If you’re a book blogger, you have probably heard of a blog tag. Basically, you get “tagged” by a blogger to answer a set of questions on your blog, and from there you can tag other bloggers to participate on their blogs! It’s really fun, trust me.

Since it is October (whoa, when did that happen?) I decided to create my own blog tag in celebration of Halloween. I mean, folks, it’s about candy. That is fairly awesome. Firstly, I’m going to participate in the tag, and then name the people who I have decided to tag. Sound good? Let’s go.

Which Books Remind You Of….

1. Apples

Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.

My Pick: “Aristotle And Dante Discover The Secrets of The Universe” by Benjamin Alire Saenz. I bought this book during the summer, and I didn’t finish it. While it was clearly well-written and all, I just couldn’t get into it.

2.Black Jellybeans


I don’t like being negative, but I recently finished Twisted Fate by Norah Olson. It was twisted, yes, but not in a good way.

3. Chocolate Kisses-

Aww…this novel had the best romance.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas! It’s a love triangle, but I honestly don’t know which side I prefer for Celaena. Chaol or Dorian? Dorian or Chaol?

4. Gummy Spiders

Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.

A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz. I really enjoyed this series, but it is intensely creepy. Cutting off heads? (They get put back on, but still…)

5. Jumbo Lollypop

This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!

Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. This book is massive; it sits at 600+ pages.

6. Cotton Candy-

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

I loved the 39 Clues series! I only read the first two series’ but from what I hear, they’re still going strong.

    Ooh, this is a really cool tag! And you’ve tagged some of my favourite books, too. I loved Snow Likes Ashes — and I already want the sequel, haha. FINALLY. Someone who did NOT love Aristotle And Dante Discover The Secrets of The Universe! I finished it, barely, but I didn’t like it at all. =/ I actually have a copy of Afterworlds and to be honest I’m really hesitant to start reading it. It’s just so big!I’ve kinda heard some mixed things about it too.

      I will never stop raving about Snow Like Ashes. Never. Aristotle and Dante was well-written, sure, but I was honestly pretty bored during the parts that I read.
      Afterworlds is good! I reviewed it (4 stars). My only problem was the length, pretty much.

    Dang I didn’t know Afterworlds was more than 600 pages! I hope it’s one of those long books that doesn’t seem long because it’s really good (like the Harry Potter books!). I’m so happy to hear that you liked Snow Like Ashes! I’ve been hearing it’s really good so I’m bumping that up to the top of my tbr pile.

      AFTERWORLDS IS MASSIVE. Excellent, but massive.
      And I’ve probably already said this, but SNOW LIKE ASHES IS AH-MAZING.

      EEE! Thanks, Chloe. I’m so glad you can participate.
      I just checked out the award you nominated me for. I’m trying to cut down on awards, but this one looks pretty awesome. I have this week fully scheduled, but I will definitely do it next week!

    Wow! It’s so cool that you created a book tag! It looks like so much fun to do. Thanks so much for tagging me. It might take me awhile to publish the post because my blog schedule is pretty packed, but rest assured that I will try to post it eventually. I am going to have so many answers for Cotton Candy…*sighs* That is a very unfair question, so I just might have to cheat…

Thanks so much for tagging me, Stephanie, and I’m sorry it took me so long! The tag was originally created by Jessica @ Bookish Serendipity. […]
