We lookie here. Another Christmas book tag. I may love Christmas so festive book tags seemed like the perfect way to express that. I found this one through Jenniely, but it was originally from booktuber GirlReading.
It’s just so cool!
Get it? Cool? Cause winter is cold?
A fictional family you would like to spend Christmas dinner with?
Well this ones easy. The Weasleys of course. Does anyone else what to give them muggle gifts and watch as Arthur tries to steal everyone’s presents to figure out how they work and what the point of them is? Just me then?
A bookish item you would like to receive as a gift?
A fictional character you think would make a perfect Christmas elf?
Well this is easy. Pick a house elf. Any happy house elf. I know we all love Dobby (see gif below) but all the house elves at Hogwarts work to make the school look super festive.
Match a book to it’s perfect Christmas song.
Why was this so difficult? I mean, it was just so difficult. So I settled.
The book is To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers and the Song is Star to Follow by Trans Siberia Orchestra.
Bah Humbug. A book or fictional character you’ve been disappointed in and should be put on the naughty list?
John Farrell from the Postmortal. That guy was all kinds of screwed up. He made lots of bad life choices. And for a book about a guy with the potential to live forever, well. I still gave the book 4 stars though.
A book or a fictional character you think deserves more love and appreciation and deserve to be put on the nice list?
Anything by Mercedes Lackey, but more specifically, Vanyel from The Last Herald Mage trilogy. These books have everything. Plucky animal sidekicks, queer rep, a great magic system, good world building, compelling characters, sadness, happiness. Everything!
Red, Gold and Green. A book cover that has a wonderfully christmasy feel to it.
I reviewed this book and I just happen to think it’s so cute! The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guin. It’s exactly what it says on the cover. The perfect warm hearted Christmas time read.
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 Dragon Prince Trilogy by Melanie Rawn. I love this book series and I think everyone should read it. It has dragons, obvs, a strong female protagonist, a strong male protagonist, compelling villains, an interesting magic system, and fantastic world building. Did I mention the dragons? Plus, look at that beautiful Michael Whelan cover art!
What would your answers be to any of these questions? Do the tag and let me know!
