Delicious Reads

nevillegirl tagged me for a Halloween-themed blog meme, all about BOOKS! :) I jumped at the chance to participate, of course, and I'm just going to go ahead and say now that I tag all of you. (Yes, you, reading this post.)

1. Apples
Ah, healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.
What Is the What by Dave Eggers. Interesting read, for the most part, but it was a little long and the writing style didn't click with me. It wasn't a bad book, just not my cup of tea.


2. Milk chocolate
This is the book that you’d recommend to absolutely EVERYONE.

Ooh, SO MANY. Harry Potter, Eleanor & Park, The Fault In Our Stars, etc. Basically just go to the five-star list on my Goodreads and you'll see all of my choices.

3.Black jellybeans
WHY DO THESE EXIST?!

The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander, Girl In the Arena by Lise Haines, Trash Can Days by Teddy Steinkellner, to name a few.

4. Chocolate kisses
Aww…this novel had the best romance.

Other than the obvious ones (Eleanor & Park and The Fault In Our Stars), Cress was adorable. I won't give any spoilers, but two characters in particular stole my heart. I ate it up in just a few days.

5. Gummy spiders 
Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.
TV shows scare me more than books do ("Torchwood" being one, though even that didn't give me nightmares or anything). The scariest book I've read would have to be Asylum by Madeline Roux. I was reading one of the creepiest parts at two in the morning, by the light of a dying flashlight, when everyone else was asleep. Em Garner's Contaminated series, Coraline by Neil Gaiman, and No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale were a few others.
6. Jumbo lollipop
This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. That book is a freaking BRICK. It didn't help that the beginning was slow, either, but the ending made up for it. :)

7. Cotton candy
Admit it, you loved this when you were younger. (You probably still do.) Think: children’s or MG fiction.

Oh gosh, there were tons. But two series that really stand out to me (other than Harry Potter) are the Ramona series and the Thoroughbred series. I reread Ramona like there was no tomorrow and read close to 40 of the 70+ Thoroughbred books.

Feel free to answer the questions in the comments, or write a post of your own! :)
