I don’t usually subscribe to all the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, but I did the Chocolate Book tag on YouTube last year on a whim on Chocolate Day 2021. I’m repackaging and updating it for the blog here for Chocolate Day 2022 because whatever happens, whatever the times, chocolate is eternal and books are eternal and the combination, even more so. 😉
This yum tag was originally created by the channel A Daydreamer’s Ramblings. 🙂
If you’d like to support me by buying me a coffee or a book, here’s where you can: buymeacoffee.com/bookwormdrama. Thank you in advance. ❤

5. Wafer-free Kit-Kat: Name a book that surprised you lately.
The Broken Ones by Sarah A. Denzil! And boy, what a cracker of a thriller that was! It redeemed every thriller that I read in 2021 because each of them was so frustrating. This made it better and now, I’m going to go read the other Sarah A. Denzil books on my TBR.
6. Snickers: A book that you are going nuts about

7. Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows: What book would you turn to for a comfort read?
Any Nikita Gill or Matt Haig book. They always manage to make me feel like I’m not alone in my feelings in this shitshow of a world.
8. Box of chocolates: What series have you read that you feel has a wide variety and a little something for everyone?
The Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. There’s fun, action, angst, humor, love – so much that the characters bring to your imagination that it is difficult to pick out which one you love the most.
So that was my Chocolate Book Tag. What are your answers to these questions? Which of the books mentioned in this post have you read? Which do you want to read? Which ones would you recommend that I prioritize? Let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you!
I’ll be back soon with a new, extra personal blog post.
Until next time, keep reading and add melodrama to your life!
