The Burrito Bowl Tag was created by Cristina from Girl in the Pages and Joey from Thoughts and Afterthoughts and I was tagged by Hannah from So Obsessed With… ages ago! Guess it’s time to finally complete this fun tag.
PROTEIN | The Building Block – A book quote to live by
“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen; I love this quote a lot. I feel like it encompasses the feeling of falling in love but also making close friendships. I actually included this on our wedding programs!
My memory is not the best and I tend to read books that are filled with amazing friendship and romance scenes since that’s my jam! Sooooo I’m going to go with The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, which is basically FILLED with memorable and hilarious scenes. But one of my favorites that sort of blends friendship and romance is when Lucy first goes to Josh’s apartment; they’re both clearly attracted to each other but also trying to navigate becoming friends. And instead of rushing anything, Josh gives Lucy a fluffy blanket on the couch, a cup of tea, and watches tv with her while they both relax and coexist. It’s such a turning point for their relationship and it’s SO adorable!!
Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Taylor from Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde. I feel like they would really understand each other, from their struggles with anxiety to their fangirl tendencies. They both LOVE their respective book fandoms so much and as we all know, there’s no easier way to make friends than through a mutual love of books and fandom!
LETTUCE | The Handful of Crispness – A refreshing concept/theme in a book
CHIPS | Le Pièce de Résistance – A must-read rec, if you like…
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller is one of my favorite books ever and an absolute must read for fans of historical fiction, mythology retellings, and achingly beautiful prose.
I’m going with a throwback sequence here: Molly Weasley vs. Bellatrix Lestrange. It’s one of the most charged fight scenes in Deathly Hallows and I loved that it showcased this physically emotional side of Molly that we weren’t privy to before. Plus “Not my daughter, you bitch!” is an iconic line.
I’m tagging anyone who wants to built their own Burrito Book Bowl! What would some of your choices be?
