For Today’s Book Tag I wanted to honor one of my favorite adult cartoons: Bob’s Burgers. I adore this show. It almost always has me busting a gut laughing and smiling. There are heartfelt moments mixed with bathroom humor. Perfection. If you’ve never seen it, then I highly suggest you seek it out. Though Netflix has taken if off it’s streaming selection. BUMMER! Let’s do this.
1. Bob’s Burgers: A book in which everything that could go wrong, DOES.
Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. While there are a few things that go right in this story, there are many more than just go to hell in a hand basket. The story is intense and paints a very vivid picture in your mind.
2. Linda Belcher: A book that showcases a positive outlook on life.
Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher. This is a personal memoir of sorts that Fisher published a few years back. She goes through her personal history, which is more than a little tragic and chaotic, with a spoonful of humor and sarcasm. Many times I was struck by the serious situations she ended up in during her lifetime only to laugh out loud while I was listening to the audiobook. (Which she reads herself.) Only someone who has come to terms with their life can reflect in such a manner.
3. Tina Belcher: A book that gave you secondhand embarrassment.
While this happens during tv or movies all the time to me. It rarely happens during reading. Usually because I start skimming. But I’m gonna go with Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan because I thought the character was dumb and her decisions and dialogue made me cringe.
4. Gene Belcher: A book you got easily distracted from.
Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver. This book was boring, lacked character development and also didn’t stay true to original television characters. I struggled to get through this book.
5. Louise Belcher: A book with crazy adventures.
Lost & Found by Katrina Leno. The two main characters are pen pals and just decide randomly to both head to Austin, Texas for reasons and they might as well meet up there. It was a fun adventure and I loved the book.
I don’t know who has seen this show and who hasn’t. So if you have watched Bob’s Burgers before, consider yourself tagged!
I hope you enjoyed this short but fun tag. If you love Bob’s Burgers please leave me a fun comment below because I’d love to chat. Have a thrilling Thursday!
