A long while ago ( I mean, seriously, a long time. It could be years, I have no idea.) I stole this tag from Olivia's blog. This post, labeled as "Chocolate Book Tag (stolen from Arwen)" (that's how long ago it was; Olivia originally called herself Arwen when she started out blogging) has been sitting in my drafts ever since then. In fact, if I went to the trouble of finding Olivia's post, I could probably find my comment asking if it was okay for me to steal the tag. Let's see... here it is.
Aww, look. I had my Marian profile picture then. (Okay, it was over a year ago. Not years. Apologies.)
Dark Chocolate (a book that covers a dark topic):
The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. It's not a dark book (I personally found it one of the most hopeful and inspiring books ever) but since it covers some of the horrid evils of the Holocaust, I think it counts.
The Wide Awake Princess by E.D. Baker. A little silly, a little young, but quite funny, I really love this book. And Liam. Liam is really sweet. :)
Hmm, perhaps The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. And guess what? I got a copy for my birthday!
Oh goodness, can I include a list? :P Okay, fine...maybe Catching Moondrops by Jennifer Erin Valent. Jessy and Luke finally get engaged and it's just...gah. SO SWEET.
Catrin in Wales by Mabel Esther Allan definitely surprised me. It was just a random book my mom picked out at a rummage sale. I had no idea it would become one of my favorites. (THANK YOU, MOM!!)
Right now? It's really sad, but I'm not really going nuts about any book right now. I discovered there's a children's book about the true events of the Newboys Strike of 1899 (I'm probably not supposed to capitalize that, but it deserves to be capitalized) and I reeaaallly want it. It's called Kid Blink Beats the World by Don Brown.
(Oh, and I found out about it by watching Corey Cott's "King of New York" vlog. It was on a shelf in the background. If you're a fan of Newsies on Broadway, you neeeeed to watch it. Here's the first episode.)
Hot Chocolate with Mini Marshmallows (a book you turn to for comfort):
Maybe The Betsy Tacy Series by Maud Hart Lovelace.
A series? For everyone? Goodness, that's hard. I'm going to say Lord of the Rings. Because why not?
ps. How do you like my new summer blog design? I should have done it earlier, but oh well. Better late than never. :P
ps2. Thank you all SO much for your lovely comments on my birthday post. You all made my day. :D
