Chocolate Book Tag



Hi everyone! I found this amazing tag over at Erin's lovely blog. It combines some of my favorite things in life. Reading and chocolate!!!


1. Dark Chocolate (A book that covers a dark topic)
A Child Called "It" by Dave Pelzer. The author tells his story about his abusive mother and all the struggles he went through in his boyhood. It's a story of a boy who felt worthless, and unloved. It may not sound that great but it's a very interesting read. You get to see what life is sometimes like for an abused child. Once I started reading it, it was like I was living his life. I felt as if I was going through his horrific struggles, and feeling the ways he had felt. This was unlike any book I've ever read. There were no fairy unicorns to save the day, only cold harsh reality. It was extremely sad and a very dark topic to read about. Nonetheless it is a topic that we all need to know about and be aware of children still suffering from abuse.

2. White Chocolate (Favorite light-hearted/humorous read)
The Casson Family series by Hilary Mckay. I know it's more than one book but I couldn't pick only one. It's about an artistic family in England and their funny, quirky life. Each book is based on the point of view of one of the Casson children. I loved it!


3. Milk Chocolate (A book with a lot of hype that you're dying to read)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's no like I'm dying to read it though. I'm just curious on why so many people like it. I must find out!! ;)

4. Caramel-filled Chocolate (A book that makes you feel all gooey inside)
To tell you the truth, I don't really like a lot of lovey-doveyness (that's a word I just created) in the books I read. Divergent (by Veronica Roth) had some romance in it but it wasn't totally based on that. I read Lydia's Dream... it's an Amish romance novel. I did not like it!! It was so depressing!!!! If you know me pretty well, you know that I don't like to stop reading books before I'm done with them. The whole story was a bit much. I think Lydia had to choose between a widower with rowdy sons or a man whose whole family had dwarfism. The author also changed a little boy's eye color. She described the child's eyes as blue and then as brown... I guess she may have forgotten which color it was...O_o



5. Wafer-less KitKat (A book that has surprised you)
Someone Named Eva by Joan M. Wolf and Feathers by Jacqueline Woodson. I found them on sale, and I only got them because they were so cheap. They turned out to be incredible books! It was definitely surprised!

6. Snickers (A book you're going nuts about)
Legend (by Marie Lu)!  I love it! Let me tell you, I had my doubt about this book, but I fell in love with it!!!

7. Hot Chocolate With Mini Marshmallows (A book you turn to for a comfort read)
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. :) Amazing! It's always my go-to read.

8. Box of Chocolates (A series you feel has something for everyone)
The Harry Potter series!!! It has adventure, mystery, romance, betrayal, friendship, sacrifice, and the list goes on and on. ;) It's just an amazing series that I'll never get tired of.





 So that's the tag! I hope you had fun reading it!
