Book Tag | The Christmas Special ‘Bookish Christmas Tag’

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 byΒ Callum McLaughlin.

Let’s get to the tag!

πŸŽ„Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day.πŸŽ„

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.

πŸŽ„The Ghost of Christmas Past: Is there a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?πŸŽ„

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.

πŸŽ„Christmas Tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry.πŸŽ„

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.

πŸŽ„Friends and Family: Name a book with fantastic characters.πŸŽ„

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!

πŸŽ„Decorations: Name a book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves.Β πŸŽ„

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!

πŸŽ„Christmas Cards: Name a book that carries a great message.πŸŽ„

Loveless is my choice here. I am all for having a happily ever after, but not without true friends!

πŸŽ„Ice and Snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but which ultimately left you feeling cold.πŸŽ„

What’s Not to Love has one of my favourite tropes- Enemies to Lovers, and yet I ended up not loving it 😦

πŸŽ„Christmas Lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end.πŸŽ„

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!

πŸŽ„Mince Pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying.πŸŽ„

Hmmm…. pretty much every book by Kasie West, I suppose. She writes books that are quick, sweet and satisfying!

πŸŽ„Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?πŸŽ„

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.

πŸŽ„Spreading the Festive Cheer: Tag some friends to help spread the festive bookish love.πŸŽ„

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!

  1. The Faraway Tree is my childhood favourite too! It was the first chapter book I read! And The Harry Potter series is just a huge chunk of my life πŸ˜‚ so can’t agree with The Chamber of Secrets.
    I get what you mean by not being in the Christmas spirit – personally, after those exams, I don’t feel like celebrating anything.
