The Dim Sum Book Tag

Thank you so much Raven @ Dreamy Addictions for tagging me to do this fun tag! 🙂

The Dim Sum Book Tag is the brainchild of Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts and Jenna @ Reading With Jenna. 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.

The Rules

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  2. Devour dim sum and answer the tag questions.
  3. Tag five others to join your round table for some dim sum fun.
  4. Food coma.


Tea–A book that started off hot but quickly turned cold

For this, I think I’m going to choose The Rose Society by Marie Lu. The writing was great, but as I kept reading the book all I could really think about is: What is Adelina doing?

Chiu Chow Dumpling–A book that features elements of land and sea

Interesting prompt…I’m trying to decide The Ocean at the End of the Lane, The Heroes of Olympus, or Six of Crows? I think I’ll go with The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan because the main characters spend a lot of time traveling on the sea and battling an evil earth goddess.

The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Rice Noodle Roll–A favorite multi-layered character you’ve read (i.e. Traits? Skills? Morally Ambiguous?

My first thought is Aelin, but I already choose her for a lot of answers, so this time I’ll go with Ringer from The 5th Wave. She’s definitely a mysterious character with a murky history, but great shooting skills.

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Shrimp Dumpling–A book with a transparent blurb that gives the story away

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Though the synopsis did not completely spoil the book, I kind of always knew Katniss would survive because there were later books and Katniss was the POV character.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Steamed BBQ Pork Buns–A book that is fluffy on the outside but packs a punch of flavor (e.g. Message? Depth? Controversy?

The Giver by Lois Lowry–there’s no freedom without choice.

Chicken Feet–A book with divided opinions

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I personally liked this book, but on GoodReads there seem to be a variety of opinions.

Lotus-Wrapped Sticky Rice–A book you’ve received/given that was nicely packaged

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie.

Egg Custard Tart–A book that uses simple ingredients and clichés but executes it perfectly

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Although the plot in book 1 was fairly simple and relatively cliché, I still loved the book and Celaena.

Mango Pudding with Evaporated Milk–Any book recommendation + beverage/snack that’s a winning combination 

This may seem like an odd choice, but black pearl tea and Cinder by Marissa Meyer.


Fried Sesame Balls–A book with embossed text/design you just love to run your fingers over

The embossed cover design in gold text of Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson.

Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson

Dim Sum Steam Cart–The type of carrying bag you use to bring books around, take a picture.

As a rule, I almost always have a book on me. But I generally don’t use a bag, I’ll just carry it with me around.

I Tag…

Please don’t feel pressured to do the tag. Feel free to disregard this if you’ve already done the tag. Hope you have fun with the tag! 🙂

  1. I haven’t read Rose Society yet but after hearing mixed reviews about this book has made me concerned whether I should pick this up or not. I totally agree with you on Throne Of Glass and Cinder they are really great books. Anyway, thanks for doing the tag! 😀
