Say hello to me craving pancakes throughout this entire post. You’re welcome.
I really hope I don’t get you too hungry…. but if you have pancakes PLEASE SHARE. Or books. Share good books too.
Today, you lucky people (if you count reading my random recs as lucky) get both. Becky’s Pancake Book Tag is one I seem to always find floating around, and today I’ve finally decided to take a crack at it. (Not cracking eggs though. Or puns…. on second thoughts I can’t always help myself.)
Enjoy! I’ve loved reading so many of these posts, and to finally make my own was interesting 💖 Also, all the fanart included has a link below to where I found it, and the book covers are (as always) from Goodreads 😉
Ooh, I’d have to say one of my most recent reads, Summer Bird Blue! The descriptions of Hawaii and all the characters were so immersive to read, and the prose? Magical. The entire book may as well have been told in verse, that’s how beautiful it was.

Oh I really want to say Kaz Brekker. But I have him for a later question, so oh well. Let me think……
Ahah! For this one I’ll be going for Nikolai Lantsov from King of Scars. He is… witty as h e c k. I love him to death, and all his sass I just adore.
He can get mad… but I’d say this character more pertains to the ‘wit’ part of the question.

Okay, this one for me is the Raven Cycle. Or the Creekwood books.
I love them all!! Simon Vs and Offbeat are both contemporary fluff and I love them to death and then my Raven Boys are everything.
I also think Six of Crows?? I love the (once again) banter and friendships, and it’s possibly my favorite book of all time??
I always slump so bad after books that take me a long time to read. The other day I was reading a book (started it in June, actually) and I only finished it around a week later. I didn’t read for two days (shocking I know, but one of those days a friend stayed for 9 hours. I am not kidding. Then after a 45 minute phone call I was too exhausted to do anything except eat and watch Gilmore Girls)
And quite recently I’ve been slumping after Hot Dog Girl. It was my little bit of pride continued at the start of July and later that week I read 3 half books before giving up. Holidays kinda suck because you convince yourself ‘you’ve got more time to read!!!’ and then you end up having more time to do nothing, procrastinate, and become unproductive. 🤦♀️ me being unproductive and procrastinating doing something I love is such a mood
This question is making me cry and I haven’t even typed out the book title.
Also I couldn’t choose what fanart to put in so I did two BECAUSE I LOVE THIS SCENE SO MUCH

Here’s where Kaz Brekker comes in.
He has wit, and I won’t sugar coat it, he is cruel. If you’re on his bad side, prepare to die. my name is inigo montoya you killed my father prepare to die.

I don’t really know what to say for this one?? As in, thought about for a full MINUTE and then began to scroll/read all my little comments I’ve made on books throughout the past few months.
And came up with this.
OH MY GOSH THE TWISTSSSSSS
that’s all, but it was amazing, possibly my favourite so far???
I was very enthusiastic.
I would ALSO like to point out that, uh, Carry On has some of the biggest twists I’d ever seen. AND I guessed precisely one. 💖💖 I love that book with all my heart though! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Let me rant here: I was never really on board with I Believe In A Thing Called Love’s romance, between Luca and Desi.
I’m still not on that ship.
I HATE PEANUT BUTTER TOO BECKY DONT WORRY
I couldn’t stand most of the cast from Tash Hearts Tolstoy. I absolutely hate Pekka Rollins (let’s be real, who doesn’t??). And if you ever said you liked Lehrer, I will happily hunt you down to change your mind.
But Pekka and Lehrer are meant to be villains. And I had quite a few issues with T❤️T (most certainly not the representation or the fact it featured an aromantic though! Just making myself clear 😉).
Forever (And I have to steal Liv’s answer for this) Radio Silence.
Also isn’t that fanart of the crew at Pride the cutest thing ever!!!!!! Alice Oseman, in addition to being a writer, is an amazing artist, and the webcomic Heartstopper (I even put in a link to the whole comic, for FREE.) has the most amazing art.
