CHOCOLATE — a dark book that you loved
I read Mexican Gothic over Halloween 2020, and it was even better than I’d anticipated. Honestly, I usually find hyped books to be pretty underwhelming, but this one was exactly what I needed to get into the spooky season.
Buy Mexican Gothic
VANILLA — favourite light read
RED VELVET — a book that gave you mixed emotions.
I have honestly never read a book that gave me so many mixed emotions. I wanted to love Addie LaRue as much as the rest of the internet, but I had trouble connecting with the main character. I respected her love of life, but I kept expecting her to learn her lesson about what is most important in life–you know, the relationships we build and the love we share. However, the Addie on the last page of the novel was not terribly different from the Addie on page one, in my opinion. Also, her toxic relationship with Luc was hard to ignore.
I actually really liked Henry, however, and found myself wishing that the novel had been written from his perspective instead. His character, despite being much younger than Addie, actually grew and changed in the story.
That said, this novel was one of the most beautifully written novels I’ve read (even though it was filled with truisms), and I enjoyed reading it.
You see my mixed emotions, yes?
CHEESECAKE — a book that you’d recommend to everyone
Daisy Jones and the Six is the book that I do recommend to everyone. It’s one of those books that, even if you aren’t an avid reader, you’ll enjoy it.
COFFEE — a book that you started but never finished.
Honestly, this book deserves my love and attention. However, every time I try to read it, I get distracted by something I have to read.
Buy Wicked Fox
CARROT — a book with great writing
You didn’t think I’d complete a list without this one, did you?
