Chocolate! (A Book Tag)


I have... five posts in my blog drafts folder waiting to be completed. They're all about 1/4 of the way finished, and I have to take pictures to finish all of them. Which is just not happening.

Sooooo instead, I'm doing a blog tag, which I was nominated for by Aspen over at Texas Rebel Girl, and Sarah from Sarah'Sword! Thanks, girls, for the nominations! Because I really did not feel like finishing those other posts right now... though I do need to... eventually. ;)

Well, shall we get started then? *smile*

Dark Chocolate (a book that covers a dark topic):

Uhh... I really don't read many of that sort of thing... but I'll go with... oh! I know. The Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. It's all about the end times, as described in the book of Revelation. Very intense, and tough subject, but really great. I'm only just finishing up the 2nd book, but I'm really excited to read the rest.

White Chocolate (a light and humorous read)

This one is definitely The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien (duh). Yes, yes, it does get sad nearing the end, but it's such a fun, super easy, and definitely humorous read. ;)

Milk Chocolate (a book with a lot of hype that you're dying to read)

Ooh oh oh! The Giver by Lois Lowry. I've heard some great things about the movie based on it that just released, so I want to read the book first so I can see le movie. ;)

Caramel-filled Chocolate (a book that makes you feel all gooey inside)

Ehehe. There are many many many... ;D First that comes to mind would be The Merchant's Daughter by Melanie Dickerson. Lotsa lovely goo-ey-ness. ;)

Wafer-less Kit-Kat (a book that surprised you):

First of all, I've never heard of a wafer-less Kit-Kat, so..? Or maybe that's because it would be surprising to eat a Kit-Kat only to find out it doesn't have wafers? Idk. Anyway... xD 

One that surprised me was DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul. From the cover and first few chapters, I was totally not expecting the awesome book it turned out to be -- seriously, one of the best I've read in a while. Really fun fantasy story, and very Tolkien-esque. ;)

Snickers (a book you're going nuts about)

Anomaly by Krista McGee!! Set in a dystopian world with genetically modified humans who don't have emotions, this book was incredible. It sounds cliche, but it totally isn't. I'm dying to read the next two books in the trilogy.

Hot Chocolate with Mini Marshmallows (a book you turn to for comfort)

The Bible!!! No, I'm serious, man. There is no other book in the world that can give such complete peace as God's Word. ^_^

A Box of Chocolates (a series you feel has something for everyone)

This is super easy -- The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien (including it's prequel, The Hobbit). I've heard sooo many people say how they read at least The Hobbit in school, and it was their absolute favorite book ever -- then they got older and decided to read LOTR, only to love that even more. 

Honestly, you can't get much better than Middle-earth. ;) 

That was so much fun -- thanks again for the nominations, girls!! :) 

And here are my nominees!

And, of course, any one else who would like to do the tag! Even if you want to do it in the comment section here, go for it! Because I literally hate to leave people out... it makes me sad. ;) 

Welp, hope you enjoyed this fun little post, and hopefully I'll get those 5 drafts finished sometime soon... ;) 



  1. oooh as I was reading this I was thinking... "I'm gonna steal this idea from her. I love this tag." And then you tagged me. Day. Made. :D Looking forward to doing this post!

  2. Loved reading about your current faves in the literary world! I recently read The Giver, and it was... very different, unique, and interesting, and overall I liked it! It truly is unlike any book I ever read. I want to see the movie now too! And I've been wanting to try DragonSpell. Maybe over Christmas or summer break...

  3. Thanks Beth! You're the sweetest! Hopefully I can get mine done sometime soon- but anything bookish= awesome!!!
    Thanks again!
    ❤️ Madi

  4. I would not have thought to categorize books in terms of chocolate... quite an interesting idea here!
    Thank you kindly for nominating me for the tag. I've finally completed the post, and (assuming we're not playing with "no fair tag-backs"?) have sent the tag directly back to you. There are three variations available if you're interested in doing any of them. :)

  5. Ahem…I might "borrow" this tag…without permission…'cause it's awesome…*coughcough* =D
