Chocolate Book Tag......

Thanks to Jill from http://jilllovestoread.blogspot.co.uk/ for tagging me in this great idea.  Like a top ten with a difference!

1. Dark chocolate: a book that covers a dark topic.

Barracuda by Christos Tsiolkas.
A gritty read but so cleverly done. The story of one boys failure and how he perceives himself afterwards.




2. White chocolate: your favourite lighthearted / humorous read.

The Snapper by Roddy Doyle.
An absolutely hilarious look at family life in Dublin in the 1990s.




3. Milk chocolate: a book that has a lot of hype that you're dying to read.

The Rosie project by Graeme Simion.  I actually picked it up in Waterstones the other day, so will start very soon.

4. Chocolate with a caramel centre: a book that makes you feel all gooey in the middle while you are reading it

Marley & Me by John Grogan.  I'm a huge dog lover so, say no more!



5. Wafer free kit kat: name a book that has surprised you lately

How to get a (love) life by Rosie Blake. I was expecting a run of the mill chick-lit story but I really did laugh out loud!



6. Snickers: a book that you are going nuts about

The Herbalist by Niamh Boyce.  Pure perfection. I wish I had written it!



7. Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows: a book that you would turn to for a comfort read.

Pride & Prejudice. Works for me, everytime. I ADORE Mr. Darcy :)




8. Box of chocolates: what series have you read that you feel has a wide variety and something for everyone.

I love the Camilla Lackberg novels featuring Patrick Hedstrom . So well written, great crime thrillers. 



( I am making up the next type of chocolate, so I can fit this book in! )
9. Chilli chocolate : you don't think you are going to like it, buy you SO do !!


My unexpected love this year was Zenith Hotel by Oscar Coop-Phane.  Translated from french, it is a short, sharp novel with some real depth. 





Hope you may spot something you like here.  Keep checking back for reviews and giveaways!!!!
