The Christmas Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag

Can you believe we’re almost halfway through December?! I felt like this year dragged on for SO long until October … and then the last couple of months just FLEW by. Even with 2020 being a unique kind of year, I hope you all have been able to find find some fun moments and little bits of joy. I MAY be naive, but I have a GOOD feeling about next year *fingers crossed*!

Once again, I found a super fun tag on Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books blog … The Christmas Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag! I LOVE scavenger hunts! They’re so exciting to do! I tried my best to pick books from my bookshelves to make it feel more like a scavenger hunt; the rest I did an electronic scavenger hunt!

A book set during Christmas

Forever Wild by K.A. Tucker

I ADORE Tucker’s Wild series … it’s EASILY my favourite book series I’ve read this year. Forever Wild was a beautiful way to end this series (though I could’ve honestly had so many more books in this series and NOT get bored), with a strong focus on family and love. A major part of the book takes place during the holidays, and the Christmas vibes in Calla and Jonah’s adorable cabin home is so wholesome! I really want to do a cabin retreat one winter.

Five cold words

A red and green book cover

Wrapped Up in You by Talia Hibbert

Kristin mentions this in her list too, but I can’t help but copy. I’m currently reading this at the moment and it’s pretty cute. And honestly, how much more Christmasy of a cover can you get?! It’s red and green — has snowflakes all over the cover — and has ribbon on it. It’s definitely a good choice for this prompt!

A character with a festive name

The Ten Thousand Doors of January By Alix E. Harrow

January, the main character, has a very festive name in my opinion. Even though the holidays end in December, I still get those Christmas and holiday spirit vibes early January. And then there’s also New Years, which makes January feel like the month of new beginnings and a fresh start. Also … this is a really good book, by the way.

A festive object

A Princess for Christmas by Jenny Holiday

Seeing a Christmas wreath and presents on a book cover definitely says festive object in my personal opinion. Another book I meant to read this month but didn’t get around to doing … I had to stop buying so many books … MAYBE I can buy it after Christmas if I get some Christmas money!

A book with baking in it

Meet Me at the Cupcake CafÉ by Jenny Colgan

I haven’t read this series … though I really want to. It sounds really adorable! The title SEEMS to indicate that there is baking in this book, and the synopsis talks about how the main character can bakes … so I’m going to safely assume there’s baking in this book!

A book cover with a wintery scene

The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss

This cover has such adorable Christmas and wintery vibes! I haven’t read it but a lot of people seem to have good opinions on it. Even though it’ll be AFTER Christmas, I’m hoping to read this early on in the new year!

A book cover with silver and gold

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

This is my favourite cover edition for Norse Mythology! It’s absolutely gorgeous! The spin is also gold, which is STUNNING on my bookshelf! I started this book but didn’t get around to finishing it. It’s actually good — I just wasn’t feeling this genre at the time. I’m hoping to finish it before the end of the year though!

A book that was a gift

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

My AMAZING partner bought me this for Valentine’s Day this year … and I still haven’t read it … UGH! I’m the worst! I’ve just been really into coming of age and romance this year for some odd reason … probably because I know they end happy and this year is NOT the year to read sad books (for me, anyways). I do plan to read this EARLY 2021. I’m already lucky enough to not have had anything spoiled for me and I don’t want that to happen!

A title that describes how Christmas shopping feels

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

I have NO idea what this book is about. I legit typed “Online” into the Goodreads search bar and this was the first book that came up. As much as I wanted to go into stores, I’ve been trying to do my part with stopping the spread of COVID-19. And in order to see my parents, I need to be really cautious. So I’ve done MOST of my shopping online this year … *sigh* … I actually love gift shopping, so it kind of sucked not being able to go into places this year. Here’s to next year!

  1. I definitely can’t believe we’re halfway through December! Also! I just finished Take a Hint, Dani Brown so I am super in the mood for more of Talia Hibbert’s work. I’m definitely adding Wrapped Up in You to my tbr. It looks like so much fun!! Also I love January too – although, the character’s name now reminds me of January from Beach Read.
