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 (each fruit corresponds to a book!) & add pictures plus why you thought that particular book deserves that particular fruit if possible.
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 but it would be nice if you nominated a minimum of 5!
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.)
To All the boys I’ve loved before by Jenny Han. It was really sweet for most part and the characters too.
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…)
I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson. It just seems like a beach book. You can read it while soaking up the sun.
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?
Black Iris by Leah Raeder. I just didn’t think it would be the type of book I’d enjoy. I was so wrong. I ended up staying awake all night reading this and this book was on my mind for days.
4. Orange – What’s the juiciest book you’ve read? (e.g. A book with tons of action, romance… etc.)
Steel and stone series by Annette Marie This book is fast-paced. The story is good, characters are amazing and lots of action and romance.
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!)
Naomi and Ely’s No kiss list by Rachel Cohn. Ugh I didn’t feel like there was much to this book. Didn’t enjoy it.
6. Dragonfruit – What’s the most unique book you’ve read? (e.g. Unique in writing style, characters, plot… etc.)
Made you up by Francesca Zappia. I was enjoying this book so much (I dove in without reading the summary). Ended up being shocked and surprised. The characters, writing style.. It really was unique.
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.)
Some girls are by Courtney Summers. Bullying is something I stand against amd the way it was portrayed in this book just left me feeling sour. It is a really good book though.
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!)
I’ve read two of her books and love them both so much. She really is a fantastic author.
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.)
If you stay by Courtney Cole was a typical Romance book.
Bad boy/Player with a terrible past, Good girl looking for a stable relationship. Paths collide and boom. Everlasting love. 😂😂 Even though the book was totally cliché, I still enjoyed reading it.
10. Blueberries – Name a book that made you feel blue. (Any sad, depressing books that you’ve read?)
All the rage by Courtney Summers
What is it about thos Author and depressing books. They always leave me feeling sad. Just loke this one did. Sad and angry.
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?)
Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
I just HATED her character.
12. Limes – Name a funny book that you’ve read because limes add flavour and so does humour with every book.
Satan loves you by Grady Hendrix. It was hilarious. And a unique plot as well.
Part B: (create your own)
Cherries : A spin-off or Novella that was the cherry – on – top (in a series you like)
The Assassin’s blade by Sarah J Mass. I was thinking about writing The Stars Above by Marissa Meyer but Assassin’s blade is pretty hard to beat.
Part C: (smoothie!)
Orange – Pineapple – Lemon smoothie (Juicy and bitter)
