As you already know from my post last week (where you’ll find the concept and the topics), I invented a new meme to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah with all of my book blogging friends, of all races, creeds, religions, genders, and whatever. I’m calling it…
The Chocolate Lady’s
Eight Candle Book Tag Link Party!
This post is being published just as Jews in Israel light the fourth candle for the fourth day of Hanukkah. I have chosen one book for each night on bookish topics (the topics and rules can be found on this post, here). Also, you will find my Link Party at the bottom of each of these posts so anyone who wants to can join in the fun.
Remember, you don’t have to be Jewish to participate!
Here is my choice for:
A book that you read that you knew you’d like or dislike before you began reading.
There are lots of books I know I’m going to love just from reading the blurbs, but there’s one author that I can always count on to give me a really, amazing, fantastic read. That is my favorite author, Michael Ondaatje, who wrote “The English Patient” which I adored SO much that I have never had the courage to write a review for it. Of the other of his books, the one that is my second favorite is “The Cat’s Table” which is a semi-autobiographical novel about an 11-year old boy traveling all alone, by ocean liner from Sri Lanka to England to be reunited with his mother.
