Hello beautiful people! Oh yes, another Christmas style book tag!
To be fair, it’s really hard to have time to complete these epic tags during the winter holidays. So yes, I’m totally still doing this!
Thank you so much Meghan @ Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews for tagging me in this! She’s an amazing blogger … and another fellow Canadian blogger like me! Her positive energy and great content are just a breath of fresh air. So please make sure to give her blog a visit!
The Jingle Bell Book Tag was created by Richard at The Humpo Show. Each of the questions are based on Christmas songs or movies.
“All I Want For Christmas Is You…” | What book do you want to see under the Christmas Tree?
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson ↠ Seriously, the book is about librarians who have magical abilities and help protect humanity … OBVIOUSLY I want this one. And lucky for me, I got it!
“Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time…” | What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?
If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley & Austun Siegemund-Broka ↠ Funny enough, this isn’t actually one of my 5 star reviews from this year (close though). But it’s honestly (no pun intended) one of the best books for me in 2019 … the characters and story are so memorable. I can’t wait for their new book releasing in 2020!
“It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” | Which book has most festive look to it?
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden ↠ Maybe I should say “winter” rather than “Christmas” look to it, but this was the first book I thought of. With the snow, the crisp night, the lit cabin and forest scenery, the cover just gives me this wholesome “festive” vibe (though I’ve heard it’s actually rather dark ha-ha).
Elf | What book unleashes your inner child?
Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne ↠ Not a REAL shocker ha-ha! But honestly, it’s a book that makes me reminiscence the beauty of childhood. From daydreaming to exploration, Milne’s novel just brings out that feeling even more (though I swear I still act like it most days ha-ha).
The Grinch | Your favourite villain…
Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling ↠ Yeah … broken record. But his development is just absolutely amazing to read. He’s so dark and willing to do anything to get what he wants. I prefer him in the books, since I find his character more sinister.
The Holiday | Name your favourite TWO couples…
Percy & Monty from the Montague Siblings series by Mackenzi Lee ↠ I have a NUMBER of favourite couples, but this one was the first to come to mind. I just their banter and ongoing passionate romance. Even though these two can drive one another mad, they love one another for who they are and are at one another’s side when it counts most.
What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?
Nocturnal by Wilder Poetry ↠ I know poetry isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this collection is absolutely stunning! The imagery captures the eye in the most incredible way, and the poems themselves are memorable. I think I also love how the poetry is there to help one when they really feel lost and afraid. Thus, I’d love to give you all a book that provides this for you.
Tag! You’re it!
Again … I would normally tag some people, but Christmas is over so I don’t want to tag people ha-ha! But feel free to give this a try!
