24 Festive Tasks: Door 9 Thanksgiving

 

 

 

hosted by Murder by Death, Themis-Athena, and Moonlight Snow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Task 1:  List the 3 books you’ve read this year you’re most “thankful” for (your favs) or the one book you’ve ever read that changed your life for the better.

 

 

Powerful story about grief and letting go. Loved it.

 

 

That ending was BRUTAL!!

 

 

Not chosen for it's rating but because it introduced me to a new author, Christopher Buehlman.

 

Task 2:  Describe your perfect meal.  What would you cook for the perfect celebration, or, what would you have your imaginary personal chef cook for you?

 

I love pork dumplings but wouldn't have the time or patience to make them myself so that  would be something I would have made as well as haggis bon bons. Yum

 

  

 

Task 3:  Name a book you’ve read this year that you thought was full of “stuffing”.

 

 

Have no idea what the point of this story was, no substance whatsoever, thank god it was only 37 pages long. Too long even at that.

 

Task 4:  Show us your 2018 book “harvest” – the books you newly acquired this year, regardless whether bought, received as gift or in whichever other way.
