Festive Christmas Book Tag! – Blogmas Day 12

Hello everyone! I saw this fun little book tag and thought I’d join in!

I haven’t done a book tag in ages, and I can’t remember where I saw it originally but I did find out that this tag was created by Girl Reading on YouTube. I wasn’t tagged for this but I’m doing it anyway! I also don’t

Here we go!


FESTIVE CHRISTMAS TAG QUESTIONS β™‘
1) A fictional family you would like to spend Christmas dinner with?

Hmmm, I think I would have to go with Celaena’s squad from Sarah J. Maas’ Empire of Storms. I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t say who’s all attending but I think that would just be a really good group to hang out with for a meal!

2) A bookish item you would like to receive as a gift?

Oh Barnes and Noble gift card for sure.

3) A fictional character you think would make a perfect Christmas elf?

I am going to pick Iko from Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles series. She’d have a blast getting everyone’s gifts and seeing their faces light up when they open it.

4) Match a book to it’s perfect Christmas song.

I’m going to pick Last Christmas for Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Again, spoilers are being avoided but if you’ve read this, you know why I gave this one to Mare.

5) Bah Humbug. A book or fictional character you’ve been disappointed in and should be put on the naughty list?

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. I didn’t enjoy it very much and I had huge expectations for it as I had loved the first book in the series, The Queen of the Tearling. I’m waiting for the third book to become available at the library to read it but I’m going in with low expectations.

6) A book or a fictional character you think deserves more love and appreciation and deserve to be put on the nice list?

I’m going to go way back and put Sansa Stark from the Game of Throne series by George R. R. Martin for this one. I think she’s getting a lot more credit now but when the series was first appearing on television, she was getting a lot of criticism. I’ve always enjoyed Sansa and admired her strength and resilience so she definitely deserves to be on the nice list!

7) Red, Gold and Green. A book cover that has a wonderfully Christmasy feel to it.

Madeline

I couldn’t really think of one at first for this one. Then, somehow the book I thought of was Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans. Maybe my mom read this to me around the holiday season when I was little? I’m not sure but I’m just going to go with this one!

8) A book or series you love so much, you want everyone to find under their Christmas tree this year so they can read it and love it too?

I have two for this question. I think everyone under the sun has already read this one but it’s A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Everyone already seems to have read the first book of the series A Court of Thorns and Roses, but this one was way better.

The other book is the “Hamiltome” as fans lovingly call it. I’m sure plenty of people have already read this one, especially because fans are that hardcore, but Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter was absolutely amazing. It was so nice seeing this book that goes into the making of the musical Hamilton. It definitely helped me appreciate the musical that much more when I finally saw it on stage!


And that’s my festive book tag! I don’t particularly have anyone to tag but if you want to do this tag go for it and then let me know so I can read it! πŸ™‚ You can also feel free to let me know what your answers would be in the comments if you’d like.

Thanks for reading!
