I’m in the Christmas spirit and I’ve been wanting to do some Christmas book tags. So today I’m doing the Festive Christmas Book Tag. Let’s just dive in!
The creator of this tag is Kate @ GirlReading
1. A fictional family you would like to spend Christmas dinner with.
The Covey girls from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – Are you kidding me? Lara Jean would be baking so many baked goods and Kitty would have me cracking up. This would be a great Christmas dinner.
2. A bookish item you would like to recieve as a gift.
I’d love a book embosser so that I could emboss the inside of all my books to say ‘Rachael’s Library’. I know that people who like their books in perfect condition probably hate this idea but I love it! It’s personal and it feels like they belong in my own library.
3. A fictional character you think would make a perfect Christmas elf.
This is an odd one because I characterize an elf as a helper and there are a ton of characters who help each other out. So I guess I’ll go with Iko from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. She would do anything for Cinder!
4. Match a book to it’s perfect Christmas song.
Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar and Santa Baby go hand in hand. I feel like in the lyrics of Santa Baby, a lot is being asked for. Expensive things that only the characters from Gossip Girl might be able to afford.
5. Bah Humbug! A book or fictional character you’ve been disappointed in and should be put on the naughty list.
I think my most disappointing read of the year was the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. Everyone raves about this series but I just didn’t love it. The characters annoyed me and I wasn’t that interested in the story itself.
6. A book or a fictional character you think deserves more love and appreciation and deserves to be put on the nice list.
Though a lot of people love Kaz Brekker, he probably wouldn’t be on Santa’s nice list, but he totally deserves to be!
7. Red, Gold and Green. A book that has a wonderfully Christmas feel to it.
What Light by Jay Asher – The cover itself just sings Christmas but it also helped put me in the Christmas spirit when I read it.
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.
The Arc of a Scythe series by Neal Shusterman – My favorite books of the year, and actually my favorite books of all time! Everyone should read this series and then we can all talk about it until The Toll is finally released (that’s the 3rd book in the series).
