I was looking for a nice tag to do on this Wednesday evening whilst I relaxed and watched the football (if watching the football can be called relaxing). I was looking on Thrice Read, because I think we all know by now that the home of the good book tag is on their blog! And because I love books and cheese, I decided that this was the best tag for me!
- Pingback the original creator (Sydney @ Fire and Rain Books) so she can see all your cheesy goodness answers.
- Pingback the person who tagged you (as per usual).
The traditional cheese: Name your favourite classic novel.
I don’t read a huge amount of classics, but, I am really trying to broaden the number I’ve read. I think my favourites are probably The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The hole-y cheese: Name an emotional roller coaster.
I can’t really say that I have a huge amount of feels when it comes to books, I love them but I don’t usually get the whole roller coaster thing. That said, Shades of Magic by V E Schwab did take me on a bit of a ride.
The controversial cheese: Name an unpopular book opinion you have.
I just don’t get Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I didn’t enjoy it, I’ve been put off Austen, and just don’t think it’s that good.
The favourite cheese: Name an author you always want more of.
Erm, right now I would always take a bit more Leigh Bardugo with a healthy helping of some V E Schwab. I’m always game for a bit of J K Rowling too.
The Dutch cheese: Name a book that makes you want to travel.
I mean pretty much any book not set in England makes me want to travel, but mostly travel memoirs such as Dom Joly’s The Dark Tourist or Sir David Attenborough’s Life on Air.
The fake cheese: Name your least favourite book / a book you love to hate on.
D’you know what book I absolutely hate? American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. I read it recently, and it was so bad that I pretty much destroyed it in my review.
The mixed cheese: Name your favourite ship.
Hmmm…..erm…..right….well then….OK so let’s think about this one….I don’t know. I ship hard, but also ship fleetingly. I will give my all to a ship and forget it a week later. I did really ship Alucard and Rhy in Shades of Magic and I am all about the love parallelogram in Stephanie Meyer’s The Host.
The simple cheese: Name an old favourite you’ll never stop loving.
I mean, it goes without saying that Harry Potter would be on this list, but I really have a love for The Host. The old fvaourite I’ll love forever is The BFG by Roald Dahl.
The spicy cheese: Name a book you can’t judge by its cover.
Erm, any book ever? We really shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover ever should we? But also. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, because it looks like a run of the mill YA contemporary but it’s so so so much more than that.
The monster cheese: Name a villain that you wish never had the joy of eating cheese again.
I just really think that Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate of Events is the meanest most irredeemable character and I wish him a cheeseless existence.
I am rubbish with tagging specific people, so, if you would like to take part then please feel free to tag yourself and take part. I look forward to seeing your answers!
