Of Cookies and Books Tag

So my best friend, Jules, tagged me in the Of Cookies and Books tag. Basically, there are eight different 'cookie' flavors and a description to go with them. I have to choose a book that goes with each one. It took a bit of thought, but I finally got my list together. All of the pictures are mine except for the second one, which I pulled from Amazon.

~Chocolate chip (a book that never gets old)~

Me, Just Different by Stephanie Morrill

I just got this book last October, but I fell in love with it. I read it three times within a few months of getting it. I usually take it with me on vacations, since it's pretty small and packed with goodness. It could probably work with the next cookie as well, but I'll try and find a different book for that one. But ladies and gentlemen, this is a fantastic book that I so desperately needed. #loveit #goreadit

~Dutch snowballs (a book that gave you an unexpected surprise)~

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy

When my mom assigned this book to me many years ago, I thought it was going to be some stupid book that I would haul myself through just to get the school credit then hate it for the rest of my life. LOL. Nope! I loved this book. I haven't read it in years, mostly because we got it on Kindle and I don't read many Kindle books. But I think I'll probably break down and get physical copies of it soon. After I finish completing my Tolkien collection, of course. 

~Molasses (a book with a character that gets into a sticky situation)~

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

Quite frankly, I could have put any one of the Rick Riordan books in here and it would have fit. But this one got my emotions all in a tangled mess. #whyunclerick #why

~Oreo (a book dealing with the light and the darkness)~

By Darkness Hid by Jill Williamson

This was the first book that came to mind when I was looking at my shelf for this tag, seeing as half the land is in darkness and the other half is in the light. I haven't read the rest of the books in the series, so please don't spoil it for me! I'm waiting to get the next ones. 

~Sugar (a book with a sugary sweet villain)~

The Lost Girl of Astor Street by Stephanie Morrill

I am not going to talk about this one much because I don't do spoilers. I'm not mean that way. But anyone who has read it knows that the villain is sweet at first sight, but not quite right. 

~Monster (a book that confused your emotions)~

The Return of the King by J.R.R Tolkien

I really wish this picture was able to capture the awesomeness that is my Tolkien collection. It's pretty epic. But anyway, back to the description. I'm not quite sure what to do with the ending of this book. I don't really have it in me to be happy for any of the characters. But I guess it was a real ending where things don't always work out the way we want them to. *goes to a corner and ponders the meaning of life*

~Snickerdoodle (a book that made you laugh)~

Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson

Do I need to say anything about this one? 

~Peanut butter (a book with a nutty character)~

The Wide Window by Lemony Snicket

Again, I could have put any one of the Series of Unfortunate Events books in here and it would have worked. They all have nutty characters. But can we just talk about Aunt Josephine for a minute? What a character!

~The Re-Tag~

I'm not very good at finding people to tag, so from here on out I'm just going to wing it and pray that they are cool with it and haven't already been tagged for it. And if they have been tagged or don't want to do it, they can just ignore me and go about their merry way as the awesome people they are. 

Anyway, for this one, I tag Melissa at Quill Pen Writer.

So now to y'all! Have you read any of these books? Do you have your own answers? Feel free to fangirl (or fanboy) as much as you'd like!


  1. I've read the Lost Girl of Astor street. I have it on my old Kindle. (I just got a newer kindle recently as my old one has a sense of humor of when it thinks it should shut down.) I have to say hi-fi just doesn't seem to be something I enjoy as much, which is why I never reviewed the book on my blog. However, as I think about it, there were many great elements to the book. I think anyone who enjoys historical fiction will enjoy that book. Maybe I'll review it for that purpose.

    I loved seeing your answers. Great job! :)

    1. So I'm not the only one who's Kindle shut down on them? Yay! My mom and sister have newer ones, which seem to work better. Maybe they have most of the bugs worked out of them now.

    2. Well, my old Kindle was from five years ago. I used the heck out of it, so I'm pretty sure it was its time, lol. (When it would stay on, it worked fine.) It can be very frustrating. I had the first generation one. Now I have the sixth generation, I think. I like it. Its a little bigger, but it works really well. I recommend it. :)

  2. I love the books! By Darkness Hid...is that the copy I gave you (and signed, lol)?

    1. Yep! That's the one! I'll never give that one up!

  3. Yesss I know what you mean about The Lost Girl of Astor Street's villain! Sweet on the outside, but bitter on the inside...
    Thanks for the tag Sarah! I'll try to get to it as soon as I can. :)

    1. Yes! Exactly!

      Can't wait to read your answers!
