Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As we get ready for one of the most exciting holidays, we thought it would be fun to post something in anticipation. We found this tag on The Sassy Geek and that knew we wanted to participate. Feel free to participate too. We’d love to read your answers.
1. Name a book that made you thankful you live in your world and not the book’s world.
Down Comes the Night is set in a dark and creepy magical world. Most of the book takes place at an estate we guarantee you wouldn’t want to visit. Wren thinks that helping the owner of the estate will be her ticket back to her normal life. But there’s something sinister going on. Wren must solve the mystery before everyone falls victim to the darkness that looms at Colwick Hall.
2. Give thanks to a book that changed your perspective.
Pushing Perfect is one of our favorite underrated YA books. It changed our perspective because it tackles the subject of perfectionism. Kara, the MC, is expected to be perfect. But when she can’t get through the SATs because of her anxiety, she gets involved in a twisted game. We found Kara to be super relatable and wanted the best for her.
3. What character would you be thankful for if they were your significant other?
How could we not pick Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices? Imagine bringing Will to meet your family for the first time over the Thanksgiving holiday. Just make sure your family doesn’t serve duck. Speaking of Will, we can’t wait to see more of adult Will when Chain of Thorns releases in January 2023,
4. What character would you say “Thanks, but no thanks”?
Adam Conant from The Secret Circle is one of our least favorite book boyfriends. We will always believe that Cassie Blake should’ve ended up with Nick Armstrong. Adam didn’t always treat Cassie well and he spent too much time siding with his ex-girlfriend.
5. Name a book that made you laugh out loud, just like your drunk Uncle Earl at Thanksgiving.
Ten Things We Did is full of antics and its easily a comedy of errors. Imagine being a teenager and living with your bestie. We promise this YA contemporary will make you laugh throughout the entire story. We re-read this book over the summer and it didn’t disappoint.
6. Name a book that made you incredibly angry…just like your drunk Uncle Earl at Thanksgiving.
Sadly, we found Better Together to be one of our biggest disappointments. It felt like Riccio lacked creativity in her second novel. She just combined The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday. We also found most of the characters to be unlikable. Only one of the characters, Siri, was interesting to read about and everyone in her life treated her terribly.
7. Finally, name one thing you are thankful for about the Book Community
We’re thankful for all the amazing people we’ve met through the book blogging community. It’s amazing to share our love of reading with all of you. We’re thankful for everyone who has read our blog these past three years. Again, thanks for stopping by and if you celebrate, have an amazing Thanksgiving!
