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.
Here are some rules to devour this tag:
- 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
- Food coma
(Also if I’ve tagged you to do this one, please link back to Joey and Jenna so they can make a list of everyone who has done this delicious tag!)
Tea: A book that started off hot but quickly turned cold
I liked the first chapter and I was ready to be sucked into an amazing book but sadly that did not happen
Chiu Chow Dumpling: A book that features elements of land and sea
Definitely this book!
Rice Noodle Roll: A favorite multilayered character you’ve read (i.e. traits? skills? morally ambiguous?)
Kaz and basically the entire gang
Shrimp Dumpling: A book with a transparent blurb that gives the story away
I was so confused as to why the blurb told the reader that Magnus dies. I mean, yes it happens fairly early on, and yes the story still obviously continues but why? It would have been a good shock and gasp moment to read about in the book with no knowledge beforehand.
Steamed BBQ Pork Buns: A book that is fluffy on the outside but packs a punch of flavor (e.g. message? depth? controversy?)
Do not be fooled by the girl in a dress! There is actually a lot of politics and government in this trilogy which I found myself enjoying a lot more than I thought I would!
Chicken Feet: A book with divided opinions
Woah there are a lot, but I don’t talk about this book nearly enough on my blog, so let’s go with The Selection Series by Kiera Cass. You either love it or you hate it basically.
Lotus-Wrapped Sticky Rice: A book you’ve received/given that was nicely packaged
I recently got two amazing box sets from my best friend for the holidays’s and the package was so heavy and I squealed so hard!
Egg Custard Tart: A book that uses simple ingredients and clichés but executes it perfectly
I don’t know how this trilogy does it, but even with having the most generic love triangle in the world, it’s still awesome!
Mango Pudding with Evaporated Milk: Any book recommendation + beverage/snack that’s a winning combination
Can I cheat a little and say Winter by Marissa Meyer and a red apple!?
Fried Sesame Balls: A book cover with embossed text/design you just love to run your fingers over
November 9 by Colleen Hoover! Those pages are raised and if I were to do the blindfolded book challenge and receive this book, I would guess it right away!
Dim Sum Steam Cart: The type of carrying bag you use to bring books around (take a picture!)
The blue bag is the one I drag everywhere with me. It has a permanent spot for a bottle of water and my tae kwon do belt, because god forbid if I forget my belt one day, the master will kill me.
And the purple backpack is my school bag, so I always have a book in there, (along with my various folders and binders)

And that is all! I realize that I got tagged in November to do this, so oops, there are just soooo many awesome tags out there 😉
Also I am being a tad rebellious by posting this during my creative writing class because we’re in the computer lab but the assignment isn’t due until tomorrow end of the period so I figured that I’d procrastinate and either finish it at home or tomorrow. (Oh no, already breaking them New Years Resolutions)
