The Cake Book Tag

Emma, the wonderful blogger and librarian behind Miss Print tagged me to do the Cake Book Tag, and I'm pretty excited because it's been a while since I've been tagged in a book tag that I haven't already posted before. You can see Emma's post on her blog.


A book that was a little slow to start but really picked up as it moved along


I felt like there was just a lot of filler material in the first half of the book. I'm really hoping the third book is a lot better.


A book that had a rich, great plot


It's a Little Mermaid retelling but the plot is still so original and separate from what its based on.


A book you thought was going to be bad but turned out to be enjoyable


I'm not usually one for thrillers, but this one was just so freaking good and addictive.


A sugary sweet book


This book is just all sorts of adorable and it's full of fabulously sweet goodies.


A book that covered every single element that you enjoy in a book


The plot, characters, setting, and pacing are just superb in this stunning book.


A book series that you can turn to for a little pick-me-up when you're feeling down 

How can you go wrong with a little romance in some great cities?

Alright... now I get to tag some people, right? Here it goes:
  1. Angie @ The Paperback Reader
  2. Amber @ YA Indulgences
  3. Tessa @ Crazy for YA
  4. Blessie @ Mischievous Reads
  5. Tika @ Fangirl Confessions 
I apologize if you ladies have already been tagged. If you have, link me to your posts so I can look at them! I seem to miss out on all the fun these days.


  1. This is an unusual tag. I think you came up with some really good answers for it.

  2. This is a great tag post, I enjoyed reading it!

  3. I totally agree on so many of your choices, Erin! (Bittersweet, Anna and the French Kiss, etc.) And I've been meaning to read Sarah Ockler's newest release, The Summer of Chasing Mermaids. I'm glad to hear it has a good, buttery plot. Thanks for the post!

    I like this tag!! Very cute - Great answers too!

  5. It is! I've been waiting and waiting for someone to tag me because it looked like so much fun. :)

  6. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids is excellent. I hope you enjoy it. :)

  7. Great choices! Several of these are on my to read list!

  8. I totally had the same answer for "eggs"! I think! I'm glad you liked The Last Good Day of the Year as well :)

  9. Thanks, Emma! :)

    What ones are on your TBR?

  10. That's so funny!

    It was a really good book. It's one that I wouldn't have picked up on my own.

  11. The Infinite Sea, Summer of Chasing Mermaids and Emmy & Oliver!

  12. I loved The Summer of Chasing Mermaids and Emmy & Oliver. The Infinite Sea was more of a "meh" book for me, but it was still alright.

    Oh yes definitely agree about The Infinite Sea. I’m reading book three based solely on the last half of that book! If it hadn’t picked up, I’d probably have skipped out on book three this Fall. But now I’m kind of stuck and if I’ve gone this far, might as well finish it, right??

    *hugs Summer of Chasing Mermaids*

    YES to Emmy & Oliver! It was the heaviest fluffy book I’ve ever read, but it was so magical because the characters were just PERFECT.

  14. This tag is awesome! I love cake:)
    I am really looking forward to read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids. It sounds beautiful.
    And Lola! I love that book, especially Cricket *swoons*

  15. Is it weird that I got increasingly hungry as I read this post? I hope not.

    I really love your choices. Anna and the French Kiss is the PERFECT series to pick me out of a bad mood. I am really looking forward to reading Emmy and Oliver too. I have seen so many great reviews about it already!

    Thanks so much for tagging me! I was finally able to finish it, in case you want to see my answers!

  16. That's how I feel about the whole Fifth Wave trilogy. If I hadn't read this one, I really wouldn't be inclined to finish it come this fall, but oh well. At least the first book was really, really good.

    Wasn't it? OMG. I just love Emmy & Oliver, and I want to give Robin the biggest hug ever for writing it because it was so cute.

  17. I love cake, too, Mishma. But probably a bit too much.

    The Summer of Chasing Mermaids is just so beautiful. I really hope you enjoy it. :)

  18. It's so good! Aren't fairytale retellings the best? I need more of them in my life.

  19. Not weird at all. I've been craving cake since I was tagged by Emma!

    Emmy & Oliver is just perfect! I hope you enjoy it, Tessa! You'll have to drop by again to let me know what you thought of it. :)

  20. Hmmmm. I have been dragging my feet really hard on that one. Maybe it's time to admit I'll never get to it D:

  21. I hate when that happens, but I feel like I might have to admit that about the Pretty Little Liars books. I've only read the first, and just looking at the next fifteen is daunting.
