I was tagged to do the Tis’ the Season Book Tag by four lovely ladies: Loreva from La Book Dreamer, Heather from The Sassy Book Geek, Jessica from The Awkward Book Blogger, and Michelle from Book Adventures. These four are all absolutely fantastic book bloggers, so please make sure you head over and check out all of their blogs! 😀
1. Do you have a favorite winter read?
For the last few years, my favorite winter reads have been the Sherlock Holmes short stories. They are the perfect stories to read while curled up inside on a cold day, and they always put me in mind of the winter season. Reading these stories definitely gives me the warm fuzzies! This year specifically, I have been reading Vicious by V.E. Schwab (along with Heather!) and The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak, and I have been loving both; I would definitely have to add these to my list of favorite winter reads!
2. Find a book with blue on the cover.
I have a huge amount of books with blue on the cover, so this was a difficult one to narrow down! I ended up picking two of my favorite book covers: Jackaby by William Ritter and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doer. These are two of the most beautiful books in my collection; I completely adore these covers. I have not yet read All the Light We Cannot See, but I can recommend Jackaby as a fantastic winter read!
3. Find a book you’d use as the star on a Christmas tree.
I would probably choose I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. I love this cover so much, and the design is very star-like. This would look great on top of a tree! A close second would be my Doctor Who leather bound collection. It’s just the greatest thing ever! Plus my tree is already covered in Doctor Who ornaments, so it would match perfectly! 😀
4. Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for a winter vacation.
I think you guys all probably know my answer to this one already! Narnia, of course! 😀
5. Pick one fictional character you’d take with you on your vacation.
I’ve noticed that I tend to pick the same fictional characters for all tag questions like this, so I think I’ll change it up this time and say Neville Longbottom! He’s been one of my favorite literary characters even since I was a kid, and I totally want him to be my best friend. So I’d definitely love to take him on my winter vacation to Narnia; I think he’d like it there! 🙂
6. Name one book on your wish list this year.
I am a bit late with this post, so Christmas is already over and I have already opened all my bookish gifts. However, one book that was at the very top of my wish list this year was A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R.R. Martin, and I did find that under the tree on Christmas day! 😀
7. Favorite holiday drink, treat, & movie.
Drink: Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha
Treat: Peppermint Bark
Movie: It’s a Wonderful Life
I’ve been doing a lot of tags lately, so I’m not going to tag anyone specific. Instead, I tag everyone! If you do this tag, make sure to post the link in the comments so I can check out your answers! 😀
Happy Holidays, everyone!
