In Which I Create The Pastry Book Tag

PastryBookTagSo, remember how I kidnapped The Coffee Book Tag and stole the Bookshelf Tag? (I was actually tagged for the Unpopular Opinions tag). Well, I mentioned that instead of going to blogs and snatching the tags from them, I should create my own. Y’know, to make up for it.

There are no special rules (mostly because I’m too lazy to make them up). Just give me credit for it, I guess.

If this tag stinks, feel free to tell me.

Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.

*sings* Harry Potter. If you don’t love Harry Potter, we need to have a talk about your life choices. Because seriously, how can you not like Harry Potter? J. K. Rowling is the queen.

Macaron: Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it at the end.

I struggled through the first third or so of Welcome to the Dark House, but I’m glad I kept going because the ending was worth the initial struggle. (Plus, I’m dying to know: how many people have attempted to make macarons only to have them turn out hollow or crunchy or not have those little feet. Because I have. Many times)

Vol-au-vent: Name a book that you thought would be amazing but fell flat.

(For those wondering, a Vol-au-vent is a flaky pastry that’s hollow inside. And also is delicious). Judging by what I had heard about it, I would say Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi. Everyone told me it was amazing, and I was expecting a harsh dystopian, but what I got was a romantic X-Men rip off.

Pain au chocolat: Name a book that you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else.

I was fully expecting The 100 to be sci-fi post-apocalyptic, but instead it was bad romance.

Profiterole: Name a book or series that doesn’t get enough attention.

Either the Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, Half Bad by Sally Green, or the Dorothy Must Die series by Danielle Paige.

Croquembouche: Name a book or series that’s extremely complex.

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. She foreshadows three books in advance, each book has the main plot plus each of the characters have their own little subplots and sometimes those subplots have a subplot plus there’s the plot that encompasses the whole series and at times I felt like my brain was going to explode.

Napoleon: Name a movie or TV show based off a book that you liked better than the book itself.

I liked The Maze Runner movie better than I liked the book, and The 100 TV show it ten times better than the series. Way more violent, too. I spent like the entire first season cringing.

Empanada: Name a book that was bittersweet.

Really, empanadas are savory-sweet, but that doesn’t sound as good. As for bittersweet, I’d say Eleanor & Park. I have this wish that sometime in the future Eleanor and Park get together again and get married. Seriously, I love them.

Kolompeh: Name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your home country:

The Daughter of Smoke and Bone series takes place in Prague, which sounds beautiful and they also have amazing pastries. I think it would be a little bit of a struggle to visit because I don’t know one word of Czech.

Pate a Choux: Name one food from a book or series that you would like to try.

Ambrosia from the Percy Jackson series, mostly because I have no idea what my favorite comfort food is. But if I burst into flames after trying it, I’d say the Fizzy Lifting Drink from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Provided I can get down again.


Cait @ Paper Fury | Tina @ Read the Bloody Book | Aentee @ Read at Midnight | Erika @ Erika in Bookventureland | Cat @ Thoughts from a Geek Girl | Lizzy @ My Little Book Blog | Koral @ The Time Traveling Writer’s Blog | and anyone else who wants to do it! Give me a link and I’ll come check it out.

So, how’d I do? Is my book tag decent? And, most importantly, did it make you crave pastries? I want a profitarole now. Also, in a show of hands, who else thought that a pain au chocolat was only just a chocolate-filled croissant and not something completely different? I did for the longest time, and it’s a bit embarrassing.

Happy Monday,

  1. THIS TAG SPEAKS TO ME ON A SPIRITUAL LEVEL. Except for the part where I am an uneducated piece of pie and don’t even know what half of these are. Except Profiterole and croissants. OMG I LOVE THOSE. So yes this is totally going onto my to-blog list. xD
    I looove how complex and foreshadowed Cassandra Clare’s books are. :’) AND I S O WANT TO VISIT PRAGUE. Or anywhere in Europe basically. Because Europe.


  2. This tag is perfect, just like I thought it would be. I can absolutely not wait to do this tag (please don’t ever stop tagging, I would literally die and OMG thank you for somehow finding my name through one of my old posts. It porbably wasn’t that old, but whatever. I feel so special now finally someone has found and used my actual name when tagging me. I feel way overly excited. (@_@)). And I absolutely adore croissants; whenever my mum buys them from the store, I devour them. My favorite thing to do is eat them with coffee (preferably from Starbucks, but a homemade Keurig brew is fine too) or green tea while smothering them (the croissant) wuith Nutella, the best thing since books. Or coffee. One of the two. *(^o^)*


    1. I found your name on your Goodreads account. When I sent you a friend request, it said “Koral has accepted the request” or something along those lines. And croissants dipped in hot chocolate-real hot chocolate, the stuff made from chocolate are amazing
