BOOK BLOGGER HOP: Candy Corn, chocolate or popcorn – which is your favourite to eat while reading?

Book Blogger Hop: Halloween Edition!

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly feature hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, to find bookish blogs and to learn more about the bloggers themselves. You can find more info on the feature here.

This week’s question is: Candy Corn, a chocolate bar, or Popcorn. Which of these snacks are your favourite to eat while reading?

I’ve never had Candy Corn so I can disregard that right now. It’s one of those American foods that I’ve not tried and while in some UK supermarkets there’s a small “American food” section that has stuff like Hershey bars and pop tarts in it, I haven’t ever seen Candy Corn there. I find popcorn can leave you with greasy fingers and obviously I don’t want to get food marks on my books, and to be honest I only really eat popcorn at the cinema, I very rarely have it at home. So, my favourite is a chocolate bar. Chocolate is my favourite snack to eat while reading because you don’t get your fingers dirty because you hold the wrapper, it’s the best.

So this is something that a lot of bloggers/vloggers do a lot and I thought I’d give it a go. I can’t quite believe that the first month of 2015 has already come to an end! Where does the time go?!

Herman Ze German
One day this month I was working in Soho at a press junket and I had a very short lunch so I went out to find food. I was looking for a Costa or some other coffee shop but then I stumbled across Herman Ze German. I’d seen a couple of people I follow on Twitter tweet about it so thought I’d give it a go – it was so good. I had a Bockwurst in a bun and if I could have sat in the restaurant I’d totally would have had their chips too because they looked great. If you’re in London you should totally check the place out – the staff are super lovely too.

Enemy
This was a crazy film but I was sucked into and riveted by Jake Gyllennhaal’s performance as two guys who look exactly the same. Enemy is a strange yet captivating movie that definitely needs to be seen more than once to fully grasp what’s going on. I’d recommend you watch it though be prepared to be left a bit confused. It’s brilliant to watch a film that makes you think and is quieter and a lot different to typical Hollywood films.
