Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: 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.

I am one of the very few that didn’t care for this one AT ALL—so much that I even had to DNF’d it, which was a first for this author and I disliked it so much that I am not sure I even want to read this author more. I am baffled why so many enjoyed it when I couldn’t get through it without wanting to wring the heroine’s neck LOL

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

Kristen Ashley is the best author to bring out those comfort reads and as I read this one this year, it was like being wrapped in a cozy blanket on a cold winter’s night. I couldn’t get enough of it.

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

This book is amazing and one of my favorite releases this year!! And as the narrator of this audio book is with Mary Jane Wells and she is one of the best talents in the business.

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…)

I will be honest, this book lacked for me and I was so down after reading this one because I had such high hopes for it and just fell flat for me. Especially since so many have such respect and love for this author and so far I unfortunately haven’t been impressed.

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.

Alright this book is fantastic but its so bizarre!! LOL Such a unique experience in reading this.

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

This BOOK!! Oh boy…..This book was so not a romance for me and it felt more like a political lecture. I know many have enjoyed this one, but this was a big “NO” for me. Just evidence that some books work from some and not for others. I just don’t care for such strong politicizing in romance novels because it was overly strong in this one, way too much in my view.

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

I had such a blast with this one, such a joy to read!! And just seeing such an example of both the hero and heroine lifting each other up and having such positive emotional health in a relationship being a focus was so sexy to me. We need more of this in romance.

So tell me if you were to add any other food group to your Thanksgiving dinner what would it be? And what theme for a book would it be in? Let me know in the comments below!
