Warning: This book tag might make you hungry.
Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine whereby food is served in small (tapas-like) portions and is common during yum cha (which literally means: drinking tea). This tag is inspired by good company and good eats.
I was tagged by the awesome Raquel @ Rakioddbooks during the late hours of my day. I happened to be awake and browsing WordPress when I noticed the tag. Haha. I dug my own hungry grave at that point. I’m going to grab a snack while I work on this booktag. -nibbles on some cheese- Alright, it’s time to start!
- Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site
- Devour dim sum and answer the tag questions
- Tag five others to join your round table for some dim sum fun

TEA: A BOOK THAT STARTED OFF HOT BUT TURNED COLD QUICKLY
I’m going to say The Leveller, Confessions of a Hater, and Nexis. Nexis started off hot for like a few pages before I got annoyed at it. I continued reading through Nexis until reaching the middle and realizing this was very pointless. I skimmed to the late end, and the story finally picked up.
CHIU CHOW DUMPLING: A BOOK THAT FEATURES ELEMENTS OF LAND AND SEA
HA! Words of Radiance! I’m still not done this book, but I read enough of it to know that it has elements of both.
RICE NOODLE ROLL: A FAVOURITE MULTI-LAYERED CHARACTER OF YOURS (EG. TRAITS? SKILLS? MORALLY AMBIGUOUS?)
Hmm. Multi-layered. I would say Valek from Poison Study is pretty multi-layered. Him and the Commander.
SHRIMP DUMPLING: A BOOK WITH A TRANSPARENT BLURB THAT GIVES THE STORY AWAY
Not sure about this one. I even checked my bookshelves to see if I find a book that fulfilled this, couldn’t find anything.
STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS: A BOOK THAT IS FLUFFY ON THE OUTSIDE BUT PACKS A PUNCH OF FLAVOUR (EG. MESSAGE? DEPTH? CONTROVERSY?)
I got nothing for this one too. D:
CHICKEN FEET: A BOOK WITH DIVIDED OPINIONS
LOTUS-WRAPPED STICKY RICE: A BOOK YOU’VE RECEIVED/GIVEN THAT WAS NICELY PACKAGED
Hmm I would say the giveaway prize I got from Kelsy @ BooknerdKels was one of the more nicely packaged book gifts. Also it’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve received any books from anyone. They’re too creative with their gifts. -puffs-
EGG CUSTARD TART: A BOOK THAT USES SIMPLE INGREDIENTS AND CLICHES BUT EXECUTES IT PERFECTLY
I don’t think I remember a book like this. Sorry ><”
MANGO PUDDING WITH EVAPORATED MILK: ANY BOOK RECOMMENDATION + BEVERAGE/SNACK THAT’S A WINNING COMBINATION
White Oleander and a glass of alcohol because trust me, if you’re reading that novel you’ll need it. It’s very dark and messed up, but it’s amazing.
FRIED SESAME BALLS: A BOOK COVER WITH EMBOSSED TEXT/DESIGN YOU JUST LOVE TO RUN YOUR FINGERS OVER
The Way of Kings – Brandon Sanderson. That tome of a novel made it so that I spent many hours running my fingers up and down the covers as I read through the novel.
DIM SUM STEAM CART: THE TYPE OF CARRYING BAG YOU USE TO BRING BOOKS AROUND
My very very sad backpack. The bottom is giving out on it. It’s been like that for a year now, but it’s finally showing so much tear at the bottom that I fear for its life. I’m quietly hoping that the bag will last me a few more weeks, while I hunt down another backpack.
And you! Yup, if you’re reading this and you definitely wanna do this tag go ahead. If you feel like it, you can leave a link to your post down below and I’ll read it to see what you think. It’s fun reading up answers from other people. :D
Thanks for reading! Thanks again to Raquel for tagging me in a deliciously awesome tag. It was fun! Hope you guys had fun reading my answers. Have you read any of the novels I mentioned? What did you think of them?
