The Thanksgiving Book Tag!

Top Ten Tuesday(5)

I figured I’d get a little bit ahead of the game and do my Thanksgiving Book Tag a couple days early! This tag was created by Erin & Becca and I found the tag over on Mama Kat’s Losin’ It.

(I also have reviews up for all of the books mentioned)

1. Bread- What book is purely fluff, and has no real plot line?

As much as I adored and worshiped “Queens of Geek” it really is the kind of book that’s all fluff and no plot, the plot is some friends going to a convention but mostly the book focuses on the characters themselves and romances. I loved it though, this book is seriously amazing.


2. Turkey- What book made you want to fall asleep?

So, so, so boring/ I’m sorry but when you market a book as an origin tale for Blackbeard I expect some action and PIRACY! Not a hist-fic romance full of tropes and a love interest that is borderline abusive. No. This was so slow that you’re dang right I would have rather been sleeping.


3. Gravy- What book makes the whole series worth reading?

This series is worth reading all the way through…well at least up until the latest issue since it’s not finished yet! Everything is well done from the world building to the characters and the art is seriously gorgeous!


4. Stuffing- What book is stuffed full of action scenes?

Once you get past the first couple of chapters that set up the story it’s non stop action from there! Tons of plot twists, seriously, tons. This book will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time you’re reading it!


5. Mashed Potatoes- What book looked good, and then wasn’t?

This cover is insanely gorgeous but the book was just really slow and confusing as hell. I still don’t really know what the whole point of the book was or what even happened.


6. Cranberries- What book has the sweetest romance?

Image result for the forbidden wish

There’s actually a couple romances that I like but I would have to say Aladdin and Zahra are one of my absolute favorites. Their romance was slow burn and forbidden which are two big things I look for in bookish romances. They are so adorable, also the rest of the book is fantastic as well!


7. Corn- What’s the corniest book you’ve ever read?

I don’t tend to go for books that can end up being corny, but I suppose one I kind of consider corny is “Paper Princess” since it really isn’t a story I take seriously. It’s one of those stories I read for the entertainment and shock value.


8. Green beans- What book is too long and needs to be shortened?

Seriously! Why was this book 488 pages?! Why?! It has no business being that long! It’s a slow, hist-fic romance with a very boring mystery that’s hardly a mystery. So yeah it really doesn’t need to be 488 pages of a little plot and a lot of filler.


9. Pumpkin Pie- What book do you read to get out of a reading slump?

I don’t really re-read books ever so I don’t have a “go-to” book for reading slumps but I usually try and read something I know I’ll love. However, if I was going to re-read something it’d probably be a graphic novel such as “Nimona”.


10. Dog/Cat- What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food that you would steal from the table?

Stuffing, definitely stuffing. I could sit and eat nothing but stuffing and be perfectly fine. I also adore cranberries too though…just saying.

      Thank you! 🙂
      Finally someone who agrees with me on These Shallow Graves! I think I could have enjoyed it more if it wasn’t so long, it just kept dragging on for me.

    I love this tag and your answers! I actually bought These Shallow Graves recently and I’m sad to hear that it’s boring, but at least I only spent a few bucks on it at BookOutlet and it looks pretty on my shelf. 😉 I’m totally stealing this tag for my Thanksgiving day post!

      Thanks Destiny!
      I hope you enjoy These Shallow Graves more than I did, I thought it would be a little more creepy and thrilling since the cover looks slightly creepy but I’m just not a big fan of hist-fic romances which is more of what this book is. It definitely has a pretty cover and you didn’t pay full price for it like I did! 🙂

    The romance between Aladdin and Zahra was the best! I love them as characters and as a couple as well! ❤ I love when there is a slow burn romance.
    Nimona is such an amazing graphic novel! It's one I would definitely reread as well, it has been a while since I read it so it would be fun to revisit the story again. Also, as it's a graphic novel it would be a fast read! 🙂

      Same! One of my all time favorite couples because everything was just done right! Slow burn is the best!
      Nimona is also just amazing, one of my all time favorite graphic novels and I should probably give it a re-read as well because like you said it’d be a quick one! 🙂
