Today is Thursday, which means it is book tag day! Today I’m doing the Cheesy Goodness Tag, which I found a while back on Books Less Travelled. I really enjoy cheese, and I loved answering these questions.

Cheddar – The Traditional Cheese: Name Your Favorite Classic Novel
My favourite classic novel is The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. The first time I read this one, I picked it up because a guy I had a crush on mentioned he had read it and enjoyed it. I didn’t like it much the first time I read it, but I reread it a few years later for an assignment, and I appreciated it much more.
Swiss – A Hole-y Cheese: Name an Emotional Roller Coaster
I thought Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon was an emotional roller coaster. My life was an emotional roller coaster when I read this book, so I ended up sobbing on my kitchen floor when I read the last part of this book. I’m not sure if I would have had the same reaction if I had read this a few months earlier or later, but there were tears at the time. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Instructions for Dancing.
Blue Cheese – The Controversial Cheese: Name an Unpopular Book Opinion You Have
I was not a fan of One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston. I loved Red, White and Royal Blue, but I couldn’t get into One Last Stop. My issue with this book was I was getting annoyed with some of the life choices that the main character was reading, so I ended up not finishing this one. I will say that I’m willing to give this book another chance when I’m in a better mood and willing to be more forgiving to fictional characters.
Brie – The Favorite Cheese: Name an Author You Always Want More Of
How am I supposed to pick one author for a question like this? I want more books from B.B. Alston because I am impatiently waiting for the sequel to Amari and the Night Brothers. I want more magical adventures from Ben Aaronovitch, even though I still have some of the Rivers of London series to read. I also want more Taylor Jenkins Reid even though I still have to read her books that were released before The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I would also love more from
Gouda – The Dutch Cheese: Name A Book That Makes You Want to Travel
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch makes me want to travel to Italy. I’ve read this book a few times, and I’m planning on rereading it again this month to prepare for the movie, and every time I pick it up, I want to travel to Italy.
American – The Fake Cheese: Name Your Least Favorite Book/A Book You Love to Hate On
I don’t think there are any books that I love to hate on. There are books that I dislike, but I’m always disappointed when I dislike a book.
Colby Jack – A Mixed Cheese: Name Your Favorite Ship
So, because I need sleep, when I read this question, I thought of an actual ship instead of shipping a fictional couple. But, since talking about fictional ships is easier than romance, I will stick with my sleep-deprived interpretation of this question. I really like the Frostheart from Frostheart by Jamie Littler and The Ship of Shadows from The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Frostheart and here’s my review of The Ship of Shadows.
Mozzarella – The Simple Cheese: Name an Old Favorite You’ll Never Stop Loving
I think I will always love The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This book is no longer in my top five favourites, but I think it will always hold a special place in my heart. I’ve read it so many times, and I think I will always love it.
Pepper Jack – The Spicy Cheese: Name A Book You Can’t Judge by Its Cover
At this moment, I have somehow forgotten the cover of every book I’ve read. I can’t think of any books I’ve read lately with memorably bad covers.
Muenster – The Monster Cheese: Name A Villain That You Wish Never Had the Joy of Eating Cheese Again
I’m going to go with the villain from the last book I finished, Skandar and the Unicorn Thief by A.F. Steadman. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I hope the Unicorn Thief never gets to enjoy cheese again. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Skandar and the Unicorn Thief.
