Hey everyone! Merry Christmas!
Okay, not going to lie, I am not a fan of Christmas. Well, at least this year. Why, you ask? I don’t know. But well, seeing all the tens and hundreds of Christmas themed posts on my reader this year annoyed me. Boo.
But anyway, me not liking Christmas this year doesn’t mean I shouldn’t bring some nice content for y’all to enjoy today! So, today I’ll be doing the Bookish Christmas Tag, and I was tagged for this by Marta @The Monogamist Reader. You should give her a follow since she has an amazing blog, which is actually perfect for all the bookish news you need!
I also did this last year, but I have read over 90 books since then, so I decided to give it a go! You can check last year’s post out here.
This tag was created by Callum McLaughlin.
Let’s get to the tag!
🎄Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day.🎄
My answer for this has to be The Faraway Tree, since it was actually my first favourite book, and I have reread it countless times! I remember my mum scolding me to stop reading it and start reading something else haha.
🎄The Ghost of Christmas Past: Is there a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?🎄
Not really. I mean I did revisit Harry Potter every year around this time of the year, but I don’t feel like it this year (See, I told you, not in the festive mood!), so well, idk anymore.
🎄Christmas Tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry.🎄
I am not really sure about this one, because I generally do not like the second part of book series. Not as much as the first part at least. I swear it’s a pattern- it’s like the authors are on a high and are like oh, whatever I write it’s gonna sell, so Imma just write crap. I mean Harry Potter #2 (Chamber of Secrets)- it’s bad, Good Girl, Bad Blood- not as good as A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, One of Us is Next- not as good as One of Us is Lying, Catching Fire- not as good as The Hunger Games! See, it’s a pattern, so this question is a no-answer-one for me.
🎄Friends and Family: Name a book with fantastic characters.🎄
I am going to have to go with The Art of Running Away by Sabrina Kleckner. I read this one for a blog tour, but I loved it all the same!
🎄Decorations: Name a book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves. 🎄
I personally love all the covers of Karen M. McManus’ novels- the UK Covers, the white ones with the title in some colour, and I hope to own all of them one day- I just have like two right now, but one day! All of them lined up together would look Suh-weet!
🎄Christmas Cards: Name a book that carries a great message.🎄
Loveless is my choice here. I am all for having a happily ever after, but not without true friends!
🎄Ice and Snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but which ultimately left you feeling cold.🎄
What’s Not to Love has one of my favourite tropes- Enemies to Lovers, and yet I ended up not loving it 😦
🎄Christmas Lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end.🎄
Winter, the final book in the Lunar Chronicles quartet, is a whopping 825 pages long, but I still loved it, and it was pretty great actually!
🎄Mince Pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying.🎄
Hmmm…. pretty much every book by Kasie West, I suppose. She writes books that are quick, sweet and satisfying!
🎄Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?🎄
There are oh, so many! At least one book by Karen M. McManus, You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson, Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne etc.
🎄Spreading the Festive Cheer: Tag some friends to help spread the festive bookish love.🎄
I am literally doing it on Christmas, so I am not tagging anyone. But, feel free to do it if you wish and don’t forget to pingback to me, so I can see your answers!
Have a merry Christmas y’all!
