I found this tag over at Lauren Busser’s Blog and I thought that I would give it a try. I love chocolate and I couldn’t resist the chance to relate books to this amazing food of the gods.
So, here we go.
Warning: I may have used some inappropriate photos and you may leave this tag with a sudden craving of chocolate!
A book that covers a dark topic (abuse, domestic violence, rape, lonlieness, bullying, death, etc)
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris definitely fit the bill. This book doesn’t go into grave details but you gan feel the gravity of the situation where millions of lives were lost.

A book that has a lot of hype that you’re dying to read
A hyped book that I am dying to read is I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Foreman. This book sounds amazing. How can you not be hooked when you read:

I’ve been avoiding spoilers regarding it because I just want to experience this amazing book for myself.

Name a book that surprised you lately.
I was completely blown away by The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden. I love reading books about my home state of Louisiana and the bayou region. Often though, as a native, I can tell when the author gets a wrong. Arden hit the nail on the head. She weaves history and legend beautifully.

What series have you read that you feel has a wide variety and a little something for everyone
I love reading series books. The journey that a character or a family take is wonderful to watch. Sometimes I am left wanting to see where a character will end up with a stand-alone.
This series follows the Quinn family and all the dynamics that go along with family.
That’s it for the chocolate book tag! I don’t apologize to anyone who might be craving chocolate after reading this. I am however, going to tag a few people to keep this going.
And anyone else who has happened upon this tag and wants to give it a try! Please don’t be shy!
As always if you’ve done this before or if this isn’t your cup of tea, you can ignore this tag and I won’t take it personally.
Happy Reading!! — xo Carmen
