Amy’s Tea Book Tag

(Originally created by Amy from TheDustyBookShelf )

I found this Tag on Eunice’s blog NerdyTalksBookBlog and decided that, since it had been a while since the last time I did a BookTag, I should answer the questions myself.

I do like a good cup of tea, so why not 🙂

1. Double Bergamot Earl Grey – A robust, deep, intellectual and flavourful book

HHhH by Laurent Binet. This is an intellectual book. There is no way he could have delved deeper into the subject of Heydrich’s assassination than he did in this book. You get tons and tons of information and so many details that you can imagine yourself there, walking the streets, sensing the people’s fear. I thought this book was remarkable. It constantly crosses the line of fiction and non-fiction.

2. Tim Horton’s Steeped- A book you read on the go, that you come back to again and again

Harry Potter. The only books I have reread multiple times. I love them so much and I keep discovering new little details.

3. Meyer Lemon- A tangy, fast-paced read. Gone before you’ve fully savoured the flavour.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne. I read this book in one go while I was travelling back home from London. I finished it just as we were pulling up at my mother’s house. I sometimes think I read it too fast but then again, that’s just the way it flowed.

4. Chamomile Lavender- a relaxing, calming late night read

Uprooted by Naomi Novik or the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. They make me feel the same way. Great books with fantastical elements and fun-to-read characters. Time goes by so fast that suddenly you realize you should have gone to bed an hour ago.

5. Lady Grey- A smooth, subtle, classic book, perfect for a serene winter morning

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I’m actually thinking about rereading this. But then again, I always say that about the books I like and never end up doing it…

6. Orange Pekoe- A popular novel that everyone’s read

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. This was such a hyped book and honestly.. I loved it. It was so cuuuuuuuuute!! 🙂

8. Canadian Breakfast- a title that tastes a little like English Breakfast, but read’s like the New World (an early Canadian-or American-work)

Woops, I have read nothing that would qualify for this question..

9. Green- A healthy book that feeds your mind.

The Secret Life of Bees – Sue Monk Kidd. I feel like this book gave me so much. It made me happy, it made me sad and it gave me a sort of energy, to live my life to the fullest.

10. Iced- a sweet summer treat, brewed for the lazy brief days of summer.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. I don’t talk about this book enough. It’s always the dramatic, classic books that blow me away but this book was so beautifully constructed that it stayed with me for a long time after I finished it.


I tag everyone! If you do the tag, please let me know in the comment section. I’d like to see your answers.
