Hi everyone, it’s Angela!
I am, personally, not a fan of wine, but I thought this tag seemed like a lot of fun. Plus, it was created by Boho Bookworm who is such a lovely BookTuber.
Let’s get started!
Box Wine – a book that people will judge you for liking but you like it anyway!
Down the Rabbit Hole by Holly Madison. Holly Madison is a former Playboy Bunny and this book is a memoir of her experiences in the Mansion. I listened to this as an audiobook and absolutely loved it. It wasn’t the most well-written book in the world, but I wasn’t listening to it because I wanted perfect prose; I wanted to know what it was really like to live in the Playboy Mansion.
Organic Wine – a book that doesn’t have any added crap in it and is just written perfectly.
The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler. This book told an amazing story while being wonderfully simplistic and straightforward.
Gluehwein – a really spicy, wintry read.
A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. I read this play in school during the winter so I just associate it with the season, but it is very spicy. It’s even spicier if you watch the film adaptation because of Marlon Brando.
Sauvignon Blanc – a really sharp and aggressive read that you couldn’t put down!
A Time to Kill by John Grisham. The film adaptation of this book is one of my favorite films, and while it is better, the book is still great, too. The story revolves around the court case of an African American man in the South who killed his daughter’s white rapists. This book is definitely very sharp and aggressive and it does not sugar coat anything.
Pinot Noir – a book you didn’t expect much from but ended up getting blown away!
One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern. I said in my review of this that I expected nothing from it and already planned on it being a 3 star read. Instead, this book sucked me in and was fantastic. I gave it 5 stars and it ended up being one of my top books of 2015.
Chardonnay – a good summer read that was super-zesty.
Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry. This is such a great summer read and the whole biker club aspect made it really unique. What makes this read zesty is the romance between Emily and Oz. It was just so good.
Rose – a book that has a little bit of everything in it.
The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson. This book has so much going for it. It deals with dark topics, it has romance, a LGBTQ+ protagonist, and it even has an entire graphic novel in it as well. This book is so important and everyone should read it!
Shiraz – A full-bodied book that is dark and juicy.
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols. I wouldn’t say this book is full-bodied length-wise, but it’s definitely dark and juicy. It has dark themes and both the main character and her love interest are a little dark and twisty. Also, their romance is super juicy. He’s a cop and she’s the girl he arrested, that’s almost the definition of juicy.
Merlot – a smooth easy read with a soft finish.
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. This book is so easy to get into and the plot is so smooth and subtle. It’s just an all-around great read.
Champagne – Your Favorite Book
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. No surprise here.
Thanks for reading!
