Which #GIRLPOWER Contemporary YA Book Should You Read According To Your Ice Cream Preferences? | I Know That You Know That You Want to Know This

I love classifying readers according to their ice cream preferences.* Deeply philosophical stuff, really. It tells you so much about them.*

HELP ME I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO POST HELP I thought this was such an incredibly ingenious idea; it’s not like this quiz hasn’t done 1049290 times before. HELP ME I’M STUCK IN THE WORST BLOGGING SLUMP EVER I’m just blown away by my own creativity. HELPPP

Basically: Just click on each of the yummy ice cream pics to find out which YA book you match to!! Be sure to have a pint of Ben and Jerry’s near you on standby, because this may or may not result in intense ice cream craving episodes.

so, what’s your favorite ice cream flavor?? Do you spell it flavor or flavour??  Did you read the book you got matched with? MOST IMPORTANTLY: Have you ever tried boba before, BECAUSE YOU SHOULD??

  1. It’s funny because I don’t really like ice cream or boba. I much prefer frozen custard or gelato or a sorbet if I’m going to eat something frozen. (Which I rarely do.) But, I picked mint ice cream. The book sounds interesting but not one I’ll likely read since I don’t read about rape unless it’s a side plot.

    Really unique post, Hannah!

    • yayyy, thank you!! My mission in life is officially accomplished. ❤ I'm in a constant state of craving ice cream, so I can relate.

      oooo you should definitely check it out!! YES IT IS A SIGN. The book has officially deemed you as its own. it's a super fun book, and the protagonist is a major badass. a very violent badass.

  7. Where is the cookies and cream FLAVOR? I picked Strawberry as a back up and the book sounded pretty interesting.
    This was a really cool idea so I wouldn’t worry about being in a blogging slump. If you are worried about it, you should just go read something to review. 😛

    • OH NO *hides* I can’t believe I forgot cookies and cream!!! pls forgive me

      and oooh, that book is so absolutely delightful!! I would totally recommend it!! and ugh, blogging slumps are the worst. but nothing’s more horrible than being stuck in a blogging slump AND reading slump at the same time. :’)

  8. I really love this post! Well done! Now, you’re missing all my favorite flavors (yup, I don’t use a U. American all the way) such as salted caramel, peanut butter cup, or rocky road– but I’ll forgive you this one time. I picked Coffee and, surprisingly enough, I have read Malala’s biography already! I love this book. In fact, I listened to the audiobook and I would highly recommend it. It’s brilliant.

    And yes, I have tried boba before! I haven’t had it in years since I moved to Wisconsin. I’m sure there is a boba place somewhere– but nowhere convenient! I’ll have to hunt one down. For you. What’s you favorite boba flavor?

    • Yay, thank you! ❤ and I can't believe I forgot salted caramel??? OR PEANUT BUTTER, FOR THAT MATTER?? *glances at blog title* *sighs* Dx I am disappointed in myself. and SAME, I'm 100% 'Murican but I find the other spelling of flavor as "flavour" super cool except autocorrect constantly marks it as incorrect. :')

      and yes, her book was so incredibly inspirational!! I have yet to try my first audiobook, but I'll keep that recommendation in mind. 😉

      AND DFSDLFJ ISN'T BOBA THE BEST THING EVER?? where I live, there's at LEAST one boba place every two blocks. it's like boba paradise. and oooooh, that quesiton's hard, but lately I've been getting milk tea with extra boba XD

      • I’m glad you’ve seen the error of your ways in neglecting peanut butter ice cream. 😉 But yes, I spell a lot of things the British way, like theatre or centre or cheque— but I still have an American spell-checker on my computer because I work in corporate America. O_o I don’t know what it is about the other spellings which appeal to be, but they do.

        Let me know if you ever want a list of audiobook recommendations! I can do that! 😀

        I think my favorite boba has been taro balls in milk tea, but I also like traditional tapioca with foam red tea. #BobaSnob — It’s a shame there isn’t a boba cafe somewhere near me! Now I’m craving it; I had best head downtown and get some.

  9. I’m definitely into speaking out against slut shaming! Although frankly my ice cream preference changes all the time, so I probably would like a lot of these books!

    Also this feature was really cool? Do you do these click-throughs often and I’m just daft and have missed them all?

    And I have never heard of boba; on the other hand, I live in the woods, so I miss a lot of stuff. I know I could Google this, but conversation is more fun: what’s it like?

    • oh god, slut-shaming in books makes my blood boil with volcano-lava-rage. GAHH, it’s 2017, why is this still happening??

      and HAHA, I’m glad to hear that! ❤ It's my first time doing something like this (because I ran out of good ideas, #woops), but this was actually a super fun post!! and not just because I got to talk extensively about ice cream!!

      OH MY GOODNESS, YOU'VE NEVER TRIED BOBA?????!!!! you MUST TRY IT IMMEDIATELY AHH. I'm still petitioning to have it be considered as one of the seven wonders of the world. I don't really know how that would work, but…. STILL. anyways, they're basically TINY CHEWY BUNDLES OF PURE AMAZINGNESS in the form of ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS TAPIOCA BALLS. it's like a party in your mouth. they're sweet, and sometimes drenched in honey, and just SO SO YUMMY. you can have them in basically any drink, but it works best in tea, slushes, and smoothies!! did I mention that BOBA IS THE BEST??

  10. This is such a clever little post! Since I’m a fan of all these flavors, I guess I’ll just have to read all the books haha. All of them seem like tough but interesting reads. I guess because I usually end up ordering mint chip more often than the other flavors, I suppose I’ll bump up Some Boys on my list. Sounds like a gut-wrenching read but worth it in the end. Thanks for all the recommendations! 😀

  11. This is a great post idea! I’m a vanilla ice cream girl, as in if I’m eating ice cream I will eat no other flavors [flavors with an O that is, not OU, what are you someone who isn’t American? (:D I realize we’re like the only country who spells it with an O, we think we’re special. Unless I’m wrong? Who else doesn’t add an U?)]. And no I haven’t read “Exit, Pursued by a Bear” though the title is intriguing indeed, I might have to check it out just for that. I have tried and disliked boba, my taste buds aren’t refined enough 🙂 .

  12. GEE THANKS HANNAH NOW I’M CRAVING ICE CREAM (pff no of course I don’t *always* crave ice cream what are you talking about) Ice creaaaaaammm (idk what I did there) is the best. Books are the best. Ergo this post is the best!! ❤ 😉 I'm going to be a clever bean and say I love ALL the ice cream flavours and so all of these contemporary books are for me obviously. (Wait now my TBR grew even larger what have I done) (I have to say I haven't tried all these flavours before though BUT I KNOW I LOVE THEM OKAY.)
    Lovely post, Hannah! I will definitely check out these books (and icecreaaaammm). ❤
