The Chocolate Book Tag!


As a lover of both chocolate and books, I thought what better way to celebrate this than to do a tag combining the two! I saw this tag over at Jack Croxall's blog, enjoy!!

Dark chocolate: a book that covers a dark topic.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. World War II and the Holocaust are such horrific times in our history, and this is reflected in the beautiful literature that has been based on them. The Book Thief is one of my favourite examples of this. Zusak's incredibly poetic writing style captures the mindset, pain, and endless hope present in such an awful time.

White chocolate: your favourite light-hearted/humorous read.
The Tallulah Casey series by Louise Rennison. This is the series that I turn to when I'm feeling super down, or home-sick when I'm at college as I absolutely cannot read it without laughing like crazy. It is such a light-hearted, heart-warming series, probably aimed more at a middle grade audience, but I believe could be appreciated by readers of any age! Such a cute series.

Milk chocolate: a book with a lot of hype that you're dying to read.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Of course this series is absolutely adored by everyone in the book blogging and booktube community and I've heard so many wonderful things about it! I cannot wait to read it!!

Chocolate with caramel centre: a book that makes you feel all gooey in the middle when you read it.
City of Masks by Mary Hoffman. I loooove this book. Filled with romance, pain, and adventure, all the perfect ingredients for a novel, I read this book dozens of times during my schooling and it never fails to make me feel at home and all gooey inside.

Wafer-free Kit Kat: a book that has surprised you lately.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton. I was lucky enough to receive a review copy of this through NetGalley (see my review here!) and I absolutely adored it! I wasn't sure if the desert setting and western elements would really be for me, but I found them a fantastic combination and really hope it continues in a series as the world Hamilton has built is so so wonderful!!

Snickers: a book that you're going nuts about.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. I've been raving about this non-stop lately, so why not continue! I cannot even comprehend how much I adore Alexandra Bracken's new series, and am ridiculously excited for the second book to be released (even though it's barely been a month since the first one came out!).

Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows: a book that you would turn to for a comfort read.
The Harry Potter series, obviously, but also the Mortal Instruments series. As the characters in both of these series are so close to my heart, and I have read about them so so many times, it is always comforting to pick them up and return to the worlds that I adore. I feel so at home at Hogwarts, and at the Institute; there is nothing better than snuggling up with a cup of tea and cuddling my dogs while I read them again and again.

I hope you enjoyed this super fun tag! Let me know in the comments if you've done it yourself, and if not, I tag YOU.

Love always,



  1. OOH CHOCOLATE. This post has made me entirely hungry...thanks for that. ;D hehe. Omg, but I completely agree with your Book Thief thoughts and Rebel of the Sands too. I LOVE that book. I had a feeling I would adore it, but I'm just so glad it lived up to my personal expectations and hype. sO MUCH SASS. EEEP. And this makes me excited for Passenger! I have it from the library and have been kind of procrastinating?! But squee!! I'm getting onto this. :D

    1. Haha I know right, I got the worst chocolate craving whilst writing it!! So glad you loved Rebel of the Sands too! It's so amazing, hey! And I hope you love Passenger as much as I did :D xx

  2. Who knew books can be equated to chocolates? This is such a fun tag, Ari. I see Rebel of the Sands on there. I, too, was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yeah, two of the best things ever, hey! Thank you so much!! xx
