If you don’t already know, I have discussions posted on my blog twice a month that I like to call That’s What I’ll Write Thursdays. Since I only do them every other week, I figured I’d also do a tag to fill in another week. I took this tag from Ally @ Ally Writes Things, and if you click on that link, it’ll take you right to her own tag!
I decided to do this one, too, because I really like ice cream, and Ben & Jerry’s are the kings of my heart.
Vanilla Caramel Fudge | Pick a light, fluffy contemporary
Changes in Latitude by Jen Malone! Although this story handled divorce, the relationship between Cassie and Jonah was really sweet, cute, and really fun when they had scenes together. If this were to turn into a movie, it would for sure be a summer hit with the teens.
Mint Chocolate Cookie | A new release you think everyone should read
Oh, jeez. I’m not normally very updated when it comes to new releases and such, but luckily I just finished Turtles All the Way Down by John Green! It was very informative to read what a person who is diagnosed with those illnesses goes through. This book features way more than just mental illness and #ownvoices representation and I think that’s why everyone should get into it!
Cherry Garcia | An ending that was bittersweet
It would have to be Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson! I absolutely loved that Taylor, Henry, and Lucy managed to be okay in the end, but was very saddened by Taylor’s father.
Strawberry Shortcake | A book containing your OTP of OTP’s
I’ve never been so stressed out about a tag question before, but if I had to pick, it would probably be Simon and Bram/Blue’s relationship in Simon vs The Homosapien’s Agenda by Becky Albertalli. They were really, really cute when I was imagining them and I feel like if they don’t end up together forever, they were good for each other as, like, first “loves”.
Milk and Cookies | Two authors who, if they collaborated, would go perfectly together
Ooh, that’s another good question. I feel like I should have a good answer for this one at the ready, but I do have to think about it. I know for sure I would read a collab by Emma Mills and Jenn Bennett. They both write really dreamy male counterparts while also writing kick-ass female leads. #alwayscontemporary
Boston Cream Pie | A book that had you turning the pages late into the night
Loner by Teddy Wayne! This book was one of my very first steps into reading new adult, and I don’t regret reading this book at all. It was a little on the condescending side, but it had a decent enough plot to keep me reading.
Chocolate Therapy | A book that makes you feel better after a long day of life
That’s a very specific time period, yes. But I can hands down say Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell! This is my absolute favorite story to re-read when I’m not feeling so great; any page I turn to ends up being a good part of the book! In true Ericka fashion, however, I usually only skip to parts where Levi are.
Coffee, Coffee, BUZZBUZZBUZZ | A book not yet released that you can’t wait to get your hands on
It for sure has to be Love and Other Carnivorous Plants by Florence Gonsalvez, releasing May 15th, 2018! There have been a few anticipated 2018 releases that came out and haven’t been as great as some people thought they’d be, but this book has a 4.45-star rating on Goodreads so far and there’s no way I think it’s going to lower to less than 4.0. Or at least, I’m hoping it won’t.
That’s it for this tag! Just like Ally, I tag anyone who enjoys ice cream just as much! I must warn you, I had my partner fetch me some ice cream while I was doing this tag, and you just might want some, too!
