Coffee Book Tag

Clearly I am just using this Hiatus as an excuse to catch up on tags- which I sorely need to do!

And today I’ve been long overdue for a coffee break! So thanks so much to the sensational Words and Lyrics and the lovely Dreaming Through Literature!


Black: A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans


I say that as a fan

Peppermint Mocha: A book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year

chronicles of narnia.jpg

Gonna go with Narnia- cos it always makes me think of Christmas!

Hot Chocolate: A favorite children’s book

ballet shoes

Okay- for the sake of originality, I’m gonna go with Ballet Shoes- just cos I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on here before! Anyone else read it?

Double Shot of Espresso: A book that kept you on edge of your seat from start to finish



Starbucks: A book you see everywhere

serpent king

There’s a lot of those- I think for now I will mention Serpent King cos hopefully I’ll be reading it soon!

That Hipster Coffee Shop: A book by an Indie author

the martian

I don’t read many of these- but The Martian was technically an indie book first (technically so was Fifty Shades of Grey– but I think it’s best to give acolades to good books only!)

Oops! I Accidentally Got Decaf: A Book You Were Expecting More From


Where do I start? I’m gonna go with the Miniaturist cos I reviewed that most recently- but to be honest there are loads! (Unfortunately!)

The Perfect Blend: A book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but ultimately satisfying

amber spyglass

You’ll know why if you’ve read it!

Green Tea: A book or series that is quietly beautiful

brideshead revisited

Ooh quietly beautiful- that’s a lovely term- definitely Brideshead Revisited.

Chai Tea: A book or series that makes you dream of far off places


Earl Grey: A favorite classic


You know what I never mention this, for some reason, even though I love it

I tag:

That’s all for now- I will be back shortly- can’t wait to catch up! In the meantime  what book genre do you best like to enjoy over a coffee break?

      1. Ahh that’s cool – it was on my uni syllabus too, I had a ’19th century novel’ module and it was by far my favourite module. It was basically an excuse to study all my favourite classics. 🙂 I haven’t read this one since uni – you’ve inspired me to re-read it!

          1. Ooh that sounds fantastic, I’d love to study fairy tales, that’s awesome! Which ones did you cover on the course? I really miss studying books in general. Book blogging is an outlet for that, but I really do wish I could go back to uni 😊

            1. It was good- the selection of books was awesome- we did Renaissance Italian fairytales, grimms, Perrault, Victorian, Peter pan and modern fairytales (including the bloody chamber) to name a few. I sort of miss it- I preferred it at school tbh. I have to say- blogging beats it easily for me! 😛


  1. Amber Spyglass was indeed bitter-sweet 😦 Perhaps a little too bitter for my tastes at the time I read it, but it’s been ages since so I think I need to do a re-read.
    And I completely agree with Lord of the Rings… the Fellowship was slow going (I found it hard to get into), but once I made it through the first half I was hooked.


  2. Loved all your choices! I haven’t read His Dark Materials in such a long time! Maybe it’s time for a reread. Although the ending of The Amber Spyglass was indeed bittersweet! And Narnia is definitely a favorite of mine! 🙂

  3. I am going to have to find that Ballet Shoes one, I used to do Ballet and I loved it. I only gave it up because the girls I grew up with all started to turn nasty towards each other. I would love to read this one!


  4. YAS. I want you to read The Serpent King soon too! More people need to read it, because even though I see it everywhere, I don’t feel like a many read it.
    I don’t drink coffee though … so, over a TEA break I would probably read any book available. Maybe just not something with a very action filled plot, because then the time would be too short.
