Hi everyone! I wanted to do this tag now because I won’t be posting tomorrow or Thursday.
I’m still feeling completely awful, so I’m still home. Today and tomorrow, I am going to write all day.
Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be winning NaNoWriMo this year, but I’m immensely impressed with what I was able to accomplish while feeling so terrible.
Thanksgiving Day is always crazy and I will be sure to do a blog post on that, Friday.
Today, I wanted to do a Thanksgiving themed tag, which I found here. As always, I tag you if you d like to play along.
Giving Thanks Book Tag
Name a book that made you thankful you live in your world and not the book’s world.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Definitely not a world I would want to live in. The districts, poor and unhealthy…the Capital, naive and obnoxious…and, I would be the first to die in the Games.
Give thanks to a book that changed your perspective.
My Story by Elizabeth Smart. I very rarely pick up biographies and this one had reviews ranging from 1 star to 5. I went to a Woman’s conference with a group from work, and Elizabeth Smart was the speaker. After hearing her describe some of what happened to her, I immediately bought the book. While the writing isn’t the best, the story is heart-wrenching and inspiring all at once.
What character would you be thankful for if they were your significant other?
I’m cheating. Damon from The Vampire Diaries TV show. I haven’t read the books, but he’s always my answer. I know, he’s a pretty messed up character but the change he goes through during the entire story is so significant that I can’t help but love him.
What character would you say, “thanks but not thanks” to?
Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I’m just…meh…about him. It isn’t that he’s a bad character or boring, he is just not my favorite.
Name a book that made you laugh out loud?
I don’t read a ton of comedic novels, however some of the banter in Eve: The Awakening by Jenna Moreci is hysterical. Specifically, Madison, Hayden and Heather with their “Mean Girls” attitudes.
Name a book that made you incredibly angry.
I’ve mentioned this before. I try very hard not to get angry with books (unless the reason it sucks is the atrocious writing). However, in school, we were forced to read The Butterfly Revolution by William Buttler… I threw the book across the room. The kids made decisions that just made me want to jump into the book and strangle them. 😲
Name one thing you are thankful for in the wordpress community.
Meeting people who are like minded. I love getting to know people who love to read and write as much as I do. It’s so fun to share our opinions, even when they differ. 😊
That’s all I have for you today. If you do the tag, let me know, so I can read your answers.
From my family to yours, have a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving!! 🦃
