THE TRADITIONAL CHEESE: NAME YOUR FAVORITE CLASSIC NOVEL
The Great Gatsby was a high school English class assignment for me. I had to analyze the entire thing into a 16-page paper. You’d think that would make me hate it, but it did quite the opposite. It made me appreciate hidden symbolism and made me realize just how sad your life can be, even when you thought you had it all…
A HOLE-Y CHEESE: NAME AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER
A story about a real estate agent who gets abducted during an open house, and is forced to live with her captor in a cabin in the mountains. I listened to this on audio. I was shook. I went from scared, to angry, to sad — I found myself gasping at certain parts. This is a great suspense/thriller if you’re in need of one!
THE CONTROVERSIAL CHEESE: NAME AN UNPOPULAR BOOK OPINION YOU HAVE
I hate to even mention this one because it has such a huge fan base. Let me preface this by saying I loved the sequel, One Dark Throne. However, Three Dark Crowns disappointed me. I am a huge fan of Kendare Blake. I have been ever since she wrote the Anna Dressed in Blood duology. I felt like her writing was so disjointed in Three Dark Crowns, and I couldn’t care less about the side characters. I will admit that the world building was great, and I liked each of the three sisters’ powers. Everything else felt blah to me.
THE FAVORITE CHEESE: NAME AN AUTHOR YOU ALWAYS WANT MORE OF
I will read anything Rainbow Rowell writes. She’s such a master at contemporary YA and character driven books. Also she’s such a sweetheart. Several years ago, before she gained popularity from Eleanor & Park, she saw my post on Facebook about how my book club was enjoying Attachments so much. She sent me a message and offered to mail us signed bookplates. How cool is that!?
THE DUTCH CHEESE: NAME A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO TRAVEL
I immediately fell in love with Jenny Colgan’s writing because they always take place in a cozy, rural European town. The Bookshop on the Corner takes place in rural Scotland, and it made me want to visit soooo badly.
THE FAKE CHEESE: NAME YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BOOK/A BOOK YOU LOVE TO HATE ON
This was supposed to be a coming of age story, but all I got was a bad plot and a Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
A MIXED CHEESE: NAME YOUR FAVORITE SHIP
Simon and Baz from Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. O MY HEART! (Gorgeous art by @Susanne_draws)
THE SIMPLE CHEESE: NAME AN OLD FAVORITE YOU’LL NEVER STOP LOVING
Fun fact: I learned how to read Thai before English. So when I moved back to the United States when I was in the third grade, my English reading skills were rather poor. I read The Boxcar Children mysteries with my English tutor each day after school. Not only did it immensely improve my English, but it encouraged me to read other chapter books. I like to think these books helped spawn my love for mysteries/crime novels.
THE SPICY CHEESE: NAME A BOOK YOU CAN’T JUDGE BY ITS COVER
I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I received this book in my Owlcrate subscription box. The cover confused me and the synopsis was a bit strange. But I’m so glad I listened to other people when they said to give it a chance. It ended up becoming one of my favorite books in 2017. It’s a historical fiction novel, with a twist. It’s filled with hilarious, witty characters, and a touch of magic…
THE MONSTER CHEESE: NAME A VILLAIN THAT YOU WISH NEVER HAD THE JOY OF EATING CHEESE AGAIN
Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles suckssss. Do I think there are worse villains out there? Yes. Do I think Queen Levana is terrible, has no redeeming qualities, and doesn’t deserve to eat cheese ever again? You bet.
I also tag anyone else who is interested in this tag!
Thanks for reading! I do love all kinds of cheese (even blue!), so I hope you’ll join this tag, too!
