The Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s Book Tag

benjerry_booktag

Hello guys! Today I bring you a new book tag, the Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s Book Tag, created by Aimal @Bookshelves & Paperbacks, and she was kind enough to nominate me to do this – thank you so much Aimal. So, here we go…

1. Vanilla Caramel Fudge: pick a light, fluffy contemporary 

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is the definition of light, fluffy contemporary. And it’s so good!!!

2. Mint Chocolate Cookie: a new release that you wish everybody would read

I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but the answer has to be The One Thing (Marci Lyn Curtis). If you haven’t read this book, I ask you: what the hell are you waiting for?

3. Karamel Sutra Core: a last book in a series that you were completely satisfied with

I was super satisfied with the ending of The Infernal Devices. Clockwork Princess was an amazing book, and even though I wouldn’t have minded to have another 10 books about Jem, Tessa and Will, I was happy with the resolution and about knowing that it wasn’t the last time I would be reading about any of them.

4. Cherry Garcia: an ending that was bittersweet

So many books have bittersweet endings… but today, I’ll go with Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I loved the ending, but I’ll admit that I would like to know if they ever find their way to one another again.

5. Strawberry Shortcake: a book containing your OTP of OTPs

I have too many OTPs to count (actually, I’m thinking about making a list of them, what do you guys think?). Either way, like I was saying, too many to count, but I’ll drop my most recent favorite obsession, and that is Penryn and Raffe from the Penryn & the End of Days trilogy. Guys, the last book is killing me!!!


6. Milk and Cookies: two authors that if they collaborated, they would go perfectly together

I’ll redirect you to a recent Top Ten Tuesday post, because I think that any pairing I put in there would be pretty perfect! – Go HERE!!!

7. Boston Cream Pie: a book that had you turning your pages late into the night

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. I went to sleep when the sun was coming up, it was a wild ride and totally worth it, because this book… wow… wow!!!! Not only did it keep me up all night, it also gave me the biggest book hangover I ever had! It was days before I could stop myself going through its pages re-reading certain chapters… To be honest, it only stopped because the book went to Portugal.

8. Chocolate Therapy: a book that makes you feel better after a long day of life

I’ll go with You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), Felicia Day’s memoir, because this book made me laugh and smile and cry, but it also made me feel less alone. She’s brilliant and I highly recommend this book.

9. Coffee, Coffee, Buzzbuzzbuzz!: a book not yet released that you can’t wait to get your hands on

There are MANY books coming out that I need right now, but most of all I need The Rose and the Dagger the sequel to The Wrath and the Dawnby Renee Ahdieh, because of that ending. That ending tore me apart!!! I need to know that Khalid is Ok, that Shazi is OK, that Shazi is going back, what she’ll do with her magic, how they’re going to break the curse, …, and I need to see Despina and Jalal actually talking. So yeah… I need it!


I Tag:

3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge (2): Day 2

Welcome back for day 2 of my second 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge. Thanks again to THE BIBLIOTHÈQUE for tagging me to do this again! (Thank you so much THE BIBLIOTHÈQUE!!!)

3days3quoteschallenge

Here are the three days of my first Challenge: day 1, day 2 and day 3. And here is the quote from yesterday!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  3. Nominate three new bloggers each day.

The second quote is from one of my favorite authors, Cassandra Clare – which I realized I should have posted yesterday, because it was her birthday!!! Here I could have picked a whole lot of quotes, heck, I could make a book out of it, but I went with Clockwork Princess, because is so beautiful, and with a quote that I think defines perfectly well the most perfect love triangle that I ever read (warning, if you have not yet read CP2, you might want to not be SPOILED!).

I will only say this: Tessa is one lucky lady!


I will nominate:

Once again, only do this if you like, but it’s so much fun. 🙂 See you tomorrow for day 3!

I will go down with this ship: Charlotte and Henry (TID)

Ships are a complicated thing, there’s something in that “couple” that you think clicks and even if it doesn’t work out on the long wall, you still think that it was meant to be.

Cassandra Clare’s work is full of shippable couples: almost every character finds themselves in a romantic entanglement that you just can’t have enough of. So the other day, I was reading The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Prince on the bus and it was about time that one of my favorite couples shone: Oh Henry and Lottie, what a fools you both have been!

charlotte and henry Branwell

It’s impossible not to love them, in a time when a woman is deemed unfit to run much about anything, Henry is there to prove that Charlotte is 100 times tougher than he will ever be, and that’s just fine. He loved her all that time and she thought that he had married her out of a debt that his father had to her father?! Well, Henry is right Charlotte, you should know better than that! And Charlotte, who always loved her husband so much mas didn’t dare show it, for the thought that he did not return her feelings… oh silly you!

CJ_Charlotte_&_Henry

After years of marriage (how many years I’m actually curious, because they’re both so young), they finally let out their feelings – let out is a nice way to put it, shouted them out of anger is a more accurate description – and fell into each other’s arms. Although, given the news that she had to share with him, I would like to read what each of them thought about their intimate relationship prior to their profession of love for each other, because it’s clear that they had fallen into each other’s arms already without any problems…
