Happy #ThirstyThursday my fellow adult YA readers! February is officially over! Did you get all of the books read you wanted to in this short month? I know I didn’t QUITE get there, but I was oh so close, and this week in particular was a great book week for me!
Here’s a peak at all my wine recommendations for the books I’ve read, am reading, or will be reading this week! Read up and drink up!
My Recommendations for What I’ve Read so Far This Week:
The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King
This Zampa Syrah is perhaps the only wine that is beautiful enough to be placed side-by-side with this incredible book cover. It is also a spicy red wine, and spicy is certainly one way to describe Kalinda’s character, as well as those of the many AMAZING women in this book. The label also hints at the dual roles Kalinda will be forced to play in order to survive. Check out my full review here!
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
What better wine to pair with Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall than this Repeat Wine Chardonnay, since Samantha Kingston is forced to live the last day of her life on repeat in this novel (and soon to be movie!). Plus look how PPPRRREETTTYYYY the bottle is! Will be posting a book AND movie review on Sunday! 🙂
Golden by K.M. Robinson
A Goldilocks retelling? Yes, please! So why not sip on this STUNNING Prestige Gold Sparkling Wine while reading it? I’m pairing up with K.M. Robinson on the #SerendipiTEAtour, so we’ll be stepping a little outside of my usual comfort zone and pairing this debut YA novel with tea as well! Stay tuned for more details!
Gardenia by Kelsey Sutton
I recommend pairing this Tic Tok Cabernet Sauvignon with Kelsey Sutton’s new novel Gardenia, in which Ivy can quite literally see a ticking clock over everyone’s head around her, counting down the time until their deaths. Check out my review here!
My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Now:
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
I challenge anyone to find a more perfect wine to pair with Daughter of the Pirate King than this Pirate Treasured red blend! This is probably the best wine/book pairing I’ve found so far, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! ARGH, mateys!
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
Since Red London happens to be my favorite of the Londons in Schwab’s Shades of London series, I’ll be pairing A Conjuring of Light with this Chapel Down English Rose.
My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Next:
The Valiant by Lesley Livingston
How could I possibly pair this Roman-inspired novel with anything other than an Italian wine. This Bartenura Moscato happens to be one of my FAVORITE wines and it also happens to look awesome with this book cover!
Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz
I recommend pairing this lovely Destiny Ruby, Pink Moscato with Something in Between, which is all about feeling like you’ve lost control of your own destiny and doing everything you can to take it back.
I hope you’re all having an amazing book week!
