Hope you’re doing well. How was your day?
I had to fast from 12a.m. to 4p.m. to have a blood test, eating afterwards never felt so good. I was so ravenous! I also finished most of my Christmas shopping, so all in all it’s been a successful day. 🙂
Today I’m going to be doing The 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag which was created by by Ashley @ Falling Down The Book Hole. My lovely friend Meg over at https://betweenthepages13.wordpress.com/ tagged me – thank you!
I hope you enjoy,
On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: a partridge in a pear tree.
The partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favorite stand alone?
I’ve mentioned this before, but The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: two turtle doves.
Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?
I’m going to have to go with Percy and Monty from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. Love them so much!
On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: Three French Hens.
In the spirit of threes, what is the best trilogy you have read?
The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. 100%.
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: four calling birds.
Since series usually consist of four or more books, what is your favourite series?
The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling for sure.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: five golden rings.
One ring to rule them all! Who is your Favorite Villain/Antagonist?
I’ve mentioned this before, but Lord Loss from The Demonata series by Darren Shan.
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: six geese a laying.
Creation is a beautiful thing. What is your favourite world/world-building?
My answer has to be Middle-Earth from The Lord of the Rings.
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: seven swans a swimming.
Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who’s your favourite animal sidekick?
I’m going to go with The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis for this one and say Aslan.
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: eight maids a milking.
Milk is so 18th century. Which book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level?
I’m going to agree with Meg’s answer and say Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. It doesn’t get anymore creative than that in my opinion!
On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: nine ladies dancing.
Dancing is just one skill of a Lady! Who is your favourite kickass female lead?
Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. She’s definitely kick ass and a brilliant female lead in my opinion
On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: ten lords a leaping.
How about your favourite leading lad?
Probably Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit. 🙂
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me: eleven pipes piping.
What is your favourite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)
There’s a book I want to put for this, but I can’t mention it’s name as it’s not been released yet. I’ve tried to think of another, but I can’t – sorry!
On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: 12 drummers drumming.
Drum roll please…what is your favourite read of this year?
This has to be The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. It has stolen my heart, I’ll be posting my review of it very soon. 🙂
What was your favourite read of 2017? I’d love to know in the comments. Hopefully you can give me some good recs to start off 2018 with. 🙂
