I hope you’re all doing well.
Although I’m not doing Blogmas this year, I didn’t want to give up the opportunity to do a Christmas themed book tag! With only just over a week until Christmas, writing up this post has definitely helped to put me in the Christmas spirit! The tag was created by the Booktuber GirlReading and you can check out the original video here: https://youtu.be/4-F6UWl9fCs.
I originally published this post on my friend Cerys’s blog. She’s doing Blogmas this year and for each day a different blogger is writing up a post for her. Here’s my original post if you’d like to view it: https://browsingforbooks.co.uk/blogmas/2018/07-2/. Also go and show Cerys’s blog some love, there are so many amazing Blogmas posts to read!
I hope you enjoy,
The Festive Christmas Book Tag:
1. A fictional family you would like to spend christmas dinner with?
The Weasleys. I bet Molly would make the BEST Christmas dinner. Also, can you imagine how fun it would be with Arthur making everyone play traditional muggle board games. I’d love to play a game of Monopoly or Cluedo with them all, while eating Fred and George’s sweets and wearing my knitted jumper with an A on the front of it! It would be so cosy and homely.
2. A bookish item you would like to receive as a gift?
Sting Replica from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I’ve wanted a replica of this sword for years to put up in my study. It looks so cool.
3. A fictional character you think would make a perfect christmas elf?
Can I say Dobby even though he’s a free elf?! I feel like he’d love helping out with the wrapping of presents… willingly of course, no socks needed!
4. Match a book to it’s perfect christmas song.
Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher – All I want for Christmas is you by Mariah Carey. If you know, you know.
5. Bah Humbug. A book or fictional character you’ve been disappointed in and should be put on the naughty list?
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Sorry not sorry. Unfortunately I wasn’t a fan of this book.
6. A book or a fictional character you think deserves more love and appreciation and deserve to be put on the nice list?
Kelton from Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman. I think he’s a brilliant, clever and underrated character. Sure he’s a little strange, but he was so interesting to read about and my favourite character in the book.
7. Red, Gold and Green. A book cover that has a wonderfully christmasy feel to it.
Some Kind of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher.
8. A book or series you love so much, you want everyone to find under their christmas tree this year so they can read it and love it too?
The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee. I adore her writing style, the Montague siblings and EVERYTHING about these two books. They’re so amazing and I would recommend them to everyone!
What fictional family would you choose to spend Christmas with and why? Let me know in the comments below! 😊
I tag anyone that wants to do this tag!
