Top Ten Tuesday: Read this if you’re in the mood for…

Read this if you’re in the mood for…

So this weeks topic is ‘Read this if you’re in the mood for X’ and my mind just sort of jumped to this idea I have had for a little while now. I wanted to recommend books based on drink choices. As readers I think most of us are curled up with a book and a cup of something delicious so here is a bit of a twist on this weeks topic.

  • If you are in the mood for espresso
    Something strong and dark; try Red Rising by Pierce Brown
  • If you are in the mood for a hazelnut latte
    Something warm and comforting; try Alanna by Tamora Pierce8248439
  • If you are in the mood for chai
    Something spicy and rich; try The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson
  • If you are in the mood for herbal tea
    Something light and fun; try Anne of Green Gables by L M Montgomery
  • If you are in the mood for earl grey
    Something bitter but sweet; try Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman

    1. Thank you! I have wanted to write it for quite some time. Ever since I saw a ‘if you like this, read this’ video on youtube. I am really surprised I havent seen anyone else compare books and drinks before. Seems to be two things we all love!

      2. Hey that would be great! I would love to read it. I kidn of want to go back and add those other five drinks now. LOL I just thought of a book for Green Tea. Who says I cant go back and add to my own post?

      3. I think you could do a standalone post with the other drinks and link it back to your ttt 😁 but going back and editing your post is also possible…there are no rules! It would be fun to see what you’ve got for green tea.

    1. Butter beer! No really, it’s funny you say that because that’s exactly what I was going to put for hot chocolate! I was also going to go apple cider, green tea, and steamed milk but I was having trouble picking books for those so I left it at five.


  1. Oh I LOVE how you did the prompt! THAT IS AWESOME. XD And I love your combinations…omg absolutely yes yes to Red Rising being espresso. xD That book is awesomely dark and delicious. And I’ve never had Earl Grey but I reeeally want to read Blackhearts. ;D
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
