The Jingle Bell Book Tag

This is my first holiday tag ever, so thanks to Stephanie from Adventures of a Bibliophile for tagging me. Hopefully I’ll get to do a couple more of these over the month, and get my blog a little bit more into the blogmas spirit. Here we go…

“All I Want For Christmas Is You…” – What book do you want to see under the Christmas Tree?

I’ve had my eye on Lauren Graham’s new book, Talking as Fast as I Can, and Hannah Hart’s memoir Buffering. I know that’s two books, but they’re on a similar theme, so I think it’s appropriate.

“Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time…” –  What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?

I’m going to cheat again slightly, because I read the Imperial Radch trilogy earlier this year, and I don’t know if I can pick just one out of the three. This is probably the best sci-fi series I’ve read, and I recommend it to anyone who likes sci-fi.

Elf – What book unleashes your inner child?

Honestly, talking about any book or series that I read as a child unleashes a bit of my inner child. But I think Harry Potter has always been a big one for me, since it was such a big part of my childhood and teenage years.

“It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” – Which book has most festive look to it?

This may not be a traditionally holiday-oriented choice, but my leather-bound copy of Wuthering Heights looks pretty festive, in my opinion.

The Grinch – Your favourite villain…

I really don’t know if I can answer this, since I’m the kind of person who really hates villains, and goes through the whole book getting really anxious about why the villain is doing all of the things they’re doing. Maybe I’ll just pick Iago from Othello, since I was kind of partial to how often he broke the fourth wall.

The Holiday – Name your favourite TWO couples…

Claire and Jamie from Outlander and Simon and Baz from Carry On.

What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?

I’m reading a really great historical fiction book at the moment, called These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly, which I would definitely recommend. I would also buy it for everyone if I could.

I would like to tag Shley from Cats and Candy, and anyone else who would like to do this tag as well.

Hopefully you enjoyed this. It was hard to think of my favorites, but I still enjoyed it.
