The Ice Cream Book Tag
Now I couldn't find the original tag, but I linked bookables's video in the media. She's a great BookTuber. :)
So I don’t really like ice cream AT THE MOMENT (I really love it otherwise), because I ate it when I shouldn’t have, and I was in bed for a week, which sucked. But I really wanted to do this tag before autumn/winter really takes over, so here it is.
So in this tag, there are gonna be different flavours of ice cream (seeing as how it’s an ice cream book tag) and a question for each flavour. Are you ready? Let’s get to it.
Peanut butter: A very long book series that you want to read but probably won’t and why.
Ah, this is an easy one.
Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. Now I know the whole world is going gaga over it; I mean, the books are popular, the TV show tops even that, but I just don’t feel like reading the books!
This is mostly because the series is very intimidating. I mean seriously. Each book is probably 800+ pages, and the third and the fifth books are divided into two parts, which makes it seven books in total. Also, nothing about the series interests me at ALL. They just seem so…blah.
So sorry Mr. Martin, but it’s gonna be a long wait for you if you want a review.
I've never tasted peanut butter flavoured ice cream, come to think of it…would I want to? I'm not so sure. I don’t particularly love it on bread either.
Chocolate: A book/series that you would read again and again and again and again and…
For this, I would like to say the Skulduggery Pleasant series (Derek Landy) or the Harry Potter series (J K Rowling). Skulduggery Pleasant because it has loads of kick ass moments along with a plentiful serving of humour, and Harry Potter because, well…you get it, don’t you. Unless you’re not a Potterhead. In which case, come to me another time, and my fist, I mean, I shall tell you why.
I’ve actually gotten tired of chocolate flavour recently. So I usually take a chocolate & vanilla mix. That’s yum.
Pistachio: A book with a green cover.
Inheritance by Christopher Paolini is the greenest book I have in my collection, and it is totally awesome. You should see it. (Picture in the mediaà)
Who eats PISTACHIO??? Is it a good flavour?
Strawberry: A book with the cutest romance.
In my last tag, I very lamely declared Percy and Annabeth the ‘Best Couple’ and I thought that was the last I’d see of questions relating to romance.
I DO NOT READ ROMANCE. Hence I am more clueless than a headless chicken about this one, and I shall be about questions like this. I'm sorry, I just can’t judge any sort of romance in any book. I don’t find it cute. I find it ever so slightly annoying.
I don’t even like strawberry flavour. The fruit is SO much better. Anyone with me?
Lemon: A book with a sour ending.
I've read plenty of books with endings I don’t like, but the ending of this particular book, series in fact, seemed a little off and lost in terms of logic.
Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz. Now don’t get me wrong; I LOVE the series. I think it has the best action sequences, one of the best protagonists and best plots, but that ending was just an eyebrow raise, and I didn’t quite like it on afterthought.
I haven’t tasted lemon ice cream either. Is it sour? But doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose of ice cream? I mean, it’s supposed to be sweet…
Mint: A children’s book that you like.
Strike off that ‘like’ and make it ‘love’, because I shall LOVE anything written by Roald Dahl (especially Matilda) and Enid Blyton (especially the Five Find Outers and Malory Towers) for as long as I live and into the afterlife if that’s possible. I'm serious. Those authors have been my childhood; take them away and it’s like I never started reading.
I think I was introduced to reading because of Enid Blyton, and then Mr. Dahl came along, but oh well, it doesn’t matter. They’re great. I love them.
Mint shouldn’t have been the flavour for this question. I don’t like mint very much and the books are half my life.
Vanilla: Your favourite classic.
Now that flavour makes sense.
My favourite classic changes from time to time, but at the moment, it’s Anne of Green Gables by L M Montgomery.
It follows the story of an orphan girl Anne Shirley, who is sent to live at Green Gables with the Cuthberts, who actually wanted a boy, but through a misunderstanding, end up with Anne instead- a vivacious, energetic and imaginative child who can talk the hind leg off a donkey any time of the day. The rest of the classic follows her life, experiences and adventures at Green Gables, and I think it’s a great read.
Other personal favourites of mine include ‘A Little Princess’ and ‘The Secret Garden’, both by Frances Hodgson Burnett, but like I said, at the moment, Anne takes the cake (or rather the ice cream; lame joke, I know).
I absolutely adore vanilla flavoured anything. It’s like a flavour for all the world and moods.
Whipped Cream: A very long book that you read really fast.
Again, I'm gonna say Inheritance by Christopher Paolini. It is the fourth book in the Inheritance Cycle, and I love the series so much; it’s like my perfect blend of fantasy and adventure. You should read it too. It’s awesome.
Clocking at 849 pages to be precise, ‘Inheritance’ is the longest book I’ve ever read, and while it may not be the fastest book I’ve ever read, I finished it in the span of a day and a half (with plenty of breaks), and that counts for some fast reading, so yeah…’Inheritance’ it is.
I don’t really get how whipped cream is a flavour, but I'm gonna go along with it anyway. I like whipped cream as a topping.
So that’s it for this very edible tag. I wish there were more flavours that I liked (Cookies n’ Cream especially, and there’s also Banana) but then (I was so tempted to say this, don’t judge me) the world is not a wish granting factory. Guess which book that’s from.
I hope you enjoyed this, and I will have another tag up soon. It’s not so much as finding the tags as thinking it over that’s the problem. I spend more time thinking about the questions that typing all this down, but I shall try to be quick. :D
Thanks everyone; and have a great night!
