Happy Thanksgiving Book Tag
Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends! I’m so excited for all the FOOOD! Here’s a fun tag that is totally making me more hungry! The tag was started by: Erin and Becca on their BookTube channel and I also saw it on The Sassy Geek. Hope you have a great Thursday no matter what you’re up to!
- Bread- What book is purely fluff, and has no real plot line? I am 100% here for these “palate cleanser” books and the Christmas themed genre seemed to fit. The Trouble with Christmas by Amy Andrews is full of mistletoe and tacky Christmas sweaters and “the Hokiest Christmas Ever play”. Lots of cliches and cheesy setups but it was still a fun book to read.
- Turkey- What book made you want to fall asleep? Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield This book was an epic journey with magical realism and a lyrical style of writing. It also had a dream like quality to it that made me feel like I was moving through a heavy mist. If you’ve read it, you’ll remember several scenes where the characters find themselves “waking up”, groggy and confused.
- Gravy- What book makes the whole series worth reading? I always, always talk about The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simons trilogy! The last book in the series (The Summer Garden) is the conclusion of the most epic love story ever told. Tatiana and Alexander must heal from the horrors of WW2 and find their passion as they begin a new life in America. This one is about life and marriage and it’s a stunning and emotionally intense read.
- Stuffing- What book is stuffed full of action scenes? The Escape Room by Megan Goldin or The Passengers by John Marrs are two recent books that were full of tension and action.
- Mashed Potatoes- What book looked good, and then wasn’t? The Friends We Keep by Jane Green was a disappointing read. So many cliches and shallow, selfish characters. (Note: I resent that mashed potatoes is being compared to something unsatisfying!)
- Cranberries- What book has the sweetest romance? Stella and Michael from The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. I finally read this book and it was worthy of all the hype! I thought this was a sweet, sensual and tender romance with a healthy helping of steam!
- Corn- What’s the corniest book you’ve ever read? Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey. I really enjoyed this sweet romance, even with all the cheesy rom-com references! The writing was fun and conversational. “I guess if we’re talking about my anxiety, the even truthier truth is it started way before that.”
- Green beans- What book is too long and needs to be shortened? After by Anna Todd. This book comes in at 582 pages! There’s no doubt of the chemistry between Tessa and Hardin – I’m just wondering if it needed to be quite sooo many pages of obsession and addiction and sex?
- Pumpkin Pie- What book do you read to get out of a reading slump? Any of the Harry Bosch books or an old favorite like Pillars of the Earth or A Tree Grows in Brooklyn or Ghost in the Wires.
- Dog/Cat- What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food that you would steal from the table? I love stuffing and my mom’s corn casserole!
