Give Thanks for All the Great Reads

Last month, I was tagged by the wonderful Mackey over at MacsBooks to showcase some of the books I’m thankful for this year. It’s a new tag created by Abbey from Three Cats and a Book just in time for Thanksgiving.

I’m more than a little behind.

So, for my sake, let’s pretend it’s still Thanksgiving. It’s never out of season to give thanks, right? Pop a turkey in the oven, ignore whatever football game is on TV, and curl up with one of these great reads.


You Turkey ~ a book that made you laugh

A Village Affair by Julie Houston is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time.


I’m Stuffed ~ a book that completely satisfied you

Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield read like a tale woven specifically for me.


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

Finding Dorothy by Elizabeth Letts. Historical fiction? The Wizard of Oz? Perfect.


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

Property of the Rebel Librarian by Allison Varnes. Everything was stacked against June Harper and her quest for the freedom to read.


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

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. One day.


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

Wicked by Gregory Maguire. Two Oz-themed books in one list. Scandalous. But this is one of my favorites, and I pick it back up every year.


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

Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel for so many reasons.
