I was tagged to do the wine book tag by Beth @ Reading Every Night back in the middle of December. Sorry it’s taken me awhile to get to, but thanks for the tag! This is honestly the perfect tag for me because I’ve recently kind of fallen in love with wine (well, white wine at least). These questions were quite difficult, but I managed to come up with answers. Without further ado…
Box Wine: A book that people will judge you for liking but you like it anyway.
The only thing that really comes to mind is Allegiant. I feel like generally speaking this community isn’t really judgmental with what books you do/don’t like, so I don’t know what else to say here, haha. But Allegiant probably works pretty well since most people seem to really hate this book, especially the ending. I, however, loved it.
Organic Wine: A book that doesn’t have any added crap in it and is just written perfectly.
Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall. You couldn’t think I would get through a tag without mentioning this, right? Might as well get it out of the way. 😉 I’m pretty sure you all know how much I love this book already so I won’t say anything other than this: please read this beautiful, wonderful book!
Gluehwein: A really spicy, wintry read.
I’m not totally sure why, but I always associate Harry Potter with winter so that’s what I’m going with, especially since I can’t think of any other wintry books, haha.
Sauvignon Blanc: A really sharp and aggressive read that you couldn’t put down.
Nemesis by Brendan Reichs gets this one (although I’ll admit I’m not quite sure what a “sharp” read is…). There was so much going on throughout this book but it was really fantastically written and left me wanting the next book ASAP. Unfortunately for me, this book isn’t even out yet so I have quite a bit of waiting to do…
Pinot Noir: A book you didn’t expect much from but ended up getting blown away.
Dig Too Deep by Amy Allgeyer. I had heard nothing about this book (and I think even almost a year later, I’ve only seen one other blogger mention it and that was on Twitter) so I wasn’t really sure what to expect of it and therefore wasn’t expecting much. But this was honestly a really great book that is, sadly, become more relevant with its focus on environmentalism. This book is so underrated.
Chardonnay: A good summer read that was super-zesty.
City Love by Susane Colasanti. Anytime someone mentions “summer reads” contemporary romance always comes to mind. As for being super-zesty, I think City Love meets that criteria pretty well, too.
Rose: A book that has a little bit of everything in it.
Hmm… The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid. This was such an interesting mix of sci-fi, romance, political intrigue, and more. If you haven’t read this yet, I’d definitely recommend it!
Shiraz: A full-bodied book that is dark and juicy.
I’m really struggling to come up with a book for this one. Maybe A Darker Shade of Magic? I feel like that fits this fairly well…
Merlot: A smooth easy read with a soft finish.
The Selection by Kiera Cass. I haven’t read the whole series, only the first book, so I don’t know if the whole series is necessarily a smooth read with a soft finish. But the first book definitely is.
Champagne: Your favorite book.
Ummm this is so cruel, let’s be real. I can’t choose a favorite book! I’ll just go with my favorite book that I’ve read last year and haven’t mentioned already: Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. Sepetys is such a wonderful author; any of her books could’ve taken this spot.
Because I’m lazy and writing this last minute, I’m not going to tag anyone. But if you want to do it, by all means, consider yourself tagged!
