Thanksgiving Book Tag

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! This Thanksgiving looks very different for me, as I’m sure it does for many of you. For the first time in years, I won’t be spending it with family members. My partner and I are quarantining at home and will be cooking our entire Thanksgiving dinner ourselves–another first for us. ? We are having home made filling balls, mashed potatoes, and baked corn, with vegan turkey for me and chicken (not turkey) for the boyfriend ? We have taken this opportunity to suit our Thanksgiving dinner especially to our own wants, which is pretty exciting, if a little unconventional.

 

Since I will be very busy in the kitchen this Thanksgiving, I thought it was only fitting to fill out a food related Thanksgiving Book Tag!

The Questions

 

1) Friends and Family: A Book with Characters that Feel Like Family

 

Little Women
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Kune

Little Women has always felt like family to me. I also have to mention The House in the Cerulean Sea as well, because I adore the theme of found family.

 

2) Fallen Leaves: A Book that Fell Flat (didn’t meet your expectations)

 

I really hate to say this, but for me, it is The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. 

 

3) Thanksgiving Dinner: A Book You Want to Read Every Year During This Season

 

The Harrowing

Wow, I am sad to say that I do not have a book I read every year during this season.

I did some googling and The Harrowing certainly sounds very interesting–it has to do with a haunting and takes place during Thanksgiving weekend. Not sure I’d want to read it every year though. Has anyone read this novel? Do you recommend it? 

I will say that I consistently get an urge to replay Skyrim every fall–like clockwork, which is definitely not a book, but I thought I’d give it a mention. 

 

4) Turkey: A Book With a Bird in It

The Burning God

I’m currently reading The Burning God, which has a very angry Phoenix god in it. Not sure if that counts though, so I’m also going to mention one of my favorite series, The Winternight series by Katherine Arden. The first novel being the beautiful and magical The Bear and the Nightingale. 

 

5) Ham: A Book that Made Your Eyes Glaze Over (Boring)

Book Review : To Sleep in a Sea of Stars - Blogging with Dragons

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, hands down. I could barely get through enough of the book to write a review.

 

6) Dinner Rolls: A Book that Melted Your Heart and Made You Feel Warm

Dragon Rose
Ella Enchanted

Dragon Rose by Christina Pope. It’s a lovely retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but with a dragon as the beast. I much preferred this version to Naomi Novik’s Uprooted. So if you like Uprooted or Beauty and the Beast retellings or dragons, definitely read it. I hope to reread and review it as well as read some of the author’s other works.

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine (the movie does not do this book justice and I will never stop feeling betrayed by this egregious injustice)

 

7) Mashed Potatoes: A Book With a White Cover

Mask of Shadows
Fool's Quest

Looking at my shelves I only have two books with white covers, oddly enough. They are a

 A Mask of Shadows and A Fool’s Quest by Robin Hobb.

 

8) Gravy: A Book You’re not Totally Sure Why You Love, but You Do

 

Book Review : The Guinevere Deception - Blogging with Dragons
Book Review : The Camelot Betrayal - Blogging with Dragons

I have to say The Camelot Rising series, with The Guinevere Deception and The Camelot BetrayalI know the writing in this trilogy, at least so far, is not the best but I really love the books for some reason anyways.

 

9) Pumpkin Pie: A Dessert Book That You Love

 

Bridget Jones's DIary

It’s been a really long time since I’ve read it, but Bridget Jones’s Diary. It makes me howl with laughter. I also love to watch that movie for Christmas like every year, don’t ask me why ?

 

Bonus: Black Friday: The Top 5 Books on Your “I want to buy them” List

 

Ooh, it’s so hard to limit it to just five books that I want to buy. (Yes, I have a problem.)

crown of feathers
  •   Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson 
  •   Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston
  •   The Bone Shard Daughter  by Andrea Stewart (I’d love a hardcover for my collection)
  •   Witchshadow by Susan Dennard (yes, I know it’s not out yet, but I want it)
  •   Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

  1. Great answers! I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t love Addie LaRue. I enjoyed it, but I could see how people could dislike it! The characters in Little Women totally feel like family, and I’m glad you’re enjoying the Camelot Rising trilogy! Thanks for sharing! Happy thanksgiving!!?

    • Thank you! I loved your tag! It was so much fun and perfect for the holiday. I will look for more of your tags in the future ? gosh, I loved parts of Addie LaRue, but it ended up feeling like a missed opportunity to me. Very magical book though for sure!
