The Candy Book Tag is a new book blog tag started by Samantha @ Bookish Serendipity. Basically, this is a list of types of candy . . . and we have to match them with books. Awesome.
EVERYONE LIKES CANDY, RIGHT? And if this isn’t the best gif you’ve ever seen then I don’t know what is.
Thanks to Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination for tagging me!

Apples: Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing. For me, this book had to be The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon. This book just was not for me. The writing style, storyline… I know lots of people enjoyed it. But I didn’t.
Milk Chocolate: This is the book that you’d recommend to absolutely EVERYONE. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. Ahhhhh, I cannot recommend this book enough! I read it a few months ago and I still think about it.
Black Jellybeans: WHY DO THESE EXIST? House of Night series by P.C Cast & Kristin Cast. I can’t even with this series. I just can’t.
Chocolate Kisses: Aww…this novel had the best romance. The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. Sam and Celaena. Oh my gosh I loved that relationship so, so much. If you’ve read this series, then you know what ends up happening… *sobs*
Gummy Spiders: Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one. Honestly, I don’t read much horror — but this is something I definitely want to change soon! I would have said Dangerous Girls, because man, that’s one scary book when you consider what humans (and teenagers, gosh) are capable of, but as I’ve already used that for one… Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I didn’t find this scary, exactly — but man, it definitely was creepy.
Jumbo Lollipop: This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it! The A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin. These books did take me quite some time to get through — but damn, it was worth it! (Especially A Clash of Kings; I think it was the longest novel of the series, bearing in mind that my copies of A Storm of Swords and A Dance With Dragons were split into two volumes.)
Cotton Candy: Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think: children’s or MG fiction. This was a hard one! Mainly because there were so many books I could have chosen for this. However, my final decision rests with The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. This novel, I loved so, so much as a child. And I would really love to reread it one day.
Well. That was fun. Here are the people I’m tagging. I haven’t checked to see whether you’ve done it yet, but feel free to do it if you haven’t!
And anyone else who wants to do it! :)
