Hello! I love doing tag posts, and on my quest to find some new and fun ones to do I came across The Cheesy Goodness Book Tag. As a lover of a good cheese board and books, this tag stood out and was one I definitely wanted to have a go at! This tag was originally created by Fire and Rain Books, although I did discover it through YA Books Daily as part of their Book Tag Sunday series – definitely go and check out their posts!
1. Cheddar, The Classic Cheese: Pick Your Favorite Classic Novel
I’d have to say that my favourite classic novel is definitely The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I’m not a massive fan of classics; I just have never really enjoyed them or got into them. However, I couldn’t put this one down and I love that it’s not too daunting!
2. Swiss, The Hole-y Cheese: Pick an Emotional Rollercoaster
3. Blue Cheese, The Controversial Cheese: Name an Unpopular Opinion
I have absolutely no intention of reading The Hate You Give. It doesn’t sound like a book that’ll interest me in the slightest and I feel like it’s been a bit of a “let’s all jump on the bandwagon” kind of book. I do get that it’s an important topic though!
4. Brie, The Favorite Cheese: Name an Author You Always Want More From
5. Gouda, The Dutch Cheese: A Book That Makes You Want to Travel
Hmm…so there are two ways that I’ve thought about this. The first is books that feature travel and so make me want to travel, and the book that springs to mind is The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie (amazing bookish roadtrip!). Then, on the other hand, are books that make me want to travel because they remind me of being on holiday, and the one for this is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I read this whilst on a cruise ship sailing around the Mediterranean so of course it brings back good memories!
6. American, The Fake Cheese: Your Least Favourite Book
I’m between books for this. One title that immediately came to mind is Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield. Years after reading it I’m still yet to find a book that left me feeling so uncomfortable throughout reading it and wasn’t enjoyable in the slightest. Its one redeeming factor is that the writing itself was brilliant. Another book in the running is Nothing Tastes As Good by Claire Hennessy. I recently DNFd this one on account of the writing being awful and highly triggering.
7. Colby Jack, The Mixed Cheese: Pick Your Favourite Ship
8. Mozzarella Cheese, The Simple Cheese: An Old Favourite You’ll Never Stop Loving
I have so many of these; I love to hoard and reread my favourite books! I think for this one I’m going to go for the Malory Towers series by Enid Blyton as she’s the main reason that I adore reading so much!
9. Pepper Jack, The Spicy Cheese: A Book You Can’t Judge by the Cover
I’m going to go for a cover change; The Diamond of Drury Lane was rereleased with HORRIBLE new covers which totally don’t do the book justice! I love this series so much and I’ve seen so many people turn up their nose at the newer covers. Luckily, they have released a new edition of the first book which is much prettier!
10. Muenster Cheese, The Monster Cheese: A Villain that Should Never Have the Chance to Eat Cheese Again
Well this was a fun tag to do! I learnt some new cheeses (some of my favourites weren’t on here, but I’d never heard of others!). I tag anyone who loves cheese and books to have a go!
