Getting lost in a book is escapism at it's finest and it's what everyone who contributes here thrives on.


Features | YA Book Recs Based on Your Favourite Drink

That's right, today I am going to recommend a YA book to you based only on your favourite drink. Whether that drink is a steaming chai tea latte or an ice cold coke, I've got the book for you. You might think it sounds silly but trust me, there is some real beverage based book science going on here. So without further ado, please pick your favourite drink and let me introduce you to your new favourite book...

Black coffee - The Raven Boys

If you like your coffee dark and strong then Maggie Stiefvater's tale of magic, boarding school boys, and the search for a long dead king is the perfect series for you.

Cappuccino - Just One Day

Gayle Forman's warm and complex story of the one day in Europe that changes the rest of Allyson Healey's life is the perfect accompaniment for a classic cappuccino.

Frappuccino - To All the Boys I've Loved Before

For a sweeter than sweet drink you need a sweeter than sweet book, and it doesn't get much sweeter than Lara-Jean's plan to avoid embarrassment when her love letters accidentally getting sent out.

English breakfast tea - I Capture the Castle

There's no beverage more British than a cup of good old fashioned English breakfast tea and there's little more British than Dodie Smith's classic story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra Mortmain finding her way in her family's crumbling old castle in the English countryside either.

Hot Chocolate - Anna and the French Kiss

Both sweet and comforting, and just the thing to warm the cockles of your heart no matter the time of year. Mix the two together and you can't get a more cozy evening.

Chai tea latte - Born Confused

A beautiful blend of Indian and American culture, a Starbucks chai tea latte is warming, delicious, and a little sweet, and so is the story of Dimple Lala finding her place in the world.

Iced tea - Wing Jones

If the sweet, refreshing taste of a cold iced tea is your choice then I recommend the sweet, refreshing Wing Jones, who might just be your new favourite book character.

Coca Cola/Pepsi - Vivian Versus the Apocalypse

Just looking at that gif is making my mouth water. If you're also craving an ice cold coke then why not accompany it with a story all about a great American apocalypse?

Pumpkin spice latte - Fangirl

This one's easy. There is a drink featured in this book called the 'pumpkin mocha breve' so you can see my reasoning on that one, but I also think that the pumpkin spice latte is a pretty millennial drink and this is a pretty millennial book (meant in the best way).

Peppermint mocha - Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

And of course, if you try and get your hands on this holiday classic all year round then you're going to love this story of two strangers getting to know each other through increasingly elaborate Christmas themed dares.

Now go forth, read your new favourite book, and thank me later.
