Let’s be honest: Your drink preference can say a lot about your personality — whether or not you’d like to admit it. Below are some book recommendations based on your go-to drink. Hopefully, you get a chuckle out of the descriptions, but you’ll definitely walk away with a longer TBR (to-be-read) list.  

The Margarita

This deliriously decadent drink lets everyone know that…

  • You are always looking for an excuse to celebrate something… but please don’t invite us to your pet’s half-birthday next year.
  • You think you’re tough, but when a stranger asks how you’re doing, you provide a 30-minute monologue on your life story in the hopes that you get a free therapy session from the listener.
  • You’re incredibly loyal to the ones you love.

If your go-to, like mine, is a margarita, you should check out the following books: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? And Other Concerns by Mindy Kaling, A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore, and Yinka, Where is your Huzband? by Lizzie Damilola Blackburn.

The Iced Vanilla Latte

If this is your coffee run order, then…

  • You humble brag about how much coffee you drink… but let’s be real, if it doesn’t taste like ice cream, you’re not drinking it.
  • Your list of things to do is ever-growing and never-ending.
  • You’re the most reliable person in your friend group.

Based on this coffee order, your next read should be The Marriage Game by Sara Desai, The Maid by Nita Prose, or The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang.

The Old Fashioned

What this gut-punching beverage says about you…

  • You turn liking whiskey into a personality trait.
  • You’re low-key the life of the party.
  • You’re the friend we all turn to for advice.

If this is your drink of choice, then you should add Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert, Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie to your TBR.

The Peach Tea

This bottom shelf tea tells us…

  • You make sure everyone knows you’re prioritizing your health and well-being… and no, we do not want to join your pyramid scheme.
  • You’re continuously searching for the meaning of something… sometimes that cardinal is just a cardinal, not Great Uncle Charlie swooping by to say hello.
  • You’re the glue that keeps us all together.

If you can’t get enough of your iced teas, then go pick up If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy, The Manningtree Witches by A. K. Blakemore, and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.
