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.
