MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! ❤ It is finally Christmas, and to get into the spirit, I found the perfect book tag that I happened to be tagged in by Summer @ XingSings. Thank you so much! Guys, you should seriously go visit her blog! It’s lovely and Summer is simply wonderful. So go! Give her some love. 🙂
And now, without further ado… the 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag!
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 favourite stand alone?
You guys all know how terrible I am with these kind of questions! Truly, I can’t think of simply one book for this question—I CAN’T CHOOSE BETWEEN MY (non-existant) CHILDREN.
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?
Technically speaking it doesn’t make sense to have more than one ‘one true pairing’/OTP, because, well, you know, it’s your ONE true pairing… but you guys all know life would not be the same without more than one OTP—THERE ARE JUST SO MANY CUTE COUPLES. Not that I’m complaining.
BUT. Point is, we would be here until next Christmas if I tried to name all of my OTPs, so I’ll just go with one of the (more recent? I don’t even know anymore, all I know is that I love it)—Kaz and Inej from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I HAVEN’T FANGIRLED ENOUGH ABOUT THIS BOOK. Seriously, Kaz and Inej are so perfect together!! ❤
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?
I think by now I’ve spotlighted this trilogy in a lot of my tags, but I’ve decided to go with it once again, because it is simply fabulous—and I know most of you will agree! The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare is absolutely amazing, and even though I’m pretty biased by my love of anything Cassandra Clare, I kid you not when I tell you that. A beautiful love triangle, an intricate plot set in the Victorian Era. What more can you ask for?
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 numbers are endless! There are so many series I’ve read and loved, but this time I’m choosing the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. This epic fantasy series is just… gosh, I have no words. Seriously, I’m at a loss as what to say because you can’t just describe this series with a couple of words! 😉 It’s really something. ❤
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?
Oh my gosh this answer came immediately to me! (Although there were many for me to choose from, don’t get me wrong, there are so many great villains/antagonists out there.) I’m going to go with Levana from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I absolutely loved how complex (albeit disturbing) her character is, and she really stood out to me.
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?
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, hands down! Seriously, the HP world is vast, imaginative and simply wonderful—I can’t be the only one still waiting for my Hogwarts letter, right? 😛
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?
To be honest I can’t really think of one off the top of my head..! I’ll get back to this one… maybe… one day.
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?
Eh…I’m trying to think of something other than Harry Potter… but not really succeeding. I mean, there were feasts, and there’s Butterbeer, so yeah. I had been attempting to choose different answers for each question, but what can I do?
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?
Ooh, this one’s hard—there’s simply so many too choose from! I’m tempted to name off a couple of the characters in Six of Crows, but to change up my answers a bit more I’m going to go with Adelina from The Young Elites by Marie Lu. She may not be a perfect angel, and her thoughts and actions are not always with the most innocent of intentions, but it is undeniable that she is one kickass character!
ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING.
How about your favourite leading lad?
Agh. This one’s kind of hard to choose! But I’m going to go with Percy from the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. I would also say Leo from the spinoff series Heroes of Olympus, but since I’ve spent more time with Percy, I’ll go with him. (They’re both great though!) Percy will always be remembered! (AKA Logan Lerman
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.)
I haven’t mentioned this book much (or at all) in my book tags, but it’s perfect for this question! Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell features two characters who bond over listening to music (and reading comics). Just look at the cover! Uh, yeah, it’s kind of telling, don’t you think?
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?
Haha nope! No way can I answer this question. I’ve reached my quota of choosing just one book for these questions, LOL. I’m planning on making a post with my favourite reads of 2015 though, so if you’re interested be sure to look out for that!
Once again, Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope you guys are all having (or have had) a wonderful Christmas, or a wonderful holiday/celebration (in case you celebrate something else)! Feel free to tell me whatever thoughts you may have below. 😉 I’m not tagging anyone for this, but if you want to do it, let me know and I’d love to tag you!! ❤
