Gobble, gobble! 🦃 Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the United States (and anywhere else you may be celebrating)! I’ve been wanting to do another book tag and thought a holiday themed tag would be fun. So, I scoured the inter-webs to find one. Luckily, Anna’s Book Nook created one a few years ago.
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Give credit to the author (Annasbooknook)
- Answer the prompts
- Tag others if you desire!
1) Friends and Family: A Book with Characters that Feel Like Family
I don’t know what it was about the Green Bone Saga, but I fell in love with the Kaul family almost immediately. I laughed and cried so much as their family went through its ups and downs, and it felt as if I was a part of their family experiencing everything alongside them.
2) Fallen Leaves: A Book that Fell Flat (didn’t meet your expectations)
I had really high hopes for this duology, but it just did not work for me. It had so much potential, but the annoying protagonist coupled with the focus on the love triangle just squandered it. Don’t get me started on the ending. It was awful. Needless to say, these definitely fell flat.
3) Thanksgiving Dinner: A Book You Want to Read Every Year During This Season
I don’t really do a ton of re-reading and have no books that I read every year during this season. However, these three books are at the top of my re-read TBR right now. One day I’ll get back to them again…
4) Turkey: A Book With a Bird in It
This book had a parrot and its cage at the center of a bunch of mayhem on a boat. There was also murder, mystery, magic, and lots of sapphic goodness. 🙂
5) Ham: A Book that Made Your Eyes Glaze Over (Boring)
I don’t often DNF books, but I could not make it through this one. The writing was tedious and confusing to read, and I didn’t find the characters interesting at all.
6) Dinner Rolls: A Book that Melted Your Heart and Made You Feel Warm
This YA romcom was so sweet it completely melted my heart. I loved its focus on queer joy and just had a wonderful time reading the types of interactions I wish I had when I was a teen.
7) Mashed Potatoes: A Book With a White Cover
These are two of my fantasy faves from this year so far. Both of them were thrilling adventures and should be on the TBR of every fantasy fan.
8) Gravy: A Book You’re not Totally Sure Why You Love, but You Do
This short book was SO weird, and I didn’t have a clue what was going on for a significant portion of the story. lol. The weirdness gave it a charm that I cannot really put into words, though, and it ended up being a 5-star read for me.
9) Pumpkin Pie: A Dessert Book That You Love
I’d not heard of the term ‘dessert book’ before this tag. I’m taking it to mean a sickeningly sweet book, and I can think of no better book than The House in the Cerulean Sea. I adore this book so much and love its genuine found family vibes.
Bonus: Black Friday: The Top 5 Books on Your “I want to buy them” List
I’m about to shock all of you with my answer to this one. At the moment, I don’t have any books on my ‘want to buy them’ list. Why? I’ve already bought them. lol. I’m very impulsive and buy whatever books I want to read mostly on a whim. I also utilize the library a lot and ARCs, of course. Will this keep me from perusing Black Friday sales. Nope. 😂 But at least I won’t be going in with a list. Although, maybe that’s even worse…
Anyone who wants to participate. I recognize that today is Thanksgiving. So, if you’re bored, feel free to have some fun and consider yourself tagged. Otherwise, bookmark it until next year!
