‘Tis the season…for a holiday book tag!
Yup, I decided to try my hands at a book tag. So I set to the Googles and stumble across this one on The Sassy Book Geeks page. It loosely based on this one from Lizzie Loves Books.
A 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag! As a Christmas enthusiast I had to do this tag.
Without further ado, let’s go!
On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: A Partridge in a Pear Tree.
The partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favorite stand alone?
Sherlock Holmes as a woman…and a sorceress. I reviewed this one back in February and I loved it! Also, I don’t read many stand alones, and this was one of the few I did read that I loved.
On The Second Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Two Turtle Doves
Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?
Rohan and Sioned of The Dragon Prince trilogy! Their relationship is fire, quite literally.
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 ever read?
I couldn’t think of anything more timely, because I have just recently started reading the newer releases. This trilogy, released back in the 90’s, has everything, romance, political intrigue, fight sequences! Love it!
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 favorite series?
The Crown of Stars series by Kate Elliot is equal parts amazing world building and fantastic character development. I need to re-read these.
On The Fifth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Five Gold Rings!!!
One ring to rule them all! Who is your favorite villain/antagonist?
The scariest villains are the one’s that could exist in real life, and since Voldemort was essentially Hitler with magic. Yeah, scary dude.
On the Sixth day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Six Geese a Laying
Creation is a beautiful things. What is your favorite world/world building?
The Perilous Order of Camelot series has some of the best world building. I mean, it literally starts with the creation of the universe. Gotta love that!
On the Seventh Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Seven Swans a Swimming
Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who is your favorite animal sidekick?
Yfandes is one of my favorite sidekicks. She is a steadfast and sure, which is exactly what Vanyel needs in his life.
On the Eighth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Eight Maids A Milking
Milk is so 18th century. What book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level?
I love the way the hobbits love food and drink. Mushrooms! Second breakfast!
On the Ninth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Nine Ladies Dancing
Dancing is just one skill of a lady. Who is your favorite kickass female lead?
Sarra from Exiles is a fantastic leading lady. She is intelligent and strong willed, but not unwilling to accept help from others.
On the Tenth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Ten Lords A Leaping
Who is your favorite leading lad?
Rohan loves books and really hates the High Prince. Not that he doesn’t deserve it. Did I mention he is also a prince?
On the Eleventh Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Eleven Pipers Piping
What is your favorite book or bookish this about music? (It can be about music, reference music a lot, etc.)
Vanyel wants nothing more than to be a bard and escape his father’s keep. Music is his life. His whole life. Here’s hoping he actually has the bardic gift.
On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Drummers Drumming
What is your favorite book of the year?
This was by far my favorite book this year. And that ending. Oh my goodness that ending! This is a must read for anyone for sure.
How would you answer any of these questions? Let me know!
