Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag || Happy Thanksgiving!

I came across this tag over at Elley the Book Otter page and thought lets do this! So here’s the Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag!

Turkey: The centerpiece of any Thanksgiving Feast, but it’s always dry and actually isn’t that great… – A book that everyone likes, for some reason that completely escapes you.

You by Caroline Kepnes. I’ve tried to read this book a couple of times now, and I just can’t seem to get into it. I think this one is just not for me. (Also, I haven’t watched the show yet, but I do want to check it out)

Stuffing: Warm and filling, and best when smothered with gravy – A comfort read.

For me, this would be the Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare! At this point I’ve reread them multiple times(at least The Mortal Instruments), and I still feel like I’m finding things that I missed. And each time, I get sucked back into the world!

Potatoes: Boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew – A book that’s great in any format – hardcover, digital, audio…

I believe the A Good Girls Guide to Murder books by Holly Jackson are perfect in any format! I’ve read the first two books, three ways. I listen to the audiobook for both, while reading the hardcover for the first book, and the ebook for the second! I enjoyed them each way.

Green Bean Casserole: the obligatory side dish that you have to have… whether you want it for not. – A book that you were obligated to read (for school, for a book club, because it was a gift…)

There were a lot of books that I had to read for school that I didn’t enjoy, but they’re also some that I did. So I thought I’d share one that I did enjoy. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. I will admit, it has been awhile since I’ve read this, but I remember being so surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. I do wonder if I were to reread this, what I would think of it now.

Jello Salad: Look, this is dessert, how on earth does jello with bits of fruit and marshmallows and whipped cream get classified as ANY sort of salad? – A book that is really bizarre.

I honestly can’t think of a really bizarre book that I’ve read off the top of my head…hmm…

Cranberries: Do you serve real cranberries, or canned cranberry jelly? A book that is highly divisive – and you have strong opinions about it.

I’m going to have to steal her answer and say Twilight! It gets a lot of flack, and I really don’t think it deserves it. Of course it has it’s flaws, but I think it’s a series that will always be important to people!

Pie: Whether it’s pumpkin, apple, pecan, or French silk, it’s not Thanksgiving without pie – A book you can’t live without.

I’m going to have to repeat an answer and go with the Shadowhunter series as a whole. I’ve been reading these books for a very long time, and I just can’t imagine what it be like to not have this series, and these characters! I absolutely love this series!

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. Of course I had to get his newest book! I’m very excited to get to this!

Murder on tbookcoverhe Orient Express by Agatha Christie. I checked this one out from my library. I wanted to see the movie, but of course had to read the book first.
