have ever read.” Literally. What is even more perplexing to me than how the book got published in the first place is how there are SIX books in the series PLUS SPINOFFS. What? Plus, look at that cover. What on earth were they thinking?

Chocolate Kisses

Awwww, this novel had the best romance!

71LkLmxqgjLAny Rainbow Rowell romance always gives me butterflys in my tummy. They are just so sweet! I especially loved Eleanor & Park because it really captured first love so well.

Gummy Spiders

Eeek! You made sure to check under the bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.

41I3WemSw9L._SX293_BO1,204,203,200_As I’ve mentioned plenty of times on this and other blogs, Dracula pretty much scared the crap out of me. I literally had to stop reading it at night because I was having nightmares. SUCH a great novel!

Jumbo Lolipop

This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!

41Bn22qtn6LLove in the Time of Cholera took me FOREVER! Some of that was probably because I was in my freshman year of college, and in a new relationship. However, some of it has to come down to the long-winded writing style. It defintely wasn’t my favorite book, and it took me so long that it sustained some serious damage. But it’ll always stay on my bookshelf, because my husband started talking to me in the first place because he was so impressed by what I was reading! XD

Cotton Candy

Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). 

244422There are so many books that would fit into this category! It’s so hard to pick just one. But the first books I really remember falling in love with were Beverly Cleary’s. I loved Ramona, but she wrote two from the animal’s POVs that had a special place in my heart. I kept my brother’s copy of Ribsy, and I can’t wait to give it to my son when he’s old enough!


Candy lovers unite! I’m tagging:

Happy Halloween everyone! It’s almost here!!!!

  1. I totally agree with you on Anna Karenina!! So. Much. Farming. I made it through the whole thing, but wow. Farming.

    Have you read One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez? I read it and Love in the Time of Cholera around the same time, and prefer One Hundred Years…. far more. Plus, it has one of my favorite first lines ever!

    1. Honestly, no, I never read it. Love in the Time of Cholera was such a beating that I’ve never been quite brave enough to pick it up, even though I know it’s a must-read-before-you-die kind of book. Someday…

  2. Ugh I don’t even have the courage to start Anna Karenina because I’m so sure I’ll DNF it. I’ve watched the movie and really wasn’t too interested, so I don’t see how the rather massive, dense book would capture much of my attention…

    Night Circus is LIFE!!

    1. Yeah, if you didn’t like the movie DEFINITELY ignore the book. There’s so much more in there than just the story. And I’m sure it’s brilliant and all, but like you said, I just don’t care.

      NIGHT CIRCUS!!!! I can’t understand why some people didn’t like it!

  3. Yay glad you did this- is it wrong that just reading this has made me crave candy too? Ah well after I’m done I’m gonna get me some chocolate! I actually get why you dnf’d Anna Karenina- it’s a great book *but* you do have to force yourself through the first 100 pages cos it is about farming- and for some reason, the book ends (well the story does at least) and then there’s another 100 pages on farming- I don’t really know why. But I can say the part in the middle was worth it, so if you’re ever tempted again… maybe skip the beginning and end lol 😉 No one will judge 😉 Ah Night Circus is brilliant (wait some people didn’t like it? WHO??) aww that’s so sweet that love in a time of cholera was what you were reading when you met your husband!! (took me ages to get through that book too 😉 )

    1. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO HATE THE NIGHT CIRCUS! I’m not really sure WHY, they never really seem to have a good reason. I guess maybe they felt like it was slow? But if anything I feel like I have to justify being in love with the book more frequently than I would have to justify criticizing it. *shrug*

      1. Ye WOT? I didn’t even know this was a thing- I’m not joking. I’ve not met anyone that didn’t think it was 4*+. I mean, I get docking a star for that- but disliking it?? I guess you learn something new every day… like that people are WRONG lol. Nah jk, people are entitled to their opinion (even when they’re totally wrong 😉 )
