Easter themed book matches

Let's get a little silly for a moment, shall we? If you could match the last 5 books you read to an Easter Egg/ chocolate product, what would you choose, and why?

Think of it like matching your wine to your meal... but, you know, stupider ;)

If you give it a go tweet me or use the hashtag #EasterBookMatch - I would love to see what you choose! (And mentally note how many of you have far too much time on your hands haha)

Here's my list:

Theo: A Novella

Well this had creepy kids and a Vicar in it, so it would have to be matched with something child-themed with a "true-meaning-of-Easter" edge... How about this:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower

An indulgence for the lonely souls in the audience - Big enough to share, but you don't have to feel guilty that you wont!

The Seance

Set in the Victorian era, this atmospheric mystery can only be paired to one thing. A chocolate institution from the time period, Cadbury's:

The Man in the Picture

The picture of significance in this sinister tale depicted a dark Venetian scene, so Italian dark chocolate can be it's only partner:

The Reapers are the Angels

I actually think this book was far too beautiful to be lowered to the ridiculousness of this post, but hey ho! Zombies and violence litter the pages, and so any food you eat may not stay there for long - let's instead pair this to a luxurious hot chocolate drink with a kick of chilli. Seems fitting for a book of beautiful prose with a smattering of bloodlust.

So, go on, you know you want to! Give it a go and share your results :)
