The Candy Book Tag

Hello our little cherry blossoms, we were nominated to do The Candy Book Tag by the lovely Sarah @ Between the Pages – be sure to check out her blog, it’s très cool!! This will be our second tag, so we’re still pretty new to this – so bear with us 😉 .
Check out our previous tag, Ruler Of Books Tag.

[We put links to the Goodreads profile of the books mentioned down below]

So without further ado, we may begin!! 

Apples – Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck – While we did find the story enjoyable, we personally would not have read this if the education system didn’t require us to. We can say we are glad to have read this book… But we think we’ll stick to Young Adult for now 😉 .

Of Mice and Men

Milk Chocolate – This is a book you’d recommend to absolutely EVERYONE.

We know we said in our last post (Top Ten Tuesday: BLUE covers) that it would be our last time we mention this series… Buttt guys, you should have seen this coming now – it gotta be Sarah J. Maas’ books ‘Throne of Glass‘ series and ‘A Court of Thorns and Roses‘ trilogy.
Beautiful writing. Fabulous plot. Adorable characters. What more do you want!!?

Black Jellybeans – Why do these exist??

Sorry but it has to be The Wolves of Mercy Falls (AKA Shiver series) by Maggie Stiefvater
We read this a very long time ago when we were just starting out into the bookish world. We completed the series when it was confirmed to be a trilogy (until Maggie decided to make the 4th book, 3 years later). Thinking back on it – it dragged! The storyline would have done well (in our opinions) as a standalone.

Perhaps one day we may reread this series…perhaps not…

Gummy Spiders – Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.

Don’t know about you guys but, for us, reading scary books don’t actually make us scared. That may be due to us not really reading many horror books…. Before even reading them we just feel we won’t be scared…. This is bad we know! So in the future, we do plan to read horror/scary books – gives us some suggestions guys we neeeed themmm!!

Though it’s a completely different story with movies! We get scared. Like hide-behind-the-pillow scared!! We haven’t watched this in a long time (due to the impression it left on us when we were kids) but a movie that freaked us out back then (probably it won’t now) would be Child’s Play, which also happens to be a novel.

Child's Play

Jumbo Lollipop – This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!

It would have to be Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl.
We did not, however, complete this series. If memory serves us correctly then this book was not bad (yet still took long to finish) but the second book dragged and so on… We don’t even think ‘creatures’ were even mentioned!

 Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)

Cotton Candy – Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think children’s or MG fiction.

This is obvious – it has to be Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson saga!! You get wicked greek (then roman) knowledge and some sassy cool characters with an unbelievably enjoyable plot!! What’s not to like huh??! We love it more now, that we are older!!

  1. OMG i read BEAUTIFUL CREATURES but did not finish it because it was so long and dragging *SPOILER especially when Ethan dies i had enough and the books go on to 7 books. like a love series if they are worth the read. SORRY to all i may offend but i did love the book at the time. plus ACOMAF is a beautiful series and i will read it to the last book. PLUS i have read LINGER which is weird as i didn’t read the first one and its a good book when u need a break.

  2. I couldn’t even finish Beautiful Creatures! My best friend has read the whole series I think and I just couldn’t even get past half way, it was so long and dragging and just boring. OMG have you read Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake? It is an awesome YA horror and one of my favourite books, the sequel is OK but not as good as book one. And anything by Stephen King but they’re obviously not YA 🙂

    1. Literally we don’t even know anyone who finished Beautiful Creatures!! Lol 😂 Thanks for the book suggestions – we heard of Anna Dressed in Blood and already knew Stephan King books – hopefully we get the chance to read them 😊

  3. I’m so glad you did this, I loved all of your answers! I’m just bought A Court of Thorns and Roses, and I’m so excited that I’m finally going to read the series! Of Mice and Men was recommended to me a few weeks ago, but I chose to read a few different classics instead.

  4. Ugh, Chucky. I’ve never watched the movies or apparently read the books, but I can’t deal with dolls now because of him. And omigosh, yes, I used to loveeeeeee Shiver when it first came out, but dear gosh, looking back at it. I got upset with the second book because it pulled a very New Moon kind of thing where they forced them apart and then I just remember everything got totally messy. And YES to Beautiful Creatures. My friend forced me into reading it and lovedddddd it so of course I felt the pressure to as well, but it just draggggggged for me. Wonderful post, you two! And thanks so much for thinking of me with the tag – I actually did it before, though, but I really appreciate it! ❤ Great post! 🙂

    1. Chucky is real spooky lol😂!! Yes Shiver could have done better and so could have Beautiful Creatures – It’s a shame really, for such hyped up books, we too were convinced to read Beautiful Creatures but it felt pointless…Aww thanks and no worries 😊

  5. Thanks much for thinking of me, I’ll find time to do this soon! Such a fun and wonderful list! 😊 Horror is my first love, but I have to say, all doll movies are creepy. As for scary novels, I’d suggest Stephen King’s Nightmares and Dreamscapes! And I’ll continue to avoid Beautiful Creatures, not a big fan of the movie. 😉

    1. Take the time you need!! Oooh thanks!! Dolls and clowns (and popping images) are usually the ones to freak us right out!! Thanks for the recommendations – we’ll be sure to check them out hopefully!! Yeah, we were totally surprised with the accent (put us right off)! It’s a shame really for such a hyped up book..

  6. Awesome post!! Thank you so much for tagging me!! .< But I am cr reading ACOWAR so yeey!!
    I don't really read many horror stories either, and I haven't even watched Child’s Play, although I heard of it and it freaked me out… I guess I will give it a try 😛
    Plus Percy Jackson!! ❤ ❤

    1. It cut half of my text… Damn it wordpress!
      It’s missing after tagging me: I love this tag so much! Which is no wonder since I love candy… 😛
      There’s a lot of books here that I have in my TBR but I kinda lost interest in like Beautiful Creatures and The Wolves of Mercy Falls. But I do intend to read a Throne of Glass and I already even own it but I haven’t gotten to it >.< But I am….. and it continues in the last post 😛

      1. Oh LOL 😂 WordPress can be rude like that we found – we too had a similar problem when commenting on other posts, there’s a LIMIT! Thanks for liking this tag of ours and we hope you get to it soon 😊 We had trouble finishing Beautiful Creatures – it just wasn’t our style and Wolves of Mercy Falls just drags… We’re glad you’re reading SJMaas books they are absolutely pure GOLD!! Rick Riordan books are just filled with sass and it’s just sooo awesome! Hope you enjoy doing this tag as much as we did!! 😊😊

      2. Oh!! I didn’t know that :O Now it makes sense… Although annoying –‘
        I have way to many tags still to do >.< But I am getting to them! 😀 I love doing them but sometimes time is a really nasty thing 😛
        I am sure I will! Thank you! 😀

    2. Awww thanks so much!! We cannot wait to read ACOWAR – hope you Enjoy like we plan to! We do plan to read more horrors in the future hopefully and for Child’s Play, even though it freaked us out too – we plan on watching that and laugh (and most likely cry)! Rick Riordan’s work is simply awesome!! 👌

      1. I read ACOWAR and I personally loved it! It was such an emotional ride and I loved the action in it. The beginning was slow but I enjoyed every page of it! Hope you really enjoy it because a lot of people seem to be disappointed by it >.<
        I will probably see Child’s Play this year… I mean, it's about time I do it 😛
        I'm now reading The Dark Prophecy and 200 pages in… ahhhh I am loving it even more than the first one! ❤ Can't wait for you guys to read it! ^^

      2. AHHH WE HAVE TO STUDY AND HERE YOU ARE MAKING US FANGIRL! BOTH THOSE BOOKS WE HAVE BEEN HIGHLY ANTICIPATING😆😆😆 and sorry for the caps lock but yes the feels are real!! Oh it’s a shame some have found ACOWAR a disappointment – but we’ll likely be a bit (perhaps a lot) biased ‘cuz SJMAAS!!🤓 Looks like we all need to watch Child’s Play – perhaps it’s not scary as it once was? 😅

  7. This tag was sooo good and it looks like so much fun! I haven’t read many of the books you guys mentioned, except for Throne of Glass & ACOTAR (#1) and Beautiful Creatures and I feel you guys over having a hard time with Beautiful Creatures! I did so too, but once I got into it I couldn’t help reading the other two books! I’m just missing one now!

    Great tag! 😀

    1. We definitely had fun doing this tag for sure! Why don’t you do this tag – we’ll love to hear your choices! We can see why people may have liked Beautiful Creatures and we were sad to have stopped reading the series – it just didn’t call to us like other books did!! We don’t really like stopping half way with a series (even if it is kinda bad) but by then other books had called to us! 😊

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Yes, I’ll see if I do it soon! And I completely understand, it is a very likeable series, but it’s too slow so getting called and lured away by other books is completely normal and it happened to me too halfway through the series! And same, I don’t really like stopping half way with a series! :<

        Liked by 2 people

      2. We look forward to it (if you decide to do this post)!! 😊 We don’t know anyone who likes stopping halfway in a series and it is a shame we couldn’t continue with this..oh well 🙂

  8. Totally agree about ToG! I haven’t read ACOTAR yet but I’ll get to it…
    Oh I don’t usually read horror books either, but if I do they are usually more creepy than actually scary. Movies, on the other hand, do freak me out quite a lot!
    I did start Shiver but didn’t get far. Just about two pages in XD But I still plan on reading it.
    Another lovely post, girls 🙂

    1. Oooh you’ll love ACOTAR (especially the 2nd book). YESS the little horrors we have read (ages ago) just was creepy – didn’t makes us scream or have nightmares! But movies have the sound and popping images just to freak you out to the max! Perhaps you may like Shiver – we did read it a very long time ago, do tell us what you think about it! Aww thank you!! 😊😊❤

      1. We’ll tell you now – there’s not much wolves (except at the start) in the book! Give this series a chance, the 1st book we’ll be honest is not perfect…but the second 😉 😉

  9. Hi! So a while back I asked for questions for a future Q&A, but you probably don’t remember, and that’s perfectly understandable (because I have a terrible memory myself). I just wanted to drop a link to it on your blog, so you would know I answered your question! 😊https://btweenthepages.com/2017/06/06/500-followers-qa-giveaway/
