Coffee Lovers Book Tag

(Sorry I was radio silent on Friday, y’all. My church was hosting a great conference this weekend.)

A friend, fellow book blogger, and super cool author, Lydia Howe tagged me to do this coffee themed book tag. Thanks, Lydia! This looks like so much fun. 😉 And everyone, be sure to watch her extra fun vlog! 


Confession: I’m a tea girl. And by tea, it’s pretty much just cinnamon tea or matcha chai tea. Whenever I visit our favorite Christian coffee shop, Starbucks, or brew myself a cup at home, that’s what I make. 😉 I have this gigantic maroon red mug I got for Christmas a year ago. It’s the perfect size for enough tea. 😀

I do love coffee shops, though. Coffee is one of the best smells, and it’s the perfect gathering place for a writers’ group.

Okay, now for the questions. 😉 I’ll quit rambling.

1. Black coffee–name a series that is tough to get into but has hardcore fans. I’ll be honest here, the Elsie Dinsmore series is that one for me. I tried the first two books, I believe, but I found how emotional Elsie was and how changeable her father was annoying. 😉 No offense to anyone who loves them. I do think it’s pretty cool how God has used these books to bless people!


2. Peppermint mocha–name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year. Hmm… This is a tough one. 😉 I’ll go with the book I always think of when I want something cozy or Christmas-y. Gift from the Storm by Rebekah Morris is a great home-y story of ordinary people being used by God. It’s really sweet. ❤


3. Hot chocolate–what is your favorite children’s book? Aaaaaa, this question is too hard! I read quite a few children’s books and love nearly all of them. 😉 I think I’ll go with a picture book since that’s the most childrenish children’s book you can get. 😉 Audrey Bunny is a story of unconditional loving choice, and it’s illustrated by one of my all-time favorite artists. What’s not to love?


4. Double shot of espresso–name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. (Side note, if I had two shots of espresso I would be awake for 100 years. Which would make me the opposite of Sleeping Beauty. More like a Beast.) I’m going with Crossroads as the book that had me so on the edge of my seat I almost fell off. It exhausted me, actually, but in a good way. 😉 So good.


5. Starbucks–name a book you see everywhere. I see The Book Thief everywhere! Which makes me happy, happy. 😉 With some whiteout for language, it’s a good one. In fact, I think I blog about it way too much. 😀


6. That “hipster” coffee shop–give a book by an indie author a shoutout. Hope Ann is one of my favorite indie authors, and I nearly died with delight (too dramatic?) when I found out her first three Legends of Light books were going to be compiled in paperback. Aaaah!!! I have my own copy now. ❤ This series is so good, y’all. The best of fantasy with themes that draw me closer to my Savior. May I present, Burning Rose


7. Oops! I accidentally ordered decaf–name a book you were expecting more from. Trilogies have this terrible thing about them called “The Middle Book”. Someday, if I want to write a trilogy, I will write four books and throw away whichever book is too boring. But, back to the topic at hand… I enjoyed (with reservations) the Matched series, but the I found the middle book, Crossed, to be veeeerrrry slow, overly romantic, and generally boring. I’m still glad I read it, though, because some of the threads were important for the last book. 😉

8. The perfect blend–name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying. I’m going with Wings of a Dream, a lovely book I was blessed to read this month. A good friend of mine sent it to me for Christmas, and I read it in a day. *sighs happily*


There you go! Now I really want some tea and a good book to read. 😉 I tag Victoria Lynn at Ruffles and Grace and anyone else who would like to do this tag. (Bonus points if you make it a vlog. 😉 )

Have you read any of these books? What is your favorite hot beverage?

  1. Yay! Thank you for doing the tag! It was a lot of fun reading your answers. I never used to like tags very much, but now I find them quite interesting, and it really IS an honor to be tagged. 😉 (I mean, at least I consider it to be something special when I tag someone…)
    I used to not do much caffeine, either, but working at a coffee shop might have changed that slightly. Now I have to remind myself that even if a double-shot looks small, it’s still powerful. 😉

    1. Aw, you’re welcome! Thanks so much for tagging me! ❤ I think they are pretty fun too. 😀

      That's really cool! Ha, ha! I sense a story here. (Is that where the inspiration for Destiny's crazy day in WDG came from? XD)

  2. Oh, that looks like fun! Lovely post, Kate. What a fun way to tie hot drinks and books together. 🙂 Now I think there should be one with cold drinks: lemonade, sweet tea, ice water, juice, carbonated something, chocolate milk, milkshake, . . .

  3. I don’t drink coffee — at all. But I thought I’d do the tag. 😉

    1. Name a series that is tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
    I’m going for the Second World War Series of Sir Winston Churchill because I really can’t think of anything. I haven’t really read it yet, because I only have volumes 2 & 3, and I’m waiting to purchase Volume 1. Churchill is hard to get into because it’s deep and very detailed, but he has many fans (such as I 😉).

    2. Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.
    Hmm. . . “The Long Winter” by Laura Ingalls Wilder? I’ve seen it mentioned/featured on a blogger’s IG feed and blog this winter.

    3. What is your favorite children’s book?
    Ahhhh. . . that is hard. I’m going with “Adèle & Simon” by Barbara McClintock. It’s a MUST!!! I’m 17 but even I love to look at the illustrations, and my siblings (15-3—the youngest can’t read it yet, he’ll tear it to pieces lol!) love it too. ❤

    4. Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
    I don't read many “edge of my seat” books. I mostly read old-fashioned, sweet, classical books. Recently I read “Dark Storm Rising” by Jesseca Wheaton, and from the beginning I was puzzling myself over Major Raymond, and action was certainly not wanting in the book. 😉 (P.S. ❤ ❤ Major Raymond).

    5. Name a book you see everywhere.
    “Left to Die” by Ivy Rose. And no wonder. ❤

    6. Give a book by an indie author a shoutout.
    “Jonas & Olivia” by Victoria Minks!!! If you haven't read it, you definitely should!!!!! ❤ ❤

    7. Name a book you were expecting more from.
    Hm. “Befriending the Beast” by Amanda Tero. I think it wasn't exactly what I expected. Its a very good book though!! I'll be rereading it soon, and I expect I will like it more. 🙂

    8. Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.
    Jesseca Wheaton's “A Question of Honor.” ❤ Broke my heart and made me happy; made me cry and made me laugh. ❤ ❤
