Hi friends! Happy Thanksgiving! I have much to be thankful for this year, including ALL OF YOU. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it celebrates 1) being with people you love, whether it’s your birth family or your family of choice; and 2) reflecting on things you’re thankful for. One of the greatest blessings in my life has been the book blogging community. This community is a “family of choice” to me, providing me with so many dear friendships, so I wanted to come up with a way to celebrate with all of y’all. That’s how I came up with the idea of the Thanksgiving Book Tag–this is just a way to have a little fun and talk about some of the books that we’re most thankful for this Thanksgiving. Oh, and it also allows me to talk about food, another of my great loves. Though I can assure you that this English Trifle will NOT be on my dinner table this year. ;)
Disclaimer: I conducted a search to make sure a tag like this didn’t already exist, so I wouldn’t neglect giving due credit. My search didn’t provide any results, but I apologize if someone has already had this idea and I didn’t see it.

This tag was created by the lovely Alexa from Alexa Loves Books and Hannah from So Obsessed With, two of my favorite people. Obviously anything Throne of Glass related ends up on this blog eventually, because we’re not letting this one slide by. We were tagged by both Alexa and Gillian to do this, so let’s get started!

HELLO THIS IS OUR 500TH POST. LOOK AT US BEING BLOGGERS WHO ACTUALLY BLOG. WE HAVE COME SO FAR SINCE I (JUDITH) STARTED THIS SILLY BLOG IN 2012. DON’T LOOK AT ME I’M NOT CRYING. I’M SO PROUD OF US. AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO CELEBRATE THAN WITH HALSEY, AMIRITE? ANYWAY, BACK TO ELLIS.
You might have lived under a rock for the past few months if you don’t know who Halsey is. (Or just not that into Tumblr, Twitter, good music, certain people on this blog, and the people they like to yell with about exciting things in the aforementioned spaces.) In any case, when I (Ellis) saw Angie mention to someone she wished there was a Halsey book tag, I crashed that conversation, and we came up with some prompts. Then Meg crashed our conversation and helped us fill in the missing spaces. Et voilà, next thing you know, Angie creates a full-blown book tag on her perfectly named new blog, Lady Knight Reads. Technically, I wasn’t tagged but I’m going to interpret contributing to the creation process as a tag of sorts. And obviously, I’m dragging my co-bloggers down with me. Also EEEP 500th post (even though I haven’t even blogged here for a year.)
Note from Ellice: EEEEEEEEEEEEEE 500 posts! *cupcakes for everyone!*
