I was nominated by Audrey over at audreywritesabroad, thank you!
- Post the rules before starting and link back to this post as a reference for other bloggers.
- Part A: Answer each of the fruit questions, explaining why you thought that particular book deserves that particular fruit.
- Part B: Choose your favorite fruit (even if it is one of the fruits in part A). Come up with a question that we didn’t ask and answer it.
- Part C: Create your own smoothie from the fruits in Part A (imagine a Lemon-Tomato-Apple smoothie ~ yuck), and find a book that would correlate to your smoothie!
- Nominate as many and anyone that you think are deserving of this award!
- Notify your nominees of the nomination.
- The most important rules? Have fun and of course, keep it fresh!
1. Strawberries – Name the sweetest book you’ve read. (e.g. sweet in terms of the characters or if the story takes place in a sweet world… etc.)
2. Coconut – What is a book that you would bring on vacation with you to a tropical destination? (Or if you’re just relaxing at the beach…)
3. Pineapple – What is a book that you didn’t think you would like by judging its cover/summary/the first few pages but started to grow on you?
4. Orange – What’s the juiciest book you’ve read? (e.g. A book with tons of action, romance… etc.)
5. Watermelon – A watery book (e.g. There wasn’t tons of substance to the book/the details were just too watery, etc. Don’t get us wrong though, we love watermelons!)
I honestly, I don’t know what to pick for this one!
6. Dragonfruit – What’s the most unique book you’ve read? (e.g. Unique in writing style, characters, plot … etc.)
7. Lemons – Name a book that made you feel sour. (e.g. The emotions were just sour, you just felt sour reading the book, or the book includes sour characters… etc.)
8. Tomato – What is a wonderful book that you think should be more widely known? Or a fantastic author whom you think deserves more recognition? (Since some may not know that tomatoes are actually fruits!
9. Apple – Name a really stereotypical book of a certain genre just like apples which are typical fruits. In the end was that book good or not? (e.g. A very typical contemporary/fantasy book… etc.)
This was a typical Stephen King book that was very enjoyable.
10. Blueberries – Name a book that made you feel blue. (Any sad, depressing books that you’ve read?)
11. Grapefruit – Any bitter books? (e.g. a book that was blue but MORE … do you have any bitter resentments towards characters from a book? Any sour turned bitter emotions? Any uber-hateful villains?)
12. Limes – Name a funny book that you’ve read because limes add flavour and so does humour with every book.
Oddly enough, I have not read a funny book so far this year. I need to remedy this quickly.
Create your own.
Peach – Name a books that was just peachy/excellent.
Smoothie: Strawberry + apple + orange + pineapple + blueberry.
I loved Audrey answer so I am going to take it, sorry Audrey! I am picking the Harry Potter series as whole because it made me feel many emotions throughout the series, and because Smoothies are amazing and so is the series.
