Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. This week’s prompt is Thanksgiving Freebie. I wanted to do something Thanksgiving related, but fun, and I came across the Thanksgiving Book Tag on The Sassy Book Geek. It was originally created by Erin & Becca!
(Link to synopsis on Goodreads through the book title.)
1) Bread – What book is purely fluff (and has no real plot line)?
So, I don’t read books that are pure fluff, and if I start one, I usually put it down, so I’m going to change this prompt to mean ‘good fluff’. The kind of book that is lighthearted, but also has a message.
Pumpkinheads is a book I’m currently reading, but I can already tell it’s the good kind of fluff. It’s so much fun!! Perfect for the week of Thanksgiving!
2) Turkey – A book that made you want to fall asleep!
I struggled through A Tale of Two Cities. I wanted to love it, but I just couldn’t.
3) Gravy – What book makes the whole series worth reading?
Cress is the third installment in The Lunar Chronicles, but it’s my favorite. I love Cress and Thorne. I could read a whole series dedicated to just them.
4) Stuffing – What book is stuffed full of action scenes?
The Silent Corner is the first in the Jane Hawk series, all of which are action-packed. These are more thriller than horror, which is Koontz’ typical genre. I thoroughly enjoyed each one!
5) Mashed Potatoes – What book looked good, but then wasn’t?
I’m very much in the minority with this one, but I did not enjoy November 9. And I typically like most of Colleen Hoover’s books.
6) Cranberries – What book has the sweetest romance?
The latest novel by Katherine Center, Things You Save in a Fire, has the sweetest romance and maybe one of the sweetest leading men I’ve come across. Loved it!
7) Corn – What’s the funniest (corniest) book you’ve ever read?
This is another one I’m having a hard time with. I don’t read corny books, so I’m going to go with funniest.
I’ve read Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim a couple of times (once even out loud to my husband) and I always laugh.
8) Green Beans – What book is too long and needs to be shortened?
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed The Correnctions, but I think it could’ve been edited down a bit. I’m sure the author disagrees. 😉
9) Pumpkin Pie – What book do you read to get out of a reading slump?
Whenever I need to ‘cleanse the palate’ I pick up a Janet Evanovich novel, usually whichever Stephanie Plum novel is next in the series. One for the Money is, of course, the first one in the series.
10) Dog/Cat – What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food that you would steal from the table?
I’m honestly confused by the Dog/Cat description. I’m assuming it means if you were a dog or cat?? However, I’ve never known a dog or cat to be that selective. 😉 If I’ve got it all wrong, please feel free to correct me!
Stuffing (or Dressing) and Cranberry Sauce! Yum!
Tag! You’re It!
Please be sure to tag the creators and me, so I can see what you chose! 😉
