Hello beautiful people!
Like waffles … my other food love is PANCAKES! I seriously LOVE pancakes … okay, let’s be real … I love food, especially breakfast food. But yes … pancakes are just fantastic. All these beautiful people who keep creating book tags based off of food are FANTASTIC by the way.
Thank you Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall for tagging me in The Pancake Book Tag. I’m VERY pleased to have been tagged in this. Kelly, as most of you PROBABLY know, is a beautiful human being.

|| IMPORTANT NOTE ||
The prompt for “Pancakes and Crispy Bacon” (the second last one) has potential spoilers regarding a perfect COUPLE (though it’s PRETTY obvious either way when you read the series). So if you DON’T want to know, please skip. I still haven’t figured out the whole HTML “spoiler” thing.
100 Days of Sunlight by Abbie Emmons ↠ I can’t stop gushing over this book. Emmons has this natural ability to capture your attention on the writing alone. The story is fascinating and the characters are lovely … but the writing?? SPECTACULAR! I couldn’t get over the beauty of the words written in her novel.
Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo ↠ If anyone has the ability to think of a quick comeback or create a last minute change to a plan going wrong, it’s Kaz. Honestly, having his smarts would be a wonderful gift (and also a curse, I think). He’s PRETTY much 10 steps ahead of everyone, always planning out every outcome before his enemies have the time to execute those plans. If I needed help with a quest or mission, I’d want Kaz on my side.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins ↠ I know, I know … I complained A LOT about this book for CERTAIN reasons (spoiler, so I’m not saying) … but it’s STILL one of those happy books. It’s the kind of story that makes you see only beautiful things in the world and not all the scary things.
Rituals by Kelley Armstrong ↠ Though the series fell kind of short near the end … I still loved it. And after FINALLY getting my hands on all the books and finishing the series, I felt rather sad. I wasn’t ready to let the characters and the story go … hoping she MIGHT add one more book. BUT … I eventually moved on and continued my reading craze.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han ↠ Though I had some particular thoughts about this series, it was still lovely. But the last book? It just REALLY got to me. That feeling of being excited for graduating high school, going off to university, starting a new adventure … I remember that feeling and it was fantastic. The series in general just got to me about the simple days, just hanging with friends and the biggest worry being what my essay topic will be. I LOVE the age I’m at now, but I also loved so many parts of that earlier part of my life … this book (and series in general) gave me that.
Gabriel Walsh in The Cainsville Series by Kelley Armstrong ↠ I’m not gonna lie … I couldn’t STAND Gabriel at first. Sure, he’s smart and resourceful … but he’s a prick. But eventually he grows on you as he opens up more, and you begin to realize there’s more depth and history to his character as the series goes on.
Kill Code by Clive Fleury ↠ Oh yea … I had NO IDEA what was happening. Every time I thought I had the plot pegged, Fleury goes and messes with me. It was great to have a plot that, for once, I couldn’t figure out. Very sneaky, Fleury.
Chloe and Derek in The Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong ↠ EVERYONE knows these two are going to end up together within the first few interactions between these two. But I wasn’t sure how I felt, especially since Chloe’s this adorable sweetheart and Derek’s, well, Derek. He’s rude, bossy and controlling … but he slowly changes later and I start to really like them as a couple … they work really well.
Miss Trunchbull in Matilda by Roald Dahl ↠ … this should be self-explanatory. She’s an “educator” that abuses children and teachers, both verbally and physically. She goes against EVERYTHING an educator (and decent human being) should be. And she also will do anything to gain power and authority … which I can’t dive into since that’s a spoiler … but those who know … YOU KNOOOOOOOOOOOOW!
Side note: … Becky … HOW DO YOU NOT LIKE PEANUT BUTTER?! For me, this should be “a character that makes you swoon” ha-ha!
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston ↠ LGBTQA+ representation, different ethnic backgrounds, unique fashion styles and interests in life, diverse political beliefs … McQuiston really upped the diverse elements in this book. But what’s even better? She STILL managed to not make it pushy or SHOVED in your face with diversity. Honestly, this book is incredible both for this reason and SO much more.
Again, no pressure … especially if you’ve already been tagged!
