Merry Christmas! It is officially the 25th of December, and so as I have yet to get up this festive book tag, I thought that today was the perfect day to do just that. I’m very sorry for the short hiatus I spontaneously took recently, as I truly did not plan to stop posting at all, but as usual life just got in the way and got way too busy for me to juggle blogging as well. However, I am now back today with a tag that I just couldn’t resist doing to celebrate this magical time of year.
But nonetheless, here is the festive Christmas book tag!
Other than the obvious answer of the Weaslys, I would love to spend Christmas dinner with the ladies of 300 Fox Way from The Raven Cycle. It would be such a unique experience to see their own take on Christmas and the likely chaos involved with it, especially if the Raven Boys happened to stop by at some point!
I feel like this once again may be a pretty standard answer, but I would love to receive Hermione’s time turner as a gift. It would just be such an amazing item to own and to use whenever turning back time was required.
I can just imagine August from A Thousand Perfect Notes making the most perfect Christmas elf! She has such a positive spirit and desire to help people that the image of her skipping around, wrapping presents and just generally spreading festive cheer is not a hard one to conjure up!
This may be a little on-the-nose, but I just had to pick Let It Snow for both the book and the song. Not only is it one of my favourite Christmas songs, but this collection of three festive stories is one that I always love returning to every year during December, so I feel as though both of these are perfect for this time of year when the weather outside is frightful.
Without trying to give away any spoilers, Hideko from Warcross is one character who disappointed me with some of his actions towards the end of this sci-fi. Although I ordered his complex character, some of the things that were revealed to us about him at the end of this book make me think that he does deserve a place on the naughty list this year.
When My Heart Joins the Thousands by A. J. Steiger was one of my favourite books this year, and yet I haven’t heard anyone else even mention it! It is a beautiful story of friendship, love and individuality that touched my heart in so many ways that I would just love for more people to discover this gorgeous book that certainly deserves to be put on the nice list.
Although My True Love Gave To Me does not actually have either red or green on its cover, it is still by far the Christmasy book on my shelf with its gorgeous blue background and golden fairy lights. It truly does reflect all of the amazing festive stories that I always find myself rereading inside this book!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a book that I would wrap up and place under everyone’s Christmas tree if I could, because I would love for everyone to be able to discover the magic within this story. It is one of my favourite books, and one that is so beautifully crafted with unforgettable characters and stories that it really would be a gift I would love everyone to receive.
Do you agree with my answers? What books are you planning to read over Christmas? Have you read any of these – what did you think?
