The Pancake Book Tag

If I had to name a few of my favorite foods, pancakes would definitely be on the list. They’re just so soft and fluffy and ~delicious~. πŸ₯ž It’s one of my favorite brunch items along with eggs benedict. Today, I’m combining my two loves of pancakes and books (of course) together by bringing you The Pancake Book Tag! Thank you so much to Marie from Drizzle and Hurricane Books for tagging me. πŸ’• I was so happy yet hungry reading her post so definitely check out her answers as well!

I definitely have to agree with Marie’s answer because The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan has some of the most beautiful prose I’ve ever read. The colorful descriptions make me feel like I’ve been transported to Taiwan, and every emotional moment is illustrated so intensely that it perfectly tugs at my heart. πŸ’˜ It does a fantastic job addressing important topics of grief and depression, especially within the Asian American community, and I know this is a book I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.

I would have to probably choose Reyna from the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. She’s definitely a character that I looked up to a lot when I was younger because of her ability to lead the entire Roman legion at Camp Jupiter. πŸ—‘ She wasn’t exactly hot-tempered, but she had the fiery warrior spirit of a Roman. I would definitely argue that she’s one of the sharpest battle masterminds in the series as well.

I’d probably have to pick To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. I really loved the movie and the trilogy because it was so aesthetic and cute but also made me feel so represented as an Asian American. πŸ’Œ I would argue that P.S. I Still Love You is better than the first book, but this one was also the one that started it all. John Ambrose is one of my love interests too because he was so!! freaking!! precious!!

This answer is easily Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare from the Infernal Devices Trilogy. That epilogue is one of the most heart-wrenching things I’ve ever read in my life. 😭 It was the absolute perfect way to end the entire Shadowhunter prequel trilogy. Plus, Will Herondale is definitely one of my favorite characters, and reading about his love triangle with Tessa and Jem made my heart burn so much. Every time I reread this book I want to ~roll up into a blanket burrito~ and just contemplate life and love.

When I read Small Town Hearts by Lillie Vale earlier this year, I absolutely fell in love with the story, the small town, and the characters. It left me with such warm and fuzzy feels because it strikes the perfect balance of friendship, family, and romance. It’s indulgent in all the right ways because you feel so sentimental reading this book because it discusses the main character’s transition post high school graduation. AND it has the best food descriptions e v e r. You can basically smell the clam chowder and fresh seafood while reading!!

I’d definitely have to choose Cameron Bright from If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka. I’ve been talking about this book nonstop, but it’s honestly just because I love it THAT MUCH. Cameron Bright is definitely someone who can be seen as witty and sharp with her words. β˜€πŸŒ΄ After all, she is notoriously known at her school as a bitch. However, as we learn throughout the book, she’s so much more multi-dimensional which is why I loved rooting for her as a main character.

This answer is easily Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I’ve been wanting to reread Six of Crows lately to prepare for the Netflix series, but overall, Six of Crows is one of the best books I’ve read which has consistently kept me on my toes. πŸ–€ Kaz Brekker is one of my favorite literary masterminds, and his gang of misfits are all so wonderfully lovable. Even though this book was a little slow to get into at first, I ended up being on the edge of my seat the entire time!

When I first started reading Once and For All by Sarah Dessen, I didn’t think that I would like the two main characters as a couple simply because they were so different. πŸ•Š But hey! opposites attract, and over the course of the story, Louna and Ambrose really showed that their differing personalities were able to compliment each other well. They managed to strike a balance between calm and quiet and upbeat and happy.

Now, I actually really like peanut butter, but a character that leaves me with iffy feelings is definitely Hideo Tanaka from Warcross by Marie Lu. ✨ Even though I really enjoyed the story itself and loved Emika Chen as a main character, I just couldn’t seem to fall in love with the romance. I just felt like he was a suspicious character that I couldn’t 100% trust. In fact, I thought the plot itself would have been more interesting without the romance in it.

One of my favorite diverse reads this year was You Asked For Perfect by Laura Silverman because this book was too relatable for words. Even now as I’m going through final exams in college, I still think back to this book for its great representation of academic anxiety. It also stars a gay Jewish main character with a Arab and Muslim love interest.

    1. Thank you so much for tagging me, Marie!! I loved your answers so much for them that I knew that there would definitely be overlap when I did the tag πŸ˜‚ I definitely understand what you mean though!! Cameron and Megan are seemingly unlikable at first glance, but I really love how complex they are as characters which made it so so easy to love them. YEEE I can’t wait for us to fangirl about their next book together!!

    1. Thank you, Chana!! I was actually thinking a lot about Annabeth because she is definitely super wise and smart, but I think the sharp wit part can really be used to describe Reyna. I love her a lot, and I hope she gets just as much recognition too!!

      I really hope you choose to do this tag!! I had a lot of fun answering the questions, and I would love to see your answers πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. I loved reading through all of your answers, and I may or may not have gotten unreasonably excited about your mention of Six of Crows.

    I’m so excited to add some of these books to my TBR, especially You Asked for Perfect – I actually haven’t heard of that book before, but it sounds so good!

    Great post! ❀️

  4. I love you. And pancakes. And this post. SO MUCH! ❀ You've made me so hungry from reading this, Tiffany. Kaz will always be my favorite literary mastermind, and I agree that something about Hideo didn't make him quite trustworthy. (If I was Emika, I would've skirted away, but then I guess there wouldn't have been a purpose for a sequel, huh? Lol!)

    Great post, sweets!

  6. Ahh, thank you so much for doing my tag! πŸ˜€ I loved reading all your different picks! I’ve yet to read Six of Crows but I really need to get to it because I’ve heard only positive things! All the hype and the news about a TV show finally convinced me to pick up The Grisha series, which I did enjoy, but I’ve heard Six of Crows is so much better?!

    1. I loved this tag so so much Becky!! I really loved the graphics you made for it too πŸ™‚ I’ve only read the first book in the Grisha trilogy, but I’d definitely agree that Six of Crows is SO MUCH BETTER ❀ I really hope you read it sometime!!
