12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

Hey everyone!

I’m so excited to be doing a Christmas book tag! I saw this tag over on The Book Dutchesses, and it was originally created by Lizzie Loves Books.


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?

Oh there are so many stand alones that I love, so this is a tough one! I’m going to pick 2, because I can’t decide between them.

The Photographer of the Lost by Caroline Scott (REVIEW HERE)

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?

I’m not really a huge fan of romance, but I’m going to say Grace Tempest and Lorcan Furey in the Vampirates series.

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?

Oh this has to be the Rats trilogy by James Herbert! I can’t put in to words how fantastic this trilogy is!

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 think this is fairly obvious, but I am choosing the Vampirates series by Justin Somper.


ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FIVE GOLDEN RINGS.

One ring to rule them all! Who is your favourite Villain/Antagonist?

Another tough one, because there are so many to choose from! But, I will say Pennywise from Stephen King’s IT, even though I am terrified of clowns…

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?

Again, I LOVE SO MANY! But I think I’ll go with Tolkien’s world building in The Lord of the Rings. It is so in depth, and there are so many different parts to it, it’s just incredible.

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?

I don’t read many books with animal sidekicks, but I’ll go with Nailah, Zélie’s lion, in Children of Blood and Bone (REVIEW HERE).

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 always say the same for this type of question, but it has to be The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar (REVIEW HERE).
THERE’S SO MUCH CAKE IN THIS BOOK!

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?

Jack Valentine from the Seekers series by Josie Jaffrey. I read May Day, which is book 1 of the series, earlier in the year, and I absolutely loved it (REVIEW HERE).

ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING.

How about your favourite leading lad?

No doubt about this one, it has to be Eddie Flynn from Steve Cavanagh’s Eddie Flynn series! My favourite book from the series so far is Thirteen (REVIEW HERE).

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.)

Can I say They Don’t Need To Understand by Andy Biersack, even though it isn’t out and I haven’t read it yet?

PURCHASE HERE (affiliate link): Amazon UK

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?

There is still time for this to change, but as it stands, I will say Keep Her Quiet by Emma Curtis (REVIEW HERE).
