1. Cupcakes – name a collection of short stories, poems, or anthologies where you couldn’t read just one section and had to go back for another

I’m actually not a fan of short story collections. I much prefer novels/novellas.
But I’ll go with Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas. I powered through that one pretty quickly and enjoyed it for the most part.


2. Lemon Pound Cake – Name a book that has 400 pages or more that you considered a comfort read and a classic

Not a classic but over 400 pages and a comfort read – A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of rereading it.


3. Red Velvet cake – Name a book that you thought was one thing, but ended up being something completely different

Uprooted by Naomi Novik
I thought this would be an amazing fantasy/romance but it was just a snoozefest.
I was so disappointed in this book.


4. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough – Name a book or a book series that you can read over and over again even though you know that it’s bad for you

I don’t believe any books or series are ‘bad’ for anyone – read what you want, whenever you want!
I’ll go with Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson, I’ve read this twice already and really want to pick it up again (hopefully soon). I love this book with every fibre of my being!


5. Apple Pie a la Mode – Name a book that was really good but could have been better with a little bit of ice cream

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater


6. Gingerbread Cookies – Do you like your gingerbread cookies crunchy or soft. 1. If you like your cookies soft name a book that was squishy in the middle, but the beginning and the end were really good. 2. If you like your cookies crunchy or more like ginger snaps name a book that you finished, but that you wanted to throw at a wall, or snap

Crunchy!
The Wicked King by Holly Black


7. Brownies – Are you a corner piece or a middle piece? 1. If you’re a corner piece, name a book that starts off strong and then all comes apart. 2. If you’re a middle piece, name a book that kept you in the feels the entire time.

Oooh, I like both. I’ll with corner piece…
The Humans by Matt Haig
The beginning was so good and funny, it just got boring towards the end, sadly!


8. Birthday Cake – Name a book series or an author that you feel like keeps coming out with a book, short story, novella every year

Brandon Sanderson!
I don’t think anyone releases more than him, the man is a machine!! He pumps out multiple books a year. Crazy.


9. Carrot Cake – Name a book that sounded healthy for you, but ended up being unhealthy either with content, or put you in a reading slump.

Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron
This put me in such a reading slump. I thought this would be a new fave, the premise sounded so good but the execution was poor.


10. Tag some friends you would love to share some baked goods with
