Hello! It is the first Christmas book tag of the year! And I am going with the classic Bookish Christmas Tag that I found on Meghan @ Whimsically Meghan. I am in such a Christmasy mood this year. I think last year was such a terrible year for everybody, so I never really got in the spirit. However, this year the Christmas spirit has hit me in full force!
Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day
I don’t have any copies from my childhood, however I have a few copies of The Brother’s Grimm tales and Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tales, because they remind me of my childhood. I can’t imagine ever getting rid of them, in fact I want to collect more copies of them.
The Ghost of Christmas Past: Is their a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?
It is not Christmas themed, but I tend to return to A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas around this time of year – in fact, I think I will be starting my reread very soon!
Christmas Tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry
I think the Shadowhunter series by Cassandra Clare gets better and bigger with every new series and book. Especially the more current day ones, I am still not over the ending for The Dark Artifices series!
Friends and Family: Name book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves
The Lovely War by Julie Berry or The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant – each one of these are beautiful and I have had both facing outwards on display on my bookshelves at one point or another.
Christmas Cards: Name a book that carries a great message
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, I love that book and try to read it every Christmas!
Ice and Snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but ultimately left you feeling cold
I wouldn’t say left me feeling cold, but I was expecting/hoping to enjoy Roman and Jewel by Dana L. Davis a little bit more than I did.
Christmas Lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – that one I was intimidated because of how loved it is, but it was so worth it and deserves all of the hype.
Mince Pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying
Most recently, The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox. It was such a cute romance that was similar to Parent Trap in that the twins swap places. And it was themed around a bakery shop and a bakery show, so extra sweet!
Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green, purely because it shows a little bit of what it is like to live with OCD and a skin picking disorder, and if you want to understand that a bit better, then that book is the one to read!
Spreading the Festive Cheer: Tag some friends to help spread the festive bookish love
Let me know if you decide to do this tag too! I’d love to see your answers. Also, let me know if you’re enjoying blogmas so far, and if there are any posts that you want to see from me!
