The holidays are always such a festive and nice time. Since I am on break now, I’ve been trying to do all things Christmas to get ready for the holidays. Therefore, this tag is perfect!
I was tagged by Jenna over at Bookmark Your Thoughts. Click on the link to go to her blog and check out all of her great answers for this tag.
I’d also like to give credit to the original creator of this book tag, Ashley at Falling Down The Book Hole.
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 read To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee during my freshman year of high school and I haven’t forgotten about it since.
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?
To be honest, I’m a little confused what this question is asking for, so I’m just going to say Johnny and Owen from A Prayer For Owen Meany because their friendship was unbreakable.
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 have to go with The Infernal Devices Trilogy by Cassandra Clare. I first read these books when I was in middle school and I couldn’t put them down.
Also, I heard that she is writing a spinoff series about Will and Tessa’s children and I can’t wait!
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?
I know saying Harry Potter may be a cliche answer, but I have to because it’s true.
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?
This one is hard because I’ve never really thought about it. I guess I’ll say Captain Hook from Peter Pan because he seems like a classic and I like pirates.
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?
Other than Hogwarts, I would say The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern because everything felt so dark and magical. I felt like I was in the circus while reading this book.
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?
Dustfinger’s ferret, Gwin, in Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
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 have to copy Ashley and Jenna’s answer for this one as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. I can’t think of any other book that puts sweets on such a huge scale.
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?
Hermione Granger because of how intelligent, brave, and kind she is. Hermione will always be a strong female role model to me.
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: ten lords a leaping.
HOW ABOUT YOUR FAVOURITE LEADING LAD?
I think Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices will always be my favorite romantic lead. However, in terms of character development, Owen from A Prayer For Owen Meany is such a good character.
On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: eleven pipers piping.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK OR BOOKISH THING WITH MUSICAL INFLUENCE? (IT CAN BE ABOUT MUSIC, REFERENCE MUSIC A LOT ETC.)
This one’s really hard….. but Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell could probably fit the bill. Park gives Eleanor his favorite music on cassette tapes and the bands are what they bond over on the bus. This was a really cute book.
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?
Definitely the Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I could go on and on about how good this book was, but if you want to read my full thoughts, then here is the link to my book review of it.
