Tag Thursday - Book Cake Tag

Hello everyone!

I am back again with another Tag Thursday! This week, I am doing the Book Cake Tag created by suddenlylorna over on YouTube. Go check out her original video here!

Okay, so onto the tag! Basically, you have a list of ingredients and you match a book to each ingredient to make your cake.

Flour

Alright so the first ingredient is self flour rising. This represents a book that started slow but got better  in the end. For me, I would say that the best book for this was Looking for Alaska by John Green. I thought that the "before" sections of this book were a little slow, but as you get closer to the "after" sections, it picks up and gets a lot better.

Butter

The next ingredient is butter. The book that represents butter is a book filled with richness, whether that be in the plot, characters, themes, etc. I think that this book would have to be Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. This book was just so well laid out and really well written. Rowell made the characters real and raw. It's just an overall well done book.

Eggs

Next up is the eggs. This is a book that you thought was going to be bad but turned out to be good. I think that this book would be We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I went into this book with a lot of hype, not expecting it to at all live up to the buzz but it was A.MAZ.ING! I didn't think this book was going to be terrible, but I just didn't think it would live up to the hype surrounding it.

Sugar

After the eggs, the next ingredient is sugar. This represents a book that was just sweet, and cute and adorable. I think that Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler best represents this book. Even though there are some really serious issues dealt with in this book, it has a really cute romance and I loved every minute of it.

Icing

What is a cake without icing? Because the icing covers the cake, this represents a book that covers a lot of elements you look for in a good book. I think that this book would have to be Divergent by Veronica Roth. I love a good dystopian, a love story, a bit of action and definitely some laughs.

Sprinkles

Once the cake is iced, it needs some sprinkles! The sprinkles represent a series that you can turn to to cheer you up. This was a little bit tricky for me, most, if not all of the series that I have are dystopians, and not a cheery contemporary. I think though that the Under the Never Sky Trilogy by Veronica Rossi is a really great dystopian trilogy that has plenty of great romances and swoon worthy lines.

Cherry

Finally, the cherry on top of the cake. This represents your favourite book you read so far in 2014. I think that this one is going to have to be Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Yes, I can totally use the same book for the butter and the cherry! Maybe my cake just has a stick of butter on top instead of a cherry! ;)

Ta-da! There is my book cake! I hope you enjoyed this post and I'll see you next week for another Tag Thursday!
