Thursday Tea: May 7

Thursday Tea Thursday Tea is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly. To play along, all you need is some tea, a book, and the will to answer some very simple questions: what tea are you drinking (and do you like it)? What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not the two go together.

Just a quickie tea today, as I have to get back to writing my paper that’s due TOMORROW oh god

The tea: I ended up drinking the last of my Acai Berry tea, but I’ve ordered some more, so it’s alright! Recap:

Stash says

Fruity blend combines tart hibiscus with natural acai berry, blackberry, and blackcurrant flavors.

The book: I started reading the third Spetimus Heap book last night, Physik, and I’m by turns bored and thrilled. It’s kind of tiring.

Here’s a summary:
Physik

When Silas Heap unSeals a forgotten room in the Palace, he releases the ghost of a Queen who lived five hundred years earlier. Queen Etheldredda is as awful in death as she was in life, and she’s still up to no good. Her diabolical plan to give herself everlasting life requires Jenna’s compliance, Septimus’s disappearance, and the talents of her son, Marcellus Pye, a famous Alchemist and Physician. And if Queen Etheldredda’s plot involves Jenna and Septimus, then it will surely involve Nicko, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, Beetle, Stanley, Sarah, Silas, Spit Fyre, Aunt Zelda, and all of the other wacky, wonderful characters that made magyk and flyte so memorable.

Do they go together? Kinda! The Acai Berry isn’t bad with Physik, but I think I need something a little more perky to wake me up when I’m reading it.

What are you drinking/reading this Thursday?

  1. I’ve joined in on this meme, if that’s okay. My post is here:
    Thursday Tea

    I haven’t read any of the Septimus Heap books–although I’m a huge young-adult lit fan so I may have to pick them up.

  2. My kids and I have really enjoyed this series but the later books do get slow in spots, don’t they? I like this meme, I’ll try to remember to come back and participate next Thursday!
