Who here loves waffles?
I sure as hell do, so I was very pleased to be tagged for The Waffle Book Tag by May @ My 1st Chapter, created by the waffle queen herself: Kat @ Novels and Waffles. Much thanks to May for thinking of me, and to Kat for letting everyone use her gorgeous waffle graphics for this tag (you’ll find them below!) But now without further ado, let’s jump into the tag.
Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
Little Dorrit is not Dickens’ most popular book, but it’s fucking amazing nonetheless. Don’t be frightened off by the novel’s length because it’s super-easy to read, and entertaining – kind of like a Victorian soap opera (in the best way possible!) with tons of characters and multiple plot-lines.
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows
I was originally trying to think of a contemporary novel, possibly a romance-centric one, for this question, but really, there’s no book that’s quite as charming as My Lade Jane. It made me beam and laugh out loud more than, well, any other book I’ve ever read – it’s the very definition of a wholesome novel.
The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot
I’ve just written a post about losing my interest in Meg Cabot’s novels, but man, her old stuff makes me so nostalgic. While I discovered her because of the Princess Diaries it was her Mediator novels that impressed me the most. Suze and Jesse? The dream couple, don’t argue.
I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver
I had so many ideas for this – Helen Hoang, for instance, has created some incredibly sweet characters – but then I remembered Nathan from I Wish You All the Best. He is the sweetest, sunniest, most supportive character I’ve read this year, and exactly who Ben, the protagonist of the novel, deserves.
Sadie by Courtney Summers
I don’t really read sad books, but I made an exception for Sadie by Courtney Summers, and I’m so happy I did! It’s easily one of the most exceptional novels I’ve read this year, maybe ever. It is, however, a book that will 1000% punch you in the feels, as it centers around Sadie, a girl hunting down her sister’s killer. It’s… brutal, but definitely a book worth reading.
The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I was trying to think of something less hyped, but I just couldn’t get The Illuminae Files out of my head. The way this series is edited is unique and fun – a bit intimidating to look at at first, but actually really easy and fast to read.
Psy-Changeling by Nalini Singh
It was my intention to mention a series that’s already wrapped up, but it’d have been weird not answering with Psy-Changeling, aka the longest series I’ve ever read. The original series has 15 books – and a few novellas – whilst the currently on-going spin off has 3 books out so far. I’ve been following this series for years, and I love it more and more with each addition.
I don’t think I own any bookish accessories, with the exception of a bookish mug and a shit ton of bookmarks. I’m not big on bookish accessories, and find most of them pointless (no offense to anyone who loves them!) so I don’t really go out of my way to acquire any.
I’m not going to tag anyone specific, because it always makes me nervous to do so, but consider yourself tagged if you want to! Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Do you like bookish accessories?
