My posts for the last while have been all business, so today I thought I’d have some fun with the Ice Cream book tag (snagged from the lovely A.M. Molvik’s Ramblings). Read on to find out about some of my favourite books (or possibly end up with serious ice cream cravings)…
A very long book series that you want to read but probably won’t, and why.
The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. When there are so many books in a series that there are multiple charts to help readers navigate it, the chances of finishing are pretty slim. Still, I’m going to try…eventually.
A book series that you would read again and again and again.
I’ll have to say the Harry Potter series, since I’ve already re-read it multiple times.
A book with a green cover.
The greenest cover on my shelf (even if it isn’t pistachio green).
A book with the cutest romance.
This is a tough one, as I don’t tend to read “cute” romances. I did enjoy Andrea and Raphael’s story in Gunmetal Magic (they also show up occasionally in a few of the other Kate Daniels books). As hyena shifters, they show interest in potential mates by pranking them, which was amusing, if not exactly cute. I also really like both characters and Raphael is cute in his own way.
A book with a sour ending.
There are so many books like this. I even wrote a post about a series that had an ending so bad, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. But Her Fearful Symmetry stands out because this book would be one of my all-time favourites if it weren’t for the disappointing ending.
A children’s book that you like.
Going with a classic that’s beautifully written. Arthur Rackam’s illustrations are my favourite, as well.
Your favorite classic.
It’s been a while since I’ve read Crime and Punishment (time for a re-read) but it’s remained my favourite after all these years. There’s something deeply human about it that I think is lacking in the world right now.
A very long book that you read very fast.
I love all of Alison Weir’s (nonfiction) books on the Tudors. If you’re interested in the period, Weir’s work is well researched and fascinating to read.
What do you think? What book “flavours” would you choose? Share in the comments (and let me know if you post this tag on your own blog).
