The Books I'm Thankful For (so far) in 2020


It is Thanksgiving Day (the USA version of it at least) today! The tradition on my blog is to post a list of ALL the books I've read thus far this year that I've given my highest ratings to (5 out of 5 stars) today, which means I'm VERY Thankful for finding/reading them!

HOWEVER -- and it is a BIG HOWEVER -- this year has been hard for everyone. Myself included when it comes to promoting the books I have been reviewing. As if you look at my 2017 & 2018 Thankful Book Lists you'll see within my top write-up (like this one) that I say something along the lines of "because of life I have reviews but have yet to fully post them yet." This year is a LITTLE different because though ... that is still true ... my reviews ARE backlogged ... I had a catastrophe in March 2020 where I LOST ALL OF MY PREVIOUS REVIEWS. Yeah. If you want to hear ALL about it click here. BUT for 2020 specifically I was trying gather some "reading stats" for you, so out of those 19 books I know that 5 that I have no reviews for need to be on this list because I had rated them 5 out of 5 stars!

Yes this list is odd BUT other than the top three books within this list the others DO have reviews for them -- FULL REVIEWS COMING SOON -- so CHECK IT OUT! I DO RECOMMEND ALL OF THESE NOVELS!!

➡️ Also for the THIRD year running I have a We Are Thankful For Books collab video (at the bottom of this post) for you. In the video you'll see 5 Youtubers (including myself) talk about the books they are thankful for reading this year. Enjoy! 📚🥧

What was I thinking?: Perfectly Dateless: A Universally Misunderstood Novel by Kristin Billerbeck

Format: Paperback | Pages: 257 | Release Date: July 2010 | Publisher: Revell

"Perfectly Dateless: A Universally Misunderstood Novel" by Kristin Billerbeck ( I read this as a part of Smitten With Books ARC Tours)

What was I thinking? : Well, the cover was cute and the product description that Smitten With Books ARC Tours gave was cute too. I truthfully thought it was going to be a sweet/cute YA novel that I would breeze right through. Instead it was like I was beating my head up against a wall, just trying to finish the book at my normal reading pace, when all I wanted to do was stop. =0P

My Book Summary : Daisy's life is based around her family and her beliefs, with that being said she has a lot of rules that her parents want her to live by. For the most part, she understands their fears, but after seventeen years being the "perfect daughter", she wants to spread her wings a bit more. So, her goal for her last year of high school is to get a date and go to Prom!! It's more so she will be able to say that she went more then anything, but to help her find the right guy she has a 'Prom Journal' to help her out. Her biggest problem is that her parents won't allow her to date, so she not only has to find a guy, but she has to convince her parents that this will be for the best.

Before her senior year, she chooses five guys who she has set her sights on being her prom date. And once the school year beings some of them start getting crossed off her list quickly. But her main person that she wants to go to prom with is Chase. She has been in love with him since kindergarten and he has always been sweet to her. However, she doesn't really know how he feels about her and soon the most popular (and meanest to Daisy) is falling all over Chase looking like Daisy might not have a chance. To top it off a new guy (in her grade) Max has set his sights on her.

In addition, Daisy and her best friend make plans on becoming more noticeable, but in doing so some of the decisions that are made have some consequences that they didn't expect. Will Daisy finally get to have more control over her life, and be able to attend prom with a date? Or will her parents succeed in keeping choosing her life and future for her?

My Book Review : 1 out of 5 stars. I must be a part of the group of people who have misunderstood this book since I just didn't like it at all. I dunno, I mean the message of the book was good. And don't get me wrong I have read some Christian fiction books before and there were a few that I did like. But this one rubbed me the wrong way I guess. I really can't stand "preachy" books and Daisy's parents were very "preachy". However, I will admit that I liked how Daisy dealt with her parents, and she was a good main character. I'm not to sure about her best friend Claire. I really think Daisy should have found a new best friend, since while I thought Daisy's parents were "preachy", Claire pushed her views onto Daisy too and I have never liked that about people.

Side note -- I just have to say ... where can I order myself a Max?! ALSO -- she has a great "fairy godmother" of a boss, which after you read the explanation of him is kind of surprising. =0)

On the other hand, when going to Amazon.com there were quite a few positive reviews on the book -- so those of you who are fans of Christian books might like and appreciate this book more so then I did.

Book Teaser(s) :
Things are not looking from a male perspective. Gil had a girlfriend in high school, which makes me think I need a boyfriend, otherwise how is a guy going to know he has to ask me to the prom? I mean, without a boyfriend, I'm throwing caution to the wind, leaving it all to chance. And that is just not me. I don't take chances.
All I know is the closer prom gets, the more pathetic my life becomes and the tighter my parents' grip seems to be. I am desperately close to losing all sense of sanity. Maybe that's too dramatic for four days of effort, but the results? Ugh, the results!
~ within Chapter 6

Feasted On: Victoria and the Rogue by Meg Cabot

Format: Paperback | Pages: 241 | Release Date: December 2004 | Publisher: Avon Books

"Victoria and the Rogue" by Meg Cabot

My Book Summary : Victoria has grown up with her three bachelor uncles in India ever since her parents died when she was very little. But now since she is sixteen they have shipped her off to live with her other aunt & uncle in England, and to find herself a husband. And even though her uncles made a wager as to how long it would take her to get a man to propose to her, she proves them all wrong by accepting a proposal while on the ship taking her to England!

Hugo is handsome and says the sweetest things to her ... and it doesn't hurt that he is a work-in-progress and needs her helping hand (and money) every once in a while (or more). But as she soon realizes that all might now be as it seems when it comes to her husband-to-be or his family. Especially since for a family who is on the decline (money wise), they surely do spend enough of it. Plus, it doesn't help that Captain Jacob Carstairs keeps telling her that Hugo is a rogue!!! Which just can't be! The Captain doesn't help any by always seeming to be around the corner or annoying Victoria by doing all sorts of things (especially when he calls her Miss Bee -- for being such a busy body). *sigh* What is a girl to do?

And then ..... maybe is this one situation where Victoria has it all wrong?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! CUTE & FUNNY to the extreme! Victoria and the Captain are so cute with their arguments. And I love how this is written like a first person passage but it goes into details that make it feel like the childhood stories I grew up with (but it's definitely a young adult book).

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Avalon High | Ready or Not

Book Teaser(s) :
Becky cast her cousin a disparaging look over one slim shoulder. She had been, ever since learning of her mother's acceptance of Captain Carstair's invitation to dine, coolly indifferent about the situation. But that, Victoria was quite certain, was all an act.
Or so Victoria had thought, until her cousin's next words hit her like a slap in the face.
"If you ask me, Vicky," Rebecca said in a very sour voice, "you're the one who seems to have a problem dining at Captain Carstairs's table this evening. For I certainly don't care. My affections belong entirely to another now." ~ within Chapter 8

Made the Grade: Forget You by Jennifer Echols

Format: Paperback | Pages: 292 | Release Date: July 2010 | Publisher: MTV Books

"Forget You" by Jennifer Echols

My Book Summary : Zoey's life is coming apart at the seams, and for a girl who tries to always portray herself as having it all together, that can change a person.

Basically her a couple of months ago her father informed her mother and her that his new girlfriend was going to have a baby. Then her mother fell into a depression and committed suicide, leaving Zoey to be the find her mother and make sure she got help. After dealing with that, her father threatening her not to tell anyone about what happened to her mother -- so no rumors would be spread, she goes to a party and hooks up with one of her guy friends (called Brandon). Even though she knows he usually is a player, she feels like their friendship before hooking up will make their relationship even better. A week goes by and her world is holding together for the most part. However, on Friday she decides to go to the Football game to support Brandon and her world takes another unexpected turn ....

While at the game she talks to her friends about an after party that Brandon said was just for the Football team, but they convince her that the Swim team should crash it. Then the next thing she knows is she is getting into a argument with Doug. Who just happens to be the bad boy at school, they haven't liked each other for a while now but he also just happens to be the only person who knows what happened to her mom and she hopes he'll keep it to himself. During that night however the argument is the last thing she remembers, as she finds out later that she happened to be in a car wreck loosing her memory.

Now while trying to piece her night back together, and trying to keep her secrets from everyone still, what she assumed she would have done seems to not have happened. Also, Brandon is no where to be seen but Doug just happens to be every where she is. Will she ever find out the truth and make sure no one finds out her biggest secret of all?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! A cute novel. Highly recommended. I wish I had a Doug of my own!! Zoey and Doug's relationship is so sweet especially since she knows there is an attraction but still is never sure exactly why.

Book Teaser(s) :
"What are you driving after that?"
I explained the conundrum of having a loaded father who bought expensive cars for himself and his mistress but not his daughter and disallowed his daughter from buying a cheap car either.
"He's as crazy as my dad," Doug marveled. "If he's so concerned about your safety, why won't he just buy you a car?"
"He says he doesn't want me to be a spoiled brat."
A few seconds passed, cars whispering beside us in the other lane of the main beach road, before I realized what I'd given away. ~ within Chapter 8

Made the Grade: One Night That Changes Everything by Lauren Barnholdt

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 242 | Release Date: July 2010 | Publisher: Simon Pulse

"One Night That Changes Everything" by Lauren Barnholdt

My Book Summary : In this high school in Massachusetts there is a secret fraternity called the 318s, and they just recently picked their latest prank victim: Eliza. Eliza knew about the group but it's an anonymous type so most of the student body doesn't really know who the actual members are or not. However, about 3 weeks ago or so, she recently decided on going through her boyfriend's, Cooper's, items while she was by herself in his room and came across his initiation process.

While doing so, she read the sheet that listed a bunch of point rankings for kissing, etc. that Cooper would have to do with Eliza. Making it so that their whole relationship was based on a lie and she broke up with him because of it.

NOW ... the 318s are getting revenge on her (because she outted one of their members) by stealing her notebook. But it wasn't just any kind of diary/notebook it was a place she kept things she was afraid of doing (like asking a guy to dance) or saying (like the things she wishes she had the guts to tell her friends, family, or other people).

But stealing her notebook was just the first step. The 318s try to freak her out by getting her to do some of the things she wrote in the notebook. If she doesn't do as they say, they plan to publish the notebook online.

So, with the help of her two best friends Eliza runs around Massachusetts during a night that will change her forever. Doing things, she would usually be to scare to do. Trying to out smart parents and cops. Having Cooper with her throughout the experience. Making her wonder why Cooper's trying to help her, if he even cares about her, or if he's just pulling together a personal prank all on his own.

Will she be able to get her notebook back before she reveals more then she should or even a secret that's in the book but not her own?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! It's a sweet book about a girl who feels she has lost her most prized possession, just to have to turn up into the "enemy's" hands. So, she goes out of her way to do what they say to get it back. But just when you think things are going one direction the secondary characters make decisions of their own Eliza world turns into something you never thought would happen. I highly recommend it for those who like sweet teeny romances, with a girl power kick to it. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
I approach them gingerly, not really sure exactly where to begin. I mean, what do I say, "Oh, hi, Nigel, I have to kiss you now?," "Wanna make out?," or maybe just "I'll give you twenty dollars if you kiss me." I pull my shirt down a little, because I figure I need all the help I can get. ~ within Chapter 6

Feasted On: Falling for Romeo by Jennifer Laurens

Format: Paperback | Pages: 197 | Release Date: Second Edition - 2009 | Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing

"Falling for Romeo" by Jennifer Laurens

My Book Summary : Jennifer and John grew up together. Their parents are friends. Also, they are next-door neighbors with bedroom windows parallel to each other. So, it would be hard not to become friends as well. And they were up until three years ago, which is when they both seemed to drift apart from each other.

Now they are in their senior year of high school, working together as Romeo & Juliet in their school’s play, and finding out who they have become since then.

It’s not like they haven’t talked in school. Oh no, they’ve talked. Mostly during English class when they are debating whatever that day’s discussion topic is, they get into very specific arguments because of them, but they don’t really talk any more than that.

Since they were friends, John has become Mr. Popular. He has hordes of girls wanting to be his girlfriend and just people wanting to follow whatever he says. While Jennifer isn’t quite the social butterfly, but she’s pretty, sweet, and has friends who are on the popular side of the social scene. However, she is mostly involved in the theater productions at her school (has been since middle school) and loves it.

Therefore, when their school’s performance came up Jennifer definitely planned on being involved, but for John, he auditioned just so he could get close to Jennifer again. =0)

Things are okay between them for a while, until the rehearsal kissing scenes start up. Which is where they both realize (and kind of deny to themselves) their feelings for one another. But with each one not brave enough to set aside their own pride to admit their feelings, they have a hard time believing if the chemistry they have on stage is real or is it faked?

Will they be able to find out before the play is over and their lives go in different directions again?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!!! I LOVED the chemistry between Jen & John!! Plus, finding out how close they were growing up it is kind of surprising they ever stopped being friends, but it does happen. You will be routing for them the whole way! I couldn't put it down. Great Book!!

Book Teaser(s) :
"What?" he demanded.
She echoed him, "What?"
"What!"
"I can't believe you did that---in front of all those people!"
"What makes that any different than what you just did with Alex in front of all those people?"
"He kissed me, for your information!"
"I saw it!"
"Then do you need your eyes examined? He kissed me." ~ within Chapter 9

Feasted On: Just One Wish by Janette Rallison

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 342 KB | Release Date: March 2009 | Publisher: Putnam Juvenile Books

"Just One Wish" by Janette Rallison

My Book Summary : The ultimate fantasy ... you meet a movie/TV star and they fall in love with you right away ... that's what happens in this sweet, funny, and touching story.

Annika would do just about anything for her little brother Jeremy, more so now then ever since her family found out that he has cancer. Nothing is off limits to make him happy. So, when she rushes to Toys "R" Us with her best friend Madison during the day after Thanksgiving sale for a Teen Robin Hood action figure for Jeremy, since it's all he seems to talk about as of late, she thinks no problem. Even when it comes down to dealing with a wormy older guy who just happens to be hording all of the Robin Hood figurines, no big deal.

But when she makes up this story for Jeremy that she received three wishes from a genie a while back, she has two wishes left, and she would like to give those two wishes to him ... things don't go as planned. She told him that one of the wishes would be for him to come out of his upcoming surgery with flying colors and the other one could be for anything he wanted. Well she assumed he would ask for that specific figurine but instead Jeremy wishes to have Robin Hood meet him and teach him more about archery! Thankfully when Annika told Jeremy that some wishes take a while to fulfill he believed her. Now the problem is how in the world is she going to get Steve Raleigh, the actor who portrays Teen Robin Hood, to come and visit Jeremy before his surgery in a week?

And she'll stop at nothing to make this happen ...

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars!! This was a great book!!! I loved it! The characters were portrayed wonderfully! I loved the banter between Steve and Annika! And Oh My God the stuff she could come up with at the drop of a hat! My only wish was that it was longer!!

Author Book Trailer :

Book Teaser(s) :
I bent down to have a one-on-one with Herman.
"Look, just be a good snake for the day and then we'll take you back to the pet store, okay?" I took the lid off and tried to remember how the lady at the pet store had picked him up. Was it headfirst or by the middle? I reached in and lifted him out of the cage. He at once wrapped himself around my arm, which I hoped was not a sign he was trying to eat me. ~ within Chapter 6

Made the Grade: The Three Sisters Inn Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 643 KB | Release Date: April 1, 2013 | Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense

"Hide in Plain Sight" [The Three Sisters Inn Series, Book 1] by Marta Perry

My Book Summary : Financial expert Andrea is rushing home to Churchville, PA (also known as Amish Country), to help her family and their inn they are trying to start up. She has been against the idea of the inn from the beginning, but with her younger sisters recent hit-and-run accident she has to help out, and being the oldest sister that means she needs to take charge.

However, once she gets there she finds her grandmother loves having her there, wants her to help with the inn as much as she can, but doesn't want Andrea to help with their financial struggles. In addition, she finds out that some people in the community really don't want the inn to be operational and might try to have it so the inn never opens at all costs.

To top it all off Andrea meets Cal, her grandmother's tenant, who is living and works in the renovated barn behind the inn and he's keeping his own secrets....

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! I wasn't expecting to like this book when I started reading it but I was pleasantly surprised! The plot was very well written. Good characters.

Book Teaser :
"There's someone, a man, out on the east side of the house."
"Andrea?" His voice sharpened. "Are you sure?"
