Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag

Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag

Well, it’s November, which means Halloween is over and it’s Thanksgiving’s turn in the spotlight! What’s that you say? Christmas stuff is already taking over all the store and television? Well, make some room on the table, because here comes the Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Mention the creator of the tag, Elley the Book Otter
  2. If you were tagged, mention who tagged you!
  3. Answer the prompts (and try not to get too hungry!)

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.

Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

Look, I don’t get what gets people all hot to trot about this series. The Hobbit was good but this book is BORING. There is an entire chapter about a hill, for crying out loud. Why? It’s just so dry.

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

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

I like to reread this one sometimes as a comfort read… Something about Regency times and sisters supporting each other and men being fools makes me just feel comforted. Or maybe it’s all the tea they drink, idk.

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

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant

I bought this one on ebook, and loved it so much I did an almost immediate re-read on audiobook. The audiobook is AMAZING. And then of course I needed to buy it in paperback… I’m working on annotating a paperback copy now. 🙂

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…)

Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law by Haben Girma

I had to read this for a book club at work hosted by our Disability Awareness ERG (of which I am the secretary… and yes, I also helped host the book club, haha). This memoir is SO interesting, and also engagingly written. It didn’t feel like “non-fiction” (which I don’t much care for…) at all.

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.

Rainbow and Black Vol 1 by Eri Takenashi

This manga is SO WEIRD. Like she finds this little abandoned… birdmouse? That’s some sort of rare pet? There are a lot of shots of its butthole. It’s weird.

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

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Is this book amazingly written? No, not really. But it’s not as horrible as people make it out to be either. There are definitely worse books, and I’d argue that the writing itself is better than the Harry Potter series, and plenty of people go gaga over that, so. *shrug*

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

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

I reread this book at least once a year and it’s one of my favorites. Which is why you’ll see it pop up on book tags like this one again and again and again… haha.

What’s *your* favorite Thanksgiving food, and what sort of category would you make for it on this Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag?

For ease of copy/pasting, here are the categories again:

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.

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

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