I’m oh so happy that Thanksgiving break is here. I’m definitely reflecting on everything that is going on right now and making the most of the break from work. With that I decided to do a fall-themed book tag and I must admit I love pumpkin-flavored things (except PSL’s only because I don’t drink coffee…)
I got this tag over at Milliebot Reads, check out the original post here!
Pumpkin: A writer you always make a point to read in October
Hmm, I’m not much of a seasonal reader, but I must say I’m super happy that we decided to begin rereading Harry Potter in October!
Pumpkin Spice: A work you would read to impress a millennial
Um, I don’t think that is a thing. I don’t read to impress people, I read to enjoy myself?
Pumpkin Pie: A work that makes you think of autumn
Stephanie Perkin’s short stories, My True Love Gave to Me.
Pumpkin Cheesecake: A work that was challenging to read but was a rewarding experience
The Martian by Andy Weir. There were times when I was reading it that it was very scientific and I’m glad I stuck through it though!
Pumpkin Bread: An underrated work by a well-known writer
Scythe by Neal Shusterman. Shusterman is definitely better known for his Unwind series (which is forever on my TBR) but I absolutely loved Scythe.
Pumpkin Soup: A work that you first enjoyed, but then lost interest
Paper Towns by John Green. By the end of the book, I just didn’t get the same reaction that I normally get with one of his books, the characters also really frustrated me.
Pumpkin Doughnut: A light, five-star read
I’ll go with Anna and the French Kiss. I really want to reread those books soon.
Pumpkin Picking: Within the last year, in which genre did you purchase the most books
Most definitely fantasy!
Pumpkin Carving: A work that could have been trimmed down
Both books in Cassandra Clare’s new series, The Dark Artifices series.
Pumpkin Painting: A book with magnificent illustrations
Ugh, Harry Potter illustrated editions 100%.
Pumpkin Ice Cream: The most random work you would recommend
Probably A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis. It’s a fantastic book and over here at Thrice Read we love some McGinnis books.
What is your favorite way to enjoy pumpkin/what is your favorite dish where pumpkin is the main ingredient?
My boyfriend’s mother makes the best pumpkin sheet cake I have ever tasted in my entire life. I love that thing.
