Candy Corn-A Book You Only Read Seasonally:
One of my bookish goals is to collect as many cool editions of Peter Pan as I can, and reread one at least least once a year during January, my birthday month. It was my favorite book when I was little, and I thought it’d be a nice little tradition to have for myself to remind myself of the good things from my childhood every year I get older.
Tootsie Pop-A Book You Enjoyed Reading Slowly:
Well I usually read pretty much every book pretty slowly, (at least compared to other people I guess, 😛 ) but I’ll go with this one. I almost listened to the audiobook along with it to get through it faster, but I decided I didn’t like the narrator and I wanted to take some notes on it cuz some things were inspiring me for my own writing, so I decided to just take my time with it. True, I happened to get in a slump and it took me literally all summer to finish it, but I still enjoyed it for the most part.
Creepy Gummy-Creepiest Book You’ve Read:
I read this a couple of years ago and I only got a little bit under halfway through when I decided to DNF it. It was just too dark and depressing and creepy for me.
Hard Candy-A Book That Was Hard to Get Through:
SIGH. I read this last year and I really tried to like it. I really did. There were cute things like the baking and the sisterhood, but it wasn’t in there as much as I was led to believe it was. I didn’t like the romance at all, and I was so sick of everybody basically telling Lara Jean that there was something wrong with her if she wanted to stay home and bake instead of going to a party. Like, are you serious? I felt like the book was basically shaming introverts and everyone was trying to change her cuz she wasn’t a “normal teenager.” 😡
I read it all the way through and gave it 3 stars, but now I think maybe I was being a little too nice? This book really bothered me, and I kept it for a while because I liked the cute cover, but I realized that was a stupid reason if every time I thought about it it made my blood boil, so earlier this year I finally unhauled it.
Jelly Beans-A Book That Was Unexpected:
This was the first audiobook I listened to this year way back in January. It had been on my radar for a while but I wasn’t sure what I’d think of it, and I was surprised at how much I like it! I loved the narrator and her southern accent she used and the cute and quirky main character and her friends. XD Also the blurb mentions a murder, but I didn’t expect it to actually be as much a part of the plot as it actually was, and I loved the action and suspense it added! It was so fun to listen to this audiobook and I really want to read the rest of the series! 😀
