Hello everyone! Today, I come to you with another book tag. This book tag was created by Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts and Jenna @ Reading with Jenna. I was tagged by Calliope @calliopethebookgoddess. (I know I’m shocked too, for once I’m doing a tag I was actually tagged for).
Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine whereby food is served in small (tapas-like) portions and is common during yum cha (which literally means: drinking tea). This tag is inspired by good company and good eats.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site
- Devour dim sum and answer the tag questions
- Tag five others to join your round table for some dim sum fun
- Food coma
TEA: A BOOK THAT STARTED OFF HOT BUT TURNED COLD QUICKLY
Umm…. Delirium I guess. I really liked it in the beginning, and ended up not even finishing because I got so annoyed with the main character.
CHIU CHOW DUMPLING: A BOOK THAT FEATURES ELEMENTS OF LAND AND SEA
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. For reasons very obvious if you have ever read a Percy Jackson book.
RICE NOODLE ROLL: A FAVOURITE MULTI-LAYERED CHARACTER OF YOURS (EG. TRAITS? SKILLS? MORALLY AMBIGUOUS?)
Ethan Walker from the 5th Wave. Not going to say why though because it’s kind of a spoiler.
SHRIMP DUMPLING: A BOOK WITH A TRANSPARENT BLURB THAT GIVES THE STORY AWAY
Virtually any contemporary novel I guess. Or, if you want a specific title, lets go with Twilight.
STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS: A BOOK THAT IS FLUFFY ON THE OUTSIDE BUT PACKS A PUNCH OF FLAVOUR (EG. MESSAGE? DEPTH? CONTROVERSY?)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Just…read that book okay? Okay.
CHICKEN FEET: A BOOK WITH DIVIDED OPINIONS
I’m going to have to agree with Calliope and say The Selection by Keira Cass. Some people love it, some people hate it. I loved The Selection, I was annoyed with The Elite, I have not read The One yet…even though I have had it on my shelf since it came out.
LOTUS-WRAPPED STICKY RICE: A BOOK YOU’VE RECEIVED/GIVEN THAT WAS NICELY PACKAGED
Harry Potter boxed set. The American edition hardcovers that come in that giant cardboard trunk. That is the one I have. My grandma gave it to me for christmas of second grade, so…back in 2007.
EGG CUSTARD TART: A BOOK THAT USES SIMPLE INGREDIENTS AND CLICHES BUT EXECUTES IT PERFECTLY
I’m going to go with Red Queen because its the first one that came to mind. It follows a lot of tropes and cliches for its genre (dystopian) but its such a good book it doesn’t feel that way, I guess? I don’t know, all I know is that I am DYING for Glass Sword.
MANGO PUDDING WITH EVAPORATED MILK: ANY BOOK RECOMMENDATION + BEVERAGE/SNACK THAT’S A WINNING COMBINATION
Well, I can tell you that this is the one food on this list/tag that I will never try because, well, I am allergic to mango. Not like, dying and can’t breathe allergic, more like, itchy and puffy and annoyed, but still, allergic.
That being said, the best combo is any book + coffee. I nearly always drink coffee while I read.
FRIED SESAME BALLS: A BOOK COVER WITH EMBOSSED TEXT/DESIGN YOU JUST LOVE TO RUN YOUR FINGERS OVER
I going to have to go with Carry On. Because, well, because yes.
DIM SUM STEAM CART: THE TYPE OF CARRYING BAG YOU USE TO BRING BOOKS AROUND
Usually just by bookbag for school or whatever bag I grab first if I’m going somewhere. Usually by black Publix branded drawstring bag.
And you if you’re interested! Consider yourself officially tagged. I would love to hear your answers.
