Afternoon Tea Book Tag


Hello everyone,

I was tagged by the wonderful Amy @ The Shelf Of Unread Books for this one, which made me extremely happy as the post combines two of the absolute best things in the world – books and tea!

I love an afternoon tea, preferably with some cake. In fact, it is a fixed part of my day and something which I always look forward to. Tea is my favourite drink, and I have a large mug of it beside me as I type.

Anyway, on to the tag! There are only a few prompts for this one, but they are all great and I am excited to answer them.


Finger Sandwiches: A Book You Savoured Every Minute Of


There are a lot of books I could have chosen for this prompt, but I will go for Ariadne as I was wrapped up in the story from the very first sentence, in awe of the beautiful writing, and totally invested in the the story of the two main characters.

Scones: A Book Everyone Should Own

I love scones! I also really like Amy’s answer to this prompt, which was a good dictionary. Anyway, as for my answer…if we are going for fiction it would either have to be a timeless classic (something like To Kill A Mockingbird), or a groundbreaking contemporary book that takes on an important topic.

I realise that is not a complete answer, but that is how I see the question! In the UK there is a famous radio show called Desert Island Discs, where all the castaways are given the complete works of William Shakespeare, so perhaps that is an option too…

Biscuits: A Book that Can be Finished in One Sitting

I very rarely finish reading anything in one sitting, so it would have to be something pretty short and light. Luckily, Alice fits that description perfectly, and is an absolute delight to read.

Patisserie: A Book that is Light and Easy to Read

This book had some powerful messages at its core, but was just so sweet. Light and easy to read – absolutely!

Showstopper: A Book that Blew You Away

You will soon grow tired of me gushing about this book, but it did truly blow me away in just about every respect. I loved it – the writing was extraordinary and it had an amazing protagonist and fast-paced, unpredictable plot.

Tea: A Heart-warming Classic

I have already spoken about classics in this post, so I will go for any heartwarming book for this prompt. Another one that I have spoken about a lot on here is With The Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo. I adored it completely and reading it just made me feel really happy.


And that is everything! I am tagging three amazing blogging friends who I know love books and tea:

Kaya
Shaz
Yesha

Happy reading 🙂
