Ice Lolly | Book Tag

After a few heat waves in a row this summer, ice cream has become a regular item in our freezer. So I thought it’d be fitting to bring the ice cream to the blog with the Ice Lolly Book Tag.

Original tag by Amy @ Golden Books Girl, Charlotte @ Charlotte, Somewhere, and Louise @ Book Murmuration

Mini Milk: short and sweet

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. Probably the most wholesome book I’ve ever read

Magnum: best classic

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Cornetto: book with a surprise ending

Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb. The book is pretty slow paced, so I was surprised at all the excitement that was the ending

Rocket Ice Lolly: a book which looks more exciting from the outside

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

Ben and Jerry’s – most versatile author

T. Kingfisher writes adventure, romance, fairy tales, horror, and children’s books. And I’ve liked everything I’ve read from her so far

FAB – weak ending

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus. I was not crazy about the big reveal at the end of this one

Calippo – reader has to work to get the good stuff out

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour. A somber story about grief, this one’s a short, slow read

Rainbow Lollies – favorite lgbtqia+ fiction

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Probably not known for being lgbtqia+, but as someone who generally prefers stories that go lighter on the romance, I really liked the various relationships in this duology

Nobbly Bobbly – gritty subject, sweet message

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. The end of the world prevented through the power of friendship. Ok, not really, but a little bit

Boss Strawberry Double – book by an international author

The Library of the Dead by T.L. Huchu, a Zimbabwean author

Magnum Ice Cream Tubs – weird but good

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

Cruchie Blast – great spin-off/retelling

Romeo and/or Juliet by Ryan North. A classic re-done as a silly choose-your-own-adventure style story

Solero – light and fluffy

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Choc-ice – book you don’t want to admit you love

The Hunger Games by Suzanna Collins. I read this long after the YA dystopian craze had died down and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it

Fruit Lolly – left on the shelf

Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski. I’ve tried reading this multiple times and I finally put it down for good this year

Mint Choc Chip – love it or hate it

Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey. So many people with similar reading taste love this entire series, but I am not one of those people. I gave it a good try, but I DNFed the first book. I was glad to learn I was not alone in feeling the way I did about the writing

I hope you’re staying cool if it’s summer where you are too.
