12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

Merry Christmas! Just another short book tag for Christmas day, and because it’s the start of the 12 days of Christmas for many people, I decided that the 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag was probably a good way to go. I found the link and idea for this book tag on Comfort Reads Book Blog but the original tag was created by LizzieLovesBooks over on YouTube.

1. A Partridge in a pear tree: Favourite Stand-Alone Book?

This is actually really difficult for me! I have read a lot of stand-alone books. From the books I read this year, probably The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary, maybe? I don’t know there’s so many! Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall is also one of my favourite books of all times – I used to talk about it a lot but I haven’t in a long time, so I will choose that one!

You can purchase Under Rose Tainted Skies: here

2. Two Turtle Doves: Fictional OTP/Favourite Ship?

I’ve recently reread A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas and Feyre and Rhysand are the only couple I can think of for this question! They are perfect though.

3.Three French Hens: Favourite Trilogy?

I can’t think of one now that really stands out to me as being a favourite trilogy, however when I was younger I loved the Angel trilogy by L.A. Weatherly and the Dead Beautiful trilogy by Yvonne Woon. They were the first series I remember actively, impatiently waiting for the next books to come out.

You can purchase Angel: here

4. Four Calling Birds: Favourite Fictional Beast/Creature?

I am terrible at remember creatures and beasts from books – especially what they’re called. As I haven’t read fantasy much lately, I have no hope of remembering any so I am going to skip this one!

5. Five Golden Rings: Show 5 Golden Books

6. Six Geese a Laying: Rotten egg- What’s your least favourite book?

I don’t want to pick The Maze Runner again; so I am going to go with Animal Farm by George Orwell. Now – I really didn’t like it when I read it, and rated it very low. However, I had to read it for school and it is one that I would love to revisit to see if I can appreciate it, out of school and now that I am older and can probably (hopefully) understand the concepts a little more.

7. Seven Swans a Swimming: Show a Book with Water on the Cover

This took me ages to find one! Do you know of any others with water on the cover?

8. Eight Maids a Milking: What fictional food do you wish you could taste?

I’m doing well today… I’m having the same problem as the beasts! I just forget everything once I have read it! I will say though that I wish I could enhance my taste buds like in A Court of Mist and Fury when they discuss how being fae means that they can taste differently.

9. Nine Ladies Dancing: Favourite dance between two characters?

I don’t know if this is what is being asked… but I love the scene at the beginning of Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare when Cordelia and James are dancing. Even though this is a heartbreaking scene, I still love the way it is written and all of the emotions that are conveyed within.

You can purchase Chain of Gold: here

10. Ten Lords a Leaping: Favourite Book-To-Movie-Adaptation?

An extremely unpopular opinion but I love The Mortal Instruments film, I still watch it now. It definitely wasn’t a perfect adaptation but it is still my favourite.

11. Eleven Pipers Piping: Favourite Book-To-Movie-Adaptation Soundtrack?

I love the Twilight soundtrack – but I actually haven’t read the books, so I am unsure whether that counts but I think I am going to count it. It’s what introduced me to one of my favourite bands: Paramore!

12. Twelve Drummers Drumming: It’s the end of the song; what’s your favourite book ending?

Where the Rainbow Ends (or Love, Rosie) by Cecelia Ahern – the ending to that book was one of the most satisfying endings ever.

Merry Christmas, again! I hope you all have a lovely day. What did you get? I got a few books that I can’t wait to share with you either later on this month or early next year!
