Hello my friends! It’s the month of December (obviously) and you all know it’s a month of festivities and of course, holidays and Christmas. So I’m here today with a holiday-themed tag that I’ve been spotting around the blogosphere here and there. I was tagged by Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much; thank you so much, lovely! If you’re not already following this wonderful lady, what are you waiting for? (Not my wrath, I hope. I can be very fierce when I want to be. Just kidding! Kind of. :P) But yes, point is, you should go check out Catia’s blog right away, for she is absolutely lovely and her blog is fabulous. Just take my word for it—or even better, find out for yourself!
Alright, so… shall we go on to the tag? Why yes, we shall. 😉
1. Do you have a favorite winter read?
Hmm… I think I’m going to have to go with Catia on this one and choose My True Love Gave To Me by various authors, a collection of short stories which I find to be perfect for this time of year. Which reminds me, better get my review up for that sometime this month! I read it earlier this year, but have been waiting to post the review for the perfect time.
2. Find a book with blue on the cover!
Why only oneeeeee?! It was a tough choice—seriously, there are a lot more covers with blue on the cover than I thought there would be—but I finally decided to go with Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. It’s not fully blue, but I felt like it went well with the whole winter season that is linked with the month of December. 😉
3. Find a book you’d use as the star on a Christmas tree!
I’m not sure if we’re supposed to have read the book for this question…? But in any case, I’m going with a book on my TBR; The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider! Except for the blue of the title, the cover is a really bright yellow, and even though I don’t know if the story within its pages reflect that, but it seems to me that this is a suitable choice! I actually currently have a copy of this from the library, and I am planning on reading it sometime soon (hopefully).
4. Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for a winter vacation!
I’m trying to be creative and not come up with the answer you guys should all know is coming, but of course I fail; a trip to Hogsmeade would be wonderful for a vacation…and maybe while we’re at it, a trip to Hogwarts! 😛 It sounds like the perfect place to me; Butterbeer and wizard sweets, inns and all sorts of fun. What’s not to like?
5. Pick one fictional character you’d take with you on your winter vacation!
I’ve held in my angsty dilemma so far, but…ALL THESE ‘ONE’ QUESTIONS WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME. I swear, I know they will be. You guys all know by now how terrible I am with choosing only one thing as an answer, right? I kind of rant about this for basically any book tag I do because THEY NEVER WANT MORE THAN ONE. Whyyyyyyy. Okay, I’m sorry. I’ve managed to do so so far, so…*Deep breath* I don’t suppose I could bring along my whole list of book boyfriends, now can I? (Although, now that I think of it, I doubt that would go over too well between all the guys…)
Alright, so I’ve decided to go with Captain Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles series! It was hard to choose, I’m telling you, but finally I thought, why not? Captain Thorne ensnared me with his boyish charms and also, he’s a lot of fun to have around! My winter vacation would definitely not be boring, that’s for sure.
6. Name one book on your wish list this year!
Oh god. *Pulls out fancy scroll that goes all the way to the ground* The agony. THE AGONY.
Alright, does… “Nearly every book on my TBR” count as an answer? Because I swear that’s all I have. LOL, okay fine, I’ll be serious. I’m going to go with Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare! It releases sometime this upcoming year—yay!! I know some people are rolling their eyes, like, “Geez, another Shadowhunter-themed book?” but not me! I’d gobble up basically anything Clare writes, and I have no complaints if it has to do with Shadowhunters. 😉
7. Favorite holiday drink, treat, & movie?
Ah, the real deal! The most important questions here. Okay, folks. Let’s do this.
Favorite holiday drink: Hot chocolate! Yep, I’m a pair of old and boring socks. But sometimes the traditional way is best, no? Deal with it.
Favorite treat.. hmm… how about, ‘anything with chocolate?’ I’m not even joking right now… Mmm, chocolate. I’m hungry now. I shall make you guys hungry too with the picture below! Mwa-ha-ha. I also really like candy canes. 😉
And finally, favorite holiday movie… hmm, although there are tons of them out there, I can choose nothing other than of course the classic Home Alone! My only peeve is: Macaulay Culkin, if only you stayed as adorable as you were back then! Ah, some people age worse than others, I guess.
8. Who do you tag?
Let us share the holiday spirit! I’m going to tag a bunch of you to start off, but although I’d love to tag you all, I doubt I’d have the space (or time) to do so without us being here for another 20 years! BUT PLEASE.
