The Book Cake Tag!

I was tagged by Jess (thanks!) to do the Book Cake Tag! I love cake (and all other dessert) and I love books, so naturally I'm all about smooshing them together.

Flour: A book with a slow start that really picked up
The beginning on this book was a little slow, but I didn't mind it, but it really picks up in the middle of the novel when Jane comes into her own.  
Butter: A book with a rich plot
This plot is very political and rich, and I can't wait to see how it evolves in the second book, but first I want to reread this one. 
Eggs: A book you thought would be bad but ended up being enjoyable
I was a little leary to pick this one up just because it didn't sound like it was going to be my thing, but I was very pleasantly surprised by it! It wasn't as romance driven as I thought it would be, and I ended up liking the romance elements to the story as well. I still need to pick up the companion novel! 
Sugar: A sweet book
This book is very sweet, but look at that cover- would you expect anything else? 
Icing: A book with all of the elements you love
This historical fiction novel has it all: feminists, suffragettes, scary fathers, handsome hypnotists, adventure, and girl power.   
Sprinkles: A book series you turn to when you're feeling down
So, this isn't a book series per-say, but I love to turn to a Holmes story when I'm feeling off or in a reading slump.  

Cherry on Top: You're favorite book of the year so far
Oh man, I loved this book! It will definitely make my top ten list for the year, if not get the number one spot. This book is beautifully written- some of the most beautiful writing I have ever read. Read it!  


  1. A Little Something Different IS such a sweet cover! Good to know it lives up to the design :) And ah, Jane Eyre. I found an appreciation and love for classics because of that novel. Don't you feel like you want to be in an English country side while reading it?

    1. Yes, I would love to visit the Moors and read the Bronte sister's works! Life Dream!
      Thanks for stopping by Jillian!

  2. Great list, Mallory! I still need to read These Broken Stars and The Cure for Dreaming sounds great. If you're in the mood for more suffragettes you should check out Lucy Ribchester's debut, The Hourglass Factory. :)

    Sherlock Holmes is a great choice! Those stories are so much fun to read.

    1. The Cure For Dreaming was really enjoyable, I think you would really enjoy it. Thanks for the recommendation! I'll check that one out!
      Thanks for stopping by Jess!

  3. Great tag! I loved I'll Give You The Sun!! I read it earlier this year. Not sure if it is m #1 on my favorites of the year list, but it is in the top ten for sure. :)

    1. It will be in my top ten of the entire year for sure too! Loved the writing and Noah.
      Thanks for stopping by Cynthia!
