The Wine Book Tag


Wine: The drink of choice on my ski trip last weekend. Sadly, I didn’t partake in the wine or skiing. Don’t get me wrong, a good wine every once in a while is fun. (I usually go for a white because they’re sweet.) I’m just not much of a drinker and I probably wouldn’t choose wine as my drink of choice. But I can’t not do a fun book tag, so I’ll roll with the wine.

A big thanks to Jesse @ Books at Dawn for tagging me! Be sure to check out his blog. It’s one of my favorites to read.

Now, to get wasted! (Not really, but it sounds fun.)

Box Wine – a book people will judge you for liking but you like it anyway!


Twlight by Stephenie Meyer

Do I even need to explain this one? The writing makes some English majors cringe. (I can confirm this. My best friend was one and actually did.) Other people are annoyed by Bella’s personality. Etc, etc. I don’t care. I loved it.

Organic Wine – a book that doesn’t have any added crap in it and is just written perfectly.


That Girl, Darcy by James Ramos

It may be Ramos’ first novel, but the writing was excellent. I loved the characters and everything about this book.



Gluehwein – a really spicy, wintery read.


The Score by Elle Kennedy

It has hockey. That’s “wintery” right? It’s definitely got a spicy romance!


Sauvignon Blanc – a really sharp and aggressive read that you couldn’t put down.


Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher

I can’t even explain how this book made me feel. The writing was so aggressive and the story was sharp. I’m still thinking about it and I read it almost a year ago.

Pinot Noir – a book you didn’t expect much from but ended up getting blown away.


Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn

First, the cover. It’s not exactly eye catching. Second, the synopsis. Why would I want to read about a 15-year-old girl being abducted by a motorcycle gang? I am so happy it was recommended to me. The entire series is mind blowing with twists and turns at every corner.


Chardonnay – a good summer read that was super zesty.


Calendar Girl series by Audrey Carlan

This entire series was a fun summery read. It was also super “zesty”. Defintely for mature audiences only!


Rose – a book that has a little bit of everything in it.

23437156 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

This book really does have a little bit of everything in it. There’s mystery, suspense, crime, romance, intensity… I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but you get the picture.

Shiraz – a full-bodied book that is dark and juicy.


Amber to Ashes by Gail McHugh

This subject matter is dark. The love triangle is juicy. It was like a train wreck. It was gritty and disturbing, but I couldn’t take my eyes away from it.


Merlot – a smooth, easy read with a soft finish.


Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

This YA contemporary romance is a feel good story that will leave you smiling.



Champagne – your favorite book.

22669832 Bright Side by Kim Holden

Since I already used Nine Minutes, I’ll pick my other favorite book. I loved Bright Side so much. I want everyone to read it.

Hey now. What happened to the Riesling? That would be my wine of choice. Sadly, it’s not on the list. Nor is a Port. I guess the desert wines are left out?

Now it’s my turn to tag! I feel the need to try to tag people I think are over the legal drinking age, since it’s alcohol related. I think it’s the mom in me.

  1. Haha! I’m with you on this. I’m not much of a drinker either and wine would not be my first choice to drink when I do. But it looks fun! I already know that we share the first one in common! I loved Twilight and I don’t care what people say about it lol. Thanks for the tag!

  3. I love this tag! I love wine! I’m somewhere in-between you and pretentious wine drinkers who can detect notes of dirt or whatever. πŸ˜‰ We just went for a weekend to Leavenworth and went to a wine-tasting and most of them were SO BAD but we did get a bottle of the gluhwein, it’s like Christmas in a bottle. Seriously.
