The Pancake Book Tag

It’s time for another tag and this time it’s all about pancakes! I’d actually love to go and have some, or a waffle, sometime as a Christmas treat but I guess I’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Anyway thank you so much to the lovely Sophie @ Sophie’s Corner for tagging me to do this (: I really look forward to answering these questions and taking part in this tag that I’ve seen around so much since I started blogging. Please do make sure to check out Sophie’s answers to this tag and the rest of her wonderful page too!!

Rules:
  • Link back to the original creator in your post— who is Becky from Blogs of a Bookaholic once I’ve finished scheduling my posts for tomorrow I’m 100% checking out her page myself (:
  • Thank the person who tagged you– As I said above I was tagged by the lovely Sophie!!
  • Feel free to use any of my pancake graphics in your post, or create your own! (I have used Becky’s lovely graphics— look how wonderful they are!!)
  • Tag 5 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them.

Last time that I had to look up quotes for a tag I was left a bit awestruck by some of the beautiful ones in To Kill A Kingdom. I know that I loved the book when reading it but how on earth did I not pick up on how quoteable and breathtaking the writing was at the time?

I honestly can’t think of anyone better suited for this question than Jude from The Cruel Prince. Not only is she pretty sharp in the way that she can look after herself but she’s also one hell of a planner. She’s always thinking, scheming and struggling to keep her place in the world of the fae.

Once again I still need to pick up and read more stereotypical comfort reads! But I do plan to get to some soon. For now though it has to be Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban. There’s something so wonderful about slipping back into my favourite fictional world and what better way to do so than with my favourite book of the series? Although, in all honesty, if I pick one of these books up to read, I’ll probably end up re-reading the whole set.

Hmm… I’m not sure if I get book hangovers? At least not lately; instead I just randomly fall into slumps for no reason. But I’m working on it! I feel like Lord Of Shadows is definitely a book worthy of causing such a thing though. I mean, that ending?!? How on earth do you just simply pick up another book and move on after that?

The Wicked King definitely felt indulgent to me as I literally could not put it down. It had action, intrigue, twists and turns; a vast array of characters and enemies to lovers. Basically it had everything and each aspect was spectacular. What makes a more indulgent read than that?

I’m going to go for a more recent read for this answer and go with Dawes from Ninth House. Initially she seems cold and uncaring but I found myself surprisingly fond of her by the end of book one!

I need to read 13 Minutes again sometime but I think it should fit in with this question. There were definitely a lot of twists and turns involved in this book. Plus at least one major ‘OMG’ moment that I remember.

I think as I read the The Hunger Games books before seeing the movie I always wanted Katniss to end up with Gale. Then that ship was ruined for me (if you’re familiar with the book or movie you’ll know why) and at first I felt like she’d settled for Peeta. But now I really like them together. They went through such impossible, horrific events together and helped each other survive. Peeta’s love was crystal clear and so adorable. Katniss loved him, she was just oblivious to her feelings and I was too I think. But they really are perfect together.

Okay firstly I do like peanut butter :L Just to make that clear but anyway… what character could ever make me recoil as much as Count Olaf from A Series Of Unfortunate Events? Okay there are probably a few but he is pretty atrocious. Seriously he’s a terrible human being. And I’m pretty sure the physical descriptions of him were pretty unpleasant too.

I feel like Lady Midnight had almost everything that you could ask for in it when it comes to characters. There were people from different backgrounds and cultures, LGBT representation included and even a character with autism who was just tremendously well written! I adored them so, so much.

I’m honestly not sure who has and hasn’t done this tag already as I’ve seen it around rather a lot? So if you haven’t already done it, and want to do so, consider yourself tagged too! And obviously there’s no pressure to the people who I have mentioned to do this.

    1. It’s ok ❤️ and thank you so much ❤️ yes definitely everything about him is awful. Ooh sorry :L it’ll definitely make you want to pick up the next one. I still need to read the third as it wasn’t released when I read the first two and now I want to reread them before picking it up 😅 I hope you enjoy it though ❤️❤️

  1. Ahh, I really need to get on with my reread of The Shadowhunter Chronicles, so that I can finally read The Dark Artifices! I want to read those books so bad! Oh, and Count Olaf makes me recoil too. But peanut butter doesn’t. It’s actually good, okay? (But some are not my fave, haha.) I know it was a middle grade book, but Count Olaf’s level of obsession with the Baudelaire siblings was RIDICULOUS. I mean, he could’ve just robbed a bank or something, but he had to waste all that time and resources on pursuing them??

    1. Hopefully we’ll both manage it next year. It’s a lot of books but I’m sure we can do it 💕 oh I 100% agree with you, he’s awful but peanut butter isn’t, I like it too!! I’ve never thought of that – although I did frequently think most of the adults were stupid – but that’s very true 😂

  2. Aw.. I love this tag so much so I’m excited to see your answers!! The graphics are the cutest and obviously I love pancakes!!
    I still need to read To Kill A Kingdom, I’ve said that before I think but it is still true!!
    Ahh.. you are making me want to read The Cruel Prince series immediately!! I definitely feel like I will enjoy it!!
    Yes I think Dawes grew on me as well!! I really like the friendship between Alex and her that grew across the expanse of the book.
    I agree about The Hunger Games (I mean I have only watched the movies) but I shipped Katniss and Gale first too but then Peeta and Katniss really grew on me and now I can’t see it any other way. I think Peeta being so kind and Katniss being stubborn and hard on the outside matched so well.
    Lovely post, Charlotte!! I going to go have some pancakes now!! 😉

    1. I love the graphics too 😍😍 and it’s such a lovely tag (:
      Ah I hope you get a chance to soon. It’s really good!
      OMG you totally should, I love that series so, so much!! It’s amazing. I can’t believe I still haven’t read the final one.
      Yes same, she turned out so different from what I expected. And the friendship was lovely.
      Yes that’s so true, they are well matched and I sometimes feel like I didn’t realize it sooner as Katniss herself was oblivious to it 😂 but I definitely feel like Peeta is the better match for her now.
      Ooh enjoy ☺️

      1. Yes I agree!! 😍
        Thank you, I am hoping it’s do it soon! 😂
        Hopefully soon, I’ve heard good things about the Curse Workers series too by Holly!!
        Yeah I love female friendships in books!! 😊
        Yeah I think Katniss being oblivious did make you take longer to see Peeta as the one to stay with her. Yeah Peeta is great 😍
