20.6 - Seasoned Reader - Emmalita's task: Favorite SEASONings

Since I won the chance to be the task creator for the SEASONed reader and two of my favorite things to do is to read and to cook, my task is based on my favorite SEASONings.

Read a book from ONE of the following options. Required: State which option you chose when you post.

Option 1. When I cook, almost all of my dishes have garlic in them. Garlic is my favorite seasoning. Read a book that has something to do with vampires OR one that has "Horror" as a main page genre. If the book features vampires, this should be obvious from the book's main page description or reviews.

Option 2. I love the smell and taste of cinnamon. It's a great savory and sweet spice. Read a book with a mostly brown (over 50%) colored-cover. Ex:
Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis
Required: Include the cover when you post.

Option 3. I also love to use rosemary in many of dishes. Read a book written by an author whose name is "Rose," "Mary," or "Rosemary." The name may be found in any position (first, middle, or last) but must be shown as part of the author's name on Goodreads.

Optional: When you post, list your favorite seasoning(s).

Thank you in advance!


message 22: by Cindy (new)

Cindy | 178 comments Return of the Bird Tribes by Ken Carey

Would this be ok for option 2? It's difficult to tell from this thumb nail pic, but, my copy's cover seems to be a pen and ink (both brown and black ink) with a dark brown wash over the black ink marks. Really a beautiful illustration.

message 26: by Cait S (new)

Cait S | 779 comments For Option 1, something to do with vampires, is having the genre Vampires enough to confirm it? The description here doesn't explicitly mention them, but the genres do and I know from Book 1 that they play a big role in the series.

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2) by Cassandra Clare


message 27: by Sue (new)

Sue (suetinge) | 1508 comments We're big fans of garlic and cinnamon (among others) as well. I'm looking at Happy Hour by Michele Scott for Option 2 if it's brown enough.

Erin (NY) (erin_p) | 629 comments For brown cover, how about:
