As always for this segment I will find awesome book tags throughout the vast, wide inter-webs and complete mini-challenges. I’ll hope you’ll have fun and participate with me as well!

Today’s topic: Coffee Book Tag
Found On: Embuhlee Liest
1. Black: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
Now maybe it’s because I was younger and not as much into fantasy as I am now, but I’d had to say Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling. I really want to read the series, but I’m afraid if I don’t like it as much as others have or don’t say it’s flawlessly amazing, then book readers everywhere will shun me. There are a lot of hardcore fans out there for many series and I feel that people shouldn’t be overly offended if you don’t like book.
2. Peppermint mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.
Hmm.. there are quite a few, because of the many holidays and seasons. I’ve noticed that books with TV/movie adaptations are more popular during the summer (at least it seems that way to me). I’ve seen a lot of people reading Game of Thrones by George R. Martin during the summer reading season.
3. Hot chocolate: What is your favorite children’s book?
I have a lot of favorites from my childhood, but one that particularly stands out to me is Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. It’s the only time I’ve felt sentimental about a spider’s death, plus it has really gives great messages to its readers.
4. Double shot of espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve read lots of historical fiction prior to that novel, but the settings were very new to me. I enjoyed Gabaldon’s quality writing and the depth of characters.
5. Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere.
Any of the three Divergent series books. It’s probably because of the movie adaptation, but somehow I always see it being plastered everywhere on the shelves or advertised on TV and various posters.
6. That hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shout out.
I would have to pick Jonathan Rand, who is a local Michigan author. He wrote the Michigan Chillers and American Chillers series that I grew up reading. Both series are horror and I enjoyed them a lot because they (Michigan Chillers) were based in my home state and were creepy stories.
7. Oops! I accidentally got decaf: Name a book you were expecting more from.
I just recently reviewed this book, but I thought Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick would be very suspenseful, but it became predictable as I read on.
8. The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.
A Tree Grows on Brooklyn Street by Betty Smith. It’s a timeless classic, that I think everyone should read. It’s very sad in some parts, but the story ends on a positive note.
