TCL’s #EightCandleBookTag Link Party – Seventh Candle for 2019 – Seven Colors of the Rainbow!


00 Eight Candle Book TagAs 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 seventh candle for the seventh 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:

🕯️🕯️🕯️🕯️Seventh Candle🕯️🕯️🕯️
All the Colors of the Rainbow:

A book that just thinking about, makes you feel hopeful or happy, like seeing a rainbow after the rain. Alternatively, any LGBTQA+ Novel you really liked.

ed79c-whole2btown2btalkingWhile many books have happy endings, or are known as “feel good” novels, there are few authors that can make you feel hopeful like the author Fannie Flagg. The characters in her books are always these ordinary people, who have normal (and sometimes extraordinary) struggles, but they always seem to find that light at the end of the tunnel. That makes us think that no matter what difficulties we might experience, there’s always going to be something good in our lives to keep us going. That’s how I felt when I read her novel “The Whole Town’s Talking” which I called an Elmwood Springs retrospective. You’ve got to read it to understand what I mean.

8th Candle

What book would you choose for this subject?

If you write a post for this meme, I hope you’ll put your link to that post into the link party tool here (or just put your choice in a comment on this post), so we can all see it!

The link party will run from 6:00am Israel time (GMT +2) on December 22 through midnight December 30!

Happy Holidays!

  1. For me, this one is easy –“A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles. In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. But Rostov does not rail against his fate. Instead, he embraces his new life and is enriched by each encounter with the staff and guests of the hotel. And the ending is poetically perfect.
