I was tagged by the lovely Lara @ABundleOfBooks to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out her blog!
I also wanted to say that I’m sorry for making you hungry. Why? Well, I decided that it was a great idea to include pictures of the pastries mentioned. And yes, I made myself quiet hungry as well. Anyway, you have been warned! Procede at your own risk.
CROISSANT: NAME A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES THAT EVERYONE (INCLUDING YOU) LOVES
The first book series that came to my mind is (unsurprisingly) Harry Potter. But I ALWAYS mention this series, so I thought I would change it up a bit. Just recently I read Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin and I absolutely ADORED this book! It was seriously amazing. (And you can read my full review here.) Plus everyone else seems to love this book as well, so it fits perfectly for this category.
MACARONS: NAME A BOOK THAT WAS HARD TO GET THROUGH BUT WORTH IT IN THE END
The first one that came to my mind is Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. The writing style is beautiful, but also hard to follow. At times I couldn’t tell which character was narrating the story. All in all it was hard to get through (and it’s definitely not one of my favourite books), but I’m very glad that I read it. And it made me want to read something else by Virginia Woolf as well.
VOL-AU-VENT: NAME A BOOK THAT YOU THOUGHT WILL BE AMAZING BUT FELL FLAT
For me this definitely has to be Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. I was very exited about this book, especially since I had seen people loving it. It simply sounds like my type of book/story so that made me even more exited to read it. Sadly it just fell flat for me. I think this might be my biggest disappointment of the year. (Want to know more details? I wrote a rambling review on goodreads, it’s spoiler-free.)
PAIN-AU-CHOCOLAT: NAME A BOOK THAT YOU THOUGHT WOULD BE ONE THING BUT TURNED OUT TO BE SOMETHING ELSE
I have to go with Nimona by Noelle Stevenson for this one. This graphic novel was nothing like I thought it would be! I expected a lighthearted and fun story (mostly because of the art style and because I didn’t look up any reviews), but that wasn’t the case. Not going into any detail, because of spoilers.
PROFITEROLE: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT DOESN’T GET ENOUGH ATTENTION
How I Found You by Gabriella Lepore is a highly underrated book and it’s one I adored when I read it. If you are a fan of supernatural and books with a great romance I can only recommend it! (Though it’s been a really long time since I read this book, I seriously need to do a reread of it some time soon.)
CROQUEMBOUCHE: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT’S COMPLETELY COMPLEX
The first series that came to mind is A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. So we shall go with that one. I’m sure everyone is familiar with how complex this world and series is. So I don’t think much explaining is needed.
NAPOLEON: NAME A MOVIE OR TV SHOW BASED OFF A BOOK THAT YOU LIKED BETTER THAN THE BOOK ITSELF
I would definitely have to go with The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. I did very much enjoy the book, but I feel as if the scary and creepy things that were happening were better portrayed in the movie. Though the book was very atmospheric and I enjoyed that about it vre much. Basically the movie scared me a lot more. (Which is obvious, since I did see the horror stuff and didn’t just read about it. Plus the sound is also a big factor.)
EMPANADA: NAME A BOOK THAT WAS BITTERSWEET
If you have read A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness you definitely know why I chose it for this category. If not, you should definitely read it! (Not going to go into any detail about this book, just read it – though I do have a review of it, if you are interested.)
KOLOMPEH: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT TAKES PLACE SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN YOUR OWN COUNTRY
Basically every book ever. I’m from a small European country and I haven’t read many books that are set there. (Aside from the classics from the authors from my country.) I decided to go with The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan for this one. The story takes place in many different countries, none that are my own. (So it’s perfect for this category!)
PATE-A-CHOUX: NAME A FOOD FROM A BOOK OR SERIES THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY
I want to try basically ANY food or drink from the Harry Potter world. Growing up reading Harry Potter just made me interested in all the delicious (and weird) foods that the Wizarding World has to offer!

That’s all for this tag!
I seriously enjoyed writing it, the questions were a lot of fun! Though I don’t think the pictures were one of my best ideas…Now I’m really hungry.
Thank you very much for reading. I hope you have a wonderful day!
