I stumbled across the Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s Book Tag on the Bookshelves & Paperbacks blog and loved the idea instantly! So here are my ice cream themed reads 🙂
Vanilla Caramel Fudge: Pick a light, fluffy contemporary
Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally is a really cute, light contemporary read for days when you don’t want your book to drag your mood down.
Mint Chocolate Cookie: a new release that you wish everybody would read
A Step Toward Falling is a book I can’t promote enough! It gives a super accurate depiction of people with disabilities, has a great storyline, and ends takes on tough issues while still being able to have light and sweet moments.
Karamel Sutra Core: a last book in a series that you were completely satisfied with
The One is an example of over eating something super sweet. Everything wrapped up so perfectly with little conflict that I was a little disappointed. Even the love triangle ended up not really being a thing because one of the guy’s had one foot out the door. This book is an example of overindulgence in this ice cream metaphor 🙂
Cherry Garcia: an ending that was bittersweet
Harry Potter was “the series” of my childhood. I loved how it ended, but was sad to see it was all over.
Strawberry Shortcake: a book containing your OTP of OTPs
Mac and Sydney’s relationship is one of my favorites. They don’t have instant chemistry that jumps off the page from the moment they meet and their relationship isn’t the sole focus in either of their lives. I like how they look out for each other, and their relationship feels a lot more natural than some depicted in other YA novels.
Milk & Cookies: two authors that if they collaborated, they would go perfectly together
If Laurie Halse Anderson and John Green wrote a book together, I would have that thing preordered months in advance. I think their writing would compliment each other really well, and would love to see them work together someday.
Boston Cream Pie: a book that had you turning pages late into the night
I’ll have a review of this book up soon! With the alternating chapters from different times and perspectives, I’ll Give You the Sun does a great job of keeping information from readers until the perfect moment, making this an ideal page turning read.
Chocolate Therapy: a book that makes you feel better after a long day of life
Having read this before and knowing how things turn out, Ugly Love is the perfect book to make me laugh, cry, and just expel all my nonsense emotions after a long day 🙂
Coffee, Coffee, buzzbuzzbuzz!: a book not yet released that you can’t wait to get your hands on
I read Ink and Bone earlier this fall and really enjoyed it. I’m really looking forward to finding out what happens to these characters in Paper and Fire.
