Thank you so much, Heather, @ Nightly Reading for tagging me! I saw your answers and the questions and just had to do this. Definitely head over to their blog as well, they have some amazing content.
Even though I am a little late. This is another tag where I am a little lazy to put in the book covers – I’m sorry. I’ve spent my day trying to schedule blog posts for after I finish University (which is in October) and buying clothes for my work experience/internship I am doing. I’m sorry if you guy’s don’t like that but that is unfortunately how it is.

Chocolate Chip: A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed (interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago)
I like the fact that this is interpreted how you want because ya girl has never read a classic. If I’m going 20 years ago it has to be Harry Potter by JK Rowling. The book actually came out the year I was born (1997) – I didn’t read them until I was 18 but still counts. Basically, I loved Harry Potter. I hate JK Rowling, but the books have a special place in my heart.
Thin Mints: A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read (your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere)
I’m pretty good at reading hyped up books as they come out. Being a fast reader I am typically right there on the hype train so I genuinely can’t think of one! I have really read basically every book I have wanted to, and joined their fandoms.
Also, mint is gross and Australia doesn’t have thin mints so maybe I should have interpreted this question as a fandom I want to avoid.
Shortbread: An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of
I read Mirage by Somaiya Daud and I just need more of her writing. The world and character building is absolutely spectacular and the world needs to pick it up. I am writing this post in August though and having it published in October so maybe the world has picked it up.
Samoas/ Caramel DeLites: An Emotional Rollercoaster (this cookie was hard … so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you)
I was going to pick a book that I absolutely despised and wanted to rant about, but I figure I should try and keep this positive. I will have to pick Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills (review here). This book broke my heart and stitched it back together. I truly squealed and cried and just absolutely loved it. It is definitely a book that deserves more attention.
Oreos: A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover
The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson had an absolutely beautiful cover. With the shiny gold and just all around beautiful branding I was expecting an amazing story. That is not what I got. You can read more about what I thought here.
Tagalongs/ Peanut Butter Patties: A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)
I have no idea what this cookie is honestly. Someone from America educates me on cookies. Also, send me cookies, I love cookies.
How To Make A Wish by Ashley Herring Blake was not what I expected. I was trying to read more f/f romances and didn’t expect to be blown away by how much I related to the story. The connection I had with the main character was something that shocked me and definitely not what I was expecting. I never actually wrote a review on this book, maybe it’s time for a re-read so I can review it.
Snickerdoodles: A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving
I was watching The Goldbergs the other day and the mum on the show made snickerdoodles. This is another recipe that no Australian makes so I took to cookie and made my own. A very interesting cookie.
I have to pick my most known series for this one: The Shadowhunters Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. I am 21 this year (yikes in two months when this post goes live) and I will be reading these books until I die. I basically do a full re-read every two years and I just love to see how Cassandra Clare has developed overall as an author.
