Spicy Pumpkin Latte Book Tag! // ft. a ton of books i am thankful for (and a couple i’m not)

Hi friends! Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!! I hope that you all are having the loveliest day with family, friends, and well, food! I dedided that today was a perfect day to do this tag, because I get to talk about some incredible books. I was tagged by the incredible Blogger Books, so thank you so much!

Pumpkin Spice Latte: a book you didn’t think you’d love

First of all: I ACTUALLY DO LIKE PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES HELLO. Although if anything, I probably don’t love them as much as I thought I would. Too much coffee, not enough spice imo. Anyways, y’all are probably tired of seeing this book pop up* this book truly did surprise me in the best of ways, and I love it very much.

*”iT’s bEEn a YEaR” you say

Hot Apple Cider: a book that got you a bit hot under the collar

*coughs* the interesting twist in romantic intentions maaaay be half the reason I quit this series.

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate: a book that felt like a warm hug

The first Harry Potter book is legendary. The wintery, Christmas scenes especially make me so, so happy. Reading this book is the equivalent of cudling with a fuzzy blanket downing hot chocolate so fast you burn your tongue while a Christmas movie is on*.

*notice how i didn’t say hallmark? that is because i do not much like the hallmark movies. i know, i can hear your gasp from wherever i am right now.

Maple Pecan Latte: a book you enjoyed that was hard to get into

WHAT EVEN IS A MAPLE PECAN LATTE. I’m highkey disgusted. Strange the Dreamer is…beautiful. Impossibly breathtaking to say the least. However, I could not for the life of me understand the synopsis, and it took forever to get moving. But once it did, there was no going back.

London Fog: a vanilla character

The romantic interest in Warcross had zero! Absolutely zero! personality. He was the basic rich bad boy type. I mean, he could have run off, gotten tattoos, bought a Harley, murdered a few families and I wouldn’t be surprised. He also could have gone daisy picking in a field and I still wouldn’t be surprised.

Hot Buttered Rum: a book that was velvety smooth to read

I don’t really know what this question means but hey, I didn’t have any trouble following along in The Sun Is Also A Star! The plot was sweet, and kind of deep if I’m being honest.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew: a character whose temperament is icy cold

I just remembered that The Commandment existed and WOW do I hate her. The callousness, the cruelty…Sabaa Tahir is incredible at portraying how monstrous some humans really can be. The Commandment has no guilt. She has no heart. SHE’S AWFUL.

Salted Caramel Mocha: a book you’re salty about

Clones? Check. Mystery? Check. New student with dead best friend’s face? Check, check, and check again. I should have loved this! But the plot didn’t have a lot of sustenance, the main character was kind of annoying, and I still don’t know what personality the romantic interest was going for. This had a lot of potential but ended up being really disappointing.

Honey Bee Latte: a character who is sweet

Jem Carstairs is short for An Angel Who Deserves The Actual World. He is thoughtful and selfless and AH I’M GOING TO TEAR UP JUST THINKING ABOUT HOW MUCH I LOVE HIM.

Gingerbread Latte: a character you’d take home for Christmas

I’d highkey take Carswell Thorne home with me for Christmas just to watch the sparks fly. You’ll find me rolling in a corner laughing hysterically while Thorne desperately tries to impress everyone who ain’t having it.

  1. Thanks so much for doing the tag and omg your answers are everything! And I’m never getting tired of If We Were Villains – honestly, I’m so thankful you introduced me to this gem of a book! And ohhhhh yes, Harry Potter feels like such a hug, I really have to reread it during Christmas… And the Commander is one of the coldest people ever, I remember being super terrified of her…
    And I also couldn’t get into Strange the Dreamer, I eventually stopped because I wasn’t able to grip a plot and it was just too slow for me – but I’ll try again if you say it was really good!
    And OOOOO Thorne and Jem – yessss!!!!!
    Happy reading!

      omg SAME and you’re welcome haha, I’m so so glad you adored it just as much as me!
      YASSS HP is the best and the Commandment is the definition of terrifying😅
      aww, okay! I think it’s super slow and confusing for the first half but I ended up really loving it by the end. But that’s just me, I totally understand if you’re not interested lol!
      Happy reading to you too💜

  2. Thank you so much for the tag ❤ and I’m really sorry for taking so long to respond to it. I should get it posted fairly soon though (:
    I loved reading your answers ❤❤ I seriously need to hurry up and read An Ember In The Ashes; your comments on the third book in the series made me even more desperate to get on with it! And I’m seriously looking forward to reading about Jem again soon; I fully intend to re-read the trilogy before Chain Of Gold comes out in March.I’ll definitely have to check out We Were Villains sometime too; you’re the second person that I’ve seen mention it recently.
    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving ❤❤
