Pastry Book Tag!

Bookwormaniac created (I think) this tag, and I saw it on Readwatchreviewblog and decided to tag myself because I thought it looks fun, even though my coeliac’s disease means that I have absolutely no idea what most of these taste like (except macarons which are usually gluten free! Whoo!). And I haven’t done a tag in forever. So, let’s start shall we? Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.   A Court of Thorns and Roses. Tumblr is all about this series right now, and with good reason. It’s just so awesome. All of tumblr can’t be wrong. Easy. Next!   Macaron: Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it at the end. How are macarons easy to get through? they are so tiny and delicate. Anyway, although gone girl was incredibly addictive and I read it in no time, it was difficult for me as I actually know an Amy Dunn, and I’m still traumatised from my encounter with her. So terrifying. If you think Amy …

A book with water 3. A book with a flower 4. A book with a heart  5. A book with Gone in the title 6. A girl in a white dress 7. A couple kissing (well, almost) 8. A book with headphones 9. A book with a moon 10. A book with a weapon I tag: TheWritingHufflepuff, DarcysBookBlog, PrettyPagesBlog, and BookishSmaug

Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

“I often don’t say things out loud, even when I should. I contain and compartmentalize to a disturbing degree: In my belly-basement are hundreds of bottles of rage, despair, fear, but you’d never guess from looking at me.” If you’ve been living on planet Earth, then there is no way you aren’t familiar with this book. And there is a reason for this: this book is impossible to ignore. Whether you’ve read the book or seen the movie, one thing is for sure, you’re probably terrified of Gillian Flynn, because this lady is dark. “We weren’t ourselves when we fell in love, and when we became ourselves – surprise! – we were poison. We complete each other in the nastiest, ugliest possible way.” What’s it about: I’m not sure if there is anyone out there who doesn’t know what this is about, but in case you’ve been trapped in a cave for the last few years, I’ll sum up for you.
