The Waffle Book Tag πŸ’–

Waffle Book Tag

Hello fellow bookworms πŸ’–Β When I saw that there was a Waffle Book Tag I had to immediately drop everything and go do it, because I LOVE waffles 😍 I like pancakes too (there’s a book tag for that too), but waffles are my first love and writing the answers to these questions has left me with a huge craving for waffles 😭 (also: why is there a pancake but not a waffle emoji? The injustice 😱) Thank you so much fellow waffle lover Kat @ novelsandwaffles for creating this Tag, that was a true blessing! Definitely check out her blog, she’s such a lovely person and there are more waffles waiting! I’ll be using Kat’s (very delicious looking) graphics that she created for the Tag because they are stunning, her designs are always so aesthetically pleasing ❀

The RulesΒ πŸ’–

  • Link back to the original creator,Β Kat @ Novels & Waffles
  • Feel free to use any of the waffle graphics in this post, just make sure to credit Kat (pretty pretty please with lots of maple syrup on top)
  • Tag as many people as you want (or don’t want) to. No pressure here, folks πŸ™‚

I’m taggingΒ πŸ’–Β 

Let's Talk (2)

A Christmas Carol (Charles Dickens) πŸ’– This is my absolute favorite classic, because I’m such a festive person and like Christmas themed stories πŸŽ„ (not to be one of these people but I wish it was the most wonderful time of the year again) I’m usually not a big fan of classics, but A Christmas Carol is the exception (maybe alongside with Alice in Wonderland … obviously πŸ˜‚ & Macbeth) and I reread it very year for Christmas, meaning that I have read it a lot of times already! I also like the animated Disney movie, it’s great and never fails to put me in the Christmas spirit 😍

Only 131 days till Christmas

HeartstopperΒ (Alice Oseman) πŸ’– This was surprisingly hard to pick, because most books I read are … never 100% wholesome πŸ˜‚ Even those that I consider to be comfort reads have some more serious/darker aspects (e.g. I wanted to pick Carry On, but like … kidnapping, the weird ritual and some stuff during the climay of the story are darker), but then Heartstopper is closest to wholesome πŸ’— I haven’t gotten a copy of the graphic novels but I did read the story on Tapas last December (still not caught up) and that was such a good call, because I had so much fun resding the story and it warmed my heart. The two main characters are cuties and deserve the world! 😍

The Lightning ThiefΒ (Rick Riordan)Β πŸ’–Β Not being from the US, I’ve never had eggo waffles (but I would like to, send me the waffles), but I have a lot of nostalgia reads. One of them is and will always be Percy Jackson, because I loved them way before I got into more of Rick Riordan’s books. I read them ages ago (and *gasp* I actually saw the movie first, that’s how I discovered the books in the first place, so I think at least some good came out of the adaption at last) and then got addicted to the rest of Rick Riordan’s works when I finally caught up to them years later πŸ’— I’m currently reread the books because after finishing The Blood of Olympus I was in SUCH a Percy Jackson mood, I love my chaotic demigods so much 😍

El – hero and devourer of eggo waffles ❀

Adrian EverheartΒ (Renegades)Β πŸ’–Β He’s such a BIG SOFTIE it’s adorable. I genuinely love Adrian so much, because he’s such a kind person and a really good leader of his team/friends, who are definitely part of his personal found family. It’s really hard to dislike him, because Adrian is fiercely loyal to his friends and family and in general just such a sweet character, he’ll melt your heart ❀ Among my favorite moments are when he brought his love interest a sandwich in the middle of the night, because he was worried that she might be hungry and alone – softie alert 😭 You can just tell that Adrian has a good heart and is always trying to do this best to protect others!

The Burning MazeΒ (Renegades)Β πŸ’– ahahaha … this one still HURTS so MUCH, so I immediately thought of it when I saw the prompt, so I’ll do my best to explain without revealing any spoilers. My heart is still broken, because The Burning Maze turns the Series into a dark direction by having a lot more heavy themes and a devastating climax that teared my heart right out of my chest πŸ’” Anyone who has read the book can probably guess what I’m talking about and it hit me so hard, especially the aftermath and how realistically it was … I still get really sad thinking about it 😭 That makes me kind of nervous for the next book, because the trend off heavier books could continue and I fear for basically everyone!

Here Lies Daniel TateΒ (Cristin Terrill)Β πŸ’– I like that the prompt is so open, as it could apply to a unique book but also one that is special to you for some reason. For me that has to be one of my more recent reads, because it’s out of my comfort zone and a genre I don’t reach for at all: thriller/mystery. However, it turned out to be a fantastic read that gripped me and didn’t let me go until the end. Here Lies Daniel Tate is about a boy who is impersonating a missing person and gets sucked into the intrigue of his rich family that has lots of deadly sequels. This book messed with me, it did have some decent twists (not 100% surprising, but still good) and the ending whacked me over the head most of all 😱 I need some answers, because I have theories about it!!

Me trying to connect the dots

Red QueenΒ (Victoria Aveyard)Β πŸ’–Β First of all, Maple Syrup is the best and I wish I had it more often. Second, I really have a soft spot for these books. There is a lot of mixed opinion about them, which I kind of get, but for me they have always been great and enjoyable. I read the first book in 216, right when I got back to reding, it wasn’t only the first book I read this year, it was the first book I loved after a long time. That pretty much cemented my love for the Series, and I ended up adoring them. Something about them really got me invested (especially the second book, for some reason it like really helped me to sort out some things before I went off to college) and after a reread I feel the same. I stuck it out until the last book came out last year (still haven’t read the novella collection, but novellas are never high on my priority list) πŸ’•

Slytherin ScarfΒ (+ Truthwitch Candle)Β πŸ’–Β This was a bit harder to answer, because I had to think if I had a clear favorite. I don’t have that much bookish merch, but my Slytherin Scarf is much beloved for years now and I looove wearing it in autumn and winter, because it’s so comfortable and cozy. Plus, it makes me feel all magical and confident πŸ’— Now why do I own a Slytherin scarf if I’m a Hufflepuff? 😱 I have a lot of Slytherin merch because I was obsessed with the house and still find it fascinating (it’s my favorite house along with my own house of course) + I think green suits me 🐍 In other fandoms, I love the Truthwitch candle that I won along with other merch in a giveaway, I’m eternally grateful to have gotten merch for one of my favorite Series 😭

Let's Talk (1)Do you like waffles? What is a Series that you have stuck with until the every end? πŸ’–

  1. Great answers for this tag Caro, I loved reading your post. πŸ™‚ Heartstopper is definitely a sweet story, I love seeing the relationship develop between Nick and Charlie (even more now I’ve read Solitaire). Have you read the second volume yet? I’ve got it on my to-read list, and sitting on my bookshelves, but haven’t gotten around to actually picking it up yet.
    Also that’s a lovely scarf, I have a Hufflepuff one that’s the same as the one Newt had in the Fantastic Beasts movies and it’s one of my favourite bookish accessories, along with my Shades of Magic pin.
    Again great post. πŸ™‚ ❀

    1. Thank you so much, Beth! ❀ Heartstopper was really cute! I read the webcomic first so I think that included the second volume as well, but I’m not caught up and also haven’t gotten my copies of the books yet. I do plan on reading Solitaire soon though πŸ™‚
      Omg I want the Newt scarf SO badly, it looks really cozy! πŸ₯°
      Thank you for reading πŸ’•

      1. I’ve been reading it online but I also have the volumes. I’ve probably already read all of the second volume but I never mark it off on Goodreads until I’ve read the actual book, gotten get around to that soon. πŸ™‚
        It’s worth getting, I couldn’t resist because I love the Fantastic Beasts films, love Newt Scamander and I’m a Hufflepuff.
        That’s all right. πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. I keep seeing Heartstopper everywhere, and I definitely want to try and read graphic novels so it might be the first one I pick up! I read the first Red Queen book a few years, but never continued with the series because I just didn’t click? But recently, I learned that my initial assumption that it was fantasy was wrong, and it’s actually dystopia (how I didn’t realize, I’m not sure) so I’m considering picking it up again and giving it another chance πŸ™‚ I like waffles a lot, but I’m more of a crΓͺpes person probably because I grew up in France and they’re a staple β™₯

    1. Heartstopper was such a cute graphic novel, I really liked the artstyle and story πŸ₯° I personally like the second Red Queen novel the best πŸ™‚ It also seems to be a genre mix because it has fantasy elements but is also set in the US in a far future! Ohhh crΓͺpes are delicious as well❀
