Rice: The Foundation – “The book that got you into reading (or book blogging)”
I used to read Nicholas Sparks books when I was in high school. Most of my reading choices were limited to his books because I wasn’t very adventurous with books. I read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and that helped me warm up to a different genre. My big reading spurt, however, is all thanks to The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The book that got me into book blogging? Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. It was after reading them that I realized I wanted to have a blog solely on books and not just post my reviews on Goodreads.
Beans: The Filler – “The book with a whole lot of nothing going on”
This might be an unpopular opinion but I was really bored throughout Ruin & Rising by Leigh Bardugo, Fallen by Lauren Kate, Matched by Allie Condie, and In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken. I felt like the entirety of these books were devoid of action and progress to the plot.
Protein: The Building Block – “A book quote to live by”
So many great quotes so I’ll go with one that I recently read:
Sometimes fate or life or whatever you want to call it, leaves a door a little open and you walk through it. But sometimes it locks the door and you have to find the key, or pick the lock, or knock the damn thing down. And sometimes, it doesn’t even show you the door, and you have to build it yourself. But if you keep waiting for the doors to be opened for you… I think you’ll have a hard time finding single happiness, let alone that double portion.
Inspiring isn’t it? It’s from Just One Year by Gayle Forman
Fajitas: The Crunch of Texture – “A book with immaculate world-building”
One of my favorite worlds that I’ve read is Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas!
Salsa: The Dance of Flavour – “A book that kept you on your toes”
Okay, I was absolutely nervous throughout Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I was so scared that my favorite characters would get hurt or even die. Then that epilogue happened. I was right to be nervous *sobs*
Corn: The Explosion of Sweetness – “A memorable scene with friendship/romance”
Okay, sorry there will be spoilers. One of my favorite scenes of friendship, with a possibility of romance (mostly friendship though — unfortunately) comes from Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas: Dorian showing and telling Chaol about his loyalty and love for Celaena, no matter her background/upbringing.
Now for romance, spoilers as well, comes from Cress by Marissa Meyer: Prince Kai and Cinder finally talk out their issues and kiss! Major swooning and fangirling here!
Cheese: The Bond of Calcium – “Two characters from different books you wish could be friends”
I think it would’ve been cool if America from The Selection by Kiera Cass and Cinder from … erhm Cinder by Marissa Meyer met and became friends. They’re in different situations, yet similar kinds, with the possibility of ruling over a kingdom. They could’ve helped each other out, give each other tips or something haha
Sour Cream: The Tangy Topper – “The quirkiest character you’ve ever read (protagonist or supporting)”
Quirky? I hate to have to choose another character from a book I’ve already talked about on this post but she was the first that came to mind. Iko from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer! She’s so cute and funny.
Guacamole: The Cost of Creaminess – “A book you paid too much for”
I’m pretty good with buying cheaper versions of books. I usually buy them used so I’d say the books I paid too much for are the ones I pre-order on Barnes and Noble because they are signed and exclusive editions: The One and The Heir by Kiera Cass. Other than that, I’d say my collection of The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare — I have about 3 copies of each book.
Lettuce: The Handful of Crispness – “A refreshing concept/theme in a book”
I was close to not answering this one because I couldn’t think of something. Then, light bulb! Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan was so refreshing. It’s written for a younger audience and I think that’s why it was light. It was fun, entertaining, and it taught some Greek mythology!
Chips: Le Pièce de Résistance – “A must-read recommendation [if you like this book/genre—you decide!]”
I’ll always recommend Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (fantasy), Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout (science fiction), and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (contemporary)!
Tabasco: The Kick to the Face – “Your favorite fight/action sequence”
I feel like I haven’t read too many fight sequences, so I’ll say the final battle in The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan and that last battle in Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas!
