Thanksgiving Book Tag

Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate! I don’t support the history of this holiday, but it gives me a break from school, time to read, and a bunch of good food. I can’t complain. Admittedly, I’m a vegetarian and don’t eat the turkey, but that’s not an important detail. And, as difficult as life can be, I have a lot to be thankful for. It’s cheesy, but it’s true. 🙂

On a different note, this is my second post in November! I’m rocking this blogging thing!

Yeah, not really. But I’m working on it, and if I can get three posts up next month, that’s progress.


I figured the Thanksgiving book tag was appropriate for today, so let’s dive right in!

1. Bread: what book is purely fluff and has no real plot?

tfib

Any Kasie West book would work for this question, to be honest. At least, any of the four I’ve read would. I love her contemporaries and I think they’re great, fluffy reads, but they don’t *really* have plots.

2. Turkey: what book made you want to fall asleep?

1984

If I had to pick one book to call my least favorite of all-time, it would be this one. No shame. I read it for school last year, second semester, and I could. Not. Stand It. If there’s ever any sort of global crisis and I need fuel for fires, this will be the first to go. Oops.

3. Gravy: what book makes the whole series worth reading?

SK

Vampire Academy and Frostbite are great, but oh my God, this book. THIS FREAKING BOOK. After that cliffhanger, I was completely invested. My soul hurt and I had to keep reading. I’m not even exaggerating.

4. Stuffing: what book is stuffed full of action scenes?

dt

All three books in the series so far would work, but I think Sybella’s impulsiveness takes the cake in this one. In Grave Mercy, Ismae is navigating court drama, and in Mortal Heart, Annith is a bit too cautious and logical.

5. Dressing: what book has a lot of drama?

tog

I don’t think this needs much of an explanation. Celaena is very dramatic, and in fantasy books everyone seems to forget how to directly communicate, so…

6. Mashed potatoes: what book looked good but wasn’t?

acowar

I knew this book would be at least somewhat problematic, but I was still really excited for it. Unfortunately, in more ways than one, it let me down. It was good, but not amazing like I’d hoped; maybe calling it okay would be more accurate.

7. Cranberries: what book has the sweetest romance?

wdmr

Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I had a bunch of ideas for my answer. But honestly, Dimple and Rishi take the cake. Dimple throws her coffee on Rishi; Rishi goes to a coding summer camp for Dimple even though he’s not interested in that. Dimple is fierce and headstrong, and Rishi is adorably awkward. ❤

8. Corn: what’s the corniest book you’ve ever read?

32768522

I read this back in 2015 and I enjoyed it, but I have to say: it’s corny. It’s a lot like Harry Potter, and some of the spells are almost too silly to take seriously.

9. Green beans: what book is too long and needs to be shortened?

tod

Another disappointing SJM book I’ve read lately. This one had a lot of good and bad qualities, but the beginning was painfully slow. I think this could’ve been around 500 pages and had the same effect. Just saying.

10. Pumpkin pie: what book would you read to get out of a reading slump?

qog

There are so many fluffy favorites I could’ve picked for this question, but Queens of Geek is the first one that I thought of. Other possible answers include the Anna and the French Kiss trilogy and Noteworthy by Riley Redgate.

What book do you think could be shortened? What’s your go-to book if you’re in a reading slump? Do you agree with my answers? I’d love to know! 🙂


I’m off to take some bookstagram photos and hopefully finish reading The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy. 😉 I hope you all have a fabulous day/night! ❤

Until next time…

  1. Nice picks for this tag! My favorite was probably the book you chose for the Mashed Potatoes one — I was super excited for ACOWAR as well, but then I read it and it was just… meh. 😅 I had such high expectations of the book but it just didn’t meet it! I did enjoy reading the first two books in the past, though, even though after rereading them I didn’t like them as much as before. It’s weird how you can lose your love for a series even just a year after starting it 🙂 I enjoyed reading your answers to this tag! 😊

    1. Thank you! ☺️❤️ yes, unfortunately, ACOWAR wasn’t the finale I’d hoped it would be. I never reread ACOTAR or ACOMAF, but other reviews brought problems in them to my attention. I never expected my thoughts on the series to change so drastically.

  2. I actually really enjoyed ACOWAR 🤷‍♀️ but I know it got some mixed reviews. I haven’t gotten to ToD yet, but I do have on my shelf… and have since it came out 😅 I’m not a huge Chaol fan, so I’m working up to it really. I definitely agree about Katie West! Her books are fluffy and a lot of fun, but there isn’t much plot wise going on! I have Grave Mercy on my shelf as well, waiting to be picked up! I added it to my tbr after reading your review on it 🙂 great picks

    1. I’m glad you liked ACOWAR! I did like it, but far less than I expected to. 🌚 TOD wasn’t the best, but there were some really good plot twists! And I love Yrene. I hope you like it when you get to it! 😁 Omg yes, GM!!! My fav!!! Haha I hope you enjoy that one too. ☺️❤️
