Bookish Thanksgiving Tag

In case you may not know, today is Thanksgiving in the United States! To all those in the U. S., I hope you are having a wonderful holiday full of amazing food, amazing family time (without any drama *crosses fingers for you*), and all you want! To those not celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you are having a wonderful day as well!

I was debating what I wanted to do for today, and I was having such a struggle. I was thinking of doing books I’m thankful for, but I feel like that would just be my favorites list all over again and the list would be far too long. And if I’m doing characters I’m thankful for, then I would be here for hours trying to narrow it down for such a long time (THERE ARE SO MANY AMAZING ONES). So, I settled on a tag, and this one looked pretty amazing. It was created by fangirlscity, and here is the link for their video on it!

Let’s get on with the Thanksgiving fun!

Bread- What book is purely fluff, and has no real plot line?

all-the-feels

All the Feels by Danika Stone. I had a hard time figuring out the real plot of this story other than fangirling, going to some Dragon Con (which I still can’t figure out if it’s only about dragons???), and her finding love…which didn’t happen until like 30 pages until the book ends. I don’t know. I was confused on the plot.

Turkey- What book made you want to fall asleep?

everything must go

Everything Must Go by Jenny Fran Davis! I was soooooooo bored when I was reading it. It just felt like absolutely nothing was happening and I wasn’t moving forward with any plot, and it was just so mehhhhhhh. I had to DNF it.

Gravy- What book makes the whole series worth reading?

A Court of Mist and Fury! I had a big struggle with the first book in the series with one DNF, and then when I came back to it, I ended up not really enjoying it as most people. However, the second book in the series blewwwwwwwww me away, and I loved it dearly. I didn’t know you could speed through a 500+ page book so fast, but I tried. I would definitely recommend this series just to get to that amazing second book.

Stuffing- What book is stuffed full of action scenes?

A Darker Shade of Magic was the first one that came to mind – especially that ending. It was full of action and intrigue and some major kicking of butt. I was not bored throughout this one.

Mashed Potatoes- What book looked good, and then wasn’t?

Ugh, sadly so many of them. I fall prey to a lot of books that have super pretty covers but fall super flat for me. A recent one was There’s Someone Inside Your House which has this super ridiculously cool cover and was blurbed as Scream meets Anna and The French Kiss?? It sounded like something I needed in my life, but it just went eh.

Cranberries- What book has the sweetest romance?

Um, Cresswell????

Corn- What’s the corniest book you’ve ever read?

romeo and what's her name

Romeo and What’s Her Name was pretty corny, but it was also pretty adorable? It’s always a thin line, and I thought it was pretty good although it was so cliche.

Green beans- What book is too long and needs to be shortened?

Renegades reallllllllly could have been cut down a bit, although I love Meyer dearly and read all those 500+ pages. But, seriously, it did not need to be that long.

Pumpkin Pie- What book do you read to get out of a reading slump?

Ummmmmmmmmm, I’ve yet to figure that out. I should really narrow one down, because I think I’m sliding real on quick into one. Oops.

Dog/Cat- What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food that you would steal from the table?

Okay, I’m SUCH a picky eater, and I, like, barely eat any of the big Thanksgiving food. I don’t like turkey, I don’t like cranberry sauce or gravy, or gravy. So, usually, I’m all there for the bread and maybe some stuffing? And then I have pasta. XD

Happy Thanksgiving to all that are celebrating! What are your plans? What are some of your answers for this? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. I really liked All the Feels. I am a fan of friendship stories and the con was so much fun, I guess I didn’t need much plot. This is the second post I have seen with ACOMAF as the gravy, and I agree. It is the crown jewel of the series. I actually liked Everything Must Go. There are some really interesting ideas discussed in the book. I am a character driven reader, so it worked for me. I have to say, I love a little corn every once in a while, and now I want to read Romeo and What’s Her Name even more (I really liked Petroff’s last book too). Fun tag. Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!

    1. I had some other struggles with the book so I think I might have drowned that out for me. XD Did you read her second book too? and yessssss. I super agree about it! How did you feel about the first and third ones overall? And I think I might have given up on the Everything Must Go too early. I don’t think I was ready for a character driven read at the time. BUT YES. Romeo and What’s Her Name was ADORABLE. Super corny but the best kind of corn? And you, too, Sam, if you’re celebrating. 😀

      1. I did read Internet Famous, and it was super adorable. The romance was so cute. The light and fluffy are among my fave, so Stone’s last two books worked for me.

  2. Hahaha I’m super picky, too I will eat the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, gravy, and rolls though. That’s basically about it but completely agree about There’s Someone Inside Your House because I went in with high expectations and got let down. I’m still a little disappointed because I was hoping it’d be like a YA version of Scream, but it was more of a caricature.

    1. Oooooh, rolls really are the best. Mashed potatoes are quite good too along with the stuffing. So we can at least have a tiny meal. XD And yesssssssss. 100% right about it. 😛 I was so hoping for more with you! 🙂
