TAGGED: Give Thanks for all the Great Reads

Thanksgiving is almost here! Can you believe it? I feel like I just traded my shorts for boots and here I am getting ready to sit down with the family and eat way too much food!

I am over the moon with excitement about this post because it’s a new thing for me. I created this book tag!! I never thought I would do something like that, but then one day I just decided….

heck, I could do this!

So here is my fun Thanksgiving tag that I hope you all enjoy and share with your friends!!

Short and sweet rules:

  • make sure to tag me as the creator (because I want to see everyone’s answers and make my TBR even longer…) Abbey @ Three Cats and a Girl
  • make sure to tag the lovely blogger who tagged you (because they also love lengthening their TBR)
  • Give something that you are thankful for this year at the end of the post!
  • tag as many or as few bloggers as you like!

You Turkey! ~ a book that made you laugh

Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan. I love food and he has written a completely hysterical story about food. If you enjoy eating at all, you’ve got to read this book!

I’m Stuffed ~ a book that completely satisfied you

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. This book…..oh my word….just absolutely lovely. I was so happy reading this book.

Pumpkin Pie ~ the book you are looking forward to reading next

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena. First off, the cover for this book is super cool. Second, the blurbs I’ve read for this….make me start to question my neighbors. You never really know some people.

Go Team! ~ a book where you found yourself really cheering for a certain character

Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I couldn’t help but cheer and hoorah for Fanny the entire way through this book.

Macy’s Day Parade ~ a book that’s always there waiting on the bookshelf to be read and you know you’ll get to it eventually

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I’ve heard so many good things about this book and I really do want to read it. I just am intimidated. So I keep putting it off.

Traditions ~ a book you could/do reread every year because it’s so dang good

Dracula by Bram Stoker. I’ve only read it once, but I want to read it again!! It was excellent. Like pure gold.

I’m Thankful For ~ a book that really helped you in life

Live Fearless: A Call to Power, Passion, and Purpose by Sadie Robertson. READ THIS BOOK. I struggled a lot earlier this year with fear, doubts, insecurities and this book helped me knock those back and remind me of the truth. Please find this book and read it!!

I am so thankful this year for second chances and patient people. I’ve been given a wonderful opportunity again this year and I went for it. Best decision I’ve made in a long time!

And that’s my Give Thanks tag!! Now, I want you to participate!

TAGGED: The Fall Book Tag

Theresa at the lovely The Calico Books tagged me for this festive tag and it made me quite excited as it’s been some time since I’ve done a tag. And, I do love autumn. So it’s a win-win! Shanah who created the Bionic Book Worm created this fun and festive autumn weather book tag and so a big thank you to her for sending all this fun everyone’s way! I know this is toward the end of fall, but that’s alright!

Crisp Fall Air ~ a book that felt fresh and new

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. I read this last year, but man…it was like nothing I had ever read before and nothing has come close to comparing to it. Highly, highly suggest you check it out!

Howling Windows ~ an ending that blew you away

The Life She Was Given by Ellen Marie Wiseman. I was dumbfounded!! I am a sucker for circus books and this one did not disappoint!

Leaf Fight ~ a book with non-stop action

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson was a twisty turny ride the entire time! I had no clue what was going on, but not in a bad way. In the really good way! I never guessed the turns it kept taking!

Pumpkin Spice ~ your most anticipated read

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton – I am absolutely dying to read this book! It’s about a doll house that starts to replicate the family’s real life!

Comfy Sweaters ~ a book that gave you the warm and fuzzy’s

The entire Christmas series by Donna VanLiere. They are beautiful and I would recommend checking them out! I’ve read the first five, but I know there are a couple more that I haven’t read yet! Sweet and heartwarming little stories for winter time.

Bright Colors ~ a cover with either red, orange, or yellow

Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman – I read this book about 4 years ago, but I thoroughly loved it! I also can’t pass up a good prison story!

And that’s my Fall Book Tag! I would like to tag…
