Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Reads to Dive into over the Thanksgiving Holiday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is a Thankful Freebie in honor of this week’s Thanksgiving holiday.  I couldn’t really think of anything specifically ‘thankful’ to post about that I haven’t done in previous years so instead, I’m going to share some books I think would make fabulous reads to dive into over the long holiday weekend.  Had enough of your family?  Don’t want to get caught up in the madness of the Black Friday shopping ritual?  I’ve got you covered!

My list is heavy on what I consider to be fun and romantic reads, and I’m very heavy on socially awkward, introverted main characters since I’ll be reveling in my own social awkwardness the entire holiday weekend, haha.  But I’ve also included a few more serious reads, including a thriller and some science fiction. And finally, to help get you in the holiday spirit since Christmas is right around the corner, I’ve included a favorite holiday read that has a wonderful focus on sisters and family.

    We have similar tastes in books, apparently! For every book on your list, I’ve either (a) read it and loved it, (b) bought a copy but haven’t read it yet, or (c) have it on my TBR list. I loved THINGS YOU SAVE IN A FIRE, THE TURN OF THE KEY, and NINA HILL. I own but haven’t read RECURSION and EVVIE DRAKE. The others are on my TBR. Crazy! I hope you get time to read some of these over the long weekend and that you find a good hiding place where your family can’t find you 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Oh, I love the idea of reflecting social awkwardness in books:)). I’m keen to tuck into Recursion after the whirlwind that was Dark Matter… Happy Thanksgiving, Suzanne.
