*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog linkup hosted by The Broke and the Bookish*
Here in the United States, this is Thanksgiving week. On Thursday, families around the nation will be pausing to reflect on their blessings, watch some parades and some football, and gorge themselves silly on turkey, dressing, various forms of potatoes, cranberry salad, and pumpkin pie. Because nothing says, “Thanks, God!” like a carb-induced stupor 🙂
In honor of the upcoming holiday, I am dedicating this week’s Top Ten Tuesday to the fictional families I would most like to join for Thanksgiving. So, grab a plate, pile it high with all your favorite foods, and settle in for my dream invite list.
(Note: Since this is purely a hypothetical scenario anyway, I am not limiting myself to American families. We’ll just imagine that any British families I include took a trip across the pond to visit for the holiday, okay?)
Read my review of A Love Like Ours to meet Jake and his siblings.
Read my review of Married ‘Til Monday to meet the McKinley family.
Note: This family gets top priority as
myJames is one of the MacDonalds 🙂
Read my reviews of Five Days in Skye and London Tides to meet brothers
myJames and Ian. Their sister Serena’s story is due out next year.
I introduced the McKennas in this post on a Favorites Friday.
You can read why I love the Binder family so much here & there’s still time left to enter Cynthia Ruchti’s Holiday Cheer giveaway.
But… because I am so thankful for you, my dear readers, I am also giving away a copy of An Endless Christmas to one of you in hopes that you will fall in love with the Binders as I have.

I love the quote from Grandma Dodie ,”Your bra strap is sticking out under the door”. This sounds like a delightful read. I have never read any Cynthia Ruchti books but after reading your review I am adding this book to my to be read list. Thank you for the giveaway. I am already a blog follower.
Great! Thank you! 🙂
It was one of those moments when the character’s voice took over during the writing of that scene! 🙂
I think Grandma Dodie’s voice must have taken over a lot 😉

I’d definitely have the Weasleys around for dinner! It would be such a fun day. But I think Molly would take over the cooking, not that I’d complain because I imagine her cooking would be amazing.
Thanks for visiting my post 🙂
clean up would be easier with a bunch of wizards around 🙂
Aww! I really love your list of literary families. Great post! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving dear. 😀
