Hi everyone! How are you in this lovely Wednesday?! I hope you’re having a great beginning of the week so far. Obviously, kind of busy, since… Christmas is only TWO days away, yay!
I thought I’d get a head start on the Christmas celebrations, and come to you today with a little book tag! Thanks to one of the sweetest girl I’ve met thanks to the book blogging community, Kat @ Life & Other Disasters, I will spread some Christmas joy! If you’re not into that, well, no worries…because I will be talking about what we ALL love… BOOKS, obviously.
1. ANTICIPATION 🎄 The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating?
If you don’t know that yet, I LOVE all of Lauren Oliver’s books. I found out only recently that she’s writing what sounds like another FANTASTIC book, Replica coming out next September. Do I really need to say how impatient I am for this?!
2. Christmas Songs & Carols 🎶 What book or author can you not help but sing its praises?
Hm, I think I will go with Tahereh Mafi for that one, because what kind of INCREDIBLE writing is that. I will never get over how beautiful it is, and how it makes me FEEL things. I know it’s not the kind of writing everyone loves, but I really loved it. On great, and different writing, I could go with Moïra Fowley-Doyle, too. I read her debut a few weeks ago, and I’m still not over it. So poetic, so wonderfully weird.
3. Gingerbread Houses 🏡 What book or series has wonderful world building?
I think that Scott Westerfeld did a pretty incredible job with the Uglies series. But maybe it’s because it’s one of the first dystopian books I’ve read, that I’m saying that. Anyways, I just really love the world he imagined and created, with all the different layers of society and all the secrets. It was really, REALLY good.
4. A Christmas Carol 🎵 Favorite classic or one that you want to read?
Okay, I will admit it, I’m not a classics reader, AT ALL. I haven’t read many classics, so I struggled a while to answer that question. I think I will go with Lord of The Flies by William Golding because I remember it kind of left a mark on me after reading it. That was so long ago, though!
5. Christmas Sweets 🍬 What book would you love to receive for Christmas?
Oh, there are SO many books I want, and if you’d like to see a couple of them, included with some other gifts I would love to receive this Christmas, check out my yesterday post about gifts I’d love to have! However, to answer this question anyway, I think right now I would love to receive The Summer of Chasing Mermaids. Because it sounds so wonderful, and I want to think about summer, ahah!
6. Candles in the Window 🕯 What book gives you that warm fuzzy feeling?
Yes, I am a big reader of contemporary romances, because I LOVE that warm fuzzy feeling that usually goes with reading a book like Anna and The French Kiss. No, I won’t go with that one, and I will choose The Geography of You and Me. Jennifer E. Smith is a great writer of contemporary, and I love reading her books, they are just so SWEET.
7. Christmas Trees & Decorations ✨ What are some of your favorite book covers?
Oh, so many book covers I love to pat forever. Does that make me weird?! On the top of my head right now, I would show you these three GORGEOUS book covers, you can’t help but fall in love with.
8. Christmas Joy 🎈 What are some of your favorite things about Christmas And/Or some of your favorite Christmas memories?
There are so many things I love about Christmas. Being with family. Cooking and, most of all, EATING. Giving out presents and receiving them a little bit, too. I LOVE that time of the year!
