the waffle book tag

waffles are waffley delicious. (i’m a pun queen. ♛)

i haven’t always liked waffles. however, that changed when i visited their place of origin – belgium. there’s a two-storey waffle place near the hotel we were staying at, and my parents wanted to go there for breakfast, so we sat down and ordered some waffles with toppings of our own choice. i ended up enjoying my waffle so much, i insisted that we went back the very next day!

so i was overjoyed when jenna @ bookmark your thoughts nominated me to do the waffle book tag! thank you so much, jenna ❤ the waffle book tag is the original creation of kat @ novels & waffles, and here are the rules, taken from her blog:

book review & mood board – red, white & royal blue by casey mcquiston

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey Mcquiston


★★★★★

What happens when America’s First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?
When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.
Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through?
Casey McQuiston’s Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn’t always diplomatic.
