Happy (late) Thanksgiving! I honestly have so much to be thankful for this holiday season, and I thought it was fitting to also do a Thanksgiving Book Tag which I found over at The Bibliophagist to celebrate. ✨
Bread 🍞 What book is purely fluff and has no real plot line?
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. I am a sucker for cheesy romantic cuteness, and this book is filled with it! The plotline is essentially centered around the main character, Andie’s, development and self-discovery, but the family and friendship relationships are an integral piece to this book. 🐶 The male lead is also incredibly adorkable that you can’t help but love him too. Check out my 5-star review of this book here!
Turkey 🦃 What book made you want to fall asleep?
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia. I first read this book in middle school, and while the plotline and basic premise had potential, I thought it was poorly executed. 😕 The entire book was painfully long, but I kept reading in hopes of the storyline improving. I remember enjoying that it took the paranormal romance from the POV of the male lead, but overall, I didn’t love this story.
Gravy 🥣 What Books makes the whole series worth reading?
P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #2) by Jenny Han. I actually didn’t love the first book initially because of the sporadic pacing and cliches. 💌 However, after giving this series a second chance because of the aesthetically pleasing and super fluffy movie, I was impressed with the sequel. I really enjoyed meeting precious cinnamon roll John Ambrose McClaren and seeing Lara Jean and Peter develop as characters. Check out my review of the first book and this one!
Stuffing 🍗 What book is stuffed full of action scenes?
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I know it always seems like I have endless praise for this book, but I genuinely cannot recommend it enough. I actually plan on gifting a copy to my boss at my part-time job. 😅 With a mastermind like Kaz Brekker as the group’s leader, it’s no surprise that this book is filled with action scene after action scene, constantly keeping the reader of their toes.
Mashed Potatoes 🥔🍠 What book looked good and then wasn’t?
The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo. This cover art is one of the most beautiful and aesthetically pleasing that I’ve ever seen. However, the story itself was kind of a let down because I couldn’t bring myself to love the main character. ☁ I’m also super picky when it comes to pacing, and this book jumped from scene to scene without any proper transition. I’ve read Maurene Goo’s other books before and really enjoyed them, but this one is a no from me. Check out my review here!
Cranberries 🍒 What book has the sweetest romance?
Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare. Will Herondale…MY HEART. ❤ His love for Tessa is just too sweet for words, and the epilogue for the trilogy had me in tears! 😭 This series is just filled with wonderful romance and even better bromance. Jem Carstairs is equally as lovable, and I can’t recommend this series enough. Check out my reviews for Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, and Clockwork Princess!
Corn 🌽 What’s the corniest book you’ve ever read?
Geekerella by Ashley Poston. You have to except nothing but cheesiest and cliches when you’re reading a Cinderella remake, and this book did not disappoint. 🌟 This book combines all the wonderful fangirl cliches any book lover and blogger can relate to along with a classic tale that never grows old. Since it’s based on a familiar story, the plot itself is definitely predictable, but the characters and unique take on the book keep it both exciting and real.
Green beans 🥬 What book is too long and needs to be shortened?
Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer. This book was so freaking long! I sincerely enjoyed reading this entire series, and I loved all the characters we meet. 🍎❄ However, this book would’ve held my attention for a lot longer if it were a couple hundred pages shorter. I honestly think that Scarlet and Cress were much better paced because they kept a nice balance of plot and filler. Check out my reviews for Winter as well as the first book Cinder and my mini-reviews of Fairest and Stars Above!
Pumpkin Pie 🥧 What book do you read to get out of a reading slump?
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. This book will always be a classic for me, and it’s definitely my guilty pleasure read. Whenever I need a pick-me-up or want to lose myself in a reread, this is the series I always choose. 😍 Sydney and Adrian’s romance never fails to make me smile, and Sydney’s resilience and entire personality make her one of my top fictional role models.
Dog/Cat 🐶🐱 What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food that you would steal from the table?
Pumpkin Pie. I love a lot of classic Thanksgiving dishes, but my family tends to eat more traditional Asian foods during the holidays and I don’t eat meat (except seafood). 🙈 For example, my family ate a bunch of sushi and noodle soup this year. However, despite all the random things we may eat, I always find a way to eat pumpkin pie whether it’s because my cousins brought one over or because my friend made one fresh for Friendsgiving!
