Hi everyone, I hope you are having an amazing day and staying safe. I’ve been looking for a good Christmas Tag to get me in the festive spirit and I found this one thanks to Jess from Comfort Reads and her A Guide To Blogmas + 30 Post Ideas (For Book Bloggers) post.
This tag was originally created by Callum over at Callum McLaughlin.
Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day.
Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson. Jacqueline Wilson was my favorite childhood author and this is my favorite book of hers and one I plan on keeping on my shelves for a long time to come. I also 100% believe this is where my love of historical fiction and the Victorian era came from.
The ghost of Christmas past: Is there a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?
There isn’t a specific book that I always read at this time of the year but I have found that I am more drawn to epic fantasies and historical fiction. I’m currently rereading The Hobbit and it really is the perfect cosy book for this time of year.
Christmas tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry.
The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. While The Infernal Devices will always be my favorite, you can’t deny that her writing style and storytelling gets better and better with each book.
Friends and family: Name a book with fantastic characters.
There are so many but I really loved Blue and her Raven Boys.
Decorations: Name a book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves.
There are so many but these are some of my current favorites.
Christmas cards: Name a book that carries a great message.
I don’t think I really need to explain the importance of us white readers picking up Why I’m No Long Talking to White People about Race by Reno Eddo-Lodge.
Ice and snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but which ultimately left you feeling cold.
Allegiant by Veronica Ruth definitely left me feeling cold. While the Divergent trilogy isn’t one of the better Dystopians of its time I still enjoyed the first two books but this book just felt full of bad decisions and the ending didn’t have that much of an emotional impact on me.
Christmas lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end.
The A Song of Ice and Fire series was one of the first big adult fantasy series I picked up and I was definitely intimidated by how long each book was but so glad that I read them as I really love the series so far and am forever hoping we get an end to it. One that will hopefully be more satisfying than the TV Shows ending.
Mince pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying.
I feel like I put this book down for a lot of these kinds of questions but I can’t help it I adored Anne of Green Gables way too much not to constantly showcase it.
Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid every time.
Spreading the festive cheer: Tag some friends to help spread the festive bookish love.
